Love is patient. It kindly waits for the gift of the other. It anchors itself through the hurricane, wades in the river and sits on the shore, secure anchored in the One who made the grains of sand. It heals where other hands have bruised and wraps you in a warming rest.  A sanctuary; a safe […]

It was early October. We gathered in downtown Raleigh at Red Hat, to enjoy all that a late Sunday afternoon would offer us. Games, snacks, donuts, and chasing each other on a rooftop while viewing the tall buildings that reach into heaven. Family time felt good and family time is good.

{Day3} I was listening to Lara Casey yesterday talk about being in a hard season for the past year. She mentioned not running away from it but sitting in it and facing it and being patient for the solution. My heart was screaming. As a business owner I have so many weak areas that I […]

The other day I was hurrying around the house like a banshie trying to multitask.
