Our God Reigns — All the Time!

scott_delores_2016In this wonderful Easter season, I am so grateful to Jesus for eternal life and for power in him to meet life’s challenges. Scott and I continue to be pressed rather hard on several fronts.

The ongoing love and support of friends and family has lightened our load and strengthened our hearts. Thank you for being the heart and hands of Jesus to us in many ways.

Jesus is all we need…but so often his love and care is provided by his children for one another.

On March 11 we received a defining call from Scott’s brother. He had concluded that it was time to transition Sue to an assisted living facility. Since last June she has been on hospice and has had full time in-home care givers. In light of this development, Scott and I traveled to Oklahoma to help with the transition. Thursday morning, March 17, the brothers informed Sue of the change and moved her in that afternoon. She received the news gracefully and for this we are most grateful.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday we had the task of going through everything in her home to prepare for an estate sale. This was really difficult emotionally.

We arrived back in Baton Rouge the evening of March 23 completely exhausted. In all of this we have found God to be our very present help in this time of trouble.

Jesus is the Answer — No Matter the Circumstances

“I am the way, the truth, and the life.” “Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace that passes understanding shall keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Two wonderful verses I memorized long ago that have served me well. He is enough!


 

This is Delores, for both of us
