Pondering these things in my heart ...
In the wake of the martyrdom of Christians worldwide ... so many killed while gathering for worship and prayer:
In all seasons of life, always remember that no one, no circumstance, no government, no hateful, demonized terrorist/terrorists (at home or abroad), can take away our freedom to pray, and to believe that Jesus Christ is God who has come in the flesh. He gave up His own life to grant us mercy, freedom, liberty and the grace to overcome any sin, weakness or difficulty! He gives us grace upon grace to forgive those who persecute us, even in the face of martyrdom!
God's Love Wins Souls!
Does anyone care? Yes!

John 16:33 ... The Father is with me. I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties.
As God would have it, yesterday turned out to be a day of prayer, research and
writing about the heart-breaking reality of the "Fatherless
Generation." Thankfully, we can all rejoice in the PROMISE of God to intervene! This is not a new
subject for me, but I felt a nudging from God our Father to address it for yet
another generation. I've been looking up different translations of this
wonderful verse God gave me years ago re: the loss of parents. (By the
time you finish reading each of these translations of the very same verse (see bottom of this post), it
will be a very rich life-giving, thirst-quenching revelation for you to share
Way back in the late 70's, early 80's, I went through an extremely difficult season of sorrow and loss. During that 5 years, I was meditating in and through the book of Job, literally one verse at a time. It was during this time that Jesus made Job 42:2 so very real to me. It was said by Job AFTER God confronted him, and BEFORE he forgave his friends and all was restored to him.
Job answered God,
"I know that You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained, withheld, or thwarted.
January 26, 2013 was my very first
"Walk For Life." This event struck my heart personally. Why? In 1966,
when I was 19 years old I found myself pregnant outside of wedlock. I was going
to school at the time, living in the nurse's dorm and fully expecting to become
a nurse. I was not planning on getting pregnant, married or raising a family.
When I told my boyfriend that I was pregnant, he then told his buddies who were
quick to offer finances to fly my boyfriend and I to Mexico for an abortion.
when I was out walking, a beautiful young woman w/her precious newborn baby
approached me with her cardboard sign asking for help. (Normally, I would
have taken her grocery shopping.) However, I didn't have anything on
me to help her, but I wasn't far from my car, so I told her to come with me and
I'd give her something. Well, she couldn't understand me, and even though
I was pointing toward my car on the other side of the parking lot, she turned
and walked away.
I am a writer, not "published," but a writer. It all started when my mother gave me a "diary" for my tenth birthday. She told me to write my thoughts and prayers in it. I have been keeping a diary/journal ever since. I have written so much, that I have a trunk filled with journals! There are several books in me waiting for God's "kairos" time to manifest. Some day, I will publish ... for now, I will just put my thoughts, a tiny taste of what I see Jesus doing in the lives of those I meet by His design .
