Made for Another World - November 2019

Posted onNovember 4, 2019 | by: Corrie Mooneyham | 0 comments

As I write this, my family and I are on “holiday” at one of our favorite places in all the world…Oak Island, North Carolina. We love this place not so much for what it is, but rather for the memories it holds for us. My husband came here as a boy with his family. Many years later, he brought along a young girl who was absolutely smitten with him and would later become his wife. In turn, we have brought our own little ones over the years…visiting all our familiar spots, taking all the same pictures, and watching time do its bittersweet work as our children grow and change. ...Keep Reading

Noise and Mess - September 2019

All summer long I have been the spectator to a nest full of baby swallows. As they emerged from their eggs with feathers matted down, they were completely helpless and fragile. They had nothing to offer the world by way of contribution except for noise and endless mess. ...Keep Reading

Joy Comes With the Morning

The events of that April morning are forever etched in my memory. It was 6:30 a.m. when my phone rang. At this point in our lives just the sound of the phone ringing was enough to take my breath away. My husband placed his hand on mine as if to steady me for whatever may come next. “Hello?” “Hey, Sis, it’s me,” my brother’s tired voice met my ear. “Her breathing’s changed. If you want to be here, you better come on. I don’t think we have much time.”...Keep Reading

In Need of a Savior February 2019

I remember that morning well. I was sitting at my usual table, waiting for my shift to start at the small coffee shop where I was employed, when she walked in. To say that she was a difficult customer was an understatement to those of us responsible for serving her. My fellow employees and I had our own version of “drawing straws” to see who would have the unfortunate task of taking her order. I remember thinking, “Why does she even come here? She seems to hate everything.”...Keep Reading

Is It Enough? August 2019

“If we hold tightly to anything given to us, unwilling to allow it to be used as the Giver means it to be used, we stunt the growth of the soul.
