If ever I have been tempted to be shaken, it has been within the last year. In my family, there are a lot of transitions. We will probably move, my husband is changing careers, and I have two ever-growing little people to care for and love. Most of all, I see what is happening in our nation and wonder if the country we love will exist for my children's children one day. I can only pray that it will and that we the people of God will resist the enemy, submit to God, and pray for freedom and truth in Christ to exalt us as a nation again. Today I simply want to say that no matter what God brings you and me through, nothing will separate us from His love. My comfort, my joy, and my strength come from His constant, unchanging presence. God bless you today with an unshakeable faith!

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37,38 Laurie

  2. Laurie and Russell,

    May God lay His hands on both of your efforts on this blog. May it find its way into the hearts, minds and souls of those thirsting for the living water that always satisfys! I too, wonder the same things you are blogging about.

    My husband works for my over-demanding brother, who finds fault in the smallest of things. He doesn't have the same values we share and believes he is helping our family out by making my hubby work. Hours = money, should make things financially better for you. Even if that means, we don't see him for 5 weeks.

    We have already agreed that this job has a cost we aren't willing to sacrifice for our almighty paycheck that is helping us catch up. However, it's so hard to get this person, who is a believer at one time, to see the sense in it. Instead he chooses to see things from a business and worldly perspective.

    Will you both lift him up in prayer that God will call him back to Him and he will see things through God's eyes and set his priorities straight and along God's path? His name is Mike and he is my brother!

    God love you both for what you are doing!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
