Focus on Him

It's true.

I don't fit in.  

But that's o.k., for my world is taken up with all that I love.

My unique home life, and an abundance of critters.

My best friend, 
hubby Russ, 
who had a birthday yesterday...
he's catching up to me...

And most of all, Jesus.
From whom all blessings flow...

My focus is on Him.

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, 
neither angels nor demons, 
neither the present nor the future, 
nor any powers, 
neither height nor depth, 
nor anything else in all creation, 
will be able to separate us from the love of God 
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:38-39

It's quite a journey.  

Until next time, dear friends.  God willing.

P.S.  I'm officially off Facebook now, FYI.
I feel lighter already...more on that later...
(...and yes, I miss all my Facebook friends, but...we can connect in so many other ways...)

What an encouragement your words are!:-) Your posts always remind me to focus on what is MOST important, the Lord for without HIM nothing we have would be possible. I have also "officially" left facebook recently and it is really helping me to refocus! Thank you again for blessing others while sharing your heart.

I love your post because I always admire and have so much respect for people who are who they are and know what's most important--That's how I try to live my life too! ...Except I'm on facebook, it's the only way I can keep up with my brothers! :-)

I absolutely loved this when it came through on my email today. It really helped me as I have been on FB too much and life is flying by without me getting anything done, including less time with HIM. Thank you so much for your blog! May God bless you always.

On the phone w/ my sweet Papa this morning, and out of the blue he asked, "how is it between you and the Lord?" That was such an encouraging thing to be asked and to be able to answer in full confidence because of His faithfulness. And now this encouraging post, we're just passing through sister!

Blessings to you ~ Sisters in Christ. What a delight to see your comments upon my return to our local Library (we do not have Internet access at our home...:) THANK YOU, each and every one of you for your sweet words of encouragement. I wish you the best weekend ever...and I can't wait to visit your Blogs (and catch up) soon.

I've been thinking of leaving FB, too, so reading your words were like a confirmation!

God bless!
