I was going to start a new WordPress page and ditch this old one, but the only reason would be to hide the old me.  So I chose to ‘keep it real’ as my husband likes to say, because it really shows a lot: how much my perspective has changed, how much I have changed since the Lord shook up my life, and made me realize how selfish and unforgiving I was. He has showed me for the first time in my life that despite pain and suffering, ‘His grace truly is sufficient’ (2 Corinthians 12:9).  He also made me realize that even though I was saved at 14, I never really put Him first in my life! Deuteronomy 6:5

It’s great because the only reason I’m reopening this page is so that I can like the writing of a woman in my new hometown.  So thank you Lord for Kris, whom I’ve never met (hope to soon), but talked to on the phone one early morning about the homeschooling community here.

Maybe I’ll take up writing again, but be warned, the stories will be nothing like the previous posts herein!  A lot has happened since living in Brookings…One day, God willing, I will put it all out there, piece by piece, like a tapestry. For now, I’ll just say that “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans’ 8:28. Amen and amen!
