Life – beautiful, painful, wonderful, frightening…precious in all it brings. I couldn’t say that a few years ago, but when you come out of a season where you’ve lived in survival mode, you begin to see the beauty in the ashes; the refinement after the fire. I have felt deep pain as a wife, mother, daughter, woman. Pain from my own mistakes, and wounds from others’ mistakes…sin…ugliness. And I have been washed in love and grace. I never understood these words until I walked through the fire. Oh why do we try to go through life without God’s leading? Our ways lead to brokenness. Over and over. I am so thankful God creates a colorful mosaic from the pieces, a work of art. I’ll be sharing as God leads me – glimpses into my story, my pain, my washed in grace life. For now, if you find yourself in survival mode, find shelter under His wings. He will carry you through.
Yes, it’s been a while since I have blogged. It was all I could do to cling to my Jesus, and take care of my family. Writing seemed so raw and personal. God’s been tugging at my heart…to write for Him, to play for Him, to create for Him. So I’m answering the call again. I’m your servant, Lord, take what I have and use it for your glory.
One word I’ve gotten is to keep things simple. On that note, I’m taking my multiple blogs, and combining them into one, this one. God has given me an eclectic personality. I love variety in everything, and that’s what you’ll find on this blog. I may talk about the grace of God one day, and eye makeup the next. Hopefully, the navigation bar will help you find what you’re interested in. I’ll be adding sidebars and other blog elements as we go, but for now, I want to write in the midst of the construction work. After all, our lives are always in a state of flux and change, and if we wait until everything is just so…what will we miss in the mean time? I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
