Sharing my journey with God. A life of wonder as He has opened my eyes to see His thoughts, His heart, His character, and His ways revealed to me through nature and life experiences.
A radical shift. A radical wonder. My hope and prayer is that as He beckons you to Himself, you will fall deeper in love with the One who knows you and loves you more completely than anyone on earth.

What Kind of Wonder
I see that word Twice now
On the back of a cab
As I’m driving around this busy place.
Might have even been a year ago When I first saw that same cab
Maybe he lives near me
Or maybe You’re trying to remind me of something
There are two types of
Sometimes you wonder
Wonder how it will all work out
Wonder if you make the right decisions
Focused on the right things
Wonder if there is time for this or that
That’s the wrong kind of wonder
It implies doubt
Doubt lives in fear
It does not live in love
You have a choice
What kind of wonder will you live in?
I make you wonder
That’s what I hear
the Spirit whisper in my ear
I make you wonder –
Marvel at how things work
when you least expect
Suddenly the boy makes the travel soccer team
The house to rent - sight unseen - that you’re still living in seven years
The perfect fit of a job for your husband after one career
at the grace of new
where the strength for the daily battles comes from
A sad night ... after making the first cuts and practicing for months - literally, our youngest found out he did not make the JV soccer team this year at high school. I leaned over to kiss your head, and it was like yesterday. You were a toddler again running to snuggle with me when you were sad. Now you’re this man child, Too big to sit on my lap. And my arms are not the place you want to run to. I wanted you to make the team so badly It hurts. And I feel the weight of your disappointment. Because You are so Hard-working. Coachable. But this stumbling block in the road, it.
does. not. define. you. Take it and learn and grow. Like you did the one time you didn’t get a new belt after testing in karate; Sensei said you needed more time and confidence. Like Michael Jordan, who was "too short" at 5'11" to play for his school's JV basketball team as a sophomore. Like countless others who had a goal and a passion and it took a long route to get there. Catch the wind.
You and me both, buddy. And it's about more than just the weather.
I ponder as the pug wanders farther away from me, trying to find his way out of the mess of snow and ice.
He doesn't know it's safer With me.
Close to me.
I will lead him in a good path a smooth path. I will carry him to sure ground when from his perspective there are only mountains of snow.
Follow in my steps or walk beside me.
Stay. Close. To. Me.
I can hear the Holy Spirit whisper to me as I'm whispering to the pug.
Abide. In. Me.
As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father...As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. …
