Have Hope

"...I will not fear. What can man do to me?"

I don't believe bad things come from God. I believe bad things come from the evil one. I learned this as a 10-year-old living in a boarding school; evil was present and God showed up to help me through it. He did not rescue me, but He comforted me, and through that experience, God turned the evil to good in many ways, the most significant that I am a better mother than I could have ever been without that moment in the grips of hell.

When God allows the evil one's ways to happen, we can be assured that this does not mean the evil one is winning. Have hope. We are on the side that wins.

"You pushed me violently that I might fail, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation." (Psalm 118)

Hey!  It's 5/18 and tonight I've been working on making the site more mobile. That switch has made the entire site go wonky, so please be patient with me and I'll try to get all of the work completed by the end of the week!

On Instagram.

I forget, sometimes, that not everyone is on Instagram.  I remembered that tonight, when I handed my husband my phone with my Insta open, and he browsed mine and our daughter's photos for over a half hour.  Huh.  I guess he doesn't see all of those everyday shots.  

To keep from being redundant, I don't tend to post many photos on the blog now that Instagram is my mini-blog.  But I think I'll start being redundant.  I mean, why not, and then the photos are kept safely here, in my online journal where I already know how much I'll treasure them later (I have photos here on this blog of my little boy now turned college student).

I'm adding this to my 2015 goals list, along with embroidering more often, doing calligraphy/penmanship/writing on things, stressing less about our college kid, saying 'no' more, visiting the beach more, blogging here more, working on FreelyHomeschool.com more, ....okay, yeah, I need to whittle it down, but those are the things going through my mind.  But first! Christmas!
