Zelda: I’m just an old woman playing the last act of my life in the Presence of the One True God, who calls me “beloved” as He pours out His daily grace and mercies…and whatever else I need.
To know the Good Father and Lord Jesus more intimately each day, to hear the beauty of their voice and feel the Holy Spirit’s cool assuring breath when Life’s desert wind parches soul…it’s indescribable, worth more than anything and everything the world offers.
Faith and Humor are mostly what pushed/pulled me to shore, a beached whale nearing 70 years of battling depression/anxiety. (“The battle belongs to the Lord”*, thus I’m still here.)
Though I’m a card-carrying Recluse I do take one journey every year…to the same place. It’s always an amazing trip, never gets dull, as I’m continually seeing something fresh and wow-wonderful—in The BIBLE. No kidding, nor preaching…just ‘telling you about the author’.
The One Year Bible, in various translations and online—is arranged in daily portions from both Old and New Testaments, Psalms and Proverbs. It takes only as much time as you want to spend, and by year’s end you’ve read through the whole Bible…having done it for a number years now, I’m thrilled anew because I remember more than I expect to!
Faith in Jesus Christ isn’t a magic wand, God’s not Santa Claus…and I’m no cookie-cutter saint (way too moody). GOD absolutely DOES STILL HEAL TODAY…and, that I’m a mess doesn’t mean I’m a total Christian “failure”. God seeds bountiful treasure in the darkness, and I’m ever harvesting a bumper crop!
I’m a genuine-authentic writer of “stuff” loosely defined as poetry (and short fiction)🙂 You’re welcome to hang around…you might like the music, and may catch some Light and Hope between the lines.
FYI: unless otherwise credited, ALL text and images are my meager possessions—please ask first, if you’d like to borrow them.
Important Note: I’m not here to collect stats, seriously—so I’d prefer that blogs which are selling services or vacation property, or any other thing, Please DON’T FOLLOW me. Thank you🙂
If you have respectful questions, leave them here and I’ll try to answer them🙂
Lacking duct tape, I tend to ramble on…so additions to this page may be posted in future.
May God bless you bountifully! Zelda💝
*“This is what the LORD says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s… Take your positions; then stand still and watch the LORD’s victory. He is with you… Do not be afraid or discouraged.” 2 Chron 20:15-17, New Living Translation
