I love your blog Joanne, it's very important to me because I get so much inspiration, joy, and guidance from it every day. And please know I am praying for you to be blessed with all you stand in need of. I love the prayer in Jan Karon's books, the characters call it the prayer that never fails and they always pray it when things are the most dire. Their prayer truly is the prayer that never fails and it is something like this:
" Dear Heavenly Father, you know my every need and I pray for your help, and most of all I pray that your will be done."
Love, Barbara


Thank you for sharing your comments. I enjoyed reading this morning prior to starting my work day. I will keep you in prayer. :)


WOW...thanks...that's so right on for our family right now too!

Hey my friend...what a blessing this morning. I too, NEEDED this reminder.

I heard Dr. David Jeremiah say just this morning that a lot of women spend more time concerned with and working on the "outside" which WILL fade, rather than investing on the "inside" which will produce much fruit.

He used Proverbs 31:30 "Charm is deceitful and beauty is fading, but a woman who fears the Lord shall be praised."

You are a blessing!

Wow....sometimes the Message sure does hit it home.

Oh yeah, needed that. Especially after helping to do the math to know which of my co-workers we can't re-hire after the end of this school year. Really, really, really needed that one.
