Romans 12:12 says, "Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer."
We rejoice in the knowledge that our hope is accompanied by expectation ~ the expectation that He will do what He says He will do. Almighty God is holy and cannot or will not lie. Our hope or expectation is sustained thru Him and we should rejoice therein. I Thessalonians 5:16 "Rejoice everymore." He IS our hope! "Tribulation worketh patience", according to Romans 5:3. We develop the virtue of patience by way of great misery or distress, or in other words ~ trials and storms ~ that we experience in our lives. With the grace of our Lord, we can endure the storms of life and learn this great virtue. Finally, we as Christians, should pray diligently ~ with care and persevering as I Thessalonians 5:17 tells us, "Pray without ceasing."
Thank Thee, Father, for the great expectation we have in Thee, for supplying Thy grace as we learn patience, and for the open line to Heaven. 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?
