I’m so excited to be able to attend the Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization next October 16–25 in Cape Town South Africa, as one of 400 American delegates. I’ll need to raise over $4000.00 to get there. So I decided to combine my love of photography with my need to raise support. Here’s how […]

Untying

My heart’s been atangle bound by chords of language these past two years Even today telephone to ear mouth to receiver I stuttered speech unintelligible Two years old I am A toddler’s bumbling of language on my tongue A tear slipped out as I said au revoir words of yearning and goodbye O to be […]

Star Wars

Star Wars

I admit it, folks. I love Star Wars. LOVE it. Totally. I know I’m not supposed to. All that talk of the force flowing through all living things. And midiclorians (not sure how those are spelled)—what’s with that? I don’t think I have any midiclorians roaming my bloodstream. Anywho, I’ve shared this one before, but […]
