Today I was at peace.

My plans to visit my uncles were handled by Father God. I was in deep dread, not emotionally ready to deal with my family. This still feels very wrong, yet I know and believe that I am to only lean on God’s understanding of this situation. I am not emotionally or logically able to decipher what to do with all of these souls. So I willingly, willfully leave them to God.

He provided me with escape today. My uncle was having a procedure done and would not have been up to a visit upon his return from the hospital. I pray to God that he, my uncle not be in too much pain, that he not suffer. I realize there are consequence to a life lived like hell. I also know my God to be merciful. My God never wills His children to have pain and misery. I pray my uncle submits to the direction to trust God in this and let God do a work in him. I pray this knowing that my Jesus will petition the Father for me and Father will grant my petition.

Looking up, I give all honor and glory to Father God in all of this. That he will give a state of Grace to my uncle, my aunt, my mother and grandmother too. I pray in all faith, knowing, that mercy and grace are given to all of us in this time of pain and sorrow.

Today I walked in the peace of God. He fought my battles today…

Peace of God

Peace of God

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.
