2001 has been a tumultuous roller coaster year for me, and through it all, God has shown Himself faithful and trustworthy.. even tho’ much of the time, life didn’t make sense, I held on by blind faith.. the past few days, I’ve used my time to update my boy’s web page, and it was nice to re-read the stories of his early years… I’ve also got my computers at home networked together, so they can both be online at the same time sharing one phone line.. I put an online ad for pen pals on digitalcity.com last week, and have gotten a handful of responses (hello visitors!) – I do pretty good in replying to them, usually referring them to my web site to get a bigger picture of various items that I’d be interested in conversing about.. that’s pared down the pen pals to a few.. I think there are many people who are happy with chit-chat and small talk, and you know what, they’re a dime a dozen.. you can get that anywhere(!), but to get a substantive meaningful conversation about life, those are harder to find.. and then, if you’d like to have heart-to-heart conversations where people are open and honest, transparent and vulnerable, well, good luck :) I’ll reiterate here that I uphold an “open book” policy, that I let my life show, inside and out, nothing to hide, as a testimony to what God can do in this little person.. happy new year!

You can buy Amish handmade products online (hmmm.. I thought the Amish didn’t use electricity, so who’s putting their products online?)

well loved

I have a relationship with the Creator, not the creation or creatures or things made by creatures; and that means eternal and infinite wisdom and power to know my place and peace to exist and act upon creation and creatures.

I’m so well loved by my shepherd, my savior, he would do anything for me because he did do anything for me. The peace that comes from that, yields the freedom – to do all things, to fill my desires, as I delight in Him, as I obey Him, as I walk with him. Words redefined so much more richly and freely and empoweringly. See the world thru the lens of grace..

no more expectations of me; no more beating myself up.. themes that have been repeated thru several mentors now..
