The last few years as my children (I have 2 sons) have graduated college, married and moved away, I've been asking God what he would have for me in this next season of my life. I despise the term 'empty nest', because I want my nest to be full-full of life, love, laughter and joy. Is my life to be a barren desert with hot-flash winds blowing tumbleweeds because my kids now have lives of their own? The Lord has emphatically said "NO Karen, fill your life to overflowing with me." John 10:10-I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." So this is the journey I'm on; living an abundant life. Now I'm not talking about a life full of things to buy, places to visit,a schedule packed full of busyness-in fact, those are things I need to limit, there is no satisfaction to be found in them. God is leading me to just the opposite>a wide-open life that he will fill to overflowing with purpose,love, laughter and joy.
I'm a woman of faith, a wife, a mother, a granny, a friend-in that order.My purpose in life to to follow, worship, and serve Jesus. My mission is to love those closest to me and those God has put on my path, well really, everybody.
