That is One of my Very Favorite Poems that has Brought Comfort to my Heart over the Years, through Several Fiery Trials.
Brother Cowper Suffered Much over his Life, but is Now in Eternal Peace and Joy with his Loving Savior and King.

God Bless you for Posting that Beautiful Poem, Dear Geologist.

(((((A Wonderful Friday to you)))))

Oh my, the realization of watching that hibiscus open and close. Life does go so fast, we need to take the time to smell the flowers. We sometimes say “Tomorrow, we’ll do that” and then tomorrow may not come. We all know that now by the experience you and your friends went through. I know its hard for you, yorkie. It was hard for all of us but the situation was unbearable for you. You have done very well and I know the Lord watches over you, yorkie.

Hope you’re doing better daily. I still am praying for you every day of my life, friend.

I wonder so much about what happened to Billie. She just disappeared and thats just not normal without telling some of us something. I sure hope nothing happened to her. Her husband may not have known how to get in touch with Amy’s Place. There could be a possibility he may not be around either. The not knowing gives me goose bumps sometimes.

StLouie says she has read his email but has not responded. I sent her email but have hear nothing.

I know that Amy’s Place takes a lot of time but it would be wonderful if she would just come and say hello to everyone.

INDEED, YORKIE,

I diligently try and give what flowers I can . . . literally and otherwise . . .

to the living.

Life is short . . . and we are too soon old and too late smart . . .

But we CAN Love every day . . . while we have today.

Amy, I assume you got the poetry.

Shine Anyway

March 10, 2012

To be honest, I wasn’t happy to be making another trip to the store. For the previous 4 weeks, my wife and I had been trying to get a refund for a bad refrigerator. As I spoke with the manager—again—it seemed that we were heading down another dead-end road. As we talked, I wondered if we would ever get our money back, but I tried to be gracious.

At one point the manager said, “By now, customers are usually yelling at me, but you’ve been so patient.” Then he said, “Let’s try something else.” He asked me some questions and punched some numbers into a cash register. After a short delay—and some stories about irate customers—the machine spit out a receipt showing a refund! Our appliance nightmare was over. “Thanks for being so good to work with,” he said as we parted ways.

While I think being nice when I didn’t feel nice helped in this process, getting refunds is not why we should show kindness to others. The real reason is that as Christians we are to reflect the light of Jesus (Eph. 5:8) on everyone—whether it’s an irate neighbor, a bumbling waiter, or a department store manager. Our speech and behavior are to be a positive witness (Eph. 4:29-32; Col. 4:6). Are you facing a conflict? Let Jesus’ light shine through.

Read: Ephesians 5:1-10

Bible in a Year:
Judges 13-15

Sorry to be absent so much but like jaycee I am still battling health issues. Seems no sooner I get one half way fixed another pops up, or their dratted diets conflicting for cholesterol and low sodium screw up my Hypothyroid.

Hope it goes well with you jaycee. I get my MRI’s on Thursday, then back to the neurosurgeon on the 26th. He is going from the T’s down thru the Lumbar’s.

Like you the pain is so bad the lore tabs do NOT work, neither did PT, which made it worse, nor the nerve blocks which did the same. Had 4 of them only 1 of the cervical ones worked for 3 months. Only thing that does is a heating pad. BUT that ties you to home. So I buy those super size Hot Hands in the sporting depart of Walmart and stuff them in a well padded set of sewed together pot holders. They get up to 160 degrees so you have to pad them. The little ones do not get as hot, but do not last as long. You get 18 hrs of heat out of the big ones and 10 hrs out of the hand size ones. If they cool off to soon, just take them out and shake them in the air and they will reactivate. They are the only way I stay mobile.

This is an interactive view of your spine, just move your mouse over it and it will tell you what area of your body that nerve bundle controls.

In this world there are many forces attempting to douse our light,
winds of war and unrest in the nation,

predictions of failure, and disaster, at every turn,

refusal of our leaders to respond to the people
wanting to serve the Constitution of America,

pouring cold water on the ideas of the Conservative Republican Party.

Fomenting class warfare purposely!

Many are the attacks of the enemy.

Let us ever be steadfast and strong in our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Cats Sleep Anywhere

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open draw, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.

Eleanor Farjeon (1881 - 1965)

Gail, you will be hearing from me as soon as I'm able to
be on here. I've suffered bad today but am thankful to
be alive anyway. I thank you so much for writing and the
spinal graphic will certainly be studied more by me very
soon. I can tell it explains a lot for me. I'm
sorry that you suffer so much but if anyone can
understand, I sure can with what I've been experiencing
these past months. ((((HUGS))))

Happy Caturday to you, DD!

Prayers you are feeling well.

I do believe postponement of any jury duty would absolutely be in order! :)

I don't know how the rotation is down there but up here if you request a postponement they summons you again, usually, in 3 months. But then, we have so few people for them to choose from.
