Busy, Busy Life

Life has been moving fast and forward for the Wood family.

  • In July, Dave and I were gifted with our first great-grandchild, by our first-born grandchild.
  • Dave got a great report from his doctor; his PSA levels were super low, indicating that the cancer is still gone. To God be the glory!!
  • Our church is back in full swing now, and I’m back to teaching a weekly adult class (I love it!).
  • Our women’s ministry is planning for a fall women’s retreat (y’all come!); I am preparing my thoughts, as I will be one of the speakers at the event.
  • I’m trying to work on my book–some parts of the story are harder to write than others. The goal is to tell the story truthfully, and with balance. Pray for me. Honesty, for sure; God’s presence, always; bitterness, no.
  • Projects around the house; getting accomplished slowly. We retired folks don’t rush much these days.
  • Lots of crafting/sewing projects in process. Christmas is coming,¬† you know. And this is so much more fun than the house projects, so . . .
  • I am now the proud owner of hearing aids, mostly to address the hearing challenges that come from really loud tinnitus. They are helping a bit, but nothing totally gets rid of the ringing. *sigh*
  • I will soon be having cataract surgery on BOTH eyes. (Heavens! When did I get so old?)

Other stuff added to the mix makes for a full life. How about  you? How is God filling your life these days?

Bible verse for the day: “So then, while we have opportunity, let’s do good to all people, especially to those who are of the household of the faith.” -Galatians 6:10

Let’s do good to all people. Have a good day, folks!

Five Action Steps for Beating Addiction

Our friend, Jim Watson, wrote an excellent book that addresses addiction and proven methods to transform your life through the power of Christ. He speaks from his personal experience with addiction and the many years it took to develop this program and his work with addicts of every type.

Having had loved ones who suffered with various types of addiction, I can only say that I wish I had this many years ago when dealing with it and being able to offer this type of wisdom to help them fight their battles. I encourage you to purchase this book. It will not only help you to help the ones you love, but you may even see yourself in some of the pages to help you overcome other types of bondage. Seriously, I am on my third reading. You’ll be glad you made the investment.

Simply click on the picture of the book cover, and it will take you to Amazon to make your purchase. Thanks!

Off-Roading With God-The Story Begins

Hey, y’all, I’ve begun a new page on my website, in which I intend to share the story of my life. It chronicles the “adventures” I have experienced and ultimately tells about the God who knew and loved me before I was born.

Many times we are led to believe that being a Christian–that being known by God–means we will never experience difficulties in our lives. One could only wish that were true. But the real truth is that Jesus told us we’d have difficulties, some of which would be very bad. He also told us that He would never leave us. That’s the real truth. It’s why I can tell my story. Because through all the bad that happened, God was always there. I might not have known that at the time, but I came to understand the truth of it as I learned more about Him. It’s not an easy story to tell, but if my story helps even one individual relate, if it helps even one individual know they are not alone and that God is there and knows and cares and …

Anyway, go here, and let the story begin!
