  1. Thanks I needed reminded of that lesson and you put it so well! We do get so busy that we forget to slow down and get zapped by His Power. Busyness is one of Satan’s greatest tools. We get so wrapped up in doing stuff, we forget to take that time to fill up with God. At first when I saw the title, “Light Linda Light, I thought… is God addressing me that personally cuz He knew I needed to hear it? Then I saw that He had written through my friend Linda. Thank you!

  2. You blessed me tremendously today!!! Thank you for your open heart and using your gifts to glorify God!!!

  3. A truly beautiful word from a truly beautiful woman and friend. I barely got around to logging in and reading your message, talk about busy-ness…Your words spoke mountains to me, I’ve got to work on putting God into my busy times too, and finding more quiet times for sure. hanks for letting Gods message flow through your encouraging words. Stay happy and healthy my friend.

  4. What a beautiful reminder to make time for God. It’s such a paradox that when we are the busiest and think that we have the least time for Him–that’s the time we need Him most.
    I want some black-eyed peas and cornbread, fried okra, and fresh tomatoes. My tomatoes are looking pretty iffy this year, so I may have to hit the farmer’s market. Thanks for that memory, too.

  5. Wow what a profound message. Thank you for sharing what is on your heart. You are such an inspiration to me!!! May I be as courageous and encouraging as you! I LOVE YOU FOREVER AND ALWAYS MOMMA!!!

  6. You are so awesome, Linda! Thank you for sharing your heart with me via the blog. Grace to you today and each day forward!
