Shandra Lee. With Heart Wide Open. A Miracle In The Making.

Skimming the titles along the recent posts you’ll find several beginning with “C”. Taking a break the next few to work on the missing letters of the alphabet..all based on recent conversations about the “L” Word.

Today is “A”.

Of what do you think when this powerful letter is called out?







Sharing laughter  yesterday about Battles. Yes, humor on the Battlefield. The battlefield of The Bad Hair Day and The Battle with the Recalcitrant Eye Lash Curler (that one Friends, is NOT a story for the faint of heart) 🙂

As they reached the exit she finished her sentence with “…have always felt  included except for the few and far between seasons of feeling (drum roll here…A…A….A…)Abandoned, like everyone occasionally does.”


Stay with me. I feel fairly certain this reminder is just as much for others out there, today as for myself yesterday.


I was just as surprised at that A word as she was, although she graciously pretended not to notice.

My thought had been this A Word~”Alone and Misunderstood”. Not at all what I uttered. BIG difference. Way. Big. Difference.

First,  I am fairly certain in my very scientific research over coffee and walk ~abouts, EVERYONE at some time experiences feelings of being misunderstood and Alone.

I am not so certain that EVERYONE in their earthly life has had reason to feel abandoned.

Second, I don’t. Feel abandoned that is.  A place of brokenness, healed.


“What is the lesson here Lord”

IAM. I.AM. ALPHA. IAM. You, Daughter have never been nor felt abandoned by Me. You, Daughter, yourself will say you are never Alone and rarely feel lonely. In My realm You have never been discounted, You have never been disqualified, You have always been worth it. Worth the skirmishes. Worth the battles. Worth The Blood. You Daughter are Accepted.

Romans 8:28

(and who continue to invite Him in.

The A Word…A=ACCEPTED via the L Word…Love.

Romans 8:39
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

With much 1 Corinthians 13 Love, Walking even a bit lighter today. (how ’bout you?)
