Good Friday is not the end

He didn’t defend himself.
He didn’t try to justify his cause or prove his innocence.
He stood there…silent…like a lamb to the slaughter.
When offered the opportunity to speak into the situation and right the wrongs…clarify his position…he chose to stand in quiet strength.
Pilate, so arrogant in his authoritative role…his title…believed that he held the power of life [...]

I woke up this morning feeling heavy…weighted down.

Christmas hath a darkness
Brighter than the blazing noon,
Christmas hath a chillness
Warmer than the heat of June,

For all angels soon to sing:
Earth, put on your whitest
Bridal robe [...]

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will [...]

Christmas day, wrapping paper scattered across the floor and turkey leftovers sitting on the kitchen counter, I sat on the couch and hit the mental replay button over the last 24 hours. Days were spent in the kitchen preparing all the yummy Christmas favorites- from sweet potato casserole to stuffing made from scratch, to pumpkin [...]

2020, literally, went out with a bang last night. A storm blew in yesterday evening bringing with it lightening that lit up the sky and claps of thunder unlike any I had ever heard before. Sitting around our living room with our three oldest, we all joked that 2020 was throwing a temper tantrum as [...]

peace – advent

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne [...]
