The birds are singing again today.
Today is Sep. 23rd.

Notable:
Lots of crow calling
and I saw a sundog

There was something different about yesterday…

Today:
Silence – no bird song
Same time as yesterday
but today – silence

2 anoles
2 mourning doves

I’m waiting for the storm –
low rumbles of thunder I keep hearing
The clouds are there.

Later:
and there’s the cool,
temperature must have dropped 10 degrees in the last 1/2 hour since I stepped outside (since the rain came)
– the weather keeps calling me outside, unusual skies, unusual clouds, unusual weather, and every time I step out it begins to rain on my head. 🙂

Yesterday (well really Friday) and today

first, Friday (with tears of joy)
Please Lord please.
Why do you have to keep testing my faith?
Testing me?

‘So that you may see the rewards dear child, and learn to trust in Me’ … ‘even unto the end’

Today:
What’s the difference between an epic and a saga?
Is my life an epic or a saga?

Does a saga or an epic have to be about a hero, or heroism?

Rosh Hashana
12:30
Warmth of sun on skin
birds singing
3 ravens fly over

First day in a long while that I started my day with my health feeling almost normal.

‘I want to start my day with God. It makes all things go better.’

A little anole has taken up residence on the porch and is amusing me with its antics.

2:00 pm
The sun is scorching
Yellow ‘flutter-bys’ are everywhere
on the lots of flowers that are everywhere
It’s really quite, almost, idyllic
watching them flutter flower to flower
the peace and beauty of it,
not at the beginning (of spring),
but at the end (of summer)

4:40 pm
The crow calls

“Change, change”

I hear his message.

and it occurs to me… I realize…
‘God has given me strength’

Renewing my faith

I made a very conscious decision to renew my faith after my slump of the other day woke me up.

I began praying for the storm to move… it did… the wrong direction. 😞
So I began praying for God to strip it of its power. God can do it.

Friday….

Prayer time – Chaplet of Divine Mercy with RelevantRadio – 4:00

Prayer for God’s hand over this storm, that He will diminish its power quickly.

Though this storm will pass over Florida, God still offers His protection. God can still protect.
‘ ‘Thy’ will be done.’

With God all things are possible. I went to church last night and prayed. Came home and found this.

with God all things are possible

See that little spot… outside the cone?  West Palm Beach.  That’s where my mother is.

All praise be to God… and praying, that God will strip this storm of its power in the protection of everyone in Florida.

People forget….
‘they have a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof…’

I will not lose my faith.  I will run the race with endurance.  I will persevere to the end.
and always,
‘ ‘Thy‘ will be done’

 

He is mighty to save, and He rewards those who believe… those who praise Him for His mercy and blessings.

My life now revolves around watching the news.

Prayers please for Florida.  My mother is in the direct path of hurricane Irma.  All of Florida it seems is in the direct path of Irma.  No where to run.  No escape.

This message from Marco Rubio:

If you live anywhere in Florida & think you are safe from Hurricane Irma look at this image. The entire state faces the impact of the storm. Southwest Florida, Central Florida & entire East coast of the state need to be ready. This hurricane is unprecedented in power & reach. #HurricaneIrma

hurricane Irma

Holy Spirit is what we need. Now.

Our nation is under siege. Can no one see this?
There are 3 hurricanes our there right at this moment.
Hurricane Harvey just devastated Houston…. Houston, where just recently a so-called ‘artist’ desecrated the faith by submerging a cross (the Christian symbol of God and His Love for us) in his urine.
and the nation is burning as wild fires ravage the northwest.

and this hurricane is coming on the back of a full moon

The United States is burning and under siege of hurricanes… Time for waking up.
(Matthew 24)

 

 

:-( :'(

😦   😥
Ok, here we go again… almost a direct repeat of last year’s hurricane Matthew…
only, last year I prayed and believed hurricane Matthew (Oct. 10) would give a miss…. and it did… I praised God
https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/76591423/posts/4422
https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/76591423/posts/4448
now why am I having such a hard time believing (or even praying) for the same this year?
Oh right, has something to do with what happened on Oct. 25 last year, just 2 weeks after having been spared hurricane Matthew… the very day before my daughter’s 30th birthday…
My faith shaken.
One blessing.
One curse.
and from there a continual slide.
Is this another test…
to see if I will go on believing…
go on praying.

“I assure you: If you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you tell this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will be done. And if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

Last year we were many, praying, fervently.  Where are all the people joined in prayer this year?

Where is my zeal? Where is my fervor? Where is my belief?

 

This time next week so much could be gone.

I don’t think I spoke on here about the break in at my mother’s only a couple of weeks after I’d left her.  😦  (life in a downhill slide – faith being tested)

 

Went outside and watched the moon emerging and then disappearing behind the clouds.

‘nearer my God to thee’

Full moon tonight – Brilliant !

Thoughts today:

1. When you’re young you trust everything;
When you’re old, it seems, you trust nothing.

2. I guess the pot (marijuana) smokers think, ‘What a wonderful world it will be when everyone is mellowed out by weed (marijuana)’.

They don’t see, they just don’t see.
A world can not function without constraints, without structure.
It will flounder, not flourish.

(such blindness!)

 

Oh, I thought of this today…
because we (me) were raised “not to talk about 3 things: money, religion, and politics”
We (a whole generation) grew up not learning about politics (gotta be able to listen to the elders discuss it to learn) and ‘hiding our lights under a bushel basket’ instead of ‘letting them shine’, which has led to the death of religion (God) in our nation.
Yeah, and there’s a whole generation that doesn’t know how to handle money so good either…. 😛
