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.

    😭❤️ I have prayed specifically that He would provide a person to be with you post surgery once dan leaves. 🙌🏼 I love you so much. And I’m so proud of you and I will take a chance here and state that you can’t choose to give up for God hasn’t given you that authority. When you are weak, He is strong. In fact we can stop right at HE IS. Don’t believe that lying snake and take on something that’s not yours. When you think and feel like you cannot go on, He always can & does. You are HIS! Sweet Sister, I love you so and battling with you in prayer!!

    I pray often for you and your family. You express so much of your heart when you write. I am brought into your world as if I am sitting across from you and we’re old friends talking. You give back all the time through your God-given gifts, and you share your light with others that points them to Jesus. I’d say you are doing what God made you to do. At the end of the day, Jeremiah 29:11. His plans are so much better. Love you my sister in Christ —
