What a journey it has been these last weeks.  I have laughed, cried, and been extremely humbled once again.  As I began to talk about what God has done, just for me, I didn’t imagine how much healing would go on in my heart even during this 10-week time frame.

Even as I write, Jerry and I are again trying to remember to allow peace to rule our individual hearts and minds, and also, to rule our home.  We have always desired our home to be a place where anyone could come and feel peace because peace was the Spirit lingering therein.

In a world full of questions, pain, heartache, and dysfunction, we know we have all that we need because we have each other and we have the Light that desires to shine in even the darkest night, JESUS.

I thank you for all the precious comments and for the encouragement that continued to drive me back to the pen and pad.  What a joy to share a small glimpse into our home and a hope to all who need to know God still performs miracles.  If one person found hope because of desperation driving them to read this blog, then everything has been worth it!

God is faithful.  God is faithful, God is faithful.

Take a chance and ride the white water with Him.  What an adventure!!!

Now, as Oprah would say; “what I know for sure.”

God was not going to allow Jerry and Pam to raise Lyndsey without His guidance and presence in our home.

God intended the Burrows to be a family ‘til death us do part.

I would have never been who I am today without walking through the fire.

Many lives can be changed through great pain and heartache.

Some of my greatest worship was done in the darkest days of despair.

I am blessed with the greatest mother in the world.  God overwhelmed me!

God uses everything for His glory.

God keeps His word.

“I’ve seen the lily push its way, right through the stubborn sod.  I believe in miracles, for I believe in God.”  — Carlton Buck and John Peterson

I remain overwhelmed even after 18 years of being medicine free!

In the summer of 1995, I took the last of my medicine (even without an active decision)…see previous post, and took God’s promise and held it close to my heart.  I cannot tell you how many years it took before I would not wake up and immediately look in my eyes in the bathroom mirror.  It seems that was always the first place the symptoms would appear.  That doesn’t sound like a lot of faith, does it?  I say this because I want to make it very clear.  I do not think in any way I had anything to do with God’s decision to grant me healing!  I wasn’t praying the right prayer, I just prayed!  I wasn’t having enough faith, I just clung to the promise.  I wasn’t believing I deserved healing, I just allowed God to work on my heart.  I have, nor ever had, strength, faith, love, power, or good in me except through the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

What I did do was entertain the idea of beginning to seek God.  Perhaps I could get up a little earlier in the morning and seek God.  Perhaps I could be open to the fact God could speak to me.  Perhaps I could ask for cleansing of a heart wounded and hard.  Perhaps I could ask for forgiveness for blatant disobedience to my Savior.

God was there so quickly it still overwhelms me.  Oh, what a Savior…Oh, what a Friend.

I have had the opportunity to share my healing testimony many times through the years and each time is a joy for me.  I have gotten to talk about that first time I really knew God spoke to me.  I have gotten to share how broken I was and how in love with my Lord I am.  I have been blessed to hear the voice of God and proclaim He does speak to us!

I was given the sheer joy of raising our daughter and seeing her become a beautiful young woman, well accomplished and in love with her Lord.

I have been blessed with a husband who leans totally on his Lord every day and seeks Him with all his heart.  God radically changed him and he is wildly in love with God.   (And me  Smiley face )

I never want to be silent about how much God changed us and I never want to forget one moment how He touched me and made me whole…

It is no secret what God can do.

What He’s done for others.

He’ll do for you.

With arms wide open.

He’ll welcome you.

It is no secret what God can do.  — Stuart Hemblen

I could go on and on, but I pray I have been an instrument used by God on the WWW to bring hope to one wounded heart.  One life changed could pass on a story that would change a family, alter the course of destruction, and watch a miracle unfold.  It did!!!


Jeremiah 29:11-14

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.  I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord,” and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
