About Debbie Bec

Welcome to my life. I wear many hats: Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Grandma, Friend, Mentor, Teacher, Writer...all of my "hats" hang on the tree of my faith in Christ. This blog is about the journey of faith in all of life's joys and messiness. For "In Him we live and move and have out being" (Acts 17:28) Christ is: "Our surety of life, realized." (based on Hebrews 11:1) Does this sound strange to you or make perfect sense? We are all on this journey together. I hope my journey will spark empathy and bring encouragement to your own journey through life. Come, walk with me... ~All pictures are taken by or owned by me, unless otherwise stated.~ ~~~ About twenty years ago, as I was flipping to the next month on an inspirational calendar, my eyes were drawn to a quote. My breath hitched, a torch was lit. I had an epiphany as I read: “There are a thousand thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen to write.” ~William Makepeace Thackeray (how fitting is his middle name). I prayed, and I knew from that moment that being a writer was in my veins and in my future. The words and musings in my head would have an audience someday. Starting, today.

Sunsets and Hope

I’m a night owl by nature. I’ve seen far more sunsets than sunrises over my lifetime. I never tire of preserving them in digital posterity. Time is visual, tangible, as the Sun speeds toward the hungry horizon. My thoughts immersed, … Continue reading

My Mighty Pen

Poetry was my first love. As my writing cravings grew, prose wooed me away. I was torn between two lovers. Why must I choose? I wont! I can’t. I will hold you both in my arms; come what may. We … Continue reading

What is Life?

Some would say I’m an old soul. I have always felt a little out of place in this world, more of an observer than a participator. An intent listener, selective with my words. Conversations usually sputter and die in the … Continue reading

True Love Covers All (Our Nakedness)

Love takes many forms. I love my friends, but not the way I love my children. I love my husband, but not the way I love God. God’s love informs my love for all. (Revealing the selfishness and blindness of … Continue reading
