Oh, Kathryn, if July is tough, I don't want to even tell you how hard august and september are.
((in my "prime" when he died suddenly but had a baby in my arms to buffer the blow))
13 years, .... months, .... days and counting, no ring on this finger.....................Oh God, can't believe I just took the time to figure this out!
Ray, why couldn't you have been born a few years younger?
Terry, thanks for jumping in, welcome, and I miss the passenger seat!
Carrie, you nailed it. We want mental, emotional, physical AND spiritual health and God gives us the guidelines to do it, thank you.
Yes, Kay, offering it up, watching to see what miracle God performs with my meager offering works better than anything else I have tried, watching Him perform miracles with the small and big offerings make the sacrifice more than worthwhile, it brings true JOY into my 'plugger' lifestyle - referring to the comic strip Linda, take you mind out of the gutter.
This has been one of the best threads I have read, so glad I read it through from start to finish,
You are all the reason why I am still here on CM!
So human, compassionate and humble, all of you! love you all!
