Praying God's comfort to the families suffering in Colorado, Today

Just a moment of anguish is breathtaking, sometimes. When one of the children forget to call and they are missing from the expected place. I pray that this time of the ultimate fear coming to pass for those parents and loved ones of the trajedy today, We pray for God to comfort their hearts and ours. I learned this little scripture song years and years ago. Many days in my tears on my pillow, far from loved ones, I sing it in my heart. The Scriptures grant the ultimate comfort, until we see our Savior face to face and the fears and problems dissolve in His presence. I am saddened today, because of this great loss and great betrayal of one to the many.

I made an apron on Emily's machine today. Wishing to get on my old Singer working soon. Until...

I am so grateful for the beautiful machine that I have. Thank you to this nice gentleman for familiarizing me with the technicalities.

Praying you'll be slow to speak!

I prayed for my "always women", on my "PRAYDOS" run today. As I set up the photos on my circle table, remembering a godly older woman who also had one. I cleaned my room and prayed special prayers for my babies. I put an angel with a harp, to symbolize a prayer for protection wherever you go. I put a snail made by my Evva to symbolize being slow to speak, or update your status on "facebook". And I put a small jewelry box to signify your treasured status in my heart. God keep them from evil and to goodness and usefulness. Amen!

Happy Fourth!

A long, long time ago,  I sat in Battery Park with this song playing in my walkman.  I revelled at the distant view of Lady Liberty and the very, very distant view of my salvation through the cross of My Savior.  I nearly danced before the Lord, right there in the midst of the Wall Street throng, on my lunch hour.
Now that I am torn from a real view of my statue, I have my memories and I still have this song to remind me that I am never torn from my salvation.   No matter the distance between myself and Lady Liberty.  :)

One day, a long time ago, I heard a voice above the cacophony of Independence. It comforted my soul!

It took me many years to find the voice. I had an "H" in my memory, but I was very sick and couldn't retain anything but that the name was strange and began with an H. I am reminded that comfort comes in many different ways and when you find it, know that God has given it. I hope you enjoy my comfort today.

Widdle Emmie in outer space school

Emmie jumped on the bus and off it flew out into the atmosphere. There was a set of clouds with turbulence right above the house and it took a few minutes for my Emmie to buckle her seatbelt. They hit the bump hard and it knocked my Emmie out of her seat and she bumped her head. The video camera came on and the monitor looked through and stated, Ms. Emmie, where are you? You are not in your seat. Where are you? I am alright I fell because I hadn’t buckled correctly. Well jump up Emmie we have a long way to go and you have to be buckled there is entirely too much turbulence in the stratosphere for you to unbuckle now. As soon as we are through this weather system there will be straight sailing but right now you must buckle. Emmie scrambled into the seat with intensity and purpose now. She watched every cloud pass her window and her nose was pressed to the window trying to see the top of the house as it drifted slowly out of sight. Soon they were not only out of sight of the house, the sun came out brightly and just as quickly they were putting on the atmospherical breathing apparatus and the outerspherical lights. The ABA and the OL. These precautions were to make them appear to be satellites to the radar as they were out in the ionosphere. Emmie knew all about this now. She had gone to the orientation and had a good breakfast and it took them 20 minutes for her to get out past the atmospherical pull and to feel the zero gravity. It would be 15 minutes before the gravity simulators would take effect, a glitch in the system which was being worked on. Until then, they enjoyed the couple of minutes of floatation, while being connected to the seats by belt. The first thing they saw everyday was the strataflotsam. The items which had been dumped into the atmosphere by earlier generations. What would their generation do about this ecological waste area that remained floating above their heads? This was a question for the generations. For now it was the area that they had to guide through on the way to school.

My little Emmie

ran to the bus on the first day of the last year of school. 2 buns on the side of her head. She kissed me and ran at dawn to the bus. She was starting the adventure of a lifetime. I would never see that little girl again, she was going to woman school!

Are you going to Mary Immaculate?

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

Remember me to the one who lived there,

He once was a true love of mine,

Tell him to buy me an acre of land,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

Between the muddy Hudson in Jamaica Bay,

Then, He’ll be a true love of mine,

Tell him to sow in it seeds of pure cream,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

And build Ice cream mountains and buildings of whipped cream,

Then, He’ll be a true love of mine,

Tell him to reap them with sickles of M&M’s,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

And chew bubble gum and eat till we’re done,

Then, He’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell him to run it off down the motor parkway,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

After your done 50 pushups

and jog down the West Side Highway,

Then he’ll be a true love of mine…

(Don’t wait for me today dad, The kids are sick again, My tummy’s bulging again, My heart is aching again, And now there’s no love there…)

He once was, a true love of mine….So, Girls, I do beg you don't miss your Daddy,Apricots, Chocolate cherries and Pie,You have one short chance to see him on this side, Go visit him and let your light shine.
