4 hours sleep! How you say ah. *Pearls*

Now that I have rested I will share something beautiful with you. A pearl in the midst of this stormy sea. At times when the tide is rising high it is tempting oh so tempting to go to the rock and just wail out "Why Me?"
I came close.
Two days ago when in the dentist chair awaiting the injections. There in the sky before me was a hawk. Unusual in that I was looking over a city neighborhood. I heard My Master call to me to come away with him into the updrafts that he and that hawk were enjoying. I did so. Everything melted away while I was there. It was soon that he flew out of sight. I heard "stay with ME" pull me to him focused on the clear blue sky I endured the scraping of the bone. Remember the nerve block had not been successful at that point. I kept going away with HIM.
There in that storming time of mass endurance He came for me holding me with him within the beauty of a hawk that He himself had created that day just for me.

Today this sea a tossing with such agony and intensity again a pearl. I held my Bible and asked Him for help and comfort. I opened it up and looked down to...Present you body a living sacrifice wholly worthy and acceptable. I Ask Him to show me how.
As I sat here enduring to the 19th hour ,sleep deprived pain exhausted it became clear to me. I know this of old that I had been given a ministry to the Medical Profession. I remembered who I am. I began to turn my eye to intercession for the Doctor, his office staff and their offices. Those other patients in the building. Mainly the doctor.
After all was done, he sat down on a folding chair and said that he was about ready to cry. It hurt him to cause others such pain. He shared how sorry he was that it was hurting so bad. He and his assistant both came and sat down and rested a few moments. I offered them kindness, gratitude and love. They offered me counsel and support. We were in unity no animosity no offense no hostility. Only peace.
It is not all about us folks.
So rarely has it ever been for me. We are rich through the pearl. For me, in friction accomplished in the death (of the oyster)I lived,The Pearl it gives such perfect beauty to capture our focus.

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
