The wise woman builds her house,
But the foolish tears it down with her own hands.
The year was 2017. The diagnosis was bilateral invasive breast cancer. The events of the year were certainly unexpected and unpredictable, but the Lord, in His faithfulness, love, grace, and mercy, carried us through by His amazing strength. As of today, following much prayer, many doctors’ appointments, and two surgeries, as far and we know medically, my body is cancer free. But 2017 also brought some other things into my life.
We all know that the Scriptures teach that our life is but a vapor and will fade away. We know that it is appointed to each of us a time to die, and we know that our days are numbered. But 2017 brought a time of examination into my life. With a clear view that my life could have ended here on earth, I had to ask the Lord what He would have me do with the future days that He has graciously placed before me. The Lord has so blessed my life through His Word over the last 33 years. He saved me, totally changed our marriage, helped me raise our son, taught me so many truths, and essentially gave me a new life. I cannot keep these blessings to myself. I must share them and allow the Lord to bring them into the hands of those who need encouragement in truth. I also leave these writings, with great love, to the next generation.
So … for 2018, I have been led to write devotional posts entitled Every Wise Woman. Simple devotional thoughts will be written to encourage women in their walk with the Lord, in their marriages, and in their homes with their families. We will build truth upon truth through these simple devotions. The posts are not already written. I will write as the Lord leads. I do appreciate your prayers.
I invite you to join the journey and to invite others to join us, as well. You will be able to find these posts on our blog at http://www.wisdomandkindness.com and can follow the blog there to have the posts sent to your email address, or you can have them show in your Facebook feed by liking our Facebook page entitled Wisdom and Kindness.
Looking forward to the journey. Praying that you will join us. May the Lord bless!
