These are details of my dad’s last 5 weeks on earth. Miraculous and full of the Glory of God in and around my dad. I wrote them to my church family, Grace Life, while I was with my family in Louisiana. Dec 2011-Jan 2012. He was born on Christmas Day 1945 and took his first eternal breath on New Years Day 2012. What a life. So thankful to have these remembrances.

We’re not orphaned DNA. :)

There doesn’t have to be someone to blame.  Letting go of the blame game will allow you to set yourself free….allowing an entirely different perspective to be seen and honored. Every decision not made in love is made in fear, … Continue reading

Look for beauty.

When you buy a car all of the sudden you see that same kind of car everywhere.  The cars have always been around but you haven’t noticed them.  It seems uncanny but it’s the way the universe is set up.  … Continue reading

The world is for you. :)

Dare to believe that the world is for you…..that the birds know your worth and its a joy for them to wake up singing to you. Take it personal and smile back.

Believe in your good heart.

Actions don’t determine worth. Good or bad. Status doesn’t determine worth. Whatever mistake you made or think you made in the past doesn’t change your identity. Whatever damage you’ve caused or experienced doesn’t define your value. Everything in life that … Continue reading

Know who you are and fear not.

Ok. Here’s how I see it. There is nobody on planet earth that is below hanging out with. The world’s wisdom has always said “You become like who you hang out with.”  Which means be careful. Jesus never ever said … Continue reading

The rest in Christ

God certainly does not ask for, require or need money spent on buildings.  We are His dwelling place and the ones who are still building temples haven’t seen the fullness of the unseeen realm in themselves yet.  I believe it’s … Continue reading

Eternity is within you.

Eternity is within (with and in) you. You have more talent, passion and love in you than you could ever discover in this lifetime! You are so much more than you see. What an adventure to begin to listen to … Continue reading

Viewing the past through a new lense.

At some point, in our stroll through the beauty of the gardens, I looked back and my soul was full of thankfulness at the glory that was behind us. It revealed a whole new view than what I’d experienced on … Continue reading

Stuck in the middle with you

I don’t always see humanity in it’s purest and beloved form….especially at the end of a trip, (on my last leg) when I’m ready to be home and Groucho Marx walks on the plane with an attitude he’s obviously been … Continue reading

Perfectly conditioned to breathe…

I recently watched an incredible video of the sun, moving forward at 70,000 miles per hour…and all of the planets vortexing (rather than rotating) around it. When I think of how fast and far we’re moving, any given second….perfectly conditioned … Continue reading

The gleam of glory in our eyes….

When I think of all the hurt man is creating in and around himself (to himself and others) hopelessness and despair begin to clamp around my heart…until I remember the value of the one caught in deception, about themselves and … Continue reading

The thrill of hope…

The thrill of hope, a weary world rejoices….. The world is weary of trying to measure up…of waking up daily, thinking “What do I need to do today to prove my worth?” What kind of hope would cause a weary … Continue reading

Hope for a broken heart

Father, before time began you thought of us and knew that we would captivate you for all eternity. When our hearts are broken we feel a sense of rejection and unworthiness. Our imagined secure future (through another source) is suddenly … Continue reading

Can we disappoint God through tithing? Or anything?

We have all the blessings of heaven right now…in Christ. We were in him before time began and there’s no chance we’re able to tie God’s hands with our tithing performance. He’s already given us everything in His possession. He’s … Continue reading

Lack?

I think what’s going on with all of our compassionate hearts is that we feel responsible for the outcomes. We’re also looking at ourselves (and the wounded) as lacking something….when Jesus says we lack nothing. Even more than that, we … Continue reading

How does God look at suicide? And mentally challenged people?

This letter is in response to a woman wondering whether her husband (who committed suicide) will be with the Lord and whether her son can understand enough to accept Him. I believe the Lord understood your husband’s original value, created … Continue reading

Separation is an illusion

You are not alone in your fear of separation.  It’s an epidemic, resulting from years of well meaning but highly misinformed pulpit speakers.  I hear Paul saying what sin does to destroy lives in this realm.  He’s trying to encourage … Continue reading

You can trust your heart

You can trust your heart, for it is good.  I believe all of the evil in the world stems from man believing that he has an evil heart.  There’s a lot to be said for the verse “As a man … Continue reading

45th birthday

45 years ago today the Lord broke into the realm of time and space and began to experience Life as me. Oh how the angels must have worshiped! He never tires of my union with Him… always wooing me into … Continue reading

The accounts of Jesus didn’t end in the bible

The bible didn’t stop with the accounts of the apostles. Your encounter with The Lord is as inspired as theirs. While their stories are miraculous and amazing, we were never meant to live vicariously through them. Your story is, too. … Continue reading
