Lost And Found

Lost And Found

  There is one requirement to being found: someone must be looking. Yes it is true that one can be found unexpectedly or by surprise, though discovery by chance is most common when considering objects: one can find a lost set of keys or find their destination by happening to take the right turn. When […]

At The End Of The Day

At The End Of The Day

  “One must wait till evening to see how lovely the day has been.” It is 6:30 in the morning Pacific Time and I’ve just had an evening moment. Funny, isn’t it, how one innocent little movement can unexpectedly stir one’s soul into awakeness and awareness. This morning it was the pool skimmer that did […]

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 […]

Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Ah, those colorful doors of Ireland! Whether you’ve been to the fair island or not you’ve seen them in photos, door after cheery door painted bright blue, red, yellow or green. On a fine soft day, a day of lashing rain or in the clear, bright sunshine, these doors evoke a smile. Inviting, yes. Whimsical, […]

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 […]

Living On Bread And Water

Living On Bread And Water

  Imagine! Just imagine knowing, a deep-down-inside knowing, that there is enough of what you need, and more. Imagine watching the news and seeing the lack in the life of people and society, be it identity, care, food, belonging, and knowing there is more than enough to meet each need without fear of running short.

Live From Fullness In An Empty World

Live From Fullness In An Empty World

  Suddenly the word ‘Flourishing ‘ is in vogue! Numerous people have declared that 2017 is a year of flourishing and this word is now showing up everywhere. I’m delighted that ‘Poetry From A Flourishing Land’ is declaring a wider truth that is both here now and still coming! Forty years ago Jackson Browne, a […]

Got A Moment?

Got A Moment?

Get one! Just one moment, that’s all it takes. Ok, but how long is a moment? Depends, doesn’t it? When I tell a toddler asking for a snack, ‘just a moment’, it can mean seconds or minutes. (But not longer as a child’s persistence won’t allow for delay!) When said to a border guard as […]

A Chip Off The Old Rock

A Chip Off The Old Rock

How much easier life is, how much less stress we live under, when we know we have a certain shape and form for a reason! There is something in the air right now causing many to wonder where they belong, how God can use them, or even if He can or will. May you Love […]
