If you’re on social media, some of this may be familiar, but it has … Read More The Last Eight Months
Dear, dear Lord, I cannot process this truth, but here it is: Forty years ago I stepped onto the campus of International Crusades to begin my short-term mission’s experience in France. Short term, Lord. Three years. And here I am, forty years later, still experiencing ministry in France. I call that GRACE. Amazing grace, Lord. You called me, really intercepted my life, flipped me … Read More Letters to the Lord: Forty Years

One of the great joys for an author, at least for this author, is meeting my readers in person. I have had the privilege over the past twenty-five years of signing books in bookstores across the Southeast and many other states as well in France, Germany, The Netherlands, and Norway. I’ve also been in churches , conferences, the den of a book club gathering, … Read More Letters to the Lord: Signing My Life Away
Dear Friends, Chers Amis, I had planned to send this out earlier, but the month of January 2022 has been one of the hardest in our lives. My father, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July, 2021, took a turn for the worse a few weeks ago. At the same time, our 5th grandchild, Cori Lucille Musser, was born. She is perfect but … Read More Happy New Year! Bonne Année!
At the beginning of each new year, I have done a yearly Examen (links at the end of this post)–it’s an ancient practice that involves looking back and looking forward, asking myself questions like: where have I seen God at work in my life? When did I feel his absence? What were the highs of last year? What were the lows? What can I … Read More Letters to the Lord: When the Lord Intercepted My Life

It’s the question we are used to being asked at this time of year: What are you thankful for? And I imagine we all can cite numerous people/experiences/possessions we are thankful for, especially after coming through two really difficult years globally and perhaps personally. My heart is full of gratitude that my two jobs allow me so much flexibility between two continents and countries … Read More Letters to the Lord: Thankful
We’re home in France! I am sitting in the chaise lounge behind the house, drinking a cup of chai tea from my favorite mug bought in Aigues-Mortes two summers ago, with my Bible and prayer list and freshly cut ‘belles de nuit’ sitting on the little wrought iron table beside me. This is My. Place. With. You. Lord. Being alone with You in our … Read More Letters to the Lord: Taking Time Off

I had the rare privilege joy of spending a few … Read More Letters to the Lord: Reflections on a Life Well Lived
