Comin’ for to carry her home

Comin’ for to carry her home

You might have noticed lately that I’ve been neglecting my blog even more than usual.  Here’s why. My elderly mom started in-home hospice care a few weeks ago, here at my sister’s house.  Mom was an artist in her younger days and found beauty everywhere.  Now, her view of the world is limited by what her failing eyes can see…

Can of worms: gender roles and abuse

I might be opening a big can of worms here, but I can’t help myself. I subscribe to Paul Wilkinson’s blog,  “Thinking Out Loud,” because I’m interested in how churches function and how they sometimes become dysfunctional.  Paul posts regularly and intelligently about theology, church, and worship, to name a few of his subjects. Paul has written about a book…

Prayers for Japan

I’d planned to get a ton of work done this morning but now I can’t tear my eyes away from TV coverage of Japan’s quake and tsunami. No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.  If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the…

Artists, Bosch mixers, & homeschool mamas

An excerpt from Cindy Kunsman’s latest blog post:  Every new generation experiences life uniquely, rising to meet new challenges in new ways.  Though the basic responses are not generally unique, each generation strives to make their efforts uniquely their own….  How each generation or group of people solves their problems creates their history, yet because we are imperfect human beings,…

A sneak peek at Sparrows

Not so very long ago, I was still arguing with myself about how to write this crazy novel about extremist homeschoolers and the literature prof who shakes up their lives.  The time for arguing with myself is over.  The story is out of my hands and in the hands of advance readers like Cindy Kunsman.  At her blog, Under Much…

Kudos for “Kisses from Katie”

Kisses from Katie is an amazing blog. Katie Davis moved from Tennessee to Uganda to work with orphans when she was barely out of high school.  She became foster mom and then the official adoptive mom of fourteen orphaned girls, but she lost one of them in a custody battle. Katie must be 21 or 22 now.  She’s still a…

Calling all Jesus freaks

A quotation I just swiped from The Wartburg Watch:  “I’m only here on Earth to serve God. I never had a career.  I don’t care about commercialism.  I have a ministry and I’ll fight for the ministry.”  — Larry Norman Anything from Larry Norman hooks my attention immediately.  He was a major figure in the Jesus Movement, one of the…

The House of Christmas

When Christmas time gets too busy, I have to make time to savor what it’s all about.  From G.K. Chesterton, here are some wild, miraculous, crazy thoughts that never get old, no matter how many times I read them. The House of Christmas by G. K. Chesterton There fared a mother driven forth Out of an inn to roam; In…

Trees on my mind

When we bought this house, one of my favorite finds was the eucalyptus tree in a corner of the yard.  It wasn’t the same kind I grew up with in California, but it was close enough, with a similar spicy scent.  Whenever a few small stems blew down in a storm, I used them in fresh bouquets or dried them. …

Was that a tornado??

Last night, the wind made a racket in the tarp over the gaping hole in our chimney.  It kept me awake for a while and made me realize I’ve become hypersensitive to the sounds of a storm. Last Tuesday afternoon, three out of four of us were here.  Our younger son wasn’t home.  Jon was in the back yard, our…
