Welcome to my CaringBridge website. I am using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. Fall7Standup8.net started as a personal blog to share my most recent “life speed bump”. The site keeps getting hacked, so I am bringing my updates here, as some of my friends have done. I will be pulling old posts over in the next couple of weeks.
Anyway, God has different ways of slowing us down and he uses us for different reasons. I believe part of my purpose is to show people that when knocked down, you can stand back up with grace. Through challenges, you often gain a beautiful clarity that you lose in day to day life. If I help only one person on approaching life by choosing grace, I feel I have lived a purposeful life.
