I'd like to praise God for the joy I know as I am listening to my grandson's account of his youth group's mission trip to Twisp, WA. What a blessing to hear how the LORD is working in him as he approaches his junior year of high school. I am so glad to be his grandma as well as a prayer warrior for him and his family. The Lord loves to encourage me and HE has chosen this particular way today! May our Lord bless you all! Sheila Oh! In contrast, I am now listening to our daughter's account of how totally goofed up everything was today in the bookkeeping system where she works! Not a lot of delight there, except she seems to have taken it well... Thank you, Jesus!

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to pray over/for a lady whose body was just about finished living here on Earth.. This gal had no family present and had seemed to be very bitter during the time I was aware of her. You just 'gotta wonder' if she knew her days were coming to an end... (Her mind has been gone for over 3 years now.) I am sitting here wondering if I would change anything if I knew for certain that I'd 'pass on' within the next 48 hours or so... What about you? I am at peace with the LORD so I guess I'd just try to let others know I would be seeing them 'later' in the presence of Jesus! Other than that, I might take care of a little housework or call a few people I've not contacted recently.. And, of course, I'd spend a lot of time in my hubby's arms! Blessings for now!

Hello out there! Just in case anyone has time to read this, I am asking if you know how I can transfer my documents to these blog posts.. I'd love to eventually get all of my previous writings onto this blog so that I can just meet new people and give them this address so they can access whatever they'd like to read.. Is there any hope of being able to do this? Let me know what you know... Because He Loves You and Me! Sheila Dean

Hello to all- As I learn to use this more and as I spread the word about this way to make the materials I write and have written available to more readers, I trust you will bear with me.. I've just returned from 10 glorious nights/days up at Deception Pass (renamed Reception Pass by us last year since the Lord always has something for us to 'receive' when we are up there.) Well.... I guess the 'best' thing HE sent us this time was the joy of the assurance of His grace and presence in our lives constantly. Several opportunities arose for Him to just let us enjoy being His children! I trust that the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ will vitalize each of you day by day! I Corinthians 15:10 essentially says, "It is by the grace of God I am what I am- May that grace not be ineffectual.." Blessings to all! Sheila

Hello to all- I am just sitting here wondering how in the world someone who doesn't know the Lord could even begin to comprehend what Chuck Swindoll entitled his message today.. It was DYING TO LIVE... To anyone who might read this, I'd simply say that when we say "no" to our 'self,' and say 'yes' to the life of Christ which wants to live within us, we will never lack for peace, hope, and joy! 'For me to live is Christ and to die is to gain.' I love living life in communion and fellowship with the LORD GOD CREATOR of the vast cosmos as well as of me! What a thrill to know that HE calls me FRIEND!
