The New Plan

The New Plan

I'm moving! Although some things don't turn out as expected, my plan for a website can now be detected. Thanks to the pros at Norman Design, Jeff Zmania and Lisa Wenzler, who were all so kind. I'm still settling in and moving my things but now both blogs and my book will all live like [...]

Rise Above

Rise Above

Rise up...Beautiful One. See! The winter is past...the rains are almost over. Buds are appearing, the Season of Song has come. Rise up...my Beautiful One. We've seen the scourging, stripes and spearing. We wait in silence. Blood poured out, sacrifice for sin. Mine. I wait. Head bowed to the east before the Rising Sun, the [...]

Old Van

Old Van

Old white van parked on the roadside, mud speckled in snow. Marble streaks and tire tracks from window frame could be a photograph.

My Sacred Little Moments

The seagrass lays wrapped in dried algae. The logs are unearthed and scattered. The rocks though have remained grounded. I think of the three pigs. The path will need a little work this summer. Sunlight sparkles jewels across the water and for just a moment I feel its warmth before the heavy clouds roll back [...]

True Light

I look at the lights on our Christmas tree and wonder if there was a send-off party before He came here. Were lights strung on the trees there, and ribbons wrapped around gifts for Him in honor of the great Gift He would give to us? I wonder if He met with Moses, sat down with Samuel, discussed [...]

The Place I Love to Go

In the chill of the air I pull my shoulders up and duck my chin under the thickness of the scarf wrapped around my neck. I notice a silver hair--it's my mother's scarf. I also notice my sight has retreated into my thoughts and instead of enjoying beauty on the shore and fresh air, I'm [...]
