Unraveling at the Seams

The tickle on my leg soon became a great irritation. I continued what I was doing, but often reaching down to brush, scratch or grab whatever was tickling me. I never slowed long enough to see what it was, but it felt like a hair or a spider web that surely could be brushed away. The last determined swipe finally grasped a now two foot long string. The beautiful lace trim drooped to my ankles, and there I stood about twenty minutes into unraveling my new gown. Now I had a bigger irritation, an unraveling gown and no sewing machine to stitch it. Months later it lies rolled up and shoved to the back of the shelf. The annoying thread could easily have been tied off, irritant gone and gown intac

Tin Punched Life

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 I was fascinated with the tin-punched candle holder.

I sat frozen in the moment. What powerful words of faith! Around another table, one discerned that something was happening and she

He's In The Waiting

“Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.” Ps. 27:14 I sat in the courtroom with a friend today asking God to give me alertness to what was going on in the spirit realm and to teach me His lessons. The day had finally arrived for her to go before the judge in a long drawn out case. After several years of trying to get before a judge, it was finally happening today. There she sat at the front table beside her attorney with all the players in place. Deep breath. Sigh. Gratitude. Ready! Set! Go! But suddenly there was a pause. The pause quickly turned to a delay that sat perched in the atmosphere. “Not enough time to hear the case today. “ What? Wh
