It's been a long, strange winter here in Northern Michigan.
But the song of the red-winged blackbird has returned once again, bringing the message of hope and renewal that spring always brings to the earth.
I have resolved once and for all to never make New Year resolutions again. 😄
Instead I have made a list of achievable goals for the year.
Among these goals are:
*Go back to church.
I attended church today for the first time in several months. You know you've been gone too long when the pastor forgets your name!
I also finally got my computer repaired two days ago. It took them a whole ten minutes to replace the faulty Power Supply Unit; so I thought today would be a good day to get started on another goal....drum-roll....
*Get back into blogging regularly!
In fact, some of my other goals can be used in blogging, such as:
*Practice kindness and mercy toward others.
*Write more often, but using less words. (challenging for me)
*Slow down and do things with more thought and care.
*Be more organized.
*Focus more on relationships, not material possessions.
Of course I must be able to balance the time spent online in order to achieve the last goal ...
*Keep house neater, cleaner, and more organized.
I have been practicing this for a couple of weeks now, and am finding that with a little organizing and decluttering, this is becoming easier every day.
Well, that wraps this post up for today.
Thanks for visiting me here!
~Blessings & Love~

I lift up your Holy nation, Israel, and your Holy city, Jerusalem.
Protect your people, and make them to stand firm in the knowledge of your promises.
I pray that you would remind them of your everlasting covenant concerning the land that you have given them.
I pray also, for a hedge of protection to be placed around Donald Trump and his family and staff..That you would have his heart guarded against deception and to have his heart set upon Israel continuously, so that America will be called a blessed nation under God once again!
May any resolution from the UN to divide your holy city be cut down, and any effort or attempt by Iran or any other nation to attack your people, Israel, be turned back upon their own heads!
Finally, Abba, may your people who are called by your name humble themselves and pray, and seek your face, and turn from their wicked ways that you might forgive us our sin, and heal our land!
In Jesus, I ask...~Amen~
