Waiting on God

"Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord." Most of us don't like waiting. There are some places for me where my patience abounds but when it comes to myself, I have no ability to wait. My expectations of how fast or how well I do something comes with little to no grace and... Continue Reading →

The Price of Freedom

We know real freedom isn't free. If we look back over all the wars fought, including biblical ones, the price of freedom looks like it is always filled with sacrifice. Before you start throwing stones or sending me negative comments as if I don't know that war and freedom "are" filled with sacrifice, let me... Continue Reading →

Investing Time

Life is made up of a collection of moments. The moment you read this is the only one you have right now. We can’t live in the future of our plans any more than if we spend our days dwelling on the past that we can somehow change it. Those moments are gone. Left to... Continue Reading →

Choosing Victory

Where are you going?

Where are you going? While I was driving to My middle child's allergy appointment I thought about the hundreds of cars on the road. Where is everyone going? I thought about dance recitals and plays, jobs and summer school. I thought about hospitals and funeral homes. I thought about final goodbyes and burying loved ones.... Continue Reading →

Sigh

To describe how you bring light into my life when all seems bleak or bland is without words. I love you more than this faulty English language can say. Perhaps if I spoke another language I could actually put it into words. But for now, this will have to do. Oh me, love. It's the... Continue Reading →

Words are not enough

Words are a sad way to describe love. What could any human language manage to say that rings true? Too small, too faded, to feeble even with the descriptive nature of words. Love is too big, too bold, taking the word “too” and adding it in order to enhance a word so inadequate that we... Continue Reading →

And we danced

The perfect moment when the world slows and everything in my vicinity begins to hum. That moment is when you take my hand, you meet my waist with yours and we begin to dance. It isn't romantical in the sense of perfection. It isn't as if in this moment our love is more or less... Continue Reading →

Let the water drench your clothes and let the water pool at your feet. Let it wash you clean.... Continue Reading →

The world is spinning at an incredible 1,000 miles per hour. Every day goes by so fast and you wake up and realize that so much has changed. you have changed. Sometimes for the better, sometimes it is an awakening to begin again. Time is the currency that we can't control. But there are moments... Continue Reading →

He Always Knows

Yesterday we dropped the van off at the body shop for repair. After being smashed into at 80mph she sure deserves it! Joseph drove me to the shop and back and when we arrived home we did something we have done a million times. I stopped, even though he was already walking away. Without looking... Continue Reading →

As He Goes

Try as he might, there was no rousing me this morning. Though he certainly tried. He littered my face with his kisses. His day about to begin. He made coffee and ironed all the while stopping to plant more love upon my face. The garden of his adoration. With blankets up to my eyes, he... Continue Reading →
