A simple offer

Today, I witnessed people be disarmed by the love expressed in one simple question, “Is there something that we can pray about for you today?” My prayer partner Sandy and I had people burst into tears as this question seemed to travel from the ears to their hearts.

Being prayed for by someone is something that I have experienced in a very intimate way with just a couple of handful of people over the course of my walk with the LORD. Sisters and Brothers who were willing to walk with me in my pain, suffering at the hands of my own sins and feeling the pain of true discipline. When I could not stand or cry out for myself, these dear ones carried me and interceded on my behalf.

To reach out and hold the hand of a stranger, who is my fellow human being, and call upon My Heavenly Father and Creator was a privilege. Understanding what it is like to not be able to call upon God and allowing someone else to do so, it was a great place to be.

To pray is to love someone else right where they are.

In His Love,

First and foremost, I am a child of the Living God who is found as One God in Three persons, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. I have been married to the same man for over 25 years, together we have three adult children. I love my family and God’s and I know that both are trying to love me. Over my lifetime, I hope that I have also been a good friend, faithful citizen of the Kingdom, thoughtful, kind, open, and that I will continue to do so by God’s grace. If you were to look at my weekly calendar, you might describe my life as diverse so no one can stick me in the Christian box or the recovery box or any box for that matter. People don’t belong in boxes anyway. I am grateful to be human. I enjoy living in New England. I love a great game of golf, catching a sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean, a good book, to write with pen and paper, fruitful conversations, to sing and dance, to walk. One of my signatures in this life is my laugh and I love to “sign.”
