I had the privilege of having a five year old girl put her hand upon my shoulder and pray for me this afternoon. Honestly, these are my favorite prayers! I understand what they are speaking is coming right out of the purity of their heart. Inwardly I was beaming with delight as I listened to […]

Eyes On The Moon

Mar 29th, 2010 by debrabee | 0

I left a large group of people where I longed to stay, but my pumpkin hour was approaching. My husband walked with me and I stopped, asking him to look upwards. The moon was bright over this city, over this home, and there was a ring about it. I wondered at this crown and surmised […]

Mar 27th, 2010 by debrabee | 0

“even though I’m in love sometimes I get so afraid I’ll say something so wrong just to have something to say” * I am deep into my marriage with my husband, and I understand these words for truth in the many ways I have responded without wisdom. More truthful still, are those words I speak […]

White Rain

Mar 22nd, 2010 by debrabee | 0

Over a week ago heavy rain poured and I became lost in it’s saturation as I drove home. The traffic was slow because of it but I didn’t mind being held up. It gave me time to be still and be quiet. I wondered at the blessing of having so much water fill our reservoirs […]

We were on our way out of town for the evening when I had asked my husband for a caffeine connection. He stopped at a cafĂ© we knew while I stayed in the car to read for a few minutes. He came back to tell me it was closed and I was so immersed in […]

It’s Going To Be An Amazing Year

Mar 19th, 2010 by debrabee | 0

It was mid-seventies and the sun was gorgeous. I was stuck in a car line and the breeze picked up. Suddenly the white blooms began to snow in force. I couldn’t be bothered to roll up my window to keep out spring’s promises. I reached over to turn up the song and then leaned back […]

Kryptonite

Mar 18th, 2010 by debrabee | 0

His name was Samson and he was our first “superman”; also the only one of truth. All other fantasy characters we make up are derivatives of this supernatural man whose strength was incomparable.

We prayed for her daughter who was dying of cancer. I had faith and my friend had desperation to hope in these prayers. She lost her daughter to this disease almost six months later despite all possible treatment options. During this time my friend stopped me in the hall one day to ask if the […]
