Your Dying Spouse 609 - To The End

They say I should resign myself
for the losses yet to come,
sell off my dreams from the shelf
where they lived since I was young.
Time for cleaning, Swedish Death,
that's so popular these days,
so my wife can spare her breath
going through my throw-aways.
They say it's really very clear
that my time is getting short,
and I should plan on leaving here,
but this is my retort:
What I have left I will defend
and keep the light on to the end.

Music from Feeder, with the relentlessly cheerful Buck Rogers.

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, the canine waif from Afghanistan, whom WE helped save, has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.

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. ... your light is even brighter, and your defense even more solid! Keep defending. Keep shining. ... we'll keep praying.

    1. Jane, thank you so much. The prayers are really needed, and you remain in ours.

  3. That's the spirit! You are a warrior. Glad you're here. Bless you.

  4. Whoever "they" are- no way... SO glad you stay the fight!

    1. Misty, yeah...I'll stay. Let 'em gnash their teeth.

  5. You, my friend, continue to inspire me. Your determination to live well, to defend—including your wife and her future—instill me with determination to live for Jesus whole-heartedly and to not give in to lesser things this side of heaven.

    I continue to pray for you and Barb and the dogs.

    1. Jeanne, I'm truly honoured...thank you so much for this, and we all thank you for your prayers.

  6. Your light is an amazing beacon that inspires all who encounter it. You amaze and inspire and humble me. Praying for a miracle and for your light to not only stay on but to become even stronger!

    1. Patti, thank you so much for these wonderful, grace-filled words, and for your prayers
