Narrative Re-Writer

Pondering The Book of Ruth: The Book of Ruth offers hope to anyone who has ever felt like they don’t fit in. The odds were stacked against Ruth in the culture she lived in BUT GOD chose the least likely as a link in the lineage of Christ. The parts of our story that we think disqualify us may be […]

(Week 16) Trying To Capture the Greatness of God is like trying to Lasso the Moon

Recently, a sweet young “whippersnapper” who is a student at The Atlanta Dreamcenter School of Ministry asked me to paint her a painting for her dorm room.  One of the ironic things about that request is that she is one of the best artists I know. But this is a different story. She truly is one of my heroes of faith and […]

Calling all podcasters and podcast listeners: Let’s start a conversation, Let our Blog-Pod TRIBE begin!  #BlogPod I am a podcast junkie.

(Week 13) “Whispers and Waves”

“He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing. He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight. He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it. He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between […]

(Week 7) Happy Valentine’s Day to Those Who Will One Day Hold My Children’s Hearts Forever!

Since my blog is an online journal of sorts, I thought it would be a great idea to log this letter for my future daughters-in-law and son-in-law.  Whoever these special people are, they are greatly loved; they have a future home to call theirs and another set of parents who love them unconditionally! Dear future wives of my boys and […]

(Week 6) “Joshua Tree”

So why the Joshua Tree? When I hear something twice in a short amount of time that is unusual to me, I have found it is usually God saying, “Lean in and listen.”  He wants to talk; it is often a bit like a parable and it is always a treasure hunt. Sitting at my daughter’s basketball game, a friend […]

(Week 5) “Owl” Always Love You!: Sharing Some Momma Wisdom for My Daughter’s 17th Bday

Always Remember “HOO” you are and “HOO’s” you are! I picked up that wise momma saying from Lysa Terkeurst years ago at a “She Speaks” conference.  Of course, she spelled it correctly but I wanted to capitalize on the painting I did for Virginia for her b-day present. (Painting #5 for 2016 to accompany the weekly post, in accordance with […]
