“Christmas is a reminder that we are not alone.” My aunt shared this quote with me and it resonated within me.
God touched humanity with Jesus—the greatest gift of all. Love came down at His birth. He provided a way to live with HOPE in the midst of despair. To have a FRIEND when everyone turns away. To have STRENGTH in the midst of fear. To have LOVE in the midst of hate. To have FAITH in the midst of turmoil.
HE alone is my Rock, the One who has sustained me through some really, really rough times. He has anchored me when I’ve been adrift and floundering.
I am forever grateful for this Savior who came humbly to walk among us and make a way for us to have lives of fullness and joy, regardless of our circumstances. My heart belong to the One who loves me.
So, who am I? Well, it’s hard for me to put into words who I am. I don’t stop to dwell on it, I just do it, be it, AM it. But…
*I’m an educator at heart–it’s in my blood. From an early age, if I learned it, I told it. Always curious, asking why, learning and sharing. It’s what I do.
*I’m a highly emotional person–lately I’ve identified that as “passion”, and that it’s a good thing. I care deeply about many things–that is also “passion”.
*I’m a late-life mom to two amazing and adorable (adopted) children who have physical, mental, and psychological differences from “typical” children.
*I’m in my “Sensational Sixties” and a bit of a crazy woman.
*I love to tell a good story–so I’m writing to see how those stories come out. I hope you enjoy them, and learn something along the way.
