Yesterday it rained buckets...pails...cats...we already had dogs. Anyway it RAINED! From watching the weather channel it looks like most of the United States is having crazy weather. It looked like March doldrums yesterday. Then in the early morning hours it started to snow. When we looked outside today all of the muddy brown depressing goo was gone transformed into a beautiful canopy of white snow. I know most people probably aren't too happy about snow when they are looking forward to Spring, but somehow it was a relief today. We are still watching for the flooding to happen and we are so thankful that we are safe but I think the idea of flooding and mud and people possibly losing their homes just seemed to be put on pause for a short spell today as we looked out at the wonder. I always think of the Bible verse, He washed me whiter than snow when I look out at that cleaned up landscape with sparkling diamonds. Whiter than snow...man that is one cleaned up heart! And only God would be able to make such a transformation.
I'm a daughter, sister, wife, and mother of three, also a mother- in- "love" to two lovely young women, and grandmother. And I am excited to announce a new son-in-"love". We just celebrated our daughters wedding! I love to write. I dearly love God and am amazed that I can barely understand how much he truly loves me. I hope to be a compassionate person that tries to be a help to others. I have many health difficulties, such as Fibromyalgia, Arnold Chiari Malformation (which I have had surgery to decompress the malformation) and Sjogren's. I want to be known as a person who loves others, who tries to be kind, who has a deep faith in God, who is just so totally in love with my family, and did I mention my beautiful grandsons? I want to be more than a label of chronic illnesses, but even though that is a difficult part of my life, I also want to be a listening ear, or empathetic heart, to others who suffer from these same difficulties. Well, that pretty much sums up me!
