Mimicking David {New Every Morning}


Since we have moved, it has been the same thing every night. Fear. Anxiety. Sleeplessness. Desperation. Why? Every night I worry about Simon falling asleep. Every night I try five hundred different tricks to help him sleep through the night. And every night, I start to panic that I will, ‘NEVER SLEEP AGAIN!’ You many […]

Not by Works {GROW in His Word: Ephesians 2:8-9}

This post is part of our Spring GROW in His Word Session on Forgiveness, Grace and Mercy.

On Celebrating Goodbyes {New Every Morning}

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh (New Every Morning)

He runs wild from tree to tree, gleefully yelling tuh-ree, tuh-ree. The neighbor’s kitty dashes by, and he darts after it. kih-ee, kih-ee. There are boxes to be packed. Memories to be stored. Floors to be cleaned and scribbles to be painted over. But just for this moment, I’m not worried or rushed. For this […]
