I Talk Seriously About God…

“And when the event, the big change in your life, is simply an insight—isn’t that a strange thing?  That absolutely nothing changes except that you see things differently and you’re less fearful and less anxious and generally stronger as a result: isn’t it amazing that a completely invisible thing in your head can feel realer than anything you’ve experienced before?

“You see things more clearly and you know that you’re seeing them more clearly.

“And it comes to you that this is what it means to love life, this is all anybody who talks seriously about God is ever talking about. Moments like this.”

Jonathan Franzen, The Corrections


In Charissa’s Kitchen May 21st 2015


For my friend Stephanie… Glad our Lord gave death a bad case of indigestion… And then so lovingly served AGAIN!

So too, you serve, you broken for our kids here, like Him…

And the day will come when Rose 🌹 will be the verb past tense when all the past, tense is behind us, beneath us, as He waltzes us home for good.

In friendship, in identification, in love, Charissa

Do Justice. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly.
Love, Charissa
