And rain poured down
I didn’t care
You were there
Your smile the light

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU’RE ON THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE – AND IT’S NOT BY CHOICE!

Share Button

It was a wild ride. It began in the dark with, “a great shriek of wind.” Then came the shaking. The house shook so hard Dorothy lost her footing. She suddenly found her bottom firmly planted on the floor. The only choice she had left was to “enjoy” the ride.

Early morning view from my corner

Next to the window, morning light flows over me as I sit in my green velvet wingback chair. Sipping cautiously on steaming cappuccino that’s warming my hands, I listen to early birdsong while breathing in the view of my backyard.

What are the three most important words I’ve ever heard in my life? I love you? Nope. I’ll give you a hint. Jesus spoke them on the cross just moments before he died. Here’s another hint.

Digital StillCameraOn Sundays, instead of going to church, I meet with two deep friends. Our goal is to grow our souls in all the good things God has for us. We believe this growth leads to transformed lives – our own and then hopefully, the lives that we reach out to.

We share a meal. We pray.  We sing and cry. We laugh a LOT. AND we spend quite a bit of time… dreaming!  Continue reading
