If you're reading this for the first time, welcome to my blog!
Over the past few years I've used this blog as a sort of diary, putting into words some of my experiences and what I've learned in the process. Out of fear and uncertainty, I haven't shared it until now (November 2019) but am choosing to do so because I feel it is what God is asking me to do. Because I am cheap and unwilling to pay a monthly fee to have more editing choices, I can't change the order of the posts. If you wish to go to the start of my blog and follow chronologically, you'll have to scroll down and go to the previous page. My first post is called "In the Beginning". The posts may make more sense if you read it this way.
In these posts, I have and will continue to share times of struggle and joy as a wife, mother, and daughter of the King. I'm not a theologian or spiritual titan and do not claim to "have it all together" or "know it all". I'm simply a grateful follower of Jesus, on a journey to serve and love Him.
I desire to share my stories in humility and truth, and perhaps in the process give others a window into my life that they may not have otherwise been able to see. I also pray you may find some encouragement, for I know we all carry our own heavy burdens in this life. Perhaps you yourself have a chronic illness, physically or mentally and too are trying to live in the midst of the storm, or maybe you're a care-giver or family member trying to support someone with poor health. I hope and pray that God will use my humble experiences to reach even one person who may feel alone or hopeless, whispering reminders that we can have joy amongst the sorrow and peace in the pain.
My prayer is that God will receive all the Glory, and this blog will be honouring to Him.
