Big World… Big Wonders

I woke up wondering about death this morning… It’s purpose, meaning and grasp of understanding what it’s all about. Losing a parent brings you to a place of wondering…

As memories flash through my mind and the reality of forever gone comes into play I can’t help but wonder… There’s a void in my mind, a black hole… Empty with no concept of even beginning to process the death of my mother. Reality says… She’s gone, thankfully died peacefully in her sleep. I look at a picture, read an old Christmas card, and I can’t help but wonder how to process life and death.

Daily I move forward at full speed ahead caring for my dad, knowing it will just be a matter of time to process the inevitable…
Embracing every moment with him, thanking God for this time and yet I still wonder…

Life, its meaning, its purpose… Death, its meaning and even its purpose…
We all will experience losses over a lifetime… And then there is the final loss, our own!

I wonder about the sadness in life. Those who are filled with hate, anger, jealousy and rage…
We all certainly feel those emotions on occasion, but for those who live filled with darkness I am saddened for their life. The precious gift we all have been given, the gift of life… We choose how to spend those few precious years here on earth during this lifetime. Somedays are filled with peace and those days when I feel the darkness, I try to step back, breathe and realize the gift that surrounds me… My life!

I have been blessed with incredible Christmas memories left behind by a mother who loved her children… I smile as I write with tears in my eyes knowing there won’t be a traditional “in front of the Christmas tree kiss” this year for my parents… My dad stays stoic with his emotions as the reality of my mothers passing sets in for all of us.

There’s a big world which makes me have big wonders…. Life, death and their purpose…

As the Christmas season is upon us, I am reminded once again of Gods gift, the life and death of his son Jesus. The birth, the life and the death celebrated by believers in the Christian faith…
The ultimate wonderment!

Living life filled with love, awe and wonder….

A Time for Everything…

A Time for Everything
Ecclesiastes (NIV)

3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

What time is it for you?
Just wondering….

Living life filled with
love, awe and wonder

When the Dust Settles…

When the dust settles
What is seen is truth and honor
A life living their truth…
The importance of life?
Truth and Honor…
When the dust settles
The truth will be the foundation,
the beauty of life will be built upon…
For only strength will prevail.
Only the light will shine
And the darkness of evil will be
blinded and extinguished for good..
The truth will be set free
Its Energy will persevere
When the dust settles
the truth will finally be seen…

I Am

A Rewrite from a poem called I Am You
As if Jesus is speaking…
Written by

You hurt
I’ve been there
You celebrate
My joy is complete
You wonder
I know
You feel alone
I know you are not
You get overwhelmed
My burden is light
You count your blessings
My mercies are new every morning
You don’t understand
I understand why
You look for purpose
Seek me first
You feel peaceful
My peace I give to you
You get frustrated with life
I understand completely
You feel sadness
I see the sadnesses
You love others
I am love
You are mine
I am with you always
