Sage Sayings #2

Today’s Sage Saying is perhaps my favorite extra-biblical quote. It’s from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith.   “Look at everything always as though you were seeing it for the first or last time: Thus is your time on earth filled with glory.” - Betty Smith  ...

The Shepherd – For the Joy

As I read the Bible, I’m continually searching for what God does and what I’m to do. Ezekiel provides a clear picture of the contrast.  “For thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock...

Sage Sayings

I collect old quotations. Wise words left by sages. Why do I gather up words written decades or even centuries ago - like fragments of bread and fish in a basket? Because sometimes they confirm my own thoughts, sometimes they shake my thinking, sometimes they stir my...

A Motivated Praying Mommy Shares Her Simple Plan

This post is by a guest blogger and a new Prayer PathWay user - my niece: Andrea Lindy Westlund. She is a busy young woman with two children and two full time jobs (one of which is outside the home - the other is 24/7!).  * * * * * * * As I'm growing older I've...

An interview about Prayer PathWay

Recently, I did an interview with the guys at These Go to 11 podcast. It's a teeny bit about me - some about the origins of Prayer PathWay - and most about prayer rhythms.  I forgot to ask what their name means because I was focusing on not talking too fast! Or saying...

A Tarnished New Year

We’re just barely into this new year but, perhaps, it’s already tarnished. Perhaps what felt like a new start, a fresh thing, a bold beginning when the fireworks were flaring has sputtered out with old worries, fresh stresses, and murky fears. Or maybe it’s just the...

An old New Year’s Poem

IT'S HERE: 2017 - an untried year! I know little about what is ahead but I know this much: We are hemmed in! His hand is on us. "You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways…You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me”...

A last minute (but timeless) gift for YOU

Last minute gift cards FROM me to you!   I know you’re busy. It IS the eve of Christmas Eve, after all! I just have this to say: consider PRAYER as a gift for your dear ones. A year of prayer. It’s easy to commit to pray - but sometimes it’s hard to remember. So here...
