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
Again, I am always amazed at how fast a week flies by. Can it be that the weekend is already here again. Maybe it's because we're retired that the time passes so quickly. Or maybe it's my age. I know weeks were much longer when I was younger. LOL
So, now it is time to begin linking again. Thank you everyone for continuing to share with us week after week.
Summer is winding down in our part of the world, and school has started in many places.
It still seems to me like school should always start after Labor Day. But of course I'm not in charge so I guess I will just have to let them start whenever they want to. LOL
Yesterday we visited an old friend we had not seen in awhile. He is younger than I am and he is dying. The doctors say he could die tomorrow or he could live two more years. The reason I am even mentioning this is because I was so impressed with his attitude. When we walked in, he was lying down watching TV. He gave us a hardy welcome and when asked how he was feeling, he said "terrific". He said he didn't hurt anywhere and that is amazing because he has advanced rheumetoid arthritis. At one time he played the piano for the church we were with. And he was not just an ordinary piano player, he was an outstanding one. He had his own style and added a lot of extra notes in everything he played. He has been unable to play the piano now for several years. He wants to keep living but he isn't afraid to die. He knows heaven will be his destination. I wish everyone could approach their last days like he is. What an inspiration he is.
So now, let's start linking those inspirional posts. All of you inspire me by the way you continue to link with us week after week.
Wow, am I glad I increased the characters for post titles last week. Several of you commented on how much you appreciated it. I wish I had thought of it sooner. In fact, I wish I had thought of it period. Thanks again, Gail, for the suggestion.
For those of you who remember Ginger who co-hosted this blog when we first started it, I thought you might be interested to know that she and her hubby were guests in our home last weekend. They live in California and we don't get to see them very often so it is always a treat when they come to see us.
I know I don't need to remind you that we all need to be in prayer for the future of our country. Of course even more so we need to be praying for the entire world. I really believe that we are getting pretty close to the time when God will say "enough" and "it's time for all this craziness to come to an end." Of course he won't say it that way, but that is my "interpretation" of it.
In the meantime, now it's time to begin linking again. Thank you to everyone who participates.
Have you noticed that now you can have a longer title for the post you share? For a long time it was limited to 15 characters.
Gail Griner Golden asked if it would be possible to increase it because it was sometimes difficult to make the title that short. Thank you, Gail, for this suggestion. Honestly I hadn't thought about it before, but you're right. Fifteen characters just isn't enough so I've increased it to 45. It also occurred to me that others may have suggestions that will improve this blog. I'm not saying I will make the change, but I will certainly consider it.
So now it is time to start linking. I hope you enjoy the character change. And if you need information on how to link, just click on Linking Info under the header picture for instructions.
