In The Waiting

Waiting is never easy, yet so much of our lives are spent in waiting seasons. Back in September when I first read “December 7: Kairos, Not Chronos” in Kris Cameally’s new Advent book Come, Lord Jesus, I was in a season of waiting for a month-long creative block to end.

On Making Space

Standing at the sink in the pre-dawn light this morning I caught myself staring at the mulched patch in the back of the yard–all that remains of the old Ash we had chopped down last year. It had stood tall all of the years we lived here, and many before. This house has stood here well…
