Saturday Evening Ramblings

We survived five days– in a row– of school, and I feel like we deserve cookies. Unfortunately, if we are going to eat cookies I’m going to have to bake them, and I am happily ensconced in my recliner for the evening, so I guess cookies are out. I started this week with an arthritis […]

Stuff I’m Thinking About

Obedience in one area, and how it relates to my life as a whole. If I’m not following God’s path for me in one area, it can totally derail everything else. I love to read several books at a time, but if I get too many going I start to panic and then all I […]

Of Battle and Comfort and Truth

Some mornings I sit here in front of this screen and I know exactly what I want to write and how I want to write it. The words come pouring out of the tips of my fingers in an almost miraculous way. This is not one of those mornings. Some mornings I know what I […]

Aside from not blogging nearly as often as I used to (thank […]

Faith, Obedience, and the Next Step

This post is totally not going to make any sense. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! I have to start by saying thank you to all of you who read my post yesterday and responded with your encouraging words. It is good to know I’m not the only one who struggles, and that you all […]


As I pad softly down the dark steps in the early morning, a light from outside draws my eye. Too early for sunrise as fall marches crisply toward winter and short days and all our needs felt a little more deeply– what is it out there, lighting up the early morning with its brilliance? And […]
