Driving home this afternoon I suddenly realized I was not paying attention to what I was doing….driving! I was lulled by the GPS guiding me along the route and I was really very unaware of my surroundings. It has been a long 24 plus hours, a dear friend went to heaven this morning. Back to my […]


and He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new…” Revelation 21:5 My eyes were purely delighted by the new spring green as traveling about this spring. Capturing every piece of imagery I could as I prayed through to each destination. It was a sensational overload for me, streaks of […]

Full Surround

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1 When you give an opinion, speak a truth, extend a piece of your […]

He calms the storm

So when I saw this particular picture I saved it. I find it captivating. As I reflect on this image again this morning many thoughts come to mind. Good and evil. Right side, wrong side. Battle. Narrow way. Destruction vs restoration. But I am landing here on “Love is patient,” 1 Corinthians 13:4. It was […]

Unfailing Comfort

“A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of the joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, […]


“Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends…” John 15:13 As a nation today we remember all of those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. What words can I place here that would encompass the rippling depth of this day and life […]

Safest Position

“Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 27:3-4 So I was just reading my Bible and went to my devotional list and noticed I started one entitled “Prayers for Ferocious Warriors.” […]

Riches of Prayer

“The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another, and stars differ from star in splendor.” 1 Corinthians 15:41 I could see the stars through the skylight in my bedroom.  It was about 1:20 last night when I was awakened. I needed to find peace because something was causing me […]

Tenderest Love Song

“worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” Psalm 100:2 I was never so struck by a melody as I was yesterday. My heart felt as if it would burst and it literally stopped my being.  This is Ali. Yes, he is a Robin that was rescued and has not left the […]


“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you, When you walk through fire, you will not be burned, the flame will not set […]

Lift Your Head Up

“and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 This a great verse but what about when you are in a moment where you can not receive the cheering on. “In all things” takes us to stretch. […]

Precious Shine

“Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life.” Isaiah 43:4 Precious defined as of great value, not to be wasted or treated carelessly. And that refers to you sweet reader. You are precious!  Take hold […]

Become a God-Finder

“We may ignore, but we cannot evade the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito.” CS Lewis Beautiful day! Perfect weather for a walk in the woods. So off we went. A little collecting and brainstorming about some projects. I snapped some photos and stopped to listen to the […]

Absolutely Boundless

“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear it’s sound but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:8 The wind is immense outside my window this morning. It has called me awake. And I think, is that you […]
