The Sign We Couldn't Miss
It seemed like we'd never find a doctor in this small town.
But God's love was with us...

In this article:
My husband, Gil, and I had finally reached Perry,
Georgia, a quaint little
town west of Savannah.
We’d been RVing for weeks, touring the South and exploring the cities and towns
tucked along the way. Gil guided us through the tree-lined streets, dotted with
boutiques and charming restaurants. There was so much to see! I looked over and
shot Gil a smile. But he was grimacing. "Gil, what’s wrong?" I asked.

takes a great deal out of me just to be able to keep up with the Christian
sites and mail, although, I love every minute of it, I may not be able to do as

had a little conversation about the papers; a question came to me, “Why does
all the work have to be written by you?” Good question, for none of this was
ever about me, my name, even the Better Tomorrows which has been in operation

when we stay Trusting Him and not on ourselves.
Lord, it is in you we trust, help us to never loose sight of your Loving guidance,
