The Season of Joy and Living in Egypt

The Season of Joy and Living in Egypt

It is the season of joy. The Christ child has come, the divine become human, to bridge the chasm our God-rejection created. Holiness proffered by grace, atonement procured by suffering…hope secured for eternity. For me, personally, this season, the blessings abound. Time to read snuggled up with my children each day. A refrigerator stocked full […]

Quiet and Rest for the Still Grieving Heart

Quiet and Rest for the Still Grieving Heart

I just want to do. I’m always in need of a project, or a cause. Something big, something tough, something worthy that I can sink my teeth into and pour all of my energy into and get consumed by. Hours of toil, mind-numbing problem-solving, energy-draining effort – they all make me feel productive. Useful. Alive. […]

The Kiss

The Kiss

I found the verse on one of my “I just need to hear a word from the Lord” random Bible openings. I’d already done my regular, organized devotion, but felt like I needed more words from Him. I do this periodically – just open up and see where I land. This time it was on […]

The Ways of the Lord are Right

The Ways of the Lord are Right

I’m just always amazed by how much the Lord speaks through scripture when I’m actually paying attention. I would wager that making me pay attention might be the biggest spiritual benefit for me from Dominic’s death. Recently I’ve been reading the book of Hosea. Yes, I referenced these verses in an earlier post, but Hosea […]

Finding Less Fear

Finding Less Fear

I finished my scrapbook of our journey with Dominic. I started it not long after his death, it became a therapeutic project for me. Putting together his photos with our story…his story…well, His story – helped me make sense of it all, and has helped me heal. I finished everything except the pages on his […]

The Secret to Not Being Anxious

The Secret to Not Being Anxious

It’s a verse most of us Christians know well. Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” It’s one I read often, […]
