Welcome to ‘Searching for Serendipity‘ which I hope offers inspirational tidbits on the deeper meaning of our life journey as it relates to faith, nature, life, simplicity, and aging. I do not presume to be someone special or have ‘expert’ knowledge, but only wish to share thoughts, including those of others, on subjects I have become familiar with and are close to my heart.
Lafayette, Louisiana…in the heart of beautiful Acadiana near the Gulf of Mexico coast…is my home. My passions are haiku poetry and nature and nostalgia photography,…a love also shared with my precious wife and best friend, Bobbie.
Through my personal and close experiences while ‘walking’ with loved ones and friends as they confronted stress, illness, aging, and death, I have witnessed how faith, hope, prayer and love helped overcome pain, fear, depression and loneliness. By God’s grace, they have been able to call upon their faith for peace, hope, courage, acceptance, selflessness, and fortitude to persevere and never give up. Their wonderful examples of faith and trust in a loving God and Jesus Christ are the foundation for my latter phase of life and the reason l want to share my thoughts here. Perhaps you may find a brief respite from this busy, anxious world too.
Your comments are greatly appreciated as I love hearing your thoughts too. Please visit often and enjoy!
Blessings and peace, Al Gallia
