Choosing to have hope in the midst of pain

Choosing to have hope in the midst of pain

I debated writing this post. If not for any other reason, it’s this….transparency is not easy! And it’s especially not easy when our situation is still fresh or ongoing.  Most times we are more inclined to share when we have gone through our experience and come out the other end victorious. But, even just making the decision to share in struggles somehow has the power to be comforting.  Though this post is not about full disclosure, I felt lead to share this much. No one wants to feel pain!! As a Registered Nurse, I know it’s common knowledge that pain

Walking through the seasons of life

The huge potted mums was lying on its side again.  Though larger than most, the plastic planter was no match for the strong winds and rain that were normal for this time of the year. Most of the beautiful red, yellow and orange leaves that had majestically crowned the tree tops were now lying in a bronze colored carpet on the ground.

I heard one giggle followed by another and saw

He left ninety-nine for me!

He left ninety-nine for me!

This was one of the last few posts I wrote on my old blog site before coming over to WordPress.  I wrote this at a time when I was filled with the absolute awe of how great a love my Saviour has for me, a love that amazes me every single day.  There are days when we might stray a little or a lot,  or even days when life seems so overwhelming and chaotic we can lose focus of the unconditional love our Saviour has for us.  I thought I would share it with you today as a re-post.   The night
