Hope in the Aftermath of Election Day

(This post was written after the 2012 election, not 2016. I feel differently about the results this year; however, the unrest still grieves me. The heart of this article still pertains … and always will.) I must admit, I am grieved by election day results. This is not how I had hoped or prayed it…

In Which I Have No Answer (Freedom and Grace)

Lately, a day is but a breath to me–here for an instant but gone the next. Not surprisingly, not much gets accomplished in that breath. I’m left frustrated and feeling inadequate. It hasn’t always been like that. 23 years ago when I said “I do” my life stretched endlessly in front of me. It appeared…

How a Willow Tree Made Me Eat My Words

“You did it on purpose!” The words shot from my mouth, projected through lips squashed into a tight line. Hot tears stung my cheeks. I was certain he didn’t care. I wanted to make him. For months I’d nursed a weeping willow sapling, hoping to transplant it to a more permanent home in our lawn.…

What Happens When You Put Yourself in Time-out?

“That’s it! You’re in time-out, Buster!” Sound familiar? Perhaps you said these words (or something similar) to your child an hour ago, or maybe it’s been years since they last passed your lips. Most likely though, if you are a parent, you found yourself resorting to time-out at some point. And for good reason. Emotions…

Deleting Emails and Living for the Lord

There are few things more freeing than zeroing out an email account. Have you tried it? For the first time in years, my emails are reduced to a mere handful I need to address later. Thousands of messages are gone … POOF! And I don’t wish even one back (well, maybe one). In fact, I…

Cleaning the Inside – the Jesus Way

Have you ever entered an alluring house, with a “to-die-for” exterior and immaculate landscaping, only to be turned off the instant you stepped through the door? A house with a well-manicured outside is inviting. Trimmed flora, scrubbed siding, and grime-free windows project an impression of care by the owners. However, a spiffy outside doesn’t compensate…

Julie Sunne

Hello, I'm Julie, an imperfect wife and mother of four. Life in this broken world is not always easy. Yet, joy can be found in each day through the grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ.
