Dying Breath { A Journey Through the Season of Lent }

I semi-slept in the recliner near my mom's bed--not knowing it would be her last night on planet earth.   When my children were little, I often teased that a mama sleeps with one eye open ...one eye on the baby and one eye on sleep.

Hope for the Broken

I've come to realize I don't really like broken things.  I have a strong urge to fix them ...immediately!    If something was made to work a certain way, then work a certain way it should.  Anything less is ...well, irritating.  Somewhere in the idealistic-perfect-wanna-be-world of my mind, things are made to continue doing what they… Continue reading Hope for the Broken
