All things. Period.

Life can be so hard. I just heard of a new mother with cancer of the uterus, and a friend losing their home, and for me…well a tidal wave of pain from a marriage that ended 21 years ago….the wave crashing unexpectedly on me just weeks out from my first born’s...

What tent are you living in?

Just last night the refresh button of my mind was pushed and some old wounds wreaked havoc with me. Once again I realized in very real terms that I still have MUCH to learn and still have need of MUCH growth. So, it is no surprise to me that this morning as I open up to...

Which pattern are you living by?

This morning I did what I could. (SDWSC) I set my alarm for 3:30 am and left my warm snugly bed to go pick up my 25 yr old son, who needed a ride to the airport. I was back home by 5:30 am. Back to sleep by 5:40. At the time he asked me, I wanted to help, but let’s face it,...
