Love Deeply

When my son was in Kindergarten, we had his eyes tested and the results showed a severe stigmatism and near sightedness.  He was only seeing 10 inches in front of his face.  Beyond that it was all a blur.  No wonder we couldn’t get him to ride a bike – he couldn’t even see his [...]

I’m not sure what age I was when the question first came to me, but I remember asking it as I sat and stared at an image of a little girl with a mud-caked face dressed in rags, holding her little brother, who was equally dirty, “Why wasn’t that me born there?” The question hung [...]

The news crashed through my understanding and landed somewhere in the unknown. A friend had made a decision that would significantly affect our relationships [...]

One of my friends recently started teaching at our local high school, and several dear friends teach at my kids’ elementary school.  I am crazy about these teachers – just crazy about them! I wanted to make something meaningful for them as they dive into their year of impacting precious lives.  This is what came [...]

*Sarah sat cross-armed close to the car door. Her brown eyes darted back and forth as I spoke, “What are you doing this summer?” I asked, turning my head to look at her from the driver’s seat. “Are you talking to me?” she spurted. “Yes, you!” I smiled back. “Uhhhhh….. nothing?  Staying home?” she said [...]

Bob Goff’s book, Love Does, will light your fire. It will. So don’t pick it up unless you are ready to strike that match. This quote describes the thrust of the book: “Living a life fully engaged and full of whimsy and the kind of things that love does is something most people plan to [...]
