Kerry,

As usual, your honesty and humility jump off the page in your words. Thank you for making yourself so vunerable in order to speak to those of us out here whom you'll probably never meet in person, but whom you think enough of to share the Lord's lessons in your life.

I appreciate you, Kerry, and may the Lord bless your family in all ways, always.

Love from NC.

Can I just say that I am so thankful for you Kerry?! I read your posts, and I often cry and laugh and am inspired and convicted all at the same time. It is an honor to be your sister in Christ (although we may never meet on earth). Your heart for obedience to our Saviour, your passion for service and generosity to others, your candid and honest stories are moving beyond words. I find it amazing that the trials and lessons and experiences you share just seem to be right in line with an area in which I myself am struggling or working -- like God has just sent another message through your blog! Thank you for sharing scripture and stories and for making a difference in the lives of so many people!
May you and your family be richly blessed during this Christmas season and always,
Renee

To Renee and Love from NC,

Thanks for the encouragement. I was reading other blogs today and in doing so found myself regretting my being so vulnerable about my struggles on mine, not to mention so lengthy in my writings. So, thanks for encouraging me to keep sharing. Also, you both said things about us never meeting. Well, as I was sitting here watching Christmas specials on TV with my kids tonight, I found myself asking the Lord to allow me to meet sisters like you both. God recently showed me that He loves setting up such divine meetings in a most serendipitous way. A few weeks ago I heard about a homeschool mom in the new town I moved to. Very few people home school here. But was hesitant to call this woman, because I didn't want to be striving...So I prayed that I would meet her when the Lord found it to be best. Here's how it happened: My family took me out for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. And while we were out, my sister-in-law said, "by the way that's that couple [who homeschools their kids.]" I walked over and introduced myself. I told her that I had wanted to meet her. She said that she had heard of me and hoped to meet me as well. I explained that I was out for my birthday and she said, "yes, me too." As s it turns out we were born on the exact same day..Nov 19, 1971. That's so God. Over these last couple of weeks, we have had wonderful fellowship together. She is a woman who loves living in the light as well. So, all that to say, "I hope to meet you both, as the Lord might see fit. There is nothing like fellowshiping with those who love the Light. Thanks again. Kerry Hasenbalg

As I read your blog for today, a song keeps going through my head...."In everything give Him thanks...in the good times, praise His Name....in the bad times, keep on doing the same....in everything, give the King of Kings all the thanks.............

Kerry,

So often you write about what I am experiencing and your words are comforting. Choosing to believe and trust in the midst of difficult circumstances is what I too am facing.

Your son reminds me of my child that will list all the negatives of the day even if it was a really great day. Thanks for your idea about having her list some positive things before talking about the negatives.
