Joanie's Jewels

Insights from Joanie

God wants us to know, love and trust Him.  He gives us jewels of strength and hope even in our darkest times.  He is always with us in the good and the bad times.

‘I will go before you
 and make the crooked places straight; 
I will break in pieces the gates of bronze 
and cut the bars of iron.  I will give you the treasures of darkness
 and hidden riches of secret places, 
that you may know that I, the Lord, 
who call you by your name, 
am the God of Israel.”    (Isaiah 45:2-3)

 God has given us the incredible privilege to KNOW, to LOVE and to TRUST Him!  So that we will know Him, He reveals Himself every day, not only in the beauty of the sunrise and the sunset, but also in the little things of life. 

 He also reveals Himself through His Word – the Bible – consisting of the old and the New Testament.  And He reveals Himself through the miracle that is Israel and the Jewish people

 He promises that if we will diligently seek Him, He will be found!

 I have learned that He is faithful.  When I haven’t been able to hear His voice and am uncertain, unsure of what step to take next, I trust in His character and promises. 

 May you see God’s glory through these little jewels that come from my life’s experiences, sometimes in the sunlight and sometimes in the dark.

Rooted and Grounded

The unhindered view from the 6tth floor apartment is spectacular especially at sunset; but it does have a challenge -there is no protection from sun or from wind. Over the past few years I’ve had to experiment to discover what plants will grow well in such...

Squeeze My Hand

SQUEEZE MY HAND Boffin was probably the most important thing in my life.  He was my companion, as well as my comforter.  True he had four legs instead of two, but he understood me.  We could communicate without words.  He taught me commitment superceeded convenience. ...
