A Pull Heavenward ~ A Book Review

A Pull Heavenward ~ A Book Review

The all encompassing description of home as a safe place, the haven for family, a place where we are always welcome or where we establish roots, speaks of an earthly home. It reminds me of the answer one of my students gave me when we studied “homes” in...
Sabbath Offerings ~ Release in the Waiting

Sabbath Offerings ~ Release in the Waiting

I stood on the sidelines of the asphalt court, baked by the hot summer sun. The volley of balls back and forth across the net mesmerized me. I ran to collect scattered balls and threw them back to my mom when she signaled for one. The release of the ball at the right...
Remnants

Remnants

Pieces of felt, scraps of material, and yarn filled a plastic bin to the point the lid barely fit. Remnants of years of teaching peeked out the sides as I worked to declutter a year ago. A teacher saves everything knowing that someday each and every scrap will be put...

A Daily Refining

A Daily Refining

This is my year of surrender. A daily refining of my identity to become the best “me” God created. Letting go to receive the precious grace God holds out freely. A journey of laying down self to make space for the new creation God promises. The process...

Sabbath Offerings ~ Are We Bleeding Out?

Are We Bleeding Out? Brokenness defines us, surrounds us and refines us. A world watches complacent and numb While life passes without a second glance. Daily events interrupt elusive peace, but many of us turn the other way. I ask again, are we bleeding out? When...
