Meet Barb

Hey there!
I’m so glad you stopped by!
For those of you
who don’t know me,
I am looking forward
to getting to know you!

I’m excited about
deepening existing friendships,
as well as
developing new friendships!

 I love people.
I love meeting new people.
I love interacting with people.
Even though it will be friendships,
conversations,
tears shed, prayers prayed, and blessings,
shared via the Internet,
I truly believe that the Lord
will make it as if we are
sitting side by side,
sharing our concerns,
trials, God’s goodness,
praying one for another,
as if no time or space
was between us at all!

My desire is that ALL
which is written
would bring honor and glory
to my Saviour.

That every word would bring
joy, peace and encouragement
to someone who may be discouraged
by an illness or facing any kind of trial.

That whomever finds themselves
on this site would find
a place of rest,
a balm for their soul,
a laugh here or there,
blessed and challenged
from God’s Word.
And most of all,
those who don’t know
Jesus as their Saviour,
would come to know Him!

 The title for this site,
“Casting Your Care”
is based upon
1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.”
This has become one of my “go to” verses.
Because this verse reminds me that the Lord
cares for me and what is going on with me
and that I can cast
ANYTHING and EVERYTHING upon Him.

Okay now that I told you ALL about the site
and my goals for the site,
I guess for those of you
who don’t know who I am,
I should at least tell you that my name is
Barb Camp.

I am married to the love of my life, Brian.
This year we'll celebrate
our thirty-fifth wedding anniversary!

Besides my relationship with Jesus,
Brian is my closest friend.
He's my “soul mate", my guy, my man!

I suffer from a chronic illness known as IH
(Intracranial Hypertension).
IH is a condition in which your body
acts like it has a brain tumor
but there is not one present.

Yes, very strange
and the symptoms are very strange as well!
I can feel “decent” one day
and the next day
I'm flat out in bed all day.

I've been dealing with this since 2002.
There is no cure.
I'm being treated with medications.
At this point,
we are not sure
what the future holds
concerning this illness.

But we are SO THANKFUL
that we do know
THE ONE who holds our future!

And I KNOW
if it were not for this illness,
this site would never
have been born,
and I would not have
the many unique opportunities
the Lord has given to me
to serve Him and others.

Brian and I hold onto the words found in
II Corinthians 12:9
"And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength
is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me."

I post every Wednesday.

Whatever I share
is from my heart
and meant to be a blessing
and an encouragement.

On the home page there is a “prayer request” tab.
Please feel free
to leave me a prayer request.

I would count it a JOY
to pray along with you
concerning anything.

I pray you will enjoy traveling
this journey along side of me!
