What God Might Say...

file-10


Of my past, God might say,

You are my child, then and now,

and I have always loved you.

Even in heavy moments of shame,

the darkest of nights;

in the hours you thought

I would never love you again.

Even then.

Of my faith, God might ask,

What is faith?

Some people think it is just

following the rules, abstaining;

keeping your legs expertly crossed,

and your hair brushed neatly.

But faith cannot be shown

in outside things.

Except, perhaps,

the kindness from your eyes

as you look into the face of another

while they share their pain.

Faith comes down

to the words of my Son:

Love one another.

No version of rule following can

mean more to me than this.

Of my future, God might say,

I can promise you,

if you stop living

as if I am taking accounts,

and live, instead,

from loving…


my love for you,

your love for others…


and ask yourself,

'What is essential?'

there you will find

the path that lies ahead,

and without fail,

you will find me there

with you.

    I’m turning 60 next month. I can hardly believe it myself. But, I’ve decided that I no longer want to live comfortably. I want to live with a spirit of adventure like I had in the past. To be unafraid of what’s new or different. I want to remain so open to the Spirit of the living God that his love compels me to go wherever he leads me.

    I am passionate about people leaning into all that Jesus is. You. Me. Us. Journeying together with God. This is my greatest blessing. And now that my kiddos are out on their own, I’m learning to navigate my new normal. And I am finding there is life after little ones and teens after all!

    I am currently a full-time nanny and will be returning to school in the fall of 2019 to finish mydegree in relational communications and graduate in the spring of 2020. I am using this break from school to grow, heal, appreciate a slower pace of living, and to invest more time into relationships with family, friends, and God. Through this process I am learning what I want to prioritize in my life and figuring out ways to make that happen. Most of all, I am figuring out that life is all about process, taking steps closer to where I want to be and celebrating the little victories but also accepting that there will be setbacks and disappointments along the way.
