Your Dying Spouse 470 - How To Live Your Death {FMF}

Live hard, as though you will live forever
and die without including moment's regret
for things you might have done, or did, together
with those whose bright potential you let
slip; they're a past from which Satan will never
consent to release his bondage, so forget
what's behind, and push ahead, head held high
to greet God with a high-five, and look Him in the eye.

{The Five Minute Friday prompt this week is include.}


Music from Bon Jovi and Jennifer Nettles, with the cheerfully engaging song and video Who Says You Can't Go Home




Please pardon my slow response to comments. I do my best, and your comments are really precious to me. Barb is answering many of them now. I'm running on fumes, if you don't mind a macho metaphor.

I'm grateful for the energy to have written this. I'm so glad Barbara's stepped in for many of my posts. I'm really not doing well at all.

Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback soon.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

Marley update... been moved to a sanctuary, and Bay County will revise their 'dangerous dog' codes.


WE MADE A DIFFERENCE!

And marley has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.


If you can, please do leave a comment. I am trying to answer all, and I am failing, but please know this - I read and treasure each one.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.

  2. I would love to give God a high five and look Him in the eye right now. Thank you for the reminder to keep looking at God, not be stuck in what is behind. And thank you for the song too. I loved the joy. I will be saying a prayer for you and Barbara. ☺️
