Welcome to Fresh Mercies! This is a Christian blog written by Keren Dibbens-Wyatt with a different format each year. It has included poetic prose, short fables and words from God as well as encouragements from Scripture. It is usually updated daily, but currently having a more spontaneous relationship with posts whilst Keren takes some time here and there to recharge.
Keren Dibbens-Wyatt is a British contemplative writer with a passion for prayer and creativity. She writes to encourage others into finding and getting to know God more intimately, and to share the poetic ponderings of her heart. A Christian for over 30 years, Keren answered a call to a deep prayer relationship with the Lord, which has led to a gracious outpouring of stories, ideas, and wisdom. No stranger to difficulties, Keren has now had disabling myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.) for nearly two decades, often being housebound or using a wheelchair.
Keren is the author of the books “Whale Song: Choosing Life with Jonah”, “Positive Sisterhood: Restoring the Integrity and Purpose of Christian Women”, and “Christian Prayers for the World”, all of which are available on Lulu.com, Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and Barnes and Noble. She has also written many short stories for adults, fiction for older children, and poetry among other things. Keren writes regularly for Godspace and guest posts on spirituality at Abbey of the Arts and other Christian sites. She enjoys painting in pastels, photography, embroidery, and crochet.
Having been given treasures every day for a year which were published on the web as The Manna Blog, the Lord’s second year of outpouring to Keren began here on 2nd April 2014 as the Garden of God’s Heart (book to be reissued soon).
The third year of blogging began as a parable or short story each day – “a Flurry of Fables” if you like – lots of them have animal characters! From day 112 onwards it became a short piece of poetic prose based on the world around us called “The Landscape of Love”. Keren’s chronic health condition meant these did not get written every day but as energy permitted.
The fourth year was entitled “the Veil of Tears” and was a daily journey through some of the darker and more confusing verses of Scripture, seeking to find the glimmers of hope in the difficult and tragic parts of life.
In 2017, a new thread will be called “Eye of Horus” and will be a daily contemplative photograph and thought. All is gift and Keren seeks to represent the Lord’s heart faithfully so that others might be inspired to get to know the one who is love.
May you be blessed by the one who seeks your heart.
