Just checking in this week with a Status Update: The Summer Intensive Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) Program at Tampa General Hospital, Tampa, FL, reached the halfway mark this week! Time is flying and I am having fun indeed. This experience is life alternating for me. I look forward to sharing in the near future.
My apologies I have not been able to post consistently during this time but hope to be back on track in the fall, September, 2017.
In the meantime, hope all is well, everyone is having a good summer … make sure you take some down time. Thanks to all of you for your prayers and encouragement.
Here’s a few songs, that I hope provide some inspiration, comfort and meditative reflections:

Reminder AND/OR for those of you just joining us either by contacting me or I personally added you: The purpose of Fast Wednesdays is to draw near to God on this specific day of the week fasting and praying in whatever manner the Holy Spirit is leading you as sisters in Christ…some have fasted from social media, coffee, or observed a traditional fast with no eating from sunrise to sunset with only liquids for the day, no deserts, etc. I know many of us for various reasons participate every week but in different manners. This has still been beneficial and the sisterhood continues to grow!
The key ingredient is that we are doing this together as sisters, of all ages, in the Lord both chronologically and spiritually in accordance to: A God-Filled Life Titus 2:3-5 “Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don’t want anyone looking down on God’s Message because of their behavior.” Note: Please share Fast Wednesdays with your friends and/or send me names to add to the distribution list. For now, I will post in three places: email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Facebook (Debra Fuller Ellis) and blog.
