Sojourner (n.)- a person who resides temporarily in a place.Yep, that’s me! My job has kept me on the move through the years. For more than a decade my husband and I were based in Asia, but these days my haven and jumping-off point is in the state of Indiana, USA. I’m a Jesus-follower, which would make me a sojourner anyway, right? After all, Peter calls us “sojourners and exiles.”My other monikers include wife, mom, grandmother (“Grammie” if you please!), writer, lover of beauty, bird-watcher, and teacher.Thanks for joining me on my journey!
“…You are dearly loved! I urge you from within this place of our joint oneness to remain like sojourners and strangers to the subtleties of a world-system that is foreign to your design. Avoid any influence that does not resonate with your innocence.”
— I Peter 2:11 (MIRROR TRANSLATION)

an excerpt from Parables of the eucalyptus
Jesus still speaks to us in parables that unfold when we look at His marvelous creation. The characteristics of what He has designed can speak volumes about who He is and who we are in His world. The eucalyptus is one of those fascinating creations with lots of parables to tell us. Within its characteristics are stories about the attributes of our Heavenly Papa, as well as qualities that He is working into your life and mine.Despite the fact that eucalyptus have a fairly narrow home range, they have been cultivated on every continent except Antarctica. Here is our first parable: the eucalyptus can be compared to God's kingdom, which started with just one nation--Israel--and now has spread to people, nations, tribes and tongues all over the world!

YOUR BREATH, OUR TEARS: LAMENTS FOR THE TWENTY FIRST-CENTURY (CONTRIBUTING AUTHOR)
It is not agnostics who write laments. It is not atheists defending their unbelief. Rather, it is the people who have seen the burning bush and have taken off their shoes--who have intimately experienced connection to Almighty God. This curated collection of laments comes from more than thirty authors, all of whom have experienced God intimately and keep holding on to Him in the silence and the sorrow.
