Just a glimpse of me...

Do you ever feel STUCK? In 2000, I began looking for answers to some tough questions in my life. I'd searched high & low and finally conceded to search the promises found in the Bible. Those promises have sustained & guided me through the loss of a parent, the struggle with anxiety & depression, the loss of a valued relationship and so much more! I've found joy amid the pain. And, I want to share it with you!

All You Need Is Love

There are times in life when you are... held between earth & heaven... with no words to speak... with only raw emotion to remind you that you are, in fact, still alive. The passing of a cherished loved one... cradling a newborn baby in your arms... hearing the diagnosis of a terminal illness... watching your child grow up to give birth to their own... being broken under the load of grief & sense of loss when a marriage dies...

When life hits & time seems to be frozen, we are often faced with overwhelming joy or overwhelming sorrow. We move forward along these paths with the help & support of loved ones who surround us with joyful celebration or with gentle comfort & strength. And, amid all of these situations, the strongest support is found in LOVE. Something so simple as "love" if often the answer for life's toughest questions.

It's been said:

The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around.... Throughout history, "tender loving care" has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing. ~ Larry Dossey
In the Bible we read:
"Three things will last forever - faith, hope & love. And the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:11 NLT
When you don't have the answers... look around for LOVE.
