Guest Post: Thankfulness

Posted on

Thankfulness entails honesty.  Why pretend when God knows the deepest parts of our hearts?  The moment I realized there was no such thing as a secret between me and God, my awe of Him increased, along with my love for Him.  I breathed in at that moment the truth that God loves me, as is, […]

On Any Given Day

Posted on

“We’re not keeping quiet, not on your life!  Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.  There’s far more here than meets the eye.  The things we see now are […]

Walking, Part 2

Posted on

My mom’s not a huge fan of crowds but she wanted to do this walk.  She didn’t want to stay for the closing ceremonies or anything like that.  She said walking together was her celebration, so that’s just what we did. Three generations, riding the Light Rail at the wee hours…HOW AWESOME DOES MY MOM […]

So, today I was supposed to meet my mom at her chemo appointment at 11:30. She had forewarned me that the room wasn’t really that big and there may not be a lot of space…that I may be bored just sitting there with her for 2 hours while she has “poison”, as she calls it, […]

Boobies

I have to say, it is so very refreshing to be in a setting where, what was once private and hush hush, can be spoken of with earnestness, sincerity, and candid authenticity. (I know that is quite a list of words but Em and I have been reading the original Nancy Drew books, and boy […]

The "C" Word

Posted on

Cancer is like saying #$%^&*. It’s got six letters but it’s a four-letter word. I’ve never liked the word cancer. Merriam Webster defines it four ways: a northern zodiacal constellation between Gemini and Leo a malignant tumor of potentially unlimited growth that expands locally by invasion and systemically by metastasis; an abnormal bodily state marked […]
