sharing my story
Just a few things I have been thinking about this week...
Someone asked me to share my story. To share what God has been teaching me over the last year. Wow. Where do I start? God has been teaching me so many life-changing things. But, what are the BIG things that I keep going back to since loosing Cora?
I was talking to a friend about all of this. Trying to collect my thoughts. I wanted to share my story in a way that was meaningful and purposeful, but how do I do that? My friend reminded me of something that is so true. Something that I think I often loose sight of. My story is not powerful. It is a tool that can be used to share truth; a tool that can be used to share God's indescribable hope and grace. But in and of itself it is not life-changing. What is powerful is God's truth. I feel so relieved when I think of sharing my story in that perspective. That is very freeing to me. All I have to do is be faithful to share. God will do the rest. He is the one who is life-changing.
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you
to give the reason for the HOPE that you have.
1 Peter 3:15
I have been pretty emotional this week, just thinking through loosing Cora and how far God has brought me to where I am now. I haven't felt much like writing on my blog. I have just been thinking and reading and praying. A lot. But it has been so good for me to look back on God's faithfulness over the past year. It has been good for me to write down my thoughts. It has been good to read the Word and be reminded of some of God's truths that carried me through this year. I hope to share more with you soon. But for right now, that is where I am at this week.
And just in case you are wondering about Mr. Levi, he is doing good. He is getting quite the personality and we are loving watching him grow. The weather around here has been crazy. Last weekend we were bundling Levi up to go out in the snow. One day this week it was beautiful and felt like spring. Now it is rainy and windy. Yuck! This girl is ready for some sunshine.
I'm sure you have figured this out, but Cora's is sold out. I've received some e-mails asking where the dresses are. Everything is gone. Sorry. I am working on getting all the orders packaged up this weekend. Hopefully we will be able to re-stock soon. Thanks for keeping us so busy!
Okay, I have to go cheer on the Wildcats now. Go K-State!!
