In Memory of Natalie

20190507_122103

My friend, I know you are dwelling in the light of 1 million suns now, walking with the Savior, talking, having those conversations you always dreamed about,

but I took some pictures the other day, and thought of you as I looked through the lens. I hope you enjoy them.

And I thought of how you have encouraged us so many times when we were down, with your words of light and life, and your beautiful photographs.

Thank you my friend. We miss you….I miss you. Pray for us, those still remaining…..

And Lord God, thank You for our friend….Natalie.

Amen. 

In Memory of Natalie Scarberry, a blogging friend, and source of incredible encouragement.

Within the Thunder

20160514_175724

I wonder, does God get angry within the thunder? Or is it simply a matter of heat vs. cool air?

Last night I watched the rain from our porch, as if waiting for a revelation,

but it was only a downpour, pounding on the streets, driven by wind.

If God spoke……I didn’t hear Him…….at least, not this time.

Happy Easter

20180428_172027

We are so amazingly loved……aren’t we?

And contained within

is the mystery discovered.

Even the renewal

of earth declares

the shape, the sense

of wholeness.

Happy Easter!

I have many readers with a different faith than my own, so I wish everyone here the blessings of renewal and peace!

What Would He Say?

20170503_164915

If God himself came down to bring judgment on our nation what would He say to the rich attempting to remove healthcare from the poor?

Many with pre-existing conditions?

What would He say to leaders still putting brown children in cages?

What would He say to White Nationalists, some in government or even in media, continuing to spread hatred, inciting violence?

What would He say to leaders refusing to acknowledge the devastation of our climate changing, putting us all in danger and in harm’s way?

What would He say to a leader that lies about paying off women to keep quiet, about having sex with them?

And most of all what would he say to the people calling faith their home, as they bow down to their vulgar conservative idol, doing all they can to protect him, simply because he is called conservative?

What in heaven’s name would God say?
