Building Our Homes Like a Lego Master

My son loves building with Legos. His room looks like a Lego museum – and often like a construction zone, with tiny bricks strewn all over the floor, just waiting for an unsuspecting parent to walk in and step on them. At the end of this school year, he completed a report on our home… Continue reading Building Our Homes Like a Lego Master

Lessons from a People Mover

It's funny what kids remember. "Mama, remember the time when we sat next to the elevator and ate a cookie?" My son smiled as he repeated the story. He must have been four or five when we took that afternoon outing to the mall. We started out at the play place, then headed to the… Continue reading Lessons from a People Mover

This Changes Everything

“Look! The virgin will conceive and bear a Son, and they will call Him Emmanuel, which means ‘God with us’” (Matt 1:23) NET. God.with.us. Those three words astound me. For thousands of years, God had been worshiped from afar. His holiness stood in stark contrast to mankind’s sin. A thick veil separated His earthly presence… Continue reading This Changes Everything

Look-alikes

By Meredith Mills @DazzledByTheSon “You can’t deny that one’s yours!” That was the comment we heard as my husband carried our littlest into the church where he would be speaking later that morning. It’s true - she definitely bears his image. In fact, I’ve been told she's the female version of him as a child.… Continue reading Look-alikes

Come Close

"Don't You care that she's not helping me?" Martha's words reflected the turmoil in her soul. With so much to do, how could Mary just sit there? Did she forget about their large dinner party tonight? The food wouldn't cook itself! Martha wanted so much for everything to be perfect - the meal, the accommodations,… Continue reading Come Close

When Your Days are Numbered

When your days are numbered, you look at life differently. The pitter patter of not-so-little feet wakes me from my slumber. My bathroom light shocks the early morning darkness. Thirty seconds later comes my little boy's voice, "Mama, I love you." Then he climbs in bed and snuggles up next to me. Almost every morning.… Continue reading When Your Days are Numbered

Eternal Life Now

Like dry, parched ground – that’s how my heart has felt lately. It’s been a while since I blogged. The reason? I haven’t had much to say. I haven’t known what to write about. Last weekend, I went to a Beth Moore conference and that’s when I realized how very parched my soul has been.… Continue reading Eternal Life Now
