In Between

In between.  Neither here nor there.  State of transition.  All apt descriptions for what many people experienced this week throughout the Midsouth as ice and snow disrupted plans, rearranged schedules, closed schools, businesses, and churches alike.  Prepared for one type of week, we found ourselves living a different type of week. In between.  Neither here […]

How do you handle it?

You are on a roll.  Focused and in the zone, you tackle your to do list, your next big project, a new schedule for quiet time, that thing which has been calling your name.  Then it happens.  Resistance.  Uncertainty.  Frustration.  According to author Steven Pressfield (The War of Art and Do the Work!) any act […]

Vanguards and Cow Catchers

In the days of wide open spaces and wilderness, traveling by rail could be a dangerous business.  I’m not talking about danger brought about by humans, but by any number  of animals that could just happen to be ambling across the tracks at the precise time that a locomotive was scheduled.  Enter British engineer Charles […]

Where’s your field?

God’s Multiplication Table

There it is!  In the midst of a conversation with friend, a word of confirmation.  You hear the same words, phrase, or picture that you have experienced in your quiet time with the Lord.  You hear it, not quite believing God is confirming that BIG thing He has asked of you. Your heart starts pumping, […]

What’s Your P.O.V.?

I love to watch shows like Food Network Star or Design Star.  It”s not the competition that delights me.  It is watching talented individuals face the challenges of fitting their own style and voice into whatever the assignment is.  Whether it is a tasty morsel for a pool party for 100 or the white room […]

When God Reminds You…

I have recently moved my studio from a retail space to my home.  In doing so I have sifted files and paperwork and came across a file of testimonies that I have saved.  This is a blog post written in early 2008.  It is a great post as well as a current testimony of what […]

New Territory

“Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, and from your relatives and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you.”  Genesis 12:1 A new year spreads out before us. Stepping into a new year means stepping out of the old year.  Stepping into a new chapter requires […]

Rebirth

“Behold, the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.”  Isaiah 42:9 Entering a new season can be intimidating.  We look ahead and nothing seems in focus.  We catch a glimpse of the future like a sunbeam that plays hide and seek across […]
