God is up to something and i'm going there. I never told you about the insurance company's letter last week. They sent a letter explaining they were denying my surgery bc the doc had not sent in enough clinicals. i had to laugh with God and ask what's up with that?! really i did laugh and laugh all the way to packing my bags and pulling out of the driveway to head to the mtns for a visit with family.
In quietness and confidence will be your peace. gotta run, get ready for the day.

The greatest miracle in all of this - restored relationships with my mom, sis and brothers. The most amazing of all, my next-to-youngest bro, and his life now sold out to God. He calls me everyday to share Christ-happenings. Here's one for you to ponder:
he shared with me that his friends, a couple and the man's mother have lots of land, little money; want to build a sports complex for youth on this land to advance the Kingdom of God. Yesterday my brother told me he was going up on the mtn to spend time with God and seek His Face. Where we live "going up the mtn means timber roads and no people or homes around". On his way close to the top he ran into a man, who he stopped to ask if he could help him, did he need a ride or anything. After exchanging pleasantries my brother went on his way. He stopped short of where he was headed, bc he really didn't know how to find the place and ahead was nothing but a mud hole. He knew if he got stuck there was no way to naturally get unstuck. Right after turning around he ran into the same man again. This time the man wanted to talk to my brother bc of his kind words to him about Jesus Christ.
After talking for quite a while and the man introducing himself to my bro (he was wealthy and an inventor; i checked him out on the web he is for real) the man told my bro if he ever needed anything, anything at all, to call him and he would help him. My brother told the man although he made very little he wanted for nothing bc of Jesus in his life. But he told him of the sports complex desire of the couple. The man told him once they had all their plans laid out to call him and he would donate money in my brother's name. My brother said, "when you donate do it in Jesus' name not mine."
How is that for a God-divine appointment? Personally i believe God is doing that for all that are willing to step out an share Jesus with the world.
hope you don't mind my sharing this story with you online. This is one of many my brother has shared with me. He has me in tears of laughter everyday when i talk to him bc of what Jesus is doing in his life. He is now a soft-touch for Jesus, pliable and supple in the Master's hand. He openly weeps before people and his heart is so tender to things of God.
my brother desires to know the King of Kings personally by his name "Majestic Glory"

In scripture there is a verse that says,
"even the rocks will cry out if we don't for the Lord"; my paraphrase.My hubby loves venturing up the mountain to Sky Line drive to see this formation of rocks. They are so huge and he realizes the expansion and bigness of God standing atop this grouping of rock art from God. Creativity began with God and that is where it will end but somewhere in between the created must need create too.

While stopped at the overlook my hubby pointed out this beautiful butterfly on a thistle bush. It was as if the butterfly decided to do an exhibition so i could take its picture. Don't you just love the color? It was such a wonderful get-away. So much so that he is thinking of taking me back today when he gets off from work. Then i will attempt to see mom and another brother. My mom will be 80 this coming month and my sister is attempting a big party over at the Monacan's site.
I'll get to hear the next part of the pastor's sermon if i go. Seems the Lord is working in me "that godly sorrow" the pastor was talking about last Sunday. And this Sunday he is going to extend the series to broken relationships. Both my brother and i are looking forward to hearing that. He and i know how broken our family has been for years. So my "healing" will come in more ways than one. Only God could use a diagnosis to heal the broken hearted. For that my brother and i are both grateful.
i think i hear the tune from John Denver in my head "take me home, mountain momma". ah nostalgia.
