I have always been a writer.  For most of my life I haven’t written for people to read.  I put pen to paper because I was made in the image of a God who used words to call this world into existence, and He used words to call me to Himself.  Before I was formed in my mother’s womb He breathed into me a mind and heart for reading and writing.  Out of all the talents He could have given He chose a spirit that yearns to take twenty-six symbols and turn them over and over again into pages of what I’ve never considered an ordinary story.  Once in a while, when I would let them slip out into the universe, people told me what I wrote was a gift and asked me if I would please do it more.   I’m just now barely brave enough to put my name on it.

Farther Along. Please Pray for UsWhen I leave a decided silence here I am even more reluctant to return. After all, this was a place to tell a story, and I became more weary of it than you ever could have, and I mostly quit. The narrative is in between these words.

    Praying friend. I just read this post to Parker and he started singing the chorus when I finished. He grew up in the reeds of Blue Grass Gospel. ❤️

    Sweet friend. Please forgive my silence, too. I bring you before the Father as he places you on my heart. The journey is hard – not a journey someone should take alone.

    I don’t know what glories God has in store. Bit his word says you are in his plans, on his mind and on his heart.

    Praying for you.

    Oh how I LOVE this song. It came to me in a very, very dark time and a deep place of surrender. So I keep you and your family in prayer, for wherever you are in this story, for comfort and peace, and for open hands to receive the provision of His next miracle through your lives.
