I was so honored to be part of my pastor’s sermon on grief this past Sunday. I was honored and also extremely anxious!! It’s hard to tell our stories, isn’t it? I’m not sure why I have such a desire to tell others my story. I hope to get a dialogue started about our journeys. That’s for sure. I hope to inspire, not necessarily through me, but through what I’ve learned, so I guess that’s a big part of it.
When my pastor asked if I would be part of the sermon, I agreed, but definitely started having feelings of anxiety!! The topic of grief is so emotional. Everyone is dealing with a different situation and a different relationship. My concern came from wanting to make sure that my part of the sermon was clear and without mistakes which could take away from the meaning and purpose. (I hope that makes sense).
Here is the conversation with my pastor. He did such a great job preparing and leading this discussion!!! He made me feel so at ease, and I’m so grateful!!

And now, here is my precious Godwink.
First, in case you aren’t familiar with the term, let me explain a Godwink!!
“A Godwink is what some people would call a coincidence, an answered prayer, or simply an experience so astonishing that it could only have come from God.” from Beliefnet.
So as I stood in church Sunday singing the last song before I was called up, I sang “It Is Well” with a grateful heart. Thank you, God, for caring so much about me!!!
