As 2008 fades into history...

Economies crashing…Terrorism raging…Planet warming…

Marriages failing…Chaos reigning…Values crumbling…

Fists clenching…Hearts aching…Hope fainting…



We live in a dreadful age.
My Bible tells me these are the last days.

The blessings that preserved me in this tough world are many. When I look back at 2008, my heart chokes with gratefulness to the Almighty. The hands that hold the universe together, held my cells together and my wits too. Mountains moved…Oceans parted…Loaves multiplied…Storms calmed. And in situations when heaven chose not to rain miracles down, He taught me to be still and know that He is God!

In the face of this difficult time, what gives me hope is not Obama and his call to change...
My hope is in the rugged Cross and its promise...
My trust is in the One who has proven to be faithful and unchanging...
His grace was sufficient in the days gone by, and will be sufficient to carry me through in the future!

His is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory forever.
