A Ray of Hope on the GMC Denali Dream Drive


I took the above photo while traveling on the Denali Dream Drive to visit the HGTV Dream Home last December. During the trip, I was feeling some kind of way about going into my second holiday season as a widow. I needed some time and space to think. The trip opportunity came at the perfect time for me, from my friends over at General Motors (GM). I remember stepping outside of the HGTV dream home and looking over the beautiful land that surrounded us. I glanced at the tall and beautiful trees, homes, water and mountains; along with the beautiful GMC trucks made that moment so beautiful and memorable.

While standing there, I began to think about my life; my purpose and how the past 2 years had felt like I was in land unreal, yet I was enduring because God had given me hope, even in the midst of what I had gone through. At that moment, I looked up into the sky and in the midst of the trees, I saw the most beautiful spot of sunlight shining through. It was so bright that I could hardly look at it directly. Within that moment, God spoke to my heart and said, "I am your ray of hope'! It was a powerful moment of release and relief to experience and I will never forget it. What has been your "Ray of Hope" during challenging times? Let me know by sharing it here, and then share this blog with someone you know that may need a "Ray of Hope" to get them through the day.

However, one group of women are starting a movment to be better wives in 2014 and beyond.

Many women packedĀ  St Xavier University on a recent Saturday morning to pray, eat and receive inspiration from dynamic speakers to include, Summer Alexander, Keyonda S. McQuarters, Debbi Boer Smits and Jamilla Thomas. They danced to the tunes of Zumba music by instructor, Lenora Henderson and even received the "laying on of hands" while traveling through a human "prayer tunnel".

"We are on a movement for 2014 to make a difference and we will be different," says Mrs. Houston.
