In His hands, we are safe and all’s well

It’s Sunday morning. It’s worship time, and Pastor Cummings is leading. The lights go down, and the music begins. His Spirit is here, and we know it… He’s chosen to join us today. “I think I wanna come with you for third service.” That’s what he said on his way to Sunday School, so Daddy, he’s […]

“…and that’s what he’ll be doing for an entire 11 months.” We’re standing together, we six, at a relative’s wake, talking to family members. Explaining the journey, describing his route.

Breathe in, breathe out, grace enough

September 3, 2015 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Sun’s fingers are just touching the leaves. I sip morning coffee and reach for daily Bread. And it comes, holy rain that moistens dry, dry bones. “It is enough.
