Following A Pattern?

Do you sew? I would love to say that I do, but truth be told, I’ve only made one outfit . Ever. My first experience with patterns and fabric was in a 4-H sewing club. We called ourselves The Darkroom Darners. Interesting name, isn’t it? I don’t believe darners do their best work in the dark, but when… Read More Following A Pattern?

Can This Be Spring?

Does this look like spring to you? Emerald leaves swishing to and fro, dancing on soft breezes against a clear blue backdrop. Buzzing bees on bright yellow blooms, soaking in sunlit warmth. Wait a minute, the caption doesn’t exactly fit, does it? Try this one: Snowy-white, bare-treed, chill–to-the-bone freezing, with a side order of wind-chill.… Read More Can This Be Spring?

When I was a little girl, my favorite super-hero power was invisibility. I thought it both adventurous and advantageous to wander around totally undetected, spying on friends, and listening in on conversations. Don’t judge, forgive me I was ten.  Besides the obvious advantages, my favorite benefit of being invisible was protection. I could step out… Read More EMERGE~From Invisible to Unstoppable

Lord, Am I Getting Any of This Right?

Have you ever questioned whether you’re getting it right, doing what God is calling you to do?  I have;  especially when I find myself playing the comparison game, I mean really, Esther?  Ruth?  Deborah? Deborah had it going on, didn’t she? Wife, prophetess, warrior, judge.  I’m exhausted just thinking about what her daily “to do”… Read More Lord, Am I Getting Any of This Right?
