There are three girls in our family. I’m the youngest. My oldest sister Linda is intelligent, beautiful, caring, and, let’s just say, a little bossy. Well, that is what older sisters are supposed to be — in charge when Mom isn’t around. What if Mom is around?

Let’s not leave out the middle sister, Debbie. Funny how the middle child often gets left out. She is also smart, beautiful, sensitive, and more passive. I, on the other hand, am stubborn (still working on that). Like most younger siblings, I loved to aggravate my oldest sister. I would even encourage Debbie to stand up for herself. I would tell her, “Just hit her once, I’ll take over.” (That one, I have gotten over.)

  All I had to do to make Linda mad was to say, ”So.”  I enjoyed it so much; she would get furious.  I didn’t care if she would hit me; I wasn’t afraid of her.

  Hmmm, maybe we need to tell Satan that liar, “So!”

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour…” (I Peter 5:8)

  Psalms 37 tells us not to fret, but to trust, delight, commit, rest, cease from anger, and depart from evil.  Every one of these words or phrases could be a study in themselves.  When things are rough, and you don’t know what to do, continue to do those things you know to be tried, tested, and proven.  Just tell that liar, “So!” We don’t have to be afraid of him.

“But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them…” (II Timothy 3:14)

My day starts with a cup of good coffee and a talk with Jesus. I started walking with Jesus when I was eighteen. That was In March 1979. I have fought many battles. No I haven’t won them all, but I have learned how to not only survive but thrive. Let me share with you...
