I would be remiss, if I didn’t take this moment to say THANK YOU to those who have taken moments out of their lives to read my words here and to those who have even shared their words, thoughts and inspirations here also.
I do appreciate you and I just want you all to know how much you have inspired me as well.
I have come to a place of not wanting to forget my past – and pain – but to embrace it – to remember it and to remember those that I loved dearly, even in the midst of pain. Who I am today is a direct result of the love and pain. I have chosen to enter this new year with more love in my heart for God than I ever thought possible. I am excited to see where God will utilize me this year.
I am grateful to God for the people he has placed even on the outskirts of my life. I am grateful to every single one of them – y es, every one! We aren’t meant to lash out to hurt others. We are meant to love others. We are all flawed but what beautiful flaws they are. The flaws are just the beautiful woven strands in your beautifully woven life. While it is our choice to share with others what He has brought us through, it is also an honor. Every single story is valuable – especially when it points others to God….
I will continue to pray for the first res ponders, who put their lives in harms way each day and each night for each of us, while we we lay our heads down in slumber each night – feeling safe and that includes our military. What an honor you have been given to serve others and I admire you all so much!
I have had a vision for my community for a while now and I will share it here…it would be great for other communities to adopt something similar and unique and I WOULD SO LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT IT HERE/PLEASE SHARE..My vision has been of area churches coming together in song and testimony (a movement) – within the community and moving to other communities- sharing what God has done and what He is doing. Testimonies, our stories are so powerful…and we are so meant to share them. Remember, they are a part of your legacy…..write – share – sing!
I wish you much love and light and much peace today and for the New Year!
