looking towards eternity ... and Jesus ...


i took this pic in the fall of 2015 ... 3 years ago already ... it seems like time is a speeding locomotive heading towards eternity ... time to seek HIM who will meet "the saved" on that train ... it's good to be found in Jesus ... the One and Only ...

God knows the beginning and the end ...


it gives me comfort to know that GOD has all my days ordained ... even before i was formed.  even if i am only known to a handful of people in my lifetime - i am KNOWN to the Creator of the Universe ... the one Who designed me ... my life matters ... your life matters ... take heart ...

double the blessing!


we had some torrential rains ... and then a beautiful double rainbow appeared ... it seemed to start (or end?) right in the river ...  somehow pictures never do it justice ... "God has promised" is what i think of when i see the rainbow ... Hope ... there is still HOPE.

a post from 10 years ago

i came across this blog post today ... it's been 35 years now since we started this chronic pain walk ...

leo and i are celebrating an anniversary ... sort of ...

it has been 25 years since leo's first back surgery ... 25 years since chronic pain became the "third person" in our marriage ... 25 years of having our hope for health dwindle and the dreams of our youth eliminated ... 


YET, it has also been 25 years of learning to love each other unconditionally, despite obstacles which attempted to destroy our marriage ... learning to walk by faith - when human understanding failed ... 25 years of great valleys - and even greater mountain top experiences ...

an anniversary ... sort of ... 


* * * * * * *
points from a charles stanley sermon, that also mark the cornerstones of our faith:

- God controls our circumstances
- God will meet our needs
- God is with us
- God loves us with an eternal love ...

what are we worried about?

i am not perfect ...


how many times have i not done something, because i didn't think i could do it as well as someone else ... or felt inadequate for so many reasons ... but the GOD who created me, just asks for a willingness to be used for HIS glory and for HIS kingdom ... ok ... i can do that ... i am WILLING ...
