Human contact

Human contact

Scenes like this are recreated in my living room all the time. All four of us cram into one small space. Two adults. Two furry friends.   Why?   Why don’t we spread out? Why don’t we use the other seats in the room or other rooms in the house – each one in...

Ever feel like screaming?

Ever feel like screaming?

Sometimes I get so frustrated with technology, email spammers, political telemarketers, crazy drivers, or even family members that I think screaming, or letting them know what I REALLY think, is a great idea!   It’s probably not.   But the temptation is...

Light

Light

Light makes a big difference. Especially in the dark.   Many of the women I work with feel isolated, uncertain of their next step, and afraid of what the future may hold. Life has paused for them in a dark or difficult place.   Like them, the writer of Psalm...
