Since May 2011, this blog has been a way for me to share that experience with all of you. Thank you for reading and responding. I think that the time has come for me to close this blog down for a little while and renovate. I love to write, but I no longer want what I share to focus on the pain of the past and my family's journey through the valley. I want to look forward and celebrate God's faithfulness, the support of true friends, and the joy of new beginnings.
Inside the bracelet that Faye gave me that fateful Sunday morning are inscribed the words, "I am strong." I've not felt strong on many days during the past months. Still, my testimony is that God gives me the strength I need, that His strength is made complete in my weakness.
Adventures like this don't really end. Every chapter of life is connected to what precedes it and what follows. But I pray for grace to turn the page, to put the worst of the past behind me, learn its lessons well and live a more abundant life. I guess I am a survivor. I hope that you will be one too.
