In the insanity that I know as my life, I am amazed at how God speaks. The Spirit is often sneaky, playful, timely, and poignant. I hope to savor each sighting, lest those moments where God’s Spirit breaks through, and in the midst of the insanity, be overlooked. Indeed, God is all around teaching, loving, and beckoning. Join me in searching for the Spirit.
