New Day..

As Im sure you could of guessed
I have been going through
a time of trial in my life..
like Im sure a lot of you are doing as well..
With the economy what it is ,,
and Satan just going around
doing his best to be a BUTT!
But Im so over it.. I am tired of letting
him steal my JOY...
So no more..
God has taken good care of me and my
family and I refuse to ignore that and
walk around disappointed and upset.
So here is my new
View On Life.

Hi, Karen
I have been following your blog since you stopped by my blog, Spots and Wrinkles recently.

Did you happen to notice that your statement today, "So no more" - if you just move a space or two - it can also say, Son - o more!" We always have MORE with the Son in our lives, don't we. Have a good day.

I am dreaming big! And rejoicing in your story of a miracle working God that still does!

Delighted to meet you today! I jumped over from Getting Down with Jesus. Hope you don't mind if I splash around in your pond to get to know you.

All God's people said Amen. I am so proud of you for recognizing so quickly where this stickin' thinkin' comes from. I spent Years in that pit of despondency before I realized what you posted. Life is always going to bring trials and woes. Some come from Him for our good. Others come from him for ruin. We decide what we are going to do! We can be more than conquerors with Him as our great God. Love your blog.

Boy, that's the truth. This economy is cause for lots of doubt and discouragement. I appreciate your words of encouragement here in this post.

Hey sister! I will DEFINITELY be praying for you . . . but as I do, let me suggest a book! :) I'm not sure if you're doing a daily, weekly, monthly study etc. But this book could be used however you like. AND it's subject is a MUCH NEEDED message to ALL women!!! It's "Faith Dare" by Debbie Alsdorf. I reviewed it several weeks ago and I can tell you that if I were going to lead a Bible Study . . . this is the book I'd use. Its subject matter is so powerful! AND you'll love Debbie's writing style!

Anyway, check it out on

I'll continue praying for you and that even as your trials persist, God's power and strength will flourish in your weakness. It is through our sufferings that we come face to face with Him . . . and sister . . . HE IS AWESOME!
Love and BIG hugs!
