When I was a very little girl, my family lived in a large, historic farmhouse. I’m not sure how old I was, but I must have been old enough to take a nap in a big girl bed (or else climb out of a crib) because my first memory is standing at the top of the curving staircase in the hallway, looking out this portal shaped window into the sky and asking God, “Who am I? Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing?” Pretty lofty thoughts for a little girl.
I was baptized as an infant and confirmed in a Protestant church. My parents divorced, mother moved my sister and me to a new town, and we no longer attended church. I’m convinced it was a supernatural move of God’s sheer grace that years later, I recommitted my life to Him, gained a personal relationship with His son, Jesus, and discovered the Holy Spirit as a young wife and mother.
The days “fashioned for me” by God are far different from anything I would have imagined. Walking along with God, is an amazing journey. The ups and downs, trials, and assignments have all proven to me that Paul’s words in Acts 17: are real –”In Him, we live and move and have our being.”
My testimony, as written here, in a nutshell, is not remarkable, and that’s why I chose the Scripture from Psalm 139:16 to set the tone of this landing page. The author of the Psalm could have been you or me. It’s in recognizing our divine Creator that life with Him begins. He is able to introduce us to His Son.
If the Lord had not taken me along this path for over thirty years, I wouldn’t presume to write a blog about it. Writers sharing from the depths of their experience in Christian faith encourage me daily. My hope and prayer are what you find written on these pages, encourage and inspire you.
We really are offsprings of God’s grace when we become Christians. Don’t you forget it!
for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’Acts 17:28
