FMF: Release

Release When I ponder the word release today my thoughts go right to my parents and their garden.  It’s a fairly small plot of land, but for six years they’ve planted and tended and reaped a great harvest of vegetables.  All of us who live nearby have benefited too from their garden as they have … More FMF: Release

He didn’t settle

There’s a multitude of “rock and a hard place” scenarios my mind could ponder.  Sometimes the outcome doesn’t seem quite as assuredly joyous as the birth of a baby.  The rocky place of unemployment and serious health concerns in which we currently find ourselves offers decidedly daunting outcomes.  None of the options are appealing right now, and there’s a temptation to throw hands in the air and just settle. … More He didn’t settle
