As a young wife and mother of three who unexpectedly became a divorced, single mom, these have been redefining years. In the midst of sorrow, our household became whole again, defined by God's daily Grace and Provision. And now, as my children are growing up and moving out of my home, my role is again being redefined. These are days of learning to live fully in what is in front of me today, of learning to be okay with an unknown future, and of finding contentment and strength to praise, even when God whispers "no" or "wait" to the desires of my heart.
I am grateful for the chance to share my story here at Neighborlies- and hope that others glimpse God's grace in our lives and find a little hope for their own. I won't pretend that being a single mom is easy-or that for a moment I like it...but day upon day, life is good because God's hand is all over it.
