Strangely Calm

Four years ago today I wrote these words.

"They are starting the drugs for the surgery and bringing in the consent forms to sign so he will be ready if they (the new lungs) are a match. I am strangely calm."

That "strange" calmness that carried me through what was anything but calm isn't really strange at all when you know Jesus. When everything around you is in turmoil and at times you can't see a hint of light breaking through he wraps you in his peace that is beyond anything the human mind can understand. Storms will come but so will peace. The love of God is mightier than the waves of the ocean. Blessings and peace on your day!

Got Goals?

Happy New Year friends!

There is just something exciting about beginning a brand new year. 365 days of possibilities stretch before us. Most of us have at least a few goals we would like to accomplish in 2020. I read an interesting statistic about New Year's resolutions. Sadly it seems most people give up on them by January 12th. That's bad news! The good news is if you are not MOST people. God says that through Christ we are more than over comers! I love the promise of today's verse that says when we commit whatever we do to the Lord he establishes our plans! It's then that we will succeed! Whatever your goals are for the coming year don't forget to commit them to God first! And perhaps you might ask him just what his goals for you are. They may be bigger than yours! May you be blessed on this 2nd day of this new year! Have a wonderful day!
