He KNOWS my name...

Because He has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. Psalms 91:14-15 “I’m tired, so tired, so exhausted and I want someone to take my place…” Those were the words of my little lady friend that I visit in the Nursing home. She said this with her eyes closed while lying in bed. She then murmured that she was in a lot of pain. I know this lady and the way that she “controls” her suffering is to “get quiet before the Lord” as she calls it. Through her years of great success as well as much suffering, she once told me that when times get really rough, she learned to hide in the Lord, to take a silent stand in her spirit and allow Him to speak to her.

I am learning to really enjoy the things I like doing.  I believe that each of us have a special gift, hobby, talent if you will and God gave it to us so that we can have "rest" for our souls. For instance I L

" To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven..." Ecclesiates 3:1 It's comin'...it's comin'!!!!!!!!!! We've had only little hints of it over the past week, but I can feel it in the air! After all the snow that we had over the winter, I think that there are lots of us chomping at the bit to get on with the next season. I have begun to look at my spring decorations with longing. Going in the garage looking in the bin of silk flowers and even in the large drawer in the dining room where I keep my ceramic eggs and rabbits in an array of pastel colors. I promise that they will soon be released to come out soon. After the sometimes barreness of winter, there is something so special about the renewal of spring. It is so fitting that the celebration of Christ's resurrection would come during spring. His resurrection was evidence that there IS renewal. It proves that we CAN have a new life, both here on earth and in heaven
