I've faced death enough times it would be welcome at this point
I certainly hope you stick around since you soul is gentle and your life has tremendous worth.
WELLLLLLL, INTERESTINGLY, this past week I've had some more trustworthy input insist that earlier predictions of my martyrdom were inaccurate and that God had other plans. That would be nice. I've suffered enough the last 3 years of fiery furnaces I think I'd be just as glad to leave the martyrdom to someone else. If God takes me straight out of this life into the next one without physical death, Great.
On the other hand, His Will be done in terms of whatever's best for The KINGDOM AS LONG AS MY SALVATION IS NOT THE LEAST BIT THREATENED! I'd hate to weaken in a torture situation and even think of denying my Lord. I realize His Grace is sufficient.
THANKS TONS FOR YOUR KIND WORDS. Please pray that my ongoing relationships with a list of students and others after I leave will bear much fruit. And that the gift packages and handmade pottery I'm working to get together for them will all come toegether. First I have to get this last set of finals graded and then pack before movers on the 3rd! Wheee. Guess I'd better quit playing hooky on FR!!!
