Cath Dean

Just beautiful, I love following your blog, thank you for sharing not only your craft but your life.
Thinking of you,

Sandy  Desaulniers

such beautiful cards! I love your site.


Hope you don't mind... I'm commenting on 2 posts in one day. I just want to say I understand what you are saying. I lost my Mom 7-1/2 months ago. I miss her terribly but I don't believe it is as hard for me as it is for my Dad. I have my daily life which she was not a part of (although I called her nearly every day.) My Dad is suffering as you are - every moment for him is altered.


Amen and God Bless ...continue to lift you and your boys up in prayer...

Kim Kowal

You are truly an inspiration Julie. May God continue to Bless you. You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Georgie in Somerset

Beautiful post--and yes...GOD IS GOOD! Thank GOD we go through trials with Him by our sides!! You are truly blessed--great is His faithfulness!


I do feel so sorry for those people that don't have God in their lives to lean on at times like this, so glad to hear your faith has kept strong thoughout all of this!

Evette K. Ciampo

Julie...God bless u today and always. Your faith inspires others and makes my day so much brighter reading your blogs and listening to the music you put on here. You have helped me to be much more grateful for what I have each and everyday thanks to our Dear Lord. Thank you. Hugs forever. Russ was blessed to have had you in his life and you to have him. Now you do have part of him with your sons. How blessed is that? Life is indeed beautiful with faith.

WooT! Julie you are such an inspirations! Thanks for sharing your strength with us! Vickie


Dear Julie
I just recently found your blog. I was taken back to learn about your husband. Please except my sincere condolences.
I love your testamony. Writing down all to be thankful for during your loss is most exceptional of you. Continue to hold on to your beautiful memories they will last a lifetime. May Gods love continue to surround you and embrace you and your children. Blessings...


Julie you are still in my thoughts and prayers and I too appreciate knowing your inner most thoughts Your strength and struggles truely keeps me humble and on track spirtually. Thank you


Julie, five months is still such a short time and of course Russ is in your thoughts and feelings constantly. I have been left without my best friend and spouse now for five years and the hurt is still within me. I admire you for being so positive and remembering all the good things that you have and listed. More of us should appreciate what we have - even just the little things in life that God has provided for us. I think of you often. Your friends in blogland are here for you too. We like the person you are. Love to you and your boys. So cute they are.


God Bless you...hugs

Janice Waymire

What an inspiration you are! We have a GREAT GOD and he truly is carring you in his arms! What a beautiful testimony of his love and care for you. Thank you for sharing with all of us. You are an amazing woman and his love shows through you!


Amen Sister.
You are such a wonderful Christian wife, mother and witness. God is with you and I can feel that even through the computer screen.
It is so amazing that you are so open and honest with us and yourself.
God is good. His plans are high above our plans....But so is HIS LOVE.

Eva U

Thanks for showing all of us that when you love Jesus and trust in Him you can endure the very hardest trial and still live victoriously(though not without pain).

Jennifer Ingram

Way to go Julie, life has to go on and you are coping admirably - I do so admire you. Jennifer xx


Thank you for sharing your inner most thoughts with us. You are truly a blessed women who blesses everyone else with your strength. You are such an inspiration and an awesome example of how great God is. May you feel His love each and every day - He is there for you to draw strength.
May God continue to bless you each and every day.

Julie Carlisle



That is a powerful testimony of God's grace! You are living out the verse "in everything give thanks" and the verse, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me"! I am SO glad that God is strengthening you and holding your hand and providing for you and your boys. He is truly our help in time of need. You are 'living out your faith' in Him on a daily basis. May God bless and strengthen you and continue to give you all that you need. And, on top of that, may He give you the desires of your heart! And He will, because He is indeed good!!!


You are an inspiration!!! Thank you!

Pat Jandacek

I so appreciate you sharing your highs and lows with us in such a straightforward manner. I hope it benefits you in some way to the degree it benefits me. The Holy Spirit residing in you shines through.
...praise be to God.

Cindy S.

Julie, You are an awesome woman of God! Keep looking up!

madeline Morcelo

Julie, thanks for sharing these words with us...very well stated!


Your faith is an inspiration to us all!! I especially love #10. He is faithful and will always be with us and we know that all things work for good. My favorite scripture is Phil. 4:13 I can do all things through christ who strengthens me.
I pray you have strength and a peace that passes all understanding. God bless you!!


Praise Him for His faithfulness!!!


You are such an inspiration! Thank you and God bless!

Chris Dickinson

Praise God for all of the blessings you have! Thanks for sharing what the LORD is doing in your life!


Very well stated, Julie. :)


Yay for you Julie! You have it exactly right! Dwell on the blessings and not the numbers on the calendar! God has so much more JOY ahead for you! I pray you'll be able to handle it all! :o)


You are AMAZING Julie! You are so right to know that Russ is always with you & the boys. Keep that faith!


I've never posted before, but I've been reading your blog for the past couple of years. I just want you to know what an inspiration you are. I'm amazed by how strong and gracious you prove to be each and every day. You are one of a kind and you make me want to live my life better. Sending you lots of prayers and happy thoughts from Montana. Keep it up girl, you're unbelieveable!


Julie, you have a ministry you probably don't think about or realize....Sharing your story and your remarkable faith has helped so many of us get ourselves back on track. I ache for you and your boys. I hope the "love" you feel from all of us helps to soothe you at times.

We so often try to live by our own strength instead of relying on God to help us. Thank you for "keeping it real" for us and sharing so much of yourself. You are truly a blessing!

Gail Binette

Oh Julie, Bless your great big heart!

Pam W

Julie, you are amazing. I read your shared thoughts and am overwhelmed with your steadfast faith and courage. Your life journey has taken you to this place that I would fear going. I hope you realize the inspiration you give to so many, including me. May you continue to walk in God's pathway as he leads you.


God is the helping hand...the husband to the widow...and father to all who accept Him.

Rachel Marsh

I can certainly see God Grace working in & through you. You are blessing to me...while I have not had a loss of a spouse...years in infertility have left me grieving as well. You have show how to better persevere and know that God is Good...all the time..All the time God is Good.

May you continue to feel his Grace and love :)


Beautifully put, Julie. Hugest hugs to you and may the God of grace and love fill you each and every day with strength and joy and a peace that surpasses all understanding when the going gets a bit touch.

Colleen Gurgul
