Are You a Pleasing Aroma?

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!

Perspective!

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 →

Unshakable Hope

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.

Well, then these words are for you!

I stopped a moment to take in its unique and sort of wild beauty. While studying it, I couldn’t help draw a parallel of this flower’s half bloomed, unique beauty, to the partially bloomed beauty of our lives.

This last month I’ve been doing a group study about letting go of worldly definitions of beauty and feeling free to be the beautiful, wonderfully made individuals God intended us to be. Looking at this beautiful, sort of exotic looking flower this morning, I thought, “this flower represents every one of us – such unique, vibrant qualities, and still in the process of blooming!” But oh my, how beautiful are the budding characteristics! The already bloomed parts that make this unique flower so special, which are weathering…
