Today we are going to move on to lighter fare while I try to figure out what, under the sun I did to goof up my blog site! Pardon the mess. For now, you can read the posts, so I’ll keep them coming. We’ll be back to the topic of friendship soon....
I know the drawing was supposed to be this morning, but we had a snow day! Ron didn’t have to go to work, I worked last night, so we slept in. That put everything behind. By the time we had our late morning brunch AND built a snowman together, the day was...
It’s not too late! There’s one more day left before the drawing for our first Valentine’s Gritty Grace Giveaway. See rules here. (very few!) Depending on how many entries you want to make, it can be as simple as making a comment here. Right now,...
I want to brighten your cold winter, so we’re having our first Gritty Grace Giveaway! It is open to all but I think ladies will be the most interested (or the men who love them!) Sorry, this is not the site where you will be winning a free IPad…not this...
Welcome to a Place of Hope

I’m Martha. I’m so glad you came to visit. This is a place for women who are scared, overwhelmed, brokenhearted and losing hope. One thing we can find together is hope. The Biblical kind that is confident expectation in the person and promises of GOD!
In 2015, my husband had a stroke which changed our lives on many levels. I waited the required year after to see what the final outcome of his recovery would be, and when the time was up, I experienced a very dark time despite the fact that he had improved considerably.
I began seeking out how to find hope for a person who is scared, overwhelmed and brokenhearted. Because I ran the gamut of all those feelings. Often, I still do.
We all need the encouragement of GOD’s Word to remind us of who GOD is, what His promises are and how certain our hope is in Him! It is not because of how strong our faith is but because of who the One is in whom we place it!
But let me back up a bit and tell you a little about myself. I am a wife of just over 50 years to a now retired pastor, a mom of 3 daughters who are grown and married, with 7 grands. I’m also an RN.
We have lived in a variety of places in our years of ministry including Jamaica, FL, TX, IL and now AL near one of our daughters.
Now that COVID has arrived, our neat, controlled worlds have all been turned upside-down. It makes no difference what our age or stage in life, everything has changed. The things we once based our hope on have all shifted.
Come join us as we find hope together in Christ! We’re all learning new ways to trust Him as we discover places we once thought we firm are now shifting out from under us.
