Saturday "Not myself"
Sometimes life takes over and you simply are not yourself. And then encouragement from God the Father comes. In the most unusual ways and most unexpected. It was like that for me today when the gracious Lady Pastor from my church sent me a message from God. I take that message to heart because I know God is mighty and there are no mistakes. There are no simple explainations either when at a standstill in our life, the hand of God touches. None of us, myself the most, like to admit depression. How can someone who professes to know and love God be depressed? Surely my faith isn't strong or this dilemma would not exist. I have a wonderful husband, my health and a good family plus my strong strong faith, yet.... I suffer depression. Now the strangest part....how, did my Pastor know what I am feeling??? The only person I have confessed this to is my husband. God makes me humble in many ways. He shows my heart condition to others even when I run away and hide. "Lord I praise and thank you for your unconditional and surprising love.... it is beyond me."

Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens.
