The LOFT – Round Two


A place called home. (Graphic below by Kerry Messer )The Loft: A weekly Hangout and Link Up for Christian bloggers

There have been many places I have called home; some for just months, others for years. My first home was Kenton, Tennessee, for about 16 years; and now, Satsuma, Alabama is where I hang my hat. 🙂 Actually, this is my second time to live here. The first time was long ago, in another life. 

Satsuma, round two, is full circle for me. A redo you could say. November 1975, I called Satsuma home as a woman who knew a lot about GOD but with NO assurance that I was His and He was mine. In His grace and goodness that changed on November 18, 1975 at right about 9:00 pm when I surrendered my pride and stubborn will to the Savior, JESUS CHRIST the Righteous. We walked together in sweet fellowship for many years through many places and a couple States. 

Today, I am here again, a new wife for almost ten years now. A new address in the same community; a new name in the same church. Day after day Satsuma reminds me that ABBA gives do-overs.

From here where will we go? ABBA knows. This I know:

In my Father’s house are many places to live. If there weren’t, I would have told you; because I am going there to prepare a place for you. Since I am going and preparing a place for you, I will return to take you with me; so that where I am, you may be also. [source] John 14:2-3

  1. Kathie, what a joy to be reminded daily of the grace that allows do-overs! You drew some excellent spiritual connections between your home and the Christian life. 🙂 It’s lovely to learn more about the Loft ladies.


  2. Oh friend, I am so thankful that God allows do-overs. And I love how you incorporated that in your post this week. Such an important message for us all. Thank you for the light you shine for Jesus, and thanks for joining us at The Loft.


  3. Hi!. Thank you for letting us in to the place you call home. I loved the story of how we change, but He is changeless. The Satsuma prepared for you today is just right. Isn’t it great to know this nugget of truth. Coming to you from “The Loft”. Blessings, Chris~


  4. Kathie,
    I am coming to you from The Loft. I loved your post..and particularly, where you said, “Day after day Satsuma reminds me that ABBA gives do-overs.” Amen to that! So happy that I’ve had many of them myself!


  5. Wonderful to have this insight into your walk with God and it is so lovely that you have returned! Really encouraged by your words! God is good! Thanks for linking up at The Loft 🙂


  6. “We walked together in sweet fellowship for many years through many places and a couple States.” That line just struck me good. I envied you a bit in this post as I thought of the place I’d never want to live again because of my past there. Thanks for sharing your story. Coming from The Loft.
