Take Chances

“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

– Philippians 4:13

Well 2016 was going to be the year of my SMILE! It started off that way.  My divorce was final, I had a place of my own and a job that I loved.  I was walking on sunshine, baby, not a thing in the world was going to bring me down. I was even attending Bible study every week and getting my Jesus on. Joy abound in my heart and in my life.  I was happy, heathy, killing it in the gym, dating, spending quality time with my family, it was like I had finally reached steady, solid ground.  img_3236I mean, for the first time in years I was laughing joyfully on a daily basis and nothing in my foreseeable future was going to bring me down. Oh boy, I was in for a world of hurt right around the corner and had no idea a metaphorical Mack truck was about to turn my life upside down.

Hello All!

Verse of the Day

Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know what I have planned for you,’ says the Lord.  ‘I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope. 

Well here I am trying my hand at WordPress! I have been wanting to share my story on a daily basis for a while now but I must admit getting started has been the hardest part. See I don’t normally like to talk about myself or my feelings very much, but I have a rare condition and I have been through a lot. So maybe by sharing my daily fight I can help or inspire or ignite the passion for someone else struggling with a battle in their life. God has given me so much. I have an obligation to give as much as I can to everyone else. Continue reading “Hello All!”
