I’ve been praying and meditating on the House of the Lord (the mansion God is creating for me) for some years now. I thought I’d share some aspects of how I’ve come to see myself in answer to my prayer … Continue reading

endings and beginnings – on faith – 5/23/13

full grown – 6/8/12

Sometimes I catch myself trying to explain, in great detail, things meant to be lived and experienced, rather than explained. While explanations can be helpful, it is in the living out where the true life comes. So I remove all the explaining words and am left with … Continue reading
