When Someone Joins this Journey

A friend sent me a copy of a blog yesterday.  It was a blog sharing the loss of another Christian marriage. I’d already read it, but I opened it…just to glance at it again.  As if to remind myself what had just happened to this lovely Christian woman.  And fresh heartache came to me…not just… Continue reading When Someone Joins this Journey

Grab the Robe with Me

There was this song at my old church …it was a solo I sang on worship team sometimes. It was called “I See the Lord” and I loved it. It was based on Isaiah 6:1 …I saw the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the… Continue reading Grab the Robe with Me

But I’ve stepped away from that place many times carrying what I should have laid at His feet.… Continue reading Me and My Stuff at His Feet

My Peace Symbol

Peace. That peace symbol is all over the place.  I see it on everything.  It’s difficult to avoid sometimes.  I don’t particularly care for it to be honest.  It doesn’t really speak peace to me. It reminds me more of a time when there wasn’t peace…when people stood less for true peace and more for… Continue reading My Peace Symbol
