Psalm 143:10 “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.”
The pitter pat of the droplets ting-ing on the metal roof breaks the silence.”It’s raining again,” I sigh. With the clock about to tick off the end of anniversary 27-2, this February 19, 2018, I patiently wait in the darkness, reviewing my day.

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
“Haaaappy Birrrrrthday toooo you! No more wishes, Archie, they’ve all come true! We are so glad you’re home!” Archie is smiling his wonderful toothy smile, those beautiful blue eyes squinting so tightly from the joy, that they disappear into tiny slits while overlooking the banquet table filled with all of his favorite foods. In front of him is his favorite cake,”death my chocolate,” which brings snickers because everyone knows his sense of humor, so of course he just HAD to pick that one! Smoked bbq is the main dish and macaroni salad, almost as good as Sandi’s, is within arms reach for all. Beside him are our two children that went before him, one would now be turning 28, the other 24, both in May.
The long table with the fine linen table cloth and golden silverware is surrounded by familiar faces, family and friends, who went before or after, all beaming with the joy of the celebration.

The smell of caramel coffee permeates the air as I grab my brew, in on of my favorite cups , and head to “room ala mom” for my daily chat with Heavenly Dad. What are we going talk about today, my my wonders.

Brrrrrrng! For the first time in a while, the alarm sat me straight up in bed.”What in the world?” I had fallen into bed a little over four hours before, but there was snow that needed to be moved so I could be released from my snowy bastille.

As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. 1 Samuel 17:48
What would life look like if, when our enemies attack, our world collapsed, or grief engulfed us, we ran towards it, and shouted,”Let’s do this!”
