Hello my brothers and sisters and friends,

My first blog here was July 3, 2009. Since then I have published 911 posts.  The format has changed a couple of times, but the focus of it has not.  Now I am feeling it is time for a bit of a break to reflect on the next step on the path before me. I will be quiet for a time and return around October 1. This date is not written in stone and it may be later than October 1 when I return…or if I return.

I ask that you pray I will be open and patient while I wait on the Spirit’s leading and teaching.  Pray that I will be receptive to what the Lord has to say to me and that I will be obedient. Some of you who know me “in real life” know how hard it is for me to write that last word.  I have always struggled with rebellion, anger, and being self-centered. Obedience is difficult for this child of God, but He is good and always loving and never forsakes His children while they are on their journey.

During this time, I am opening comments.  If you have any insights please share them. You can also email me if that is more comfortable for you. I long for your prayers and friendship.

Blessings this day of grace, patricia (2)

1 John 1:9 esv


When we have been working hard and are all hot and sweaty
you know how good a cool shower feels.
It cools us off leaving us feeling clean and refreshed.
So it is when we confess our sins; we feel clean, lighter, and renewed.

Are you feeling heavy and dirty with sin?
Do you know God is waiting to shower you with His forgiveness?
Why are you hesitating?

Blessings this day of,patricia (2)
