52 Weeks of Stillness

I sit here on this very first day of a brand new year, sipping my coffee in a favorite cup (they're all my favorites) and reflecting on all that the recent years have brought. I wonder with some excitement--and I confess a little bit of fear--what will this new year bring? I try to effectively… Continue reading 52 Weeks of Stillness

A Valentine for You

On a day when many will wake up feeling especially loved, when many will wake up feeling especially lonely, and when many will wake up just the same as any other day in February—there is, you might say, a Valentine for everyone. A Rose. A Gift. A Love Letter. A Promise. A Jewel of Great… Continue reading A Valentine for You

What I’m Reading Wednesday – The Quilt

I took a break from informational reading and read this sweet little book, which was recommended by an acquaintance. The Quilt by T. Davis Bunn is an older book (1993) and surprisingly short. I didn't realize how short it was and actually finished it in about an hour and a half! The story centers around an… Continue reading What I’m Reading Wednesday – The Quilt

“Happy is he…”

Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever: Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry... The Lord preserveth the strangers; he… Continue reading “Happy is he…”

Worth Fighting For

Lately, it seems like every person in the world is fighting or arguing or puffing themselves up towards each other—uncannily similar to my neighbor’s roosters that keep wandering into my front yard, bickering and squawking and flapping their wings at each other over bugs and crumbs and territory that isn't even theirs. It’s loud. Unsightly.… Continue reading Worth Fighting For

What I’m Reading Wednesday – Parenting by Paul David Tripp

The book Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family is one of the best books on the subject that I have ever read. In fact, I have to admit I procrastinated a little bit with writing about it, because it was just so good I was afraid I wouldn't do it justice. What this… Continue reading What I’m Reading Wednesday – Parenting by Paul David Tripp

“He Maketh the Storm a Calm”

"They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still." Psalm 107:23,24,29

A Little Clari-Tea

{Forgive the title.} Living on the mission field has a way of simplifying your outlook. You may find that you are thankful for things you used to take for granted, and that most of the things you used to need were never really needs at all. You may hold hands with your children and pray… Continue reading A Little Clari-Tea
