44 1/2...

Yesterday was my 44 1/2 birthday. It might not mean anything significant to any of you, but it meant something to me. My mom past away exactly on her 44 1/2 birthday. (That will be 26 years ago, June 29th).

I know that I'm washed in the blood of JESUS and I shouldn't have worried about it, but somehow it was always in the back of my mind...will I live longer than my mom? The devil aways has a way of nagging at us, keeping us from focusing on GOD's perfect will for our lives. It's his kill, steal, and destroy! Thank goodness we are redeemed. Thank goodness that we have the victory through JESUS' death and resurrection!

If you don't have peace that passes all understanding, if fear, doubt, and insecurity have taken over your peace...turn to JESUS. HE is there with open arms to hold you and comfort you, to give you peace that passes all understanding.


I bet you all are wondering about moving to Fargo, etc...I'll try to share that in the next few weeks. In the meantime, I would appreciate prayers. Our house in TX hasn't sold, and we really need to buy something before winter sets in here (which will come sooner than I would like...) So if you all don't mind, please pray. Thanks!

Blessings until next posting!

Wow! I would have had that nagging little doubt in the back of my mind too.

I'll be praying that your house sells quickly.

I was so excited to see you back online! Woo-hoo!!

I'm so happy to hear from you! I'm glad you are now older than 44 1/2. Now you can look forward to being a grandmother, be old and gray, sitting on your front porch in a comfy rocker. I will keep you in my prayers, and I'm standing with you that your house in Texas will sell quickly.
