Ever since my teen years, I’ve known there resides a writer in me. It has only been the last few years that I’ve slowly unleashed her.
I have had the unrivalled joy of bringing three children into this world and experiencing the love of motherhood. I have also had the crushing blow of attending the funeral of my only son. Since early childhood, life has not always been kind, offering a series of heartbreaking events, then later chronic physical pain; all of which I have been determined to overcome. As many know, life can and does throw us into sharp twists and jagged turns one never expects. It is my conviction that faith in God is the key, and that during harsh times there is only one place to keep your eyes: Jesus. Looking anywhere else may seem like a wonderful distraction, but it will eventually cause your world to spin further out of control. Been there, suffered that.
Hope for the hopeless. That is my deepest desire for this blog. I will be sharing little stories of my personal growth and journey. The posts I write are often also written to myself over my own struggles.
My wish is to encourage and offer hope to those who feel hopeless. For far too long I was a prisoner in the quicksand of hopelessness, sinking deeper with every step. I have cried buckets of tears in the dungeon of despair. Faith, tried by a scorching flame and a renewed dedication in God, has led me to the awakening that God has been a strong presence all along through every trial. Even when I refused to acknowledge Him. Evidence of His love has given me an inner serenity and joy I never thought possible. I am no longer defeated.
Happily married for the second time around, I am blessed to have a husband that loves me. In our humanity, we have a vital need to love and to be loved. Knowing this, God, through Jesus Christ His Son, offers us a supreme kind of love and grace. I am eternally blessed to know that I can love the God of all creation through Jesus and that He Royally loves me! God personally introduced me to this type of love in my late teens, but I really didn’t comprehend or recognize its true potency and life giving power till much later in my life.
Blessings to all,
