“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” ~ Isaiah 61:1-3
Welcome to my website. I was in a church service after returning from Romania and my pastor started to describe something about me regarding the trip and he said the phrase, “If anyone knows Melissa…” I am not sure what followed those words but my immediate thought was…nobody really does! And so this site was created.
Now, after 11 years of blogging does anyone know Melissa? Except for the Lord and myself, probably not. True, lasting friendships need time and likely face to face time more than internet time. They are rare. Perhaps we need to go back to the days of chatting over lunch or tea or something. I’m open for it….but until then, enjoy!
