Cafe Chat


What would be the title of a book about your life? If I were to write a book about my life, I would title it "Beauty For Ashes." There have been many times throughout my life, when circumstances landed me in a great big pile of ashes. But, my precious Father, has always picked me up, gently cleaned all the soot off of me, and restored me with the beauty of His love. I am a phoenix that has risen out of the ashes of pain, abuse, betrayal, sadness, death, self-mutilation, into the beauty of love, grace, total forgiveness, acceptance, and precious salvation. Thank You for writing the story of my life Father. I love You.

That's a lovely title, very reflective of how we always seem to make a mess of our lives, but God will pick us up, dust us off and set us off on our way again.

I had catch up on your last 3 posts here. I loved the one on your mama and that special Christmas! So sweet. I think you and I have spent a lot of time in ashes growing up, but thank the good Lord we're out of them. Praise Him, praise Him for His mercy, loving-kindness and unending love for us. ~Blessings!
