Alive
I write.  A lot.  It's part of who I am.  You know how people say they're "living their best lives"?  That's me when I'm writing.  My best life being lived with every stroke of the keyboard. ... and as beautiful as that feels, God's reminded me in this 41st...

Stretch
For years and years, God has given me a single word for the year.  Most years He gives me a bible verse to accompany it.  He made this mind.  He knows what works for me.  | One word.  One verse.   One year. Keep it simple, sweetie.  Right? Most years I go i...

Faithful. True. Brand New.
I woke up and knew it was time to write.  My plans today have shifted from attending church in person and praying for God's kids there to attending church online and praying for God's kids here.  God's really been teaching me over the last ten years of so t...

Feelings
Feelings are peculiar things.  They can sweep us off our feet in moutain top moments. They can feel as though they are drowning us in the valleys in between. They are fickle.  They are fleeting. And can I tell you this, my friend?  They are everywhere. Toda...

Paper Plate Love
Morning traditions.   Either waffles or sausage biscuits.   Every. Single. Day.   Always on a paper plate.  Because I love them, and God taught me a while back that if I had to pick between time with them or washing dishes to always choose the paper plate. ...

I feel ___.
I feel ____. Insert your feeling of choice here. I feel sad. I feel happy. I feel disappointed. I feel bullet-proof. You get the idea. God gave us our feelings.  He made every part of us.  That means that they are inherently not a BAD thing. What we do wi...

The Space Between
The air on Saturday is just different. It's the space between. Room to move. Room to breathe. Space to stop being a 'human-doing', but instead a human who knows how to BE just right where they are in any given moment. This photo is at the top of my prayer ...

Evil - there's nothing "right" about it.
It all makes me hurt... and I can't quite get my words together coherently about what I'm seeing on my news feed.  I'll ask you to forgive me in advance, because there's a high probability I'll be all over the place with this post. 8/12/17.  A day I spent k...

Well, you're there, aren't you, sweetie? I love you VERY much.
Martha Smith captured my heart from the first time I met her in 2001. I walked into the doors of a community group we attended...  trembling, shy, and ready to be anywhere else but where I was.   This lady named Martha that I met, though, s he seemed pretty...

Mornings with Martha
Every morning at 7:31.That's when I called Ms. Martha . Before her call from her son for the morning, and after I dropped my two sons off for the morning. Two very different seasons of life with 40 years between us, but that never made one bit of difference...
