hyg·ge [ˈho͞oɡə, ˈho͝oɡə] A quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being. Phillipians 4:11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content in whatever the circumstances.

Mystical Hope

2024-01-01T21:37:19+00:00

People get excited about the new year. I get it. Who of us does not look forward with expectation and hope. Maybe last year wasn’t great. Even if it was wonderful, the human spirit is drawn to what a new year promises.  I have never been one to make new year resolutions. I want the zero to sixty-five race to longer days and warmer weather. January through March is a hard time for me. The bleakness of days, and cold snaps mixed with warm weather fronts, at least on the East Coast, is annoying. So, this [...]

The Rocks Cry Out

2022-09-12T18:02:09+00:00

Who is the True God except the Eternal? Who stands like a rock except our God? The True God who encircled me with strength and made my pathway straight. Psalm 18:31-32   Excerpt from The Rocks Cry Out by Jody Thomae, available on Amazon: "When the Pharisees told Jesus to make his disciples stop crying out in worship as he entered Jerusalem on a donkey, he replied, “I tell you, if these [worshipers] were silent, the very stones would cry out” (Luke 19:40). He was possibly referencing a passage in Habakkuk 2:11 that says that the stones in the wall and the rafters in [...]

Sewing Seeds of Grace

2022-01-12T23:34:59+00:00

“A seed doesn’t struggle to become a tree. It simply unfolds in grace.” (Chopra) Everything a tree needs to become a tree: grand, enriched with life-giving nutrients, and full of color—is inside the seed. The tree doesn’t have to strive to reach its fullest potential. Everything needed for growth is present in the seed long before it breaks open, travels through the dark unknown, and bursts through the soil. This is true with all life. It is astounding to consider the abundant life force in every seed.  2 Peter 1:3 states, “His divine power has given us everything we require for [...]

2023-10-21T23:28:54+00:00

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger." Luke 2:16 (NIV) "Hurry up! We're going to be late to the choir concert!" "Come on guys. Help me tidy up before our guests arrive." "Is it 6 a.m. already? I gotta get to that door buster sale as soon as it opens so I don't miss out on the deals!" With the holiday season upon us, the music at the mall announces that folks are dreaming of a white Christmas. That may be true. But in reality, many women are dreaming of something else [...]

A Place Where God Spoke

2021-11-01T13:52:22+00:00

  Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land. (Genesis 12:6) The very place where Abram stopped, Shechem, we find the terebinth tree of Moreh. The word for Moreh in Hebrew means “to throw, to shoot, to teach” and came to mean “a place where God spoke.” This is where God spoke to Abram—in fact appeared to him. Now it shall be, when the Lord your God has brought you into the land which you go to possess, that you shall put the [...]
