March 17, 2016 my friend Lanita


This is her birthday.

She has a magnificence

Regal from standing under the height of the men she raises.

She sparks their attention,

they account with revolution.

She sets them up for freedom 

for liberty, 

the way that makes us want to run when the road starts to catch fire.

Fueled with fire.

A spirit ignited.

She encourages.

She is a force.

A force to be reckoned with –

the ally who loves with everything in her.

In her sphere, we are honored to have her fighting on our behalf.

Her guts leave my mouth hanging open, 

but only because there is a piece of me

that wishes I was as bold.

And, because I know it is fueled by an ultimate love … 

the kind that is soft and passionate about teaching others to step into their power.

Happy birthday, my fellow three-sons mom, Lanita.

You are a constant in helping me shine my brightest these last few years-

From rallying me through the trenches…

You back me no matter what power I choose to step in to, 

but, more importantly, you continue to model standing in your own.

You prove that recognizing we are special doesn’t make us arrogant, 

but actually helps us also see how special everyone else is.

It is an honor to be in this world watching you shine your light

in ways that benefit others and energize you.

We are lucky to have the gift of YOU.

I stand up with gratitude for you and the other women in our lives 

that continue to shape you and me …

those that showcase 

their power,

their amplitude,

their strength,

their stamina,

their courage, and

their transforming love.

Happy birthday, happy year – Love, love you!


‘a friend will be a friend in times of all kinds’ Proverbs 17:17

March 11, 2016 I’ll say it again: ask


“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” James‬ ‭1:5-8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Mornin’ DearOne,

It always blows my mind when it happens. Yet … I don’t know why I am surprised … Again. 

I need direction, and I say, “Father, let me hear you clearly, I don’t know what to do. Give me a sign. You lead, I’ll follow. I just need to know.”

And. He. Does. 

Every time. 

From the most unlikely places, or conversations, or gifts, He answers. 

I’m amazed by the power of asking. 

Are you believing man’s word … the kind that leave you with more questions than answers? Or, are you asking, and believing, and listening for your Creator who loves you and will not leave you or forsake you? 

Thanks Mal for the book. Yeah. My favorite kind … with real paper pages where words even soaked in through my fingertips – totally truth-laden. Timing was all Divine. 

Thanks Levi for the call the other day, and never hedging from going down “that” road., whatever “that” may be. (You never have to guess what a Lewis man is thinking 😳, right Holly and Whit?!)

Momma-you are rock solid …. you listen, listen, listen … then, BAM – you gently pour out liquid gold, sealing in His clear word. 

Thanks, God, my Creator, the Father who loves … for confirmation, confirmation, confirmation …. of what You were already whispering to my heart. 

All love,

Wake up.

March 8, 2016 call Him in


“No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded.” John 10:18


Sometimes, (more often than I like to admit) my human bulk kicks in and takes off down a wild trail all its own. Then, I hear the Tarzan call of the Holy One calling me back (He goes to extreme measures to shake the branches of one with my mammoth imagination). He sends a 47 mph Oklahoma breeze to say, “My Child.” I stop in my tracks. I know the sound of the flutter of His voice on my heart. 

I have learned to respond, “Yes, Lord. I call all of the power of Your Holy Spirit back to me now. I am whole and complete in You.”

Then, I drop the waste of the worry, the self-defeating critiques, and the fear. I kick dirt on it, stomp it in, and walk. Clean. Free. Forgiven. Whole. Complete. All His power fueling me.

Life. When we show up and give our Spirit-driven energy away freely, intentionally, with sure intent, we get stronger. We become Power-full. 

When we choose to send our energy out without thinking, fold to the wooing lies of the enemy, we become victims of our own making. When we over-give out of a need for perfection or obligation – we don’t get stronger. We drain, deplete, stiffen and panic from fear.

Be aware. Listen for the Holy. Call in His POWER.

Wake up. 

Let Him back in.

March 8, 2016 send it away


“Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. But don’t rejoice because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered in heaven.” Luke‬ ‭10:19-20‬ ‭NLT‬‬
Because someone else also needs this word today:

You’re an awesome person angel. 

I am so proud of you. 

Take a deep breath. 

Hold your head high. 

Set your shoulders back. 

Haters will hate – that’s their problem, not yours. Do no own any part of that. 

Put up an imaginary shield around you – set the Holy Spirit as your guard – and only let enter those thoughts and plans that keep building you. 

Every time a critical comment tries to enter acknowledge it … ‘yep, I see you there’ … then send it away. Replace anything negative with an action or thought to sharpen your skills. You are going to be just fine. Your family will, too. 

You’re stronger than you think you are. You can do more than you think you can, especially when you’ve been pushed to the edge – that is where the Mighty One is most fierce on your behalf and He sets the tide to the point that begins to turn back again, all in your favor. 

To God be all the Glory.

‘If God is for us, who can be against us?’ Romans 8:31

I love you, I’m here. 


March 4, 2016 tangle


“So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:35-36‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Good morn, MightyOne,
Life feels different on you after you’ve greeted death, and learn your heart’s heightened position. Have you noticed? Have you noticed how each day can change us? How each year brings new wonder of the Holy Spirit? The more we trust the process, the more we acknowledge the power of God Most High coursing through us to do His will. 

Well, … we realize we are time’s containers. God’s time. We are a simple mix – a tangle of blood and bones and brains into which our Maker pours time into us, just as He pours consistent and steady, the stars into each night’s sky. And, then we pour out again. In between the pourings – we choose the track on how we live our lives. 

Somewhere, someone is going to have a spectacular day today. Or, maybe tomorrow, the best day they ever had. Maybe even more than one person. Maybe you.

Pour your tangle of blood and bones and brains out in full honor to the One who poured you in. 

Wake up. 

Pour out.

March 3,2016 paw the ground



“Have you given the horse its strength or clothed its neck with a flowing mane? Did you give it the ability to leap like a locust? Its majestic snorting is terrifying! It paws the earth and rejoices in its strength when it charges out to battle. It laughs at fear and is unafraid. It does not run from the sword. The arrows rattle against it, and the spear and javelin flash. It paws the ground fiercely and rushes forward into battle when the ram’s horn blows. It snorts at the sound of the horn. It senses the battle in the distance. It quivers at the captain’s commands and the noise of battle.”

‭‭Job‬ ‭39:19-25‬ ‭NLT‬‬
Dearheart, know this:
Your dreams are not a race, 

not a test, 

not a series of skill levels that give you permission proceed.

Your dream has life, each breath in is a choice to fuel your existence into the heart of the ways of the Holy … into more sacred desires … into the brightness of the Morning Star. 
Eternal permission to step into victory, ah – yes, that is the heart of this day. 

Permission granted. 

Lift your dream like that dream deserves to be carried. 

A place of honor. 

Like a precious blue diamond, an Olympic torch, the very cure to all ailment itself. Like solid gold. 

Speak to you dream, DearOne, whisper to it. Wrap it in your Holy Spirit. Strap it on with your water canteen and begin the climb toward His sacred ground, running. Put it on the battle field – in a hidden, secret place. Hear people applaud. Feed the dream well – with nourishment kinds of foods, the really healthy soul-fuels. 

Your dream has been placed by the Holy One. The God Who Loves You extends the privilege to run in saber-light focus 

turning dreams into matter. 

Make the motion count, shine through to the finish … there you will find, there’s nothing brighter than the place where heaven’s victory meets the dirt of the earth. 
Wake up. 

Give dreams life.
