Singing In The Rain

Singing In The Rain

Dear Friends,  This coming Wednesday Jim and I lead a pilgrimage to Ireland and Iona, retracing the steps of Columba who lived in the 500’s. I have finally given in and joined the world of Instagram and hope to post there, so if you’re an Insta-grammer that’s where you may follow along. I’d love to […]

Yes Fear

Yes Fear

I know it is ‘No’. No Fear. The slogan is plastered everywhere, particularly on the rear window of large pickup trucks. It makes me wonder why the drivers of said trucks need a reminder and what fear it is they are driving against, but that’s another blog for another day. Those who have heard my […]

When I Am Me

When I Am Me

  Perhaps the only thing better than heading out is heading home. Born an adventurer, heading out is in my veins. Born to be a mom, heading home is a dream. One that sometimes comes true. Those who know a bit of my story know I began to love Ireland, the UK and Europe early […]

When Everything Goes Right

When Everything Goes Right

  It was one of those dreams that was so intense I needed it to end. Sometimes you can wake yourself up from a dream and sometimes you can’t. I was able to pull out of this one but not soon enough! In this dream I was on trial and it wasn’t pretty. The sense […]

Measuring Up

Measuring Up

I won! The competition was intense and having traveled a long way, I knew focus and concentration were required despite my travel fatigue. Looking around the room I took quick stock of those who had gathered and realized the odds were stacked against me as I was one of the oldest in the room This […]

Finding Home

Finding Home

Ahh, now THIS I know. The maple on main street that always shows off its fiery red brilliance in October. The stone house-turned-country store where one can always find a gift that is just right. A hug around a neck I’ve hugged one hundred times in the past and will never grow tired of hugging. […]

Breathe!

Breathe!

‘Catch a wave and you’re sittin’ on top of the world!’ This one line from a Beach Boys song rolled over and over in my mind for weeks on end. It is not a bad tune, all things considered, but weeks on end is a bit much. It had to do with our now living […]

A Matter Of The Heart

A Matter Of The Heart

  Everyone loves a good laugh! The Bible lists Joy as a source of strength, and I, for one, have just had a much needed fire-hose drip line of joy. I say it that way because I was in a setting where many serious and pressing issues were being addressed in prayer and worship: it wasn’t a […]

The Amber Wineskin of Autumn

The Amber Wineskin of Autumn

  Realizing many of my blog followers are from the southern hemisphere and therefore headed into springtime, I can’t help but write about autumn, surrounded as I am by amber aspen leaves. This is my first Colorado autumn. Familiar as I am to the brilliant orange and then red of maples and oaks, to be in […]

How Do I Love Me?

How Do I Love Me?

Shall we count the ways you and I Love Ourselves To Life? This love thing matters. It matters because we are made in the image of a God who IS love. He isn’t just named love or considered love or has this nice reputation of being the most loving guy in the universe. His very […]
