  1. So many promises can be found in God's Word.  I'm sure this is a particularly difficult time with the passing of your dad.  Please know that I continue to pray for you and your family Joan.

    blessings and love,

  2. Joan - I love the promises found in God's word. As Debbie said, I'm sure this time has been difficult for you. I'm also praying for you and your family.


  3. oh, i love this list. i will use it in my time in the morning, i think....

  4. A beautiful prayer and a list that is a product of one's love and devotion. I echo every word you wrote, Joan. Sometimes, I sing these words in the tune of a praise chorus. 

    (I included Unholy Union in my linked posts because I want to share my gratitude list which speaks of the beauty of the Lord :)).
