Hey, Internet-Land. Yes, it’s been a bit since my last post. Not a great couple weeks. Not to spread gloom across the world-wide-web, but our family has lost a very dear loved one, my youngest sister. As a result, my entries have been slowed. All in all, we are well and have been blessed beyond measure with love, prayers, and warm thoughts from so many. It softens the numbness that can seep into the heart. At times like this, I am so thankful for my faith. Not because it makes me anything special ~ just the opposite. I am thankful that my hope has nothing to do with me and everything to do with my loving Savior. Now, I know there are many who would scoff at my belief, and that’s ok. I choose to place my trust and faith in Jesus, and hope in Him for my eternity. I choose to live my life here with a joy and hope for an eternity with my Lord and those who have also trusted Him. I am fully aware that it is a choice that not all will make. As I once said to a man in Chicago ~ if I am wrong in my belief, and there is nothing more, I am no worse off for living a life of faith and hope. If I am right, however, I am glad to have my eternity resting in God’s hands rather than my own.
After taking much of the day today to just rest and reflect on happy memories, I wanted to check in with those who are so good to visit my blog. Thank you to both those who follow and those who just stop by once in a while. Your presence always gives me cause to smile. As always, I wish for you the very best this week!
