A Deep Seated Faith and Abiding Love


During this time of Thanksgiving, I sit alone and quiet and I think about the things in my life that are topsy-turvy right now.

I have tried to figure out a reason for things that have no reason…

and I realize that it is time to let go of trying to make sense out of things that have no sense

I lean on the only understanding I have and that is how I will navigate these waters that have been turbulent and threatening.

My faith is what allows me to wake each day and face the onslaught of pain and artillery that is pointed directly at my heart.

My faith allows me to stop asking why and wondering how it could be…

And leads me to the understanding that all is exactly as it should be;

that there is great healing taking place;

and that sometimes life is really hard because we have to fulfill a contract that we signed 

This “knowing” that wells up from the center of my soul

creates the most beautiful love

that surrounds me in angel wings

and lifts me higher than the pain

I don’t spend time trying to figure it out now, rather, I spend my time being.  And the deep seated faith strokes the chords of my abiding love and I am ready to face tomorrow.


Lorrie ❤


I wish you all the peace that comes from knowing that you are exactly where you need to be…experiencing life in ways that stretch you to grow in the most perfect love ❤

A deep seated faith and abiding love is what guides me through the rough patches.

May you find sweet blessings in your rough patches ❤

  1. Beautiful post, Lorrie. I think we all struggle for understand on why things are the way happen in our lives. We wonder if what we do or what is done to us matters at all. We can’t see the big picture so we have to have faith and trust that it all matters and we are not meant to understand and just keep moving towards our joy. Hang in there, Lorrie. We are all here for you.

    1. Thanks, JoAnna❤ It has been such a turbulent year…so many life events…and many deep issues uncovered. I wonder sometimes about this process of peeling back the layers. I spent so many years HIDING from the things that lurk in the darkness. I know it is the right thing to do and that once the work is done there is such freedom and healing…but the process hurts…and the ride gets scary sometimes.
      Thank you for your beautiful soul…I appreciate you! Many blessings during this season 💜

  2. So sorry you are going through difficult challenges. Absolutely great you have faith that all is unfolding perfectly, according to your contract. Healing is so hard sometimes. May your heart BE full of all you desire.
    Much love,


    1. Ah…Mary! Thank you 💜 I swear I can feel your energy…and you stirred up some tears that had to fall!! I’ve been doing a lot of that lately…and it is a clearing…a healing.
      I hope you are well, Mary. I appreciate your kind words…and yes…I am exactly where I am meant to be. We all are…yes?


  3. Thank you for this thoughtful post Lorrie. 💛 I agree, letting our minds get tangled in the why’s, only keeps us firmly stuck. Finding our center and feeling grateful can give us the space we need to step out of the pain and drama our minds create. May faith and love support you as you work through this time of healing and transformation. xoxo
