Wide . . . 
the word conjures up so much in my head.

Wide . . . 
how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ (Eph. 3:18) was the first thing that came to my mind. what a wonderful picture!

Wide . . . 
how wide are the shifts in mood around my house from day to day (or moment to moment).
it's been a bit of roller coaster around here lately.
lots of changes.
my son left for college.
my husband started graduate school.
my daughter is in her senior year of college -- classes, working, internship -- all while dealing with bipolar disorder.
i am reinventing my relationship with my parents and coming to grips with the long lasting effects of childhood sexual abuse.
wide shifts.

Wide . . . 
open possibilities.
open opportunities.
open future.

  1. Thanks for your post. Ephesians is the first thing I thought of as well. I will be praying for your family and all their life events going on!!

  2. How hopeful that no matter how wide our emotions span, Christ's love is even wider!

  3. Sometimes life is indeed very "wide" with the range of what we face, feel, survive. And yet, God's love is wider still. I love the way you ended this post, and how you used wide for FMF.

  4. When I think of wide I think of how wide my butt is getting and I have to say thank you because now I will think of this post instead.
