Sharing Experience, Strength & Hope


 

WP_20141119_007Welcome to my updated, greatly improved, web site!

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!

November 15 Draw the Circle Day 23

I am half way through this life changing book about prayer and the day 23 selection feels so big to me: Sometimes God’s no really isn’t a no, but really it means, “not yet.”  I feel tearful as I write this.  When you are way past the half way... read more

“Too often we quit circling almost as soon as we start.”  In other words, we get our prayer list together, we draw the circle around the needs of those we care about and throw in a dream or two of our own with emphasis on a Promise or two that we jut read... read more

October 19, 2014 Draw the circle

A few mornings ago, I found myself waking up to my own little pity party.  I was feeling impatient.  Some of my plans were just not getting the response I had hoped for.  I carried my heavy soul to the front porch to water the plants and literally was stopped by what... read more

Linda speaks truth in an approachable, transparent and gentle way to the effect that it brings freedom to your life. Jill

Linda helps you to see truth and expects you to apply it. She is more of a “coach” than a therapist because once you KNOW truth you need to understand how to apply it.
