grace in judgment’s place

I didn’t get my writing down when I usually do today. I normally rise & shine with the birdies, and write early before my day gets full, before distractions rear their heads off the pillows 🙂 or my work shift starts. I started a new medication to help me cope with a new to meContinue reading “grace in judgment’s place”

moments like this

We have a desire to live our lives until the next big moment. To win the lottery, or award, whatever the big moment may look like to you. But waiting for your next big moment leaves you missing the hundreds of special moments in between…. Like your child saying I love you for the firstContinue reading “moments like this”

tick off the to-do list

There is almost nothing more satisfying to an organizer than. being able to check an item off their to-do list. Organizers naturally love to make lists, and I am sure this characteristic has its perfect mirror in God.  Because He didn’t just make the planet, He planned it. I have a tendency to plan andContinue reading “tick off the to-do list”

hand in pocket

I have done many things I am not proud of over the years, but one of the most awkward in the moment came to mind again recently… Hubby & I were on a date at Harvey’s. We moved to stand at the viewing/make it be made area after ordering, and I was chatting away toContinue reading “hand in pocket”

true North

Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey is one of my least favorite characters of the 6 novels written by Jane Austen. Not because she has been poorly written, but because of the mirror it reflects of my own past. I find her character uncomfortable, as it reminds me of who I used to be in aContinue reading “true North”

snapshots along the way: inbetween

In between the tomb and the reveal was time. Time spent in flustered confusion. Waterworks of weeping. Loud lamenting. Deep sorrow. Grief. Not only over the One nailed to the tree, but also for their betraying brother who ended his life distraught over his part in harming the One they all loved. They lost JudasContinue reading “snapshots along the way: inbetween”

how the weight of His glory can fall like snow

How much does a snowflake weigh? Someone who measures such things determined that an individual snowflake weighs 0.02* grams. At that weight it would take 50 flakes to make a gram. For comparison, a Hershey’s kiss weighs 4.7 grams – equal to about 235 snowflakes. There are about 95 kisses in a pound. Using the kiss-to-snowContinue reading “how the weight of His glory can fall like snow”

hiding place- when is the right time to retreat?

You are my hiding place; You will protect me from trouble & surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7 NIV God’s my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore, throws garlands of hosannas around my neck. Psalm 32:7 MSG I have learned the hard way that every time is the best time to retreatContinue reading “hiding place- when is the right time to retreat?”

time after time

Today, I am both humbled and grateful to have been invited to guest blog for Remade Ministries. Beth Kinder and I met on Twitter this fall,  both passionate about God & seeing women be set free into the fullness He has for them. Guest blogging for the first time was a wee bit nerve wracking,Continue reading “time after time”
