“For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”” 1 Peter 3:10-12 ESV
“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4 NASB
“Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4 AMP

Estate Planning, long-term care insurance, and retirement planning have been on my mind since my mid-40s!
Working as a Psychologist at long-term care facilities and watching my elderly parents struggle with chronic medical conditions made me think of my own estate planning a decade ago.
I purchased long-term care insurance in my early 40s yet I haven’t revised my living will since I remarried. The struggle is real.
It is an ongoing struggle to get all of our affairs in order… who wants to think about post-retirement years when you are not even a senior as of yet?!
My dad died unexpectedly and there was no living will. It was a complete mess. Tension was high among family members. Controversial discussions were held. At the end of the day, I was hurt, betrayed, disappointed and completely stressed out and emotionally spent.
This is the reason I recently finalized my decision on moving into a life care retirement community in two years.
I want to be R-E-A-D-Y and live life abundantly, courageously and to the fullest without any reservation or concerns about leaving any troubles behind once the Lord calls me home.
I want to leave a legacy, unforgettable memories and loving relationships instead.
