February 6, 2018Just came across this tonigtht. It's ... rigtht on. Listen ... pay attention. Join "the movement." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IX46xUQ4LecFebruary 14, 2018Heard news that would distress me .... IF I didn't have security in Our Father ... and remembered that "not a sparrow falls ... " Mom is in danger of being sent back to the lesser facility ... than she needs. Doctors, PT's, Social Workers, OT's ... and countless others agree that this is NOT what should happen. Unfortunately ... POA ... in "another's" hands could dictate her move. I'm in touch with many this day to attempt a "stay" until my Guardianship is secured. So ... Our Father calmed my heart this day on the mountain. Now I sit by my fire ... worshipping ... and I ... wait. Just found this on YouTube (my current favorite "house" of worship) ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5okOEqsKRbo. I hope you can enjoy ... and pray with me ... for everything good ... and nothing but ... the real thing.February 15, 2018Worshipping tonight with primarily ... Jonathan & Melissa Helser. Mostly lyric videos. New finds every day ... if you search to see ... who is proclaiming the TRUTH ... and claiming the VICTORY. Even in the midst of unspeakable tragedy around the globe. I know it's hard to understand ... or stomach at times ... but NOTHING happens outside of Our Father's Sovereign Will. What we have to do brothers and sisters ... is focus on HIM. Don't focus on all the "bad news." Focus on the "Good News." It's glorious ... and HE'S drawing us HOME. Believe it. Amen!February 15, 2018Amazing thread with Jonathan and Mellisa Helser. Still listening ... and worshipping. OK ... so now here's a link as I head up to bed for the night: https://www.google.com/search?q=jonathan+%26+melissa+helser+beautiful+surrender&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS777US777&oq=Jonathan+%26+Mel&aqs=chrome.2.0j69i57j0l4.18379j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
If you have time ... keep following this blessed son and daughter. It's been fun and encouraging for me this night. February 19, 2018This morning's walk up the mountain was typically refreshing for body, mind and soul. I found myself reciting the 23rd Psalm! I'm not the kind of person who has spent much time memorizing Scripture so I was amazed at how much of that Psalm I remembered. In High School and College I didn't like to memorize anything. I always wanted to know what was going on "behind" the answers. I remember one Final Exam in Chemistry. One question required us to deduce the answer through a series of formula's and such. I breezed through the whole exam except for that one question and it was worth 8 points of the total score. I spent the last 20 to 30 minutes of the exam time period struggling with it but by alloted time I had reached a conclusion and the answer. Once I got the graded test back I had been given 1 point credit ... for having the right answer. The other 7 points were not awarded me because the Professor couldn't follow my deductive reasoning. I think, in a way, that was the beginning of the end for my "formal" education. I love to try to figure out how things work ... and maybe even more ... why they work. As for understanding Our Father ... I don't know much about how He works ... but I'm learning more and more every day ... about why ... He works! And that's pretty simple ... it's all about LOVE.February 19, 2018
Just talked with Mom. She's not happy being back at Cardinal Retirement Village in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. But ... Dick who has POA took her back there. Her care there is insufficient .... which most everyone recognizes including her last two Doctors. I assured her that I'm working to get her better care. She said "I know" ... and "thank you." I said that I'm going to have to deal with Dick's lawyer ... but ... I'll do it. So anyway ... this is life here ... for now ... as the Kingdom decends to meet us, to greet us ... to raise us. So .... music ... as usual lifts me and I found this fun guitar jam tonight ... in the midst ... : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5o4l2qaybI Hope you enjoy brothers and sisters.
February 19, 2018I love the communication in this take. Especially Keith's. Just have to say. I say again ... music will usher us in ..............February 19, 2018
One more for tonight. I of course I absolutely love The Eagles take on this one ... but this was fun to hear this night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVzsDA08Tvk
Ok ... nighty nite!
February 19, 2018Oops ... one last great find for tonight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcOT_gSXIA0March 2, 2018I've been thinking alot lately about what I'll call ... the ebb and flow of the Holy Spirit. It does make sense ... that He would ... more or less ... pulsate. We want Him to flow ... constantly ... but He doesn't. God seems to exhale ... then inhale ... His Spirit within us. It's mysterious. We are "filled" ... then we hunger and thirst. Our God is an awesome God ... that is for sure. He is drawing us to Himself in a "dance" of undying love. He is strengthening us in this dance He orchestrates. So ... we gather ... together and tell tales of our position in "the dance." We encourage one another by those "confessions." Let us hold fast to the Hope of His promises. It's Ok to be silent in the "ebb" ... and dance with abandon in the "flow." Do not fear the world ... He has overcome ... and we ... are HIS.
