“Watch, therefore; you do not know when the lord of the house is coming…” Mark 14: 35a

Waiting, wondering, watching,
Tarrying time until
Christ comes.
He replenishing me with
God with us. Emmanuel.

My dear blog friends, Thank you so much for your congratulations and loving support. This is certainly a new venture. Marilyn hit the nail on the head…”may all who read them be led to a deeper union with God.” And I add…a deeper love of the Word of God. I am learning each day new things about blogging, so please be patient with me as I muddle my way through new knowledge and new technology. Much love, prayers and hugs to each one of you. Sr. Juliemarie, SND

Dear friend, Sr. Juliemarie…

I’ve been told that God speaks to me often, and that sometimes He speaks to me THROUGH OTHERS!!! could that “Other” possibly be YOU, dear heart??? 🙂

Love, blessings of the heart, and ongoing prayers,
Ol’ Trudy Nelson


Sr Juliemarie McDonald November 30, 2011 at 6:23 pm

I do believe he speaks to us through others. I always considered you that other. Just keep me in that prayer jar. Another poem is churning in my heart. Much love, Juliemarie


Sr Juliemarie McDonald November 30, 2011 at 6:25 pm
