As many of you know, I’m in a difficult season right now. But it’s been particularly difficult in the past couple months or so, as I’ve been feeling extra unwell much of the time and have missed a lot of church. Often, I do not have the energy or mental focus even to read the Bible. Gone is my prayer
Hello my dear readers, I’ve pulled away from blogging for a while because I believe the Lord has been leading me to do so. I stopped blogging around the time I fell down the stairs – mid October.

Thanksgiving for These Believers Paul and Silvanus and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace. We give thanks to God always for all of you, making mention of you in our prayers; constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of our God
