     That's what we can count on, forever and ever.  Touching and praying and encouraging is all we can do in our lifetime.  And heading to Heaven is a wonderful spiritual understanding piece!  It is Christmas time, and filled with wonderfulness, moment-by-moment -- either in, the last 31 years, Omaha usually, or at a Christmas stretch-of-days at Minnesota several times for my "sister"/ friend, Susan in the Clearbrook area and to the Twin Cities at Dave's family.  Also,  were in Uganda three Christmas times ['94, '95, 2003].  It's all a blessing. 
      BUT, anywhere, and here or there, serving the Lord is all that counts!  He's had me reading, recently, all the Prophets, a bit of Psalms, Revelation, and, now, John -- will finish that on Saturday.  Thinking of our Heavenly Father and Jesus when everything I'm reading.  On my heart momentarily, even today.

AND, BTW, this photo was taken when we were praying for a family mom or aunt of the teenage boy who had been murdered.  Just happened to work out that I was the official pray-er that day when the prayer shawl was placed.  That was about three years ago. It was a very cold time, but no snow right then, so driving to that part of town... way southeast... was possible.  Many were prayed over by several who were blessing them!!  OH, and I don't know when and/or how I can be at First Responders at the murder sites ... which I've done for 7-1/2 years, unless I'm out of town to the NW or Minnesota area usually ... and I can't drive any more.  It's been at a hospital here when I was being tested about 10 days ago, immediately said I could not drive a car.  I've been crying a LOT since then, but worshiping and praying and glorifying the Lord.  All that counts is HIM, forever and ever!!  Now I'll shut up!!

Your ministry has extended to many over the years and you have prayed over those who have lost a loved one to murder. Tears were shed and Jesus understood all the sorrow as he wept too. Thank you for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story.

What a blessing to be able to talk to our Father. So under valued to most of us, but not to you!

I remember that picture and time.

It is such a privilege to pray for people who are going through hard times. Happy New Year, Joanne. May it be the best one yet!
