Welcome! I’m Christine. I hope that when you read, you’ll feel as if you’re having coffee with a friend. (who does all of the talking) Strap on your seatbelt, because sometimes it can be a wild ride!
I’m a woman with ordinary ups and downs, and I’m constantly seeing God at work around me. This is a place where I reflect on life and journal my insights. It kind of helps me from telling the same story over and over again…but sometimes not.
Posts include my personal journey in life as someone who loves God and believes that I’d be dead without His mercy toward me. My life was a train wreck before I declared my dependence on God and began a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ.
Before I gave my life to Jesus I struggled with addiction to alcohol, drugs, and destructive relationships. Since then, my life has been like many of yours; valleys, mountaintops and everything in between. The difference is that during my ongoing struggles with depression through the years, I have hope and I know that when I don’t have the strength to hold on to God, He is still holding on to me.
I’m not claiming to have it all together, but I’m pressing on and I marvel that God is actively at work in my heart, freeing me more and healing me from past hurts.
I have a chronic condition that causes vision impairment and cognitive issues at times. It can be a struggle and has its dark times, but I am learning experientially the goodness of God in life’s disappointments.
You’ll read about my family; I’ve been married for twenty three years (🎉) to an amazing man and we have two adult children.
We’re new to the empty nest life and I’ve gotta say….It has it’s perks!
