Your Dying Spouse 699 - Living Water

Life is hard, but God is there.

We can't know His ways; we just have to trust.

We have to keep our faith alive, no matter what. And to be grateful for what is yet ours.

I'd say more, but I'm too ill today, and ask your prayers.

Our Lord is living water
and our thirst is for His slaking,
but we’re lambs unto the slaughter,
and our hearts are for the breaking.
We cannot see His meanings,
we cannot know His ends,
but our meagre bloody gleanings
are the bodies of our friends.
Someday, perhaps, we’ll understand,
or perhaps we never will,
why some where destined for the grand
and others for the kill.
Meanwhile, pilgrim, bow your head.
you still have time, and are not dead.

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.

    Psalm 27: 13-14:
    I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

  3. You are in my prayers so much tonight! May Jesus hold you so closely thru it all.

    1. Bettie, thank you so much! It's kind of bad.
