Dancing Dog and the Moon

Well, the video has been disabled, and I can't post it on here. I will just give you the link to You-Tube. Kim Komando had a tweet about how she loved this dog. I really liked him too.

Britain's Got Talent - Gina and Chandi

I went to the drugstore last night, and when I came out, I saw this huge bright light. I thought, is that the moon or just a big light? When I saw that it was the moon, I knew I had to go home and get my camera. I live down a hill and could not see it from my house. So I became a moon chaser.

You can't really see the shining light around it very well. The white light is one in the shopping area.

I just love taking pictures of the moon and have many photos under the Label Moon.

Word Filled Wednesday

I Am the Way

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which
gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them
out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one.
-- John 10:28-30

Yard Photos

These are some pictures from my front yard.
I was surprised to see this little columbine plant blooming.

This pretty silver plant came back up.

My azaleas this year don't seem to be as pretty. It could be because of the cold weather.

Thanks for looking at my pictures.

Lift Them Up

Psalm 28:9
Lift them up for ever.

God's people need lifting up. They are very heavy by nature. They have no wings, or, if they have, they are like the dove of old which lay among the pots; and they need divine grace to make them mount on wings covered with silver, and with feathers of yellow gold. By nature sparks fly upward, but the sinful souls of men fall downward. O Lord, "lift them up for ever!" David himself said, "Unto Thee, O God, do I lift up my soul," and he here feels the necessity that other men's souls should be lifted up as well as his own. When you ask this blessing for yourself, forget not to seek it for others also. There are three ways in which God's people require to be lifted up. They require to be elevated in character. Lift them up, O Lord; do not suffer Thy people to be like the world's people! The world lieth in the wicked one; lift them out of it! The world's people are looking after silver and gold, seeking their own pleasures, and the gratification of their lusts; but, Lord, lift Thy people up above all this; keep them from being "muck-rakers," as John Bunyan calls the man who was always scraping after gold! Set thou their hearts upon their risen Lord and the heavenly heritage! Moreover, believers need to be prospered in conflict. In the battle, if they seem to fall, O Lord, be pleased to give them the victory. If the foot of the foe be upon their necks for a moment, help them to grasp the sword of the Spirit, and eventually to win the battle. Lord, lift up Thy children's spirits in the day of conflict; let them not sit in the dust, mourning for ever. Suffer not the adversary to vex them sore, and make them fret; but if they have been, like Hannah, persecuted, let them sing of the mercy of a delivering God. We may also ask our Lord to lift them up at the last! Lift them up by taking them home, lift their bodies from the tomb, and raise their souls to Thine eternal kingdom in glory.

Interesting Evening

I went to a Tea Party Rally at Wake Forest University today. My neighbors down the street were going too. I decided to go at the last minute, and made a quick sign saying:





At the Tea Party Rally, I found out that the battery in my camera was dead! I saw this on Twitter, and some pictures and a Slideshow are HERE. It was a beautiful day with lots of Patriots there. I noticed many other Seniors attending. And I was impressed with the young college Republicans who sold water and directed traffic. This is the first one I have been to, and I'm glad I showed up to take a stand.

The Blood of Jesus

Peter 1:19
The precious blood of Christ.

Standing at the foot of the cross, we see hands, and feet, and side, all distilling crimson streams of precious blood. It is "precious" because of its redeeming and atoning efficacy. By it the sins of Christ's people are atoned for; they are redeemed from under the law; they are reconciled to God, made one with Him. Christ's blood is also "precious" in its cleansing power; it "cleanseth from all sin." "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow." Through Jesus' blood there is not a spot left upon any believer, no wrinkle nor any such thing remains. O precious blood, which makes us clean, removing the stains of abundant iniquity, and permitting us to stand accepted in the Beloved, notwithstanding the many ways in which we have rebelled against our God. The blood of Christ is likewise "precious" in its preserving power. We are safe from the destroying angel under the sprinkled blood. Remember it is God's seeing the blood which is the true reason for our being spared. Here is comfort for us when the eye of faith is dim, for God's eye is still the same. The blood of Christ is "precious" also in its sanctifying influence. The same blood which justifies by taking away sin, does in its after-action, quicken the new nature and lead it onward to subdue sin and to follow out the commands of God. There is no motive for holiness so great as that which streams from the veins of Jesus. And "precious," unspeakably precious, is this blood, because it has an overcoming power. It is written, "They overcame through the blood of the Lamb." How could they do otherwise? He who fights with the precious blood of Jesus, fights with a weapon which cannot know defeat. The blood of Jesus! sin dies at its presence, death ceases to be death: heaven's gates are opened. The blood of Jesus! we shall march on, conquering and to conquer, so long as we can trust its power!

Alt Stadt and Hohensalzburg Fortress, Salzburg, Austria

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and
my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will
trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Graven Upon the Palms

Isaiah 49:16
Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.

No doubt a part of the wonder which is concentrated in the word "Behold," is excited by the unbelieving lamentation of the preceding sentence. Zion said, "The Lord hath forsaken me, and my God hath forgotten me." How amazed the divine mind seems to be at this wicked unbelief! What can be more astounding than the unfounded doubts and fears of God's favoured people? The Lord's loving word of rebuke should make us blush; He cries, "How can I have forgotten thee, when I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands? How darest thou doubt my constant remembrance, when the memorial is set upon my very flesh?" O unbelief, how strange a marvel thou art! We know not which most to wonder at, the faithfulness of God or the unbelief of His people. He keeps His promise a thousand times, and yet the next trial makes us doubt Him. He never faileth; He is never a dry well; He is never as a setting sun, a passing meteor, or a melting vapour; and yet we are as continually vexed with anxieties, molested with suspicions, and disturbed with fears, as if our God were the mirage of the desert. "Behold," is a word intended to excite admiration. Here, indeed, we have a theme for marvelling. Heaven and earth may well be astonished that rebels should obtain so great a nearness to the heart of infinite love as to be written upon the palms of His hands. "I have graven thee. "It does not say, "Thy name." The name is there, but that is not all: "I have graven thee." See the fulness of this! I have graven thy person, thine image, thy case, thy circumstances, thy sins, thy temptations, thy weaknesses, thy wants, thy works; I have graven thee, everything about thee, all that concerns thee; I have put thee altogether there. Wilt thou ever say again that thy God hath forsaken thee when He has graven thee upon His own palms?

A Lovely Spring Birthday

Today is my April Fool's day birthday, and it is such a beautiful day. It is sunny and 83 degrees outside now. Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to get up to 88! My daughter and grandson took me out to lunch. This is what my sweet grandson picked out for me.

I love the bracelet. It is purple and stretches, so I can easily get it on. The little bar says "cherish." He knows what I like. And I got some great pictures of him too.

I love these precious towels.

So I am having a wonderful day. I just won't think about my age. :o) Thank the Lord for another year.
