hedgeaway Home

Yesterday, I startled a sweet little bird as I took my Nordic poles out for a spin.  Like the giant to Jack, I must have appeared a formidable threat. Before those of you who have met me laugh too hard at that thought, I don’t mention it because of what I did, but rather whatContinue reading “hedgeaway Home”

talk to me

There are many voices we listen to, but one that can do the most damage if we give it free rein. And it may be impacted by the enemy, but it isn’t him. It’s my, your inner voice.  Our self talk can block us from hearing God’s voice, keeping our minds so humming we are leftContinue reading “talk to me”

scaredy cat, come to the Son

I have lived more of my life than I am comfortable admitting as a scaredy cat. Afraid of what others think, promises  how God would treat me if He really knew all I had done, afraid of making a misstep, afraid of my own shadow. Fear turns into anxiety when it isn’t kept in check.Continue reading “scaredy cat, come to the Son”

take courage

Unhappy people hurt people. If you find yourself belittled, diminished, or humiliated, take courage. It’s not about you! -Brian Houston Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated.

pressed to release His fragrance

I am in a season of being pressed. Not to be broken & destroyed, but so that I can release Him more fully within me & to those around me. Maybe you can relate. I had a glimpse another pressing season was headed my way with some words spoken a few weeks ago, and thenContinue reading “pressed to release His fragrance”

what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

What would you do if you knew that ultimately you could not fail? How do you get strong enough to believe it? Love. Specifically the kind of love God offers all of us. The love that loves us no matter what, always… There is nothing I could do to make You love me more. NothingContinue reading “what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?”

keeper of my heart

In the past few days, a lot has gone amuck in my life. Our dishwasher & dryer both died. My son’s timetable is not right for his grade 12 year. I feel like crap with aches and joint pain. Money is tight, and its a shorter work week now. I just dropped my daughter offContinue reading “keeper of my heart”

meant to say

I have a confession to make. I leave words unspoken more than I like to admit. Important words… I love you. I’m sorry. No. Forgive me. Help. Miss you. Yes. I need You. Moments pass when the words could have been spoken, and I didn’t speak them… Sometimes out of fear the person I speakContinue reading “meant to say”
