     When everything crumbles, God’s presence is rich, soothing salve on gaping wounds.  A broken heart is an emotional aching in your chest that happens when you are deeply grieved or disappointed due to a life circumstance.  It is encouraging to read what King David wrote in Psalm 34:18 -  The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.  He can bring triumph out of tragedy.  God’s goodness, faithfulness, and unfailing love is still there.  He can put all the broken pieces back together again. If your heart been torn apart by life circumstances or if you feel crushed under the weight of your woes, God’s presence is rich, soothing salve on gaping wounds.

I Will Instruct You

     In Spite. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. (Psalm 32:8 New International Version) - This has always been one of my favorite verses. I am so glad God loves me in spite of my weakness, disobedience, sin, etc.

Can't Dance

     Can't dance? Spell your name, in the air, with your butt. Boom! Next problem.  I actually attempted this last week while watching my grandsons…yep, spelled my name in cursive I might add.  And it was videotaped while little boys roared with laughter.  Footnote: The video will never be shared!

Birthday Cake

Someone lost his cake.....

I do hope that one of my friends would tell me if I am ever in this situation!

      My last day of school spider experience – in the powder room.  This spider, the size of an octopus, comes sauntering across the bathroom floor towards me (yes, I was sitting down).  I was sure its goal was to kill me.  I knew I should have felt sorry for it because it was missing a bunch of legs; however, it looked like a little ninja with a machete as it advanced towards me.  Don’t be a hater, but I did try to kill it (with more force than necessary).  Unfortunately I missed and it disappeared!  This spider is definitely a survivor.  Hopefully it won’t have babies before I return to school in August.
