A while ago I wrote a blog where I mentioned my expectations of perfection. At the time it garnered a fair amount of conversation. Apparently, others see this propensity in me as well. And, although I now see it very clearly, I’m still unsure of how to change it because I’m not sure where to… Continue reading Perfect…Just Perfect
On the way to church recently my 7 year old daughter asked, “Momma, what are feelings?” I started to say, “They’re how you feel. I mean they are what you feel…I mean…ahhh!!!” I couldn’t figure out how to define it without using the word “feel.” I thought if I used the word emotion it would… Continue reading What are feelings anyway?
The other day I was reading the story of Elijah and the Baal priests. How God rained down fire from heaven and burned up an altar saturated with water. How Elijah prayed and God answered. How Elijah was blessed to see the power of God first hand and to be a part of the display… Continue reading The Rest of the Story…or Running Away
I’m in a season of blog starting. I start them and save them and kind of forget about them. I think it is because I want so desperately to be encouraging and sometimes I’m just not. Sometime I’m just an all out mess. And my blogs can reflect that mess quite well. And I have… Continue reading A Strengthening Struggle
I’ve become a late-night person…through no design of my own. I desperately need more hours in the day…more days in the week…and more sleep in my bed. Last night as I lay my head down on my crazy configuration of multiple fluffy pillows, I began to pray for friends and family, for my children and… Continue reading Whatever It Takes

Because I want to write now. I want to write something profound and moving and well-written. The other day I… Continue reading Words in my Head
It’s a bit earlier than I planned to get up, but up I am. Thanks to one pain in the rear Labrador Retriever….and, I think, thanks to the Lord. As I lay on the sofa trying to get my mind to stop moving so I could fall back to sleep, I decided maybe this was… Continue reading Wanna Stop Swerving?
It was about this time 6 years ago when my husband left. And although in many ways I’m stronger and better…the repercussions still vibrate through my life. In the midst of something wonderful, I can feel the stirrings of fear seeping into my thoughts, the beat of insecurity pulsing through me, and the blending of… Continue reading Had You Known?

There are things that bring back very vivid memories for me…some painful some not. This evening I was playing through some praise music I found in my organizing spree and I began to play “Mighty to Save.” Everyone needs compassion Love that’s never failing Let mercy fall on me Everyone needs forgiveness The kindness of… Continue reading Life in the Back Row
