During these months of lockdown, I have used the time to work on my blog. Well, I guess, maybe I should say, work on my business. It is more than simply the blog. It has been
- who I write to?
- what do I have to say to you?
- How am I going to communicate it?
- On what platforms do I plan to get it out?
In the middle of working, I have had a number of roadblocks including issues with my modem/router (not sure which…replaced them) and a host of tech problems, some of which I resolved, some of which I have on my list to resolve. What you see here is a picture of the person I write to. But many of you are parts of that woman.
You may not be older, but you are lonely. Your awareness, as a believer in Christ, that He is embracing you and is present with you, is totally absent. Does that mean that it isn’t true? Of course not! It’s a lot like being in a dark room. There is a lot there that you can’t see. But when you turn on the lights…! Oh my! He is there. Right next to you! You may have something different you identify with here. That doesn’t mean this won’t be a place for you. It’s just that the person I write to is this older woman. I’m glad for you to listen in too.
Where do I go from here?
I’ll probably start writing once a week and talking once a week on the blog, so I can get a few other things done that need to be done. Down the road, I need to start a monthly newsletter, but it will be a bit before I can do that. I have too many things to get in order first.
As a reminder, here is the purpose for my website:
Many older women feel lonely as they struggle with grief & loss,
I help them become aware of GOD’s embrace & His presence with them
As they learn to find hope in Him &
Realize this isn’t the final chapter of their story.
I will be reorganizing things a bit so you can find what you want easier. As changes are made, i’ll keep you updated.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
I awake, and I am still with you.
Psalm 139:16-18 ESV
