About Rachel

God is in the muck and mire of everyday life. But it takes some proverbial looking up to know that. One of the Bible writers says to “Set your mind on things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.” We need to open the eyes of our hearts to that spacious place we can actually live. There is always more hope for ourselves and the world than we can see. There is always more love that we can experience. Looking up is not blind optimism, it is spiritual realism. My hope for this blog is that as the world gets darker, the eyes of our hearts will grow brighter with the grace that is Jesus.
