In just a little while...

I have waited for the words to come.  A wait which hasn't been easy for this one who finds her expression best in the written rather than the spoken.

And yet, this long pause of keyboard and pen has been necessary. 

For in the days to come, there will be many words, too many I fear.  Because what I have seen from the comfort of my living room, I will soon experience in the rawness of reality.  The images that have been softened for public consumption will become tempered  by the fires of life.

Since the earth began its dance beneath this tiny island in January, I have wanted to go.  In the days to come, March 15 to be exact, my feet will leave the familiar for grace of the unknown. 

I am beginning to understand that my wordless moments have been a needed preparation.  So, I beg for your grace for a bit longer and your prayers for my upcoming trip to Haiti.

  1. Wordless is a time of filling up on Him, HIS words and living in His quiet habitation. It's ok to be quiet. When the words come, we'll be here. See you then.

  2. I will be praying for you. God is going before you to prepare your way. May you feel His comfort and peace as you step out. Be blessed my friend. CC

  3. Many prayers for your trip. We have a friend who was there for a month with a medical team. He is forever changed, I know you will be as well.

  4. Praying even now, Denise. May the Lord bless you and use you powerfully for His Kingdom work!

  5. Thoughts and prayers indeed, and I will be waiting friend, for when the words come. Just clue me in... K?


  6. Praying for your upcoming trip. May the Lord use your heart and hands to touch many for His Glory!

    Sweet Blessings!

  7. No doubt you are right, that He has been preparing your heart in the quiet. Please know you are being added to my daily prayers.



  8. Sweet Friend,

    My prayers begin now dear one. God will use you in profound ways...I am sure of that. May He bless you abundantly with His grace, joy, tender mercies, strength, courage, wisdom and so very much more...His footprints are set before you...He has already made and directed your path and He will surround you wit His presence at all times as you fulfill your heart and His desires.

    Love you,

  9. Your obedience is inspiring sister. Praying for the Lord's guidance, protection and discernment to cover you at all times. I've been busy and I just want to pay you a visit and leave a warm hello. God bless you always. Can't wait what the Lord has in store for you. How awesome to be able to bring and reflect His light in that dark place. Take care sister!
