A Shift in Focus Beyond Vision Loss
I wanted to share a few ideas with you. First of all, if you’ve been following me regularly, you’ll know that last year was a pivotal year in my life with my mother passing. I took time off from writing. In August, I started writing again but started a new book–with a shift in focus. It was a devotional book about coping with various types of loss–although it was inspired by a question about vision loss
How do you manage to stay positive and find joy when you continually lose more vision?
Pondering this question led me down a different road where God journeyed with me and helped me answer that question by showing me how He ministered to me during other low periods of my life, building a sturdier foundation of faith by bringing me through the challenges.
To correlate with my new book, Seeking Solace: Finding Joy After Loss, I’ll be posting excerpts from that book and blog posts that talk about pregnancy loss, divorce and the death of my father. Although these events occurred some time ago, I’ve now taken time to process them and learn more about how God ministered to me during those periods of time.
So you’ll be seeing some new content.
But I will still be addressing vision loss–tips, experiences and whatever topics you’d like for me to address regarding Retinitis PIgmentosa, sight loss in general and anything else you’d like me to address. Please give me input so this blog will be even more relevant to your needs.
Do you want me to continue interviewing or posting from others who have unusual stories or cope well with vision loss (My Friday Friends column).
I’d really like your input about what you, my community, want to read about, what you want to keep, and what you would like to see more of.
If you know someone who has gone through difficult pregnancies, or is struggling to cope with divorce, or someone who has lost a family member, past or present, please share my blog with them. Together we can encourage each other.
Loss is really hard.
But God stands in the gap.
When we lean on Him–no matter what type of loss. That’s what I’m learning as I deepen my trust in Him.
Thank you aNd looking forward to hearing from you in the COMMENTS.
