The Light Of The World

Psalm 27:1  The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid.

As I sat in the Retina clinic yesterday with my husband – I prayed to the Lord to let my husband keep the sight in his right eye.  The last three months have been filled with eye appointments and anxiety.  Yet, I knew the Lord was there to help and comfort us.  My husband has Macular Degeneration in both eyes, but his right eye is leaking fluid at the back of the eye.  David has lost some vision in his right eye, but with treatment each month he will retain what sight he now has in that eye.  We all go through trials and tribulations in this life, but with God’s help we can endure.  Never under-estimate the power of prayer – I saw prayer save my husband’s life 6 years ago when he was in the hospital with meningitis.  I thank the Lord each day for the last six years that David has been with me.  Live each day with gusto – for we do not know if we will have tomorrow with our earthly family. Yet, we all know eternal life will  be  wonderful and beyond our expectations.

On Bended Knee

Was taking a drive through the country the other day and ran across this marvelous sign over the entrance to a ranch.

Made me think of this poem by S. D. Gordon

The greatest thing anyone can do for God and man is pray.

It is not the only thing, but the chief thing.

The great people of earth are the people who pray.

I do not mean those who talk about prayer;

Nor those who say they believe in prayer;

Nor yet those who can explain about prayer;

But, I mean those people who take the time to pray.
