Dear Subscribers to ThereGoesConnie.com —
First of all, thank you so very much for allowing me to show up in your email box every Monday and Friday. I love your comments, and it encourages me so much to know you are “out there,” reading and maybe learning, laughing or even crying right along with me.
Since May 2015, every Friday I have posted an excerpt from the journals I kept while Steve and I were serving as missionaries in Ecuador. As I poured through those journals, I realized that most of what remains is intensely personal. There were days when I was crying out to God on behalf of a family member and a situation back home. Other days I was wrestling so hard with physical, emotional and spiritual challenges. Satan never seemed to leave me alone for a day. Much of that is just too raw to share.
What I have posted so far about our missionary days will likely end up in a separate e-Book before too long. But, it occurred to me that I needed to be acknowledging and sharing what God is teaching me in THIS time of my life — maybe even lessons He taught me that very week.
So, starting today, my Friday devotional posts will be much more recent and will be under the heading of “God Continues to Teach Me.” Monday posts will continue to be travel-related. Fresh posts about New Orleans, the coast of Maine and the World Food Championships in Orange Beach are coming up this fall, so stay with me.
I look forward to reading your comments and suggestions.
