"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.”1 Chronicles 16:34a 
“The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.” Psalm 145:9 
“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.” Psalm 34:8

God is so good!  I have not been posting lately as this is a significant month marking the passing of my Sweet William 1 year ago on the 25th of January.  I can hardly believe the year has passed.  I went through and am still going through the stages of mourning but I am gaining ground.  The Lord has been with me through this journey and faith plays such a large part of my healing.
Bill's last Birthday age 72
John 11:25,26  Jesus told her, "I am the one who raises the dead and gives them life again.  Anyone who believes in me, even though he died like anyone else, shall live again.  He is given eternal life for believing in me and shall never perish.  Do you believe this Martha?"  For we know that when this tent we live in is taken down-when we die and leave these bodies-we will have wonderful new bodies in heaven, homes that will be ours forevermore, made for us by God himself, and not by human hands.  How weary we grow of our present bodies...We want to slip into our new bodies so that these dying bodies will, as it were, be swallowed up by everlasting life.  This is what God has prepared for us and as a guarantee, he has given us his holy spirit. 2 Corinthians 5:1,2,4,5  Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will give us later.  Romans 8:18

My faith in God has sustained me through a difficult year learning to live as one.  I feel as though half of me was severed abruptly and I was scarred.  But the Lord has been healing the wound and taken the scar replacing it with love and goodness, patience and strengthened my faith with his daily presence to help me through.  I take comfort in knowing that my husband now lives with the Lord and that one day we will be re-united in a new way in God's Kingdom.  We are all saved by grace alone.

Are you facing loss, changes, difficulties in your life that you feel no one understands?  Turn to Jesus and the Father, invite them into your heart so that you might have a change of heart (be born again) and start anew in Christ.  God's arms are always open to welcome you in no matter what your past.

Hebrews 8:12  "And I will be merciful to them in their wrongdoings, and I will remember their sins no more." One of God's greatest gifts, forgiveness!  He thinks of your sins no more and you are unburdened by them also as Christ His Son has already died for your sins so that you might have everlasting life.

I pray for each and everyone of you to grow closer to God, to attend a church of your choosing, to share the Lord with your children, your friends, family and yes, even strangers.  Every kind act you perform is a witness to His name and existence.  Let all see His light in your eyes and in your heart.

Much Love and God's blessing to all of you, enjoy every blessed day God give's you.

In Love, Kerrie
My Christian heart to yours...
