White Wednesday



I have had a very emotional week so today here is my addition to White Wednesday it is one thankful for the gift of grace...

My wedding day I sat on these steps waiting while my photographer and friend Frank Salas was giving me direction for each pose as he then decided to capture a shot of my feet since he felt they were so "little girl" of me... how they were positioned as I sat there just waiting...

 As I kept waiting, my mind wandered back to all of the waiting I had done over the years. Waiting to be adopted to finally belong to someone, waiting to fall in love, then waiting for my heart to stop breaking, and as I sat there longer I realized at that moment that day the grace of God was upon me and I was no longer waiting but I was about to begin living...

I had such a tough week full of emotional trials and then I realized last night that Kathleen's White Wednesday   reminds me that "white" is new, it's unmarked, clean as you so call it. A simple reminder that is does not show the past, the pain, its a freshness that calms my soul.

I was given a beautiful gift of "white" this week, a gift of grace from someone here in blogland who gave to me from her heart when I was hurting and I am ever so grateful. Even though I have not met her yet I know one day I will and when we do meet I will see a sea of "white" another dear soul who reminds me that because of grace I am no longer waiting...

Kate, this reminds me how Jesus chose each one of us as his beautiful "Bride", and how we have all been "waiting". Blessings to you today, beautiful Kate. Come by my Bible study if you can.

Aw, I'm sorry you've had a hard week, Kate. Here's to new mercies every morning, eh? And sufficient grace. Beautiful post, beautiful image. Peace to you, friend.

Kate - So sorry for your difficulties and emotional pain. I guess you are gutsier than I am, because you are telling everyone about it. I say this because I have had a very emotional, painful, sad and tearful week also. I just didn't know if I should or could mention it or not. (I've only been blogging 2 months.) Unsure whether to share personal stuff if it is not pink, white, black, fun, happy or pretty. I adore all of that too, of course. Hard to know if you'll run people off.
Anyway, I am praying for you to have a beautiful tomorrow.

Come see my Veterans Day tribute if you can. BTW, I am a follower of yours.

You are such a special soul, dear Kate!
Although I don't know what your situation is, God surely does. It will be my privilege to lift you up in prayer, sweet friend.
If you ever want to talk, please e-mail me and I'd love to talk/pray with you.
