Welcome to Obtaining Mercy!
I am Alesha Kay and I am so excited that you have dropped by my blog for the Ultimate Blog Party!
I started blogging in 2007, which was a particulary difficult year for our family. I was just looking for a place to unwind, to share my thoughts and feelings, and to connect with other likeminded women.
I have been greatly blessed by the people I have met since then. I love my bloggy friends!
I blog quite a bit about the men in my life: My husband Doug and my son, Isaac. In fact, Isaac has his own page here, because he is such a special kiddo - in more ways than one.
I also write about running a household, living with chronic conditions (fibromyalgia & osteoarthritis) and about our ongoing goal of fitness and health.
The writing that I am most passionate about is my A Door of Hope posts.
I reached a point in my life, when Isaac was so sick in 2007, that I felt absolutely hopeless. I had never experienced that kind of emptiness and pain before, and I was shocked and saddened by my inability to rise above those feelings.
So, I ran to God's Word, and I sunk myself into It to see what I could find about hope; and of course, the Bible's pages are brimming with verses and stories about the Hope that we can only find in God alone.
The Lord is so gracious and kind to give us all that we need to meet life's trials, when we read His Word. He wants our lives to be joyful and filled with hope.
As we come to know the character of God, we come to realize that as long as God lives, there is hope! It is ours for the asking, and it is bountiful and everlasting in its supply.
Thanks for coming to the Ultimate Blog Party!!!
Be sure to head to Party Central and visit with the other bloggers there.
