You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you.~Nehemiah 9:6
Starting on year #8. As I've said so many times before: "Where has the time gone?" I remember very well Ginger being at our house and suggesting to me that we ought to start a blog where people could share inspirational "stuff". How could that have been so many years ago? It seems like maybe last year or the year before. Time is marching on. We are all getting older and we are getting closer and closer to the day when God will decide that it's time for the prophecies to be fulfilled and for time as we know it to come to an end. In a way it's pretty scary, but in another way, it is very exciting. The thing is, we all need to be ready for that day to come. In the meantime, let's continue to share and encourage one another.

Thanks to all of you, we are celebrating seven years of sharing on Spiritual Sundays
I mentioned last week that the number 7 is rather special. That number is used in the Scriptures many times with special significance. Each week has seven days. God rested on the seventh day after creation. So now we are celebrating seven years of sharing here on this blog. Thank you for all the encouragement you have given me all these years. I'm glad I have been able to continue with it. Hopefully this time next year we will be celebrating #8.

Thank you for all the kind comments and wishes on our anniversary. Now we're on our way to #58. We were married in 1958 and next year it will be 58 years. How about that.
I'm happy that so many continue to share on this blog. Another anniversary of the first linking here is coming up the first of August. Seven years. Isn't that a kind of special number? Seven? I think it is.

This weekend my husband and I are celebrating our 57th wedding anniversary. I'm so glad God created both male and female and instituted marriage. Certainly there have been ups and downs in our 57 years together, but I can honestly say that after all these years, our marriage is stronger than ever and we love each other now more than ever. I don't think that is an accident either. God has always been a partner for us and He has blessed us in so many ways.
Last week we had a few less links than usual. I think it was because people here in the U.S. were busy celebrating our Independence Day. Summer is in full swing now too and lots of people are vacationing and spending more time on family outings. I think that is a good thing. Thank you again to everyone who links with us here on Spiritual Sundays each week.
The year is a little more than half over now. I don't know why I'm surprised. I knew it would be that way. (Smile) This is a very special weekend for us here in America. Though some would seek to ban the American flag, most people are still patriotic. I don't know how long that will last because it seems like everything is just going "topsy turvy" these days. But for right now, it is still legal to fly our beloved flag. To all of you who live in this country, I wish you a safe and happy 4th of July.
I had thought about sharing some scripture in favor of marriage being between one man and one woman since that was all the topic of conversation for the past week. If I thought it would change any minds, I would do that. However, I realize that honest people differ with me on the subject. I do reject the idea though that there is no right or wrong but only what each individual decides what is right or wrong for them. I do believe there are absolutes.
Thank you for being faithful to share each week. Now it's time to start linking again.
