Meet the Blog Author

My name is Barbara. Pictured with me is my husband of 50 years, referred to as 'Beloved' on my blog. We have three adult children married to three wonderful people and out of those unions we have eleven grandchildren.

Between the two of us, we have lived in a dozen states from coast-to-coast, and I lived in Canada for a time as a teen. Most of our years together were along the Front Range of Colorado and then we retired to beautiful Florida where there is no snow to shovel and our heaviest coats are stuffed to the back of a closet.

My hobbies include sewing, coloring books, Bible study, leisurely walks and eating sea food within view of oceans, rivers, streams, and waterfalls. I also enjoy light-roast coffee on the back porch while visiting with family and friends.

Faith in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord sustains me. This has been true since the age of six, but especially since Beloved was called to Heaven after a brief illness. This was the most traumatic experience of my life but God has gently brought me through it and my spirit is not broken.

My blog post about his passing is at this link: A Temporary Goodbye

Blogging since February 2009, I enjoy this form of self-publishing as a way to express myself, relax, and make new friends both near and far. 

While I never expected my writing to include my own widowhood, this has been a helpful method for me to process grief. I trust as time passes the pain will lessen and my experiences will be of help to others.
