Ready or not . . .

Last night, as I finished setting up this blog, contemplating what to write in my first post, I received word that the father of my grown son's friend had just died, leaving a wife, a son in college and two daughters still in high school. The topic of my post was decided.
While I struggle to trust God more each day, and HOPE that when the next catastrophy hits I'll be "fully entrusted," this new widow is thrust into a huge, dark, unknown-- ready or not.
Lord, please strengthen her and her children, comfort them, protect and provide for them. And help the thought remain in the forefront of my mind this year and beyond:
                                  TRUST is not a luxury. It is a necessity.


  1. Hi Vicki! I just started a blog myself...

    Mine is related to my FB Simple Fare page...basically the same content but I have more freedom on a blog than on FB. Eventually I will move everything over to the blog...and hope the "fans" will follow.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend who lost her husband. So tragic.

    I'll enjoy coming back to your blog and catching up with the happenings of your life!

  2. Hi Vicki, finally got on to your blog. I am looking forward to reading it and your thoughts. I know you will have wisdom to share with your followers.

  3. Hey Vicki! Thanks for inviting us to join you on your journey. Phil 4:13 constantly reminds me of what you are writing about. I hope you can realize your resolutions. Well, I'm not so sure about the fiber thing....

  4. Yes, Corinnea, I made the mistake of letting my husband see the fiber goal: "WHAT?!"
    He never would have know otherwise. He'll thank me later.
