"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."~from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

APOLOGY to READERS who followed a SEARCH to HERE & didn't find it

On July 18, 2017, I drafted almost 3000 blog posts that I had published since 2008 when I began blogging, rather than edit each one. So if you clicked here from somewhere else and ended up with the post unavailable, I am sorry but this is why. It'd be too much work for me to go back and fix them. There's an explanation on 7/19/17 as I'm still learning.

As I glance over these PROMISES for August, in advance, and special days are significant for me in August, I can't help but look forward to the final one for August 31st, read the devotional & see what beautiful image is used by 365promises from Barry Adams. His gift of photography & writing from the Father's heart has blessed me for many years, since I first encountered this website while in Mexico.

I'm sorry for the delay of a week in posting this. {I'm doing this on August 8th but scheduling back on the date I had hoped to share these on August 1st.} Once again, issues with Blogger and changes now on new interface when I just want to remain with the old one, the one I have and that I'm able to use without added frustration, because I am accustomed to it finally. So of course, they want us all to change to their new Blogger interface, which according to their notice on our blogger dashboard ... will become the default for all users. Since, my blog posts already have been less, this change may cause me to finally 'hang it up' as so many of my blogger friends have done.

This saddens me greatly because my hope in this old age was that I might still encourage or inspire by what I share and I still wanted to aspire to writing more of my story through His story in my life, writing from my heart, maybe developing into an actual writer/author some day. Years ago, I thought that might be my direction; and as an elementary teacher, I was leaning toward thinking I'd write children's book(s)... but that had changed. Perhaps I don't have the gift to write however I do enjoy writing blogs and the platform opportunity that Blogger (WordPress, or others) make available to all of us, to publish our thoughts, our stories, and write just about anything as it flows or comes to us, yet for me, here on this blog, that has become sharing about Jesus, my passion and my mission.

As I am typing this, a song came up on my song playlist just now by Jesus Culture featuring Bryan & Katie Torwalt




So I decided that God wants me to share this
Here and Now
since
PROMISE
after all is my word
in
2020

"I found You in the middle of my Mess ..."
{aMazing Grace - Mazes, Messes, Miracles}

"I will prophesy Your Promise. I believe You, God
because You finish what You start.
I will trust You with the process..."

Yes, LORD ... clinging to Your Promises!

"Speak to me, I'm Listening"
{another favorite currently}

On August 1st (one of those significant days), I watched as the "heavens declared His glory" that day and "revealed His handiwork" in a trip made to western Minnesota, as the clouds broke forth with a downpour, very briefly ... and upon our return, all of the deer family were waiting out back. It's always such a confirmation to me when God delights my heart with their appearance just at the right time or other small things, in nature or my daily life reminding me 'in everything' to give thanks to Him. The photos from this day are in my iPhone, which isn't helpful when I have to use the main computer to blog ... so you'll have to just imagine two young fawns and two other deer and God, in the rain. Rainbows of His Promise(s) and His Whispers of such aMazing Grace & Love!



To my faithful visitors;
all of you who spend your valuable time here with me
I do appreciate you so much!

Thank you for taking your time to visit!

Love, Sweet blessings & Hugs!

DIOS TE BENDIGA
GOD BLESS YOU

always
