What if…?

What if this post-loss ‘new normal’ is the place where God has been trying to get me, developing me for, preening me to live? What if the ‘new normal’ is really the age-old ‘normal’ that Providence has had for me for centuries?  “For we are Gods masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,… Continue reading What if…?

Unashamed

I was two years old when I stood up in the back of a church sanctuary, on a pew and hollered out “amen!” In a way that only a toddler can. As the story goes, The pastor stopped his sermon, the sanctuary grew quiet, and all was still with a little tiny 2 foot tall… Continue reading Unashamed

Chicken Nuggets & Hot Dogs

Everyone’s heard that we go through different “phases of life”… Right? But what about the phases where you’re running your fastest, working your hardest, doing your best (and then some) juggling emotions (mine, his, theirs…) and clocks and grocery shopping and laundry and cleaning and maybe even working in the big wide world… And your… Continue reading Chicken Nuggets & Hot Dogs

Purposeful Passion

I was asked recently this question:  What is your God-designed purpose? Your zone? Your passion? Your “sweet-spot”?  The place where when you’re in this place, the world fades all around you and you are “all in”? Some people don’t have that place… The answer to those questions is ominous at best. So often we think… Continue reading Purposeful Passion

It intrigued me as it seems like such a simple phrase,only 7 words…yet holds such depth. When you lose joy, you lose strength.

Seeing the Invisible

Air is so often something we term “invisible”. It cannot be seen or heard. It cannot be felt. It cannot be smelled or tasted. We know it exists, logically, but we cannot experience it…Until it starts to move. Then, we call it wind. We still cannot taste or smell it, but we can feel it. We… Continue reading Seeing the Invisible

The Reward

I like rewards. I’ll be the first to “go against the grain” in admitting it. It is extremely difficult for me to feel I deserve a reward and not get it. That’s called “pride”… And I’m not proud of it. But I tell you this to remind you that I am human and anything but… Continue reading The Reward
