The dream is real… and I love you

This is a story of encouragement and dreams alive and gratitude, but I need to take you down into the dirty with me before we climb back out and see the light. I woke up this morning with three hours of sleep and money…

Love Never Fails

Each and every year we were married – no matter where he was in the world – Steve sent me roses on HIS birthday. The odd tradition began after our first year of marriage. He was away on a “work trip” and after a…

Bukszoo’s Twisted Cheer ~

Most of my slightly ‘off’ ideas start with a spark of intrigue and/or rebellion, wander around trails in my head, pause for rest, pause for prayer, and then take off like I’m driving a Maserati down The Stelvio pass in Italy. This particular idea…

Let Go of the Reins

I began once again to dream about the future at 10:02 pm on a Friday night eleven months and 26 days after Steve died. I only know this because at the exact moment I entered the dark barn on our North Carolina farm that evening,…

Living by Faith

Sheri wrote this last year toward the end of February. I tripped over it tonight… on purpose, I believe. I needed a bit of grounding and a reminder that all is well and unfolding exactly as it needs to in Divine time. True enough…

Excerpt from Married to the SEAL Teams: Lessons in Love “You have the power to heal yourself, and you need to know that.  We think so often that we are helpless, but we’re not. We always have the power of our minds. Use your…

Founded by Grace…

Everything comes with risk, but when a Warrior lives through war and lands at LZ-Grace, it is to overcome, reconnect to family and community and achieve the peace that comes from within. When we acknowledge and release what we’ve lived through and find connection with one…

Honor, Live and Never Forget

To our First Responders across this great land, the many souls who have died as innocent civilians and brave Warriors since September 11, 2001, the families and friends who to this day miss and love, and to our living Warriors who continue daily to…

The Grace of our need… is Love

I would seek for you and me a world that humans too seldom enter, for it exists only in the moment when strong men and women seek uniqueness, strive for freedom and join themselves in the struggle for interpersonal dignity, integrity and worth. It…

Rainy Morning Letters – Moon Dance in Baguio (revisited)

It is only by risking ourselves from one hour to another that we live at all. ~William Jones Late at night we gossip about small events and the largeness of life. The darkness softens and I am nearly asleep when I remember one last…

One Red Maple (by Sheri Bukowski)

Years ago my parents moved to the country and bought a little farm. 17 acres…trails…ponds…horses… grass. It was a place of respite, a place my father found peace during and after 32 years of military service. He went to work remodeling, building, designing and…

The Power of Sharing Strength…

(Sharing Strength was posted on August 6, 2012. I have revised the original in light of recent events because… much of it bears repeating)   Iron sharpens iron. As one man sharpens another.  (Prov. 27:17)  This is the miracle of human connection: we do…
