rain

There’s something beautiful about rain, something truly beautiful. It’s raining right now.  Not too heavily, but enough to wet everything right through. At the very first sound, when the rain begins hitting our skylights, my heart wants to start chatting with God. Rain does wonders  ...

still

I’m learning to be still. It’s not easy. Life is busy, so very busy.  There is a constant flow of “join this, do this, be this, answer this, ask this, fix this”. Then I read… Be still and know that I am God.  Psalm 46:10 Does that mean I can’t know God unless  ...

to share a home

There’s a lot of noise in our home at the moment.  We’ve got builders in our roof converting some attic space into a useable area.  It’s so exciting and we’ve talked about it for years. I can’t wait to see it. Actually, I can’t wait to use it.  To move things  ...

pray-reading scripture

I love to pray-read scripture.  That is, to read scripture at the same time as praying it as a prayer.  There’s something about doing that that makes me really stand up and pay attention instead of just reading through the words on a page. Stormie Omartian’s prayers have always been  ...
