Slow Blogging

This is just an update on my slow blogging. I have been suffering some medical issues and while my Dr is searching for an answer, it does not look like one will come quickly! Please do keep me in your prayers and I will try to post more often. God bless you and thank you all my friends!

Shadowland – An Amazing Journey

The shadows lengthen, the sun is obscured by the cliffs on either side of the path. The air is heavy, our breathing labored. I’ve been in this place before. I recognize the terrain, the sights and smells. I hear the rustle of Death’s robe as he follows at a distance. His breath quickens as he draws near in anticipation of his next victim.

We have entered the Valley of the Shadow of Death.

How I despise this part of life’s journey.

And yet, there is much to be seen and learned in this place if those attending the sojourner pay attention. For it is also a place of comfort, of hope, and the nearness of Jesus for those who have entrusted themselves to His care.

This will be a short trip this time, I think. My dear friend – more like a father to me than my own ever was – has bone cancer. He’s fading quickly.

Thoughts of the loss of another beloved one in this place scratch at my raw emotions like a claw. It was just eight years, one month and six days ago that my mother’s journey through this valley ended.

At the same time, sweet memories of the last trip lay play like wispy mist while we walk. We talk of those times, my friend and I. We remember dreams of an angel enfolding Mom in his wings, of watching her play with “baby angels” while she was recovering from her surgery. The outline of a Lion in the picture at the end of her bed (Aslan standing guard!).

I tell him of her decision to discontinue the medication she was on – it wasn’t working; her conversation with the doctor,

“Yes, I am ready to die.”

We talk about how I watched her make the last knot in her “needlework,” poke the needle into the pincushion, and smooth out her last bit of work during drug-induced sleep; the opening of her sightless eyes minutes before she left us – the gift of a final farewell to her family….and the feather that fell from a bird-less sky the afternoon she left us.

It was a painful time, a fretful time, and yet a time of great hope.

It seems that we’re very nearly on the same path once again. I’ve seen that stump before, and that gnarled tree over there, too.

This all sounds so somber and heavy, to tell it in this way. In some ways it is. Thankfully, the separation won’t be forever, though.

For my friend, it is an adventure. “Wow! I’ve never died before. I wonder what it will be like? This is exciting!” was his joyous response when he was given the news. Only someone who knows where they are going can react like that.

And he knows! With barely a backward glance at those of us who will remain on earth, he’s ready – eager to be reunited with his wife. They’ve been separated for two long years.

(She’s been keeping my mom company – I’ll bet the two of them have made quilts for each of our homes from the finest fabrics heaven has to offer, and painting pictures to grace our walls.)

We’ve talked for many hours about what lies beyond the gossamer-thin veil that separates this world from the next. We’ve spun some exciting stories about things we hope to do and see. The most amazing activity we long for is our first face-to-face visit with Jesus Himself. Oh, what will that be like? we wonder.

Our favorite topic is: What will we be doing a million years from today? We will certainly be doing something! The Bible says we will be like Jesus when we see Him. That’s AWESOME!

Did you ever read in the Bible about the stuff that Jesus did after He rose from the dead?

He ate and drank. He could be touched. He was reunited with those He loved.

He flew! Right up into the atmosphere without a jet pack or oxygen tank.

My personal favorite is:

POOF! Now you see Him inside a locked room.

POOF! Now you don’t!

I’m gonna have fun with that one for about the first hundred years.

Expect me!

Yeah, I hate this valley, but it isn’t so bad when I remember that separation will only be for a little while. We will see one another again. Because we know Jesus, we will never see Death, but pass from life to life.

The Bible describes it as

“Mortality being swallowed up by life.”

Now, that’s good news!

Thank You, Jesus, that You have not left us without hope. I will dearly miss my friend, but I’m so thankful that I will not “lose” him. I’ll know right where to find him, and that’s with You.

Thank You for Your comfort and support as we walk through this valley. I’m so glad that it’s only the “shadow” of Death, for Death cannot touch those who belong to You.

I’m glad that we will live forever with You – and never have to deal with death, sickness, sorrow, guilt, shame, or evil forever after. Now that is good news indeed!

Most Influential Blogger Award X3

This is an update on The Most Influential Blogger Award! My friend, D at Pumabydesign has nominated Loopyloo’s “Armor of God” as well and I am including her link here: http://pumabydesign001.com/2013/07/29/most-influential-blogger-award-my-nominations-and-the-rules/
Why did you start a political blog and when? answer: I started this in 2009 as a political blog but realized that it was not what was right for me and changed to what it is now, mostly Christian principles and news.
Do you think there is any hope of restoring the United States to a constitutional republic in your lifetime?
If you could have a home by the sea or the mountains, what would you choose?
What book has influenced your life (other than the Bible or Torah) and how? This I answered previously!
What is your dream vacation? Would love to go to Alaska for a couple of weeks or longer!
If you could have dinner with any person, alive, who would that be? Answered!
If you could change any law or practice in the USA, what would that be? I would get rid of the legality of abortion!

We have been blessed with an abundance today, we have been nominated by both Biltrix and the Mad Jewess for the Most Influential Blogger award!

The rules are:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. Answer 7 questions.
  4. Nominate ( no limit of nominations ) other bloggers for this award and link back to them.
  5. Notify those bloggers of the award requirements.

Not surprisingly the questions that Biltrix and the Mad Jewess asked are totally different and so I will list them separately!

First Biltrix:

1. If you could create your own planet what would it look like? answer: Pretty much like the earth, God did a wonderful job and I can’t imagine anything I could come up with would be better!

2. If you could visit one nation you have never visited before, what nation would that be? answer: That is tough, Israel or Italy, both because of their history!

3. Who is your favorite saint? answer: I am not Catholic and do not know all the saints, but I would have to say what I have read of St. Francis makes him a man worth admiring.

4. What is your favorite animal? answer: cats, in all sizes, they are unique I think, in the predatory way that they exist in the wild and even in human companionship, and yet they are very individual in their characteristics.

5. What is your favorite song? I have so many that I love it is hard to pick a single favorite, I do think that this is an especial one:

But I do so love to listen to the violin and this is another favorite:

6. If you could meet one person who is still alive who would you choose to meet? answer: I agree with Biltrix, Jesus!!!!

7. Name a book that you have read (other than the bible) which has influenced your life and describe how it influenced you. answer: When I was growing up I loved to read and read almost everything I could get my hands on, but my favorite genre at the time was Science Fiction and one book that I read over and over was a book by David Gerrold and Larry Niven, called “Flying Sorcerers”, it was written in the 1940′s. But the premise of the book is still relevant today, someone from the outside coming in with new technology, and different ideas, telling the people how they should live. The results in the book are hilarious and teach a wonderful lesson that should humble anyone who thinks they are more intelligent than the people they are visiting. I highly recommend it and believe it or not, it has nothing to do with sorcery. It is a book I still like to read, especially when I need a good laugh, it makes me laugh till I cry and I have probably read it fifteen times.

Next from the Mad Jewess:

1. What is your favorite bird? answer: this is hard, I love to watch all kinds of birds, I have a whole section of just birds on pinterest, I don’t think I can really pick one!

2. What season do you like best? answer: Fall, I like the changing weather, the fall storms, the colors and just the feeling that is in the air at fall time.
3. If you could have a home by the sea or the mountains, what would you choose? answer: Mountains, I have always enjoyed being in the mountains!
4. Do you like Vladimir Putin? answer: No
5. What decade do you like the best? (40′s, 50′s, etc) answer: I would have to say that the 80′s were one of the best times in my own life, it was a time when everything went fairly well, no real problems. That is sad though that I would consider it that way, but you really judge the quality of time based on your own experiences and for me and my family, it was a good decade!
6. What is your favorite TV show? (Political, etc) answer: I don’t really have one, I truly do not watch much TV, but it would have to be something where there are challenges involved. Ice Road truckers had a season where they traveled the most challenging roads in the world and I really liked that. I guess you can tell I like to see people overcome the challenges that are before them.
7. Do you hate getting old? answer: No, I don’t hate getting old, I don’t like not being able to do what I could when I was younger, but getting older means just a little closer to a wonderful meeting in heaven.
Now for my own nominations:
  1. My friend professor X at Partnering With Eagles
  2. Sherry at Quotes and Notes
  3. angels2send
  4. Jesus is my Joy ministries

As for questions, I think that it would be great if you just took your choice from the ones above. God bless you all and thanks again to Biltrix and the Mad Jewess!

Healing Time

There are times when the most important thing that we can do is to just set back and review where we have been and where we are going. Sometimes we try to decide for our selves what the Lord wants us to do. We get in the way and make the process more and more difficult. Three things today have reminded me that we are all in His hands and no matter what our own desires are, they are not what God may want from us. A niece’s husband died having a stent put in and I hope that you will include her and her children in your prayers, she is very ill herself, reading Terry Shepherd’s blog about her brother, she is heart broken at times and needs our prayers for strength, and another friend, who lives abroad suffers with her eyesight and yet is so generous and willing to share her work for the world to see, at least the small bit that reads these blogs.

Sitting here listening to “I can only imagine” by Mercy Me brings it into even more perspective. We are just small parts of a very large plan. We may never be able to conceive of the greatness of it but we can do our part and pray for those we know are in need and for those who we don’t know. If the whole world spent ten minutes out of each day giving glory to God, can we even begin to imagine the transformation that would be possible? If you are giving thanks to Him and praying for others, getting into mischief is a little less likely don’t you think? Please do remember these in prayer and visit Terry, at:

Tribute to Terry 1954

The rules are simple, because simple is good.

1. Display the award on your blog.

2. Thank the person who sent it to you.

3. Answer a rhetorical question of the authors choosing.

4. Send on the award to everyone you consider a loyal reader.

Rhetorical Question: This is Terry’s question:If you were on a deserted island, how would you survive? And my answer would be pretty much the same as her’s, I would rely on God to provide!

I am so honored that Terry nominated me for this award but I simply can not fulfill the obligation to send it to everyone you consider a loyal reader. There are simply too many. Some who click like always, others who give me feedback in other areas, and some that usually take time to comment. God bless you all and I truly do appreciate you!

So thank you Terry, you are a wonderful friend, and I love you dearly. Watching you with Al, reading what comes from your heart, is often inspiring, sometime heartbreaking, but always real. You have been a lifeline to me at times that you never realized it. I cry with you, laugh with you, and wonder how I would handle the things that you do.

If those of you who read this blog do not know Terry, it is time that you did. Please visit her and take a moment to add her and Al to your prayers. Terry1954

If you haven’t read her blog before, we have featured her posts here a few times and it is a great honor that she has accepted our invitation. Please do take time to welcome her here.

Welcome to New Voices

I have been blessed lately with abundance but one of the best things out of that abundance is the opportunity to add new voices  to this blog as well as The Christian Gazette! Please welcome Martha from In Love With the Lord and Sherry from He Hath Said! They both have excellent blogs that I have read often and I know that you will enjoy them as well. Please welcome them and encourage them in their writing. God bless  you all!


Restraint

I have been praying very hard this past week on guidance on whether to move Loopyloo’s, keep blogging on it, or to concentrate on my other sites and the post that I do for Grumpy’s Opinions. While I have been praying, restraint is the message that I have been getting from the Lord. I have decided to let Loopyloo’s lie fallow for awhile and practice the restraint that the Lord is telling me that I need to do.

In the midst of this the Lord sent a friend with an offer my way as well! Marezilla offered me a chance to write for her. I truly appreciate the offer, she herself is suffering and is not able to do everything that she wants. She has several other writers as well, so there is no pressure to post all the time, which is a pressure that I am very bad about putting upon myself. It gives me the opportunity to practice restraint as well as the opportunity for something new.

I will continue my post on The Christian Gazette, A Needed Word, and Grumpy’s Opinions, and if would would like to read the posts that I put up at Zilla’s , here is the link to her site: Marezilla.com


Update on Posting

Until I can get I can get another site set up I will be posting at The Christian Gazette and A Needed Word along with posts at Grumpy’s Opinions. I hope all my loyal followers will read these, as I intend to keep my other sites up regardless of what happens with Loopyloo’s. If you haven’t checked out the other sites, please do and God bless you all! The Christian Gazette and A Needed Word are both wordpress blogs so you can just click follow and read them along with your other follows. Updates from Pastor Kerry Mauldin will be at the Christian Gazette, and is currently in India and I have a new post up for him today! Joy Among the Gypsies is his newest letter. A Needed word is simply a short daily (mostly daily) needed word. Grumpy’s Opinions is a daily news magazine and opinion digest that has many wonderful authors and is well worth your time if you have never read it. Please do check it out.


Invitation

I would like to introduce a new blog: A Needed Word


A Prayer Request

Sometimes you know that all you can do is call out to God, this is one of those times. Our blogging friend terry1954 has had some very bad news about her brother Al. Please take a few minutes to visit her site and say a prayer for them both. God bless you: http://terry1954.wordpress.com/2013/01/14/i-am-falling-and-cant-get-up/

ROLL CALL! Amusing Bunni needs us RIGHT NOW!

Posted on November 13, 2012 by Zilla • 0 Comments

Amusing Bunni is a dear friend, a blogger, and the maker of the most adorable kitty videos ever. She used do a lot of Conservative blogging (from Chicago!) but a while back the death threats she received (from sickos who didn’t even TRY to hide their IP addresses!) got to be too much so she backed off from the politics and just did adorable videos mostly, while coming to other Conservative blogs and making them better for her having stopped by there in our comments sections. I knew something was going on with her when I saw this:

Sometimes, you get news in life that is so awful, so horrible, and
the worst is when you can do NOTHING about it to change it…..  continue reading at MareZilla.com

Prayer Request for Grumpy Elder

Many of you know Grumpy from Grumpy’s Opinions, and if you he has a wonderful news and opinion magazine blog which is well worth your time. It has many writers, some of whom you know here from the comments, such as MJ, Bob A., and many others. I sometime add in my own opinion.

But to get back to the prayer request. Grumpy has been having some health issues and spent weekend before last in the hospital. He seems to be having some serious problems with his heart. Torimom post on Grumpy’s Opinions this morning that he was suffering again. Grumpy is a wonderful man and a fellow follower of the Lord. Please include him in your prayers. There have been so many suffering this year.

And for all of you prayer warriors, an update, Zilla left me a note and said that she is back home and out of the hospital. She is not healed yet so we need to continue to pray for her, but she is at home. Prayer works my friends!!!!! God bless you all!!!

Psalm 18

King James Version (KJV)

18 I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay.

19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.

23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

24 Therefore hath the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.

27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.

28 For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

31 For who is God save the Lord? or who is a rock save our God?

32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

33 He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.

34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.

37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the Lord, but he answered them not.

42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.

46 The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

47 It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.

48 He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.

49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.

50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.


Pray for MareZilla

Please pray for my friend MareZilla, as all of you who know her know, she has been ill for sometime, but is worse. The Lonely Conservative has posted the following update on her site. Please go there and read the story. I am including the video below. Please pass this information on and include her in your prayer lists. God bless you!
