Thankful Thursday

So on this ‘Thankful Thursday’ I’m thankful for words. I’m thankful for words spoken that bring clarity. It’s amazing the power of words to clear the air and wash away misunderstandings when all parties have taken a deep breath before hand. Sometimes, that’s a crucial piece (for peace)—this breathing in and breathing out. Somehow, deep breaths seem to open up the ability to listen and hear a bit more.  And I’m thinking that good conversation is just that…it’s a breathingRead more

note to self…

Note to Self:  Some things—beautiful, unexpected, glorious things–– ONLY grow in the desert. Like Cacti. And blue desert flowers. And ‘resurrection plants’. Maybe the periods of drought coupled with lots of Light can cultivate unique and amazing things that are  indigenous to places you’d least expect…and not just in plants mind you <3.  I love that God has variety beyond compare and that He can use anything, anyone, any place to make things grow out of the dust. Am thinking that’sRead more

Thankful Thursday

These are just a few images from this week.  They capture  moments in time in the span of a few days. As I looked at them I kept thinking of how amazing it is all that is packed in a moment, a day, a week, …a lifetime. I mean, when you think about it, it’s amazing what even one day can hold. My day began with some good books, coffee and this… It’s been a full week. I’ve been onRead more

However, if we realize that moment-by-moment obedience is the goal, then each moment as it comes is precious.” ~ Oswald Chambers Gonna repeat that one line again and again to myself…“if we realize that moment-by-moment obedience is the goal, then each moment asRead more

a few thoughts on hornets…

Have  you ever heard that phrase “mad as a hornet”?  It makes me picture some crazed hornet flying sporadically in random patterns at high speeds, and everyone else running to steer clear of it’s undetermined and unpredictable path. Well, I was thinking about that phrase the other morning. Why?  Because I was.  “Mad as a hornet”, that is. Yes. Affirmative with no exaggeration. I promise I wasn’t ‘flying sporadically in random patterns at high speeds …, but I did noteRead more
