Tiny Practice: Embrace the Uncertainty with Grace

In the past year, we have experienced lots of uncertainty. But throughout our lives, uncertainty will be alongside our journeys. Maybe we should take a different approach… “Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.” — Bob Goff Shared by Marcie Doll

Growing in Faith

Do not react but act. Look to the Lord with faith and hope. Trust and obey. Seek his words: “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” *   Keep going crooked until you can go straight.  Continue reading “Growing in Faith”

A Prayer Board

My current prayer board in my home office is crowded, jammed, overflowing, packed, and crammed, but it is not filled.  Each week, I update the board and use it in my morning prayers.  Collectively praying for those who need our prayers each day matters.  And it helps me to have a visual prayer list.  WhoContinue reading “A Prayer Board”

Footprints…

I’ve left footprints upon grains of sand. I’ve left footprints in the dirt. I’ve left my footprints on a wooded path. They became a trail where I could leave my hurt.   I’ve left wet footprints on the sidewalk. I’ve left crunchy footprints in the snow. I’ve scattered leaves with shuffled footprints, And each printContinue reading “Footprints…”

Consider the Lilies

Through heavy curtains Morning steals in– Gray, sullen, frowning, As though carrying a grudge Against yesterday’s tumultuous birth That scattered its gold everywhere, Bursting through windows, Streaking through the willows, Blushing the face of the pond, Then rousing soft twitterings Tucked under feathered wing. But this day arrives, perfunctory, On schedule since its Genesis. DutyContinue reading “Consider the Lilies”

A Blessed Easter!

The sun always rises.  Slowly.  Quietly. Sometimes amidst rain.  Sometimes amidst wind.  Sometimes covered by clouds. But slowly, quietly, the sun always rises and shatters the darkness. God always comes to us.  Sometimes quietly.  Other times through a cacophony of unexpected events and “life turned upside down” experiences that stop us in our tracks.  ButContinue reading “A Blessed Easter!”

From the Cocoon

Kintsugi:  “The art of precious scars” Kin = Golden Tsugi = Joinery   I was doubly blest recently not only to have attended the Marble Women’s Retreat, but also to have shared that powerful weekend with my mother.   She happens to be a talented quilter with a vision for truth.  At the retreat, I hadContinue reading “From the Cocoon”

At the Place where the Land Ends…

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV)   I came upon this sundial while visiting St Michael’s Mount in the Cornwall region of the UK on a stellar day last September.  IContinue reading “At the Place where the Land Ends…”

Let it Spill?

Spilling – The act of causing (or allowing) something (or someone))  to fall unintentionally. The results: Puddles, splatter, poisoning, confession, betrayal, guilt, release, relief, in confidence, in pain, playful, first link in a chain of events.            Maybe, don’t do it.

Hold On

Between rooms at the Melk Abbey in Austria, I came across this staircase, called the Baroque Staircase.  The staircase winds around and it looks like it will never end.  Stone stairs that circled an opening in the middle that to me represented infinity.  There is intricate iron work and friezes on the wall that haveContinue reading “Hold On”
