At Every Moment

At every moment and every situation, God is the intimate, attentive and encouraging friend. — John O'Donohue/ Anam Cara

I love my precious Savior…

You are acquainted with all my ways… —Psalm 139:3.

He walks so intimately with me; on this journey I am on. A journey with dementia and primary progressive aphasia.

I love this quote by Frederick Buechner, "If we keep our hearts and minds open, if we listen with patience and hope…then I think we come to recognize, beyond all doubt, that however faintly we may hear him, he is indeed to speaking to us…his word comes to each of us is precious beyond telling."

"Like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can't stop the raging storm but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship."
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

I cannot stop the storm that is pursing me, but I can sing and lift the spirit of others around me.

Thank you, God, that I can still sing…even in harmony.

"You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance." ― Kahlill Gibran

I have joy and trust God's plan for me. God's peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. —Philippians 4:7

"Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure." —Oprah Winfrey

I'm breathing in God's Spirit and I'm living in every moment.

Happy Labor Day to our readers!

    I’m turning 62 this year. 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 finishing my degree in relational communications and plan to graduate in the spring of 2020!! I am thankful I have had time 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.
