"Surely we are not sufficiently sensible of the infinite tenderness of Jesus!" Spurgeon. Psalm 62: 8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. "When grief presses you to the dust, worship there, 'pour out your heart before Him. God is a refuge for us.' This sweetens sorrow and takes away it's sting." Spurgeon.
I am really not very good at doing anything here @ Face Book. But I do so love to stay in touch with all you wonderful people! What have we been up to, you ask? We have had a tough and busy year (who wouldn't be with 8 lovely kids). But God has been amazing through it all. Doug has a fantastic job, we enjoy our n...ew home, my parents have moved round the corner, we are very blessed to be involved with starting up a new church, Jessica is loving her child care studies. I won't bore you with all the hardships and heartaches, but I am so pleased I took time years ago to read 'Trusting God even when life hurts' by Jerry Bridges see http://www.amazon.com/Trusting-God-Even-When-Hurts/dp/0891096175. And I highly recommend it to all, even if you are not a christian. I also like http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Questions-John-Blanchard/dp/0852343299/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1272157528&sr=1-1 Life is so short, I have lost two best friends in the past, none of us knows when our time here is over....so live life 'in all it's abundance'. See the beautiful picture of Jesus our shepherd giving us such a life in John 10:1-10 http://www.gnpcb.org/esv/search/?q=John+10 Love to all you, Joy
