It matters how we think and how we act. I had the best view of how Karen lived this out. While I had the best view, others saw it too. We can have this as well. Please read what she wrote about living in the hard and happy days.

Those who know and love my Karen will smile when I mention that she was not a lady with lots of words. So in the upcoming features of “Karen’s Notes,” my introductions and observations will be as brief as I can make them. You’ll see this beginning next week.
Karen invested time thinking through the characteristics of God. She was especially focused on His greatness. Let me share with you a little of what Psalm 145 meant to her.
Karen was reading Luke 17:11-19. It is the account of the ten lepers who were healed. The one leper who returned to the Lord Jesus and glorified God was of particular interest to her. It was Karen’s intention never to lose her sense of gratitude to the Lord because of Who He is and what He was doing.
Insights from a Glory-Bound Lady”
I met Karen in the third grade. We grew up together. When we began dating in our senior year of high school, I soon knew that this was the young lady I wanted to marry and with whom I wanted to grow old. During the forty-six years that we were married, I watched her memorizing and applying God’s promises to her life. She loved the changing seasons and often thought of a promise or two from the Lord that she would claim in that particular season.
Then cancer suddenly and dramatically struck our lives. Many circumstances changed quickly; however, her trust in the Lord’s promises did not. I am honored to share what she wrote about being content and trusting Him. I recently found her handwritten note about Hebrews 13:5 and hope that it will encourage and bless you or someone that you know.
