I was excited, I was prepared, and I was grinning at God’s grace to allow me to be on radio. Sound familiar? That was a couple of decades ago. And sitting behind that microphone, I began…and  didn’t stop. Maybe I took a breath, maybe not. But my host might have been gasping, annoyed with my endless gab.

God doesn’t promise a day without problems, or moments without trials, but aligned with Him,  He promises a satisfied soul.

Two days ago, even my keyboard felt sticky. The air conditioner decided to stop working. And, in the Florida summer heat, my energy was melting into drops of worry. What if we need to repair the whole thing, what if there is no fix for days? How will this affect my parents who live with us and just reached their mid-80’s?
