It’s easy

I’d like to say it’s been an easy transition.  I’d love to say it’s been real, these 12 years. However, the life of a person that’s been redeemed from many things outside of the third, fourth generation Christian is sometimes…hard to explain.  Sometimes we don’t speak your language…..please be patient…….Most don’t understand…it’s foreign to them.  I’ve lived a life.  What can I say?  I’ve lived a life outside the safe confines of “Christendom”.   I have lived. I have experimented, I have lost. I have lived hard sometimes.  But the beauty is, the Creator of the world met me.  He stepped into my world and rocked it.  He said to me, “Mindy, you are loved.  You are beautiful, and you are mine.”  I am brought to tears at times for the realness of these words.  I am thankful.  I am desperately trying to teach the ones in my care the truth of them.   And there are days that I am in awe that He would even bother.  But He does.  For you. For me.  For us all.

It’s funny how life can put things into perspective.  It has been an odd year, I won’t go into detail.  There have been tragedies and triumphs, gain and loss.  And, I am writing today because I am thankful.  I am thankful for the things that have perhaps on the surface, seemed “bad”…..because they have freed me in ways that I cannot even express.  I am thankful for every breath.  Every tear.  Every friend….I look forward with excitement to the things to come and carry with me the scars that prove I’ve been in a battle.  Battles are good.  Battles and scars show you what you are made of, that you have LIVED.  We scrap and fight only to see that the One who made us, has carried us all along.  And for that I am thankful.  Moving on.
