"The everlasting God is your place of safety, 
and his arms will hold you up forever... ."
~ Deuteronomy 33:27 ~

" The soul hardly ever realizes it, 
but whether he is a believer or not,
his loneliness is really a homesickness for God."
~ Hubert van Zeller 

"Learn first that I [Jesus] know what loneliness, desertion and solitude mean. Learn that every act of yours of faithfulness is a comfort to My Heart. Learn too that it was to those deserters I gave the task of bringing My Message to mankind. To those deserters, those fearful ones, I gave My Power to heal, to raise to life.
Earth's successes are not the ones I use for the great work of My Kingdom. "They all forsook Him and fled." Learn My tender understanding and pardon of human frailty. Not until man has failed has he learnt true humility. And it is only the humble who can inherit the earth."
~ God Calling ~

"If you're lonely when you're alone, you're in bad company." ~ Sartre ~

"Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely, and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work." ~ Mother Teresa ~

"You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with." ~ Wayne Dyer ~

"Some Christians try to go to heaven alone, in solitude. But believers are not compared to bears or lions or other animals that wander alone. Those who belong to Christ are sheep in this respect, that they love to get together. Sheep go in flocks, and so do God's people." ~ C. H. Spurgeon ~

"It is not darkness you are going to, for God is light. 
It is not lonely, for Christ is with you. 
It is not unknown country, for Christ is there.
~ Charles Kingsley

"In any trial, in any bitter situation, you are not alone, you are not helpless, you are not a victim. You have a tree, a cross, shown to you by the Sovereign God of Calvary. Whatever the trial or temptation, it is not more than you can bear. It is bearable. It can be handled. You can know as Joseph knew, "You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive" (Genesis 50:20)." ~ Kay Arthur ~

"Friendship needs no words - it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness."
~ Dag Hammarskjold

"Look for yourself, and you will find loneliness and despair. 
But look for Christ and you will find Him and everything else." 
~ C. S. Lewis

"There are many things that God does not fix precisely because He loves us. Instead of extracting us from the problem, He calls us. In our sorrow or loneliness or pain He calls us-"This is a necessary part of the journey. Even if it is the roughest part, it is only a part, and it will not last the whole long way. Remember where I am leading you. Remember what you will find at the end-a home and a haven and a heaven." ~ Elisabeth Elliott ~

"If you feel a great loneliness and a deep longing for human contact, you have to be extremely discerning...and ask yourself whether this situation is truly God given. Because where God wants you to be, God holds you safe and gives you peace, even when there is pain. To live a disciplined life is to live in such a way that you want only to be where God is with you. The more deeply you live your spiritual life, the easier it will be to discern the difference between living with God and living without God, and the easier it will be to move away from the places where God is no longer with you."
~ Henri J. M. Nouwen ~

"Loneliness comes over us sometimes as a sudden tide. It is one of the terms of our humanness, and, in a sense, therefore, incurable. Yet I have found peace in my loneliest times not only through acceptance of the situation, but through making it an offering to God, who can transfigure it into something for the good of others." ~ Elisabeth Elliott ~ 

"It is so much easier to pray for a bore than to go and see one." ~
  C. S. Lewis

"Deep within there is a glorious and terrible empty space - loneliness. It is out of sight, pushing us to our best and to our worst. Behind every effort to make a friend - Behind ambition - Behind pride - Behind gossip - Behind memories of your mother's kitchen - Loneliness. We were created with the space carefully planted in our hearts. God created us with the loneliness that moves the heart to others, the loneliness that moves the heart at last to God. It is what moves us to become whole."
~ David Kidd ~
"When we are broken,
the Light can come in"

"If your life is empty, fill it with Christ."
~ Woodrow Kroll ~

"Earth has no words 
that can convey the holy calm
of a soul leaning on Jesus."
~ C. H. Spurgeon

"Jesus said, "Don't let your hearts be troubled.
Trust in God, and trust in me."
~ John 14:1 ~

"I will not forget you.
See, I have written your name
 on the palms of my hands... ."

"since God in faithfulness remembers us,
we by faith must remember God."

"I made you.
Trust me.
I know what I'm doing."
~ love, God ~

"God didn't bring you out to deep waters to drown you, 
He brought you here because your enemies can't swim!"
~ Pastor Steven Furtick ~

The struggle is part of your story; 
God has a plan for your good and His glory.

"I'm a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world."
~ Mother Teresa ~ 

God says NO to redirect, not to reject.

"We say then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken." ~ Amy Carmichael

"I give them eternal life,
and they shall never perish;
no one will snatch them
out of my hand."

"Direct my footsteps according to your Word;
let no sin rule over me."
~ Psalm 119:133 ~

Love the sinner, 
Hate the sin.

"Other religions deal with sins; 
the Bible alone deals with sin."
~ Oswald Chambers

"There's one thing we need above everything else; it's something we don't talk about these days. We need a mighty avalanche of conviction of sin. ... We're living in an unprecedented day (when) evil is no longer evil. We've changed the terminology -- iniquity is now infirmity; wickedness is now weakness; devilry is now deficiency." ~ Leonard Ravenhill ~

"When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him. When a man is getting worse he understands his own badness less and less. A moderately bad man knows he is not very good: a thoroughly bad man thinks he is all right. This is common sense, really. You understand sleep when you are awake, not while you are sleeping. You can see mistakes in arithmetic when your mind is working properly: while you are making them you cannot see them. You can understand the nature of drunkenness when you are sober, not when you are drunk. Good people know about both good and evil: bad people do not know about either."
~ C. S. Lewis

"The temptation of the age is to look good without being good." 
~ Brennan Manning

"Men do not differ much about what things they call evils;
the differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable."
~ G. K. Chesterton ~

"Whatever weakens your reason,
impairs the tenderness of your conscience,
obscures your sense of God,
or takes off the relish for spiritual things
then it is sin for you however
innocent it may be in itself."
~ Suzanna Wesley ~

"Primarily, God is not bound to punish sin; He is bound to destroy sin. The only vengeance worth having on sin is to make the sinner himself its executioner." ~ George MacDonald

"As the salt flavors every drop in the Atlantic, so does sin affect every atom of our nature. It is so sadly there, so abundantly there, that if you cannot detect it, you are deceived."
~ C. H. Spurgeon

"You do not really care for God's mercy or His comfort either, so long as you live in any sin. And it is well that you do not; for you can have neither. Your peace will be like a river, when you put away your sin; but not one word of true peace, not one drop of true comfort, can you have till then."
~ Alexander Whyte ~

"You'll never be able to speak against sin
if you're entertained by it."
~ John Muncee

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, not abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God."

"And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, 
who will feed you with knowledge and understanding."

"A good sermon is not like a club that beats upon the will
but like a sword that cuts to the heart."

"It was strictly forbidden to preach to other prisoners. It was understood that whoever was caught doing this received a severe beating. A number of us decided to pay the price for the privilege of preaching, so we accepted their [the communists'] terms. It was a deal; we preached and they beat us. We were happy preaching. They were happy beating us, so everyone was happy." ~ Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured for Christ N/E ~  (click on Pastor Wurmbrand's name and listen)

"It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching."
~ Francis of Assisi ~

"When you are possessed by evil spirits, it is crafty manipulations that you follow; but when you are possessed by the Holy Spirit of God, it is wise discretion you pursue!" ~ Israelmore Ayivor ~

"The backslider likes the preaching that wouldn't hit the side of a house, while the real disciple is delighted when the truth brings him to his knees." ~ Billy Sunday ~

"I preached as never sure to preach again,
and as a dying man to dying men."
~ Richard Baxter

"We [pastors] have a balance to strike--not to preach Christ without preaching the text, and not to preach the text without preaching Christ." ~ Tim Keller ~

"Cartooning is preaching. And I think we have a right to do some preaching. I hate shallow humor. I hate shallow religious humor, I hate shallow sports humor, I hate shallowness of any kind." ~ Charles M. Schultz ~

"A man who first tried to guess 'what the public wants', and then preached that as Christianity because the public wants it, would be a pretty mixture of fool and knave." ~ C. S. Lewis ~

"It is the business of a virtuous clergy to censure vice in every appearance of it."
~ Patrick Henry ~

"The preacher is not a chef; he's a waiter. 
God doesn't want you to make the meal;
He just wants you to deliver it to the table without messing it up.
That's all."
~ John MacArthur

"The waters of good preaching are always running downhill to the stream of Christ, who He is, and how He has loved us." ~ David Mathis ~

"The test of a preacher is that his congregation goes away saying, not 'What a lovely sermon,' but 'I will do something!'"...  ~ Francis de Sales ~

"The gospel-logic moves [in a sermon are]: 'Here's what you must do,' then "Here's why you can't do it,' then 'Here's the one who did it for you,' and finally 'Here's how faith in Him enables you to do it too.' Following this logic in a sermon means that often you bring in practical application in more than one place." ~ Tim Keller ~

"If I had only one sermon to preach
 it would be a sermon against pride." 
~ G. K. Chesterton ~

"If Jesus preached the same message minister's preach today, 
He would have never been crucified."
~ Leonard Ravenhill

"Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth." ~ John Wesley ~

"The preaching of Christ is the whip that flogs the devil. The preaching of Christ is the thunderbolt, the sound of which makes all hell shake." ~ Charles Spurgeon ~

"God has ordained that our preaching become deeper and more winsome as we are broken, humbled, and made low and desperately dependent on grace by the trials of our lives." ~ John Piper ~

"Brothers, pray for us."

Please pray ~ for pastors and ministers preaching Biblical truths ~ for those pastors and ministers preaching milksop ~ for those in Biblical ministry around the world ~ October is Clergy Appreciation Month - a good pastor stands in the gap between the congregation and hell. Likewise, a praying congregation stands in the gap between the pastor and hell. My suggestion to show your Pastor he is appreciated...a gift card to a nice restaurant so his family can benefit. Unless your Pastor is not married, the family is in service to God. How lovely for the spouse to also be shown your gratitude ~

I've found my HaPpY Place!

My favorite new restaurant is the Happy Cafe in downtown Blackstone in southside Virginia. Blackstone is a small town, about 3650 people, in Nottoway County which has fewer than 16,000 people. As soon as I entered the Happy Cafe and heard jazz playing, I knew I'd like it. The food is delicious and made on-site; their bread pudding with ice cream is incredible! I used to make bread pudding and theirs is better than mine...I'm happy to say because now I can have it whenever I want it...delish!

Some of you have heard me say or seen written on this blog, "I spent the best one-third of my life on Thistle Cove Farm in southwest Virginia." It's true; it was on that little piece of consecrated land I found my calling, Dave and I grew our friendship into love, Dave made his peace with God, God showed me His new plan for my life (although not quite as soon as I would have liked! --laughing--) and so much more.

There are new owners of the farm; I wish them well and hope they'll be as happy and contented as we were. I said to them, "You can run the farm or you can run the roads but you can't run both. For good or ill, this farm is your visual testimony as to your stewardship of what God has allowed you to have." Dave and I found that farm in terrible shape and other than the fields needing mowing, I left it in fabulous shape...mostly restored house, restored barns and outbuildings, new fences, new garage...the list goes on and on. I counted it all joy to do the work required there and thank God for His allowing Dave and I stewardship.

Last week Beloved Sistah asked, "Do you miss the other place?" I smiled and said, "Not in the least bit! God brought me to a place where He knew I was ready, without hesitation, to close that season of life and move to the next. This has been a wonderful change and a wonderful new beginning."

~ new location, same glorious name! ~

About five months after Dave died, I had a meltdown where I collapsed on the kitchen floor, tears flooding my face, sobbing uncontrollably while dogs huddled around giving what comfort they could. Actually, they were panicked as well...Sam had watched as Melvin performed CPR on Dave and Sam still has panic attacks when he thinks I'm leaving (it's as if he's afraid I won't come back) and when I return, he can't contain his joy. I do wonder what goes on in his little mind...? Anyway, that was the moment I considered taking my life. It wasn't so much I wanted to be with Dave, it was more I was so totally overwhelmed, despondent and had no idea of what to do, how to do it, when, etc. With all my heart I believe God whispered to me, "Sandra, if you do take your own life, you'll miss all the blessings I have for you." I could not conceive of blessings, not in the midst of such horrible grief but I knew (know) God can be trusted. He has a plan...a plan for my good and His glory so I made the decision to "do the next thing" and that's what I've done since. I've done the next thing and the next and the next... I come from sturdy stock and the family stories I've grown up with would curl your hair. I've watched as Aunts and Grandmothers were left widows, sometimes in horrific circumstances, yet they "did the next thing". Never was a tainted word associated with them, they had little except their dignity and honor yet kept both unscathed.

~ view of our (God and me) pond ~

Great Aunt Effie was left a widow with 13 children when, one September, Great Uncle James was, quite literally, blown up while working on the railroad. She did other people's laundry for ten cents a day to keep food on the table, clothes on her children and a roof over their heads. James and Granddaddy were working together, when the dynamite cap went off, Great Uncle James was killed instantly with little to be found except bits and pieces. Granddaddy was blown out of his overalls, and found wandering in total shock, so the newspaper article said, half mile down the track. His eye was blown out so he had a glass eye made and used that in the socket; he delighted in taking it out, and showing it to me but I can't remember if I screamed or laughed. I do remember extreme awe he was able to do such a thing. Daddy told me more of the story when he and I were recently at the WV family cabin: When Uncle Clarence, Daddy's oldest brother was hunting a few months later, his dog scruffled around in the leaves and came up with Great Uncle James' hand. Daddy said Uncle Clarence did the only thing he could do, he buried the hand and, remembering Uncle Clarence as a fine Christian man, he said a few words of prayer.

~ view of pond with house in background ~

That story and so many more are part of my marrow, reminding me I come from sturdy stock, people who came to the New World almost two hundred years before the great famine in search of a better life. God has a plan that is, usually, totally beyond (my) comprehension. His ways are not our ways but I choose to trust Him and that brings me to this new season in life...less than thirty miles from parents, siblings and nephew with a good church even closer and a wonderful restaurant within walking distance of the church. Mercy me...can it get any better?! 

I'm happiest in smaller, rural communities and this is still the case. Monday through Friday, Steve Winn hosts Coffee Chat at WSVS Radio where Lester Flat and Earl Scruggs got their start. Click here to see Steve (in his Hokies shirt!) and to hear him promoting vacuum cleaners. Think home town sweetness when you think Coffee Chat; folks call in and Steve knows so many of their voices, calls them by name, asks about them/their spouse and families and off they go! Some call to sell things, some call to update him on their latest hospital visit including aches, pains and operations, others call just to say hello, some call to say, "I just made some stew and will bring you some later on today." Quite simply, it's small town Americana at its absolute best!

~ Beloved Sistah, et al, on the steps at my new home ~

I hadn't moved in when Beloved Sistah said, "Dustin is bringing his family here the end of August." I replied, "Oh, I hope I get a chance to see them." She grinned and said, "You will; we're all meeting here for lunch on Sunday." How glorious! We had a grand time...Mom, Dad, my brother/wife, my sister/husband, two sons with wives/ was incredible and the first time we've all been together in quite a while. Cherish those time...simply cherish those times!

My views haven't change's still farm country with round bales being put up and corn silage being cut. With the help of Daniel, Robbie, Jimmy, Tommy, Christopher, Chloe, GraceAnn, Mandy and Joe, as well as the Tazewell Mennonite community, I was moved lock, stock and barrel. Steve, my brother, and Walt, my brother-in-law, helped once I arrived in Southside VA. A couple of days, Mom and Dad came, bringing lunch and that was gratefully received and eaten. Some things were meant to be left behind in southwest VA but I'm finding they were packed and moved here. So be it. At the end it was crazy hectic and I'm grateful to those folks for doing the hard work of moving me. My Beloved Sistah has spent many days, helping unpack boxes, re-arrange basement and barn but there are still boxes to unpack. I'm in giveaway mode and have many goodies to bestow on someone or a thrift store. I love where I live and foresee many happy years right here, celebrating God's plan for my life and His glory. If you're ever in southside Virginia, send me an e-mail and come visit; I'm not proud...even in total disarray, God's creation shines forth and there's always time for sweet ice tea, shortbread and a chin wag while porch sitting.

If you've followed this saga, included me in prayer, sent a card or heart is grateful. The process has been long, at times arduous but hardly boring. No, never boring!

Thank you; God's greatest blessings on you, yours and the work of your hands and heart.

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say
to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." For He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day..."

"Opportunity may knock only once but temptation leans on the doorbell." 
~ unknown ~

"...Satan does not tempt us to do wrong things; he tempts us in order to make us lose what God has put into us by regeneration, viz., the possibility of being of value to God.He does not come on the line of tempting us to sin, but on the line of shifting the point of view, and only the Spirit of God can detect this as a temptation of the devil." ~ Oswald Chambers, Our Utmost for His Highest ~

"Darkness comes. In the middle of it, the future looks blank. The temptation to quit is huge. Don't. You are in good company...You will argue with yourself that there is no way forward. But with God, nothing is impossible. He has more ropes and ladders and tunnels out of pits than you can conceive. Wait. Pray without ceasing. Hope." ~ John Piper ~

"No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good. A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. After all, you find out the strength of the German army by fighting against it, not by giving in. You find out the strength of the wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does now know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness - they have lived a sheltered life by always giving in. We never find out the strength of the evil impulse inside us until we try to fight it: and Christ, because He was the only man who never yielding to temptation, is also the only man who knows to the full what temptation means - the only complete realist." ~ C. S. Lewis ~

"For years my wedding ring has done its job. It has led me not into temptation. It has reminded my husband numerous times at parties that it's time to go home. It has been a source of relief to a dinner companion. It has been a status symbol in the maternity ward." ~ Erma Bombeck ~

"Temptation is like a knife, it can either cut the meat or the throat of a man; it may be his food or his poison, his exercise or his destruction." ~ John Owen ~

"Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr. ~

"Too many Christians have a commitment of convenience. They'll stay faithful as long as it's safe and doesn't involve risk, rejection or criticism. Instead of standing alone in the face of challenge or temptation, they check to see which way their friends are going." ~ Charles Stanley ~

"Temptation is the devil looking through the key hole.
Yielding is opening the door and inviting him in."
~ Billy Sunday

"...Temptation is not sin, it is the thing we are bound to meet if we are men. Not to be tempted would be to be beneath contempt. Many of us, however, suffer from temptations from which we have no business to suffer, simply because we have refused to let God lift us to a higher plane here we would face temptations of another order.
...Temptation is a suggested short-cut to the realization of the highest at which I am-not towards what I understand as evil, but towards what I understand as good. Temptation is something that completely baffles me for a while, I do not know whether the thing is right or wrong. Temptation yielded to is lust deified, and is a proof that it was timidity that prevented the sin before.
Temptation is not something we may escape, it is essential to the full-orbed life of a man. Beware lest you think you are tempted as no one else is tempted; what you go through is the common inheritance of the race, not something no one ever went through before. God does not save us from temptations; He succours us in the midst of them." ~ Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest ~

"We usually know what we can do
but temptation tells us who we are."
~ Thomas A Kempis ~

"There is no temptation taken you but such as is common to man."
~ 1 Corinthians 10:13 ~

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path."

"As the world grows increasingly dark, remember that you are the light of the world. Don't waste energy lamenting bad things over which you have no control. Pray about these matters, but refuse to let them haunt your thoughts. Instead, focus your energies on doing what you can to brighten the place where I have put you. Use your time, talents and resources to push back the darkness. Shine My Light into the world!

I am the true Light that shines on in the darkness--even in the most terrible conditions. Your light originates in Me and reflects from you. I have called you to reflect My Glory! You do this most effectively by becoming more and more fully the one I designed you to be. Spend ample time seeking My Face, beloved, Focusing on My Presence and My Word helps you to grow in grace and discern My will. Your time spent with Me nourishes your soul, providing comfort and encouragement. Thus I strengthen you and enable you to be a source of strength for others."
~ Sarah Young, Jesus Always ~

"Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter."
~ Charles Spurgeon ~

"In the age of technology there is constant access to vast amounts of information. The basket overflows; people get overwhelmed; the eye of the storm is not so much what goes on in the world, it is the confusion of how to think, feel, digest, and react to what goes on." ~ Criss Jami ~

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."
~ Jim Elliot ~

"Let God have your life;
 He can do more with it than you can."

The news has been full of tragedy after tragedy, photos showing unbelievable suffering, damage, loss of life, homes, possessions. It is so easy to become overwhelmed; what to do, who to help, where to send money, water, food, blankets? Each of us must do as we feel led; I give to Christian Aid Ministries, a Mennonite non-profit who consistently gives more than they receive in donations. I know Mennonites and others who are first responders, who had boots on the ground before the storms hit, giving aid, compassion, a cup of water in Jesus' name. If you're interested in helping, please visit CAM (Christian Aid Ministries) click here to see how you can help.

Update: No photo today as I am on a borrowed computer with no photo access. Hopefully, internet access will happen this week. There's one more load coming and then will be finished moving; I'm living at Thistle Cove Farm (relocated), sleeping in my own bed and loving my new home! My Beloved Sistah has been cracking the whip and a good many boxes are emptied with, maybe, one third left (sorry Mandy...I lied unintentionally...I found more boxes so there are a few more to unpack than I originally thought). Sistah and I went to the Blackstone Arts and Crafts Festival, yesterday, and had a marvelous wonderful to enjoy her company, laughter, love, friendship!

The new studio has been delivered, almost all vehicles have shelter and life is good great! Praise God, He has a plan...a plan for my good and for His glory! Blessed be His Name.
