The Bridge


                              Just beyond this familiar place is a bridge leading to the other side.

The scariest part is that we can’t see the end.

But we trust.

We are brave.

And we go anyways.

This, the very essence of faith.

Believing in all that is good,

Even that which has yet to be seen.

A faith that starves out fear

and gives wings to hope.

Beyond the comfort of all that is known

Is the path that leads us home.

This is where the story of our journey begins.

About Rachel Rowell

A true southern gal at heart, Rachel was raised and lives in the deep south and spends her days raising her own babies, writing, making music, reading out on the front porch, and cooking supper for her family to sit around the table and enjoy together at nights! Her ultimate girlhood dream was to raise a family in a house just like "Anne of Green Gables" and now she is living her dream and inspiring others along the way.

      haha! Thank you for the compliment Tammy – however, the wisdom just comes in spurts every now and then lest you think I’m way more amazing that I really am. 😉

      Thanks so much for your voice of support in our little journey! It means a lot.
