Knitting has never been my thing. Too uneven in my stitches, dropped ones here and there that have to be caste on again. I admire those who can move evenly along. Courage is kind of like knitting your way through a ball of yarn. You drop, fall or fail and get up again.

What is your image of courage?

To journey…

“To journey without being changed is to be a nomad. To change without journeying is to be a chameleon. To journey and be transformed by the journey is to be a pilgrim”. ~ Mark Nepo

How do you journey?


Bushwhacking is hiking through an area where no path exists forgoing the well-worn trail. We might trip over hidden tree roots, move through invisible poison ivy or step on hidden snakes. The cost of short cutting might not reveal itself until later.

Where are you tempted to take shortcuts?


I have discovered that something is awakened through failure, tragedy, and disappointment. It is a place of learning and potential creativity. In such moments you can get lost in despair or denial, or you can recognize the failure and run toward the hope of something new.

How do you run towards hope?

On Wednesday…

On Wednesday anointing oil spilled over in abundance. A woman is bringing a respite from the darkness of this week…a powerful blessing, a sign of extravagant love, the pouring out of the Spirit.

Where do you experience that anointing in your life?
