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 […]

Psalm 59: God’s Laughter

 February 12, 2019

Yet another lament.  Enough already! Like Michigan winters, they just go on and on. I look for relief and see weeks of snow, freezing temperatures and freezing rain in the forecast. I look for words of quiet and repose, yet I get words of sorrow and anger with little end in sight, including this week’s […]

Psalm 58 – Vengeance is Mine, Says Me!

 February 5, 2019

You’ve heard the saying, vengeance is mine, says the Lord. If I had my way, it would be, says me, or at least I would like to dictate the shape this vengeance might take, like the writer of Psalm 58. Psalm 58 – Images The writer calls for vengeance. In his defense, he is not […]

Psalm 57: Under God’s Wings

 January 30, 2019

Right now, hiding under God’s wings and staying there until spring sounds like a great idea. The bitter cold and snow we are experiencing in the Midwest puts me into hibernation mode. I’m craving carbs to put on layers of fat to keep me warm! Not a good place to be. Under God’s wings, however, […]

Psalm 56: God, the Tear Catcher

 January 22, 2019

God, the tear catcher! Another image of God from Scripture. There are many images of God found in the Bible, including father, mother, spirit, way, truth, light, gate, gatekeeper, lion, eagle, mother hen, shepherd. The list goes on. Now, thanks to Psalm 56, I have another image for God, the tear catcher. Psalm 56 Psalm […]
