The Anchor Holds.....

Hey friends! I am still here, still trying to stay one step ahead of the storm.

Thank you all for your encouraging words, your e-mails and your prayers. The storm continues to rage but, in spite of the storm, My Anchor HOLDS.

I am better in some ways. I am no longer crying myself to sleep every night.

I have been able to share with a few of my close friends. That has helped. I am terrible about keeping stuff to myself and and trying to deal with it alone. I'm not sure why I do that, though.

I have awesome friends who I know love me and would do anything for me, but for some reason I have to deal with "it" myself first and then I will begin to slowly share, but only with a few people.

There are days I take 20 steps forward and I think, "Ok, I can handle this, I am strong, I'm gonna make it", but then a HUGE gust of wind comes and I end up 120 steps back.

I have a very important appointment Wednesday at 10am. I ask you to pray in advance for this appointment, but also please pray Wednesday at this specific time.

I heard this today:
Instead of telling God how big your storm is, tell your storm How big God is....

I leave you with the words of the song "The Anchor Holds" by Ray Boltz....


I have journeyed
Through the long, dark night
Out on the open sea
By faith alone
Sight unknown
And yet His eyes were watching me

The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
The anchor holds
Though the sails are torn
I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
The anchor holds
In spite of the storm

Ive had visions
Ive had dreams
Ive even held them in my hand
But I never knew
They would slip right through
Like they were only grains of sand


I have been young
But I am older now
And there has been beauty
That these eyes have seen
But it was in the night
Through the storms of my life
Oh, that's where God proved
His love to me


My Anchor Holds, In spite of the storm.
