The Author of My Story

I love books. I cannot even remember what life was like before I learned to read. I remember when I got my first library card and when my mom signed me up for the Weekly Reader book club. I loved Scholastic book club at school and the chance I would get to run into Walden […]

Resilience

So one more word that keeps bouncing around in my head is resilience. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from trials; it is the response to tragedy and crises that allows one to move on despite the loss or trauma. Being resilient to me means I have the ability to suffer greatly without giving […]

Relevance

Sometimes I struggle with relevance. Being stuck inside, isolated and away from community can do that. For me, not having a career anymore has made that worse.

Since we are at war, I am reminded once again that, in addition to hand washing and human separation, hope […]

Running to Win

Today, I watched my son run a race; actually he and 8 friends ran a marathon (26.2 miles). I am proud of them all for finishing! I personally hate to run. I cannot imagine doing that for 4-6 minutes, let alone 4-6 hours! I often wish I had that kind of drive and commitment, but […]

Upside Down

It is interesting to me how backward, upside down and topsy turvy the Christian faith is. Think about it. Jesus won by losing. He taught that to be great, be a servant; to be first, go last; and to be promoted, humble oneself. It gets even more radical when Jesus says to bless those who […]

The heart of thankfulness is about remembering. So this season for my annual gratitude list, I will share a few things that I never want to forget. 11/1 Ps. 105:5 says to remember the wonderful works God has done. There is no way I could list them all, but today I am grateful for the […]
