The prompt for this week is TOMORROW. In a world that has been turned upside-down, I find hope in tomorrow. I also find an uneasiness, because we don't know what tomorrow will bring. Every day brings change, more bad news. However, I know the answer, I know who holds tomorrow! JESUS!!

That is who I am focusing on. Jesus is Life, . . .

Welcome to a journal entry from a recent Special Edition 10-day challenge that Kate Motaung ran from March 2-12, 2020. The goal was not to post on our blog or social media, but just to simply write for 10 days. Kate then encouraged us to share our favorite one.

Direction

A Five Minute Friday Challenge

A large portion of my job involves giving directions to people so they can find the clinic they need to be in. I've noticed that some people walk straight past the desk, with no eye contact and keep going on their way. I assume they have been here before and know where they are going.

New Year Ponderings

Plus My One Word for 2020

 

Silvrback blog image

It's hard to believe that 2019 is over and we are almost a whole week into 2020 already. I enjoy seeing and reading the end of year reviews. There have also been the end of the decade reflections and discussions if it truly is the end of the decade. (I'm fine either way.) 

Near the end of December, I tend to get . . .
