No More Shadows

No More Shadows

All-day, my worries chased me— work problems, bills that needed paying, sick family members, and the ever-present pandemic. Like shadows, they trailed me wherever I went, chasing my heels and my heart with their darkness. I threw every coping skill I had at them. But...

A Simple Morning

A Simple Morning

Out on my walk, I stop to admire a single red rose that looks to be the guardian of the garden. It reaches up over the fence, questioning my motive for having stopped in front of its yard. "Just wanting to experience God," I explain. I bury my nose in its opened...

These Are Beautiful

These Are Beautiful

I gazed at my reflection in the mirror as I brushed my teeth: wrinkles, sagging skin, and three inches of dark roots publically exposing that I'm a bottle blonde. So much for beauty during this pandemic, I thought. I spit the toothpaste out and rinsed my mouth. "I...

Casual Friday

The noon hour arrived faster than I thought— so lost was I in my work that I didn't notice the time passing. I pushed myself away from my desk and made my way to the backyard, grabbing a red apple off the kitchen counter. I sunk my teeth into its flesh—holding it in...

Patience Isn’t Passive

I shook the sleep from my eyes and kicked off the covers. "Get going," I told myself. But the truth was, I didn't want to get out of bed. The monotonous days of sheltering-in-place were getting me down. I put on the same clothes I'd worn the past few days—It's not...

There Goes My Heart

There Goes My Heart

I tugged on my shoes and put on my mask for my afternoon walk in the neighborhood. I was in need of movement and a change of scenery from the four walls of my room. When I turned the corner I saw a young woman halfway down the block pushing a stroller, her long brown...

Obedience Wins The Day

Obedience Wins The Day

"God, sometimes I don't want to write," I confessed as I sat staring at the keyboard. "I don't think I can share another little story with the world." "But you always do," God spoke gently. "Yes, somehow I do." I sighed, not feeling very enthusiastic. "You show up...

This Is Your Power

This Is Your Power

"The news isn't good again today," I sighed and turned off the television. I went outside to sit in the sun, hoping it would change my darkening mood. "So many things going wrong. So many people hurting—and I'm powerless to do anything about it," I said. "It is an...
