Share Four Somethings is a monthly link-up that [Heather] started back in 2018. The concept is to share the same four topics every month as a way to look back and recap your month. The link-up opens on the 4th Saturday of every month and stays open for one week. The topics for 2022 are Something Loved, Something Gleaned, Something Braved/Saved, and Something Achieved. If you want to learn a little more about the topics, we will be writing about in 2022; you can read more about them at Share Four Somethings in 2022.

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Upon these two commandments hang the whole Law and the Prophets.” – Mathew 22:36-40 NASB
If you had told me a few years ago that I would be hiking the rocky trails at Devil’s Lake like a confident mountain goat I would have told you that you were out of your cotton-pickin’ mind.
… gave me an amazing medical team and I am now 180 lbs (81.6 kg) lighter and a whole lot healthier.
Thank You, God for giving me my life back!
Something Braved or Saved
This month I have been able to let go of some things that have been weighing heavily on my heart and mind. I attribute this change to the work of the Holy Spirit and a dear friend who shared truth with me that God spoke to her. My heart has softened in areas where I thought there were permanent calluses.
