It’s been a really long time since my last post. To be honest, I thought the last post may BE my last post. Last September, we were told that the property we were leasing had been sold, and we needed to move. While we were told by many friends that we had legal recourse and should sue, we decided that our focus should remain up and ahead. Up at God (to find us a new home), and ahead to our future, instead of keeping our focus on the past.
Depending on God
In the end, God did lead us to a new home. The property here is much smaller than the one we’d moved from, and it needed a ton of clean up and work before we even moved in, but we’re grateful for having found it and we’re making it work.
One of the biggest reasons for not writing so long is that I have lacked the words to adequately express what I’d been through, and frankly didn’t know if I could ever type these words…
Shortly after we moved into our new home, my beloved Nadja passed away. She had her rabies booster and within three days, succumbed to a severe reaction to it, despite all attempts to save her. My world stopped spinning. A huge part of me died that day, and I knew I was never going to be the same again. (For those of you who don’t know who Nadja was and why she was so extremely special to me, you can read about her here).
Moving forward from the loss of Nadja is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done; but I asked God for help, and He walked me through it. A part of me will always be missing, and I will always mourn her loss. I’m trying to be proactive in it, however, by dedicating our ministry work to her memory.
In addition to Nadja’s loss, or perhaps because of it, my health took a turn for the worst over these past few months as well. For months I’ve been battling a resurgence of my Multiple sclerosis symptoms. With the decline of my heath, our ministry faced an uncertain future. Once again, I turned to God, gave everything to Him and asked Him to lead me.
In future posts, I will write about what God has revealed to me, as well as the gifts He’s provided for me and my family during this very difficult season.
I am recommitting myself to bringing more natural remedies, recipes, old-fashioned tips and God’s unending love to my readers. I look forward to start hearing from y’all again!
