First and foremost I am a child of God. Called and chosen by the Creator Himself; chosen to enhance the kingdom of God through the errors I’ve made and trials I’ve endured by sharing what I’ve been through with others. Without a doubt, I am a work in progress.
I am blessed with a husband, son, daughter-in-law and brand new granddaughter. Sometimes, I am a terrible wife and become extremely selfish and obstinate regardless of Hubby’s feelings. I was terrible at parenting despite my heartfelt efforts and intense love, but he made it through alive. I’m proud of the man he has become.
I have been singing since I was knee-high to a grasshopper; music plays a big part in my life journey. I write songs that were just poems and a tune in my head before I learned how to play the guitar in 2009, and now after an injury to my right hand they are but poems again until I learn the one-handed guitar and/or keyboard). They are my thoughts, feelings, prayers. God uses me as a music missionary because music speaks to the soul. This is how He first spoke to me and now He sends me out to pass it on.
I am a photographer who is addicted to taking pictures of creation and have so many that it would be impossible to develop them all. But the compulsion to take them remains strong, so I continue. I share them in hopes to brighten someone’s day with the beauty that enraptures me.
I try to be honest, loving and do for others as I would want done for me, but I fail often. I am driven by my flesh at times even though I try hard not to be. I am flawed and imperfect even when everything in me screams for perfection and order.
I am blessed beyond grace; He made me on purpose for a purpose; I embrace the woman I am in spite of the voice inside me that tries to lie and say I am not worth it. He made no mistake when He fashioned me. I am exactly who God created me to be.
Welcome to my journey!
