Marriage is challenging enough and adding a chronic illness adds a whole new dimension. Let’s have the words that we say to each other become earworms of affirmation and love.

We witnessed the whisper of God being shared from within our place of suffering. He helped us live out the Scripture from those years ago.
I relish the gift of finding a personal letter in my mailbox, especially on hard days. Written words have a unique capacity to convey God’s grace (as described in Chronic Joy’s printable resource, #PenToPaper). I vividly recall a particular afternoon when the Lord used a simple note card to bring me much-needed hope.
Daily life with chronic illness can be extremely stressful. However, it’s only fitting (and scriptural) that we as believers develop and nurture a spirit of hope and optimism about the future. I find that laughter is a key ingredient in helping me hold onto that spirit.
