Hello Sweet Friends,

A quick note to let you all know I am fine. I have had a bit of a health issue and need to rest. Many of you have messaged and emailed…thank you so very very much for your concern and prayers. This little hiccup is just requiring more rest than I had planned!! 😉

My hope was to be back today. I have rested today and hope to be back filming tomorrow.

I have posted many pictures of the gardens and things we have been doing in the last couple of months. Please feel free to go take a peek. https://www.instagram.com/josephinesdesigns/  God is so good!! 🙂

God has a plan and I am so thankful for all who have been so kind and helpful during these days!! We are as I say many times in my videos…”La Familia”. And all of your kind words and encouragements again let me know how true that is for our little YouTube channel family.

Please be safe and take good care of yourselves.

Keep serving the Lord well….hugs and prayers,

k 🙂

Hi Dear  Friends,

It is Palm Sunday.

A day that is different than any other Palm Sunday in my life.

A day full of stress and irritation is how it started here.

A day that I can choose to give in or move on…even though those around me at times are frustrating beyond all words. And yes, I can too be that person.

Who do I trust? God and God alone.

He is perfect and He is the answer in a time of not many answers.

How do you feel this day?

Who do you have your hope in?

Who do you trust?

May I encourage you as I seek the Lord to encourage me…

Matthew 6:33 King James Version (KJV)

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Dr. Evans encouragement: Jeremiah 29:11

Jeremiah 29:11 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

11 For I know the plans that I [a]have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.

Let us focus on the Lord as his world right now has given us less than hope….my hope is in the Lord!!!

Hope according to Dr. Evans: expectation about the future….

Jesus is my hope and my hope alone. Let us keep seeking Him…focus on Him and trust Him in our futures…our hope.

Be safe Sweet Friends, keep serving Him well!!

Love, prayers and hugs,

Today’s Encouragement: Facing Uncertain Times with Dr. David Jeremiah: Is the Coronavirus in Bible Prophecy?

Hello Dear Friends,

This is a very interesting message. What do you think? Where do you think we are in history?

Are you ready? Do you know Jesus as Savior? If not, feel free to email me. Or simply, confess your sin and ask Jesus to be the Lord of your life.

John 3:16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His [a]only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

Proverbs 3:5-6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.

Lots to think on for sure!!

Love, prayers and hugs,

k

Encouragements: Even If/Mercy Me

Hey Sweet Friends,

This song literally got me through the death of my Daddy and then less than 5 months later the death of my Mom. I can remember barely able to sing with this song on the radio as we left their home for what was the last time when it was in tact.

No matter what….our God is good…then and now. We all struggle….just remember even if….God can deliver us!! Such a great song and testimony.

Be safe, be healthy, be encouraged and keep trusting the Lord…He loves you so very very much!!

Love, hugs and prayers…k 🙂

Hello Dear Friends,

Please keep your faith!!!

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for uswho is against us?
If our God is with (for) us, who can be against us. Romans 8:31

Please let us join our hearts together in prayer for our fellow men, women and children!

Let us pray for all leadership on every level…world, country, state, county/providence and city/town.

Let us pray for all on the front lines…Drs, nurses, specialists, research scientists, manufactures of equipment, all service people: military, police, ambulance, fire, etc.

We serve a Mighty Savior.

Please Lord heal our people!!! Our hope is in You and You alone!!!

When sheltered in….we can pray Dear Friends!!

Let us lift our voices in prayer to a mighty God!!!!

Be safe, shelter in and keep serving Jesus well…He loves you so well!!!

Love, hugs and prayers,

Hey Dear Friends,

Alistair Begg Has been such an encouragement…well I can’t even remember how many years. We even took our son to the University he is apart when driving through CA many years ago. At that time our son was looking at many seminaries while trying to understand God’s will for his life.

I hope you are encouraged…and he is also making reference to a hymn….and well, many of you know how much I enjoy hymns.

I pray you are safe, healthy and I encourage you to keep serving the Lord well…He loves you so very very much!!

Love, prayers and hugs,
