My story really begins at the age of 5 years old while sitting on the piano bench in Sunday School next to my cousin Ronnie. I remember it like it was yesterday…listening intently to the Salvation story as we kicked our legs back and forth eagerly raising my hand proclaiming, “I Believe!” And quoting John 3:16:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”.
Little did I realize I was about to embark on a journey that would take me through many of lives growing pangs creating highs and lows, a life of joy and sorrow. There would be times of peace and chaos and much needed forgiveness.
It’s my journey as a young girl growing into a teenager, falling in love, marrying the boy across the street, and then becoming a mother only to experience single life at the age of 40. The challenges of finding myself at the crossroad in life where I will have to dream up new dreams, fight the good fight, and learn when to wave the white flag of surrender as I start all over again. But ladies, as we begin our next journey in life let us be reminded of another truth, we are not alone!
These stories will be reflections of God’s unconditional love, his mercy, his provision, his protection, and his constant love for me and my family as my story unfolds. A myriad of experiences that could cause one to fall away from God and question his love. However, I pray those reading my blog will see the hand of God guiding, protecting and growing me through the many seasons of life. And you too would reflect and see the Truth of His love guiding you through the different seasons of your life.
These memories are a mixture of great joy, silly laughter, silly love, great loss and heartache as I’ve learned my way through life depending on God’s great love, mercy and grace to see me through.
And so it begins, from fear to faith…a journey to the other side.
And forever and always I will echo King David…”But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your Salvation. I will sing to The Lord, for he has been good to me”. Psalm 13:5&6
