Three major pushes have brought me to the risky, yet hungry place where I join thousands of others who long to write a blog.
PIECE # 1 ~ God’s Pursuit God has been pursuing me since I was born, but I began to notice His pursuit around the end of the 1990’s. He daily continued to seek me, whether I was willing and eager—or not. He continues his pursuing. I now realize that I want Him to never stop. I began to write journal responses and prayers on my laptop in response to studying God’s Word almost 15 years ago. It was my way of responding to God’s pursuit. This is still a daily relationship. The more I discover the more I want to know. I don’t do well when it doesn’t happen.

New Time It’s been almost eight years since I let go of a lifetime job as an educator in our public schools. I love teaching. It took 38 years of learning from my students and my colleagues to become what many others deemed as a master teacher.
I lived, breathed, and often ate being a teacher. I never once thought that I was wasting my time or that my work was something I no longer wanted to do. It was for me 24/7. I never felt like I was ‘done’ learning. But…now I have all this time, with a continued need to express myself that came so often as an educator.
And the whisper of God began…
“Tell others. Use technology.“
I have heard that quiet, still voice of God before. He has always chosen very, very few words:
“She will be OK.” , or
“He’s on a journey to freedom.” , or
If I were to put the message He has wanted me to share into one simple statement it would be this:
“Don’t sit on what you believe. ~ Act on what you believe. “
That’s why this blog is called…
Reflect His Light! Get His work done!
and… there is a another piece:
