What’s It All About?

What’s It All About?

Sunday holds the top spot on my list of favorite days. After a week’s worth of busy, Sunday smooths my ruffled feathers and fills me with hope for the next week. I hope it does that for you as well. This past Sunday exceeded my greatest expectations. It wasn’t merely the worship that did the […]

You Weren’t Called To Do It All!

You Weren’t Called To Do It All!

Maybe feeling the pressure to meet every single need of everyone in our lives is a “firstborn” thing. Maybe it’s a “being a woman” thing. Or, maybe it’s a “pride” thing. Perhaps, it’s all three rolled up in a giant ball of mistletoe. (I’m thinking some sons and husbands might be reading this, so you […]

“You Think Too Much!”

“You Think Too Much!”

When several people you love spill the same words into your lap, maybe it’s time to give those words some careful thought. Ironically, the words I’ve heard from the mouths of at least 5 or 6 friends over the decades has been, “You think too much!” It’s true. I love to think! I love the […]

A Thanksgiving of Empty Chairs and James Taylor

A Thanksgiving of Empty Chairs and James Taylor

James Taylor and Carole King won the top spot of my most-played music last week. Their playlists repeated so many times that I felt an urge to resurrect my old Earth shoes and bellbottom jeans.

The Day Moses and Elijah Couldn’t Finish Strong

Since basketball season is upon us, my man carted a couple of our grandchildren to the gym Saturday afternoon to review some fundamentals. I stayed home; but if I know him, there were two words that most likely rang out loudly and often, “Finish strong!” I’ve heard these words pour out of his mouth with […]

Just Breathe

Just Breathe

A few heartbeats away lies the holiday season. I know, I know. Just the mention of it covers your now rapidly-beating heart with a blanket of stress. Gifts. Parties. Decorations. Events. Dinners. So much to do in so little time. However! I’d like to slow your heart rate for a few minutes with a thought […]

Learning to Be Real

Learning to Be Real

In the children’s story The Velveteen Rabbit, the long-eared nursery newcomer marveled at the lifelike qualities of the old skin horse. As their time together turned into meaningful conversation, the rabbit admitted his ignorance in understanding how one becomes real. The wise old horse then explained that it not only took a willingness to be loved […]

Faith Like An Onion

Faith Like An Onion

In a corporate leadership meeting a few years back, our young, overly-caffeinated seminar leader paced like a caged tiger as he spouted ways for us to better connect with our team of employees. To help us evaluate ourselves, he asked us to take out our cell phones and text this message to three people closest […]
