Neither, Nor

"For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels nor principalities,

 nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any

 other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in

 Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38, 39

...that's a lot of "nor"s! More than anything, I want to be "persuaded", truly persuaded of this. I am persuaded in my brain, but sometimes my heart forgets. No matter our failings, a Christian can be sure that our Lord God loves, loves, loves us. 

Blessings are surely had in putting God's Word to memory. I am thankful for children and teens in our church who we can memorize with. I am finding that a teen's mind is so much keener than mine these days. No excuses though. We are to hide God's Word in our hearts "that I might not sin against thee".
It is also a "persuader", as we reckon the Word to be true!

We have been through many things with Mom these past two weeks. Those of you who are "pray"ers ~you know who you are (:  ~we would appreciate much prayer for her. These days I have been more and more thankful for her as she goes through struggles and praises the Lord regularly. It is truly a blessing to spend time with Mom. She teaches me daily. Now she is struggling with health problems that she's never experienced. She is trusting the Lord. We, as family members, are learning to do so too.

The tomatoes are on the vines here. Many of you are probably enjoying their fruit already. Ours are still green, but we're looking forward to picking soon. 

Happy Summer to you all!
