Been shot with a bee bee gun on the front porch of that house, been trapped in the outhouse by the same bee bee gun. I remember the time we (my brothers and me) decided to play fire department and burned my doll house. No one told me we'd have problems after the fire was out.
We had funerals for our pets with our neighborhood friends. Timmy would preach the funeral, Tammy and I would sing songs, Greg and Bruce would "amen" Timmy's preaching. Memories!
All these memories just started coming back when I wrote about Stockholm.....didn't intend to ramble on like that.
I love the book of Psalms. I for some reason pulled up my niece's facebook profile and she had a excerpt from Psalms and I really liked what it said. Here it is:
Psalm 71:20-21King David said those words after he fell from favor with God after he had the affair with his soldier's wife and got her pregnant then had the soldier killed to hide the pregnancy he married her. But everyone knew. And the child was taken from them as well. King David had a lot of repenting to do to find favor with God again.
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter,
you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will
again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.
Now, while I haven't done those things, I am not where I need to be with God. And that verse along with prayer meeting and knowing the date really came together for me tonight. It is a difficult time right now. I will make it through somehow.
I love you all.
To be continued..........
And while I don't have a date with the preacher's son I do miss Rick and I was so very lucky to have had him in my life!
