Lord, today we give you our burdens, one by one, until you’ve heard them all. We let go of the burdens and we hold on to you. We trust you to keep us steady. Amen 🙏❤️
Lord, we look to you for our direction, help and approval. No one else can even compare. You alone are God. Amen.
Lord, help us lend a helpful hand, a listening ear and a smile of love to those we meet today. Amen.
Lord, we rejoice when we feel your presence and we declare you are our God. Amen.
Jesus, please do what only you can do in our lives today. Amen
Thank you for the gift of wisdom. Help us pause long enough to hear you. Amen.
I was gifted with a curious mind. I can be easily pulled away from the wiser choice in pursuit of something new and shiny. If you are too, let this prayer cover you. Jesus, help us keep our focus on You and trust in the path you have us on. Thank you!
I completed my goal to create 365 daily devotion (memes) this year. I sought one word a day and searched the bible to find context for how that word reflects God’s goodness. I am forever changed by this experience.
I lost my central vision in 2017. It was devastating because it led to additional losses; my career, my mobility, even my identity was shaken. My first year was a daily struggle to understand what I was seeing. Faces were hard to recognize, reading felt impossible and i spent most of my time at home – which was comfortable but also confining.
At the end of 2018 I wanted a daily challenge, like a “job”, that would both challenge me to work to overcome my visual loss and create something positive for the world around me. That’s how this blog began, first through prayer and then through daily action. I found so much healing on this path.
Today my vision has not improved nor worsened. Its been stable. I rely on my peripheral vision to read, write, navigate and to enjoy the beauty around me. I am slow but steady. I bring my humor with me wherever I go 😀 it helps me move through the inevitable misinterpretation I will encounter. Like walking past my son at the grocery store without acknowledging him. 😎 i have tons of funny stories I could share. Another time.
I’m changing the focus of my blog a little next year and I hope you’ll join me again for the journey. Dailybite 2020.
My last word for 2019 is humble praise to ,my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.To glorify God is to love his Son. Father God, I give you glory!
