The Comfort of Love

Hubby and I agreed to get a brief video done. So I reached for my purse. "Wait a minute," I said, "let me put on some lipstick before you begin. Why can't I toss vanity out the window? But dare I say that we all have a trace of that from time to time. Some of us are...

A Beggar

I am a beggar at your door the steps rising before my hesitant feet I can hear the sounds within your kingdom drawing me, despite my lack of confidence. My feet unclean, I could wipe them more than once and they would still not shed the grime. So I turn and sit at the...

Beauty

Beauty falls like rain,  we can't catch every drop, but we stand still with mouths open to slack our aching thirst. Beauty grows like leaves on the greening tree, we try to grasp the outline  of each stunning leaf but can't. Our eyes can only take in so...

People Pleasing

Jesus had nothing to hide. He was honest, open, genuine...and as we look through the gospels, we see this same theme throughout. What the people saw is what they got. No hidden agendas, no pretenses, just pure, unadulterated love. We see this especially during Jesus'...
