2012 Favorites

2012 Favorite People, Moments, and Posts
"and the tree doesn't even know it- that all that root is there supporting it." - Noah

On His Own
"He said that last year he wasn't sure about God.
He looked at us like we would be disappointed.
We weren't.
We told him questioning was good, and that he needed to find the Truth on his own."

"Mommy, you should go on the swing! 
Come on, I'll help you.
As she helps we giggle...
I put down my not-important and took hold of my so-important.  

Full Containers
"We can't round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit."
When I say the name "Jesus" I remember Who's in charge, and who and what is not... and I love his name. His name is comfort food.  I eat his saving-name and my 
hungry soul is nourished. 

16 years ago Michael picked me up and carried me out of the church after we were announced "Mr. & Mrs."  He's still carrying me.

There's a wealth of things I long to share with you... but one saving name 
is the Sum of all I long to say... "Jesus"
(Day 31 from 31 days of God-giving)

"It's noisy in my head...because I ache for Shalom. 
Shalom means- completeness, wholeness, health, 
peace, absence of agitation, perfect, full...
The noise: over-thinking, scheming,'s all my own effort to find shalom. 
Vain attempts which leave me shalomless."

 Live in Peace!
