Looking for some encouragement for women? As I sit here sipping my hot coffee – cream, no sugar – and listening to the kids play outside, I’m reflecting on 2016.
WOW! So much has happened.
We sold our home and moved to Mexico. I worked (and I am still working) on my writing and blogging skills. Although I did not add any clients to my VA business, I have learned so much through working with them.
And that’s what life is about. Learning and growing from others. It’s not what you can get, but what you can give that matters.
What can you give? Compassion, love, respect, time, gentleness …
How can I be here for you in 2017? What posts can I write to encourage and challenge you in your walk with the Lord? What topics do you need to see on my blog in 2017? Leave a comment or PM me.
Here is the top 5 blog posts of 2016 from my blog.
“God likes to do new things too. He wants to do new things in us and for us. He loves us too much to leave us where we are at. He wants to make us new. He wants to restore us and heal us.
Have you ever gone to an antique shop to find a dingy looking copper serving dish? It’s old, stained and doesn’t shine anymore. However, in the right hands and with the right cleaner, that serving dish can be made new. It will shine and be a beautiful part of the serving collection.
We are like the old serving dish. We need to be cleaned, shined up and be made ready to serve again.”
“I didn’t always pray for my husband. I disappointingly admit this.
To be honest, I’m not sure why I didn’t pray for him. We have been married for 15 years now so I can not use the excuse of being a newly wed or not knowing about such things.
No matter the pitiful excuses I could possibly drum up to make myself feel better. I failed. One of the greatest privileges a wife has is to pray for her husband.”
