Tim Lehaye is gone!

Not one person, with whom I disagreed , touched me more deeply than Tim Lehaye. I met him at the Olive Branch bookstore, on Long Island, a long time ago. We prayed for another brother, who was suffering at that time. I was touched by his sensitivity and realness, for being a best-selling author.

Sunday and Monday I felt something very special was happening in the kingdom of God on earth. I was not so surprised to find out that we had lost a great spiritual General and strategist for Christ. I was saddened, that I had taken his gifts and books and blessings for granted. He was truly great.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
Someone special went to Heaven, this week. 90 years on earth was like a blink of an eye compared to the impact of this man. Much writing, many souls learning about Jesus and commitment to Christ was inspired by his mighty pen. His pen was certainly mightier at felling principalities and powers than any sword could have been. I am grateful to have met him. I am grateful to have been on earth during his stay and I look forward to many long conversations after we spend a million or so years praising and thanking God for His mighty mercies. It will be wonderful to find out how he was able to write so much. He really helped us all to number our days, so that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

What a significant day it was this week. 7-21

I am working 6 days and it is summer, so the days and nights blend together sometimes. But, I am doing fine and jumping in and out of sniffles, colds and other childhood sicknesses that are constantly trying to get me down. I much prefer running from the sniffles, while I frolic with my flock of 10 or so 2 year olds. They are a wonderment to me! We got two new infants at the daycare and they engage me, staring into the future, as I do. My tablet is broken and Evvi says "don't say tablet in front of mom" Nothing is like an i-pad. Once you start on it, no other device will do. So I am somewhat tech-free, except for an occasional blog-post.

The North Carolina sky is a tourist attraction, in itself. It looks as though they alone have a close spot of the sky to heaven. Everyday the sky is swirling and painted with nearly perfect renditions of this or that. If you take your eyes off of your device for a moment to admire the beauty of the sky, you don't have to go anywhere to see the wonder of NC. My prayer-time was especially pertinent on "ABBYday". I am still reeling from the great enjoyment of God, that I am getting, looking into His word, daily. He knows our frame, scripture says. He considers the plight of those who are trusting in Him. I am still trusting Him. It is a quiet time for me. It is a relatively tech free time. Not talking on the phone or emailing. As soon as I get my device fixed, I will be back in the threads.

God is Good!

My friend, the bluejay came and posed on my bird feeder!

Mrs. Walker, she chirped. It is not a song, when you are getting reproved, by the birds. It was strong and a chirp, if not a cheep. There is no food in this bird feeder. I call this false advertisement. Here I am posing and decorating your yard with my beauty and the least you could do is fill the bird feeder. I have connections and the birds will not be back, if you are as inconsiderate as I think you are. We often call you mommy, but we have changed your name, in the light of your recent unthoughtful behaviors with regards to us.

I received the reproof and I will get to the store asap!

America the Beautiful, I see God darning us as He would a sock.

Matthew 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Matthew 5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
God mend thine ev'ry flaw, Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law! the book LWF the chapter of Father sewing on a button makes me giggle to think about a distinguished man taking a needle to his clothes, for spite, somewhat. here is the link

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!

My Father and I 1989

to the tune of Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme


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.
