30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 29 Grace for the Moment

This morning as I walked around the high school, the students were in the process of changing classes.  I passed 4 boys in black t-shirts using every expletive in their vocabulary to discuss what they would be wearing for Halloween this year.  A few moments later I passed 2 students behind a bush opposite the […]

After 48 hours of red, watery eyes, runny nose, interrupted sleep, and general fussiness…Evelyn finally cut her 8th tooth today.  We’re both still recovering, but today there was marked improvement.  So for the last three days I haven’t walked in the morning.  Today I walked mid-afternoon when Brad could be on-call during nap-time.  It was […]

Today as I walked, I had “Father Abraham” stuck in my head: “Father Abraham had many sons.  Many sons had Father Abraham.  I am one of them, and so are you.  So let’s all praise the Lord!”  I hope none of you has the impression that I am a super-spiritual saint, or a prayer expert.  […]

Evelyn kept me up last night as she struggled with a head cold.  She needed more attention than usual today, so I didn’t get out for my walk until the sun was setting.  Brad encouraged me to go ahead and get out anyway, even though it was late.  The pink and orange sunset over the […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 24 Insecure, Foolish, & Undignified

I am a very insecure person at times…especially among other women my age.  It’s easy to spot any other woman who has better hair, better make-up, nicer clothes, cooks better, hosts better, exercises more, is more creative, is more entrepreneurial, has better behaved children, yells less, laughs more, has a better house, is more generous, […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 20 From the Depths of Woe

One of my favorite hymns is Psalm 130, written by Martin Luther: From depths of woe I raise to Thee The voice of lamentation; Lord, turn a gracious ear to me And hear my supplication; If Thou iniquities dost mark, Our secret sins and misdeeds dark, O who shall stand before Thee? This morning as […]
