Letters to the Lord: It’s a Wonderful Christmas

Bonjour, dear ones, from Atlanta! I’m jetlagged and a bit heartbroken as I’m here with my precious father who has pancreatic cancer. So grateful to be able to be back with him after our 7 weeks in France.

Letters to the Lord: Savor

As we are packing to return to the States for at least four months, my mind is a blur of emotions. Such a short time in France, yet so rich.

Letters to the Lord: Why Are You Thinking These Things?

As we were coming to the end of our mandatory month off from Member Care, I listened to this podcast about spending a day alone with God.

Letters to the Lord: Taking Time Off

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

Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it’s good for … Read More Letters to the Lord: Overshadowed
