Patricia choose the following quote for us to write about:
I've been going through a long season of challenges. These are challenges I'd prefer not to have to deal with. And right now, they seem to be unending. Some friends don't know what to say so they avoid you. Others feel they have to give just the right advice and when they leave I feel worse.
Sassy Granny . We've had the pleasure of meeting in person and spending time together on a number of occasions. That is until she moved back to the Seattle area. However, she's just a phone call away and I find it so easy to talk to her. She's a good listener and will give me feedback but doesn't take over and tell me what to do.
I noticed that everytime I called Kathleen or we spent time together discussing things, she always ended our time together in prayer. She didn't have all the answers but she knew where to point me to; Jesus.
In fact, I sent her an email thanking her for doing that. And here was her response:
There were so many days when I was a younger believer that He was my last thought (when all else failed). Life brought me many trials, enough so that I had to lean on Him first lest I die of heartbreak. I forget sometimes ... then I remember again. He is faithful, and I am so honored to honor Him.It's a lesson for me to learn. Run to the One who has all the answers. He knows what I need better than me.
Blessings and love,
