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.
