I’m female, in my late 40s, a Christian since the age of 14, widowed from my wonderful (but alcoholic) husband Stephen since 1998, and with 2 wonderful stepdaughters, the youngest Christine who works and lives nearby, while the eldest Caroline is married, and living in Scotland with her husband Euan, and new baby daughter Aoife. Home is East Belfast in Northern Ireland (UK ). I also live with two incredible handreared cats – Tikvah who I reared myself from less than a day old, and Sophie reared by a friend, who’s the same age, and who keep us all regularly amused with their antics. I’m fairly disabled with a host of rheumatic and autoimmune illnesses, but God’s Grace is absolutely sufficient for me, and I am heavily blessed. This blog is just a tiny snapshot of my views of various topics – mostly Christian but also of my health trials and tribulations to encourage others, in particular Christians, who may be equally struggling to find some purpose in their own suffering. To GOD (Yahweh), be the GLORY!
