Maybe a minute was hopeful thinking

I know I just started this blog. It’s probably too early to take a break. But so much has happened in the last few months; I can’t even begin to explain all that God is doing in me. I’ve been blogging on and off for a decade. There have been seasons […]

Just Give Me a Minute

Thirsty and I didn’t even know it. It began with a realization in church one day and a quiet, barely even whispered prayer. As I was looking around it dawned on me that so many of my fellow church-goers were deep in communion with God, they were emotional during worship, […]

I Was Thirsty

Am I the only introvert who has extroverted, or as they like to call themselves – normal, friends? Probably not. I’m thinking it might not have been the best idea for me to have befriended so many from this people group. They tend to look at me as if I […]

Any day now, my daughter-in-law will be giving birth to my first grandbaby, a boy. I’ve asked to be called Ama because that is what my younger son called my mother. I can’t believe the day is almost here and I can’t help but think back to when I gave birth […]
