The Rebirth of a Blogger

I have been absent from this here blog for quite some time.  When it comes right down to it, I have to say that pain kills creativity.  I have been to hell and back...I feel that way.  It got to the point in my back pain that I couldn't even walk...sit...stand...sleep.  I just about lost my mind!  My mind and heart were in the darkest abyss of despair.  I was fully supported and taken care of by my husband and daughter.  But, life seemed to go on all around me and without me.  I felt that He had forgotten me.  It was in my darkest moment that I began to notice the Lord's tender mercies in my life.  Miracle after miracle began to manifest itself to me.  Perhaps we have to reach that dark pit in order to feel His light.  He pulled me out both physically, emotionally and mentally.  He is real...He lives...and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He loves me.  While I'm not sure I'd say that I am grateful for the experience, I am grateful for the lessons learned and for feeling His influence in my life.

So, after a back surgery on Friday the 13th of all days, I have been reborn physically.  I feel amazing, and I think that it is time for this blogger to be reborn as a writer, as well.  I am searching out and trying to reconnect with my muse now that it is no longer clouded by pain.

Thanks for sticking with me...
