"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 or error, 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.

It's been far too long since I shared a post (call it "blogger-phobia") and even longer since I have taken a "Walk On Weds.unless you count the "7 Mile Miracle" as a "walk" ...

(maybe it's because it looks like this again)

And this morning, I really needed a reminder from God ... so by 7 am He sent me out yet again with 2 of my fur babies and I gazed out the back and saw this ... 1 all alone ... (not usual because most often there are 6 to the group that I feed a little later in the day) and this spoke volumes to my heart and soul ... how I am not alone, how He cares even for one, "yes, that one", how He provides, how He protects ... and how I better get boots and clothes on and put some feed out for ...

"can you spot her?"

(... shortly the other 5 joined her, then around noon another blessing ... you know the saying of spotting your first "robin" being a sign of spring, well, it is up here in frigid, cold MN but I spotted a entire flock of over 13 robins, pecking seed on a tree, fluttering and flying up and down, and even in the snow and mud in the front ... so glorious with their orange colored bellies, yet another spring reminder and delight) 

Back to the rest of my morning
...built around caring for 
my precious "Lucky" furbaby
with 3 meds
none of
she will readily take
and keeping my eyes and ears
watching that she's ok, not in pain
not messing with her stitches
along her right side mammary chain
really being a fighter and so good...

As I had already finished my You Version plans of reading the Bible and had not yet gone to First 5, I opened my email and began sorting through when my eyes caught site of this (the title of this blog post "Praying for an unbeliever") in the subject line of Daily Hope with Pastor Rick Warren ... so I clicked over to the podcast and listened, knowing that I should have shared this much earlier today on here, so "whosoever ..." might also catch this broadcast for today - although the entire series is worth listening to ... perhaps you are like me and need to spend extra time in heavy duty prayer for a loved one that desperately needs Jesus, so I invite you to listen ... and join "40 days of Prayer", you can even download message outlines or purchase the series, and also other excellent resources (but right now you can listen to the messages for free and receive his devotionals in your email like I do). Most important, let's PRAY:

"... Here is a sample prayer for unbelieving friends:
Lord, I know there are people who don’t have a relationship with you. Perhaps they know about you; they have heard your name. They just don’t know you as their personal Savior. I pray that you would give them the courage to open their heart and mind and life to you. Lord, help them with their unbelief. May they learn to trust you and love you. Use me as a bridge to their belief. Keep me faithful in prayer.” " Pastor Rick Warren, devotional 4/18/18

Rick Warren’s study “Experience God’s Power Through Prayer,” available here[JW1] .

I encourage you to visit Daily Hope!'
(And thank you for praying!!!)
I do BELIEVE in the
power of prayer

"...the stone was rolled away from the tomb..."

(Luke 24:2-9)

perhaps you have 'stones' that need to be rolled away in your life

what you need to realize is that


is in the inside

ready to help you

roll it away



Let Jesus open the 'tomb' and roll away

each stone in your way/life

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!
