You are there!

Watching my grand-baby, June, sitting in the sand
 one early morning of our family vacation last week, 
while she took in the magic and wonder of this brand-new place in her life experience,
 the words of Psalm 139 came into my memory like a warm ray of hope 
and an on-going shelter from the harsh winds of pain.  
 I hope they will do the same for you.

Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
Or to be out of your sight?

If I climb to the sky, you're there!
If I go underground you're there!

If I flew on morning's wings to the far western horizon,
You'd find me in a minute--
You're there already waiting!

Your thoughts--how rare, how beautiful!
God, I'll never comprehend them!

I couldn't even begin to count them--
Any more than I could count the sand of the sea.

Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you.

Psalm 139, selected (The Message)

I would love to hear from you—



  1. The more I visit your blog, the more I appreciate how you have 'overcome' your situation by putting it 'to work' for the benefit of others. Thanks for your courage and strength of character as well as the tenacity of your faith!

    1. My faith is two steps forward and one step back...I am thankful that God's faith in ME is always forward!
