My sentimental journey

An ordinary girl's walk with an extraordinary God.

A Heavenly Home

It’s been four months since our oldest son moved into his home making him a first time home buyer, as we rejoice in his accomplishment our hearts are thrilled in the fact he is just a hop, skip and a jump away from our house.  Being merely one block away, his home positioned on the very same street that my husband Kevin lived on when we were just friends.

Over thirty years ago I traveled down that very street to drop Kevin and his roommate off after attending my first college career meeting at a new church. Recently divorced, battling an eating disorder, and not sure if I would ever marry again or be blessed with children, my life seemed overwhelming and my future looked bleak. Never in a million years could I have fathomed what God had in store for me and my future family down that very road!

Thank you Father that, “You are able to carry out your purposes and to do super-abundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams. Ephesians 3:20  May we trust in a God that is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, The A to Z and everything in between. Being forever faithful as we depend on you.

Hello my name is Lisa,.it would be so delightful to sit down with you swapping life's stories..Reveling in God's goodness,sharing our battles won and those we still are fighting. Finding sacred ground together in heartbreak, redemption , forgiven and blessed hope that promises not to disappoint us. A little about me ... I love God with all my heart stumbling along the way as I do , I talk a lot but still covet listening, Laughter and being creative are not options for my soul would wither with the lack of them. My husband Kevin and I have been married for 27 years and blessed with two boys Derek 22 and Trent 19. It's been 22 years since I worked outside of the home some of those twenty-one years were spent homeschooling, coupon clipping and keeper of the Jennings household. Counting it pure joy to watch our amazing boys turn into outstanding young men.While this earthen vessel laden with cracks and flaws by God's intentional grace and renewed strength made it through. A touch of God's redemption from past misfortunes that included surviving sexual abuse, a failed first marriage, eating disorder, panic attacks, intense gripping fear and crushing low self esteem. Drawn to a God that can right wrongs, bring beauty where ashes once laid ,all the while lovingly speaking His worth and value into weary, parched souls. So that we can not only survive as victims but thrive as a people walking in glorious victory, blazing a trail of freedom for anyone held in chains of injustices, personal failure or loss. So thankful God is all about new beginnings, fresh starts and slates wiped clean.. our past misfortunes merely spring boards of new found hope and deep abounding joy ... it's a privilege to be a fellow sojourner in this path to greater wholeness and liberation. Charles Dickens writes "Reflect on your present blessings every man has many, not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some". Celebrating present and future Heavenly blessings with you
