Life is Grace

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do/ with your one wild and precious life?” (Mary Oliver)

It’s been so long since I’ve written anything here, thanks in large part to my old friends the chronic migraines,  I don’t know where to start. I’m completely flummoxed. I do have one bit of news, actually one very large bit of news: I finished my Master’s in Theology!! Until I got the phone call from my advisor telling me I passed my comprehensive exams, I really didn’t think I could do it. 

After all of the  setbacks–shingles (yikes!), depression relapses, chronic migraines, my neck injury, neck surgery, and subsequent neck pain, and good old fibromyalgia–I think I had lost my belief in myself. And strangely, now that I’ve achieved one of my dreams, I feel at loose ends a bit, wondering what comes next? What will be my personal legend, to paraphrase Paulo Coelho?

  2. Love this. Wondered if I should be in ministry at times and how it would mesh with my call to write. God says a day at a time. He’s not through with me yet. Huge congrats.

      Oh, there are so many different ways to be in ministry, and with your gift for words, I’m sure God has plans for you! Thanks for the congrats–I still go into my study and take out my diploma a few times a week to prove to myself that yes, I did it, I really did it!!
