Over the past year I've discovered the world of blogs and have been inspired by so many. One blog in particular is written by a woman named Edie. I was first drawn to it because of the beautiful photos. As I continued to go back I found myself inspired by her words. There was always something to reflect on after reading her blog post. A few days before Christmas when I went to read her blog I read that there had been a fire at her home. She and her family survived without injury but had lost everything. I was surprised how upset I was over this tragedy. I have never met Edie or her family. But through reading her blog over the last year I feel I know her.
It may seem trivial but one of the main things I have gained from Edie's blog is a love for The Avett Brothers. When I heard them for the first time through a link on her blog I was so moved and immediately downloaded their CD. I went on a trip to visit a friend in Georgia without my husband or kids. The Avett Brothers were my companions through the mountains of Georgia and became my backdrop for a wonderful trip. Their songs are reflective and soul stirring. I thank you, Edie, for introducing me to them. I continue to pray for you and your family. And Happy Birthday!
The link below is from a blog post of Edie's where she reflects on Head Full of Doubt/Roadfull of Promise. I think it must speak to her now more than ever.
