A blast from the past: I’ve been back in contact with one of my half sisters. For those unfamiliar with my upbringing, briefly, I am adopted. I was adopted at the age of two days and never knew my birth-family. By mutual consent my adopted family and I have lost each other’s numbers. Long story of anger, abuse, rebellion and discontentment. Anyway, in the mid-1980’s I found and contacted most of my biological family (pre-internet too!). This half sister, Kimberly, by the same mother, I’ve known since that time, with periods of disconnect because of her life choices. Poor dear, she had chosen to get as far away from God as humanly possible. She’s made a muddle of her garden (life). We had little in common for a long, long time. But the draw of blood kin is strong. Recently, I contacted her via FaceBook, and by all accounts, has finally hit complete, utter rock bottom. Please, dear fellow Saints in Christ, pray with me that she will now look up to the real Rock, our loving LORD Jesus Christ, and rely completely on Him as we all must? Thank you. I’m doing what I can from many miles away to encourage her to walk with Him. She is disabled by her sins now and truly has nothing but the clothes on her back as she has lived on the streets engaging in physical ‘pleasures’. I haven’t asked if she needs one but I thought I might send a Holy Bible that’s written in our language (not King James). Maybe some study guides. I did tell her how it’s important to find a Church that is kindly. We’re all sinners seeking His throne of grace. Any tips or ideas are most welcome my friends. I’m not very good at leading lost sheep but when God calls, I plan to answer. When we serve others, we serve God.
It’s been foggy and unseasonably warm in our neck of the woods day-after-day. Not a bad thing, just noticeable. I actually could hear the tree frogs singing last night. That’s so unusual for it being nearly January.
That’s about it except Hubby and I decided to start laying off the sugar. It’s making us too lethargic. It’s hard to do God’s Will when all I want to do is veg on the coach. *lol* Sugar and I are old enemies with my blood-sugar problems. I know better.
