It’s been one of those busy times where I can’t seem to catch my breath. Where I’m more irritated than engaged. When I’m seeing the blue sky outside, but not reveling in it. What is life? A series of irrational to-do lists that seem to multiply like dust bunnies? Or real bunnies? Is it accomplishment? […]

I flipped through channels the other day, landing on this inane show about who looked good in swimsuits and who did not. They profiled an older lady who wore a bikini. When they showed a shot of her backside, the trendy hosts went OFF on her. Words like, “She better hide all that flubber.” or […]

Lord, help me to stay in the moment today, to find a grateful heart, to rejoice in everything. I need Your heart, Your perspective, Your voice every day I walk this earth. Teach me to be compassionate, open, free. Live through me. Love through me. I’m weary, worn out, and needy. But Your word says […]

Lord, I did a silly thing biking in the heat, pushing myself, not drinking water, and now my body and brain are rebelling against me. Please help me rest today, to heal, to find comfort in not doing anything. For a doer like me, that’s hard. But I know You are the God of the […]

Lord, as I go on my bike ride today, I thank You that I have legs to bike, arms to hold the handlebars, and breath in my lungs. Protect me and my riding companions from crazy drivers. As I see the beauty of Your creation, help me pause in my spirit to praise You. And […]

O dear relational God, the Three-in-One, who embodies relationship in every way. Help me to not pass by the people you place in my path today. Help me to open my heart to new folks, to not become embittered against those I know, to give freely of my time, realizing You hold every drop of […]

Dear Jesus, You are it. You’re the One I wake for. Help me today to see You throughout the day. To hear Your voice. To understand Your nuance. To experience You as I serve You. Speak through me. Listen through me. Minister through and to me. Help me to rest in Your forgiveness, to freely […]

This week I want to focus on prayer by, er, praying. I guess that makes sense! Here is my Sunday prayer: Father God, For me to say that to You is a huge thing. As a fatherless girl who had a gaping wound only a daddy could fill, You swept me into Your arms when […]

I’m the weirdo in my little family. I’m the one who insists we venture to the very front of our large suburban church so I can feel more a part of the worship. I’m the one who juts hands into the air, who will stand up when no one stands (in the entire church) because […]

The Lord spoke to me as I jogged by this seemingly dead tree the other day. I’m finally coming to the place where I’d like to write about it. So much of my earlier years felt like this tree–decaying, dried out, devoid of life. Sometimes our early days go this way, don’t they? I’m not […]
