I’m Faye. I’ve been happily married to Rich for over 45 years. We live in Iowa and currently enjoy living on the outskirts of a larger town with the benefits of being near the farming country. We have been blessed with two children, a great son-in-love, two grandchildren and many other children-in-love.
I operated a secretarial business since 1978. I have enjoyed working for a variety of people from ministers to attorneys, sales reps, authors, students, unemployed and underemployed, and so have met a variety of people and backgrounds.
I have made a concerted focus over the years to look at and for God’s blessings. My life’s goal is based on Ephesians 3:14-21, specifically – “Now to Him who is able to immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Looking to see God’s hand everyday takes intentional work, and I don’t always make it. But when I do, there are times He can just blow me away with His presence, leading, guiding, protecting, providing in my life. This has been especially true after being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. Learning to see God in-spite of, and through the pain, has brought a deeper understanding and a closer relationship with God. I’ve truly been blessed!
One of the blessings I’ve enjoyed is taking pictures of His abundant variety in creation. Many of the photos on the blog are mine. You may use them with my permission if you are using them for a worship setting, church or non-profit situation. I just ask that you add: (c)God’s Abundant Blessings if you are using them in a for-profit situation. Let me know if you are using them, since in effect, they aren’t my photos and this is not my blog, everything I own is God’s. If you’d like a larger jpeg file, just email me at: fdykema at gmail dot com.
