For the remainder of December, some friends and I are choosing to see just one thing each day. We are taking our cues from Psalm 9:1-2. Join us? Here is the focus for each day: Write down one thing you're thankful for Choose to remember something good that's happened Smile Sing or listen to one song and… Continue reading TWL: Just One Thing Series (Day 2)
Yesterday, a friend gently nudged my weary soul with an idea. I had just finished telling her that this is my favorite time of year, but due to the nature of my job, I don't get to pause and snuggle into the season like I used to. She understood, and said again, "Just one… Continue reading This Written Love Series: Just One Thing
As the debate began, I found myself overwhelmed with a feeling of sadness, but I don't think it was mine. Earlier in the evening, I was picking up some items at a local store and two young boys walked past me. They had their skateboards and backpacks and were talking to each other. I say… Continue reading What I think God really cares about, in light of this election.

Yesterday didn't start out like a good dream. Unless of course, you consider waking up to a filthy kitchen a dream come true. My first moments of consciousness were welcomed by the irritation that comes when the young men I live with don't do what they say they are going to do. Instead of a… Continue reading Big Dreams Start Here
In the last blog, I invited you to join me on a journey. We asked God to love us up close, intimately. I don't know about you, but when I think of intimacy, visions of candles, sweet conversation over coffee, and hopefully chocolate drift through my mind. I daydream longingly about all the possibilities of… Continue reading Intimacy Exposed
For the past few years, I have prayed and asked God for a word that I might focus on in the year to come. The last two years my words were order and restoration. This year, my word both frightens and excites me. It is INTIMACY. The following are definitions from the Webster's Dictionary 1828… Continue reading Love Me Up Close…
