My Journey

Better than a text?

It happened again yesterday. An emotional click.   A kid plopped a stack of mail on the counter - and something jumped out at me. Not a bold advertisement - not a dreaded bill - not newsy flyer - but my own name hand-written in a hasty scrawl on bright envelope with a...

Sage Sayings #4

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day: St Patrick's Breastplate. Lyrical language, stirring images - all grounded in rich theology. St. Patrick's Breastplate  (attributed to St. Patrick of Ireland - 5th century) I bind unto myself today The strong Name of the Trinity, By...

Prayer ends with a period.

Prayer.  by George MacDonald    We doubt the word that tells us: Ask,  And ye shall have your prayer;  We turn our thoughts as to a task,  With will constrained and rare.   And yet we have; these scanty prayers  Yield gold without alloy:  O God, but he that...

Sage Sayings #3

Today’s Sage Saying - short, sweet, solid. It describes why I savor quotations. They connect my common life with those of others who have been this way before me...   Great thoughts go best with common duties. - Brooke Foss Westcott (1825)     If you'd like to make...

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...
