I’m Betsy.  Nice to meet you.

I’ve been gone from this tucked away corner for almost two years.  Two years, or really maybe even eons, spent losing my way and finding it again.

Helen Keller once said, “Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all.”  Joan of Arc said something to the effect of, “I am not afraid…I was born for this.”  Rocky Balboa said, “Every champion was once a contender that refused to give up.”  It’s been said about God, “He gave me no assurance.  No fixed land. Always one must throw oneself into the wave.”

And I say this: there is nothing I can do on my own but turn to Christ.  Sometimes it’s a full body movement, crashing into his arms, sometimes it’s a slight blink and sliding of the eyes in the direction of hope.  Either way, the turning is enough.

This collection of thoughts is my turning.  Won’t you turn with me?
