Who to turn to when discouraged, downhearted, and dismayed you ask? None other than the Precious Lord Jesus. He is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother and is always there for one to lean on if He is one's personal Saviour. When we are afraid of what the future might hold, remember WHO holds the future. Ooo-h, I like that ~ I need to take a few moments to just ponder that very thought. The ONE Who holds the future. One only has to ponder on that thought for a few seconds to think of the absolute truth that statement holds for the Christian. The one that has put their complete trust in the Lord Jesus Christ can ponder on this truth. If I am completely t-r-u-s-t-i-n-g in the Lord, I have only to look to Him for all comfort. He holds this very Universe in His hands and can speak the word for anything He wants to take place. He holds me in that very competent Hand and will not drop me or lay me down and forget where He has placed me. He keeps watch over me that closely. He has placed me here to be His servant and to carry out the things that are His will for my life. He will equip me with His grace, love and wisdom to do the task He has asked me to do. As I live this "Christian life" and try to walk in the Light of His Truth, I learn more everyday that I live, that He cares for me and loves me like no other. I find myself looking Heavenly-ward more with each passing day. I am learning in the deepest sense that this is truly not my home, but that I am just a-passing thru! That makes me homesick!! Homesick for Heaven. Hallelujah! No troubles we face, be it national, international or be it personal, surprises or catches The LORD JESUS CHRIST off guard. He is not surprised by any incident that takes place on the face of the globe. And certainly not in my ~ His child's ~ life. He knows the number of every hair on my head and knows when a little sparrow falls. He certainly cares for and loves me, oh blessed thought. O, my LORD and Saviour, with all my trust firmly secured in Thee, how can I stay discouraged, downhearted, and dismayed when ThouArt my Friend and Brother! Thank Thee, Lord Jesus, for "sticking to me". Until We Meet Again...
I'm in my mid-fifties(starting on the other side of mid, as of now.) I am a Mother and an adoring Gan-Gan. My daughter and granddaughter are the apples of my eye. My interests are far and wide. I love teaching Sunday School to little kids at my church--it is so rewarding. Family is everything, both kin and church family. What fellowship is to be had with both!! I am a girlie-girl who loves everything "PINK". My daughter tells me that I live in the "Original Barbie House" because of ALL the pink. And oh, did I mention my love of ROSES? Everything has got to have a rose motif on it. I love people and am concerned for their souls. My mission is to tell others about the Saving Grace of My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the shedding of HIS precious blood for all those that will believe. God loves HUMAN BEINGS!!! My own "Life Verse" is Romans 8:28- "For all things work together for the good of them that love God, to them who are the called according to HIS purpose." I want to be used according to His Precious, Perfect will for my life. My desire is to share my life's journey with YOU. What a pleasure it's going to be.

Life is Full of Wonder
Life is a wonderful journey, filled with all sorts of ups and downs and in betweens. There's always that very interesting person to meet right around the corner, or maybe it's a "just can't remember where I put the thing" kind of day. My blog is just that, life's little stories, no matter how quaint or unconsequential they be, you'll hear about it here. We can laugh, cry, or just muse about the day's events together. Yes, life is full of wonderful little happenings. I, for one, am interested in them and in YOU, my dear reader. Hence, this blog is born. Let us start our journey together, shall we?
