Reflection: Sometimes I think God's instructions on written in invisible ink. I can't see them for my desire to go it my own way. Then the words become unreadable and my focus is elsewhere.

FEBRUARY 26, 2024 
Welcome to 2024!!! I am delighted to be close to sending a "daily" inspiration once again. Thank you all for your patience as we left CA and settled in NC. It was a journey, but all went better than expected. We found a lovely home and are slowly getting into a routine. There are still many boxes to unpack, so the messages may be sporadic for a little while. May this day bring you joy!!
