|Tell us a mysterious story. Or write a review of your favorite mystery book or movie.
Mystery of mysteries when you make a call.
You're expecting the interaction to go as planned.
Several days later you find it's a catastrophe after all.
That one call you made appears to have double landed.
Everything you thought was going to happen did not.
Revealed in the paper work you find It's doubled by a lot.
In the long run your account is overdrawn!
Everything looks bleak and out of reach, in the netherworld of cyber banking.
Still the mystery continues, and the calls are blowing up your cell phone.
MYSTERIES are all too often based upon reality and this a true story of this authors attempt to pay a partial amount on a bill only to find out the full amount due was initiated anyway. Shame shame shame on both the place that did this and me for having faith that they would only do the authorized about. Thanks for the mysterious prompt BCOF.
|When I was young and full of rage, Irish temper don't you know, I was drawn to a nearby church. Almost always it was when my internal rage was about to explode.
When I would enter it's doors I would feel a sense of calm coming over me. I would sit in a pew, yeah you know those long pews of old, and just breathe.
This was long before I met Rhonda. The process of rage building up and me visiting this church was a "sanctuary" the Lord provided for me even before I knew Him as Savior and Lord.
Beloved a church is more than a building. It is where the Lord ministers to people, even before you know Him as Lord and Savior.
Have you ever had this feeling that you needed to enter a church? What was going on in your life at the time? How did you feel after you entered the building?

|When the world is weighing you down,
Like you gained 100 pounds.
Turn your eyes upon Jesus and pray,
Give me strength and guidance this day.
Don't let the bills, the bills, the bills outweigh,
The faith you have in the Lord to lead the way.
It's not always easy to lay it at the feet of the Lamb,
Cause we feel like it's our burden to bear. That's a sham!
The Lord said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."
That is His promise, His gospel, His truth to me and you.
Oh the weight this world does press down upon us.
Oh the comfort and joy we can take in knowing He loves us!
Oh the Weight!

|Alzheimers takes the individual away.
Leaving a struggle to regain ones thoughts, routines, life.
Zooming through the brain this insidious disease attacks.
Help us find an end to this.
Everyday more are taken from us.
In some cases it takes years to succumb to this disease.
Minds becoming prisons that locks the individual away.
Every stride made in research brings us closer to the first survivor.
Restore hope and as we walk for the first survivor,
Share from your heart, your pocket book, your blood sweat and tears to bring down this disease known as ALZHEIMERS.

Prompt: Write about "Me Time".
Wow "me time".
For me my ideal time would be able to write with ease and express gratitude to the Lord for the gift He gave me all those years ago.
Me time is rare and that's the truth.
Even as I write this I am alone because Rhonda is in the hospital.
Therefore I'm up and trying to keep our dog sane with the issue of fleas that is going on this summer.
It's clear to me that we are in a spiritual battle and at every turn we are still praising the Lord because He is truly the Great I Am.
More often than not, when I have time, I will drop in here and write a note, a reply to a blogger prompt or just read a story from someone else to keep the creative juices flowing.
Every year here in the WdC is an honor and privilege that I still want to do more of because here is my home as far as writing goes.
Me Time is important but with the responsibilities of life on every given day we have to balance it between our loved ones, our area of personal interaction with other people (work etc) and our closest family members.
You here in the WdC are a part of my Me Time and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Congrats on day 2400!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prompt: Have a Blessed Day. This is a greeting that is commonly used. What does a Blessed Day mean to you?
A day in which nothing bad happens, and good things overflow.
Blessed days are those upon which you awaken to face the new day.
Lets face it, life is not always peachy, and it is often harder than hades.
Every day we have with our loved ones is a blessed day.
Seeing your sister in the hospital fighting for her life after a brain hemorrhage,
Surely is not a blessed day, but to see her talking and aware is encouraging.
Encouraging because there is hope and you can continue praying for her.
Days of hope are blessings until in the end the battle is lost and life ends.
Day in which the sails are let out of your heart, soul, and mind.
Aware that finally you will no longer be able to communicate with your sis.
Yet going through the whole process of any giving day can have it's challenges, sometimes it's how you look at it and you can see it is a blessed day, knowing your sister is no longer suffering as of 01-09-2018.
A blessed day is many things to many people. To some it's just a shallow greeting with little significant investment in the saying of the phrase. For others that day they come to realize that life is so precious and fleeting, becomes the most blessed day of the rest of their life.
Farewell sister Ardith, you will be missed and forever we will consider every day with you a very blessed day indeed.

This morning while at work diabetic nerve pain was astronomical.
I stopped for a moment and asked the Lord to take the pain away. A few minutes later I felt an appreciable cessation of the pain level.
Even now after walking the dog and sitting down for a few minutes the pain is still less intense than it usually is after i get home from a long 10 hour shift.
Lesson learned: Don't wait to pray first. Even at 3, 4, 5 a.m. the Lord is on the case and will answer your prayers in ways you would never imagine.
