An Open Door

An Open Door

This space has been sitting quietly for awhile…like a guest bedroom.  The door would open every now  and then long enough to  update the pictures on the wall,  dust off a few things here and there, and check to see if any mail had arrived .  Too much of life in between  tends to close some doors until further notice.

Life is like that …seasons.   The decor color changes from bright sunny beaches of summer to rust-colored fall …to deep reds of winter and lilac-colored spring .  We breathe in the smells of each season and warm our hearts by the light of the sun or beside crackling fires in winter’s chill.

This is now.  Whatever season it is, this is where we are.  There are joys & sorrows, frustrations & happiness, fears & excitement,  coming & going,  gaining & losing.  For today– we will rest in God’s presence … finding our joy in Him. He really is enough.




















*Psalm 16:6 (New International Version)

My kids tease me sometimes that my definition of a situation going well is often described as, "It was 'life-giving' " -- meaning, it may have had some conflicts or uneasy moments or stress but all in all , something about it breathed life into the situation and the people involved...something of the heart was moved in a good direction. I'm all about LIFE ... life with my husband, life with 4 adult children, their spouses and 8 grandchildren (to date, that is :), life in our home and life in a wild adventure we tend to label "ministry". In reality , all of these categories mesh together to make up the "organic me". Relational , redeeming and restoring are some of my favorite words and they give life to my soul as I walk it all out with Jesus Christ, the Giver of all life. Profile Photo by: Melody Martin
