How do I Pray?

Posted on

Sometimes I pray like this: (*closing my eyes as I type so it’s prayer and not prose…excuse typos…) Father, I love you! You are good and holy and lovely! You are BIG and I’m NOT! I’m grateful for Your grace each day, thankful for Your love, in awe of Your mercies, humbled by Your constant […]

Snow Globe

Posted on

Father, thank You for the beautiful snow falling, snow I didn’t even see in the forecast, a detail I guess I missed.  I sit here, looking out the window as it swirls, gaining in size and speed, and I feel as though I’m in a snow globe, wondering when all that is shaken up will […]

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 […]

Trekking Around the World

Posted on

Remember this? It’s been a while.  I wouldn’t expect you to, but I sure do.  One night, 5 years ago last November, we had gotten some yummy Chinese take-out and were sitting in Noah’s room at The Children’s Hospital.  As we finished up and started cracking open our fortune cookies, I grabbed one and said, […]

If You Ask About a Muffin…

Posted on

A couple of weeks ago I was looking in the display at a restaurant at what looked like a scrumptious gluten free blueberry muffin.  Of course I knew I wasn’t going to buy it, one because it’s still laden with sugar whether it’s gluten free or not, and two, because like most baked goods, it […]

Tebowing

Posted on

So, unless you are a mole, living in a hole, you’ve heard of Tim Tebow by now.  Even if you aren’t a fan of the Broncos, don’t care for football, and really only watch the Superbowl for either the half-time show or commercials or attend the parties just for the food, I would guess if […]

Gotta have faith!

Posted on

Today my mom starts chemo. I wish there was no such thing as cancer, sickness or any type of disease or pain, suffering, or heartache. I wish magic was real, fairy dust worked, and really awesome things happened when I twitched my nose…not only cures for disease, no more famines and war, but even instantaneous […]
