Tree Rings

If you can’t tell, I have been struggling to write lately. I am disappointed with how few blogs I have finished. I have a hard time not focusing on the negative and striving to fix myself. I have come to realize that when I am weak, I do not like to show it. Who does?…

You Don’t Give Your Heart In Pieces

God is a personal being. He is as close and loving as we allow Him. I haven’t been writing as much lately, as it is one of those seasons where I am walking a little bit in the dark, (no not just because I live in Alaska). The Lord has been teaching me… Even if…

The People In My Boat

As we were going along the trail on our cross country skis, I looked at my husband and threw my hands up in the air. “Are we every going to get unstuck? I feel like my life is just STUCK in one place.” (No, I was not physically stuck with my skis). I proceeded to…

Sunday Reading

I have been wrestling with what to write on with all of what the Lord is doing in my life. Then I realised I should just let the Author of All say it best. Enjoy. For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but…

Prayer That Binds and Loose.

“And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.” 1 Corinthians 2:12 I woke up with that verse on repeat in my head. A thought followed- better get in my prayer time today. (I am currently doing a 21 day prayer challenge…

Are we thankful yet?

Today I went home sick from work. Dragging in the door I was clouded by feeling almost half alive. The sensation of being able to think but only through some thick fog and congestion was overwhelming. WOE ME was alive and happening. The night before I had been disappointed with experiences and feeling left out…

A Time to Dream Again

What dreams have you seen come to fruition so far in your life? I sunk in my seat getting asked this question. Had any dreams come true? Did I even feel like I should dream? Honestly, I was struck by disappointment and shame, but what was making me feel this way? “And do not be conformed…

The Summer in the Bathroom Stall

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him. The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks…

Abba knows best

Growing up my dad often would call someone a Zippy-pin-day-ho. Not sure how you would even spell it. Who knows if it is even a real word, but I definitely grabbed onto the same mentality. Basically it means incompetent or idiot. As I have been trying to work through my flaws- I am realizing I…

The context of me.

When I read the Bible, it makes so much more sense with context and the backstory of the person who is writing the particular book. So, to give my readers context for things I will write-why not make the second blog post about who I am so there is some understanding of my perspective. In…

Words shape us.

Life often finds us wondering if we will ever experience the great thrills and adventures we see around us. As a society we have pretty much made Entertainment our reality- because fantasy seems so amazing. We all do it- whether it is superhero powers we are in awe of or Hallmark movies with the perfect…
