GOD MADE ME CHEDDAR; I MADE ME SWISS

  • Like a brick of cheddar cheese, I was made in the solid image of God: destined to be whole; wired to be filled. There was never meant to be any holes...But along the way--like swiss cheese & by my own doing--holes got added to what was meant to be solid. Sometimes, I get discouraged that my life has made me hole-y. Thankfully, I am loved by a God who--when I ask Him to fill the spaces--gloriously descends an extra dose of His…

IF YOU WONDER IF GOD'S HEARING YOU...

Have you wondered if God's hearing you? I've wondered that. But know that your God is NOT the God of delays, pauses, forgetfulness, To-Be-Announced's, To-Be-Determined's & forgetful RSVPs. God is WELL AWARE of my voice, my tears, my cries, my needs, my pleas, my begs, my requests, my burdens...and yours too.  It's not a question of can God hear us; it is a question of am I willing to wait for Him to answer? Here are some encouraging verses…

WHEN YOU LOSE A CHILD

It is every parent's nightmare. Except this time, it wasn't mine, it was my 5 yr old's. His brother & I were in the children's corner at Barnes & Noble, doing homework. Per Andy's request, I let him stay in the toy section, adjacent to us. He knew where we were, we knew where he was.… Continue

ROTARY-PHONE GOD

You know what?? Back in the day, rotary phones didn't have speed-dial or fast connection. No matter what, when making a call, we had to patiently DIAL ten digits, one-by-one & wait for the caller to pick up. As far as expecting immediate answers, rotary phones inadvertently taught us patience. Today, when I'm trying to call God, do you think I'm expecting fast-speed, immediate cell-phone service out of Him? Perhaps God is still taking calls His way...i.e., the rotary way. Maybe what I… Continue

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO SAVE A LIFE?



Throughout my life, there have been people who I love but couldn't save. They are addicted or afflicted beyond what my words could heal or my hugs could set free. Do you know what I'm talking about? Though I profess to have no answers, I can share two truths I've accepted. One,…

DRINKING IN THE DARK WITH THE LIGHT ON





Believe it or not, this title came to me as I was trying to fall asleep last night. It stuck with me all day. Weird. Well, here we are. I still have this title gnawing at me. So bear with me as I prayerfully try to flush it out...

There was a…

BROKEN. AND TELLIN' IT LIKE IT IS.

I gotta be honest with ya, I am a repeat sinning offender. I wake up in the morning & have my quiet time with God. I ask Him to forgive me for the things I know I screwed up & to forgive me for the things I didn't know I did. And then? I go & I screw up again! As long as I have time left on life's watch, I'm gonna screw up, screw up again… Continue

PRUNING MY BOUGANVEILLAS & DJ NOT STICKING AROUND LONG ENOUGH TO HEAR MY TEACHABLE MOMENT



Today, I pruned our bougainvillea bushes. As I did, DJ watched & I could feel his curiosity-temperature rise: "Mom, if you cut the branches, won't you kill the bougainvillea?" AH! A perfect question to a teachable moment. "DJ, when we prune plants, we don't kill…

Out of the Fire Came Me, a Roasted Marshmallow



When we were in Chicago we roasted marshmallows. As I reflected back on that day & on the last 6 months of my life, I couldn't help but draw a parallel. Sometimes, life's like a… Continue
