I recently spoke with a woman who, like many, is mourning the loss of a loved one this Christmas season. Behind her pain was the conviction that he was in a better place.

I am strict, really strict when it comes to the amount of time my kids spend in front of screens. Anytime I, or others, question my reason for this I think of The Jed Song, also known as the theme song of the Beverly Hillbillies. It is a staple bedtime song in my house. Why?... Continue Reading →

Their face was deformed and almost melted looking with bones moved and flesh loose. A voice told me that this is how this person truly looks, sort of... Continue Reading →
Every time I am asked this question, and that has been a lot lately, I think of my high school pottery teacher, Mr. Ludwig. At some point during our four-year journey together, I was complaining that I didn’t have enough time to do whatever it was he was asking me to do. He very wisely... Continue Reading →
I found out this morning that someone very dear to my family passed away late Saturday night. She was someone who meant a great deal to my sons, as well as my husband and I. We each prayed for her healing during family prayer time and I, in my nightly alone time with God, outright... Continue Reading →

I’ve had a hard time deciding what this first random thoughts entry should be about. Should it be about the challenges of publishing for the first time, the beautiful eggplant I’m growing, the heartaches friends are experiencing and me to some extent with them, or maybe about The Light and how I am both excited...
