Point Me Home

All this brick and concrete  building towers over building city lights glare and my soul says Point me home. To that big, wide porch warm lights in sleepy little cypress wood house at the end of the lane To my daughter’s smile,  her big blue eyes and bedtime snuggles in our space, on our time … Continue reading »

Missing The Forest

I accidentally snapped this shot of my house as I was documenting the ant revolution in my mailbox yesterday. That’s right. Hundreds of ants had a rager in my mailbox. On my mail. Hundreds. Of ants. I went inside and fretted over the ants. Then I fretted over the wasp nests all over my house. … Continue reading »

Coming Out of Hiding

My heart has been slowly petrifying, inch by rocky inch, for quite some time now. At first, it was just numb. Then, right as it started to soften and feel again, chaos entered our lives with an untamed fury. I tried to keep up with the chaos as best as I could, but it was … Continue reading »

I don’t weep for the lost relationship anymore. I weep for the loss of wholeness. For this new brokenness in me that feels like it will never again be mended.

I thought my dreams had come true. I thought I had finally found it.

That’s what I … Continue reading »

When Your Lazarus Won’t Come Forth

When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. “Where have you laid him?” he asked. “Come and see, Lord,” they replied. Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!” John 11:33-36 I spent several months in … Continue reading »

Questions From an Accused Woman

What did you write on the ground that day? Were you stopping to pray, to wait for instruction from your Father before answering the question-trap laid for you? Is that how it worked when you were here? Did you silently pray for guidance the way that we do when we need to know His will? … Continue reading »

When the Path is Daunting

It was a difficult time. I was young, and everything I’d grown up believing was being passed through a giant sifter – wheat landing on this side, chaff landing on that…only the wheat and the chaff, they were parts of my own heart. So much insecurity, so much fear, so much learning what it meant … Continue reading »
