Gather Here

Hello Dear Friends.
I am so excited to be in a place where I am not recovering from any surgeries.
We are in a new rhythm of life and it feels good to be able to
Gather Here and share pieces of home, family, and our faith again.

Our entry way just inside the door is one of my favorite places. 
It’s sparse. It’s always clean. And those floors. You can click here to read more.

Below, is what used to be my husband’s office.
It worked well for most purposes. 
Except when we began to homeschool, I realized quickly that the distractions were mutual. 


So, I went on a quest & have played a little bit of musical furniture-
throughout the whole house. 
Okay, YES a few times.
Finally, this is where the music seems to stay paused- for now


We’ve sat and enjoyed long talks.
Had several sits and phone conversations.
Mia and I have play lots of games of tic-tac-to with each other.

Sitting and gazing, I’ve been lost & dreaming again…
Of who God will bring through the doors as we begin to Gather and Build Community. 
Of all that this life holds for each day we are given to hold. 

It’s been an amazing year of healing-literally all year.  
Almost unreal to think we are finally in a place that is allowing for space to breathe.
No more cancer, no more surgeries…
I am managing well thus far with my MS. Thankful. Grateful. Happy.
God has moved some really big mountains and is asking us now to
Open the Door, Gather Here, and Share His Story…. 

In all the moves over the last 16 years, it’s allowed us to serve at many churches and gather with many people. And we absolutely love every memory.
Something we have always made a core part of who we are, an Open door policy. That simple.

I have two college interns that can attest to the realness of that statement.


Another view from the kitchen area. Aren’t those towels the cutest??
I got them at the Mercantile in Pawhuska .. that will be a whole different post. It was awesome!! 


We are so excited to start a new LifeGroup. We do attend Life Church in Mustang. However- it Doesn’t matter what church, what denomination, what age or stage of life you are in. 
We want to be the place where all are welcome to gather here.
Always room at our table and with my love of chairs- you’ll always have a seat. 

Authentic and Real Relationships meant to help us all do life better-
centered around the beautiful light & love of Jesus Christ. 

Keep company with Me and you’ll learn to live freely & lightly. Matthew 11:30 MSG

Cancer shadowed a lot of life over these past couple of years… but as it lifts and my focus and zest for living become clearer. 
I see how I built a collection of windows, doors, chairs, and mirrors…
Lot’s of light that passes and reflects through.  

We are used as His doors and mirrors. His Army of Angels… Found loving and reflecting His image. 

Abide in me. -John 15:4-5
Knock and you shall find me. -Matthew 7:7-8
Walk in the light as I am the light. -1 John 1:7

So all of us who have had the veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into his glorious image. 2 Corinthians 3:18

Thanks for stopping by!!
Hope to see you back soon!! 
Ollie and I will be right here!!
