The Joy-Finding Joy in the Coffee Shop Psalm 16:11

Kindly save the dateEven when life is hard if we look around we can see God’s beauty that surrounds us.  It is everywhere.

This week I found beauty in the spring flowers, my children and grandchildren, hearing the birds sing as my dog and I went on one of our many walks and the list goes on.  Thank you God for your beautiful creation.

Finding Joy at the Coffee Shop with Caleb and Maggie March 2019

I like this quote I found by Janice Lewis Clark

“Joy is a gift from God, hidden below the surface of every situation”

Thank you God!

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
