Who is “we”? I would love to explore your faith more, I just can’t tell from this. Also, I wanted to let you know that the formatting of this makes the text a light yellow color on a white background. The only reason why I was able to read this is because I highlighted the text. I would love to see this fixed so that I can read it better! Thanks! 🙂
Thank you for reading, and also for bringing it our attention about the need to change the font color. What happened is that we changed themes on our blog from a dark background and then forgot to go back in and change the font colors on some of the posts. So, wow, thanks!
Who is “we”? That would be my husband, Erick, and me. We are not affiliated with a particular church so I felt it important to express what we believe in. We are not trying to tell anyone else how to believe. We think that is a personal decision that should be left to each individual. But it’s important for our readers to know where we’re coming from.
We also feel it is important to be able to hopefully, lol, communicate not only what we believe, but why. Our beliefs are where we get our strength. Our joy. And our love. We started this blog to “share the love of Jesus with others like He shares His love with us”. It’s pretty simple, and straight-forward. We are blessed with the gifts of encouragement and a deep love for everyone.
We are so blessed that you have found us, and we hope that you will come here often, be encouraged, and share what’s in your heart.
Sharon & Erick
Hello there! Thank you so much for subscribing to my blog. Naturally, as soon as I the official new-subscriber-email, I trotted over to your site to give it a look-see. I’m thrilled to find a fellow Christian with such a firm, clearly biblical stance. Keep on keeping on! Your blog is an encouragement.
I’m so glad that we are an encouragement. As you are to us, too. A clearly biblical stance is really important to us. I’m glad it comes across that way. In our websites in the past, we had a few people who would go off on tangents, saying things were in the Bible, that clearly weren’t and they upset the other members who were trying to take anything in the Bible in context, and be led by the Holy Spirit. I, unfortunately, wasn’t mature enough back then, and deleted the site rather than confront the persons who were stirring up problems. That experience brought us to the realization that being clear and letting the Holy Spirit lead our site and prayerfully representing the Bible and not just opinions was of uppermost importance. Your words are truly an encouragement to me. Thank you again, and may we continue to be a blessing to you. We look forward to following your site as well as you bless others by sharing what God puts on your heart. God bless you, new, dear friend in Christ. Sharon
What a lovely couple you are! And a lovely blog, as well. God bless you abundantly, today and always! love, sis Caddo
Thanks for your wonderful comments. It is very encouraging to hear from you. Can you tell that my husband is sooooooooo much younger than I am? 32 years actually! God has really blessed us by helping us find each other! Many blessings to you. Sharon
Wow, that is cool, Sharon! Just shows you that God is NOT Limited!! You’re welcome at my blog anytime! love, Caddo
Definitely gonna check your blog out! Give me a little time! So much going on, but trying to get better at following and reading other blogs! Thanks for your encouragement. It means so very much to me to hear from others who feel that God is NOT limited! †Sharon
Truthfully, Sharon–just hearing about you and your wonderful husband blessed me so much. I’d pretty much decided “true love” was not included in my life package (a horrid, and brief marriage when I was 21). But something about the little bit of info you shared made me sit up and say, “maybe I was wrong–maybe God was saving the good stuff for later…” So, thank you for the boost of faith–I won’t forget it!! May He continue to bless you both with Big Joy!!
Well, actually there is a major story about us. I’ll write it someday soon, I hope and pray. It was very encouraging to hear that it made such an impact on you. So, you see, you are prompting me to go ahead and share mine and Erick’s story real soon. Meanwhile, hang in there. A little bit of a preview . . . Erick was 27, I was 59 when we met. We’ve been married for 8 1/2 years. Beautiful relationship with God and each other. A miracle! And I always say, “I had to wait for him to be born and grow up for awhile, or else they would have put me in jail for dating a child! LOL” God truly knows what’s best for each one of us. Sometimes we have to wait! And most importantly, not to run ahead of God. But even when we do run ahead, God can work all things together. Much love and blessings, Caddo. And thanks again for your inspiring thoughts. I feel we are dear friends, even across the distance, and never having seen each other. What a joy you are to us! †Sharon
Another quick tidbit of info. I had been married 3 times before Erick. And I had horrific relationships and marriages and a horrific childhood. I can relate to you, Caddo. Hang in there!
Sharon, this just keeps getting better and better!! I’m 59 for a few more months (and have convinced myself that I’m “impossible” to live with). Please don’t misunderstand that I’m unhappy being solo–part of the problem is that I’m too independent, self-sufficient! It does sound like we have a lot in common–bad marriage and childhood–but for God, we’d likely not still be here! Can’t wait to read more of your story–so I guess I’d better subscribe to follow now, before the line gets too long, eh? Y’all love each other good! love, sis Caddo
