Love, Find a Way

I am not alone in feeling the world has come undone. God surely is weeping for us. "Love God and love your neighbor," so simple and yet we continue to miss the mark. I am weary from all the violence in my neighborhood and many neighborhoods across the land and

God of the Stars and my Beating Heart

I wrote this prayer early Sunday morning for church. After the service, someone came up to me and said, "Thank you for reminding me I have a little of heaven in me." We are more than our current circumstances, our insecurities, our flawed humanity. Embroidered throughout us is the the

Welcome Back

This past spring tested me in mind, body and spirit. Four tragic funerals. I was soul-flat. The pain and suffering had worn down the leather soles of my faith. Instead of panicking, I got quiet. I have been here before. This summer, I found myself asking some heart-felt questions: Is

Trees Take the Long View

I have always loved trees: the prehistoric ginkgo, the Angel Oak, the sweet Southern magnolia, a grove of olive trees, the elegant weeping willow. I fell in love with my husband hiking Sewanee’s famous Perimeter Trail beneath a towering fortress of pine trees. For my 40th birthday, David gifted me

The Tremble

Sometimes "Life" (the Ukraine Russian war, the economic downturn, the Afghan Refugee crisis in Nashville, teenage shenanigans, family health issues, a child off at college, friends battling cancer, addiction, betrayal in their marriages, aging parents, a future unpredictable and unknown —the list is endless) leaves me feeling anxious and insecure

God Step In

How can we not feel discouraged by the current state of Creation? A tyrant with no moral compass is pillaging what is good. I discovered that my beloved Park where I run, hike, walk my dogs and pray is using toxic glysophate to “clean up” the overgrowth (kills nature, gets
