A Word for Transition Insecurities

Yesterday my husband and I listened online as our home pastor talked about his future transition into retirement and the new vision God has for him.  In October, he will pass the baton of Senior paster to an associate pastor that he has worked with and mentored for over 10 years. They are both ready for this new season, but […]

Helping Those in Transition

When I was trying to come up with a word to describe 2019 (which I never did), all I could think of was “transition”.  We are transitioning people on and off our team in the next month.  Our family is transitioning into a new season as our daughter weds in May. Our son started college in the fall.  Not to forget, I transitioned two […]

What’s Keeping Me Sane (2019 Edition)

It is so easy to look at life and see what is driving us crazy or what needs to be fixed.  Today I am taking a step back and looking at what is keeping me sane right now.  This is my third year in joining Anne at Modern Ms. Darcy as she encourages others to share what is keeping them sane as the cold […]

Lessons About Connection: My Word for 2018

Fall Links 2018

(photo credit: My honey) One of my favorite things each week is getting all comfy in my chair with my computer, notebook, and a glass of ice coffee.  For a few minutes which sometimes grows into an hour, I catch up on reading different blogs that I enjoy.  The topics range from recipes to Christian discipleship to book reviews.  One thing I […]

What I Learned In October (2018 Edition)

Today, it is Thanksgiving here in West Africa.  It is a national holiday usually celebrated by going to church for a time of thanksgiving.  Maybe later the family will gather for a meal together but nothing like we do in America.  The focus is on being thankful.  So I thought I would take a minute to list a few things that I am thankful […]

Sea Glass Musing

Do you ever feel like you have seasons where the waves are hitting you up against the rocks?  You feel beat up and washed out.  Life is hard.  It could be a difficult relationship, a frustrating job, a high-security environment, or even an illness that affects you or someone you love.  I both love and hate how the Bible has something to say about those […]
