Someone for You to Meet – Blossom Tip 16

Say “Hello, Blossy” to our newest member of She Blossoms! She’s walking a tightrope in this drawing, and I suspect she’ll be even more adventurous as she blossoms.


Someone for You to Meet – Blossom Tip 16



Blossy was born during my week of solitude over the Christmas break — though her seeds were planted weeks ago. Maybe months. She’s my mascot/mouthpiece, my creative girl, my Blossomy way of sharing encouragement, hope, and faith.

She’ll bring you a new message every week. If you join our She Blossoms Facebook Group, you’ll see her every day.

On the serious side

A reader emailed me last week, sharing a little about her sister’s death. It was a tragic loss that is incomprehensible and heartbreaking. My reader said she’s having trouble finding resources to help her understand why God doesn’t step in and prevent terrible situations.

In Why Doesn’t God Intervene to Protect Us?, I share ideas that help me cope with loss and grief.

Email me if you know of any helpful books or websites that might help — or if you have suggestions for coping with a tragic loss. I’d be happy to share this with our group next week.

And, I recently realized that sometimes we know things deep down, but we don’t want to admit or accept them.

Sometimes we know things about a marriage or relationship, a parent or child, or even our own health or bodies (especially after a calorie-rich holiday season!). Knowing is one thing…and facing the truth is a whole different beast.

So, I wrote 10 Reasons You Can’t Face the Truth About Your Relationship.

Next week I’ll share tips on how to actually face the truth about something you’d rather avoid. If you have a story or advice to share, feel free to email me!


On the bright side

What are you looking forward to? What’s happening in your life that you’re excited about or scared of?

Remember that God brought you this far, and He’s not done with you or your life yet. You are part of His plan, and He has a purpose for you. He may not tell you everything — and He certainly won’t protect you from problems or pain because that wouldn’t be good for you.

But God loves you, and He won’t abandon you now. He’s never left you yet, has He? Even though you don’t always know what He’s doing, or why, or how, or when. Yours is not to question, little one. Yours is to trust, believe, and have faith in the God who created you.
