  1. This New Year and beginning of a whole new decade finds me choosing a certain word and attitude that helps me move into the future as every new year invites us to do.

    ENDURE is that word. It is the word that describes a life of faith and puts the focus on our choice to persevere one day at a time and year after year. To endure is where our faith comes fully alive.

  2. In Courage,

    2019 started out with a sort of fizzle bang if you will. I was laid off from my part time job. I was anxiously happy as I thought God had something bigger & better in store for me. Yes He did!! I now work ICU Step Down clerical at hospital. Get to help RNs, CNAs & patients. Was originally just 2 days a week. Turned into 2 days then 3 days next week & more whenever either secretary wants off. Have put in 45 hrs one week. Toughest job you’ll ever love. It ended on a rather sour note. My FIL died from stage III bladder cancer, bladder infection & bilateral ischemic attack & probably another one Monday before Thanksgiving. He had been sick late summer & all fall. It was a kind of blessing in that his suffering ended. Now MIL has to deal with getting rid of stuff & deciding where she wants to live when house sells. She herself has some health issues. There were some good times in between. 2020 promises to be a great year for my family. We are going to make some drastic changes & start enjoying life together. We’ve been dealing with aging parents for 12 years off & on. Can’t wait to see how God will use us in 2020.

    Blessings 🙂
