OUT OF THE CHAOS 01.06.2022

Don’t make assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can transform your life. Isn’t it so easy to assume we know what someone else is thinking or why …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 01.03.2022

Monday officially kicks off 2022 for me. The first two days of 2021 were spent celebrating Jesus’ birth, our family and welcoming the new year. The time was chaotic, funny, affirming and filled with food fit for a king. At one point in the preparation process, my daughter and I looked at each other and …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 12.28.2021

Liminal space. The time between what was and what will be. It is a place of transition, a season of waiting, of not knowing. It can be illustrated by moving from one room to another. There is a moment when I am in neither room but rather in the doorway. The space between one room …

8And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable.

When I was in junior high, I ran track. Sprints were my specialty and at the time I was pretty fast. For my school, anyway. I broke the records in both the 50 yard dash and the 100 yard dash. It was fun to be really good at something. Junior high was the end of …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 11.09.2021

Intention. Intentional. Intentional living. Living on purpose. I meant to do it. “I meant to do it!” said no child ever when confronted by his mother with an infraction. At least he won’t admit to doing it on purpose. Yet, our actions and the course of our life do come from intentional decisions. It might …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 11.08.2021

Last week I shared beauty tips. Getting rid of things that don’t serve me is a best practice to a beautiful life. As it goes, I had the opportunity to put into practice the beauty tips I shared. It’s not easy and changes aren’t instantaneous, but beauty isn’t quick and easy either. This day, I …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 11.04.2021

My oldest daughter has developed a keen interest in proper skin care. Now, I know there are those who splash water on the face a couple times a day and call it good. Depending on what a person wants, that might be the answer. I wanted more so I tapped my daughter on the shoulder …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 11.03.2021

On several occasions recently I experienced some trouble with my eyes. It occurred as I prepared to go out for the day. I’m not sure what but something foreign got into my eye causing it to burn, itch and water uncontrollably. It didn’t last long, I suppose because the watering of my eye washed out …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 10.25.2021

11But watch out, you who live in your own light and warm yourselves by your own fires. This is the reward you will receive from me: You will soon fall down in great torment. Isaiah 50:11 18When people commend themselves, it doesn’t count for much. The important thing is for the Lord to commend them. …
