The best laid plans.
Hi Fellow Christians:
I know I said I would start writing on Monday, but what is that popular saying,
"we make plans, and God laughs."
Anyway, I am now ready to begin. But you know what. This blank page before me
has suddenly become very intimidating. I wonder if you all felt that way the first time
you tried to write for the world.
Two years ago, I went through a very dark time in my life, and I never thought I would
get better. Grief and depression is a very difficult road to travel on. But I found myself
on that road two years after my Dad died. I thought I was just fine and then about
two years later, the dam broke. All that pent-up anger came out. But unfortunately
I was never able to get out of that stage of grief. Finally, I reached the conclusion that
I needed professional help. I had a wonderful counsellor, and with her help and
the grace of God I am now myself again. It has been a difficult journey back, but
I have so much to be thankful for. I feel as though I have been given a second
chance at life, and now I want to reach out and help other people who are hurting.
Everyone at some time in their life has been in a dark place. Maybe you are going
through a difficult time right now. But whatever your situation, I would like to share
my blog by bringing words of peace and hope and maybe a laugh or two to all who
This is not going to be a daily journal like so many other blogs. It is a reflection of a
spiritual journey and finding God in the chaos of everyday life.
Have a good day. May God's peace be with you.
