    I am sorry Kitty Chicky Cat—actually I have had some procedures lately b/c I was having some health issues but they have been coming back fine—PTL!!! I should have said I am okay but I was more or less thinking of all the obstacles and heartaches that come upon probably everyone in life and how, for me especially, my faith in God keeps me from being broken in a bad way. His breaking is always for our good and can still be painful but it turns out for good. To me their is another one at work that tries to break us to destroy, and steal and kill! Sorry–hope this isn’t a bad explanation but thank you for your concern sweetie—I am hanging in there and doing okay!

    I’m sorry you’ve had to go through these hardships!!! But I’m glad you know The One who will never let you alone!!! GOD will bless you greatly for your faith and faithfulness through these hard times!!! I’m glad you’re doing ok now and I’ll pray for peace, health, and safety through whatever lies ahead!!!
    “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
    (Numbers 6:22-26)

    Thank you dear sister Kitty Chicky Cat for your encouragement. One of my VERY favorite Scriptures is one you referred to. Romans 8–For I am persuaded that neither death nor life “not to stop short here” but NOTHING can separate us from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord—thank you again sweetie!
