I live alone with my preschooler in an off-grid cabin on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia.
"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Weaving takes time and I spend hours weaving these letters which gradually merge into words. The long process of meditating word upon word of scripture feeds my soul. I mourn for the life I will never have but in the same breath it is because of tragedy that I can begin to comprehend God's love. In the solitude of the loom with my mind on scripture I have a peace I have never had since my partner left. There is hope - because He has given it to me. The last trip to town I felt I had to go on a particular Monday. When we got back from town and I went to park the vehicle on the mainland side so we could take the water taxi home I saw a tow truck hooking up the car beside me where I had been parked that morning. The area was now ribboned off and even though I had been parking there - along with everybody else for many years the property owner had evidently decided that parking was not going to be allowed there anymore! I give praise to God for looking out for me. I know someone is going to think it is a nice coincidence- and to that person I say this - what has coincidence given you? Has it given you love, hope, healing and provided for your physical needs?
