HELP ! What Do I Do? I See You.

I understand the Bible. I understand the inspired, Spirit filled Word of God. However. in the midst of it all. Watching a particular episode strikes a chord. “There is no hope.” I wonder. For 2 Generations of PeterPan believers. What does God Really  say? What does God mean? A Life Time Movie? I think not. Two Women I love, respect. Adore. Expressing heart-felt hurt, … Continue reading HELP ! What Do I Do? I See You.


The Year of The Parallel Space-Charges Dropped

This was first published in a little side note Easter, 2013. Now Holy Week 2016. God is in the BIG business of Full Circle. Can I get a Witness?


She laid there in the dark unable to move. Trying to think, to listen for what might have awakened her. Had she slept? Unable to move for the story playing out before her.

Why had she ever begun this journey? In the few years since she had pressed into  “Yes” , things continually happened.

Now this. Holy Week. 1999.

It had never really meant much more than Easter (usually champagne) Brunch and colored eggs for the nephews . Now that they had two Littles of their own it meant a big change in her Life. The little SBC church around the corner had started it all. Now the bigger church where she had been years ago briefly, to be married and He had called them back~full circle. New Pastor, of course, new Life, new level of commitment for her young sons and her.


She had never heard the story as told this season. Passion. The Greatest Story…

The man Barabbas in the dungeon, awaiting his judgement. Suddenly, from just outside, the crowd erupts shouting his name “Barabbas! Barabbas!” Just as suddenly, Silence. Then “Crucify him!”

Can you imagine? In those moments did his heart almost stop? Did he begin to be sorry for his wasted life? Did he bargain with God? Her heart pounded in unison with his.

She saw his cell swung open- he tense- prepared for fight? For flight?  Then realizing he was being released in exchange for an innocent man. Charges dropped. What about his bargain with God? she wondered. Did he even think of it again? Continue reading “The Year of The Parallel Space-Charges Dropped”
