've learned over the years that the key to successful living is to walk by faith and not fear. I have to remind myself of this each and every day because there's still lots to fear in my day-to-day life. My son is moving out and has rented a three bedroom apartment in the city. He's got a couple of roommates and is busy painting the entire apartment right now with the hope of moving in soon. I'm hoping he enjoys his new place and that I'll adjust quickly to an empty house. I'm hoping I figure out what to do about snow removal as I know winter is just 'round the bend. I'm hoping I find the energy to stain the new part of the deck before it gets too cold. I'm hoping my etsy shops continue to do well and I'm hoping to start working part time as a receptionist at the company my late husband used to work for. I love H O P E. It keeps me going. It energizes me. It crushes my fears.W

I know He is in control of all things and that there is absolutely no reason to fear. But sometimes I still need a gentle reminder. You too? Well, let's make a concerted effort to be women of hope because there is so much to hope for and in! "Regardless"
is a word I like when I choose faith over fear ... but that's a topic for another discussion! Thanks for your prayers. My family is grateful.
