You were Born to be Free

This is Day 1 of the Wild Kids, Wild God – 31 Days looking at God’s Heart Series.
Check the Introduction to the series here.


You were born to be free…from the moment you were growing in your mother’s womb*

Everyone on earth carries the mark of their freedom: a bellybutton. Cuddly name for something so symbolic of Life significance…

You were made for more….

Life like Contractions

Things are going well. You got some sleep, had a moment to shower and are about to start the day. Then it begins…..pressures piling up, minute by minute, moment by moment.

The kids are yelling and whining- each about something different, the baby is crying upstairs for milk, your husband is in bed sick, quick–take a deep breath before you lose it!.. Continue reading “Life like Contractions”

Cinderella: A note on Humility, Entitlement and Kindness

Cinderella had it rough. Grief from losing her mom, a step-mother who treated her like a slave, and a steady stream of insults from snobbish step-sisters. Hard knocks life, with a “happily ever after.”

But what if she knew how her story would end? Continue reading “Cinderella: A note on Humility, Entitlement and Kindness”

Makes no sense…Strawberry Tops

I’ve eaten strawberries my whole life and always thought the green tops were just that: green tops.

But upon closer inspection I found pattern and symmetry: triangular, pointed leaves in Star-formation, interspersed with oval strips.  Continue reading “Makes no sense…Strawberry Tops”

Rainbows are actually Full Circles!

Apparently, when seen from above, rainbows are actually CIRCLES! Considering rainbows are noted as symbolizing the promise of God never to wipe out the earth with water again, it seems appropriate that it be a circle, like a ring: never-ending and unbroken, like promises are supposed to be… Continue reading “Rainbows are actually Full Circles!”
