These Things I Know

I turned 40 this past March, and so I guess it's a "normal" time to reflect on one's life so far. Well, these things I know.......
I have had a blessed life since day one. In looking back over the years, I see that God's prescence has ALWAYS been in my life.....even before I really knew it. The people placed into my life as family, friends, coworkers..."FELLOW BLOG READERS, THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES IN LIFE...THAT'S THE LORD'S HAND MOVING IN YOUR LIFE. okay, sorry back to the entry. Yesterday at church our pastor addressed all of the MY SPACERS and FACEBOOKERs. I am a blogger so I took it to heart. Anyway, he challenged us to use our blogs for good (no gossip etc) and to present ourselves as the Christians we are. Use our site for good. So many of my fellow bloggers are Christians, and amen girls, you rock at this!!! Why is it sooo easy to talk about movies we've seen and everything else, but we (I) clam up when it comes to what REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE........JESUS, AND HAVING A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. This thing I know.....we are here to learn how to love Him. We are here to learn how to love others, like He loves us. Life can be soooooo hard at times, NO ONE IS IMMUNE TO IT, and just because you are a Christian doesn't mean life won't be hard. It just means He will be there to carry you through the dark times, over the mountain.
One thing I DON'T KNOW: how do you make it through the hard times in life WITHOUT HIM?!
