The Lake of Life

The Lake of Life

My husband’s family owns a cabin up north.  It’s nothing spectacular or fancy, but just a very simple structure that sits up high on a grassy hill, overlooking a lovely lake. From the wrap-around deck, you can relax and nestle into a comfy chair, sipping your tea, while busy little hummingbirds flit about you, sipping […]

Waiting for the Rest

Waiting for the Rest

As a child, growing up in Southwest Iowa, I spent a lot of time outside amidst the beautiful butterflies, the fuzzy yellow jacket bees, and the bright dragon flies that hovered and buzzed over the lush green grass and flowers that grew outside the patio door. In our big kitchen with the windows facing the […]

Making Time for Solitude

Making Time for Solitude

  I consider myself a people person. I love to engage in conversations, work collaboratively on projects, and hang out with family and friends. I like to be busy. My calendar is full of commitments. I would guess that I am not alone in this lifestyle. Maybe you see yourself in those statements. However, people […]

Six Soul Cleaning Steps

Six Soul Cleaning Steps

Soul Cleaning is a much-needed attempt to clear out your heart and mind and get you in a better place to walk away refreshed and restored. In scripture, we will often read the cries of a distressed heart from King David.  After David has been in sin, he cries out to God and says … […]

What Do You Value Most

What Do You Value Most

    As I sit at my desk looking out at the dark dreary day, I ponder this one question:  What do I value most? Friend, I wish I could sit down with you and person after person, and listen to each and everyone’s deep down heart- answer. Some answers would be football and basketball.  […]

Along the Way

  I see life as a journey.  An adventure.  A road. Along the road I’ve been traveling, there have been people. This past week I’ve met them, stopped to rest and chat, have listened, have observed, have learned and have pondered. The journey emits facets like a beautiful piece of crystal, brought out into the […]

Shelter From the Storm

By: Kathy A. Weckwerth Psalm 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Last night was a service at the Church in the Grove.  Each month during the months of April-December, we host a Saturday night at 6, for something fun, encouraging, and community-minded.  But the weather last night was, as […]

The Path

The Path

I could hear them, but I couldn’t see them.  The sound was lovely, as I heard the birds chattering high up amidst the trees in the front yard.  I was making my journey along the path I’ve worn from my house to the old church.  Day in and day out, I find myself traveling this path.  It’s […]

Sunflowers and the Wait

Sunflowers and the Wait

I’m a city girl.  My husband reminds me.  My friends remind me.  I remind myself.  I don’t always know about plants and gardens … or even flowers.  But I think I have something figured out now.  I found out that sunflowers follow the sun.  I’m sure you knew that, right?  I have never paid attention.  […]

What To Do?

What To Do?

This week I had three friends call for help.  “Can you pray?  What do you think I should do?  Am I losing it?” were some of the questions I was answering.  Some of those problems involved job changes, a family relationship and illness.  They were not easy questions, and I felt a heavy weight for […]
