Wildly This and That
Well, tomorrow is THE day. Finally we'll have quality carpet installed at Hobbit Cottage. We're nearly finished with the packing of knick-knacks, books and dishes and soon I'll move small furniture to the porch.
I'm trying not to say "I'll be happy when it's Sunday and all the hassle's over with." I've told you not to speak words like those, for it's better to be happy now, in the midst of whatever must be done.
For most of Life, we're in the middle of not-so-wonderful things, rather than on the other side, so why not enjoy it all?
When I return here Sunday or Monday, I'll (hopefully) show you photos. That is, if I can find my camera somewhere inside all these boxes.
I don't often mention the bad/sad national news here, but about the tragic NC church shootings? May it make us all determined to overcome evil with good. May we become more prayerful regarding our nation's wandering, deceived young people.
God, through prayer, changes things.
Not complaining about what's wrong.
Not vilifying our President and his wife on Facebook.
Not forwarding bitter emails.
Not favoriting sarcastic sentences on Twitter.
Not gossiping over coffee and apple crumble pie.
But praying. And loving others into wholeness. And standing in the gap for those who have no anchor.
“Let us never forget to pray. God lives. He is near. He is real. He is not only aware of us but cares for us. He is our Father. He is accessible to all who will seek Him.”
― Gordon B. Hinckley
"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective." ... James 5:16
Surprising news! The Rosamond du Jardin teen novels which I've enjoyed for 40 years are now available in Amazon's Kindle Store. And yes, part of the delight of these stories is holding an ancient copy in your hands. But still, if you've ever wanted to try one, here's your chance to do so for a decent price.
This Spring I've been rereading the Tobey and Midge series (my favorite) and am on #4, The Real Thing. These are perfect for a summer escape.
Just thought I'd mention these delightful books for you who are still young at heart in your reading tastes. :) Find them here where they're conveniently numbered for you.
