Ready For Glory

January 19, 2013

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 London’s 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 life’s journey, their ultimate destination is to “be with Christ, which is far better” (Phil. 1:23). This should give us confidence in facing life’s challenges and comfort when other believers leave us for that glorious home Christ has prepared.

The glories of heaven await
All those who believe in God’s Son;
The trials of this life will fade
When we see the Heavenly One. —Sper
Life’s greatest joy is the sure hope of heaven.

Read: 1 Corinthians 12:14-26

But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it. —1 Corinthians 12:24
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 43-45; Matthew 12:24-50

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”

HAPPY CATURDAY TO AMY’S PLACE!



The Naming Of Cats

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
First of all, there's the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey--
All of them sensible everyday names.
There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter--
But all of them sensible everyday names.
But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular,
A name that's peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?
Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum-
Names that never belong to more than one cat.
But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover--
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name.


a poem by T S Eliot









Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

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.

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....

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...

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!!!
