My name is Beverlie (a.k.a. Bebe - way back when). My husband, Ken, and I live about 60 miles south of Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the foothills of the Manzano (apple) Mountains. Our daughter, Esther, and our son, Luke, both live nearby us on the land. Over the years of my life I have "worn many hats". In my younger years I worked in medical research in molecular biology, and occasionally as an adjunct college professor. I became a mother at age forty when we adopted our two children. With our daughter four-years-old and our son one-year-old, I began the challenge of home-schooling - a rewarding adventure! They are launched into young adult life now, but still look to me as somewhat of a coach and cheerleader, and I cherish the privilege. In recent years I have returned to a "first love" - writing.
One "hat" I have worn for as long as I can remember is that of a "searcher". I could never quite settle in to a life lived merely on the surface, so to speak. For many years I was looking for an evasive "something" that I found difficult to define. The late Dr. Robert A. Cook wrote: "The greatest human need is to belong to somebody." In retrospect I can see that that was what my search was for. But the need was not just for human companionship; it was greater. I believe that it is a need in every one of us, and that it is woven into the strands of our very deepest being, for one simple reason. It is because we DO belong to Someone. The dilemma stems from the reality that somehow we have forgotten that we do. The knowledge of who we really are was lost in Eden. Yes, in one way or the other, we are all searchers. We are looking for our Maker (in whose image we are created) and our Father, and we seek a fatherland. The striking epiphany for me was that my Father was yearning for me with an infinitely greater intensity than any longing in my heart could ever be. This lost knowledge began to be restored to me when I came to understand the price that He paid for me to be able to return home - to my home in His heart. That immeasurable price was the lifeblood of His Son - whom we call Jesus, Savior.
What I share with you here on this website, I hope will simply flow through me from the very heart of God, your loving Father. We are like wayward, lost sheep, who are not able to help themselves. But the Good Shepherd has proven, beyond any possibility of doubt, how much He cares for us - for He laid down His life for the sheep. Now He lives to bring us safely Home. We can entrust our lives, our all, to SUCH a Shepherd. Dear fellow searcher, you too, are sought after, are greatly loved, and belong to Somebody!
