9If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, 10even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. Psalm 139:9-10 She was a daughter of the King. Her crown was in place, maybe just a bit crooked. The last few months had been tough so …

Pause. Sometimes life pauses. The work on the cabin is paused. Paused for a wedding, for the weekend, for the holiday, for personal interests. It sits and waits — patiently.

As I sat down to write this post, the phrase “the sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning” ran through my mind. Being sure it is a song, I googled the phrase and sure enough, it is! I read the lyrics and quickly realized the song put into words what God has been laying …

Today is the inauguration of the 46th president of the United States. I don’t know where you fall on the political spectrum, if this is a celebration or a time of mourning. There is one thing I am confident about — God is still in heaven and he still rules! This psalm says it well. …
