He Reminds Me
Sometimes, when you least expect it, but when you most need it, God will do something absolutely amazing in your life- just to remind you how much He loves you.
The Intruder The first indication that an intruder was in the house was the sensation of someone tapping my feet in this weird irregular pattern. It was the wee hours of the morning- around 4:15, which is the time my weekday alarm goes off. But this was Saturday, and I was tired and had no…
Never Waste A Sunrise
One morning on my way to work, I was stunned by a beautiful sunrise. The Eastern sky was painted with the most glorious colors- beyond description really. When I turned onto one stretch of the highway, the view was almost surreal- the sky all in pinks, corals, golds, and lavender, the shadows of trees against that…
The Secret Place of the Most High
Obviously, it has been longer than two weeks since my accident, which occurred on September 7. This is the first blog I wrote about my experience, and at first, I kept it in my do-over folder because it’s a little more detailed about what I actually experienced.

What’s Your Expiration Date?
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9 I am a stickler for expiration dates. Obsessively so. If a product has a date on it, I don’t try…
What I Can Live Without
Every now and then I take an inventory of the things that pile up in my apartment. My suite of rooms is pretty tiny, so there isn’t a lot of space for much. Living out here on the back of the “Big House” has been an exercise in letting go. It’s amazing the stuff that…
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:18) I have terrible teeth. Guess I was born with them (ha!). I’ve had my share of fillings, root…
