Lent Part 5 – Invitation to Care Less

Drip, drip, drip… That’s the dailyness of life slowly eroding your heart.  Whoosh, crash, roar… Here comes a raging river of tragedy sweeping you downstream in a torrent of whitewater.  Sound familiar? Whether it’s the ongoing press of life or the sudden intensity of a crisis, we all know what it’s like to be weighed […]

Lent Part 4 – Invitation to UnMask

Recently my family was getting ready to go somewhere and I said, “Give me a minute – I’ve got to put my makeup on.”  At that point my 11-year-old blurted out, “There’s Adam and Eve’s Apple for you.”  I turned and looked him in the eye to see if he had really just made the deep […]

Lent Part 3 – Invitation to Bend Toward the Light

God has been showing me this week that I need more heliotropism in my life. If you’ve never heard of heliotropism, don’t go looking for that word in the Bible – you won’t find it there. It’s actually a scientific term to describe what happens when plants bend toward the sun. (It’s also a fun word to say!)

Lent Part 2b: A Simple Lenten Practice to Consider

Cross-Shaped Lenten Candleholder  A practice that many people observe at Christmas is counting down the weeks of Advent leading up to Christmas Day.  Likewise, it can also be meaningful to mark the weeks of Lent.  About ten years ago, my husband took two pieces of wood and created a cross that we have turned into a Lenten […]

Lent Part 2: Invitation to Die to Self

“I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed.  But if it dies, it produces many seeds.  The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”          […]

Lent Part 1: Invitation to Journey with Jesus

 Although Valentine’s Day is this Sunday, the day I’m most looking forward to is next Wednesday – the beginning of Lent.  If you’ve never even heard of Lent, you may wonder what I’m talking about (and you’d be in good company).  But if you have heard of Lent, you may wonder how I could possibly […]

Fresh Snow – Fresh Start

SNOW! I couldn’t believe it actually snowed here this morning. Yes, we live only about an hour away from Tahoe where it snows regularly in the winter. But it hasn’t snowed here at this elevation in more than 30 years – not since I was in 8th grade (oops, I’m revealing my age). The fluffy […]

Recognizing God’s Voice

….All my confidence, all my certainty, all my plans, my entire future was thrown up for grabs. That may sound dramatic but I was seventeen. From my vantage point it was dramatic. It seemed to me that my whole life was on the line…. {…click on the title to read more…}

A Bank Robber Finds Freedom on the Way to Prison

…This friend had us all fooled. No one, not even his wife, suspected he was gambling or knew how much trouble he was in. He wanted to be seen as a “good Christian” instead of being a real Christian, and he was succeeding. But underneath the surface, like a cancer, hidden sin was doing its damage… {…click on title to read more…}

Uni-Tasking as a Pathway to God

I am the queen of multi-tasking, as any of you who know me can attest, but I’m beginning to think that over-exposure to multi-tasking is hazardous to your brain — and to your spiritual life. {…click on the title to read more…}
