This is a place for me to share what God is showing me and sometimes the lessons that come along with that. I will occasionally share stories of how my children amaze me, frustrate me but most of all make my life a pure joy. I love my God, my husband and my children. Join me in Great Plains Living.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9
The last few days have not been easy ones in our household. Our town is in danger of flooding, along with much of the rest of our state. We have water in our basement, my son's car won't start and the power steering appears to be out in my van. Our 2 dogs got out together last night and they're still not home. Except for the flooding, none of these things by themselves are all that serious but put together they add up to more than I think I can handle. I'm afraid to ask "what next?" because I don't want to find out.
Last night, while I was crying out to God, He reminded me of the these verses. " We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed but not in despair; persecuted but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed."
I so needed to hear these words! Things are tough and may get tougher but my God will not abandon me. He will not let the enemy destroy me. Isn't that the best news of all?
