I once told myself that I wouldn’t be posting “nonsense” posts on my blog. That all posts would have a purpose.CcMGoWaUMAAEAdG I think I’ve been pretty good with keeping that…
However, my last post was a while back and I think I owe it to those who follow this blog, to let you know that I’m still here.


We had an absolutely amazing trip to Australia and I can’t wait to post some photos! 


After the summer, we got busy as life generally does and then we began the journey of homeschooling… The first 2 weeks I was all over the place and the following weeks has been full of adjustments. I’ll get back to that in a different post.

When I finally reached the point where I felt more relaxed in our new situation, I managed to trip and strained my neck – possibly had a mild whiplash – but thankfully, it feels like it has subsided again and I’m back to normal.



“No stress” is top priority and in case you’d like to know:
I’m still not afraid!! Please see previous post for more info on that… 


reject jesusI do have concerns about my daughter as she continues to avoid social things, continues the cutting and is refusing treatment – while still refusing Jesus. At the same time, she is more relaxed with the homeschooling situation, so things do look brighter and we don’t have the same stress we did before.


Thanks for reading. I just wanted to keep you up to date and I do so hope I will be able to post another more purposeful post in the very near future.

Praise the Lord of us all!

  1. I am sorry to hear your daughter is cutting.. it seems to be an epidemic now among teens..
    Many refute the spiritual aspect and claim it is strictly a mental issue.. to relieve inner pain..
    This has been a pagan practice for centuries.. In Africa the high priest would cut himself to allow the “spirit” to enter.. it varies from culture to culture.. and Jesus set free the Gadarene, who was cutting himself with stones.. If you believe in spiritual warfare.. please research if there is a possibility this could be spiritual vs. mental.. and bind the works of the enemy..
    sorry to ramble.. 🙂 God Bless


    1. While I know for sure it is a mental issue to relieve inner pain, it is 100% sparked by demonic activity. People are praying and standing in the gap, but if the girl will not accept Jesus then she’s a sitting duck for more demonic activity. I have bound the enemy and told them to take off, I call on the angel armies and the Lord IS faithful, but at the end of the day, it depends on her. Being just 10 years old, that’s a hard call. She’s getting better though and more openly confesses to me when she is cutting, but it’s a long road. God Bless and thanks for your comment.

  2. Thanks. You have an open heart for Jesus type of writing style which is so refreshing. As an ol’ Papa, I understand the concern for each child and now grandchildren. We would do well to hold each other in prayer for this task. Perhaps that is what caught my attention. My theme is ‘how to’ overcome darkness and adversity through a step of faith in Jesus Christ. I mean to share a bit of hope with you.
    One of my very dear friends in the Lord recently led a middle-aged man to Christ. That young man had followed the way of darkness with alcohol abuse and cutting of darkness. That man was the son of our good friends in church and they prayed for years for his Salvation. It was a God moment as the two headed into the woods in northern Wisconsin for firewood.
    God had a different fire in mind. The fire of His Spirit met those men in the woods. As my friend shared his testimony of faith, about how he too, had followed the way of darkness, had found Christ, knew the difference, and now lived for Jesus, the lost one found Christ.
    I share this with you on the basis of hope that we have in Jesus. A three-part testimony packet is available for you to get for free, in which three similar testimonies are shared, along with a plan of Salvation. You only need to ask.

    1. Thank you so much. I appreciate your prayers and comment. I’m not sure what the future will bring for my daughter but I know that Jesus hasn’t left her side. Even with many prayers, in the end it must be her own decision whether she wants to return to Jesus or not. In the meantime, I and others are standing the gap… many blessings to you and thank you for stopping by.

  3. Welcome back! So glad your trip was grand and your post is way more purposeful than you think – to me at least, as I have been absent from my blog for a long while too. It is almost a relief to know that I am not the only one and so appreciate your fearlessness and praise. Thank you and God’s blessings.
