Graphic by Billie

Solitude

Solitude is the companionship of the self,
A meaning greater than mere silence.
In the deeply hollows of solitude,
Is a quivering pulse of convalescence.

In the sheer unconsciousness of the moment,
A tear wells in the rim of eye,
And in the sudden realization of the emotion,
Slips from the cheek into oblivion.

A poem spurs from the heart,
Rhythm breaks its ties with rhyme.
Mind slips into the uniformity, momentarily,
When a moment breaks its ties with time.

~Sarvesh Kulkarni

Every time I read the pledge or say it, my eyes start leaking.

Same with listening to Our National Anthem. Praise The Lord for touching my heart the way it does.

Have a CAT Scan scheduled in the early morning hours to check on any cancer showing it’s ugly face again. Appreciate prayers on my and my family’s behalf for total healing.

Forsaken?

November 1, 2012

Do you know which psalm is quoted most often in the New Testament? You may have guessed the familiar and beloved 23rd Psalm, but actually it is Psalm 22. This psalm begins with David’s poignant, heart- breaking words that were quoted by Jesus on the cross, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matt. 27:46; Mark 15:34).

Imagine the situation David must have found himself in that caused him to cry out to God in this way. Notice that he felt forsaken and abandoned: “Why are You so far from helping me?” (Ps. 22:1). He also felt ignored: “O my God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear” (v.2).

Ever been there? Have you ever looked up into the heavens and wondered why it seemed that God had abandoned you, or was ignoring you? Welcome to David’s world. But for every plaintive cry David expresses, there is a characteristic of God mentioned that rescues him from despondency. Through it all, David discovers that God is holy (v.3), trustworthy (vv.4-5), a deliverer and rescuer (vv.8,20-21), and his strength (v.19).

Do you feel forsaken? Seek the Lord. Rehearse His character. And “let your heart rejoice with everlasting joy” (v.26 nlt).

Lord, sometimes I feel as if You don’t care about
my life. When those times come, please remind me
of Your character as You did David. Help me to
lean on You again and know that You are there.
Even when we don’t sense God’s presence,
His loving care is all around us.

Read: Psalm 22:1-8,19-26

Those who seek Him will praise the Lord. Let your heart live forever! —Psalm 22:26
Bible in a Year:
Luke 22-24

I was awake early this morning and said a prayer that the CAT Scan will show you are cancer free. I also asked God to Bless you and your family.

Tho, I have been off-line you have been in my thoughts and prayers.

Have a beautiful day, Dave.

Happy Thursday, Jaycee. Thank you.

You have been in my thoughts and prayers.

I took a nap this morning. This has become a habit.

We take Marissa to the bus stop at 6:45 every morning. If we miss the bus, we can take her to school at 7:30. It was still dark this morning when we dropped her off but there were several others there waiting.

Since she is going to an out of district school, the closest bus stop is about 1 3/4 miles north of us. I’m looking forward to the time change this week-end. It is getting really tough getting up at 5:30 when it feels like the middle of the night.

Wishing you a beautiful Thursday and a wonderful November.

Amy, I think I’ve prayed more over this election than I’ve ever prayed before. Some days I feel good about it and other days, I lose my spirit. I’ve read where some voters click the button for Romney and it comes up Obama. Goodness, can’t we trust anything anymore?? I will be a very sad person if O should win. I hope God knows what is best for this country and will help us out.

I received this via email and decided to share it with y’all.

ONE MINUTE EACH NIGHT—————
During WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every night at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people and peace. This had an amazing effect as bombing stopped.

There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America.

If you would like to participate: each evening at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (8:00 PM Central, 7:00 PM Mountain, 6:00 PM Pacific), stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the up-coming election, and for the revival of Christianity in this great country.

If you know anyone who would like to participate, please pass this along.

Someone said if people really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.

Last night was the first normal bedtime/sleep time I have had in ages..and I slept 8 hours.
