Shine on Us

Things are kinda painful right now...

at church this morning, the worship leader led us in this song... the line I clung to was "in the darkest night ..." that's where I feel I am right now. But I KNOW God is faithful and His light will shine on me, His grace will fall on me, His love will come over me.

Here is Avalon singing it (I love this group)

Oh to have the life of a cat

I have been watching Kaya lately and noticing where and how she sleeps. I thought it was 'blog-worthy'... besides, nothing else to do.

next to me while I read:

On the coffee table, she looks so relaxed:

under the end table, her face looks smooshed:

on the computer desk, usually when I am trying to use the computer, like right now:

The next time Steph visits, we'll have to do some stuff on Bella. She now knows how to 'give high five'. ha ha

I am cleaning out my room and going through PILES of stuff. I ran into a piece of paper that spoke volumes. I think I must have gotten it from Linda's church or SS class as it was in a bag with things from our trip LAST New Years. (It's been a while since I cleaned my room I guess)
I think it is very appropriate, at least for me and my family.
It's that time of year when we look back at how things have gone. The achievements, the mistakes, the 'what if's'.... I guess God needed to remind me that I can't linger in the past or worry about the future...

I was regetting The Past and fearing The Future.
Suddenly my Lord was speaking: My Name Is I AM!!
He paused, I waited. He continued:
When you live in The Past with it's mistakes and regrets, it is hard.
I am not there. My name is not I Was.
When you live in The Future with it's problems and fears, it is hard.
I am not there. My name is not I Will Be.
When you live in this moment, I Am HERE to help you.
My Name Is I AM!!
