"For God so loved the world that HE gave HIS one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Today, I am so grateful that our eternity is not based on a 'stimulus' package or any other worldly choices that may be made.

Today, I am so thankful that our life on earth is momentary and we have HOPE of a perfect future in Christ Jesus.

Today, while our economy is fragile at best and people are losing hope in the world's system, I am grateful that we can offer true and lasting HOPE in Jesus Christ.

Today, I am wondering how many people I will take to heaven with me.

What about you?

Hi Friends,

I am quite sure most of you are thinking I have fallen off the face of the earth. I assure you ~ I have not ~ yet my life has taken on so many changes of late I find myself just learning how to adjust my days to accomodate everybody's needs. Adjustments!!

Now that my husband is home full time and I work full time ~ I find he is desirous of my time while I am home which has seriously cut into my computer time. Adjustments!!

As I may have mentioned awhile back I started a new business that is now taking off and again ~ Adjustments!! Happy ones though:)

I also began teaching a Ladies Bible Study at our church last week which I know I will love ~ Adjustments!!

Learning to live on one income while building a business is changing our diets along with our shopping habits ~ Adjustments!!

The process of applications for disability and social security along with figuring out what to do about medical insurance has brought many hours on the internet but NOT of the FUN sort ~ Adjustments!!!!

My list could go on and on but I won't bore you. I will just say that my life is not my own and is God's ~ for that I am grateful ~ yet making necessary Adjustments each day.

Oh - BTW - the winner of my last Book Review and Give-A-Way is:::

Congratulations and please email me your address so I can get the book in the mail.

As I continue to Adjust to my new life I will be attempting to find special moments to share with you and attempt to read and catch up on your lives and journeys also.

Considering Adjustments Necessary and Joyful!

Rejoice My Soul!

I wasn't sure if I would be able to post at all this week about Jennifer Rothschild's book due to 'ISSUES' but I just didn't want to miss a week of posting and BOASTING in God's Greatness!!!!!!!

I must admit that I did not get chapter 5 read this week. I have been nearly debilitated with migraines for the past several weeks. I believe it is due to stress and it has taken everything out of me just to go to work each day. I come home between 4:30 and 6:00 PM just to get in my jammies and sleep until 6:00 AM the next day.

Monday night was so bad that I told God I was just done and that I couldn't take the pressure anymore BUT that I trusted HIM to work things out.

Tuesday morning we received excellent news regarding some money that was owed to us for over a year. Guess what God did - It is now in my checking account!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday afternoon my husband got word that his medical insurance is good through April!!!!!!!

God is so faithful!

Today is the first day I have not had a migraine and I have not taken one pill all day!!!!!!!!!!!!

Though I have not read the chapter I just needed to BOAST about God's faithness and goodness.

I still do not know how this season of our lives will play out but I do know that confession of HIS promises is how we make it through.

No matter what we face in life - when we keep our eyes focused on God - He will see us through. Some days are tougher to trust than others - but all days are to be considered with joy because of His plan.

I will prayerfully be back on track by next week and looking forward to visiting your blogs and again rejoicing with you as God works in each of your lives.

Considering Even The Most Difficult Of Days With JOY!!
