judgement & gossip? but my intentions were good!

Graffiti is like gossip. To some it's a work of art.

Confession: This past week I repeated something that was not my place to share.

But hey, don't worry. I had "good intentions." (Insert extreme sarcasm.)

At least, at the time, I thought I did. I even used the words, "Between the two of us..."

But we all know how that goes. To continue reading this post, please click here.

we all need grace

We are all broken and wounded people, 
desperately in need of grace.

The news was rough this week, Friends.

The stories being reported just keep getting worse. Most days I can't even stomach watching reading the news. One of the many highlights lowlights this week was the church hidden-camera scandal. (Sigh.)

I read an article reporting driving deaths linked to marijuana doubled in Washington state. (And legalizing the drug serves what purpose?!?)

I can't even begin to process the horrific videos surfacing about Planned Parenthood. (And the extremely sad reality that the stories are being buried in the media. All for a Lamborghini.) I just can't comprehend the 'why.' Especially after losing my twins 2 years ago. (I am so very thankful this life is not the end.)

Then, of course there are the countless articles (& tweets) about people who used an online 'service' to secretly make their fantasies come true publicly destroy their marriages and lives.
So much I could say. But really, the bottom line is we are all broken and wounded people, desperately in need of grace.

When I was 18, I made a big mistake in my personal life. And, because I was working for a church, I lost my continue reading, please click here to visit my new website. Also, be sure to update the link from your website or bookmark my page.

when it's time to transition back to 'normal life' (post-vacation post)

Eventually, every season must come to an end.
Thankfully, that means a new season is just beginning!

I just got home from driving Geoff into work. His first day back after ten glorious weeks of togetherness, travel, and rest (peppered with a dislocated elbow, appliance breakdowns, illness, and bickering kids.) Sabbatical 2015 was all we hoped it would be, and more.

As I sat down to find a photo for today's post, I saw the ice cream picture I took in Alberta last month...and I started to cry. (Yes. Cry!)

How in the world does a photo of five ice cream cones make a grown woman cry? Ah, it's the number. Five.
