The thoughts being shared here are loosely based on the book by Sarah Young, "Jesus Calling, Enjoying Peace in His Presence". 

I have read this devotional day by day, more than once now. 

But for some reason, this time is different. 
Deep introspection into me, my life, and my faith.
As a Christian. 

As a woman. 

As Rick's widow. 

As Momma, Mother-in-law, Grannee, and Great-Grannee. 
A growing in insight and understanding about this life I strive to live, the walking and talking with the LORD. 
Jesus Calling, Enjoying Peace in His Presence is the work of Sarah Young.
