I’m Ba-a-a-ck! At least I think I am! It’s unbelievable to me that I have let this means of communication with you lapse and avoided writing for so long. I hope that there are still a few of you who will read my rambling words, as I fully expect to return to faithful blogging, beginning now. I am not going to go into a bunch of excuses! The fact is that I let myself get too busy, too involved in too many things; and then I got sick. Very sick, and have been in the business of getting healthy again for the past couple of months. I will share details later, as time goes on, but wanted simply to say that God brought me to my knees once again. I am grateful that He loves me enough to chasten and correct me, even though often I question just what He is doing!

I found myself at the beginning one more time, hospitalized, and so weak I was unable to walk across the room. Five years ago it was the same thing, just a different reason! I had just completed my heart surgery and was starting a journey that I chronicled in my latest book, “Signposts”. Someone wisely suggested to me the other day, “Lois, I think you need to read your own book again!” The lessons I learned (or thought I had learned) needed to be revisited. And so, that’s what I am doing.

My hope is that, as I travel another path, you will come alongside and walk with me. On my end I promise to be faithful to share my thoughts and the insights I am receiving from my trip Guide! I am reveling in the truth that He does love me. In fact, my 2019 “Word for the Year” is “Beloved”. I truly need to absorb the fact that I AM His Beloved.

Oh, there is such joy in that! Please join me for the first few wobbling steps next week! Love, Lois
