Coventry Carol

Lullay, Thou little tiny Child, By, by, lully, lullay. Lullay, Thou little tiny Child. By, by, lully, lullayb The days in which God determines Jesus was to arrive here on earth were tremulous ones. Great political unrest, overtaxing, long hard days forced to serve ‘landlords’ not of your choosing. Revolution was constantly simmering when itContinue reading “Coventry Carol”

come-passion

In an interesting unexpected conversation yesterday on the bus, I touched an aspect of God in a way I had not yet done in such a way before. As i was listening to the earnest young missionary from the Latter Day Saints speak about his church having the ‘living prophet’ and 12 apostles, I feltContinue reading “come-passion”

long

it’s hasn’t been long since I saw You last yet somehow it feels like forever The road seems to stretch despite my every step as I wearily attempt to make it back to You The sunrise clouded over, no stars nor sunset to be seen in the evening sky yet a glimmer of hope continuesContinue reading “long”

touchy touchy

There are moments when we don’t want to be touched. When we want to stay entrenched in our fury, stand on our injustices and refuse to allow the pressure to  release. When we want to be right even though a little voice may be poking us to tell us we aren’t. When we have lostContinue reading “touchy touchy”

investing

Invest. Not a word we tend to think about apart from investing with our money. I wouldn’t be here today without the investing that people, in God’s perfect timing, made in my life. When I was at my lowest, love was poured into me. God met me and pulled me out of the pit IContinue reading “investing”

A line…

We spend a great deal of time in a line. Image from: http://www.640toronto.com/files/2014/07/lineUp1.jpg At the grocery store, bank, registration, movie theater or fast food place… like sheep, we automatically join the cue and wait our turn. In Old Testament days, this even happened in the temple: lining up to enter, especially on holy days. LiningContinue reading “A line…”

kind

Everyone needs more kindness in their lives. Aim to deliver. Jesus showed us how to do this, while He was with us, and which was recorded in black, white and sometimes red in our bibles. The red reminds us of His ultimate act of kindness, dying in our place on the cross. The blood thatContinue reading “kind”

unfixed

I’m unfixed. And the truth is, that’s where God meets me – in the mess of my life, in the unfixedness, in the brokenness. Mike Yaconelli I am broken. and I know it. I need putting back together again from my long fall off the wall I hid behind for so long. Parts of meContinue reading “unfixed”

the hues that matter

Today I was struck anew at God’s creation. I went downtown, and people observed every step of the way. Not only do people come in all shapes and sizes, they come in many different hues. Like me, you may be thinking Hugh Jackman, Hugh Laurie or Hugh Dancy (three of my favorite Hugh’s)…but that isContinue reading “the hues that matter”

hope as you step out

Took a huge leap outside my comfort zone today. I trusted God to show up & reveal whatever He wanted to in a few conversations this afternoon. Now, it may seem strange to you that a writer, blogger & singer can get tongue tied, but its true. I am not really comfortable sharing deep stuffContinue reading “hope as you step out”
