Even though you know death is approaching, nothing ever can prepare you for when it comes. I am thankful for the peace and love of God during these times.
On August 7, we lost a great matriarch of our family, Verna Lee Edwards, my granny. I have always known that I come from a strong line of women, and these past two weeks have proven it to me in an even greater way. If you read Proverbs 31:10-31, you will see a glimpse of what kind of woman my granny was like. She was all of that, and so much more to me. There is nothing I could write that could describe how I am feeling right now, and how much she will be missed by all of us. It gives me great comfort knowing that she is gazing upon the beauty of the Lord right now and feeling no pain, and enjoying her eternal life with Papa, in the Kingdom of God.
You have left a great legacy in our family, Granny. I can hear our Father say, "Well done, good and faithful servant," as He places a crown upon your head. I love you forever and always.
"God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart."
This morning as I lay in bed trying so hard to go back to sleep, (because I know I need it) all I could feel was the pain in my stomach. All I could see in my mind was a big ball of yarn in multiple colors that was knotted together with no end, and no beginning. These knots represent so many questions that are going through my mind right now. Continue reading
I often do not know how to start out any post I write, and this one is no different. Well, actually, it is different. It is different because it is about my granny. My grandmother, or "granny," as we call her, has been given days to live Continue reading
Yesterday I went mountain biking and I made a big mistake! Now that the park is closing earlier, we were not able to park where we sometimes do at the trail head. We only had an hour to ride, so we decided to park at the bottom and take the connector trail up to the main trails that we wanted to ride.
I have been way off track in my eating habits lately. Why is it that I can be going along and doing so well, then BAM! KAPOW! I am eating sweet things like there is no tomorrow. It’s like, I know it starts happening but I don’t stop it. Is this binge eating? Continue reading
This actually wasn’t meant to be a blog post. I was starting a letter to someone, but it went in another direction.
There is a question that has been on my mind a lot lately. One that I have been asking myself, and the Lord. I can’t seem to get an answer, or if I do, I don’t hear it. I ask myself if I am okay? Is it normal that I do not desire to be in leadership anymore? That I do not desire to preach, teach, or prophesy? I ask if this is normal,because at one time it is exactly what I did.

My husband emailed me this video today and I laughed practically the whole time while I watched it. Why? Because it reminded me so much of our earlier rides together when I was just learning. Don’t get me wrong, I am still learning, but I have come a long way from last year. Whoever made the video reversed the roles. Probably to keep a lot of arguments from breaking out with couples. LOL
