Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. Isaiah 40:31

a couple years ago i had one of the most trying times of my life...when joe left.  suddenly i felt so alone, with two kids to tend to daily, a house to take care of, working full time...i was stressed beyond stressed.  some days i felt so low, not even quite sure how i was functioning. 

there was one certain night when i was really down, almost at my breaking point...i went up on a hill in the middle of the woods...the sky was covered with stars and i could see for miles around.  i popped in a cd of hymns, sang along, cried my eyes out and talked to God for hours on end.  when i left the hill that night i had something new...HOPE...hope in the Lord restoring my marriage in HIS time. 

the Lord knew i had a few "life lessons" to learn along the way...such as patience and perseverance.  and realizing this happen in his time, not mine.  also during this time both of my children got saved, which was a total blessing. 

three months later the Lord restored my marriage and joe returned to us...He has blessed us with a stronger marriage than i ever could have imagined before!!! 

out for now

Psalms 39:7 "But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.
