I’ve started writing this more times that I can remember. I’d begin, write, re-write…and then feel this overwhelming sense of inadequacy in retelling the incredible workings of our God…then stop. But I know a few things so deeply inside of me. I know that our stories must be told. Because here’s the thing. When our […]

I love the space between the end of a year and the beginning of the next. It’s like this tiny breath of remembering what was and anticipating what will be.

The light that shimmered in air held the same kind of magic as in the eyes of the three sisters. Some kind of childhood wonder. Where holding hands ushered the sweetest smiles and the arms of parents satisfied every need. Where berries and off beaten paths brought adventure and curiosity and let the imagination run […]

The first signs of winter hung in the air as the last signs of fall clung to the trees. Faded colors of nutmeg and bronze and chestnut. The sun had pulled the thick gray blanket around itself hiding rays of light. Below it a family played. And swung. And laughed. They tickled and talked. Wrapped […]
