How is your writing going?

I usually feel uncomfortable answering that question. However, I’ve discovered the answer is often linked to an even more intimidating question. How is your quiet time going?

Thankfully, I have people in my life who care enough to ask me that question. I must admit, there have been seasons when my quiet time wasn’t going well at all. There have even been periods of time when I yielded to the temptation to skip my time with the Lord all together.

    Happy Friday to you, Tahlitha.

  3. God bless you, Uponmyheart. I need(ed) it as well. Have a lovely weekend.

  4. Happy Friday to you too, Cara! We can’t beat the Father’s heart for us. Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Thank you for thinking of us and giving us something we all need to hear! God bless you abundantly and Happy Mother’s day too!

  6. Thank you Debbie, all the more to you.

Share your voice...it's a blessing!
