  1. These scriptures have blessed me so much Lilka, thank you. A lot going on here, my daughter is struggling and I am going to be signing off from blogging in a day or two, so wanted to wish you and your family a wonderful summer and I’ll catch up with you when I’m up and running again. God bless you my friend, joy, peace and love to you 🙂 ❤


    1. Sherri,

      I hate that you are signing off for a while but I certainly understand. Our kids need us and we need to be available for them!

      I wish you peace and many blessings. Keep Matthew 12:28 close to you. 🙂 Much love to you and your kids!

      “Do not grow weary…” B Blessed!
