  2. Wonderful and needed reminder, Julie! I am tucking this deep in my heart to reexamine in light of all I have mentioned experiencing lately. I admit an oasis has been an incredibly tough thing to find at times for us. Between running a small business, raising four kids ( two autistic), and physical struggles, it’s a longing that cries out for fulfillment but too often finds the field rather crowded! Prayerfully, we are working on making room. I know it would be a good thing for us. Thanks again
    for very helpful words. Blessings on you and yours. ❤

    1. Oh dear sister, I hear your heart crying out for this time. I pray God removes any barriers that are movable. I pray God brings you and your hushand a trusted caregiver/babysitter. I pray God gives you a refreshing marital moment each day as often as He sees fit. Headed to the psalms before I sleep. I will lift what I typed up to heaven again. Love in Christ, Julie

    1. Thank you so much for that blessing of peace. I need to be on my knees to receive it. My husband needs to resist the devil to receive it. The battle ensues, but we are victorious because of Christ. Love and hugs right back to you, sister.

  4. That day trip I mentioned to you last week was a huge blessing for my husband and me. I may write about it to post. I took over a hundred pictures. It was so beautiful – the day, the scenery, the company, the bonding.

    As I read the first part of your post, I thought of a hymn we sang this morning in church, All the Way My Savior Leads Me:
    All the way my Savior leads me
    What have I to ask beside?
    Can I doubt His faithful mercies?
    Who through life has been my guide
    Heavenly peace, divinest comfort
    Ere by faith in Him to dwell
    For I know whate’er fall me
    Jesus doeth all things well

    All of the way my Savior leads me
    And He cheers each winding path I tread
    Gives me strength for every trial
    And He feeds me with the living bread
    And though my weary steps may falter
    And my soul a-thirst may be
    Gushing from a rock before me
    Though a spirit joy I see

    And all the way my Savior leads me
    Oh, the fullness of His love
    Perfect rest in me is promised
    In my Father’s house above
    When my spirit clothed immortal
    Wings it’s flight through the realms of the day
    This my song through endless ages
    Jesus led me all the way

    1. Good morning, Kathy. I look forward to your post and pics. Thank you for this song. The struggle for police families has increased immensely in the last two weeks. It is in Christ I stand. It is His power in me that will sustain me. If you would add my husband to your prayers, I would appreciate it, for physical and spiritual protection.

    1. Good morning, Julie. Thank you for joining me here. It is a comfort to know someone else is aware of our struggle against evil. Have a beautiful day, as God ushers us into a new week. Love in Christ, Julie

  5. Wonderful post Ms. Julie. I can’t imagine the stressors and pressures that your Mr. Jason must feel as a peace officer, especially in light of the chaos in this world today. In addition to praying for his safety (and for others), I will be praying for his sense of inner peace and tranquility also. I loved how you sensed your spouse’s need for connection with family and sought ways to meet that. Our spouses truly are a lifeline that help to keep the world at bay. I’m so grateful you two have grown closer and are there for one another. God’s blessings little family.

    1. oh brother! Thank you forever for your prayers. The spiritual battle is deadly. Thank you too for sending blessings from Texas our way. Our little family will be going away for a bit. So thankful we had vacation planned before Covid and riots hit. May God bless your marriage in abundance today, J.D.

  6. Love your words, Julie! Much needed by all couples in these trying times. On Sunday my husband and I took a drive, walked around the sculpture garden, and shared a frozen coke. Getting away together even for a short while does wonders for the spirit. Thank you for your heartfelt writings for God and others!

    1. Oh Jamie so thankful the two of you got time to focus on each other. Sharing a coke! That is adorable 🙂 and I want to thank Jesus for this post. I am telling you the devil was in our home, but Jesus is king. Praying through and standing on His truth. I am so very thankful we had vacation planned before Covid and before riots. Our family of four will disappear north for about 4 nights. May Our God bless you and keep you, sister.

  7. What a beautiful message for all of us sister💚 I am praying protection over your house~I can’t imagine the stress, worry, and fear that Satan will try to utilize. And he has NO victory! I was sharing with a friend yesterday that you couldn’t pay me enough to be a police officer. My heart and prayers are with him and the families of all serving. Isn’t our Father so glorious to allow times in nature? Of singing with our loved one? Of getting time away? And you are such an amazing support for your amazing spouse. God blesses your unity and is using you both to enrich and bless our lives. I will share this with my partner, Jeff. God, continue to protect this precious family. 💚 thank you for the scriptures and sharing of your soul and heart. 💕🤗

    1. God thank you for Karla and for giving her Jeff. Thank you for how you join all of us in Your Spirit, the Spirit of power and of love and of sound mind. Thank you dear sister for being here with me and standing in the gap. I encourage all my family (myself included) to take one day at a time. What a gift not to have to worry about the future. Love in Christ, Julie
