Learning to Live , Again, On Purpose.

Today I was…

I was still and worshipped my Lord and Savior. I closed my eyes and felt the Holy Spirit within begin the healing. The healing of a deep loss.

He was tiny and beautiful. Little hands and feet, whole yet gone. Back home in God’s arms, whole and happy. I miss him, yet he was gone before I met him. I long for him, yet I never held him. He’s home now, where he is whole.

We are healing now, in our own ways. We are gentler with one another, in a way we have not been in a while. His being brought us together and allowed love to slip in and begin to heal wounds that are old and festered. He was the healing, my goodness he was the healing. Did he choose the sacrifice for us, did he come to show us love? No answers here, still.

Today I was quiet, and allowed the Holy Spirit to continue the healing within, that my Grandson began when he left us.

Is this the answer. No, no answers here. Just a thought from a grieving mother and grandmother.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
