I’d Rather Have Jesus

I’d Rather Have Jesus

In Psalm 5 we read that God hears our voice. And so, I lay my requests before him. Requests that are preluded with thanksgiving for provision and for sacrifices made. For children kept safe, needs fulfilled, wants provided. Requests preluded with worship to a mighty God I cannot see. A mighty God I cannot fathom. […]

Toss the Trash

It seems like I have come through something that was darker than I had even believed it to be. Something so real that all too often this past year, it was determined to steal, kill, and destroy. And it got close to accomplishing its purpose.

But it didn’t. Click on title to read more…

Listening and Staying

Listening and Staying

Something inside compelled me to stay. Was it really necessary to plant the smaller plants for this old woman? After all, she loved gardening just as much as I did and would love to be down there on her knees with me, bent over to face the dirt and let the earth crumble within her […]

What’s Holding You Back?

What’s Holding You Back?

The other day I visited a local community garden near my home. It’s a fairly large lot and so affords housing for several local sparrows, orioles, finches and more between the trees and manmade birdhouses. Amongst the flowers, newly sprouted vegetables, the birds and their new babies, I was in seventh heaven. And then I […]
