  2. Thank you so much for the follow and visit. I’m definitely following you. :0)

    Wow, your blog is named after the scripture that I cried out often to and still used to remind God of His promises; for they never come back void.

    Thank you for being obedient to God and confirming God’s promises.

    Abundant blessings to you and yours, Emma

  3. That is great I have not been getting to a lot of post because I have been writing so much to keep my mind on track, If I read my mind would wander, by writing I was learning about the bible. I have asked you because your work is something a person like me turning to God late in life can learn from. Could you please send me a contact, I tried putting in Isaiah 53:5 in the invitation box and it kept regretting. I am going out for a little while this morning, tying up a few loose ends before next week but will be on line this afternoon. Then I can get an invite of to you. I need a user name or email..I will be doing a post stating there will be some guest authors on deck while I am away and you will all have full credit for your work. Thank you BJ.
