Last Day

I've been very blessed to have been working these past few years with DaySpring on Roy Lessin's devotional blog, Meet Me in the Meadow, as a part-time temporary, and then a contracted employee.

Today is my last day. Meet Me in the Meadow will not have new content posted on it, and there is no need for my services. The last post will go "live" at 4 am, and I'll respond to comments and notices on the website and through Facebook through the day, and then I'm done.


There's a number of other things going on in my life right now, but none of them are anything I'm ready to share yet. Some have surprised me. Others were expected. God was aware of all of them, and could have changed the course of these things long before we knew of them... but He didn't. Only we were surprised; He has always known.

Several months ago God gave me an epiphany moment during a difficult decision. He told me to choose the hardest way, make the hardest decision possible, because it would insure that I would be leaning in harder on Him, and it would bring new growth in my spiritual life with Him.

I didn't get to make this choice, but I'm remembering these words He whispered in my ear. He is with me. He is not surprised. He invites me to press in hard to Him, and there I will wait for Him to unfold the "what's next" of my life. I will cling to Him today, so close that I can hear His heart beat...


A heart-felt "Thank YOU!" to all of you that have supported Meet Me in the Meadow all these years. As much as you will miss reading Roy's words, I will miss "seeing you" online. We will meet again, in heaven's meadow...

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

 Just a short note to remind you that I’m easing off of posting here, and posting MORE over at the new site, MarinaJBromley . Today I happened to have two posts go live (one on my blog, and one over at Balanced and Beautiful in Christ) on Forgiveness.  May you be blessed! M

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
