My dear friends,
It is with great joy and excitement to share the new design and purpose of “Blessings, Suzanne” with you today! You can bookmark the new website at http://www.blessings-suzanne.com …welcome to the new adventure!
First things First…
Thanks to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who put this vision in my heart a long time ago and has surrounded me with His love, encouragement, strength, mercy, grace and peace..with Him, every day is a blessing! For me, to write is to breathe, to share is my greatest joy! “…He that began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
I want to say a huge thanks to Heather McKelvey with Main Street Web Development. who I knew upon our meeting years ago, that she was the one God had picked to take the blog to the next level when the time was right! A few months ago,with such a busy schedule as a wife, Mom of teenagers, working full time, church and ministry, etc, it became apparent that I needed to take some time off from writing on my current blog. I needed to turn my soul’s focus on God, Family and Work. In that Order.
During that time, God made it clear that now is the time to create a “fresh start” in many areas of my life. I am thankful that Heather was secured to begin work on the website, trained me well (am a work in progress, worked hard on getting all the “behind the scenes” functions in place and totally, totally went beyond my expectations on the design..it turned out beautiful! The new format will take some getting used to but change is good, change is growth and what blooms from these changes is limitless…with God all things are possible!
Thanks to you, the reader for following along my journey that began nine years ago with a breast cancer diagnosis..from caringbridge journals to blogspot and now to http://www.blessings-suzanne.com! My prayer is that this can be a place you continue to find hope, inspiration and truth in your faith from my reading about my life experiences and encounters with Jesus Christ. A place for insightful information and resources for a cancer diagnosis and recovery process, most of all hope as you go THROUGH. And a place to share ideas about home decorating, family and keeping your spiritual house in order! If you are new here…Welcome!
So, here we go, friends…on a new blogging adventure! It’s like riding a bicycle.. I am jumping on..balancing myself, one foot on the pedal, then the other and off we go! Oh and of course, I would have a basket of flowers on the front..smile! Remember to give those flowers (kind words, encouragement, love) while people are living! I am happy to be alive, pedaling down the road of life with goals set for great and mighty things to come! To God be the Glory.
Here is an excerpt from my daily journal on Wednesday, June 13, 2018
Holy Spirit, I heard these words when I woke up this morning…
“My peace I give you, not as the world gives.” It’s true. PEACE. Because you are
peace, Lord. BOLD. Because you are bold. ACTION. Because you act. CHANGE.
Because you call for change. LOVE. Because you love. FIGHT. Because you are
fighting the battles. Glory to you, Jesus. My heart and soul-smiling so big right now.
When I opened “Streams in the Desert” to read my devotion for today..there was the
confirming verse of what you had woke me with “My peace I give you.” John 14:27
PEACE-IT’S A GIFT FROM THE LORD.
Have the best day!
