Hello everyone! And Happy New Y…MONTH
I’m behind WAY BEHIND. I’m Tired BUT it’s a good kind of tired. The kind of tired when you feel like you have accomplished so much. That was my today. This warm spell here in upstate NY was exactly what this girl needed! But tonight I must confess my heart is heavy for a sweet friend. She has been walking a rough road for many years and she is struggling and I don’t blame her one bit. Because I was once there. and it hurts to see such a dear friend going through it too. BUT different. Her name is important and the situation is important but praying for her doesn’t require specific knowledge. Pray for peace, pray for courage to fight with God’s strength not her own. Pray she stay strong in her faith. Pray that she will shine through all that is false. Pray for this sweet woman!
