Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Womanhood - The Fine Line

This painting hangs on display in our local library.  The title is "Womanhood - The Fine Line".  It caught my eye and then caught my heart.  Here is where I am at this season of life...as we all are many times in our life.  The balancing act.  I can relate to this picture in more ways than I can express in words.  This painting truly says more than a thousand words can say.

Last Friday my Savior met our family's needs in the most miraculous chain of events.  We went from the total pit of hopelessness, not seeing anyway out of our situation, to breathing life back into our situation.  In a blaze, that only God can orchestra, our lives were forever changed.  I still can't find the words....so I haven't blogged yet...but it will be coming.

My Balancing Act
Fear and Faith
Strength and Gentleness
Courage and Surrender
Independence yet Dependent
Working and yet Resting
Quiet and yet Shouting
Tears of Joy, in the midst of the Pain
Hurt and yet Healed
Disappointed and yet Amazed

I will be back to tell the story.  As one friend said, "it is going to be raw", but it is my story.  My testimony in the middle of one of the largest testing periods of my life.  May all the Glory go to the one, who showed me what a mighty God I serve.

"Womanhood - The Fine Line" gives evidence to how 'a picture is worth a thousand words'; moving and poignant. Giving praise that the dawn has broken on your dark night.

totally thrilled and hurry on back to share.. I am all ears.. with an open heart..and doing the Happy dance!!!

Debbie said...

I shared your story with my two favorite girl people (Mom and Denise). There wasn't a dry eye in the circle. We praised God together for what He did, has done, and will do.

Could that picture be any better? It isn't a straight line we walk, even a tightrope. It's exactly that: An up and down balancing act.

Struggling here for balance to be honest but I am reminding myself daily that with God, all things are possible for me, even walking in the up and down with balance.

Rebecca said...

What a cliff-hanger post, Janette! You can bet I"ll be back to see. Already I'm praising God...
