A Bump in the Road {Frustrations in the Middle}

I think I hit a bump in the road this week. The journey continues.  The road seems long.  The end is ...well, I'm not sure!  Heaven--sure; but earth ...that's another story.  Earth bound trains leave me in frustrated stations.  Destinations unknown. It seems people continue to be mean and ornery and don't do what I… Continue reading A Bump in the Road {Frustrations in the Middle}

Life Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Grief and loss can gush like water and run for days, weeks, even years --finding routes into the tiniest cracks and crevices of our innermost being.  Sometimes the seed of suffering and loss gets lodged between a rock and a hard place and forces it to crack open until the cracking and the spilling make you… Continue reading Life Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Stomping it out with Jesus

Where Do I Start? {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

The conversation from yesterday's post continued today.  A friend and I talked about the injustice we see in our country ...the oppression of the poor ...the political climate ...the documentary, 13th...strong opinions...bitter ranting...lack of diversity in many churches. The issues  are  so widespread and  so overwhelming that inevitably the question has to surface -- "Where do… Continue reading Where Do I Start? {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

The End of the World …and More

A theme captivating many movie-watchers over the years --The End of the World Is Coming !  My husband and I found ourselves eating popcorn to such a movie last week and if nothing else,  it brought up some thought-provoking  conversation. The radio announcer broke through all regularly scheduled programming to announce that all hope for help was… Continue reading The End of the World …and More
