Walking Backward

“History doesn’t repeat itself but sometimes it rhymes.” – Mark Twain Sometimes I feel nostalgic. I look at old photos. I watch old reruns. I collect treasures and leave it out to remind me of people and places I once knew, I revisit places in my mind or in reality. I call friends to remember…

God is like a Mom

The Bible is clear on the idea that we understand God better through relationships and comparisons to those people we know. We know what God is like and what He is not like as we interact with the world around us. Jesus told parables of familiar things to help us understand God’s character. By example,…

He is Here

Have you ever taken a sentence and repeated it over and over emphasizing a different word each time? It is hard to explain how just an emphasis can make a difference – they are the same words after all – but it does change meaning. HE is here- God is the He to whom I…

Found Things

Today I am celebrating found things. There are so many things I have looked for and found. Yesterday I was driving to Huntington Beach after church and Clayton called to tell me about Amanda’s missing bag. We had all recently gotten air tags so now was the time to see if they worked!

Miracles

Once upon a time, last Sunday, April 10th shortly after 9pm to be more accurate, I was driving home to Downey after spending the afternoon with my parents. I was driving along with the flow of traffic on the North 605, listening to a Lucille Ball podcast, when all of a sudden I heard a…

My Friend

Dear Lauren, I don’t remember when we first met. I don’t remember much about how we even became friends, but I am sure it was our boys’ faults. (Thank you to Skyler and Clayton). None of that really matters anyway because you have become one of my best friends and have even morphed into being…

Sabbath Rest is spelled PLAY

Sunday, April 10th, I had the privilege to teach in the Middle School ministry. They just started a series on spiritual disciplines and I taught about the first discipline ever recorded – Genesis 2 – Sabbath rest! I will include my slides here and a brief review. So that I would be sure to teach…

Happy 7th Anniversary

They say that this anniversary is itchy! I am not sure why people seem to think this is the time couples re-evaluate their relationship when statistics show it happens much earlier in the marriage. I am not sure it is a real thing anyway but I would say that every anniversary is an opportunity to…

Too Good to be True

Is it true that I am God’s favorite? Does He mean it when He says He loves me enough to die for me? Does God actually have my best interest at heart? Really?! If I look at scripture, I can be convinced, most of the time, that every time God interacts with humankind He is…

What I remember

There are many lives I remember: People who have walked through my life leaving footprints on my heart; voices that whisper kind words that I can still faintly hear; touches through deeds and presence that have given my life purpose and changed its shape. Some I remember by name and some I cannot. Last night…
