Thankful for Dementia


May God the Father and the Lord Jesus the annointed surround you with grace and peace. Ephesians 1:2

I am grateful for dementia. I can't find the words. So, I remain quiet. 

The holy resilient don't just  endure, they become more: more compassionate, deeper, simpler in their desires and more focused in how they use their time. It's not about adjusting but transformation. It's about becoming a NEW person. 

They let go of long-cherished dreams, set aside life patterns that are harmful, jettison practices that once worked well, but no longer do so.

They take hold...of any fresh graces they see growing within them. They seek new glimmerings of God's love.

The rhythm of the holy resilient, is Jesus is sacred, life-giving. 

The take-up questions repeated in order to live faithfully with change.

What must I let go of?  The abilities we cherish, comfortable ways, life itself.

In the midst of this change that is taking place, what abides? Peace.

What of Christ am I invited to put on? We are to seek the fruit of Spirit that he sends; so is it patience we need to put on during this particular time of change? Or is it kindness? Generosity? Faithfulness? Or Love?

What fresh glimpse of God's grace do I see amidst all that is going on?

    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.
  • LuAnn


    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!
  • Emilie


    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.
