All I Ever Learned in Life I Learned from Planner People

I wanted to let you know of the latest article published over at Carie Harling’s Paper Planning Magazine. When I wrote this article last year, it was a semi-tribute to the many contributors who have impacted my plannerly lifestyle. The list isn’t exclusive, I could have added a number of other names, and stories but for the sake of simplicity, I went with the milestones moments in my planner saturated journey.

When You Have No Mother on Mother’s Day

As Mother’s Day approaches this year, I am finding I’m not ready to celebrate.

As we approach the six month mark of my mom’s passing, I find myself feeling a plethora of unanticipated emotions. The fact is I am just not ready to have a Happy Mother’s Day.

A morning poetic offering as it came this morning. May God be able to speak into the hard places of our hearts that our wills be conformed to His.

Amen.

An Update on Journaling with John and More

May I Have a Word?

It’s the Monday after Easter and I wonder how you, dear reader, friend, fellow sojourner- are doing? Have Easter celebrations left you inspired or do you feel a bit wrung out of faith in the season you find yourself?

Well, I hope you will be encouraged in the knowledge that, regardless of where you think you’re standing, Jesus is able to keep you in all of the seasons you pass through. Our faithful Lord will not leave you high and dry, nor will he hang you out to dry if your faith feels like a big giant fail! He loves you the same whether you’re smiling or full of sadness, whether you’re hopeful, or fearful. Rest in this truth and lean on Him, who is always faithful. Be strengthened in His faithfulness!

Living Water

Hello! I know I am almost a week late in this post- which was supposed to go up Saturday- I apologize and ask for MORE grace and thank you for it! But, today I offer you a poem. Not just any poem, but a story I have rewritten so many times now, I am surprised I can still breathe new life into it…ah, but then again, why SHOULD that surprise me? The Author of this story ultimately IS Spirit...and able to breathe new life to old things, even bring dead things to life! It is but a small miracle, but a miracle no less that this story continues to be told ANEW- many years after it became my own.

I have taken John Chapter 4 and from an original devotional piece I wrote, which has been told and shared in different ways over the years (by me) transformed it into a poem. Since it’s National Poetry Month – HOORAY! – and I have wanted to change it into poem form for awhile, well it’s perfect timing – even though 5 days late for our journey!

 

Also I would love to know how you are doing with Journaling with John – I will be back Saturday but let me know in the comments!

I hope you enjoy this poem as we Revisit the Samaritan Woman…

If you have any thoughts, suggestions on the form or content, or feedback I am open to it!
