seek me and find me

This is my “life-verse”. When I was in my early 30’s, I experienced something life-changing.  I had been going to church steadily for a couple of years, and was doing my best to be a “good” person. But I found myself in a place of complete discontentment.  Everything looked perfect from the outside, but inside, […]

Deep in December it’s nice to remember…

Back in my college days, we sang a beautiful song called “Try to Remember” from the musical The Fantasticks. It’s such a lovely song, with a melancholy melody and lyrics that sing all on their own.  I woke up thinking of this song and remembering what happened to me this past Sunday… After I finished […]

He has made me glad

I had someone recently tell me they were looking for a sign from God.  I told them that He is always faithful and will give them exactly what they need -in His perfect timing! I know this because He has been so faithful to me. With no stream in sight, lately I’ve felt like I […]

no servant is greater than his master

I had a profound experience last year during Holy Week. After a day filled with many obstacles, I decided to wash my cares away in the nail salon.  Honestly, I was ‘not fit for human consumption” at that point.  That’s my fancy way of saying I had a bad attitude! When I walked into the salon […]
