Orange Slices

Nothing is random. Life is filled with choice.

My life moves forward in the tension, belief in the Creator who intelligently and divinely grants me the dignity of free will while laying out a plan for every breath of my life before I was a heartbeat in a living womb.

Orange Slices is devoted to celebrating the sweetness, pushing back the murky shadows in my peripheral vision and centering on a celebration of life. This year
I am committing one blog a month to a retrospective of goodness.

If you can’t change your fate, change your attitude. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Trust 30

Books, Poetry, Prayer:
Escort Me by Crystal Mahan
B by Sarah Kay
Glass Beach by Jill Marie Landis
Now You're 50! by Brandon Crose
Sea Glass Prayer by Anne Bender

Excellent Choices:
Lunch at Lucy's with my friend DeAna
A baby shower of pink in a most unlikely space
Dinner with Amy, Bryan, Kathryn and my husband Lw
24-hours cocooned with friends in Touched Twice United
Touring Mission Possible, a bricks-n-mortar place of healing
Couples 4 Cards with Vicki, Reggie, Jo Anne and Bill
Touring Altered Ego, a new place of beautiful care and prayer
Chili with friends

and the murky shadows ask what if you forgot someone, offended them?

"Quiet!" I reply for among the gifts is a troll named GRACE for my shoulder.

As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him. Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed. Mark 5:18-20 NIV
