WOW! That letter touched me deeply. Even though it wasn't meant for me, the truths set forth in it were especially for me. Thank you! I will pass it along.


So many beautiful images to ponder...
Thank you, Joanne, for sharing.

Thomas Cranmer would be proud. I can't imagine anyone who would not be encouraged by this letter. If you had written it to me, I would have printed it out and placed it within my Daily Office Book to substitute as a Collect from time to time.

You are a good friend.


How very beautiful and very needed this morning. Thank you for sharing this!

How we need the prayers of friends and the continual strengthening of our Lord. I used the same Scripture in my vlog today. What a privilege it is to live in the body of Christ and to carry the burden of others; they have certainly carried my load in seasons past.

Blessings to you this Mother's Day and in the weeks to come. Sounds like you're headed for an adventure.



Thanks! As I sit here in tears, I know that I needed that today. I needed to be reminded that when I get to the end of my "resources, strenghths, and abilities" (which are so so small), God's are there to carry me through! Thank you for your blog and for being so transparent!
