I have been listening; not with my ears, but with my heart.

This required me to leave all the distractions of life until I could find Solitude.

She wrapped me in her arms and drew me away to a quiet place.


What did I hear?

The gentle voice of God, telling me more about who He is and, therefore, who I am.

Some of my heart’s desires and questions.

I also experienced more healing in my soul: Things that have caused pain for years are gone.


It seems that I am called to meet with God in the home of Solitude rather often.

I think I understand the reason:

It is when we are still that we hear all of the subtle power that is covered by noise.


This is true in nature.

If you want to hear the wind or water flowing; if you want to know the joy of creation’s song, you have to listen.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
