At the end of our five weeks together, we joined in fellowship around a table to share a meal and discuss some of our gleanings from our time together. One woman suggested that we continue together through the summer by writing creatively on one word.

That’s me! That’s what I need. I need a renewal of my mind. In fact, it occurred to me as I read these words this morning that most of the conversations I’ve enjoyed with friends lately have included these words from my mouth. I’m declaring it openly. My mind is tired. I recognize that my thoughts are often fractured. … More Are you IN?

So, without looking it up in a dictionary, I wrote out my own definition of the word prodigal. … More Lavish Grace & Steadfast Love
You might argue that I don’t know you. I don’t know where you’ve been. Maybe you would counter with the truth that I don’t know what you’ve done in the past or how you are living today. I pretty much know the arguments by heart because most of them were my own arguments to refute the idea God could love me. … More If I had only one chance…
We were so carefree back then; singing and dancing without a care for what anyone thought. These are the memories which have caused me to run to Jesus recently asking Him what happened to my freedom to laugh big and sing loud. When did I become so inhibited? … More A Friend for All Seasons

“What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you? You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it … More Just stop all the fussin’
