How To Fall in Love With God

The farm boys stand at the brink of The Falls and watch the slabs of ice slip over.

“Remember Paddle-to-the-Sea , Mom?” Caleb asks me over the water thunder.

Malakai and Levi are peeking through the ice swirl of the wrought iron railing to watch what happens at the edge of the world.

Caleb’s smiling. “Can you imagine, Mom?”

I shake my head.  The chunks of ice keep giving way.

This maybe the living…








The way to fall in love with God is to surrender to the fall.

Jessica and Angie, the delightful hostesses of the Bloom Book Club (aren’t they wonderful?), have asked me to post over the weekend at the Bloom Book Club page, a bit of an introduction to their book club pick One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are…  It’s the happiest blessing that we’re doing this all together! It’d be a joy to meet you over there this weekend! And that crazy rocket ride you folks took the book on yesterday at Amazon?… I’m going to figure out how to send bookmarks to you wildly gracious folks who are being such companions with me on this journey, if anyone would like a few? More soon this weekend… as we surrender to falling in love with Him.
