    I haven't been posting as there hasn't been anything to say. I stopped doing the Love Dare book. I've been through it 4 times and quite frankly, I've found other books to read. I can't do the dares anyway, as my husband has made it...

    I blew it yesterday. Afterward, I realized there is still so much anger and pride in my heart. I am struggling with discouragement and this terrible sense of failure. Truth is I want all this junk out of my heart even more than I want my husband to love...

    One of the ways I remind myself to keep my eyes on the Lord and remember He is faithful is I've begun recently to look at what He's already done and not what I can't see He's working out for my good. I lost a brother July will be a year...

    In my quiet time this morning, I asked God to give me something new. Hebrews 12 came to mind so I began to read it. I won't copy the scripture here for sake of time and space, but Hebrews 12:4-13 really spoke to me. Vs. 6 says, "because the Lord...
