It’s Friday again so here I am joining the flash mob of writers who bravely take five minutes of unedited writing and throw it out there for the world to see. Today’s prompt: FINISH GO. I am staring down finish lines all over the place right now. I was caught up short at the […]

Downstream: FSW Conversation – chapter 2

I dislike that I’m so prepped to be disappointed. I would like to be the person who is believing and anticipating the best but I’m afraid I’m […]

fmf: {belong}

I saw the prompt this morning and I’ve been thinking about it all day. We are in this season of transition where we don’t really belong anywhere. We are leaving here, even if it is temporary. But we are not yet there. Friends on both sides are anticipating, on one side – our coming, on […]

Finding Spiritual Whitespace {review and invitation}

This won’t be my ordinary review. Finding Spiritual Whitespace – Awakening Your Soul to Rest came to me as a gift of grace in the middle of a weary battle. I didn’t know who Bonnie Gray was or what spiritual whitespace was. I don’t even read ‘teaching’ books very often because I learn through stories […]
