    Laurie, I love your blog and I look forward to receiving it in my in-box every weekend.

    I just listened to your lesson on “The Widow.” Oh, my goodness! You taught the truth so clearly! And, dear one, Jesus has 100% of you! Thank you for the effort you put into living for Him. Christ is gloriously on display in your life!

    Much love to you,
    Dianne Stavropoulos

      Oh my, what a nice note. I really fell in love with the widow. I am so glad God sees the truth about everyone. I am sure He doesn’t have 100% of me but I know He is all I really have. Nothing else in life is certain. Let’s both display Him.
