Aaaaaahh! I love that! Then we are not overlooked, after all! When we are following Christ, allowing all we say and do to reflect God's glory, we smell so good and give off such a vibrancy that we can't help but be seen, heard, known (and smelled lol) not only by God, but also those around us!
This morning, with my county's "stay at home" order in place, I was enjoying a few moments of reflection, gazing out my home office window. My winter-weary soul drank in the new, green life budding on everything my eyes touched. New Life Budding The promise of beautiful life yet to come. New Life Promise Then... Continue Reading →

Bill Sweeney, an incredible man with a huge heart and joy for living, no matter the tremendous obstacles in his way. I just had to reblog his latest post. What an inspiration to us all!
Happy New Year!
I believe 2020 will be a great year.
Regular readers of my blog know that I’ve had ALS for twenty-three years. I’ve been on hospice for the last fifteen months, and in that time, I’ve had three close encounters with death. I don’t mean to make light of this, but I think you could say that I have one foot in the grave, and the other is on a banana peel. Knowing this, and reading that I’ve declared that 2020 is going to be a great year, you might be questioning the state of my mental health. I get it, but please hear me out.

Wherever I am, whatever I'm doing, I find your words. And I eat them. And they become the joy and delight of my heart! For you created me, oh God. You see me and hear me, and know me intimately - and yet you ever love me!
I long to be who you created me to be, here on earth. I long for you to fill my being with all things of you - kindness, love, joy, mercy, forgiveness, gentleness, patience, peace, and self control.
