bring the rain

Alece-Ronzino-Bring-the-Rain

The list of roles I played in my former life that I no longer play in this after life is staggering. Wife. Founder. Leader. Missionary. Pastor. Ministry Director. Daughter-in-law. Aunt.

And though not the largest, nor the least, of the losses I faced through my divorce, I no longer fit among certain groups of people. Like pastors’ wives, or ministry leaders, or ex-pats, or even just people who only spend time with other married couples. I lost a lot of relationships. And a lot of opportunities.

It feels at times like my history has been erased.

So when my friends at A Life Overseas asked me to share with their online community, I was blown away. Shocked, actually. Though I no longer direct a nonprofit overseas, their invitation told me they still value my voice and experience in that arena. And I can’t even begin to tell you what that did for my heart.

All that to say, I’m really humbled and grateful to be sharing over there today. Come join us…

    I found your blog from LOS. I love it. So much. I moved overseas when I was 23. I can’t imagine how you’ve found joy back in the USA. You must be incredible.

  3. That was a beautiful piece. Excited for you about this new opportunity!
