God works in mysterious ways!


"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives." ~ Annie Dillard

So what exactly have I been up to lately? A whole lot of things I can't talk about completely. But I will say this...I've been helping a lot of people. And it feels great!!! Some of the things I am involved in I can't talk about because they are of a confidential nature. Many of you reading this know exactly what I'm talking about and your life's work is the same. I would never want to disclose something inappropriate about anyone or Lord forbid embarrass them in any way. So, my desire to talk about it isn't related to that, but oh how I would love for people to know exactly what God has done in some people's lives!!! I have to revel in the quiet inner satisfaction I feel in knowing what has taken place.

Today was filled with life-changing things for me and for others. This is a good thing...I want to spend my life helping others in a variety of ways. God is helping me to learn how to do that even more. I am so thankful. We serve an amazing God!!!

Deanna, I like the new look of your page. I did not know you were from Baltimore ... my oldest son is doing an internship at a church in silver springs, md. He absolutely loves the area! Glad to hear of the good things God is stirring up in your neck of the woods! -blessings, Laurie

Thanks Laurie!

Yes, I am from Baltimore -- from the Sparrows Point/Edgemere Jones Creek area to be exact. The funny thing was this man knows all about Jones Creek and although I have met many people from Baltimore in my lifetime, somebody who knows about Jones Creek is rarer so to meet this man was a real treat.

I am familiar with the churches in Silver Spring! I most assuredly would know his church and have probably been there although not sure about the pastor because there have been changes in those pastorates since I have been there. That's awesome!
