I want to share something that God is reminding me of this morning with the hope that it brings encouragement to you.  Are you familiar with St. Patrick’s Breastplate?  It’s a powerful prayer that begins in this way:

They named her after me. Her middle name is in my honor. But I won’t get to hold my precious granddaughter until I meet her in the Life that is coming.

And the tears begin to flow again as I write.

My daughter in law was four and a...

Growing up, my dad was my hero. He was everything I wanted to become. He was strong, yet playful. His courage taught me how to stand up for those in need. He was daring and always dreaming up and investing in our next adventure. He could...

A friend of mine wrote yesterday of the various trials that she is currently under. Her list was long and weighty. They say that when it rains, it pours and this dear woman is in a deluge. I bet you’ve been in them yourself with no umbrella in...

We went on a family vacation last month and I sat and watched as my family walked around a lake. I’d been there a few years before and had run around it, not satisfied by mere walking, my energy exploded out of my feet.  Now it was my victory to...

I am going to my niece’s wedding September 1st, and I have no idea what I’m going to wear. I don’t own anything that is pretty, wedding-ish, and FITS. “Fits” being the operative word. Plus it’s going to be roaring hot and I’ve been instructed to...

Dear Summertime Friends,

I confess it—I have an iPhone. A love-hate relationship with my iPhone. Love the photo and video quality. Love a few of the apps (particularly the FIFA World Cup app this summer). Hate the fact that I feel tied to...

Are you a person who when “things” aren’t going well look for someone to blame and that person is someone ELSE? Or are you one who thinks that it must be YOU who is doing something wrong bringing it upon yourself – though you have no clue as to...

Yesterday my son was holding his 15-month-old daughter when she made her desires known.  Her desire was to go into our bedroom and the door was closed.  It was shut for a reason.  For the time being, it was closed particularly to her.  She...

The fires of summer have destroyed La Veta Pass.   Eden beauty incinerated.  The fires this season spread and pop up like measles all over the western states. News came they have engulfed the home of friends.  Nothing left but smoldering ash.  ...

Stop for a moment. Stop reading even and listen. Just give it 30 seconds.

I did and heard the low sounds of the television. The World Cup was on and my husband was catching up on highlights. I heard the occasional call of a nearby bird and...

I love our zoo.  The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo at its elevation claims to be the highest in the States and it certainly is one the best.  Yes, I’m probably biased.  We were members when our children were young and now they are members themselves....

I always warned my sons not to hold a young woman’s hand until they were very serious about her and their relationship.  It may seem a simple thing, I would tell them, but it’s an intimate act that conveys a sense of being a couple.  A...

What would it be like to burst with joy and feel ten feet tall?(1) If that were available, where would you find it, and how would you make it last?

As Jesus says in the gospel of Matthew, the next chapter of our story begins with "the renewal of all things," by which he means the earth we love in all its beauty, our own selves, and the things that make for a rich life: music, art, food,...

Dear Friends,

I write these letters, for the most part, to people who want to have a richer life with God. (A richer life period, which we know only flows out of a richer life with God.)

We want to draw closer and closer; it is the...

My awakening began with two simple experiences. The first came through touching wet granite.

I am a writer by trade. Add to this occupation the average person’s basic online consumption, and the result is, I find myself in front of screens...
