There's somethingIn the air tonightMy thoughts are lostSomewhere, mid-flightAnd I can't help myself,It's likeMy thoughts are on their own.The tremble of a restless seaTumbles ashore inside of meMy heart resoundsRelentlesslyI'm all alone tonightTurned the pillowTo the cold sideI wonder if you do this tooThere are so many thingsI'd like to know.Do you wake up every… Continue reading Home

In the Valleys

I sat and watched the sky And the prairie running wild Up to the mountains. I watched the blues and reds Scatter colors overhead - Night fell around me. And suddenly a whisper Came from somewhere Deep inside: I'm walking here beside you I hold every tear you've cried, Just look around - see: Some… Continue reading In the Valleys

Maybe It’s Time to Change Your Filter

Good evening from North Texas. I just had dinner with my two youngest kids (ages 18 and 11) at the city's square. It's an amazing place where the locals gather to relax and unwind. Right now my current view is my backyard. It's 79 degrees on a Texas night in July. Rare. I'm sitting out… Continue reading Maybe It’s Time to Change Your Filter

...and she said I still think I might have Liked to have a try But this is really best - Not being perfect all the time And when I Close my eyes I can Still look up and See his face He's just something I can't erase.

Wait Lifting #6: What Are You Waiting For?

Fireworks are exploding over my North Texas town right now. This is one of my favorite holidays, but I skipped it this year. Oh, I had to work some, but the real work I did was on my heart. I let it heal. Sometimes it takes a long moment. My long moment lasted 8 years.… Continue reading Wait Lifting #6: What Are You Waiting For?

You can be quiet

The sun slowed down and Took one last look over the horizon. It had had a long productive day and Could finally meander on to The other side. Meander. That's what my car did - Steady and slow like the sun. "I've been... feeling really quiet." My text whispered through the screen as I Wiped… Continue reading You can be quiet

Lookin’ For Love

My mind wandered this morning to John 4 and the woman Jesus spoke with at the well. I'm often reminded of her when I mentor single moms. Why had she come to this well to draw water alone? That was an activity the women did together. For safety. For social interaction. I'll guess why: shame.… Continue reading Lookin’ For Love

One heart. Many faces.

I made a huge mistake at work today. To be fair, it's my first week of actually doing my job and I'm still onboarding. But the impact of this was far-reaching. I control 2 email inboxes from the same email account. One is my personal company email. The other is my team's email. I was… Continue reading One heart. Many faces.

The In-Between

On the margin of day When the sun slides sleepily Off the page, I sit awake, hold my pillow, And sigh. Where daylight dwindles and Tree-shadows grow long, So do my thoughts. They yawn and stretch and Thoughts that got lost amidst the Busy clutter of a long day's work Now saunter back, Sit cross-legged… Continue reading The In-Between
