We Went -- We Saw -- We Loved
Sure enough, that sweet couple's prayers and dreams came to pass, along with many other children. The daddy was videotaping the experience, crying like a baby. I've read in many articles how Pope Francis most resembles Jesus in his servitude and His common practice of being among the people. I could just imagine that's the way Jesus walked about this earth -- healing, consoling, giving love and tenderness to those who needed it most.
My final note on this day is to share with you that my faith, hope and trust in God is dependent on one main thing.....Jesus is Lord and the Son of Almighty God and it is in Him alone Who paid the ultimate price for our salvation and eternal life with Him forever. But, along the way, I'm so grateful that God brought so many Godly representatives to teach and show us the way to go. Thank God for Pope Francis. Thank God for the apostles, the Godly men and women who gave their lives for the sake of Christ, the brothers and sisters who sacrifice comfort and are bearers of the Good News of Christ to this world, priests, religious, pastors and teachers who proclaim God's love.....and to you and me who love to tell the story of His AMAZING GRACE!!!
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.
