  1. Mary,

    If we think what God calls us to do is hard, then just visualize what Jesus had to do. He cried to the point of death so as not to go to the cross. Yet that was His father’s will. If Jesus can endure all the pain, denial & agony of the cross for you-certainly you can follow Him & do what ever He asks. He promises to never leave nor forsake us. I had seasons of caring for elderly parents & their dementia. It was hard but God saw me through it to the end. In the midst of it though my dad got baptized. There can be good to come from trials. Now I have a season of rest. Learning to rest in Him & have joy in my life again.

    Blessings 🙂

  2. I have a new neighbor from another country, another culture, and another religion. We have little in common and she is gone from early in the morning to late at night. Can you give me ways to love this neighbor? I need some guidance and ideas, or do I just wait until the warmer weather and figure out a conversation starter?
