It's been said before on this blog:
time just jumps up and sneaks off!!
I can't believe I haven't posted for 9 days. Helllooooooo??? Hope some of my blog-buddies still remember my address!
I don't have an excuse. No traveling. No hospitalizations. No more broken bones.
Just the routine amount of restless nights, doctor's appointments, and visitors.
I can happily report that I've taken advantage of a new"praying chair." During this time that First Born daughter wears a boot protecting the broken bone on her left foot, I go to workout alone and at an unusually quiet time at the wellness center pool.
I've memorized my water routine so as my body did its exercise, I was lost in conversation with my Holy Father. I walked forward, backward, left side, right side, run-in-place and called you by name. Repeat and more names. Up and down. Family, friends, clergy, acquaintances, and neighbors. Up and back and other names. My heart was glad.
Remember how often Paul listed the names of other followers--even when he was in prison? Remember how Moses begged God's forgiveness for the unruly and whining desert dwellers? And even (or especially ??) Jesus went out to search for his brothers and siters who just didn't "get it." I continue to give thanks that He searched for me!
Somehow, I'm convinced that my "closet" is wherever I am when I call on the Name of the Lord. The pool was nice!
Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:13-14
One of my prayers is that all of us will be in an attitude of prayer as we exercise our American right to vote. If you have not voted, there is still time to pray for guidance and let your voice be heart. And, in this free nation, Election Day (Tuesday, November 2 this year) is a special day to fly the American flag.
Because He First Loved Me.
