Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Thanks for joining me for this blog series - inspiration to write. Over the next week or so I will share something or someone that is an inspiration to me and my writing. While yesterday was a general "you", today's inspiration is a bit more personal.
As I travel to Oswego during the week I pass these trees with orange ribbon tied to them. To the average passer-by, you might think this is a tree marked to be "cut" or "removed" yet it's significance is greater than imminet death by chainsaw - it is a ribbon of remembrance. Each year this family changes the orange ribbon hugging their trees - one on either side of the road as a way of remembering my sister Heidi Allen.
I might start my drive with errands or random thoughts and then I see these two orange ribbons witnessing the love and hope for Heidi. Simple ribbons used to show a family's hope, encouragement and love for a missing teen and her family. I write because of people like this - their hope is my inspiration.
Thank you for caring and sharing! These are only two photographs yet I know I've seen other ribbons on trees, buttons and jackets throughout the years - thank you for remembering my sister! Continue to pray she comes home! God hears our prayers.
