Greetings and Joy in Abundance!

Ever wonder why some people seem to be floating through life and others stumble?

I wonder this, and seek to find ways to float instead of stumble. Maybe you would like to join me in this search.

Seeking a closer relationship with God seems to allow my life to float along a little easier.

Phillipians 4:5-6 tells us to reveal our gentleness outwardly, that God is near and that we should not be anxious about anything, but through prayer and petition, we should thankfully approach the Lord with our concerns.

As a high energy person, my anxiety can run high. I am constantly seeking ways to leave my concerns at the foot of the cross.

Random? Probably not.

Persistence, is it?

This morning, I spent some time cleaning our small camper space.  After I was done, I sat down to enjoy a bit of reading with my coffee, and my Buddy whoofed at me.  He doesn't woof, he whoofs.  Almost whispering, he just lets you know he needs your attention.  It's not a loud bark, just a whispered whoof.  He want's to go for a walk, he is saying. 

I just sat down.  It is not my desire to go for a long walk at this point, but I know I must.  So, I ask him to wait just a minute, and he whoofs again.  He now has whoofed at least four times, and I know that he will not leave me alone until I comply with his request. 

It is just like the woman who comes to the judge in the Bible.  She continues to come over and over asking for her request to be granted.  She will not relent.  Her persistence is rewarded, as Buddy's will be.

We must remember that we are children of God and we must not be derailed from the task which has been put before us.  It is never an easy road, and we don't always want to do it, but it MUST be done, and we have been chosen to do it.  Keep on keepin' on...push forward and be persistent.  We are blessed to be a blessing...let's be that blessing today! 

God's peace be with you on this weekend when we remember those who have given their life for us to be free to type our thoughts...for us to be free to persist in our faith and our freedom.  Thank you to my ancestors, your ancestors and those who have fought the good fight to keep our freedom to be who we are and allow God to be the Lord of our lives!
