Hope Irvin Marston, you delivered another fabulous read. I felt as if Rankin was a boy up the road.
I felt as if Rankin was standing at my side. His thoughts and feelings were mine. In addition to capturing my attention and pulling me into the story,
I learned something new about the War of 1812 and its relation to Oswego County. Thank you Hope!
Thankful God is always there and doesn't give up on us,
even when we give up on Him. I lost my sister in 1994 and found
Jesus in 2006 thanks to the boldness of a child.
Although I didn't trust God because I blamed Him for taking
Heidi from us, at least I kept talking to Him. For many years it
was me yelling, crying, and complaining to Him and then
it transitioned to thanksgiving, praise, and reflection.
One thing we all need to remember is to keep in
communication with God. My line of communication
was one way for over a decade but
thankfully I started to listen.
If you haven't talked to God lately, would you do it
right now? Prayer is communicating with God ~ it has to start somewhere and somehow but the one thing that is needed...YOU!
Give it to God, His shoulders are bigger, stronger,
willing, and able to carry your burdens.
Did you know "talking" to God is the first step to prayer?
The next step is to listen, then it becomes a conversation.
Go figure, you can talk to and hear from God. Is today the
day you take the first step, even if it is yelling for now ~
it is necessary for the healing to begin.
I believed in God, knew the Our Father and Hail Mary and sometimes did my Rosary yet the thought of having a relationship with Jesus never crossed my mind. Prayer wasn’t a daily part of my life, if at all. So when tragedy struck…
Life stopped. A red light in this intersection called life. Over eighteen years ago my only sister disappeared while working alone at the D & W convenience store.
When Heidi disappeared I didn’t trust anyone, especially God. Why would I trust a God who allowed a young, beautiful, and successful young woman to be kidnapped? Why?
Find out tonight, 6:30 p.m. at the Oswego Alliance Church
