knocking on our doors…

Sometimes the gift of amazing opportunity comes knocking on our doors in ways we’d never choose. Am thinking this might just be one of those times. Please listen to the little discussion by Mike Smith. Full of such good reminders for what we’re facing these days.  I tried, but can’t share it on WordPress for some reason, but  if you search Vimeo for Mike Smith’s “Rooted in Love” , you’ll find it. ❤ #pray     #speak      #lovewell  #read Read more

…a few thoughts on being careful…

On my way to work, I always drive by a little abandoned home. The other day, I smiled as I noticed a sweet little clump of daffodils in the middle of the tall grass. It stood out and reminded me, that in the midst of all the craziness going on now in our world with shut downs and health and financial crises, well, there was still new life, still beauty, still some normal things that weren’t being stopped or shutRead more

remembering to think

It’s important to think about what we’re thinking about. It’s beneficial to pay attention to what we’re paying attention to. So often we will find that we see what we seek.

a little birdseed

I made myself slow down.  I made eye contact with the people around me, said hi to the clerk who then said, “Welcome to Dollar General…”  A sweet older man said, “Hi”,  then acted surprised and said, “Now aren’t you pretty.”   It was then my turn toRead more

Silent Sunday

Sorry…i guess it’s not really a “silent” Sunday post after all. I just had to share this song. Sometimes He comes in a whisper…and sometimes He’s been there all along and all we have to do is open our eyes to see(k).  ❤   “When my faith is prone to fear, remind me…”  Read more

spilled milk

So it was 7:40 in the morning and students were filing into the school after eating breakfast in the cafeteria. In peeks a little girl with a sad look on her face who says, “Do you know where Mrs. C is?” I said I didn’t but I could help her find her. (She was looking for the school social worker for help with getting some clean clothes). “I spilled milk all over me,” she says. I said, “I can seeRead more
