I do believe…..

This has to be the longest period of time that this blog has been without a post since it was created 3 years ago.

The verses will be back up and running soon. :)

Of course, y’all know you have the LORD’s Word in your heart and heads, and His holy Spirit within you. It’s not like you need these verses. You already have them with you, always :) That was a promise from God, and He always keeps His promises.

LORD, I ask that You bless every one reading this, and every one who isn’t reading this :)

  1. Never worry about not posting though, we will all be here whenever you’re ready to post again. I saw your comment about a health issue and a trip – I really do hope you managed to have a small break away and make some nice memories, and I really, really hope all’s okay with your health (or as good as can be – you know what I mean). Thinking of you, Margaret. Be well.  ♥

    1. Thank you Caz. Yes, I did get to make some memories. I am hoping to get a post up about it soon but don’t know when. I haven’t even typed up the Bible verses that are backed up. That will be done first, then the post on my trip. I am just worn out Caz. When this stuff hits it is just debilitating. It took me all morning to clean the bathroom and bedroom. It isn’t even messy just the normal cleaning, dusting, sweeping, moping, sanitizing stuff that shouldn’t take that long. But I feel like I have ran a marathon. The LORD blessed me though. Right before the trip I felt great, and during the trip lots of energy. That was a blessing. How are things going with you, my friend?

      1. Thank you for asking but don’t worry about me. I’m amazed you’ve managed to respond to comments here, and I/we all appreciate that and everything you’re able to post on your blog, whenever you are able to. It sounds like you need to slow down, take a breather and recuperate, Margaret. A trip to the supermarket wears me down to nothing so I can only imagine what a proper trip does! Rest my friend, take things slowly, no rush, focus on you  ♥ xxxx

      2. Not worried always have faith that you are doing the best you are able to do. But I like to hear it :) :) LOL at amazing. I didn’t feel so amazing when I had to lay down in the floor in the middle of sweeping and take a rest haha. It is what it is. I am trying to do better about it. Doing things makes me feel less helpless about this situation. If that makes sense but I have been taking more rest/naps even if I can’t sleep I will lay down and just relax, close my eyes.

  2. Hi miss Margaret,
    I noticed that you hadn’t posted in a while, and I thought it was either…you wanted a break from the blog world, or you were busy globe trotting with your husband.

    Have y’all been doing okay with the new residence and situation?

    May God bless you and your family sister. 🙂

    1. Not going to lie Brother, I had been praying about the blog. With all the changes going on, I didn’t know if it was something that could be kept up with properly. Having said that, the LORD has a way giving us ways of trying things out, doesn’t He? My health acted up, so the blog wasn’t an option. Then we did take a trip, so again the blog wasn’t an option.

      Everything is good with the new place. It’s comfy. I’m still getting use to the “all” of it all haha. Not use to so much, in every direction. Thats not a bad thing, just different.

      Thank the LORD for His blessings and ask Him to continue to bless you and your family as well.

      How are things with you? How is Melissa, and the family? How are things at work?


      1. Hi sister, good mornin to you.
        Me and Melissa are fine, and we are thankful for the many blessings that the Lord gives us.

        Maybe consider this:

        Make a post that you’re going to step away from your blog for a while to see where God leads you about continuing it or not.

        That way you can stay gone for months or years, without having to field constant questions about what happened to you.

        And if you ever feel led to return, your site will still be there to pick up where you left off.

        And in the interim, the verses that you’ve already posted will still be there to minister to whoever reads them.

        God bless you.

      2. It’s great to hear y’all are doing well :)

        I did consider that. I have been talking to the LORD about it for a couple of weeks now. He keeps bringing me back. He keeps giving me verses. I have a whole back log of them I need to type up. :) :) Thank you so much for thinking of me, and for always being so kind, and honest with your thoughts. It is really appreciated Brother :)

      1. Glad to have you back. Still home with vertigo, but it seems to be letting up a little. These weather fronts get me and they are numerous this winter.

      2. I was hoping things were easing off. Vertigo is the worst. I have felt on the edge of it for weeks now too, if that makes sense. Feeling like I am on a boat, and the storm is making the water rough but the worst of it isn’t hit yet. The before feeling. I am sure you know what I mean. But not sure if I am wording it right :) Praying you get relief soon.

      3. Oh, I know that feeling of waiting for vertigo to hit you right between the eyes, My whole life has been spent with some type of dizziness. Doctors have never figured my dizziness out. Getting in a real boat would really do me in. Guess we all have our burdens to bear. Would like to get well enough to go back to church.

      4. Living at the beach all my life, I didn’t figure out until I was in my teens that boats are triggers. Even walking down a few stair steps, getting out of bed, or turning around are triggers but those are a part of life. Boats are a choice. It’s the closest thing I know to explain how it feels. Unlike you, who knows that terrible feeling, most people don’t. My doctor is great but he isn’t a specialist. Funny(or not so much) the “specialist” don’t seem to know anything either, do they? One would think with all these medical advancements, they don’t know what causes these things.

      5. Specialists certainly have never figured my dizzy problems out. You know the feeling where you stand on the beach sand and a small wave drifts in and washes the sand from beneath your feet – well I can stand on the floor and get that same feeling without even moving. I lay down and float as if I were in a boat. There is a big long name for the floating dizziness – Mal de Debarquement Syndrome. Knowing the name does not help the doctors at all.

      1. Awww. :) <3

        Things are okay. :) I'm finally feeling like posting again, haha. I said a bit on the other comment, but besides that, it's been going okay. :) I knew it was coming and it was still hard to lose Angel. 15 1/2 years is pretty old for a cat and I'm glad to have had her that long. <3

      2. I just read about Angel in your other comment. :( :( It is a blessing to be friends with a fuzzy little friend for that long, and even if we know it is near, it still is hard thing to deal with. You have the right attitude, and God rewards that. You give Him the glory and the thanks and put your trust in Him. As I said to you, there is nothing any one can say in times like these that will make it all better but if you need anything, I am here.

      3. Yes, it is a blessing. :) And yes, hard to deal with. I lost five cats one year (from the wild cat population I took in) but I always had her to cuddle and that made me feel better. Now she’s gone.

        I had two cats I could pick up and cuddle. One was Angel and the other was Monkey from the wild cat population. She died on Black Friday. Losing them both close together was extra hard. Sketcher, another from that population, wants to be lovable and she truly is, but I can’t pick her up and cuddle. The others are mostly tame but choose not to interact much. I also have to keep in mind that all except Jackie are over 9 years old so… yeah. It’s hard.

        I would cuddle Jackie but I have no desire to bleed. 😂 I tried earlier today and she growled at me like a dog. I put her back on the floor quick.

        <3 Thanks. :)

      4. Awww sweet Grace. What a blessing you are to those little creatures of God that otherwise might have no one to care for them. I just commented to you and won’t repeat it hear but I am praying for you. The LORD will give you what you need to help you get through this. Nothing will replace Angel but she will always be with you. The LORD will make sure of that. :)

  3. Me dearest!!! 💙💙 You’ve been in my prayers daily! I’m excited to hear how the trip was, but I’ll wait for the post. How are you otherwise?

    Yes, we have the Word in our hearts, but when you post the verses, they’re like little reminders for me and something to meditate on throughout the day. Happy to see you here again! 💙

    1. God loves us so much, and reading your words is another reminder of that. :) :) Praise the LORD and thank you for your prayers me love they are worth more than all the riches in the world :)

      The trip was amazing. I did something that I have never done. Ok I guess several things that I’ve never done. BUT the one thing was going to another country and walking the a whole city. Most of it anyway :) All by myself. Just exploring and looking at everything. Everything was so beautiful, and old. It was cold but I didn’t care.

      I was so thankful the LORD gave me the courage, and with my health issue causing me to be so exhausted all the time, it was a blessing that it wasn’t acting up while I was there. Praise the LORD.

      I’m going to try and catch up on your post tomorrow :) I have missed reading everything :) It will be a nice treat :) How are things with you?

      1. Amen! He certainly does and I am very humbled at that thought. You’re welcome. 💙

        I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the trip! That sounds like a fun experience and I am happy that you were able to enjoy it.

        Thank God for both small and big mercies! I’m glad to hear that nothing hindered your trip. God wanted you to have this trip.

        Take your time, me dearest. You just got back. Get some rest first before you attempt any reading on here. I am doing well. Happier lately and trusting God with everything. May He continue to bless you. 💙

      2. I will have to take time because hubby decided we were going on an adventure today. I say that playfully because I would much rather just stayed in and relaxed a little more. I feel my energy level going down, and a relaxing day of catching up on your blog would have been perfect! But he was trying to do something good, so it is hard to say no to that :) Ahhh it gives me something relaxing to look forward to though :)

      3. Hahaha well I call them adventures because hubby likes dragging me out to do stuff that isn’t my favourite. He tricks me sometimes too. Like he’ll pick something I like to do then once we are out he will say, “while we are out let’s run by (pick anywhere I would not have come if he had told me in advance)” hahaha BUT I love him and we always have fun so it was good :)

  4. Amen…..Even though I know them, and have them in my heart I still enjoy reading them when you post them. They may either lift me up on that day or they may prick my conscious of something. So I look forward to seeing them again.

    1. You are so kind Sister. It is good hearing your too. I was reading a few of your post. AND the verses you posted. I was in Galatians, actually just finished it :) It is so miraculous how the LORD keeps us entwined. By us, not just you and me but all of His children. I do not see it as coincidence that not only were we reading Galatians but other blogs as well as I was reading Daniel and so are other bloggers I read. Sorry I am rambling but it always amazes me how God keeps amazing me hahaha :) :)


    1. I am doing good Yassy. I had a little health issue but nothing life threatening :) also went on a trip. I’m going to try and get the pictures up and do a little post about my travel. I’ll be catching up with your blog soon. I am sure you have written something spectacular in the past 2 weeks :)

      1. That is good news. I will keep you and your husband in my prayers that you stay safe, healthy and happy in your new home away from home. Now you have two homes, the one you left behind that will always be there with family, friends and love ones waiting for you and the new home you are making together, creating new friends and spreading kindness (which I know you are) where ever you step. God puts us in certain places at certain times for a reason…someone there in your new environment must need some kindness right now.
