I have a song ringing in my head this morning. I'm just going to leave you with chapter and verse and a blast from the past. 46 The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

I will bless the Eternal, whose wise teaching orchestrates my days and centers my mind at night. Psalm 16:7 If you asked me what most often stops me praying, doing things I want to do, feeling at peace or keeps me awake I would say thoughts.

This morning I was reading Psalm 4 and the first verse made me stop and … Continue reading Re-Viewed
As I set off to walk the dog at 6:07 am this morning (I walk while Mark's in the shower - it kills several birds with one stone: I am out of bed and active getting some exercise, I am up and wide awake when we come to pray together, and I get to start … Continue reading Call Him Good
