Hi Jute it's so good to see you here. Hope all is well with you and yours.
I lost my cousin on Saturday to cancer. She was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in July and they said they really couldn't do anything other than to make her as comfortable as possible since it had progressed so much by the time they found it. She passed peacefully at home with all of her family (including me) around her. She was only 68 years old.
Now we're all keeping a close eye on my 97 year old aunt (her mother) because she has a failing heart, and anything that might set her off could cause her major problems. She's now under hospice care like her daughter was. She's still as sharp as a tack but her physical health is really starting to fail. She's had to endure so much over the past year. First her eldest son died in August 2012 and now her daughter is gone. She only has 1 son left. He's my age. He's the one I go to Florida with in March.
I'm doing fine health wise with good reports from the doctor. Hope Wayne is doing well. Give him my best. You take care, and as I said earlier it's good to see you here posting.
God bless.
Iím sorry to hear about your cousin RA. That is a nasty disease. But we both know that God knew about it before it even happened. I think you take comfort in that too my Brother.

Experiencing God Day By Day:

The Lord Hears

Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, And the LORD listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the LORD And who meditate on His name.(Malachi 3:16)
*
God has designed His kingdom so that Christians with kindred spirits join together. It is exciting when you find another Christian who shares the same concerns and burdens that you do! Often, God will graciously bring another believer alongside you who will undergird you in the work and concerns God has placed on your heart. God releases a powerful dimension of His presence to His children when they unite in heart and mind regarding His kingdom. The Bible says that when two or more Christians meet and reverently discuss matters concerning the Lord, God is pleased to listen to them and to respond to their concerns. When two or three believers agree in prayer, God chooses to respond to their unity by making His powerful presence known in their midst (Matt. 18:19Ė20). When two people walked together and discussed the confusing events of Christís crucifixion, Jesus joined them and helped them understand the events of their day (Luke 24:13Ė32).
*
If you are carrying concerns about your family or your church or your friends, ask God to bring like-minded believers around you to share the burden with you in conversation and in prayer. Donít attempt to bear your load of cares on your own. You may pray about them, but you will miss the blessing of uniting together with a group of believers who join together to intercede for one another and to enjoy Godís presence. Everything God has woven into the fabric of His kingdom promotes interdependence, not individualism. As you face your concerns, deliberately seek out other believers with whom you can stand and share your load.

I hear you. But you say God, and the Lord, and never tell us which one.

So many gods, so little time.

So really, I have to bear my own load on my own.

I can do it.

Hey HFN

Good to see you

That was a good read. I don't normally see much from Malachi in studies. I really like it. We often think about fellowship it seems as something we choose to engage in and sometimes lose sight of the fact that God will put people in our lives and in our path for a reason

Hope all is well my friend

(T) Peace

Malala - 14 year old girl (at the time) who was shot by the Taliban and survived for speaking out for education for women and against the Taliban bombing and leveling schools. 2 minute clip on her reaction when asked what her reaction was when she found out she was targeted by the Taliban. From the mouths of babes.

Today's Prayer

Dear God, There are so many things I can do...or not do. I can sit and do nothing or I can attempt to do many things. Please show me, Lord, what will you have me to do? I am open to your leading and willing for You to work through me to accomplish Your will. Whether my purpose is to accomplish something small or great, I know that it is important to the work of your kingdom and your plan for my life. Guide and direct me, please. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

Prime time with God

When some quotes Malachi & Luke, you still ask "Which god"?????

Is it that hard to answer for yourself?

.. my perception differs; I view it as a rhetorical question. When someone asks, "You don't want to go to hell do you?" they are inferring that a person is going to hell; it's a statement, not a question. While atheists do not believe in hell, the implication is obvious - non-believers will go to hell ..
.. another example of this metaphor would be my asking someone, "Are you stupid, uneducated or both?" The implication is obvious - I think the person is stupid and uneducated ..

.. just ring the dinner bell and be sure to serve lotsa veggies ..


I am ringing my bell hoping for breakfast to be brought in by the maid---- but you guessed it--- I am NOT responding to the bell.
I ended up not cooking a 'real dinner' as my pump on my well went kaplooie.... and I didn't want to cook chicken with out having enough water to wash up after touching raw chicken. I am experiencing the rains when it pours phenon~ LOL--

Yes- I can see how you would have your perspective regarding'the' question--- but maybe it will help you to know--that even though the technique 'they' are using sounds like they HOPE ya' go there... most are really asking because they hop ya' don't. The true Christ follower- hopes that they have planted that little seed which will bear fruit into your life (or veggies).

Your metaphore is not quite the same- it sounds more like "your as dumb as a box of hammers" instead of the ever nicer "hey- aren't you glad you're not in the hammer box(c; *wink*
