Encouragement for Today~In today's world of swirling circumstances, we need to be reminded of how much we are loved by God.

And Still……



I will be 57 years old in a couple of months. There have been a lot of changes in this body. Some body parts just don’t move like they use to. And this body is little heavier than it once was in spite of my best efforts.

My eyes seem to worsen each time I go to the eye doctor. I quit wearing contacts when I figured out the glasses actually hid the dark circles under my eyes better than any concealer I had ever used.


But I am ok with it all. I don’t mind getting older. I figure I have earned every wrinkle, scar and blemish and I am proud of it. And besides…….. I am being renewed each day!

This body housed and brought two children into the world, provided me with the ability to be in an upright position moving and experiencing life…. and it does it still…..

These hands have held the sweetest of babies, given countless baths, washed clothes and dishes….and allow me to use them still……

These eyes read bed time stories many times over, waited for teens to walk in the door before curfew, cried many tears….. and provide sight for me still…….

This voice has sang lullabies to little boys, taught lessons and yelled…and allows me to be an encouragement with it still…..

These arms have carried babies, bags, groceries in the door, lost in arm wrestling matches, folded over others while embracing loved ones…..and fold over still…….

These legs have held upright when my strength seemed gone, walked me down the aisle when my sons were married….. and carries me still…….

This spirit within my heart has given me an identity that no one can take away…..and it is with me still…..

I am confident because of who Christ is in me. My confidence does not come from me…..but from He who lives within me

And when all these physical things are no longer….He will be with me….still.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~
