Love is patient, love is kind.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

And now these three remain:
faith, hope and love.

But the greatest of these is love.

A New Blog to Give My Attention To Grow

I've been very remiss at writing actual posts on Searching for Annette.  However last weekend at a conference called She Speaks, other writers helped me to realize the value of maintaining a blog. I know in my heart that I am a WRITER.  I own it now.  Writing is a gift God meant for me to use fully.  That being said, I've started a new blog to go into greater detail about life after Clay entered.  It can be found at  The name of the new blog is Cradled in Hands of Grace.  While those years were extremely difficult, God cradled us in His Hands all along.  This blog is an attempt to put words to memories and photos of life post Clay's emergency entrance to life outside my womb.  God has had us on the Potter's Wheel nearly thirty years, but a good potter makes certain that the clay he is spinning does not come off the wheel.  It has felt off balance.  It has felt cruel and we have wanted to exit the spinning we have gone through.  Yet I know that God has had his capable and loving hands wrapped around my family the entire time and still He holds us.  Someday perhaps the Potter's Wheel will slowly stop and HE will decide it is time to remove us from the wheel.  When, where and how are questions I still ask of Him.  However, I do not hear the answer.  I must continue to trust His capable hands to cradle us regardless the circumstances that may await.  He has held us through many storms.  I know He has a big purpose and a big plan, so I will wait until He is ready to reveal more of the shape He is giving us.  I'll keep trying to express myself through words to glorify what HE has done for us.  I give thanks to him for loving us and keeping us all together as family.  I wait and hope I will continue to please him and glorify him.  May I do so with the future of my new blog that is Cradled in HIS Hands of Grace.
