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 […]

Obedience

Posted on

Have you ever been disobedient? It’s a word we like to throw around with our children, not even throw it around but use it with firm voices and wish for it with all of our hearts.

Update on My Mom

Posted on

There is cancer in my mom’s body. Though I am her daughter and will/would fight for her to make it go away, over the past 3 years I’ve been spending much time in prayer and observation, watching helpless at times, sharing tears, laughing when the very thing may seem disrespectful and out of place…but I’ve […]

It was good for our hearts as we deepened laugh lines, tuned our ears and hearts toward one another and God, and allowed our eyes […]

What If…We Didn’t Fear Change?

Posted on

I wrote this blog post about a month ago…and, well, March 15th is the day after the day after tomorrow. Today a friend posted a motivational word photo which read, “Don’t be Afraid of Change.”  Umm, we are on the precipice of change, like uber, major, big time, anything goes type of change, and I, for […]

Year of Jubilee

Posted on

They say the 7th year is the year of Jubilee.  A year where debts are cancelled and everyone knows and breathes freedom.  A season of celebration. It’s been 7 years since our son Noah passed away.  God has already shown Jason and me how this year is going to be profound and special, though we […]
