Divinely Upheld

Happy 2021 friends near and far! It's been awhile since I've been here, work and life the past few months have been quite something! One of my desires for January was to get re-engaged on here, and there's certainly no shortage of material to talk about. The new year seems to be bringing a touch… Continue reading Divinely Upheld

Wilderness Curriculum

Well, we have collectively flipped our calendars from March to April. I for one, was happy to toss old March into the trash can and be moving on to a new month, one that traditionally brings hope, renewal and happy memories.

I'm a seasonal girl, I love the flow of one season to the next, and I get as excited for fall as I do… Continue reading Searching For Spring – And Finding It

The Real Cause of the Storm

Watching the opinions and fingers come out this week has been a bit much for me. I can't help but think most of it is well-intentioned people spinning their wheels. Questions ranging from "why would a good God allow this" to "what laws will prevent this" are bombarding us all. I have to humbly submit… Continue reading The Real Cause of the Storm

Five Smooth Stones

Then Saul dressed David in his own tunic. He put a coat of armor on him and a bronze helmet on his head. David fastened on his sword over the tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them. “I cannot go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used… Continue reading Five Smooth Stones
