wide open spaces

Dear, dear Corinthians, I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection.Continue reading “wide open spaces”

come out

I can so relate to the scene in the movie Frozen where Anna keeps asking Elsa to come out from behind her locked door to play with her. In fact, I cried at that scene in the movie theater. Probably not the norm for that timing in that particular movie, but it struck a chordContinue reading “come out”

love poured red

If I had spoken, it would have likely been grouchy before 8 am. Not my usual early bird chipper. So I posted the following to my personal Facebook page, becauseContinue reading “Am I ever alone?”

The day before I was reminded we need to remember the treasures we have, which may be hidden under all our junk.Continue reading “your big year”

And when we fall, over and over, freedom stands nearby, waiting for our word to step in and help us out from the pit we created. We haveContinue reading “free to choose”
