X Does Not Equal Y

“I used to want to fix people, but now I just want to be with them.”   – Bob Goff, author of “Love Does”(mandatory must read for the summer…) Recently I had a conversation with someone who was creating doctrines out of “one-liners,” essentially judging the behaviors of others with consequences they saw fitting from the […]

The Next 90 Days

Posted on

I’m not a consistent blog reader, or writer, obviously.  It goes in waves, sometimes because I have time, sometimes as the crow flies, other times if I’m inspired to write, or read, if there’s a good link from a trusted friend.  Yada, yada. So, this friend who is a missionary is home on furlough.  We […]

On Any Given Day

“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 […]

This is a note to myself and to every. single. stay. at. home. mom. or. person. in. the. whole. entire. world. Side note:  If you’ve ever done, or are interested in doing a Beth Moore study, don’t follow the rules.  Rules and schedules are suggestions and when it comes to one of her studies, one […]

Travel with Intention

My Mom and Dad made it possible for me to join Jason for a few days down in Santa Fe, NM, while he worked earlier this week, by watching our precious offspring.  Jason and I are good about getting out for date nights thanks to generous family members and a fantastic babysitter, but overnights are […]

The Tortoise and the Hare

When I think of turtles, images from Eric Carle’s books come to mind since I have a toddler and these are on my shelves and in my hands most afternoons before nap time. If I said the word “turtle” to my husband, I bet you a zillion dollars visions of pecans covered in caramel covered […]

Was it Venezuela?  Maybe Siberia?  It could have been St. Petersburg, Russia. I don’t remember now. All I know is a million years ago when I was in my young 20’s I met a teenager named Alece Ronzino…we met over a mutual love for the mission field.  I think she was a carnivalite because for […]
