“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one.

Luke 15: 8-10





We may be shattered, torn and oh-so-very lost. But the search is ongoing for us, high and low, in the dustiest and most hidden of places.

And once we are found…we become the greatest of treasures, transformed from plain to beautiful because we were missing and now are safely back home.


May my eyes see, my ears hear, my heart understand.  He prepares me with parable.

Once found and transformed we are never, ever the same person – and we burn with the desire to tell others of what He has done for us….
