I have been in the hospital due to an injury which could lead to the amputation of my big toe on my right foot and am also still healing from a long-standing left foot injury. These, my care giving and recent loss of my much loved mom have worsened other health and provision challenges and have LOUDLY reminded me of the importance of faith. I value your prayers and will have more positive messages to share soon.
I posted this on Facebook, but feel nudged to share it here as well, so . . .
Is your wallet filled with cards of all sorts? It seems to me we are a society which is constantly “signing up” and yet, while we were created to be “community” rather than just individuals, I wonder if any of us . . . for all our signing up, actually truly show up? Do we live up? Do we give up? Does the one with the most little cards in his or her wallet win a prize? I think it’s time to WAKE UP. Problem is, we can’t do that alone. It takes a community. When we achieve THAT then things will finally be looking up.
Be careful when giving advice because one day you might have to take your own advice and THEN you’ll learn MUCH.

I have fallen behind on preparing the many acceptance requirements for a variety of reason (busy busy busy) so please accept my thanks and blessings and know that I will catch up as soon as I can!
Sometimes life goes along a familiar path for a while then . . .
My heart pounds as I face a brick wall.
I thought I was clever and strong.
Looking at the wall from this side still . . .
I find myself trusting the Lord, but . . .
New heart, new hope, new crack in the brick wall . . .
God provided a toe hold to climb up and begin anew!
I can’t speak for you, but this time of year can be a challenge for me. It is the most likely time of year I fall victim to the “crud” which I presently have . . . aaaaachoo! I stress about wanting to make it the perfect Christmas, and I remember loved ones from the past as well as the present . . . memories. We aren’t always able to hold those dear ones close to us in body and hence the challenge, but they are always a part of us and since the Kingdom of God is at hand, we remain together with them always. Delightful thought, that! So, here is a collage with a bit of the past, present, and future of my life and heart, but it’s not complete because all of you are in my heart as well!
