Hello, my friends! Thank you for spending time with me.
My name is Gleniece. I’m a wife of over 30 years, the mother of 5, and a child of God.
Living in the Desert Southwest has been a challenge.
It has also been a blessing.
Join me as I share my thoughts on sparsity and abundance, longing and fulfillment, and desperation and hope while living out my faith in a dry and lonesome land.
I love Bible word studies and enjoy sharing these with you along with some pretty good Red Apron Recipes, too.
If you follow along on Instagram, I’ll share a few adventures in desert gardening and desert living. My current post theme for IG is marriage. (Now that’s an adventure, isn’t it?)
I don’t blog every day; I have too much work to do. Once a week is my goal. (Although I’m still not there yet.)
I am married to a mighty man. Mighty in stature, mighty in the word of God, mighty in his patience with me all these years. He is my Mighty Man.
I homeschool our last two children, bake our daily bread, and maintain my sanity through prayer and trust in God. (Merlot and some extra-dark chocolate are extremely helpful too.)
Though we may be separated by many miles, I thank our merciful God he has given us to each other—you, my sister in Christ, my familiar friend—to exhort, to admonish, to lift up, and to comfort. Love to you from Arizona.
Abiding in the Vine,
P.S. Please bear with me; I am running this blog by smartphone only. I know, I know, I’m probably the only woman who still does not own a home computer. But I must work with what God has given me now and forge on without complaint.
My site may not be the prettiest blog on the block or function like I would want it to, but connecting with you is more important.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. 🙂
UPDATE: AUGUST 2017
It has been a long time coming, but I finally have a laptop. Two years of blogging by phone was hard, to say the least, but it instilled perseverance and thankfulness, and I learned a lot. Now, I have a new kind of ‘hard’ to work through (this is my first computer—ever), but I’m thrilled and thankful for this blessing from God.
Thank you for being a part of my journey.
This blog is but a drop of water in the vast ocean of the blogosphere. You would give me great encouragement if you would sign up below to receive my posts by email and follow me on social media.
It will be a blessing to connect with you.
I am a companion to all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.” Psalm 119:63
