Your love language

I have been leading a book study by Danny Silk for the past five weeks, which touched on the 5 Love Languages a few weeks ago. I was struck by the truth that I need to be a student of everyone I love, to know how to best love them. Then the lightening bolt ofContinue reading “Your love language”

at any age or stage, your life matters

It’s so much not about your age, but the life you’ve lived in those years. I have a few friends who have recently celebrated (some reluctantly) significant birthdays. Age is not a big deal to me.

Sunday Psalm: time well spent

A Sunday well spent brings a week of content. Sunday. The day we are urged to rest. Connect with what matters most.

It is the one thing I like best afterContinue reading “the magnetic pull of focus”

Aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.  1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 (ESV) Stand in line at the checkout, and the intimate details of people’s lives are exposed for allContinue reading “timeless living”
