Hi, I’m a stay-at-home-Gram! Born and raised in the south, my dad named me after the heroine of the 1939 movie, “Gone with the Wind.” My days are filled with the aroma of poopy diapers, running up and down ditches, relocking locks or unlocking locks, and praying to be smarter than a 2-year-old, yet, most days failing miserably. I don’t have it all together. In fact, I’m still sorting through miles and miles of red tape that was accumulated during anxious years and thriving panic eruptions, besides suffering from the major “sin”drome of perfectionism, and never, ever feeling as though I could measure up! But regardless of the thorns that pricked my heart along the way, the Lord strategically placed blooms across my path to give me a hope and a future!
I now can Praise God from a hopeful heart because He makes all things work for good, He gathers the ashes and makes something beautiful from them (in His time), and He is a redeemer of years (Romans 8:28; Isaiah 61:3; Ecclesiastes 3:11; Joel 2:25) I LOVE that! I also LOVE how the Bible is so applicable for whatever touches us. “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through the perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:4 & 13). I’m hoping you know that hope! If not, I would love to share it with you. Never feel alone, never lose hope. God is always waiting for you! And, if you feel so led, I would love for you to journey along with me as I make my way through the “red tape,” always hopeful!
Who am I? Proud mother of three adult children, adoring grandmother of one, dazzling wife to Rodney for thirty-seven years – a pastor’s wife for twenty-five of those years, and now a doctor’s wife; I love it! 😉
