Thank you for stopping by. It's my hope you find glimpses of my Savior interwoven thru my writings. I am the wife to one husband for over 25 years, a blessed mama to a dozen children, yes each born from me ~ two of which see Jesus face to face & ten at home, all of us yearning to see Jesus someday. We have been home educating for over 18 years with . . . well, another 15 years to go (the youngest is 3, the oldest 23!) I have walked through rejection, to continually learning I am CALLED, LOVED and forever KEPT by God - never, ever to be rejected by Jesus! (Jude 1:1) I've walked through deep sorrow to find that joy does come again, though the night may be long; I've witnessed God orchestrating miracles with my children still beyond my comprehension, & I am seeing new love forming as we begin a new road of older children finding life mates. My life has and is a journey, from the deepest, almost rock bottom pit, to stumbling through my faith and looking towards the ultimate climax of everlasting life in heaven. Will you be joining me here and there? ~ Loni

Poem - God Remains Our Source of Courage

"God Remains Our Source of Courage"
Greg Asimakoupoulos

God remains our source of courage
when we're traumatized by terror.
When we're haunted by the headlines
and the violence everywhere.

Hear God whisper in the silence,
"Don't despair, I'm in control.
Hurting hearts and broken cities
will at last one day be whole."

God can feel the pain of suffering
when grenades and bombs explode.
When a son is robbed of living
at a checkpoint on a road.

Then God whispers in the silence,
"Justice will in time be done.
I will stand with those who need me
'til my Kingdom fully comes."

God can see disasters coming
when we try to get away.
When the twisting wind and flooding
turn our world a greenish gray.

Yet God whispers in the silence,
"In the tumult of the storm,
I won't ever leave you orphaned.
if by faith you've been twice-born."

God knows when our own tsunamis
wash away our inner peace.
When a doctor's diagnosis
triggers worries that won't cease.

But God whispers in the silence,
"You can make it. You'll survive.
Even if you're taken under,
by My grace you'll be alive."

God invites us to be trusting
when we find that faith is hard.
When we're fearful for our safety
and our nerves are frayed or jarred.
Still God whispers in the silence,
"Even when your faith is weak,
I will keep your feet from stumbling
when your way is dark and bleak."
