He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands


I recorded this little ditty in May 2009, the night of my daughter’s high school graduation and party. The kids had played around on Photo Booth, and it looked like fun. So, by 2 a.m., the house was clean again and I was a little slap-happy. When I sat down to check facebook, the mirror on Photo Booth was still on and I noticed how my shirt looked like the world…sort of. Hence the making of a very weird-two-a.m.-sort-of video. 🙂 I think I was preaching to myself, knowing that in just a few short months, my one and only little girl was going to start college.

So, tell me….what would YOU be worried about, except for the fact you know He’s got the whole world in His hands?

I'm just like you, but totally unique. We have things in common, but we are all God's one-of-a-kind creatures. I enjoy finding The Funny in life when it gets messy. And we all know how life can get messy, right? Some of the things I love: God, family, friends, storytelling, community, nature, the arts, beauty, travel, fun and games, learning, the study of the personalities, teenagers, acting, writing and missions. More specifically: the mountains, the beach, breathing clean air, traveling to new places, experiences, deep conversations, appreciating the minute in nature, lunching with girlfriends, practicing sensing, predicting trends, taking a few risks along the way. I hate routine, so starting (and keeping up) this vlog is risky for me...but I love community (and a few risks), so I'm going for it! I hope you join me and we can have some Serious Fun together!

  1. I watched this over and over again and am amazed. I’m amazed that you can think of these creative things. I’m amazed at technology. I’m amazed that this is what you were thinking- amazed an a good way. But more importantly, I’m amazed that God still has us in His hands–I would have dropped us a loooong time ago.

    • Haha, Cheri, I’m amazed you had TIME to watch it! And yeah, your comment, “I would have dropped us a looooong time ago” I agree with you. 🙂 But that’s why He’s God and we are….us. Aren’tcha glad?

  2. WOW! Your colorful shirt truly did look like the world. What a great reminder!
