Much has changed since the last time I updated my ‘about’ section here. My life is largely about change, and I have learned to adapt to that. Not without kicking and screaming at times, or at the very least, digging my heels in. 🙂 The last update was 3 years ago though, so it’s time.
If you were around before, you can see from the picture that I’m older. That happens. It’s normal, so don’t gasp too loudly and choke on your cheerios or anything. 🙂 My eyes and ears don’t work as well as they once did, I moan and groan when I move around a bit more, but I am incredibly blessed in the midst…and exceedingly thankful to God above. He doesn’t seem to love me any less, and I cannot help but love Him more and more as the time passes along.
If you were here in the beginning, you know that I started this blog just for me to have a place to put my thoughts. Sometimes it was random thoughts, sometimes poetry, sometimes I posted abstract art that I created with the wonder of photo shop. Sometimes I ranted and raved, and other times I was more congenial…I hope mostly congenial.
Life got busy, I had many health issues that have occurred over the last several years. But now, thankfully, they are under control. Much to my disliking, I am a veritable pharmacy now. I never even liked taking over the counter medication, but find myself having to be good and take a handful of various prescriptions a day now. It’s okay though. It’s better than the alternative, which was much pain and anguish. I believe that God sometimes heals us through His own miraculous touch, and other times He does it through the skill of doctors. Ultimately, we will all eventually reach our expiration date anyway. No, I’m not being morbid. It’s not morbid to speak of death when one knows that one’s expiration date is only for the shell on the outside. My soul belongs securely to my Lord, and I look very forward to the day when I will meet him face to face. Until then though, there is always blogging to help us get through it all. 🙂
Thank you very much for stopping in, and I hope you’ll visit often!
Love and blessings,
