Have you ever had one of those bleh sort of days? When the mundane rules and the body moves slow and the cozy sounds delightful? It’s a bleh sort of day over here. No downer moods. Simply a sense of a low-key day. My body doesn’t feel energized. I’m a bit…(Read More)

Do you ever feel like an opportunity is too much work? Too many hurdles to overcome? It would be better to just skip? Maybe it’s just me. I knew days before that the meteor shower would happen in the wee hours on Friday morning. But the idea of rousing myself, much less my children…(Read More)

It all began as a pretty typical girls’ night in – snacking, chatting, laughing, and (perhaps) a little dancing in the living room. But somewhere along the line, as we got to know each other a little better, we came across a beautiful discovery: our shared passion for creating. One girl, new to me, heard I…(Read More)

The Scandalous Miracle

He took the news like a punch in the gut, the breath shoved out of his lungs; his dream dying right before his eyes. How could she do this? He knew what the law demanded. But he couldn’t imagine being the one to abandon her to her certain fate: death beneath a heap of…(Read More)

God and the Waves

Crashing waves roll in, never ceasing. Listen for the pounding presence A whisper, a roar Overwhelming and powerful.

The Stillness Grey

by

Fallen leaves embrace dark corners outside the ground floor. Pushed aside, off the trail; product of a few, fenced trees. They are left to be forgotten amidst a concrete and civilized world Until carried away by the promised rain. Layers of dust removed; purity replaces former adulteration Penetrating even the most shadowed spaces, As living…(Read More)

Declare!

by

For me it all started with a single, seemingly random question, “Do you have a blog?  Because if you did, I would read it.” A sweet friend asked me in passing one day and I’m sure she had no idea the seed she planted.  I was tempted to simply take her question as the…(Read More)

Steve proposed to me on the way up to Mount Evans in Colorado. The setting was breathtaking – surrounded by pine trees, with a touch of snow on the ground, and an amazing panoramic view of snow-capped mountains nearby. We revisited this spot on our recent vacation. The trees were taller and some new campfire…(Read More)

Face-to-Face

by

With Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) now past, the next “feast” God set in place is actually a fast, Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement. So, a (hopefully) really brief history: The Day of Atonement is first mentioned in Leviticus 23:26-32. Basically what happened was the high priest would take one…(Read More)
