Fill me up, Lord

"You will seek me, & find me when you seek me w/ all your heart," God says. But that is not the whole story. I'm not just a searcher. I'm also a hider. You too. We have to come face-to-face w/ our tendency to hide, to get lost. ~John Ortberg, Love Beyond Reason

Trying to Pivot towards Balance

This is my journey right now....

Fast, explosive, hurry/hurry


I'm headed somewhere else now....

Slow down
Being Present

skids off into the sunset
pauses to catch the streak of red through the sky

ambles to a ramble

back on
back off

the seesaw of life goes up and down
trying to pivot
towards balance

The Something of Oz

Windows, and Mirrors, & Self-Discovery

Windows, and Mirrors, & Self-Discovery

Windows, and Mirrors, & Self-Discovery

The Waiting

The waiting is unbearable.
But, fortunately or unfortunately,


is all about the waiting times
the in between times.

And it's how we sit through those times
which is a reflection
of how
we deal with life

and what our truest beliefs

Bitter & Sweet: a duality of feelings

I just won a free copy of Shauna Niequist's new book "Bittersweet"!


I think most changes in life are bitter & sweet.
I remember my job change-
closer to family, more continuing education offered,

but less pay, loss of friends, loss of ministry.

My singleness is very bittersweet
-I don't have children nor a mate,
but I do have independence.

The bitter & sweet have different components,
but are all apart of my journey

& really a window to who I am as a person

& my relationship w/God.
