Hello, dear sisters!
I’d like to share a quick update and let you know that I have not forgotten about you. There is just a lot going on.
I realized my family needed more of my support recently, so I am occupied now in the mornings when I would usually write posts. It is hard for me to tear myself away from writing, but it is obvious this is where I need to be in the mornings. Everyone is doing well now. I just needed to be more present.
Also, Greg’s 57-year-old cousin passed away suddenly from a heart attack last week. That hit close to home. We were thankful for the opportunity to support the rest of the family and spend some time with them.
Another reminder of the brevity of life and what a precious gift each day is. We have had several people in their 40s and 50s close to our circle pass away in the past week.
I want so much for everyone to be ready.
I pray that everyone will take the time today to be sure they are in right relationship with the Lord through faith in Jesus. I want everyone to be able to set their relationships with people right, too.
None of us are guaranteed another day.
I want to see us all live without regrets. I want to see us ready to meet God at any moment, confident that we can rejoice when we see Him because we have no doubts we are in Christ.

I am also facing some medical issues that cause me to have to slow down some (peri-menopause kinds of things and a prolonged shoulder injury, normal stuff, nothing major).
Slowing down is one of my least favorite things to do. But this is just where I am right now. Sometimes God slows me down so I will look up to Him and stop.
I know this is an opportunity to allow God to be my strength more than ever. There are always new surprises and challenges. So Greg and I make adjustments and pivot with the changing issues, seeking to navigate the new obstacles in ways that honor the Lord.
In recent weeks, I have also felt God’s call to come away with Him to pray. Pray for our country and the world. Pray for the church and all of you. Pray for my family and me. I also know He is preparing and equipping me (and all of us) for what is coming.
He has been very gracious to do this for me in the past before we faced big trials in our family. And I sense He is working now to get us ready for something new.
I have been itching to write more posts, and even wrote a few, but then felt God clearly whispering, “Wait. Not yet. I want you to Myself for awhile. I want to work with just you right now.” I have learned it is not wise to run ahead of God when He asks me to be still and wait.
I have endeavored to wait on Him and sit and be still before Him, reading massive doses of His Word, praying, journaling, and inviting Him to work in me and do anything He wants to do in my heart and mind. My plan is to continue to do so.
God is working in powerful ways and I want to be open to all He wants to do in me and in the world around me. He asks me to let go of a lot of old things and lay new things on the altar before Him. He is reminding me of His sovereignty, goodness, promises, and love. I also want to be open to all He wants to do through me in His timing by His Spirit.
I miss you all!!! And I love you dearly.
Please pray for God’s wisdom and leading for me. Please also pray for God to work powerfully in each of my readers and across all of His people for His glory right now. And please pray for America and the world as we are facing a difficult road. How I long to see millions repent and turn to Jesus.
I hope to write as I am able and as I believe the Lord leads me to share.
Thanks for your encouragement, love, prayers, and support.
Much love in Christ!
