So…Your Everything?

I haven’t written a post like this one in a while, but it’s been heavy on my heart. More people than I could have ever imagined have been writing in. People are suffering, hurting, longing to find joy.

A dear friend of mine has been through the wringer. Life has not been easy. At all. And there are days she wants to throw in the towel. But she shared with me how she knows she needs her focus in the right place. She longs to have that sweet relationship with our Savior. She wants HIM to be her everything.

In our society of selfishness, pride, and the pursuit of material things – it’s not the norm. Most Americans who profess to be Christians today might spend a few minutes a week on their relationship with the Lord. They go to church (sometimes) and treat their neighbors and friends in ways …

Yes, my husband had bilateral knee replacements almost four weeks ago. He’s still in a lot of pain and we’re still lacking a LOT of sleep – but again, I’ll save that for another blog…

Yes, there have been wildfires burning all over our beautiful state – and one even destroyed part of our city. …
