I stood at my kitchen window watching the baby magpie. It intrigued me. Each morning, as the sun called forth the day, I watched the mother and baby fly down from the tree to the yard below. At first, the baby stayed in the same place, not moving around, just watching its mother. The mother […]Read More
Just a little scripture reflection for you… My kids love writing birthday wish lists. They make a list of all the things they want, their greatest desires and the things that would bring them the most joy. Can I tell you a secret…I’m actually thankful for that because it makes it super easy to know […]Read More
I had hurt my friend. We were supposed to meet for coffee, but I had completely forgotten and left her there waiting and alone. When I called her later that night, still unaware of my mistake, I knew something wasn’t right between us. She was keeping the conversation short and simple. When I asked if […]Read More
“Where your eyes go, there your mind will follow.” Do you agree? Its quite natural when you think about it; you have to open your eyes to see where you’re going and what you’re doing. We use our eyes to focus on the things we want to pay attention to, learn from, think about, and […]Read More

The story of the prodigal son, from Luke 15, has been on my heart lately; not because I have a child who has run away, but simply because I have a child who is growing up. I know that sounds so silly, almost insignificant, because that’s what children do — they grow up. In fact, […]Read More
I read an Instagram post today that said, “Do whatever makes you happiest”. My first thought was, well that’s a nice sentiment, but then I thought, actually how sad it really is. Are they implying there are levels of happiness, by saying the “happiest”? Are they saying stay away from all things that may be […]Read More
Why are we captivated by sunsets and sunrises? Is it because of the beautiful colors they cast throughout the sky?

How often are we caught in between seasons? A season of the long wait…when we are not sure of the outcome? Perhaps something has happened and caused us to wilt or wither, perhaps even quite unexpectedly…and perhaps we dont even know how we will survive this.
I have found there is only one thing we can do when we are faced with a long wait…and that is HOPE.
