I am bursting with gratitude! Thank you to each and every person who prayed for me, encouraged me, thought of me, believed in me. I am slowly getting my life back and the first sign was that I was able to get up early and meet with my Lord in our special spot. I haven't done this for many months and I feared I'd lost it, but no, I only grew in my desire to be fed of His word and to be in His presence. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I love Him more than ever before and I thank Him for the cancer He allowed me to have so that I might be refined and that you might have the joy of seeing how mighty He is! Thank you. Please share how He has blessed you through my suffering. PS I’m anxious to speak, please consider asking me to a women’s/girls event!

For way too long I camped on the fact that my parents divorced when I was five. Truly it was a horrifying, and the fallout certainly contributed to many paths that I desperately needed redemption for, however those same paths made me the woman I am today and that divorce set the stage for a display of forgiveness and acceptance that I would never have known without that break in my family. Now I’m a grown woman with a family of my own and when I go home to Texas to visit my parents, my boys and I have a huge blessing waiting for us. Instead of dividing up times to go between my mom’s and my dad’s homes, what we experience is this: One night my stepmother and my dad host dinner welcoming my mom and her husband, my step mother’s ex-husband and wife (as he is the father of her children), my step-siblings, including my stepbrother’s ex wife and her boyfriend (as she is the mother of their granddaughter), and anyone else who holds an intimate part in the hearts of our family
