4.6.2020 – “We Will Feast”

This is another one of my favorites by Sandra McCracken that I want to share this morning. This song brings courage, joy, and hope, especially in times of uncertainty, and in times of trouble, in times of waiting— for me, it’s a beautiful reminder of what’s ultimately to come for us as beloved children of… Read More 4.6.2020 – “We Will Feast”

4.2.2020 – Like an old, favorite sweater…

How can we comfort one another in these kinds of times? We can find comfort by dwelling with Him in His Word, and reminding one another of His promises. And when we overflow in joy and in faith, we can let it overflow out into the atmosphere… I’ll admit, it’s a struggle in this time….… Read More 4.2.2020 – Like an old, favorite sweater…

3.20.2020 – SOS

This song came on yesterday… and something about it felt like the “cry of many out there in the world” right now.

2.10.2020 – You Don’t Have to Hide

I remember listening to this song years ago… Thinking, “Wow, someone gets me. That’s what I do. I hide.” Something about this song, something in the way that I connected with these lyrics made me realize that I was hiding in my life, in so many ways. Little by little the Lord has taken/is taking… Read More 2.10.2020 – You Don’t Have to Hide

Music is so important in my life. For many years I used it in the wrong way, letting it bring me down even further, letting it set me back –further in the darkness.

12.23.19 – This Overwhelming Hunger

This overwhelming hunger… This hunger to seek and find, to learn, to grasp, to know, to understand… At times the intensity of this hunger seems to consume me and I risk almost wanting to shut it down because it’s so much, it’s constant, and sometimes I risk unloading too much on other people when I… Read More 12.23.19 – This Overwhelming Hunger

As I sit here this morning, I can’t help but notice the roaring fire in our wood stove… I’m so thankful for that fire.

8.7.19 – Another dot connected, another clue…

The Lord gave me another clue this morning about who I am.
