Hi Girlfriends,

Long time no see! It’s been a quite a while since I’ve posted anything new here on the blog and I’ve missed you.  Let me explain…

I hope you’ve had a good start to the new year and all is well with you and those you love. xoxo

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us Laura. I never thought about the difference between knowing God and believing in him until recently., that’s really good stuff. Huge difference.
    That was so sad to hear people mention everything about there loved ones except their faith in God.
    I like how real and authentic you are when you share a inspiration with us.
    PS. I’m praying for you and your dad. 💜

        My mom just went into hospice (Kline house). Thank you for mentioning that. Lisa

          Lisa – Frederick hospice is also caring for my dad, but they come to him. I am so sorry to hear about your mom and I know how you must be feeling. This is so hard, but God is 100% faithful. I just prayed for you and will continue. Please let me know how you are doing. We are walking very similar paths. xo

    Oh Laura,
    Your message is what I needed to hear. I have been still and awaiting for God to reveal if I should take a step towards Hospice. Recently I have been with a love one who was dying. I was their medical advocate. This is the fifth death that I was close with during their dying days. I saw a big difference to those who loved and knew the Lord and those who believed but did not know him. Those who knew him were ready to go home but those who did not have a personal relationship with him were fearful. I felt God placed me there in their life’s to witness to them and bring them to a closer relationship on their death bed. I have attended those Hospice memorials and your right it’s
    sad to see the lack of knowing God. I’m praying for your dad, you and your family during this difficult time🙏

      I don’t know why I always hesitate to write/make a video about death/dying/suffering. God ALWAYS connects the subject with people who need to hear it. Why oh why do I forget that? 🙂 I am grateful that He is so faithful and used this to help you in your current situation. Thanks Dawn for sharing. I just prayed for you. You are on a sacred walk and He is giving you opportunities to speak truth into fear.

    Laura, its wonderful to hear from you again. I have missed you. I have felt the same way, about the relationship with Jesus, expecially with our loved ones who have passed. My brother and I talked about the Lord, during his bout with cancer. Up unto that point, I wasnt even sure he believed in God. After his death, I shared with my family about our conversation. I believe it was a comfort to our family to know he believed and we would one day be reunited. Be blessed! I will be praying for you and your father as his life is transitioning from this life to the next.

      I’ve witnessed God chasing down loved ones who were at the end of their lives and really never knew Him before. It was amazing and a remind that He wants all of us with Him in eternity. He never gives up. He does not want any of His children separated from Him. We simply need to remember to be obedient and open our mouths with grace, respect and kindness – sharing the truth of who He is. Thank you for the prayers, Kathy. xoxo

    Thank you SO much, Laura, for this word from the Lord. I suffered the loss of both my sisters this past year and am now going through difficulties of a different sort. Needed to be reminded of what it truly means to say, “Be still. . .and know that I am God.” Will pray for you, also, as you walk this journey with your dad.

    • LauraAdmin on January 21, 2019 at 9:36 pm

      Jermaine – I am so very sorry to hear you’ve lost both sisters. I know you must be heartbroken. It is too much for you, but thankfully, not too much for God. I’m also sorry that you are going through a tough time right now. I’ve just prayed for you. Thanks for the prayers for us too. xoxo

    Thank you for sharing what God put on your heart. I love what Liz said about Be still & know that I am God, surrender ,give it up.Thank you for this blessing today & truth of really knowing our God.I think believing can be easy sometimes but knowing takes all of our heart & all of our mind & all of our soul. Praying for you as you walk your dad to our heavenly father. ❤
