I like to read a story. It is what connects us as people. Yes, we start with our shared love for good design, or recipes, or whatever it is that hooks us in, but then we find we have the common thread of different life experiences, kids, struggles and even our faith, and we find that we have a new "friend".
Nancy Marcus, who writes the beautiful blog, Marcus Design is one of those people. Her home is beautifully decorated (all the images shown today are from her home), her blog is always impeccably filled with lovely images and inspiration, she is a talented artist (that is her work below - check out her Etsy shop here) and DIYer (see chest above), and is getting ready to graduate with her PhD in Molecular Genetics and Biochemistry. Wow, right?
Last week she posted about some struggles she is going through and shared a song her (very talented as well) brother wrote. It is beautiful. I have listened to it over and over again and it brought tears to my eyes the first time I heard it. I hope it will touch you as well. No matter how well we may have it together in this life we know here on earth, it does not compare to the knowledge that there is One who is always with us and who holds our life in His hands.
Have a blessed Sunday. xo
Andrew Marcus - Our Conversation
Dear Father I feel all alone
Dear Father I know You're in control
When I stand here in the middle of this storm
Dear Father I know You're on Your throne
And You say...
I know the plans I have for you and your soul
You know My thoughts and plans are bigger than your own
Dear Father when I walk astray
Dear Father even then You light my way
Sometimes I don't know where to go
But dear Father there's one thing that I know
Is that You say...
Fear not for I will save I've called you My own
When you walk through the storm you'll never be alone
All the stars in the sky I hold in My hands
I feed the birds that fly everywhere on My land
Dear Father... I don't feel alone

i am so with you- it's the people and their personality that keep me coming back! and i also listened to that song last week and cried- it was so moving and beautiful.
Thank you for the reminder:) beautiful.
What a lovely post and a true testament to what can happen in blog land.
Everything you said about her blog I was thinking I could say about yours!
I am off to visit hers now-

I loved Nancy's post from last week and was also touched (and teared up) by listening to her brother's beautiful song.
I am so glad that you chose to highlight them and their faith in your post today. xo
Oh my goodness, I am overwhelmed and SO blessed by this post Sherri! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. And to think, I thought I would be annoying people with my pouting and complaining ... but it turned out to be the opposite. I need to remember that it is okay to get personal on a blog, people are so kind and genuinely want to support each other. This blog world is INCREDIBLE and YOU are an amazing example of a supportive friend that I may never even get the chance to meet in person but you have touched my life in ways you may not know!! THANK YOU.
And thank you to everyone for their kinds words, especially about my brothers song! Big hugs,
So, so beautiful. The blog world is pretty incredible!
It is pretty amazing how connected we can feel. I've always struggled with how much personal information I share on my blog, but recently I've tried to share bits here and there as I feel comfortable. It is so good to know that there is support all over.
