Who is this nut?



I am just a simple nut who lives in Lower Alabama……the place where a swimming pool of sweet tea will float you the same way the Great Salt Lake can.   My roots are in Tennessee, my trunk is in Kentucky and my branches spread over Alabama.  By the way, it is a nut tree that has grown from being around friends and family and students and co-workers and church members and counselors and total strangers.  It grew, and it survived…all because of the Grace and Mercy of a magnificent God.

This blog has evolved over the past three months from a blog about “Depression and Hope” to a random blog about life…..a Nut’s life.  You can find posts about what I call the “Dark Days” and you can find posts that are lighter.  No matter what post you read, each one comes with some of the truths I have seen while camping out on this earth.  When my mind was dark and broken, God’s hands swept aside the curtain to give me glimpses of truth that kept me going.  When my mind was healthier…stronger…He continued to sweep life aside to give me insights that sustain me to this present day.  His truth makes the journey worth the struggle.  His truth makes the journey end well.  His truth makes the journey sweet…even sweeter than Alabama’s sweet tea.

    Greetings nutsnotes, this is a fitting day for you as I have nominated you for the Just Kidding Award. You are in famous company as you will see. When you have time make a pit stop at my place to receive this once in a life time award!



  2. Well, kindred spirit, I, too, have learned a lot of truth in the darkest days of life. I have not yet gotten to the point where I can say His light makes the darkness worth it, but I can say His light saves me from the totality of the darkness. His light has shined in the hearts of people who have come to my rescue and aid at the most dire moments of life. Your blog is one I will be following and reading. Keep writing. 🙂

    I have no idea…I think it depends on “blog”

    Hey, thanks so much for the “like” and it looks like you have some pretty interesting stuff here. It does seem that truth shines brightest in the dark, doesn’t it?

      I think what happens is that the darkness makes the light stand out so much to where you are drawn to it. Of course in God, there is no darkness at all!!!

    Since you are from Alabama, I thought you might like to read this:

    “Was the Alabama Victory over Notre Dame Prophetic?”

      That was interesting for sure. The South has always said it would rise again and living in the middle of Alabama football while being a basketball fan has been challenging. Thanks for reading my post. I am getting ready to take a look at yours.



  12. Thanks for visiting my blog. I am so glad God’s grace and strength found you in your weakness. God is good at that.
