Longing for Purpose

Longing for Purpose

I usually love the light bulb moment when some random pondering is suddenly illuminated with understanding.  Not so much this week.  This week, the clarity was painful to see at first.  I am on this new journey of becoming a more legit artist and writer.  I shared the fears and insecurities that have bubbled up in the blog post   https://artistictherapy.net/blogs/news/here-goes-nothing.  I dream of the things I share growing.  I love to picture it spreading, like a ripple effect.  Stones have always been a huge part of my life. The idea of my stone causing a ripple effect just makes...

Experiencing Wonder...Part Two

Experiencing Wonder...Part Two

On Friday, we experienced the wonder of Victoria Falls from the half cracked window of a moving van, speeding towards what we thought was the plan...then more slowly, with selfies when we pitifully drug our luggage back across the border, feeling the shock of plans denied.   On Saturday, our group decided that our best option was to settle into a life in Zambia until the United States could come pick us up. With that, we decided to go explore this natural wonder in depth before heading back to Lusaka. We started with a hike to the top of the...

Experiencing Wonder....Part One

Experiencing Wonder....Part One

Today was supposed to be a magical day, exploring Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.  We couldn’t wait to be amazed by God’s powerful creation.   When I told my mom I was going, she smiled sweetly and told me that my grandmother, MaCile had always dreamed of seeing Victoria Falls. I never knew that.  She and my Papa Phillips had always planned to take each of their grandchildren on a special trip, to imbed in us a love of travel. When he died unexpectedly at 55, that dream had to be tweaked. She took...

The Call

The Call

This morning at church, as we sang “Way Maker”, I found myself just begging God for David. You see, my father-in-law has pulmonary fibrosis. And his only hope is a lung transplant. I shared the story here. https://artistictherapy.net/blogs/news/to-the-man-who-will-give-my-husbands-daddy-his-lungs   I found myself begging God to make a way for his lungs to be healed. It had been a while since I had been that overcome praying over it. Praying for his donor. Begging the Lord that today would be his salvation day. That he would take care of whatever business was unsettled. Begging the Lord to move. Reminding Him He...

My daddy almost died this week...Instead, we all got to see Jesus

My daddy almost died this week...Instead, we all got to see Jesus

"Lord, I believe you are the God who performs miracles, the God who heals, the God who does HUGE things....I really want to see it...."  I've been praying prayers like that for a couple of years now.  Desperately trying to believe it--But I tend to fall in the same vein as Mark 9:24 "I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief".  The concept of healing and miracles has been one I have wrestled through with Jesus for 7 years now.  I have asked for things--good sounding things.  I have really believed.  But when time and time again, nothing changed, I...
