Dealing with Travel Anxiety

 March 21, 2019

Do you suffer from travel anxiety? I suspect it is more common than I first thought. As I sat on my flight from LA to Detroit, I noticed a number of fellow travelers ordering drinks, two at a time. That’s one way of dealing with travel anxiety. Not how I handle travel anxiety, though. I’m […]

Psalm 64: Fear – Friend or Foe?

 March 19, 2019

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Famous words from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s inaugural speech. However, Roosevelt wasn’t the first person aware of this. Thoreau is quoted as saying, “Nothing is so much to be feared as fear.” The writer of Psalm 64 also knows something of this concept. Psalm 64 After […]

When God Says, Slow Down!

 March 14, 2019

What do you do when God says, slow down? Do you argue? “But I’m too busy doing your work to slow down. How could you ask me to do this?” Do you bargain? “I’ll slow down as soon as I finish this project or this event.” Of course, there will always be another project or […]

Psalm 63:  Thirsting for that Which Truly Satisfies

 March 12, 2019

When I’m thirsty, nothing quenches my thirst like a glass of cold water. It’s what my body needs and longs for. I may enjoy a good cup of coffee or glass of wine, but nothing is quite like water. It is necessary for life, just as God is necessary for life. Psalm 63 reminds us […]

Travelling with a Toddler – Melbourne

 March 8, 2019

Australia was not on my bucket list for travel. There are so many places I’ve yet to see. When my husband would bring up the subject I was like—too far! Why travel there? But when my daughter was transferred to Melbourne and needed help moving, of course I came. So now I have experienced travelling […]

Psalm 62:  How Do You Find Rest?

 March 5, 2019

Work is important, but so is rest from labor. Psalm 62 is one of a group of seven psalms that focus on trust and confidence in God: 4, 11, 16, 23, 27, 62, 131. It is a welcome respite from the laments we’ve been reading. We need rest from lamenting, moving from lament to trust! […]

Psalm 61: Through Lament to Trust

 February 26, 2019

February is the shortest month of the year and yet it feels like it never ends. I’m tired of ice and snow and cold. I’m longing for warmer weather and an escape from winter. In the same way, I’m tired of all of these psalms of lament, one after another. Will it ever let up? […]

The Joy in Doing One Thing at a Time

 February 20, 2019

Something strange has happened over the last few weeks. Perhaps it was the winter cold and snow, turning my blood into slow-flowing molasses in my veins. (Think of it as playing a 78rpm record at 33rpms for those of you old enough to remember what this is.) Perhaps it just because I’m growing older. Or […]

Psalm 60: Playing the Blame Game

 February 19, 2019

There is something about human nature that relishes casting blame on others. Once my children were gone I had no one to fault but myself when I misplaced items or the house was in disarray. How convenient to now have a husband to accuse when I can’t find my car keys or sunglasses or if […]

A Lesson from the Ostrich – Job 38:17

 February 13, 2019

Each Monday morning I spend an hour in quiet contemplation at the adoration chapel at St. Joseph church. I love this time. Time to just sit with God and see what God has in store for me. I usually read the psalm that I am blogging about that week. Little did I expect to learn […]
