Face To Face

Dec 29th, 2011 by debrabee | 2

On a regular basis I come into the presence of unbelief there is a God. People want to see Him face to face; they want proof of His existence. My heart can be both encouraged and broken when I stand before them. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God […]

Cooperation For Integrity

Dec 28th, 2011 by debrabee | 0

The time has come to learn what cooperation is. When I research it, I find the meaning to be working or acting together for a common purpose or benefit. Something stands out however; there is no synonym for its meaning to compromise. Looking at historical references we can learn much. The downfall of nations all […]

Swinging Doors

Dec 26th, 2011 by debrabee | 0

The days pass quickly and people come in and out of the doors we ourselves open for them. I long to change my own doors, removing any locks I may have installed years ago from a wrong sense of protection. I am thinking about the installation of swinging doors that move in both directions. Easy […]

The Nearness Of Moving Beyond

Dec 24th, 2011 by debrabee | 0

Splashing water on my face I was shocked by its cold touch. Lifting my head up, I could see my glassy and bloodshot eyes looking back at me. I was feeling less than stellar with a cold coming on. A dizzy sensation made my legs warble some and I grabbed the counter to steady myself. […]

Freeze Frame

Dec 22nd, 2011 by debrabee | 0

Frame 1 sketch – endless bodies thrown away as trash in a dumping ground Frame 2 sketch – a man emerges from this trash pile I passed through the room while my husband watched a documentary relating to how a sci-fi movie had been conceptualized. In only a couple minutes these images imprinted upon my […]

Forest For The Trees

Dec 20th, 2011 by debrabee | 0

Sometimes I can read things or hear people speak, and sense there to be depth in the words, but I feel a lack in my understanding for why. Regardless, I habitually file them away in my mental vault and wait. One of these sentences I had stored was, “can’t see the forest for the trees”. […]

Hum

Dec 19th, 2011 by debrabee | 0

I hummed while doing what needed to be done. It was nothing mournful despite my hurting heart. A cornucopia played in my head. Comfort wrapped itself around me when I was reminded, “everybody hurts sometimes, so hold on”. I went to the mailbox and a package awaited me. More of His comfort, “Beloved…as a bridegroom […]

Intimacy Pierces Everything

Dec 18th, 2011 by debrabee | 0

In pondering the truth of intimacy I felt a lack of words. What I wasn’t lacking were emotions. I could “feel” lots of things about it. The surprise was not everything I felt was good. I didn’t always seem to be in control for what intimacy was. Intimacy seemed to be piercing everything. My thoughts, […]

Free Reign

Dec 17th, 2011 by debrabee | 0

It has been a long time since I had free reign to open up the throttle on a motorcycle. I can still remember moments of abandonment when I would almost peg 100mph without a helmet. The only reason I ever slowed down was road grit hitting me a bit hard. When I woke up this […]

Empty Pockets

Dec 15th, 2011 by debrabee | 0

I stand at the counter waiting to pay for what I know I’ve spent. My time, my talents, my energy, my love and my words. I empty my pockets and find there is nothing left. The line is long behind me and I realize my embarrassing situation. I can’t pay what I owe. The Clerk […]
