This is me, Jane Fogdall, looking toward the sky. I am anticipating the arrival of my beloved, my Savior, Jesus Christ. He said He would come again for His church, His bride. I am one of His and He is mine. I am not ashamed to say this, though some who read this will wonder if I am still a member of this planet. That’s okay. Just be thankful I’m not the Judge.
Though I have been a Christian for 40 years, I have not always trusted Christ. My life, like yours, has been a series of ups and downs, bad choices, good choices, work, play, keeping house, raising kids, marriage, divorce, moving here, moving there. All along the way, I picked up idols, just like the Israelites of Scripture. I have worshiped other, lesser gods instead of the one true God. And guess what? God loves me so much that He has let me worship false gods, just to prove to me that He is the only One, faithful and true God and He wants me all to Himself! I have never been loved like that!
And so, I wait and watch the sky…
In the meantime, as I enter into the Golden years of my life, I continue to work as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant to earn a living and enjoy one of the finest gifts God has given–the gift of babies! What a joy it is for me to work with young couples who are eager to welcome children into their families and are so open to learn from those of us who have gone on before. I also have the privilege of spending some of my spare time with two of my sons who are local and live together. My oldest son and his wife are in Wisconsin and I look forward to being able to see them whenever I can get away! My mother is still quite active at 92 years and loves to have me take her to garage sales and thrift stores and out for a good meal. I am also active in my church, Mars Hill, West Seattle. I attend when I have Sundays off, and have a community group that I am just getting to know. I also attend a Women’s Bible Study in Renton, twice a month. God has been speaking to my heart lately about starting a Theology reading group, so I am in the beginning stages of putting that together.
Whoever you are, and however you do life, please join me on this great journey. It is not always pleasant. In fact, it’s incredibly messy. But if you find Jesus to be your Savior, then together we can look to sky– for our Redeemer draweth nigh!
