What’s happening – February 2019

Psalm 18:1

“I love You, O Lord, my strength.”
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

First, please forgive me for neglecting your blogs! I hope to get back to reading – and writing – soon. At one point I was subscribed to more than 80 blogs and had over 6000 email notifications waiting for me. 

Here are some elements of my life right now:

My loving husband’s health is stable, praise God! Tom will be 77 in April.

I’ve been cat-sitting our neighbor’s cat – Oscar. Oscar is 7 months old and has given me my first experience of caring for a feline. He is affectionate, playful, and very quick! Please pray for his owner, Diana. 

Our skittish dog Greta has gone with me to visit Oscar. Greta is afraid of him. He sometimes shows her affection and at other times hides and then charges her. He really really wants to be friends. Poor Oscar! When Greta and I visited yesterday she stood with her back to the room and her snout in the corner by the door. 

I just finished a good book – “the End Times made simple.” The author, Samuel E. Waldron of Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary in Kentucky, is an amillennialist. Dr. Waldron explains the issues with clarity, reasoning well from the Scriptures, and exalts the Lord Jesus Christ in everything. the End Times Made Simple by Samuel E. Waldron 2

God bless you for reading this!

  1. Maria, glad your husband is doing well and I prayed for your neighbor, Diana. I laughed at your descriptions of Greta visiting Oscar. Our labradoodle, Gracie, is eleven years old and pretty highstrung and wants no part of her one-year-old, playful nephew, our son’s pitbull, Louie.

  2. I know what you mean about catching up with the “blogmails,” as I call them. Sometimes I am aghast at how much reading and time blogging requires to really make a go of it and stay connected.
    Thank you for the update. It’s nice to get a peek into your world. Pets are the best for comfort and cuddling and nurturing.

  3. Blogging can certainly become a big part of what we offer up of self to God. At times I wonder if the people we reach are the people who really need reaching. But being involved with praying with committed believers is a good thing. Thank you Lord for working through our prayers. Thanks for touching Tom through prayer. Maybe we should pray and agree together that God would use each of our posts to reach those who will benefit most from each one. There certainly are others who need to hear what God stirs in each of us. Lord I pray that these posts that you lead us in, will become a magnet for those who need to hear them. Thank you lord for these fellow bloggers and the time they committ to you.

  4. My dear sister, I prayed for you, your husband, and Diana. I will certainly continue to do so. It’s always a treasure to see a post from you. I hope your week is fruitful, and that Oscar and Greta can get along in the future. Pets are a joy, if not an opportunity for patience 🙂
