Oh, my friend, may that teaching never end. Praying for you to grasp your heart's desire.

I will sit up with you in SA until you cannot keep your eyes open, if you'd like. I can sleep when I get home :)
Love and prayers,


One of the first Psalms that ever "spoke to me" was Psalm 42. I had read it over and over and over that morning when all of a sudden...BAM! It hit me. I LOVE when God does this! I, too, pray that He would do it more.
Missed you. Hope you got some sleep last night.

Hi Joanne!
I met your awesome, sweet husband in San Diego over the weekend and was sooo excited to get on your blog! Being the ADD and OCD person that I am, I proceeded to read your entire blog! I know, get a life Linda!
I love your blog and see that we have similar kindred spirits Joanne! I can't wait to meet you someday.
My husband has several CD's and one of my favorite songs that he wrote many years ago was from Psalm 42. Thank you for sharing how God met you in the stillness of that night.
