Love Is A Diamond

Love has many facets. It can be fun, passionate, enduring, broken, healed, playful, reverent, bold, intimate, verbose and silent. It has highs and lows and plateaus. It can have different chapters, like a book, and it can deepen and mellow with age, like a fine wine. It can be like a multi-faceted diamond. This presents […]

Fragrance

‘One thing I have asked of the Lord, And that I will seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in his presence] All the days of my life, To gaze upon the beauty [the delightful loveliness and majestic grandeur] of the Lord And to meditate in his temple.’ (Psalm 27:4 Amplified) […]

Linger

When I was a kid, I loved going on sleepovers. It was about the whispered sharing of secrets and stories by torchlight while snuggled in sleeping bags. It was about gorging ourselves on junk food. It was about movie marathons and video game tournaments. It was definitely about not having any grown-ups around. But it […]

Jesus in Isolation

Now that Easter has passed, I find myself thinking about Jesus and his times of isolation. I must have isolation on the brain. I wonder why. In these trying times, it can be tempting to think others who have gone before us have not experienced this hardship. When it comes to Jesus, we may be […]

Faith in a Time of You-Know-What

Ever since the you-know-what hit mere weeks ago, I have seen an escalation of anxiety in the world. The presence of a pandemic, coupled with social isolation, has served to heighten the anxiety of many people. This has me thinking about fear, lament and faith. What exactly does it mean to have faith in a […]

The Waiting Room

I spent this morning in a waiting room. Not coz I had nothing better to do. And not coz there was anything wrong with me. Thank you kindly for asking. It was for my cat. Yes, the things you do for love. While I was waiting for my cat to be seen, I got thinking […]
