I am working on the opportunity to make changes and discovered a scripture from Deuteronomy 30:16 that I will use as my devotional mantra as I explore this 52 word sentence until May 29, 2018. This will be the completion of my (72 ) 100 word blog journal that I chose as a a goal before my #73. “In that I command thee this day to love thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.”
For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Isaiah 41:13 KJV
Day 11/ 14/17 is an experience day where I spent my afternoon sitting in the Doctor’s office and noting the events of the past month. My husband had been diagnosed with a acute onset of Kidney disease and we had an emergency follow up visit. I was very distraught as I picked up medicines before going home. This is when our truck was rear ended and my day was filled waiting an hour on the police. My son took a picture of the damages to the cars and then I began my praise to God that no one was injured and we were able to drive away. I believe seeing this picture of a wrecked car and being able to tell the story is proof that even in my exits of life’s journey and crashes, I still owe a God a hallelujah and a Thank The Lord for protection. I give God the glory for another day and miracle.
It is now the early hours of the morning and I just listened to an inspiring speaker say that “We all have and will have our ups and downs.” I just got in the bed to practice falling asleep and discovered it was not the time or place. I moved to my blog that is dedicated to my GirlMic Leslie. The butterflies carry some of the names who are prayer intercessors and I said I would count them as others count sheep. I have set a 03::00 goal to go again to bed but I thought it would be a good time to count the people who are helping me get through another day. I decided to double my words of thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for the opportunity of another day to don my wings.
The definition I have chosen is, “ruminate is Figurative. to think or ponder; meditate; reflect.” Today I experienced a muted moment of prayer as I listened to a group of prayer warriors give praise reports and prayer requests. I have chosen to make this observation in response to the prompt: ruminate. I am working to […]
On New Year’s eve, our Church had a “Ceremony of Remembrance and Healing.” I do not feel like I was completely able to participate because I was not feeling well. I chose this as my first 2017 writing because I see many things written about the joy and grace connection of remembering. I thought it might help others if they felt the grief of not having someone present. I am remembering my GirlMic Leslie as I light my candles and speak about her love for family. “Praise the LORD O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.”
In my quest to write today as I prepare to attend another daughter’s transition and comfort another mother, I pause to honor the love of a mother. It has been a year and 24 days since my #GirlMic took flight and it was another sleepless night as I imagined the pain of this mother preparing for her final earth goodbyes. This week has been an up and down travel week as I put prayer in place for those who hurt. I joined the “Legacy Connection” as I continue to pursue wisdom. We are all in position and a place of grace.
