I am writing this blog to share what I have learned and am learning in my journey of losing the life I once knew. The life I once knew ended in February 2013 when my loved one was very unexpectedly sentenced to a double digit year sentence. I never imagined my journey in life would lead me here, but I really don’t think that is what many of us in this situation now ever imagined. From the second I heard the sentence until this very day, I feel like I have been blessed in so many ways and that God has been guiding me. I want to share what I have learned and am learning in hopes that someone out there will feel renewed, invigorated, blessed, and supported as they live each day in this dramatically different reality.
This is not an easy journey. But, at the same time, this does not have to be the most difficult journey. The key is to build a positive support system around you. Hopefully, what you read here can help.
This blog will be filled with stories, devotionals, resources, connections and spiritual blessings. I hope to help you in as much of the way I am being helped spiritually and emotionally while we are all on this side of the gate.
“I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord.” (Psalms 40:1-3 NLT)
