Haiku constricts words
As life constrains our options
Forcing new beauty
A view of Life!
I am "MariaKaren Kettleson Anderson" and go by "EmKay" these days. I am a disciple of Jesus (see my post on 8/18/2006 for an explanation of what I really mean by that) and all of the posts through 12/2009 were written while I was a member of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) in Newport Beach, CA. I transferred my membership in January of 2010 to St. Mark Presbyterian, Newport Beach, but found that loving community already formed was tough to walk away from, and so I had more than a year of peripheral involvement as I discerned where I should be. St Mark was full of wonderful people and very good theology and practice, and if our lives had not changed in dramatic ways from 2011 to now, I would have rooted there. As it is, we look forward to settling into a new church in Northern Minnesota. I am in my 50s, and am a wife, mother to 4 sons (ages 33, 32, 18, and 16), and step-mother to 2 sons (ages 28 and 25). Although -- like you -- I keep busy with many commitments and responsibilities, my life is centered around following after God through Jesus Christ and letting Him transform me through my relationship with Him and my relationships within my community of faith.
