At the beginning of this week I started an on-line blogging course. I guess it is about time since I have been doing this since last summer. The learning curve has been steep through this whole blogging adventure. If you can bear with me, I will get there.
I also realized that even though a number of you, my readers, know me personally, some of you might not. My “About” page gives you a bit of my purpose for blogging but unless you spend a lot of time reading my posts, you won’t know that much about me. I hope this rectifies the situation.
I am a forty-something Jesus-serving woman from Southern Ontario, Canada.
I am married to my ever-patient husband, Pete.
I have 6 kids–5 on earth and 1 in Heaven. The kids range in age from 7 to 21 years old.
We have a son with high-functioning autism.
We have boy/girl fraternal twins.
My daughter, Arlynne, had just turned 16 years old when she died in an ATV accident in North Ontario while on a missions trip.
My husband and I are living through his addiction to pornography.
I started blogging just before the third anniversary of my daughter’s death. I wanted to share some of the hope that I have experienced amidst the pain of life. My blog could easily have only been about Arlynne but it can’t be. My life is more than that. That is only a bit of the picture.
Above everything else, my desire is to glorify my Father God through everything I do. HE is the reason I can get up every morning. HE is my peace. HE is my hope. HE is my redeemer. I can’t do anything except through Him.
And HE desires it.
