I've Been Away...

I've been away for a few days...and I forget that my blogging friends may not all know that.  I tend to be an "open book" on my facebook page, but if you aren't there with me, you may be thinking I've dropped off the face of the earth!

Well, not entirely...just flew up the country a little ways from Florida to Maine.  With the difference in temperatures and weather and scenery, it may well have been on another planet!
 I left this:

for this:  

and this:
But the real reason we made such a wild trip was for something so much more important than beautiful scenery.

Family.  Son. Daughter in law. Grandson. Son having a birthday...#4-0!  Son also has cancer. But GOD is able!!! We will not despair. 

Life is precious. Life is also short. No one on this earth is guaranteed any number of days. So we need to celebrate the life we have, while we have the time. We need to thank the Lord for each and every day. And praise Him for every victory...no matter how big or small.

"Now consider this, you who forget God, Lest I tear you in pieces, and
there be none to deliver:

Whoever offers praise glorifies Me;

and to him who orders his conduct aright

I will show the salvation of God."  Psalm 50:22-23

"Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation!"
Psalm 95:1

"Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth;
Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises....
Shout joyfully before the Lord, the King!"
Psalm 98:4 and 6b

Like I said above, "life is precious. life is also short." So, why not celebrate?  Take time to notice the beauty and majesty of God's handiwork in His creation wherever you are...regardless of life's circumstances.
Try it. You might like it.
