Welcome to my LIFE!

I’m so glad you’re here. This is where I share the intimate places of my soul in an effort to reveal God’s heart to you so that you will fully know His grace and mercy unending. My hope is that my words will remind you of life eternal, love everlasting, and truth beyond compare.

It’s astonishing to me, the word God has given me for 2015. You see, back in the fall of 2012 I was pregnant and God gave me the name Cadence Dawn with the promise of a “morning song.” As it happened, my morning song was just one of many things God would ask me to surrender in 2013 and, instead, that spring I gave birth to a son. As all things from God, my son has been a blessing, every bit the prince of peace that his name implies, I couldn’t be more grateful. It’s two years later now and I can feel the stir in my spirit of a faithful God redeeming His promise to me, the promise of a morning song. The word He has given me for 2015 is cadence and along with it the promise of not just a song for the morning, but a song for every hour, every day of my life.

 I can tell already that this year holds more than just the promise of a song, it’s the promise of a step, a way of life. This year I expect to discover the rhythm of a life in step and in tune with God. I’m hoping that as I learn and practice my cadence that my family will also be pulled into step along with me. I pray we grow together, making music with our lives, joined together in one holy song unto The Lord.

2015 will be a year of homecoming, both in the literal and figurative sense. It’s a return to obedience, but without compulsion. As I discover my cadence obedience will be the natural overflow of my heart rather than the need to appear to be doing the right thing. 2015 will be the fulfillment of the hope promised in 2014. This year I can feel myself breaking free from the “good girl” within in order to fully live out the grace promised to me through Jesus- the year when I will finally be free to simply move in step with Him without fear or hesitation.

2015 will be the culmination of all that God has been leading me through… Grace. Trust. Surrender. Hope. Cadence.

The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson- Book Review

Christmas Cat

The Christmas Cat Author: Melody Carlson Publisher: Revell, September 9, 2014 Number of pages: 176 Buy Link: Amazon He felt his face flushing as Cara opened the door. Wearing a garnet-colored knit dress and with her dark hair pinned up, she looked even prettier than he remembered. Suddenly he wished he’d thought to bring a hostess gift. Like a cat. Confession: I don’t read a lot of fiction. Hardly any actually. Still, when Revell offered to let me read The Christmas Cat I knew I had to do it. A book about Christmas and cats- totally my thing, there’s no way I won’t love it! I know one’s not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover, but truth be told, this time I did. I was hooked the moment I saw the sweet Maine Coon sitting patiently in front of the beautifully lit Christmas tree- a cover worthy of a frame for… [Continue Reading]

The Need of You and Me and Elijah

Come Psalm 27:8

A few weeks ago I started a mastermind group. It’s a small group of writers and bloggers each committed to their own story and also committed to each other. This post started as a status updated in that group: I feel like I’ve become the downer of our little group. It’s really unlike me and I don’t like it. I keep finding myself wrestling with God over issues that I thought I’d already surrendered. For instance, I really want to write on my blog. I just paid for another year of hosting, I want to see the value of it by actually posting something there- I want to move forward. But there are no words for me on my blog… Perhaps you, blog reader, have also noticed my silence in this space. I promise it’s not for lack of desire to connect with you. I dream of filling this space… [Continue Reading]
