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

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

In his book, The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis describes the character Screwtape, a senior demon writing to his nephew and understudy, Wormwood, to speak of humanity’s fear of the ordinary, the routine, the “Same Old Thing.” He instructs Wormwood in this way:...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. What God gives us is not necessarily ‘ours’ but only ours to offer back to Him, ours to relinquish, ours to lose, ours to let go of…”—Elisabeth Elliott...Keep Reading

“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.” Isaiah 9:2 I remember the first Christmas that I began to become acutely aware of the darkness of our world. Everything outside bustled on as usual. The neighbors had all decorated their homes beautifully. The radio played all the old Christmas tunes (even that one Paul McCartney song that drives me a bit crazy). All the usual sights and smells were there, but this year was different....Keep Reading

Exceptional in the Ordinary - November 2018

Susannah Wesley once said, “I am content to fill a little space, if God be glorified.” Admittedly, I find this concept a tough pill to swallow at times. Being a lover of adventure stories ever since I was a little girl, I am always drawn to the epic drama, the exciting climax, the raging battle where the hero strides onto the scene in the nick of time and saves the day....Keep Reading

Elisabeth Elliott once said, “What God gives in answer to our prayers will always be the thing we most urgently need, and it will always be sufficient.” I have this quote printed on a card and stuck to my bathroom mirror where I look at it everyday. I realize that I am still quite young (despite what my children might think), but I do know what it is to cry out to the Lord in prayer. Like countless others, I have spent sleepless hours pacing the floor or on my knees in agonizing prayer. I know what it is to sit in a doctor’s office and be told there is no longer anything they can do to save the one you love from the cancer that has invaded their body. I know what it is to pray for relief, for answers, for direction, for…something…and yet be met with silence....Keep Reading
