Two years ago I met a young woman online. Lisa was in her early twenties, living at home. She was relatively new to Christ, but she managed on her own to go to church regularly.
Lisa was timid, yet kind and friendly. We started IM'ing back and forth fairly often. Little by little I learned more of the hard road she had traveled in her young life. And little by little I realized how strong she was to stand for Christ more or less alone in her world. I admired her resolve. I loved her heart. I have never lay eyes upon her or heard her voice, but Christ gave me a little sister in Lisa....my little sis in Christ.
She has recently joined us here in J-land. And in a big sister fashion, I emailed a few of you to go by and make her feel welcomed. What I didn't realize is that those I were sending to minister to her, were being the ones ministered to! I knew she has some talent for writing. I did not know the depth of the gift God had given her for sharing her journey in such a fresh, new way and with so much of her within it.
I had snagged this beautiful graphic by Donna, many moons ago. The dove spoke to me of the Holy Spirit. The first definition of peace spoke to me of the peace that passes understanding; God's imparted peace. Somehow, it just fits to finally use it here, on this entry.
