Lent 2014: Heal

One week to Palm Sunday. I am feeling sad yet calm. Body: I hope this bug – whatever it is – goes away soon. I need to be able to keep food down slowly. Else, come Tuesday and Thursday, when

Do Not Lean

April has been a crazy month. Wall-to-wall schedule. Rolling with the punches. Laughing about the insanity. Pulling stunts. Picking up jaw from ground a few times. Still scratching head about some things. It hasn’t been healthy. Where I had the

Skunkwworks 13: One

Why should my heart be sad?

Preparing for Friday. At this stage, I’m picking suitable music for the reflections segment. That is good news – it means I’m on schedule. Either that, or I’m still procrastinating on the important but difficult pieces. Inert & sticky willpower.

Moonlit day

I love my bedroom window. I see amazing things there. Every day the masterpiece it frames changes. Looked up a bit in my darkened room tonight and gazed at the moon. Reminded of how little I know. And thankful for

We were in Conversation again this morning, and it was great. I’m so glad and grateful to be present. One word stood out for me today from all that was shared. Forgiven.  Wasn’t expecting that. But when it appeared, I
