A Bit About me

Welcome to my personal weblog! I have many areas of interest as a Christian wife and home schooling mother of 6 girls: writing, poetry, website design, digital photography, a home business (sewing); however, this blog will focus more on the wonderful journey the Lord has brought our family through and what the Lord has shown me in His Holy Word.


I know that my devotionals don't often speak of specifics in our lives, but I want my readers to know that what I write comes most often from what the Lord is doing in our lives, or has done. I don't just repeat words by this preacher or that one. My devotionals are often written through a haze of tears, sometimes in grief, sometimes in peace at God's goodness for what He is doing for our good. At other times, after a flood of tears over my lack of faith in His great plan for us, especially after I've seen Heaven's gates open in another miraculous answer to prayer. What I write is what God shows me through those trials which He brings because of His great goodness as He works out His perfect plan. - Angela.

It’s Only After

It’s Only After

(Dedicated To Henri)

Roses are so beautiful that we forget that thorns cause pain,
We often forget that rainbows only come after the rain.
Sometimes the sun is hidden when storm clouds are in view,
It’s only after the rose is picked that it will bring great joy to you.

It’s only after the storm subsides that peace comes to calm the seas,
It’s only when the light turns on that the shadow suddenly flees.
Sometimes we only learn, to appreciate the light,
After walking through the darkness, in what seems like blackest night.

It’s often only when you miss someone that their worth is realized,
For iron sharpening iron, is a blessing in disguise.
You may lose your dearest friend, yet there will always be another,
Still, Jesus is the best of friends that sticks closer than a brother.

It’s only when you see you’re lost, that you truly can be found,
It’s when you admit your poverty that Christ’s riches can abound.
It’s only in losing yourself that you find life’s joy at last,
And sometime in the future, the Lord will heal the past.

It’s only after you pray in faith, that the peace of God transcends,
And only after your faith is proved, does the trial come to an end.
It’s only in surrender to the Lord that brings end to inward strife,
It’s only after dying that we rise to endless life.

It’s only after travailing that comes the joy of a child’s birth,
Only after the tribulation comes the new heaven and new earth.
Only after a seemingly endless night, comes the dawning of the day,
It’s only in eternity that the former things are passed away.

It’s only after the sorrow ceases that comes the soothing of the pain,
And just before the darkness passes that the Morning Star shines again.
After the tests and trials are done, the Father wipes all our tears away,
And we’ll live with Christ, our Saviour, in eternity’s endless day.

And we know that all things work together for good to
them that love God,
to them who are the called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:28
