Grounded in Faith

Just a note

There is a list in my mind of my favorite things to read. Those things that make me smile, as I read and think about the words before me.   One of those things is a recipe in my grandma’s handwriting. Raising six kids, grandma knew her way around the kitchen and was able to keep everyone’s tummy full of good things.  Holidays were special…

A word waltz

The old man catches me in the back of the sanctuary, where I’m straightening church bulletins, pencils and childrens’ Quiet Bags. He shuffles his feet, asks how Bible memory is going for the Sunday School children. But perhaps he’s asking if I’m hiding verses in my soul, too? His name is Helmer. He’s…

A “Cat’s in the Cradle” moment

Anna’s fork falls with a guilty clink…

Battling insecurity

Rosie, the matriarch of our little country church, scooted through the crowd and down the center aisle to find me before the postlude even began. “Can you bring a dessert to the church supper Friday night?” she asked, pressing a pen into my hand. She held up a clipboard, and I froze before I looped the first curve on my cursive J. Rosie…

What will Heaven be like?

“I wonder what Heaven will be like,” our older daughter says, staring out the window of the car, with her hand propped on her chin. She’s staring at clouds. I turn on my blinker to change lanes and reach the exit ramp toward home. Our younger daughter is buckled in behind me and blurts out the first answer: “Ice…
