Please Forgive Me

Please forgive me for not having posted in a while.  I was sick over Christmas and then very shortly after the New Year we had a family emergency which took us from home for about three weeks.  My cousin was in intensive care for over a week and then my dear Aunt discovered she had cancer.  However, I want to praise the Lord for putting my husband and me in a position where we could go and help.  He took an early retirement - we got rid of,  gave away, sold most of our "things" and moved into a trailer next to my brother.  What a relief to not have so many "things" to cling to.  AND, because we sold our nice home, we are now completely out of debt! 
You know, it's so comforting to know that  Jesus sees so far into my life and makes a way, a path to do His will.  I have looked back over the years and, what seemed at the time like tragedies, have ended up "working out for our good."   Because in our weakness, He is made strong! 
Yes, it's very hard when you are in that trial or valley to truly understand all the "why's" and "what if's".   But isn't that where our faith comes in? 
Well, just wanted you dear folks to know I've thought about you.....I do pray for any needs sent my way, and hope this post finds all of you well and joyful.
Please pray for my husband and me as we continue to seek His will for the "now" time in our lives.
And, by the way, I haven't seen my grandchildren since before Christmas.....and I miss them so much!!!   Hopefully, we will be able to return home soon and then "Mimi" and "Grandpa" can go visit their little "munchkins!"


  1. Amen, all things work for our good. I am praying for you guys:)

  2. Thank you so much Toyin....can use all the prayers we can get right now :)

  3. Oh, this is wonderful and speaking to me where I am right now--where my husband and I are. We are thinking about when we get 'older'... he is 60, I am 57. We want to move, we want to get rid of things--we don't want our home to own us--we want to be near children and grandchildren. I find myself looking around at the pretties and mementos in my home and wondering how I could get rid of them---I know I can't take them with me--to Heaven nor to a smaller home, which is what we want. We do not know what the future holds for us... you are such an encouragement. We are debt free except for the house (not a huge, expensive place, believe me). It will be interesting to see what unfolds. Thank you for your post.
