Do you ever get bored with blogging? I sometimes wonder if I should continue my blog, since I find myself going a week or more sometimes without posting. I don't live a terribly exciting life...I don't have a house full of children to inspire my posts...and I am not a great photographer, so I don't have a ton of amazing pictures to add to my posts either. We haven't traveled much lately, so there is nothing interesting to report there. I haven't recently read many inspiring books, and I haven't even been writing my story poems that I usually enjoy sharing...So I guess I am feeling like "I" am kind of "boring" at present!
I feel like I need to get away and experience the beauty of God's amazing creation! Isn't this a peaceful picture? I wish I knew where it was! (:>) Just looking at the picture, I feel God's presence!!!
I really love reading other people's blogs, and I love commenting, and I try to give encouragement when, and where I can. I LOVE to pray for other people's needs. Everyday my husband John and I do a devotion time together where we read the Bible, study it, and discuss what we have read...and then we pray for our needs...the needs of our adult kids, and our 11 grandkids,...and lastly, we pray for the needs of our friends, (blog friends too), extended family members, pastors, church body, and missionaries. We feel like it is the least we can do, and we consider it a ministry of prayer. We feel blessed to be able to enter the throne room and lay petitions at His feet...as we praise and worship our magnificent Lord and Savior.
Over the years I have met so many wonderful people in the blog world! I never dreamed I would care about so many of you so deeply. I feel so close to so many of you...and I love your children too. Having gone through the death of three of our grandchildren, we have a tender heart towards those of you who have experienced great loss. We also pray for those of you with complications in your pregnancies...and those who have babies born with issues....also many of you who deal with health issues yourselves. Since we are retired, we know what it is like to slow down, to not feel good a lot of the time,... and to not be able to "keep up" with the business of life sometimes. I think that just happens as people age. Not that we are ancient...but we are noticing that we are aging these days, and don't have the energy we used to have.
And what I like about blogging is that when someone is feeling down...there are so many of us to help each other up out of the pits we fall into sometimes! We KNOW that things are not hopeless, because we have seen others conquer so much by God's grace,...and then return to vibrancy and joy-filled living. I try to let my little light shine when I can...and so many of you have shared the light of Jesus with me over the years too. Thank you for always sharing God's word with me.
God's word is so alive...and so healing. It is medicine to the soul....like a high potency vitamin to enrich our lives... and to give us renewed strength.
I guess I am feeling a little "off" these days, and I could really use some rejuvenation! (:>) My husband is planning a little get away soon, so that we can just relax, have fun together, and a little change of scenery. I am looking forward to it. So, I hope it will happen soon before the weather turns too cold.
As Thanksgiving time approaches we all need to be considering all of our blessings...and telling the Lord thank you, for all that He has given us! I plan to be doing just that. I know that when we spend time praising Him, we don't worry so much, and we don't complain so much. So, it is a win, win situation. (:>)
Maybe my next post will have some bountiful blessings to share with all of you. Until then, I pray that each of you will feel His presence, and experience His power at work in your lives.
