Not Just A Blonde

We are "Not Just" who we seem to be on this Earthly plane, but so much more. We are ALL children of a loving God who is calling us home to Love. This blog is dedicated to those of us on that journey together…

I’m not just a blonde. I am much more than that. My blog is about just that… the ‘more’ that is the true essence of each of us. We are more than we appear to be on this Earthly plane. We are Spirits seeking Truth, led by Him to learn to Love.

My path has led me through the Christian religion from Fundamentalism to being more Progressive in my thoughts… more open to God’s Voice and His Spirit! I believe He speaks to us through, yes, the Bible (although not always quite so literally), through others, and to our hearts directly if we are open to Him.

I have pretty much always been a believer however several years ago I went through a spiritual crisis following the passing of my best friend’s identical twin daughters. It became unfathomable to me how a loving God could allow such a tragedy to occur! I got angry, I questioned Him, I became disillusioned and disappointed in my journey of faith.

Following this spiritual low I journeyed into a spiritual prairie. My life wasn’t devoid of God, but His presence was sparse with lots of open “unknown” territory that I had little desire to explore. I was open but not seeking God. I’d become resolved in the fact that God did things I would and could never understand. I felt disconnected and forgotten. I lived with a quiet sadness knowing God would never be who I desperately wanted Him to be.

A little over a year after the passing of the twins I had a spiritual experience that changed everything for me. My prayers were answered in a way that I could never have predicted or imagined! I was changed in a way that I am still trying to comprehend. My journey now is filled with a lush landscape and I spend most days exploring, seeking and experiencing God’s presence in my life. He is very much present in my life and I recognize Him now more than ever before… and so can you!

I have learned we will know Him by His Love. God is Love is God. By learning to Love… we are closer to God. This blog is about my journey towards Him. Please join me! Your comments and respectful insights are always welcome and encouraged!

    1. Shaun, Thank you so much, the gesture is so very sweet! Because these awards feel somewhat like chain letters (and I’ve never complied with that sort of thing) I will not be accepting it formally, however the warmth of it’s offering has been humbly received. I thank you for your kind words and consideration! ☺️ Ann

    Ann, I’m just writing to say that I just watched your NALT project video and it was absolutely beautiful. You are an inspiration. I feel better just knowing that there are people like you out there, half a country away but with a heart as pure as gold. Thank you for the gift of your video, as it truly was that. Steve

    1. Thanks guys! I have been thinking about updating my blog space for awhile and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! I wanted to have it light, simple and more spacious and I believe I have just that! It’s nice to hear you agree! ❤️Ann

      1. I know what it’s like to contemplate changing a blog theme. I think about it from time to time, but haven’t been ready to make a change. I agree with you about your new theme feeling light, simple and more spacious.

        Do you think the image in your masthead will work as the Gravatar image that appears next to your comments? The masthead image feels friendlier to me and more representative of the content of this blog. And now that I think of it, the masthead image also feels lighter, simpler, and more spacious :-). -Bob

      2. Bob, Oh, thank you! I agree! I think I may have some even better pics to choose from soon as I had a fun photo-shoot during a recent trip to California. I am awaiting the digital copies from my photographer and best friend Erika Finn and hope some of those pics might be used on this blog real soon! 😊❤️Ann
