On August 29, I wrote about my back issues and the prognosis from the Chiropractor followed by just how amazingly quickly God seemed to be at work behind the scenes in my situation. I’m not going to go
Throughout life, we encounter hurt, pain, love, joy, blessing and suffering (and so much more!). This is regardless of our upbringing and just because it's part of life, and (eventually) the consequence of choices that we make. But how we carry all that, how we deal with that, whether it's great or oh so
A couple of weeks ago, my husband shared a news article about a fentanyl dealer being arrested, charged and facing court. Almost two years ago friends of his lost their teenage son after he had taken an opiate drug at a party, which was unknowingly laced with fentanyl.

Blessed be the God and Father of my Lord Jesus Christ, for You have blessed me with every spiritual blessing in the Heavenly places in Christ! Just as You chose me in Him, before the foundation of the world, that I should be holy and without blame before You, in love, having predestined me into adoption by Jesus Christ himself, according to the good
