Time to Ponder


All over the world there are clocks ticking and people learning to tell the time…little ones, especially.

I have written a few time posts because I find the topic fascinating. Today I suggest you spend some of your time thinking about time and its many connotations.

No matter what time it is in your part of the world there is always time to ponder. Happy Saturday.

All It Takes


There were times in my life when I desperately called upon the Holy Spirit to be my comfort and strength. He never failed me and He will never fail you. All it takes is to ask. Happy Sunday.

 

 

 

 

Make Every Day Count


The following is something I gleaned online:

If you live to age ninety, how many days do you have left?

It is a finite number, and one day you will reach that last day. Remain conscious of the value of every single day.

Ask yourself every morning, “What can I do to make today count?” Happy Saturday.

There Are No Words


Yesterday I learned of the death of twenty-seven-year-old Jona Kay who died in a car accident on May 7th. Jona is the granddaughter of Butch and Bonnie Dean, fellow bloggers and lovely people.

In their own words “There Are No Words” to describe the pain and anguish this family is suffering.

No, there are no words, but each of us can find words of prayer for God’s peace and comfort for Bonnie and Butch and all of Jona’s family.

Thank you for helping to ease their pain.

Healing Words


Having been ill for a couple of weeks, I have received many words of prayer, encouragement, upliftment, inspiration, and just plain love.

Among the many that came my way are these: “I was so surprised and sorry to hear how ill you are. You know we are all praying for you to be completely well. I never realized how much I would miss not seeing or hearing from you.”

Healing words from a caring friend on my road to recovery…God’s love in action. “‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:40 Happy Sunday.

Batting A Thousand


Batting a thousand is basically a term in baseball where a player will hit the ball every time he/she comes to bat. It may also mean success in an endeavor when a goal is reached.

When blogging became my hobby in 2014 it was a means of promoting my soon-to-be-published book, My Precious Life. It was not my intention to continue blogging once the book was launched. However, I seemed to be ensconced in this writing habit and when the number of posts began creeping past the eight-hundred mark, it became my goal to reach a thousand.

This is it…my one-thousandth post on My Precious Life, the Blog.

It has been a fun journey and I have met many blogging friends along the way. Is there another thousand posts in me? Only time will tell, but now I know what it feels like to bat a thousand.

Fear No Evil


There was a recent incident in my life which could have caused me fear and the need for protection. I felt neither. Instead, I made a conscious decision to support the person involved and later prayed for confirmation that the right decision had been made. Within minutes a flock of five blue jays appeared in my yard. That seemed strange because I rarely see a blue jay. I googled that bird and read:

This bird may symbolize protection and fearlessness. If blue jays appear in your life you will feel safe and protected.

Confirmation received with thanks. Happy Sunday.
