This morning as we waited for the bus I was blessed with a revelation out of the action of babes. My children and I are used to the bus coming a half hour early. So we have been ready very early. We ventured out to the end of the lane for what was a very long wait.
Our favorite new pastime is listening to a praise song before school. Lately it is accompanied by Mandisa and “It’s a good morning!” We like to start the day danceing to the tune. Their second request this morning was Lead Me to the Cross by Francesca Batisstelli.
As we listened they began to do something which blessed me so much:
Each girl began to be the cross one at a time. Then one of the sisters would lead the other to the cross. When they got there the one being the cross would embrace her all smiles. (I watched them with awe and then had them pose for the photos.)

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others. I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile. Blessings to you and yours, <3Melinda
