Let The Season Set You Free

There was a season when I believe God told me not to dream. It wasn’t a short season. It was about seven years.  Would God tell us not to dream?   In His generosity, I had to stop dreaming because I was in an endless cycle of doing. The end of what God said went like...

Don’t Be A Thermometer

With all of the chaos surrounding the rising covid numbers in our area this week, I wonder if this might help. A gal in our prayer group shared this illustration and it brought so much clarity. She said, “We weren’t made to be thermometers. Thermometers take the...

Word of the Year- Is it worth it?

If I'm honest, when people start asking me what my word of the year is, it makes my eyes do this really weird squinty thing they do when I'm trying to blink away unwanted pressure. Is it worth it?  I want to tell you no! Skip the pressure, stay in bed and sleep to a...

As the air turns and it becomes cool, I notice the burning bushes around our home are starting to turn red. Their leaves begin to change one by one, some more quickly than others...but little by little, the season is changing them.   As the air feels cool on my skin...

God I Believe You

A couple of years ago Teddy walked into our room fighting back sobs. He was trying to make it through the night in underwear and 90% of the time he was making it...but not that night. Mad, the tears ran down his cheeks and he audibly wailed as I walked him down the...
