Hello My Dear Readers,
Man, it has been quite a LONG time! I can’t help but feel guilty that I have let the busyness of
this world get the best of me lately. I did what I keep telling all of you not to do. I started letting
the cares of this world take away some of what I call “peace spaces, or spaces of peace”.
But I’m back and I have something to share that I hope will help each of you keep your peace
and remember life is too short not to do the things you love like sitting in the silence of your
room with your thoughts and a typewriter at hand…
Last week, I was truly able to live with my “arms wide open, [standing in awe of the One who
created it all]”. Everything I had been taught about Love, God, Jesus Christ, and the importance
of our Faith was put into action in a city called Cuenca with amazing people who go to the
remote areas of Ecuador and spread the love of Jesus Christ to children who literally RUN to
hear it! I saw God move in new ways, I experienced friendships being made, I witnessed God’s
love, and I stood in what seemed like a valley surrounded by mountains, with streams of water
rushing beneath, above and underneath us! I stood there happy for the pain, grateful for the new
people God had brought into my life, and appreciative for all the saints who had gone before me
over the years praying, and speaking blessings into my life: my grandparents, my parents, the
elders of the churches I grew up in, and many more! It was so surreal that just writing about it
takes me into a state of euphoria.
I tell you all this to say, never regret anything that happens in your life. Remember that the word
of God tells us that “ALL things work for our good!”. His word tells us that we might cry for a
night, but joy comes in the morning. And when you are frustrated because you couldn’t buy that
TV you wanted, remember there are children in the world, in 2019, that do not even have
electricity or running water, but RUN to a mountain side just to hear the word of God. Things
we can have and do every day. Be grateful, love with all your heart, and look for God, seek His
kingdom and His righteousness, and all the things in your life that do not make sense will be put
into its place. His word works all things out.
So, as you make it through the week, remember to be grateful, to love and be loved, and to seek
God in all you do. I promise your life will be forever changed.
Until next week I pray love, kindness, laughter and joy into your lives!
