Sharing Experience, Strength & Hope
Although there are lots of new things in my life in this last year, the thing that has not changed, is my resistance to technology. And yet, here I am, still trying to keep up in this age of social media thanks to the encouragement from my 2 year old grandson that can bring up “Wheels on the bus” with his eyes closed.
As I approach this upcoming Thanksgiving-Christmas season, I want to share the overwhelming sense of gratitude that I am feeling as I write this. I love the verses in Psalm 71 that says “Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone……Be not far from me……But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise more and more…..Since my youth you have taught me and to this day, I declare your marvelous deeds, I will declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come.” It looks like I still have some work to do And, I am not quite sure exactly what that work looks like but I have “holy anticipation.”
I am sure that God provided me a wonderful place to live while I care for my mother who will be 90 in July. I am sure that taking care of my temple/body is high on the list of priorities that God has for me. I am sure that I am still such a student of all that God has to teach me through the joy and the sorrow. I am sure that I love sharing my experience, strength, and hope with all who are looking looking for a more meaning life. Mostly, I am sure that I am a very blessed woman; my family, my friends, and the smartest, most loving and kind and funny (will you get the picture) grandchildren bless me every day.
As I head towards this new year, I encourage you to “Draw the Circle in prayer, live more and more each day in the moment, and seek to see God’s Hand in your life so that you might see yourself as He sees you. And, if I can be of any service to you on your journey, please let me know. Do check out my blog as I share my story and let me know your story. It is all about the story!
