How I’m getting through

I made a mistake yesterday. I was in the grocery store, and I turned my cart the wrong way down one of the aisles that have now been designated THIS WAY and DO NOT ENTER to keep us safe as we procure food in quarantine. A woman blocked me with her cart and yelled at […]

Update & An Idea

Happy day after Easter! It’s snowing here, which tells you why Jesus conquered death in the warmth of Jerusalem and not the nutso weather of Massachusetts. I heard from a friend recently. She noticed that I’d stopped blogging, and wondered if that meant things were a bit, well…unbloggable. If I’d gone offline because life had […]

My Epitaph, from an 8 year old

  An 8 year old friend at our church gave this mug to me last night at Life Group. Isn’t it adorable? Since then, I keep thinking, “If that’s what it says on my tombstone someday, I’ll have done alright…” Until recently, I have given no thought whatsoever to what I would want carved in […]

The Rest of Yesterday’s Story

Yesterday I had a bit of a rant. I wasn’t sure whether or not to post it. It had the potential to come across as full-on ungratefulness for all I have, and I am astoundingly blessed. It hasn’t been that long since I felt astoundingly NOT blessed (to the point where Steve and I actually […]

Big Hopeful Thoughts From Our Trip to Hawaii!

I am way behind where I thought I’d be in sharing with you about our trip to Hawaii! We’ve been home for a week now, and each day I sort of wander around and do what needs to be done, but allthewhile I’m lost in kind of a reverie, thinking about God. Okay, that sounds […]

Wherever we go, that’s where the party is

Thank you all so much for sharing in my sorrow as I said goodbye to THAT DOG. It has been harder than I expected. Your words and comments (and voicemails and texts) helped more than I can describe. Thank you. Okay, on to today! Normally, I’d post my notes from the weekend sermon. And I […]

It’s A Start

Steve and I are starting a faith community here in our living room. ¬†We’ll meet for the first time on Sunday, December 29th, at 10:00am. There will be prayer, a sermon, and some time to quiet the chaos of life and listen in to what God might be saying to each of us. Steve and […]

I love learning things about people that just don’t come up in everyday conversation – pet peeves, secret talents, childhood memories […]
