Editor's Musings

Opening thoughts from the editor's desk.

Sharon Cress is editor of the Journal

Between the covers of this issue you will find a variety of articles from very different perspectives.  Mary Wong addresses the issue of Attitudes. Pastor Don Driver once gave me some good counsel. "The Lord knew' the challenge you would face today, He just didn't know how you would react to it--the choice is yours!" Sage advice from an experienced pastor to a ministry wife who needed reminding! Our attitudes in many ways determine our happiness.

Father's Day approaches and Val Smetheram from Australia Rives honor to her father while Clotilde Georges, Shepherdess Coordinator from France, shares her personal life story. Sharoda Mahapure's poignant story of Guddi shakes each of us into the reality of The heartbreak in this world. Laurel Raethel give hope to that age-old misery of moving parsonages and Priscilla Adonis explores the inner beauty of Queen Esther.

Marvbeth Gessele, stirs us to really live in joy each day and shares her secrets for that success, while Paula Taylor's sensible approach for not trying to be superwoman and do everything is right on target.

As you turn these pages, it will be my prayer that you will be blessed and nurtured and find a closer relationship with Jesus.
