Joanne, I love what you have written. This world throws so much at us and knowing Jesus is right beside us is the true way to navigate it. The peace that can be gained by giving some of the grief, sorrow and trials we face over to our Lord is incredible. I wish I could express it better, but I don't know how I would be where I am today without the unending love of Jesus. Love to you, dear Joanne, as the trials and sorrow come at you in this season.

There truly are so many needs that it is overwhelming at times to try and remember then all when we PRAY. Where would we be if we didn't have others to call on to help us PRAY? GOD is her present in the times of need.


I couldn't agree with you more! "I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings." Psalm 61:4

Thank you, Joanne. What a blessing for me to read this this morning. Thank you!!! We got home last night, so recouperating has begun. I am feeling broken bodily, but know I am HELD in God’s cupping promises. Not looking forward to next surgery on Oct 1, but know He never leaves us or forsakes us!

This spoke to me in such a wonderful way. There are so many things that have my heart weighed down. Staff that in their brokenness, hurt others. Parents that have moved in with us and the hurt of knowing I will be walking them to their heavenly home, it crushes my heart. Children who live as if they were never raise in a Christian home...Sometimes it is too much..
I pray, picture myself casting...and yet my heart is heavy. Praying with you, Come Lord Jesus, come.

Thank you for this truth. I don’t know if it is the change of seasons, family situations or the discord in our nation but I have been feeling this way also. As we pass our problems to Jesus so wanting the peace that His coming will bring. Thank you sweet lady. I hope you are feeling better when you read this and know that prayers are going up for you daily.
