    Grace Upon Grace ~ A Marriage InterVIEW With Mike & Meagan

    September 6, 2017

    Some people have anniversary dates for everything!  First date, first kiss, first …. you name it!  Meanwhile, where did I put our wedding album?  Was it the 6th or the 7th that we tied the knot? …  Oh, the shame.  You’d think after 20 years, I’d have it down by now.   I know couples […]

    Quiet Invitation

    August 13, 2017

    Quiet places rarely happen.  Having a quiet mind and stillness of body is rare these days.  From the moment our feet touch the floor we invade a noisy space of accomplished tasks.  Our minds begin an hourly journey of sorting and analyzing.   Quiet is rare.   Stepping outside, my bare feet are welcomed by […]
