Thoughts on Life from trustworthy sources

I lift up my eyes to the hills-
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.  
Psalm 121:1,2

“You will never know how much you believe something until it is a matter of life and death.” “If you think of this world as a place intended simply for our happiness, you find it quite intolerable: think of it as a place of training and correction and it’s not so bad.” 
– God in the Dock, page 52  

In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, 
for I have overcome the world. 
--Jesus Christ

The world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it. 
--Helen Keller

  3. Dear Mrs. VanderKruk,

    Thoughts and prayers go out big time for you today and everyday. Joanne, you sure are a writer, wow! You are simply amazing and seriously, you must write a book. You have a God given talent. Today, granddaughter, Jaimee is over for a few nights to sleepover. Emily and her love it. School is out and then it is fun, fun for the kids. All is well here, thinking of you much and praying for you much.

    Love, Lucinda Sluys
