July 4th Meditation

Courtesy of our pastor-friend Toby Sumpter, be exhorted and encouraged on this July 4th. …Here’s the deal: the peace of God was announced by an army of angels that came down and woke up a field full of shepherds at night. The peace of God filled an old man in a temple with a song […]

We have a great deal to learn from David. Although we might be tempted to see him as little better than a barbarian king, we should actually be studying him with a far greater humility of mind. From him, we learn how to fight, how to trust, how to cry, how to pray, how to […]

Easter Lessons

This year, we went out of our way to do a few more hands-on lessons and Easter preparations with the children. The older they get, of course the more they grasp ~ and it is delightful to hear their own 6, 3, and 2 year old sized insights into why we do the things we […]

Saturday… Waiting… Where is My Hope?

Job 30:26 But when I hoped for good, evil came, and when I waited for light, darkness came. Hope is a double edged sword. Walking through Holy Week, we think along the lines of so many events… It’s so busy! Jesus Christ rode into Jerusalem while His people worshipped and called hosanna, He cleansed the […]

It is the liturgical church that has continued to deepen our love of and desire for beautiful old church liturgy. While we were looking for a new church home a year+ […]

Sipping Light

This is a praiseful realization: love is bit and bridle, despair, the beast. To live well is to learn how to ride, how to lean into grief. That is how one of the opening pages in A Small Cup of Light first introduces you to the author, Ben Palpant, as he opens a window into […]

Preparing!

I got goosebumps when reading this post on Preparing Him Room, as we delve into the season of Advent. And while I am a CREC girl at heart, attending an ACNA Anglican church now, it is really great to see some of the Advent nuances making an impression on my family. Yesterday the liturgy at […]

My Wounds

I may have written this post a good while ago (not long after Heritage died), but it feels just as fresh, and my wounds are picked open and oozing even now. But the point is this: the wounds are not for naught. These wounds will be redeemed. There is a reason that I can not […]

He’s the Daddy of Twelve

One thing I adore about my husband is how much he loves his children. All twelve of them. I love how being father of 12 is one of the top things he would describe about himself (for instance, in his Twitter intro), in true Psalm 127:5 form. And it was basically seven years ago that […]
