hot hot heat

Comments Off on hot hot heat in Monday Meditation

It’s hot. It’s summer so it is supposed to be hot. But still, it’s hot.  And just supposed to get hotter. When I come in from being outside I want a cold glass of water. I want something refreshing. Sometimes life is hot too. Stresses. Fears. Anxieties. Disappointments. Frustrations. All of those and the thousands […]

lying through her teeth

Sometimes I am blindsided as a parent. Things come up that I just don’t see coming. Tonight my oldest lied to me. About brushing her teeth. Maybe it seems silly to be thrown off by something as trivial as that, but I take truth very seriously. In fact, when my husband and I went through pre-marital […]

Filling the Void

Comments Off on Filling the Void in Monday Meditation

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.” Ps. 42.1 I have often prayed that the Lord would make me long for Him, that He would give me an unquenchable thirst that only He could satisfy. Then I would get frustrated, because He didn’t seem to be […]

His Eye Is On…Me

Comments Off on His Eye Is On…Me in Monday Meditation

“I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free, For His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me.” I grew up with this old hymn, His Eye Is On The Sparrow, which was inspired by Matthew 6:26 and 10:29-31. I have fond memories of my mom humming it as she […]

when things get messy

Meal time means she wants to do it herself. She manages fairly well, considering the fact that she’s 19 months old. And if you know anything about the eating habits of a 19 month old you know that managing fairly well means anything other than clean. So it was lunch time. The regular routine. Gave […]
