A Few of My Favorite Things

Starting the year off with Scripture is a good thing. Finishing is even better. I thought I’d share some of my favorite verses with you. May you be blessed as you read and internalize these verses. “For I satisfy the weary ones and refresh everyone who languishes” (Jeremiah 31:25) “Although the Lord has given you […]

Lions and Narnia and Little Women Oh My

I saw two movies today, both familiar. One: Narnia. In English, no doubt. We’ve read the series to our children and have them on tape, so I am very familiar with the storyline. Perhaps that’s why I was surprised at what impacted me. First, it was Aslan’s death. Something clicked inside my head, a little […]

Did you know there was more?

I’ve been working through issues (or “ish” as my friend Jen calls them) in my life lately. (Actually, being the overly introspective sort, I’m constantly refining and redefining my ish–it’s a weird mental hobby of mine!) I chatted with my personal coach about my plethora of ish. She asked me if I’d read the serenity […]

I found this verse today and it blessed me. I pray it blesses you as well. Isaiah 58:8-12 “Then your light will break out like the dawn, And your recovery will speedily spring forth; And your righteousness will go before you; The glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, […]

Everything

There’s a song I can’t get through without weeping called “Everything” by LifeHouse. God’s been whispering the words of that song to my heart for years now, even before LifeHouse penned it. Am I your everything? He asks. I hope so, I say. When the song reaches the crescendo to “You’re all I want. You’re […]

Things Fine in Our Corner of France

Things Fine in Our Corner of France

Parts of Paris suburbs are burning and violence has erupted in pockets around the city of lights. But I wanted to reassure you that here in Southern France, things are fine. There have been sporadic trashcan burnings in Nice (about a half hour from us) and some violent eruptions in Marseille (2+hours away). Take this […]

Crosses from the Dentist Chair

I’ve been visiting the dentist a lot. Several weeks ago, my hubby was sweet and decided to take me out to dessert. We walked to a local pizza place, sat outside and ordered ice cream. No, it wasn’t Rocky Road. Just pistache (pistachio for you Americans). And, said pistache had a wee pebble within its […]

Freedom from My Tyrannical Self

Our family has been watching Lakepointe DVDs for church on Sunday. We’re a little behind, so we’re currently listening to Steve Stroope speak about humility, his May and June series. It’s been a great reminder about what humility is and what it isn’t. Something he said really struck me. I guess I’ve always thought of […]

When the Outsider Knew

The Lord gave me a thought today on my run. I was thinking about Jesus and what a humiliation it must’ve been for Him to hang there naked as an innocent God/man. Then I remembered these words: “When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, […]
