OUT OF THE CHAOS 03.19.2021

Sunday I developed a really painful back. It was so painful, in fact, that in order to step into our vehicle, I had to lift my leg up with my hands. It was too painful for my leg to do all the work. In addition, I felt like my muscles were seizing up on me. …

If I want my trust in God to diminish, focusing on the mess in my life accomplishes that goal. But if I want my trust in God to grow, expand, take over my life — what must I do to accomplish that? 3O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. Psalm 34:3 …

Wisdom from the Lord… This is what the Lord says: Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord.

Thursday morning I woke up with a bit of a cough. It didn’t bother throughout the day and I didn’t think much about it. By evening, my voice was gone. Not because I overused it or coughed unendingly, it just gave out. Friday was a quiet day. At least for me. Talking took a lot …

I have to set the stage. It was evening after a fun day at the pool, long naps for the girls and dinner at an amazing restaurant. Returning home, I lounged while my daughter and daughter-in-law tried to resolve a problem with our rental car. I watched Harper, the 9 month old, crawling around, exploring …
