The Blue Jay Review

Hi, it’s nice to meet you!

I’m Sharon, wife to Tom, mom to two, and I am grateful to be here. I depend on God daily for peace and joy to embrace the good as we navigate towards our eternal home.

You didn’t think this life was all there is, did you?

C.S. Lewis said, “Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.”

I think on those better things a lot. I wonder what God has planned (the Bible says it is good, beyond anything we can imagine, for those who love him).

I’ve always enjoyed writing. I planned to study journalism with Spanish in the local university. I detoured to Bible college for a year and it changed the course of my life. 30+ years later I enjoy blogging, writing, journaling, however you name the result, it’s cathartic to me.

I’m so glad you’ve stopped by our place where lots of blue jays and cardinals, foxes and fawns, and sometimes a coyote, may pass by and be captured in a photo or blog post.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
