Asking for your continued prayers. I have a dr. appointment this Wed. In addition to the panic attacks/anxiety disorder, I suffer from white coat syndrome. (I get nervous when I have to take my kids to the dr., too.)

Please pray for me, friends. I want to be on the road to better things. This prison of worry, fear, and anxiety has held me captive for far too long.

God bless...

Dear blog friends,
Please pray for me today.
The roller coaster has been in full swing for several days.
I long to be delivered from this prison of fear and worry.

Thanks so much...

Heroes of the Faith

Our society calls people heroes for many reasons. Today, I'd like you to meet some heroes who are very close to my heart: Tricia and Emily. Tricia is my husband's cousin.

Rather than retell their story, please go to the link below. The blog is authored by another of my husband's cousins, Dawn. You will be amazed at God's sustaining power...

Ahh, Fall!

My husband and I have a favorite fall tradition: the fall drive. When we lived in the suburbs of Detroit, we would drive through Hines Park. When we moved to the Upper Peninsula, our drive of choice was along Lake Superior, ending at Tahquamenon Falls. If you've never been there--go! The drive along the lakeshore is incredible. I have pictures I could scan and post, but they don't really do it justice. (I got this picture from a website.)

When you arrive at Tahquamenon Falls, there are a few places you can view the falls (there are upper and lower falls). The beauty of it all is amazing. The drive back through the trees is spectacular. This is not a journey for the faint of heart, though. There is a long climb up and down stairs to get the best view. It's definitely worth it!

The one thing most people notice is the color of the water. It is an amber color. This is the result of leaching of tannic acid from the cedar and hemlock swamps that feed the river.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this with all of you today...and a reminder...

As you view the beauty of God's creation, and the detail with which He governs it all, remember: this is the same care He takes with the details of your life!
