Motherhood and Sisterhood

This was a gift sent to me from a good friend and sister and fellow mother. What a great reminder that we are never alone on our journey. We have the Lord and each other. Always remember and cherish and nurture that.❤

As I Fly

As I Fly through this life,

And the turbulence grows,

I know who holds up my wings.

For I once used to walk

And sluggishly climb

But God gave me the Spirit for my keeping.

And along now I fly

Through life’s high points and low

And I never run out of fuel

For even if I glide

For a little while

God raises me body and soul.

We are not alone

On this flight we are on

Even if it seems that we are.

No, God’s in control

When we ask Him to be

So we can have peace and just smile.❤

Journey Onward

My heart is uptight today. Not enough sleep is probably the reason but it is always really more than that, isn’t it. And we washed and waxed the vans today and cleared off and swept the back patio in preparation to finally put flooring down. And I have lost more so am at minus 24 pounds now and look great. All these things and I should be happy. Much moreso, I have the deep underlying joy and peace from God in my spirit and that is always my constant. However, today I have anxt. I know why. Sometimes the frustrations of life buckle down in us, just fall in and create weight on our hearts. And I feel things moving in the spirit world, being much more sensitive to that as I draw closer to the Lord and deeper in His Word. And things are going on. The enemy is stepping up his game and God is, in answer to faith and prayer, stepping up His game and reminding said enemy who really owns everything. And here I am doing my little work and feeling it all. And sometimes ya just gotta feel it and keep working and doing your best and just pray more. And that is my job. And I will be faithful in that work. God bless you all. Hang in there! Love you, friend.❤

When Searching the World

I have searched the world. I have met such a large diversity of unique people that I have loved all around the world. I have traveled and searched all over. Always looking. Always exploring. Always wondering what was next. I found I was searching for my identity, trying to see who I was like of my vast array of ingredients I am made of. Hungarian, French, English, Aboriginal American Indian, Swedish, German, Scotch- Irish, and much of my family living in Africa. Which part is me? Where do I fit in?

It struck me that I am unique. There is no one like me. No one that I am like. I am weird. And really, I am an exquisite coctail of all these brave and successful descendents but fully God’s special built me. And I fit in with Him and pretty much that is what really matters most. More than that I am loved deeply by Him, no matter what. So I don’t have to keep searching. There is no right fit. I am beautifully weird everywhere except in God’s arms.❤

Living Your Life

1. I have my life to live and my journey to make.

2. I cannot walk someone else’s journey without failing mine.

3. Noone can walk my journey without failing theirs.

4. God is the Creator of the journey.

5. We can defy God or draw close to Him.

6. Each person must chose their eternity with God or without Him during this life journey. (Without Him is a horrible place.)

7. Jesus gets us to God and salvation. (A great place to be.)

8. Only you can be you and travel your journey.

9. Walking your own journey with Jesus is success.

10. I want to be successful and am no matter what uniqueness my journey holds because Jesus is my focus. ❤

Life’s Strange Journeys and Perfect Imperfection

I believe that from conception, we are destined to be on a strange journey until we leave this body and go to our eternal destination. I believe that we are on that strange journey partly because of the choices we make out of pride, selfishness, greed or even good intentions, but also because of the choices God makes in leading is toward Himself and a glorious eternity. I believe life is beautiful because everyone’s strange journey is unique. Even if it parallels another person’s journey, the giftedness of each person is unique, their looks or ethnicity is unique, their other relationships are unique, and these differences are part of the beauty. And all the twists and turns make it even more beautiful and hopefully closer to God. And my own personal story, wrought with glory, joy, happiness, intense pain, more intense pain, almost killed me pain, beauty, nature, travel, lots and lots of people, distance at times and now extreme closeness to God, music, art, leadership, degrees from formal education, life education, children, husband, and grandchildren, and weirdness. This has been the highlights of my life. I would not change a damn thing, not even the near death experiences, not even the depression, and definitely not all the good moments or those two seconds when life was perfect and I felt loved unconditionally by a person which faded fast. All of it and definitely my relationship with God my Father, I would not change one thing. It is accumulatively strange and beautiful. No one’s story is mine. No one’s mind is filled with my memories and story. These together are my steange and amazing journey. And yours is just as unique and strange.and beautiful. This is exactly as God designed and intended. Perfectly imperfect.❤

Writing Life

This journey we are on has a point. Might take years to discover it but it is on purpose. We are lovingly designed, not freakish accidents of life, not mutations, not decendents of lower life forms. That is a load of crap someone really bad is selling. We are designed on purpose by God and our lives matter, our journey matters. Our journey has a point. The point is that God made us and we are here to want Him back or not want Him back. If we want Him, He blesses us with really great spiritual gifts (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, love, hope, faith) and we are welcomed to Heaven later because that was His original plan. If we don’t want Him, we reject Him and live and life because He is life and death comes to us eternally after we die. While living, He keeps giving us chances and opportunities to choose Him. And writing chronicles our journey. Our writing matters and allows people to know our journey and be encouraged by and find hope from our journey. You can help people make the right choices with their journeys. Writing is a beautiful expression and sharing our journey with others who need help. Keep writing, it is so important and beautiful! ❤
