The juicy, yet weighty, part of being delivered

Just before heading out the door for an evening church service, Caleb opens the pantry looking for a quick snack.  Mom!  Why do you have these here? I presume he’s questioning the location of my dumbbells.  Firmly planted in the pantry at eye level.  I’m going to let you in on a little weakness of… Continue reading The juicy, yet weighty, part of being delivered

Sharing Sunday: Intentional Illuminated Living

Complete darkness. Deep in a cave, the tour guide turns off every source of light.  I feel for my husband’s hand and grasp tightly.  Eyes wide open.  Yet nothing is seen. Everything recently familiar covered in a blanket of darkness.  The sure-footed path now hidden.  Uncertain of our step, we stand stone still.  I widen my… Continue reading Sharing Sunday: Intentional Illuminated Living

Sharing Sunday: What kind of tree are you? (hint: check out your fruit)

Our Pastor shared the Truth with us yesterday, as taught by Jesus and recorded in the twelfth chapter of John. I assure you: Unless a grain of  wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains by itself. But if it dies, it produces a large crop. The one who loves his life will lose it,… Continue reading Sharing Sunday: What kind of tree are you? (hint: check out your fruit)

Chip on my shoulder (how much does yours weigh?)

Passing by a church, I notice their sign. A chip on the shoulder is a heavy weight to bear. One small chip.  Setting boldly and brashly. Ever so closely to the ear to whisper its grievances. Nursed and coddled.  With the attention, the chip grows heavier. Easily enraged.  Even if it unseen. The blood boils… Continue reading Chip on my shoulder (how much does yours weigh?)

Temple Ruins (right here in Texas, y’all)

A few weeks ago, Caleb shared a news story over breakfast. Mom, did you know the Houston Astrodome is falling apart? I was unaware of the Astrodome’s demise. The once-great Astrodome, known for years as the Eighth Wonder of the World, was home to the Houston Astros and the Oilers, playoff games at all levels, movie… Continue reading Temple Ruins (right here in Texas, y’all)

Mammon and the evil eye…mwahahaha

Last week, my pastor posted on his blog a reminder to protect our eyes.  The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in… Continue reading Mammon and the evil eye…mwahahaha

My life as a souped-up town car

We were traveling last week when my boys noticed a town car in disguise.  With extra large tires and added bling, it was definitely catching some attention. Mom!  Check this out! A souped-up town car! I caught a quick glimpse.  Not my style. And, I couldn’t help but think of how the town car’s makeover… Continue reading My life as a souped-up town car

Discovering painted skies in a colorless day

Husband’s out of town.  I’m holding down the fort. Camden’s running fever.  Tucking him in to bed, my weary mom cheek to his warm forehead, I pray for his comfort and healing. The setting sun and rolling in of night hasn't dampened Caleb’s lively spirit.  Lego construction is in full force.  Offering enticement to close his eyes, I… Continue reading Discovering painted skies in a colorless day
