The Angels Will Dance


“We can all be angels to one another. We can choose to obey the still small stirring within, the little whisper that says, ‘Go. Ask. Reach out. Be an answer to someone’s plea. You have a part to play. Have faith.’ We can decide to risk that He is indeed there, watching, caring, cherishing us as we love and accept love. The world will be a better place for it. And wherever they are, the angels will dance.”

What Christmas is all About


Linus Van Pelt:“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not:”
“for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'”[Linus picks up his blanket and walks back towards Charlie Brown] That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

REBLOG: Don’t miss Mitch’s Lovely post.

Advent, the season leading up to Christmas, is the root of the word “adventure.” It means to finally arrive after a long journey. It is about Christ’s arrival. And ours. “One of the essential paradoxes of Advent: that while we wait for God, we are with God all along, that while we need to be […]

I have a friend who went through a pretty rough decade. She lost a son by suicide, her husband after twenty-five years and her godly father passed. I remember calling her when her father was failing and I asked her how she was doing. She said she was hanging on. Then she said two words that have stuck with me…this 24. She explained to me that she only had to live this 24 hours. She held on to her faith through everything she was going through one day at a time. When she was deep in the valleys, she held on to God’s hand moment by moment, hour by hour and day by day.

I took her advice to heart. When I walked through valleys, I reminded myself of her words…this 24. I then tried to push back the angst about tomorrow and…

Under the Stars




The twinkling stars 
shine down on you. 

Do you have a favorite 
you wish upon too? 

Mine is that little one,
I think it might be flawed. 
 
It's the one I watch
when I talk to God.  

My wish for you
on this cool, clear night

That you're showered with 
love and God's guiding light.
 
No matter where you 
roam in this big
world of ours

You'll always be 
under my same 
set of stars.

*I don't often write rhyming poetry. But the first two 
verses of this one came to me and rhymed so beautifully that I

The Shell


There was a crack in the shell 
that I had built 
around myself 

It's a funny thing

the bad things out,  
they also keep 
the good things out

I could no longer 
stand on my own 

So I fell to my knees
