A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

The End of a Year…..

There is so much about life that I don’t understand…..



Sitting here thinking about this old year that is about to end, and…..I’m not ready for it to end. Still, I am a bit excited about the possibilities ahead in a new year.

This old year has contained so much. There has been, and still is, a lot of sorrow as I have watched friends and family leave this earth or endure terrible sickness. It’s very painful and disturbing for everyone to have to go through so much loss, actual and potential.



Some are suffering right now as I say all this. I’m still trying to overcome a long term cold/cough or I could visit. All I can do is pray……pray for healing, pray for comfort, pray for strength, pray for peace. My thoughts are with you even though I’m not there.



There have been joys and blessings this old year. A new grandson. New relationships. Learning more about myself. Becoming wiser. Taking on new responsibilities. Making new friends. Learning to wait on God.

I don’t know what the new year holds but I do know the One who holds it and i am just going to trust Him in it and with it.

For those of you who don’t know Him yet, there is never a better time than right now to reach out to God, in your sorrow, in your pain, in your joy, and learn how to trust Him in it all, and how to rest in Him in the midst of it.



He is the one who can bring healing of the body, mind and soul. Though physical healing is not always granted in this life, and all of us must face death at some point, in some form, our own or that of others close to us, the mind and soul will always be healed, and, when at last we meet Him, this body, this tent, is cast away and we are renewed. Pain and sorrow are gone. Joy is ours.




God is the one who calms the storms of this life, who brings solace and comfort in the midst of pain and sorrow, who forgives and restores and renews mind and soul. He is the One with Whom we have to do. Make your peace with Him today.

That’s my prayer ❤







With love, from AJ ❤
