  1. Amen. Thank you for joining hands with me across the miles to lift our arms in prayer to Him. I am so in awe of the way that God keeps expanding that view of community in my eyes. Blessings to you on Valentine’s Day also. xo

    1. Yay! Bettie, love that we have joined hands. All in spite of that nasty pandemic. I am closing my computer soon and will look up Scripture to pray for Barry. If you have any you are standing upon, please message me : Love and hugs from a now muddy PA, Julie

  2. While we cannot reach the whole world, as Jesus did, we can be accountable for our part in it: we are part of His body, and God has purposes for each of us. He gave us the parable of the Good Samaritan for a reason. May we learn.

    1. Thank you Kathy. Yes, Jesus gave us so much. WE have what we need to be His body in community this given day. We don’t need to delay. I am thankful I visited a local church that was open for corporate worship today. I was tearful and prayed and was surrounded by saints praying and praising. How wonderful is our God!

  3. Julie, my husband and I talked about this very thing today! I am lonely for community. I am so grateful you were brave enough to bring this up! 78% of people poled in 2020 did not share Jesus with one person the entire year. It’s a tough year for all of us. You are a light!

    1. Oh K.C. I am so thankful God connected us when He did. Though we have never met, we pray for each other. Though, we don’t know each other well, we can rejoice when the other rejoices and carry the burdens the other has. Rocko and I prayed for you this morning.

  4. I would like to see more small group scripture study meeting in each other’s homes. But I know that it is so hard for people to have time with such busy lives. Time seems to be pushing us to do more work. Relationships with other followers and with the Savior get put on hold. I am searching for ways the Lord can use my zeal for the scriptures, to stir the souls of others. You are an encouragement to others, and the love of Christ shines through you. Blessings to you Julie!
