On March 1, 1981, preacher and Bible commentator D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones lay on his deathbed. From 1939 to 1968, he had served as the pastor of Londons Westminster Chapel. Now at the end of his life, Lloyd-Jones had lost the ability to speak. Indicating that he did not want any more prayers for his recovery, he wrote on a piece of paper: Do not hold me back from glory.
Because life is precious, it can be hard to let our loved ones go when the time comes for them to depart this earth and go to heaven. And yet God has set a time when He plans to call us home. Psalm 116:15 tells us, Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.
When Paul saw that death was near, he was encouraged by what awaited him in heaven: Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing (2 Tim. 4:8).
No matter where Christians are in lifes journey, their ultimate destination is to be with Christ, which is far better (Phil. 1:23). This should give us confidence in facing lifes challenges and comfort when other believers leave us for that glorious home Christ has prepared.
Read: 1 Corinthians 12:14-26
Aww..Thank you, (((dear Kitty))), for the sweet kitty hugs and good wishes.

Happy Dogurday-Caturday, Meg!
No sun here, but also not cold so that is good!
My doggies are napping.
This is why some of us have lost (temporarily, I hope) some of our graphics out of Fotki. This was in their blog.....
“Why some of your photos are not being displayed...
Dear Fotkins, We know that many of you wrote to us about photos not being displayed. Here is the situation: As you all know, at the end of October Hurricane Sandy struck heart of New York City. Estimated losses, due to damage and business interruption, are estimated at $66 billion, which would make it the second-costliest Atlantic hurricane, behind only Hurricane Katrina. Many data centers in New York were flooded, and they still are not operational. Our data center was hit but only partially. It worked on generators for a while, but it was on. All your photos and videos are safe. Because of economic reasons we were forced to partially move our servers out. We are moving them to a new data center. We took down most of old servers, where mostly older photos and videos were stored. Please don’t panic! We are trying to bring the offline servers back online in a month or so. We will keep you updated as we are work on finding a new home for them. You, your family and friends are still able to enjoy your recently uploaded photos and videos and most of the old ones. We know you miss your older photos but they will return! Now is the season to make and capture lots of new memories! Late, but not too late, the whole Fotki team wants to wish you a wonderful year 2013! May it be filled with joy and successes! Always Yours, Fotki Team”
So what is TinyPic’s Excuse?
Are they having problems, too? I started to change over to them once, but a friend had so much trouble, I decided it wasn’t worth it. LOL!
Well it may be MY fault.
I have over 18,000 photos stored there.
Yep. That’s an 18, a comma, and THREE ZEROS.
That’s a LOT of pictures! I don’t even know how many I have on Fotki. I need to weed them out, but keep thinking “oh, I might use this”. Famous last words of a pack rat! :)
Every time I remove a pic, I regret it.
Me, too. I always need it the very next week. LOL!
I just want my stuff back! Hope this move doesn’t take too long!
I use Tinypic only and really, I seldom have any trouble. I am very happy with using it. Now if I had the energy and get up to go get something to post. Had some errands and took one nap so far....LOL! Not sure I will get to posting or not.....its just one of those days!
Kitties and puppies like dangly stuff! :)
I haven’t had too much trouble with it lately, but every time I try to change pics, I get the MAC “Spinning Pinwheel of Death” (like the hourglass on a PC)
I love that one, Luv. Kitties will do it if it hangs down just right and its in the mood for mischievousness (sp)!
My little monsters seem to ALWAYS be up for some mischievousness! LOL! They are giving me ulcers! (Just kidding, but they do wear me out! :) )
I’ve been there, done that, many times in my lifetime. It was kitties and/or dogs with us all the time. The kids always wanted animals around and we tried to be good parents....LOL! The kids always promised they would help with everything....you know the pitch. I was always the one who did it all. Kids just aren’t going to take on that big responsibility so Mom’s always do. But I did love all the animals we ever had and cried my eyes out when they passed away. Its hard to go through. When my last Sheltie died, I cried forever and said then “I’m never going to love another animal as it tears my heart out when they go. And I haven’t had anymore.
For one thing, hubby passed away and he did help with some things and I guess I just don’t want any responsibility except myself. Guess thats the sign of getting older.
Pleeeeeease don’t be so much “help”! :)
Isn’t it wonderful and fun what we can find on the internet? There’s hardly nothing we can’t find if we just look. Guess thats why we enjoy it so much!!
I swore that,too, afterlosing my last little sweetheart, but then these kittens came along....
There are days I’d give ‘em back. LOL!
Where did your little kittens come from? If I did get another animal, it would probably be a cat. I love both but think the cat is easier to manage (sometimes)! I’m not really looking for one but if a cute little kitty showed up at my door, I would be torn to keep it. Guess I will leave it to that now. In other words, I’m not looking for one. My son has always had cats. He has a really cute solid black one now. Seems all his cats have been black.
I have a friend...or she WAS a friend LOL.....who had 6 kittens and she posted a picture of these 2 on Facebook. Wellllll, they were so cute!
And really, it’s better I got both of them. They entertain and play with each other instead of demanding my 100% attention.
I’ll be glad when they are older and lazy, though.
If you find/get one, get a fixed adult. They aren’t so hard to deal with. Take it from me! :)
Luv, when my cat had a litter of five, I fell in love with each one of them. I can’t have a cat now, because my SIL and Granddaughter are allergic to cats. :(
But - to entertain the kittens, I went to the fabric store, and got several yards of heavy elastic thread. I attached a pompom to one end, and attached the other end to the ceiling (yes, with a nail)!
I kept the pompom just high enough that they would have to jump a little bit to hit it - and it would go flying all over the room. It entertained them for hours!
I cried, when I found good homes for each of them....
We had a totally awesome protest today in Buffalo. Estimated crowd or 2500 to 3000. I am going to post links to pictures that are just now starting to come in. It was by far the biggest and best event I have ever been a part of organizing. I was the MC and had a great time! Way to go WNY PATRIOTS...
There is more and even more on the face book page.
LOL! I am almost tempted to try that, but anywhere it flew it would hit something. :)
Another late night post from DD.
May Our Lord’s Day bring a closeness to Him.
May each and everyone here at Amy’s Place honor Him on this Blessed Lord’s Day. And may each day bring a closeness to Him throughout the week.
I ask prayers of comfort as I deal with lumbar issues. It’s an on-going thing for several years, but some days are worse than others, depending on my activities.
Rejoice In The LORD as Sunday approaches. May each honor Him each day with prayers and thanksgivings each and every day.
Praise The LORD!!!
My prayers for your lumbar issues, dearest DD, and prayers for everyone here who’s in need. Praise God for His abundant blessings, including new beautiful, blessed arrivals!
Happy and Blessed Lord’s Day, sweet FRiends!
Good Morning, Meg!
Have a Blessed Sunday!
Good Morning, ML..Sunday Blessings
I have company..I’ll check back later this afternoon.
I truly enjoyed your post, Dave. Thank you so much for your sweet and meaningful words on this Lord’s Day. May God bless you and your lovely family.
What a darling post, Onyx! Its so good to see you here on Amy’s Place. Wishing you a blessed Sunday. Hope you’ll come back soon and often!! ((((HUGS))))
Hello Meg, I hope you enjoy your company (and I hope you don’t have to cook)...LOL! There’s too many places to send out for food these days, which gives you free time to enjoy your company! Have a wonderful day and a blessed Sunday!
Hello Mary Lou, Wishing you a lovely day and a blessed Sunday. (((HUGS)))
This is a very pretty graphic for a lovely Sunday. Thank you, Meg.
