Oh, Holly, I'm so sorry I missed your birthday, but I hope it was truly a Blessed & Happy one!!! I think there was a reason I read yesterday's a day late..I needed it more today..Your "therapy" is good for me each time I read it..Been thinking...How can anyone doubt there is an all-knowing God in control of our lives when so many people read what you write & it seems to be "just what they need" each time? He's there, in each of our lives, working, listening always, & loving us always! Thank you so much for your encouraging words. There have to be days you have trouble sending us that inspiration & we need to pray for you, as well!
St. Luke 18:27 "And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." I stand amazed in His presence, especially lately, as I've witnessed so many answers to prayers (large and small) and grown through praying with true faith! Praise His Holy Name!
I just prayed for you, Carolyn! I've been where you are & Holly's words for today should be a Great help, but your Greatest help is in having faith that God is in control & with faith, will listen to & answer your prayers for help with this trip! You'll feel SO much better having accomplished this & will realize you are not really alone at all. Lots of us have been there & God left you here for a reason even though he took your husband. One day it will probably all be clear, so know you're prayed for & loved. He created someone just like you for His own reasons & His own glory. He loves you & wants you to have His peace right now. This time of driving, seeing the world He has created, etc. can be very healing! Stay Strong!

WOW! Just have to thank you really Big for sharing this with us! I myself have a giant desire and tendency to "jump ahead" with ideas I believe God has given me to reach others for Him...But to be sure those ideas are actually His, & not mine alone, you have written a phrase here that reached out & touched me like a bolt of lightening! I wrote it down, plan to put it on my facebook page also (credited of course to your name) and with the hope that it will help others as well. You said "Look at The Journey as the thing to strive for and not The Destination!" I get So very impatient due to an incurable, unpredictable, & very painful eye disease I have..It "unpredictably" interferes with "my" plans in a way that can be very discouraging. But "my plans" are not necessarily God's plans for me, & the Journey has been all about learning that. Thank you, again! Blessings, Rita
