It's a little after midnight and I'm wide awake....thinking.
What do you say when people ask, "How are you?"
Do they mean, "how is my life going?" or "how am I feeling?" or maybe even, "how is my spiritual life?"
I started this blog mostly because my family wanted to know how I am doing...maybe in all of the ways above.
A year or two ago, I was interested in reading a book by a man who knew he was dying. I wanted to see if he practiced what he preached to the end...and he did. (He had a marvelous faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, and loved the Word!) I gave the book away to a man whose family felt he was going to die soon, and it was before I knew this breast cancer had come back in my spine. (I wish I had kept it--I think that man is going to outlive me!) I know we all live in a dying world, and so unless the Lord comes first, we will all be at death's door one day.
I am so blessed by love shown to me by many friends, brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, and by my family. Above even that, I have a husband, who at 90 years of age, still provides and cares for his "young" wife, and loves her! (Sometime I'll have to write about how God definitely led us to marry, even though he was 20 years my senior, and shorter than this tall one here!)
Well, I'll quit rambling, and see if I can put into practice a verse I often quote to myself when laying down at night. It is from Psalm 4 and says, "I will both lay me down, and sleep, for Thou Lord only makest me to dwell in safety" (I learned it in the King James Version).
