This is a poem I had posted on another blog I have. I posted it several years ago and just saw it again. I wrote it in 1999 when my life was a little more…chaotic and very stressful and I had several other dear friends and family going through a very stressful time too. I thought, perhaps it might serve to encourage others who are in that place today. We all have chaotic and stressful times in our lives when we don’t know if we’ll make it through. Let me reassure you, if you hold onto God and let Him be in charge, let Him give your strength, courage and wisdom, you will make it through! It probably won’t look like the way you think you want it to look or be the way you think you want it to be. Instead, when we let God take over, it will be better than you could ever dream or imagine! God loves YOU! Yes YOU! Even if you say you don’t believe in Him and even if you think you’re too messed up, too smart, too dumb, too whatever, God loves YOU. So. That’s all I’ll say about that. I love all of you and hope you have a good day today!

I'm a native Texan who has lived in Colorado since July 4, 2007. I was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas and worked at Texas Tech University for over 22 years. I have three primary loves: God, people, and life! My chosen career of caring for people is directly linked to these three loves. I love helping people and have a natural knack for it. I believe I have been called to use these loves and skills in my work. I've always felt that and, whether working as an administrative assistant, medical office manager, or as a home caregiver, I work hard to put others first, to assist where I can, and to do so with professionalism and discretion. In my off hours, I become completely enchanted by beautiful words, colors, designs and nature. I love to read, write (especially poetry), and to travel. I also love to crochet and knit, so I’m constantly fighting a too large yarn stash that tumbles out of closets, drawers, and hope chests. My husband and I have been married for over 20 years. From a prior marriage, I have two wonderful grown sons, a delightful daughter-in-law, and a toddler grandson with whom I am completely in love. I wish I could say my blog has only one theme such as crafting or photography or poetry. If my blog has one centralized theme, it is healing. My intent is simple. I want to share my heartfelt love to heal and inspire you, the visitor, to go out into the world each day with good energy, great courage, and love to share with others. View all posts by Dory Lane
