As I contemplate my thirteen precious children today, on PAIL (pregnancy and infant loss) Remembrance Day, I am praising God for His beautiful crying forth of ideas which created each one of them. I still daily get to set my eyes on four of them, and I am daily blown away by His imagination in […]

Walking in the Way

Come, sweetheart… come for a walk with your mama. It was not long ago that I carried you every time I went walking, but then you grew a bit and began to stretch your legs. Another little one came along then, and I carried him in my arms while holding your hand tightly in my […]

Christ Died

While we were yet sinners. Christ suffered for us. Died for me. He was stricken. Smitted. Afflicted. Forsaken. Dead in a completely gory trauma.   And there was darkness. Despair. Agony. Unknowns. Hell. Many Questions What about that tree– the one that would be sawn asunder, its limbs lashed to a T to brace his bruised body? […]

Arise, Shine! Our Light has Come!

Christ was born! He fulfilled the prophecies! The Incarnate King! God with us! This last Sunday we celebrated the naming and circumcision of Jesus, His presentation in the temple where Simeon (my son’s namesake) sang, And today we celebrate the Magi coming to worship Him.

The Fleeting Moments

Somehow I have always found it easier to incorporate my children into my world than it is for me to enter into their […]

Smoke, Sky, and Sea

A filmy western sky of smoky red, Blossoming into stars above a sea Of soft mysterious dim silver spread Beyond the long gray dunes’ serenity; Where the salt grasses and sea poppies press Together in a wild sweet loneliness. ~from “Twilight in Abegweit” by L.M. Montgomery~

Sharing With You

Some pictures: A Scripture passage: Colossians 3:1-17 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

First Day of Spring

Published by under Poetry

Of course it’s a winter wonderland on the first day of spring. Hehe. When my leaves fall, wilt Thou encompass them?    The gold of Autumn flown, the bare branch brown, The brittle twig and stem,    The tired leaves dropping down– Wilt Thou encompass that which men call dead?    I see the rain, […]

What Utter Joy

Published by under Faith,Grief,Life,Poetry

It is often hard to put one’s experience down in words, and even more difficult is the task of penning one’s innermost ponderings. Not just what I have experienced, but how that experience has molded me and what I retain now from the experience. Asher is three and a half months old already. I have […]
