  1. I was so happy with last year’s planner I already ordered and received this one. In those weeks where there is almost too much to do, I just need to look at the top of the page and read the printed verse. It helps put things in perspective. It also is a reminder of how I am connected to all of you and what this site means to me. Thank you everyone.

  2. Had a REALLY hard/bad day yesterday and could use some prayers!

  3. Dear Anna…I enjoyed reading your story today as I live on the East Coast and always wondered what it was like out where you are. It sounds lovely and I do remember to look out my window when I get up to see what wonders God has left me today. I always praise him for many things. Took me awhile to do this as I am in a very complicated situation for over a year now and sometimes that just stays in my mind, but the more I read your stories and use my (in)courage books and journals, the better I feel and just know I need to be patient and things will come to a conclusion when God is ready. I have learned a couple of positive things from Him and my Holy Spirit and of course, I try to follow Jesus’s path, but as human beings, we sometimes make mistakes and I do if I knew it was a mistake, I pray for forgiveness. Thank you again for your story. Have a great day. Here in the East we struggle this year with one day it is 50 and the next day it is 80. We are all over 75 years old and our bodies have difficulty adjusting to this and we never know what to wear so right now we still can’t put our winter clothes away until the weather stabilizes.

  4. Anna,

    Planers are great help to busy people. Bible verses also aid & remind us to keep our focus on God in busy seasons. Right now it is rainy outside. But some days it can be cool & colorful on the Smokey Mountains.

    Blessings 🙂
