An update from  Jane and Fr Bob Continued prayers please!

He had quadruple bypass surgery but is responsive so that’s good news. They are still keeping him sedated so he can get his rest. He will remain on the heart pump and ventilator for a bit longer because every time they lower the pump his heart rate plummets. Drs are watching progress to see if they will need to go back in and insert a pace maker. He has a long road to recover but he’s a fighter. Mom is holding up well just missing her “Bobby” not being home”



Let Everything Praise the Lord

Poor sleep made me grumpy this morning. . . knowing better didn’t help.  Puppy kisses thawed me out some . . . temporarily.



Then this quote from Psalm found me and brought with it a definite deterging quality.  “Trouble and anguish have found me out, but your commandments are my delight.” Psalm 119:143 ESV

GRUMPY?  Not me!

Psalm 150 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens![a]
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!

Praise him with trumpet sound;
    praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
    praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals;
    praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

It seems we ALWAYS seek to do

things we choose, in our own way.

But sheep are never left alone

to make up their own minds.

They seem so calm and rested

and do as the shepherd tells them to.

Love and care he offers

and they easily accept.

They are totally dependant on him.

Yet when God reacts this way to us,

we turn the other way.

I used to think sheep foolish creatures!

But, they aren’t the fools,

we are!

You speak without words

Yet your message is so clear

And I ride the flame

It always seems so difficult

to have lost the ones you love

even though we know that they

are pain free up above.

But oh the happy memories

that come back with a start!

For I know that they are nearest

When I look inside my heart.

Alistair Begg:

“Remind yourself every day you get up

and everywhere you go,

‘I am in the presence of God.’”

When love seems the farthest 

from my heart,

and my grasp,

that is when,

in truth

I am the most closely

wrapped in His arms!
