Our sense of possibility

I was talking to someone about my college years yesterday. We were reminiscing about what we remembered, how we felt and what we missed. I was telling her about time a few years back when I went back to my old college town for a short visit....more

Lost In A Dream

(originally posted @ My Really Real Reality) When I first woke up this morning, a phrase was in my head.  Like a message from a dream.  In those first moments it was clear, and in that hazy half awake stage it had great meaning.  I tried to hold onto it.  But like all dreams, the more awake I became - the more distant it seemed.  Until it was gone.  I can still feel it there.  Just on the fringes of my waking mind.   But I can't s...more

Mom Dreams

I don't sleep too great at night now that I'm post-menopausal.  And, when I do sleep, I'm not a big 'dreamer'.  At least not dreams that I remember.  I read somewhere that we actually dream pretty much every night, but we just don't remember them all.  Perhaps there's mercy in that somehow.The dreams that I do remember the next morning are almost always about my children, my two sons.  I think most moms can relate to that -- our kids are just always in our heart, mind, thoughts, and dreams.  But, here's the interesting thing I'm finding.....My&n...more

Too Pretty (For My Mom)

My mom was a dear, sweet lady.  Loving, yet quiet and reserved – a lot like me (yeah, right).  She held deep religious beliefs and lived by those her whole life.  My mom always encouraged me and let me know that she valued and loved me.  That’s not to say that we didn’t have some awful times – ah, the teenage years – but I always knew my mom loved me and I loved her.  My mom was not much of a disciplinarian; that was left to my dad and, actually, to my grandmother who cared for me as my mom was one of the few moms working outside the home back in the 60’...more

Are you a World Changer?

I attended a conference recently and the speaker explained how each of us is created for a special task.  Just as we have our own unique fingerprint, we are called to leave our own unique print on the world and mankind.  Over a year ago I wrestled with the Lord throughout the night unable to sleep at all with His constant admonition, “Heather, you are a World Changer.”  Being a World Changer sounded like such a huge and daunting feat.  I was so intimidated.  I begged the Lord to choose someone else.  Since that time, my understanding has changed and the call is...more
