His eye is on the sparrow

Thursday, 31 January, 2013

What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin ? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows. Mathew 10:29-31 The greatest struggle of our culture today is a struggle of value. I […]

He cares for me

Monday, 14 May, 2012

Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7     He was truly humble, this Jesus we love. I am hopelessly obsessed with all that makes up and shapes my little life. How infinitely impossible I must be to love. And yet, all my worries, all the details of my […]

This one is mine

Tuesday, 27 March, 2012

I remember hearing a story about a young woman who had been out with two young men that were like brothers to her. They had been downtown  strolling along the streets when they were approached by a man. The clear toll of a homeless life stared out from his empty eyes.  The young woman watched […]

Even Me

Monday, 20 February, 2012

The Mary Magdelene story A monologue I don’t know how I could bring myself to do what I did last night. How I could be so… forward. But this Carpenter has spoken such words of hope… answering questions about God I haven’t known how to ask. Last night, I wanted to be with Him. To […]

Little Moments, part 2 of my love story

Friday, 7 October, 2011

“It’s the little moments that make life big.” Chapter One My hands filled with dirt at the sudden rush of gravity pulling me and a stifled man-laugh from my cousin behind me confirmed my worse fears. I had fallen FLAT on my face… a very familiar phenomenon for me. A throaty laugh came from my […]

The Role: God gave one to Mothers

Saturday, 26 February, 2011

I was challenged to write this by my Dad… When we couldn’t care for ourselves, our mothers cared for us. Before we could walk, she walked with us. Before we could speak, she spoke for us. Our mothers gave that to us. For that reason alone we should show them respect. But for those of […]

My Love Story

Wednesday, 16 February, 2011

Forever The love story of Joseph Daniel Kibler and Charity Fay Beck What is forever? Only God can create it and only God can understand it… He didn’t mean for us to die. He didn’t mean for love to die. If our love story can teach you anything, let it remind you that love is […]

For the empty ones

Thursday, 6 January, 2011

Some of us are choosing to watch life through a window; to gaze without emotion, to view numbly, the lives around us we will never touch. We forget that the God of eternity established time, from everlasting to everlasting, and somewhere in that vast expression of Himself, He remembered each one of us.  Do we […]

What God forgot

Thursday, 2 December, 2010

A small fragment of bread was put into the palm of my hand, and then I was handed a delicate and tiny cup of grape juice… To many of us know what these two objects symbolize without truly remembering… remembering the gushing blood, the flawed flesh, the blinding tears.  And why would we?  A remembrance […]

The violence of our pain and the goodness in His hands

Wednesday, 13 October, 2010

It’s hard to put the words together right now… life is a canvas of colors we can only name.  We can’t influence the strokes or the splats.  We can’t even control the mediem used… but what we can do is release, and rely on the Hands that KNOW the subject He is painting.  We don’t […]
