Hey there. I’m glad you’ve stopped by.
The world feels a bit crazy right now and many important things are happening. Some of them are quite painful because they stretch us emotionally, spiritually.
A sensible person might wonder if generosity and love are still more powerful than greed and violence.
The same person may also ask if God even exists. Or think, ‘If there is a Creator, is He still listening, paying attention to what’s going on down here, much less caring about me in the mess and the muck?’
I very much think God exists.
And that He does care deeply about every single one of us. Without exception.
God shows up daily by extending us grace – in nature, through people, via circumstances, and orchestrating events. His handiwork is subtle, powerful, and exquisite. Once we open our eyes to see it, it’s hard not to be astonished by the beauty of it, everywhere.
Here at Like the Dewfall and in my weekly newsletter Friday Fireflies, I encourage you to see grace in your life and to look for the things that connect us – compassion, decency, goodness, and a desire for peace.
May this space always welcome all people, and serve as a lasting and loving memorial to the woman who inspired it, my step-sister Claudia, who died in 2014 while fighting an infection after the birth of her third child. Her spirit and resolve still offer me hope and guidance. (Read more of her story here.)
