Just for Me

Enemies. They come in different forms. For us, our current enemy is not one of human nature that we can sit down and attempt to reason with. Instead this enemy came in slowly under the radar. It showed itself gradually over the last two years in different forms. Today we are tackling it week by…

Always ‘n Forever

Today, thirty-four years later, we find ourselves facing new challenges. This new place was a surprise. It’s not a place we ever looked down the road and saw in our future. Yet here we are hanging onto that covenant and to each other.

Broken Pieces

“But You promised me! This is not what You said You would do! You hurt me!” Raw and real words. Yes, I cried them out to my Lord. I just couldn’t understand. While my husband and I were praying over a difficult situation, I laid out tough questions. Right after prayer, my husband received a…

He Fully Understood

The 2020 Passover has come at us in full force. As our world has been hit with a plaque, so many have taken to focusing on this ancient feast and its meaning. To me, it is significant that we are seeing red ribbons on doorposts. For the most part, gone are the bunnies that usually adorn front lawns.

Only My Son deserves the focus.”

Events such as family gatherings, class parties, school and church plays and cantatas, each brings a rush of fond memories. In fact, many stanzas that resonate often in my mind…

Yet sitting now and reflecting on our time, it is not just the activity with family that stands out to me. It is also posts and videos. Stories shared by others which left…

Treasure the Gift

I still remember the first Christmas spent around my mother-in-law. The joy of celebrating the birth of her Savior was contagious. One thing that stood out to me was the fact that she did not rush to take down the decorations or tree. She savored every aspect of celebrating Christ’s birth and was in no…

A Swaddled Gift

“And this will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:12 Such a familiar passage. And yet it actually speaks a different language. It was a language the shepherds understood. And the angles knew the shepherds could recognize the deeper meaning when…
