Some months writing Peter’s Wife is easy. The thoughts come, the words flow, and with only a little editing the newsletter is ready to publish. Some months, like this one, I start and discard, start and discard. My heart is full and I have much on my mind, but it is hard to put in words that will bless others.
I don’t seek out the news, whether local or international. I just get a news feed, and give it a cursory look. Usually it does not affect me much. But sometimes I’m forced to pay closer attention, take some action, and pray about the stories I read.
This month I cannot get the news off my mind. So many sad and disappointing stories! So many places where it seems like Satan is winning! I need to see how God is at work.
