Selah! Pause, Praise.....and Rest a While
And, it's time for us to "pause". It's time for us to rest. While listening to this message, I wrote a little "love note" to my daughter. It said, "It's time to rest!" Staci Wallace is a woman who has a "no quit" attitude. From sun-up to sun-down, she is all about not only doing the most and best she can for her family, but is relentless in helping other families as well. I'm so thrilled those words from her Mama went straight to her heart. I was bringing Lexi home with me anyway, but I loved it when she said, "I'm coming too! I want to see my Granny!" Yay!
Psalm 46:7 "The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah." Indeed. He is our Selah Philosophy AND our LIFE Philosophy -- we find our soul's rest and comfort in Him.

It was just "puppy love" that brought my Honey and I together at the ages of 13 and 12. We eventually married at the "mature" ages of 18 and 17. And that's when our faith journey began. Over the years, we encountered many opportunities to stretch our faith, especially when our babies were very sick, when financial situations were out of control, and when our marriage relationship had some rocky periods.But we made it through those times by our strong faith and trust in God. But never was our faith more challenged, than when my 63 years "young" husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. Fortunately, the 44 years of marriage and faith-building experiences, caused us to "weather the storm", and still remain in peace and strong in our faith. This "peace that passed understanding" compelled me to blog and share the principles that caused our faith to be unwavering and continues to give me the joys of living large! I'm still here, so I'm not done!. I pray you will grow in your faith as you, not only read the blogs, but apply the principles to your own life -- for the good times, and especially for those times that seem so overwhelming.
