Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105
I know how important it is to be in the Word of God, and even more so during a time of deep suffering, but I’m finding it hard to focus chapter by chapter. So I set a task for myself.
Friends (many of you) have sent cards and emails that include verses to encourage us. Last week I began writing each one in my journal. The physical act of writing causes me to slow down and consider the words. They speak more powerfully to me this way, perhaps because it is active rather than passive.
This morning I looked back through the pages and was struck by the beauty in these words. They are a powerhouse of hope; I know I’ll return to them over and over in the next months and years.
If you have a verse for me, email it ([email protected]), leave a comment, or mail it to me on paper that I can hold in my hand. My sweet friend has been receiving mail for me at:

See, the Word of God is alive! It is at work and is sharper than any double-edged sword — it cuts right through to where soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and it is quick to judge the inner reflections and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
I am deeply thankful to all of you who encourage me with your prayers and kindness.
