Hoping to share the love, joy, and grace I have received in my own life.

I’m Back!

on June 22, 2021

It’s been a while, friends! So much has happened over the course of the past few years. When I began blogging, it was in hope of helping others who were grieving. The writing ended up being very cathartic for myself, as well. I have not been faithful to writing in this space for quite some time, but it is time for me to return.

So much has happened. I have completed seminary, been appointed to two United Methodist Churches, become an “Aga” (the made up word given to me by my precious grandson), and grown in God’s mercy, grace, and love. I am not sure where this blog is headed, but I want to try to keep up with it for a while, at least writing once a week or so. So, what do you all want to talk about?

I still find my place in the world of grief. Trevor walks with me each day and I love to share about how God has moved me to where I am now in my journey. This morning I was on my way to have breakfast with great friends/sisters in Christ and the song I have attached came on the radio. I was moved to tears – thankful for what God has done in my life. God has certainly broken new ground inside of me, healed wounds in me, made me new. This is a joy that I want to share with everyone I know…and everyone I don’t. I am free! In the same way, I am also realistic, grounded. I know the tragedies we face in this life are, at times, excruciating. God is there in all of it. That is too much of a gift to not share.

So, if I still have any followers, this will be a place where I will praise God for the good, lament over the hard things, and talk about life. I hope you’ll join me. In the mean time, listen to Tasha Layton sing “Look What You’ve Done”. The link is at the bottom of this post. This song speaks perfectly to the work God does in the lives of those who call desperately in the night for help. Hallelujah! Everyone deserves to feel this love and grace and mercy. Life is hard, but we have a God who loves us and desires a relationship with us that helps us muddle through the muck and rejoice on the mountains. Peace be with you all!
