Several times a week  I connect with an online workout called Barre 3. It is one way I step outside of the chaos of my life to get reconnected and centered again. Often during the workout the instructor references the chaos we experience in our muscles as we move. We are encouraged to pay attention to what is happening and to embrace the chaos because it is in the chaos of our muscles our bodies are changed. What would

I am Beverly.

I am a child of God — deeply loved, adopted as His very own child with a place at the Table and an Inheritance. (Galatians 4:4-7) I know that–in my head; it took a while to reach my heart. It wasn’t immediate or easy, but when I believed that, my life changed.

I am a wife. My husband, Dave, is the greatest gift God has ever given to me. I have friends who are effusive about their spouses and I’ve looked at them in wonder (and quite frankly, disbelief) as they exclaimed about their husbands amazing qualities. No one can be that cool. But Dave actually is that cool! We’ve been married 33 years… sometimes the years were short and sometimes they were really long. But through thick and thin, Dave has endured – well, WE have endured. I know living with me has not always been easy. I’ve struggled with depression and that can be hard for him too. Sometimes I forget to be grateful or affirming; I’m self-centered at times and I confess, sometimes I’ve had a to-do list. But through it all, we keep saying I do! I couldn’t be happier about our decision 33 years ago to say “I DO” the first time.

Thanks for joining me! It’s an honor to share these few moments with you. I know life can be chaotic. It’s my prayer that the minutes we spend walking together will bring some semblance of peace to your day and hope for your journey. I would be nothing if it wasn’t for my friend, Jesus. He provides a shelter for my soul and strength for my day. Join me often — let’s learn to laugh, cry, grow and grieve together. All under the shadow of His wing, in the shelter of the Most High! (Psalm 91:1-2)
