Can You Be Found?

“But it isn’t easy,” said Pooh. “Because Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is to go where they can find you.” -A.A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner   Do you have a place where you can be found? A place that is […]

Goals and the Real Miracle

Goals and the Real Miracle

  Goals. The mere word makes me panic. My distaste began in the summer of 1977. I had just finished 7th grade and purchased a large sheet of poster board. I wrestled it home on my bike. Then I drew horizontal lines across the page and scrawled Ten Daily Goals, and for good measure added […]

Songs in the Night

Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night,..” Job 35:10 Do you ever wake up with a tune in your head? God does this, speaks to us through song. Recently I greeted the morning as a song rang through my mind. I got up and searched my hymnal for the accompanying words. […]

When Little Servant Girls Come

It was a Friday night when I inadvertently tangled myself in my daughter’s drama.  Anna’s friend was staying the night. She was this cute thing. Light brown braids, little button nose, bright eyes, tiny frame and a high pitched voice. The girl was always polite, but I noticed that she watched me closely and it made […]

Capturing Thanks

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians  5:16-18 ESV   A year ago I began a thankfulness journal and kept it handy throughout the day.

Dancing With Daffodils

When my son was young, I used to spend a lot of time in the car. One day, he and his friends hopped into the backseat of my van. Bottoms settled, and seatbelts clicked. One of the boys held a small computer while the other two looked on. No one noticed how tightly they were […]

One, Two, Three Jump!

One, Two, Three Jump!

Everything has a starting point. A place where we face insecurities and meet the unknown. The moment demands we gather courage, clutch it to our chest, and go. The water might look icy and gray, but with companions on either side you are willing to jump in. Willing to swim. So, on the count of […]

Emerging

The blanket of water curves and with a steady whoosh slips over the edge. It rolls downward in one smooth motion. Flat and glassy at the top, the waters become choppy on their descent, then foam before slipping under the footbridge. The sun’s reflection glints and sparkles off miniature waves like thousands of diamonds. Today, […]

An Unexpected Room

I wish I had my camera the day I happened upon this tree. When I returned to the spot for the picture, the sun was shining and had muted the effect. On the day I discovered it, the sky was overcast and grey, the street slick and dark. I turned my eyes toward the tree […]
