Changing Seasons

Wrapped in a hoodie, my hands tucked in the sleeves, I am surprised by fall this year. The cooler air, the muted greens and yellows of the leaves and the morning wind, all reminders the season is changing. I’ve enjoyed the summer on the lake. Waterskiing, sunset cruises, and gatherings with family and friends. Each a …

Butterflies

Leaves rustle, twisting and turning in the breeze as the forest branches sway, making a symphony of music. Along the path, fluttering through the air, rising and falling with the breeze, a small yellow butterfly searches for a place to land. The sunlight enhances its bright yellow hues. Though smaller than the nail of my …

In Step With God

Hope in the Midst of Restlessness

I am a pacer. I pace when I’m bored, when I’m restless, and when I’m anxious. I don’t know why I choose to pace, it rarely solves the underlying cause. In fact, what usually happens, my emotions begin to rise and fall with the ever increasing pace of my heartbeat, and as my emotions rise, …

Precious Moments

The words echo in my head, “Come see gamma!” My granddaughter wanting my full attention, she grabs my hand and with joy pulls me to see her rock pile. She sees beauty in each rock she gently placed on her chair and desires for me to see what brings her joy. The sweetness of seeing …
