Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all... (Emily Dickinson)   My spirit needs hope as badly as my body needs water.  Blessedly, I can go to the sink... READ MORE

If I had everything I ever wanted but didn't have Jesus, I would have nothing.  If I have nothing but do have Jesus, I have everything.

 

The prayer of my heart today —no, more than just today is, "Jesus, I give you everything.  I...

It’s 9:30pm and the horizon is glowing.  From my deck I can see spots of red where homes are burning.  I pray.

 

The fire that burned in our community a year ago destroyed over 340 homes.  It stopped mere feet from our own...

On my walk this morning, I was remembering goodness.  Remembering miracles, really.  And thanking God.  I'm surrounded by miracles.  The truth is, I'm a walking miracle!  (And I bet you are, too!)  On my regular walk I pass by the Open...

I love to worship God.  (As much as I love it, you'd think I'd be spending more time doing it.  Well...I'm going to!)  Our God loves it when we spend time simply adoring him!  Shifting the gaze of my heart onto his beauty and goodness and away...

Yesterday morning, John shared this story with me: When Dallas Willard was asked by a friend, "How do I best teach people about Jesus?" Willard thought, then replied, "You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life."

I like this time of night.  The house is quiet save for when the wind blows the aspen branches too close to the window.  They scratch to get in.  Maybe they don’t want to get in at all but are simply asking for attention.  Have you...

You’re not supposed to blog on Fridays.  Or so I’ve been told.  But I am not good at timing these things.  Nor at following directions as to what I’ve been told. The thing is, Friday or not, I need help.

 

So I...

I'm on a "business" "ministry" trip!  Here I am, all grown up and traveling by my lonesome.  Just me and Jesus all the way to Dallas where the grass is green and the trees have leaves on them!  Yay!  I left a snowstorm for this!  I'm attending/...

I stopped getting the newspaper years ago because my heart couldn’t take it.  I would open it up and weep.  I didn’t know my tears were intercession, but they were.  They were then and they are now.

 

It’s been a week.  2:...

I just had my picture taken.  Really, no big deal, right?  I'm doing some audio recordings and thought, hey—let's take a picture and I'll put it on my Facebook page. (I'm trying to become social media savvy woman.)  So, a friend took two pictures...

I’ve been thinking a lot about Mary Magdalene lately.  Especially her experience on that first Easter morning that took place just a moment ago.  You remember how it went—on the third day, at the crack of dawn, at the first possible moment, Mary...

I am marinating in this passage these days:

John 14:7-11 (NKJV)

“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”

Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it...

In the light of recent tragedies, my desire to create a stunning, memorable and holy Christmas this year has paled.  A little.  Yet, if I'm honest, the desire does remain in tact just a breath beneath the surface.  Last year, at the peak of my...

My mother told me that “Good things come to those who wait” and usually when the thought of waiting felt too much to bear.  Cookies to come out of the oven.  Christmas morning to arrive.  A graduation.  A boyfriend.  A dream.  Waiting is hard.  A...
