I'm a silly person and love a good chuckle! I believe I am a bit on the ditsy side but who's keeping score?! ha On a more serious note: I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul! And my husband and children (family) are the most important things in my life! Hope I can be a blessing to those of you willing to torture yourselves and read this blog! LOL

Silly blogspot has issues with comments. If you can't comment on my blog don't worry "YOU're not alone"!!! haha It's nothing personal or not that I know of. Because I can't comment either! BUT... If you choose the option: "Name/URL" and enter your name and if you have a website or blog you "can" but don't have to enter it. THEN you CAN comment. This is a just so you know. I don't wanting anyone going away without sharing their thoughts! Or thinking that we have something against them! We LOVE you! :)

I am so thankful for a God that has given us a handbook and not only does it tell us the things we should stay away from it gives us "encouragement".  HOPE!!!  I can't say it enough!  I am so thankful!!!!

I have to admit I am weak.  When I read about Job in the Bible I think "wow, what a strong man!"  I will then think, "could I be that strong?"  I seem to see myself being Job's wife.  But I would never curse God and die.  Or in the way that I believe the text means.  I might be off.  But I do get weak and allow worry and fear in.  God says He has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind!  I am "encouraged."  See even when I get weak God had a verse to remind me of His POWER!!  I may be weak but He has the POWER over all and if I put my Faith in Him and trust Him, I can make it through the valley!

Here are a few verses I am holding to today:

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22).

 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works"

2 Timothy 3:16-17
