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.

Team Delaney. How Can I?“Miracles don’t always make faith. Tangible proofs don’t guarantee trust. Suffering, loss, difficulty, questions, wrestling and the oceanic grace and unflinching presence of God do.

    Another facet in this unimaginable journey, the face of which deflects the light of God’s glory and shines it brightly into a world without hope. May His strength be yours. May His peace be yours. And above all may you know the depth of His love.

    Monica and Delaney, I am praying for you both! We have watched the Lord Jesus bring Danica and you, Monica through so much because His abundant grace, mercy, and love. In spite of all the suffering, He has been drawing you closer and closer to Himself and has filled your life with grace and all you need for each moment of each day.

    The Lord’s grace is NOT just sufficient. 2 Corinthians 9:8 says that His grace is abundant in All things! I am trusting Him for His abundant grace for every moment for the four of you. Sending love and prayers as He holds you all in His loving and grace-filled arms. Deuteronomy 33:27 “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are His everlasting arms.
