This treatise is the result of a visit to church 1-18-09, and a song that became the root for the acrostic Worthy Is The Lamb, on 1-19-09 the second acrostic was gelled into the first.
Sleep comes to me quickly at times.
Laboring at the store, and into the bed I climb.
Even when work is off, the sleep is on, so nappy!
Ever seeking first to read His Holy Word.
Pleased to say it happens more often than not.
Sleep a little and be refreshed. Then when your sleepy pies are cleared from the eyes, read His Word and be ready for the rest of the day.
You are important!

It's On The Horizon
|I wrote this on 04-27-2013. The Lord is in this place, even in the midst of turmoil, high bills, no internet, and health issues. Read and Know that you are not alone, just as we see in so many ways we are not alone either.
"It's On The Horizon
The turn around is there.
Sit still and know it will come."
Oh Lord the sky keeps clouding up.
Nearer to the horizon we long to be.
"This is in My timing and not yours.
Here in the heavenlies the time is always right.
Every day you've encountered is in the past."
Hear our voices Lord, listen to our pleas.
Open the flood gates of blessing upon those in West.
Reel in the evil schemes roiling far and wide in this nation.
Insert Your presence in our lives and let others see You are at work.
Zooming in on the goal we aim to do.
Opening our hearts to Your guidance and wisdom.
No money in the bank, rent coming up, upon the horizon we will focus, for there You are.

Pray for Us!
|Pray for us.
Rent is due Monday morning.
We are 57 short!
On top of that we need $ for gas and food.
Appying for food stamps and praying that will come through.
Paying less than full rent gets us into late fees that eat up our mid month check.
We have many outstanding bills that we need to start paying on including;
1400.00 ambulance ride for Rhonda on 2-19-13 when she fainted for a second time in less than 5 days.
125.00 for the final bill at our old apartment complex.
240.00 + on an electric bill we cannot catch up on.
592.00 sent to collections already from JPS, the place Rhonda and I go for medical treatment and medicines.
245.00 to old cable company already sent to collections.
Paying 80 a month on 401k loans I had to take out earlier to avoid being in bankruptcy.
Therefore my income is reduced by that much every darn month and the bills are sitll needing to be paid.
Having to pay off a pay day advance that takes another 100.00 per pay check.
Anyone know a financial counselor in the Arlington, Texas area that won't charge us to help us find a way out of this morass?
|Motivation? What is it really but the conscious decision to get up and go.
What motivates a person to get up and go, whereas another shows no compunction to do a thing?
What drives a person to invent the next medical advance that saves the lives of hundreds?
What motivates me? Many things including my faith in the Lord. Having faith in the Lord lets me know that I can celebrate the Lord's resurrection every Easter Sunday with gusto. Because it's a true and living reminder of His promise to return after his crucifixion.
The monetary society in which we live today also motivates me to get up and do, or we would be out on the streets. That's a fact that cannot be escaped. Money and all it's good for can be a great motivational drive. Praying for the day that there is enough of it to help another in need, is why I continue working and toiling even now in the customer service industry. Approaching nine years on the 17th of April, is a milestone I never even considered reaching when I started. Now with it in reach the drive to continue is kicking in, so lets shoot for 10 years at the same store!
Can it be done? Time will tell.
You are beloved! Find that which motivates you and get busy doing it.

|Egg hunts are kinda cool.
Galloping about for some baubble with candy inside.
Golly I remember when we had real eggs! Hard boiled of course.
So one of my best memories is recently when the fam got together at my nieces house and I saw all of the kiddos running hither and yon in the front lawn picking up eggs galore. It was just a fun time and relaxing with the fam. A video of the festivities is preserved and I may one day link it to this from YouTube.
Happy Resurrection day! For it is He whom all the hype is really about. Jesus the Savior is alive!

|Do I live for the journey or the dstination? That is the question.
The answer is a little of both.
The journey reminds us that we are alive and that with persistence we can make a difference in the lives of others.
The destination is an unbelieveable destination in the end, when at last my faith is made sight and praising the Lord in His presence begins in earnest upon my departure from this fleshly presence.
Now that's the best retirement plan of all.
You are beloved!

|Well is a deep hole that more often than not holds a body of water at the bottom.
Everyone may have heard of well water. There is a distinct taste to it.
Like an earthy taste and yet it is still sufficient to slake your thirst.
Listen to the heart. There is a thirst within that is seeking to be refreshed. May you find not only a physical well but a well that will fulfill the thirst of knowing the things that will make your life happy and prosperous.
You are important and beloved!
