pel·lu·cid (pə-lo͞oˈsĭd), adj

  1. Admitting the passage of light; transparent or translucent
  2. Transparently clear in style or meaning: pellucid prose

Origin: Latin pellūcidus, from pellūcēre, to shine through : per-, through + lūcēre, to shine.

Admitting the passage of light.  Hmm.  Admitting: allowing, ushering in, welcoming.  Passage: to go in and out, back and forth, through and through.  This one small word, pellucere, so effectively sums up my daily prayer:  Lord, let people see your light in me and through me.  Thus, the point of this blog.  So many people have told me I should start one, and I have resisted.  But it dawned on me recently that being completely transparent and honest about my journey – its struggles and victories, tears and laughter – might just help someone else out along the way…
