Well, I’ve been away for a while. Saturday I thought I was locked out of my blog and thought it would have to be retired. Then I remembered (today) that I had deleted my history so would have to bring up a sign in page. So, here I am.
I am ashamed to say that I have allowed the pressures and emotional strain to cause me to take a break from just about everything. I still prayed and went to church, but neglected Bible reading, writing, tweeting, etc. Haven’t looked at email in days. Catching up isn’t going to be easy.
Thanks to all of you who have been praying for my sweet mother-in-law. She is still in the hospital. Her wound from surgery began seeping this past week and they had to do surgery again. Then they found some other problems. The oldest daughter has been here 3 times (from TN) in five weeks. She will leave again this Friday to go home. Mom seems to be hanging on, but barely. Please continue to pray.
I wandered in the desert a while,
Seems I forgot how to smile.
Through the dusty arid air,
Scripture: I found my way there.
A cool drink of fresh water
To soothe my thirsty soul,
Reminded me in Psalm One
Of what must be done:
To feast on God’s word,
Heed what is heard,
Then with strength renewed,
I’d blossom anew.
