Grateful

November 20, 2020

It is Friday, and I’m feeling like if I don’t do this, it won’t get done again. So this coming Thursday is Thanksgiving. Can you believe it? I am going to do my grateful list.

  • First, everyone in my family is well and safe. Yes, some of us have gone through rough things. But none of us have died. And I know that is something to be grateful for.
  • One of my biggest blessings was getting to spend ten days with some good friends of mine. I went by myself, without my parents, and one of my friends took care of me. We did a lot of eating out, had friends over, played games, watched movies. We had a lot of fun. I got to see friends that I haven’t seen in years. We’ve moved, and hopefully these friends and I are going to do more together.
  • My Mom’s family gathered a few weeks ago. Those times are always filled with catching up and good food. Think my favorite thing was getting some good one on one time with several of my cousins.

More on heaven

November 6, 2020

It has been a crazy week for all of us. The time has changed, and I know that has messed me up. I get tired pretty early. Of course, part of that is that I’m just tired of this wheelchair. And then there is this crazy election, and not knowing who has won. Everyone is waiting to hear what is going to happen for the next four years..

So what is heaven anyway? Heaven is a place God created, and it is also where He lives. But we know that God is infinite? How can an infinite God dwell anywhere? This is something our finite minds can not understand.

Many people think that all people will go to heaven when they die. Others think that you get in if you are good enough, or if your good outweighs your bad. None of things are actually true. We get to heaven only if we accept Jesus as Lord.

I am going to try my best to do this. My family has some plans coming up, so once again, I may be pretty quiet for a while. Okay, some people think that this life is all there is. You will live and die, and that is it. How sad is that? Everyone knows that this earth is not a perfect place. Everyone gets sick. Everyone loses people they love. Houses get broken into. We have all heard of natural disasters. Disabilities happen, and let me tell you, disability is not for the faint of heart. Heaven is where all will be made right again. It is so perfect we can not imagine.

Heaven

October 2, 2020

I know I am going to kick myself if I don’t do this today. I’m already tired and ready to be finished. So here goes.

We moved a couple months ago. And we’ve been going to this church. And lately this church has been talking about eternity. We are going to spend so little time here in comparison to the next life. And I’ve kind of been thinking about getting a book about heaven and talking about what I’ve read on this blog. Heaven knows that I don’t have too many ideas of what to do on this. The book is called, “The Heaven Answer Book”, and it is by Billy Graham.

The first question you may ask is, “Does the bible have much to say about heaven?” And the answer to that is a resounding yes. Jesus talks about heaven often. Psalms talks about heaven. The apostles talk about this place too.

You may also be asking, “What is heaven?” To start with, heaven is the place where the Lord God and Jesus His Son live. There we will be with Him face to face.

I do not know what I am doing on this blog. I think that is part of the problem. With my other blog, I know their purpose. My usual practice on those blogs is to look up a topic and then write about it. I like doing that, and am pretty comfortable doing it. I should be, that is a large part of what I consider my work to be each day and week. And Saturdays are the days I want to get through my blogs, and then hopefully have sometime to play.. Usually that means reading or doing some of a crossword puzzle. Part of me wants to think through more of purpose for this blog. But I don’t know when to do that. It is just hard to know what to do when. I know I am going to be busy a couple of Saturdays in October. I am pretty excited about both of the happenings that are to take place. I’m just really not sure what to do with this blog anymore.

Okay, I must confess that some Saturdays I mess around. Most Saturdays all I want is to know that all my work is done so that I can play. I’ve always been a person who likes knowing that what needs to happen is taken care. I like eating my dessert last so that I that is what I taste. I like doing my work first thing so I’ve know how much time I have to play. When someone is is coming over, I like getting up and getting my are work done so I can relax and enjoy being with them. It’s just how I am. But sometimes I’m so tired on Saturdays that I’ll indulge in a little novel reading, my usual form of fun, and sometimes that turns out to be more like an hour than the couple of minutes I thought I would do. Today I didn’t mess around at all before work, and everything I wanted to do for work is done before one o’clock. I love it.

I’ve been thinking that I should maybe check in here. I do not know what I am doing with this blog.. I was kind of struggling with every this blog when Mom and I started going to visit a nursing home once a week. I would prepare a little talk for them each week and and figured I might as well put that little talk on this. And so obviously our visits ended to them ended back in March. Around that time I added another blog which I write six days a week, and by Saturday I was just too tired to think straight. So I kind of gave up on this. Meanwhile, my family decided to move from Georgia to North Carolina. We have a house here. We used to live here, and we bought a nice lakehouse here. We’ve kept up with friends here through the years. So moving here made sense. And the past month, I’ve been off Of the computer between vacations and computer problems. So that is kind of where I’ve been for the past months..

Everyone knows that I love Israel. And yes, I have just come back from an amazing trip there where I met some amazing friends. But that is not the only reason. Israel is important because God says she is. The Lord told Abraham, the father of Israel, I will bless those who bless you, and curse those that curse you. And okay, if Israel was not important to God, how could they still be around? They have been through so many brutal attacks that these people should be history. However it is still a nation, and one we hear about often. Some people say that the Church has now replaced Israel. I do not believe that is true. God is a God who always keeps His promises. I believe we are to pray for the peace of Israel

In a few weeks, our family will welcome a new little one into our family. My youngest brother and his wife already have two boys. One is three and a half, and the other is two.

The older boy loves rodeoes and anything to do with that. Their family lives in Texas, and they have friends in the rodeo business. I think that is where this interest got started. I think Daddy is starting to introduce him to baseball. I think his younger brother mostly follows him around and does whatever big brother does.

Their parents have a little farm. I think they have chickens and a couple of horses. I know they used to have goats, but I think they have gotten rid of them.

These little guys are getting to have a little sister. I think of these crazy little guys with a tiny baby, and I just laugh. They are going to have to adjust for sure. I’m sure their parents and others around will teach them how to behave with their sister. I think, I hope, family is going to be part of our family gathering this spring. I can hardly wait to meet her.

I’m remembering some different neighbors who we had and did things with through the years. I remember a girl named Sylvia, and I think her mother’s name was Robin. I think Sylvia came to play at our house more than we went to play at her house. Getting to go over there was special and fun. A lot of that was because the sister next to me and I were with her by ourselves, without our parents, or the younger children. It’s hard to remember that at that time there were only two or maybe three younger kids. I know my sister and I stayed the night at Sylvia’s a couple of different times. I think that’s where we first saw “Parent Trap”.

There was also a college girl who lived up the street, how we three younger girls admired her. I do not even remember her name anymore. But she had a trampoline. We used to love to go up to her house. I don’t think we would have to have her with us in order to jump. But oh we loved it when she would come play with us. She would tell us stories of college life and all kinds of interesting things.
