GAVE INFO TO A FRIEND RE: MULTNOMAH FALLS

     From about 4:45 until about 6:00, I was at a First Responders, which was in a portion of our town re: a murder boy who was 16, and several of us were there to pray for the family and friends.  Unusually, when we got there there were dozens and dozens of people.  I talked to a couple of them and one was a pastor for him and another was a teacher at the high school.  Many, many, many were crying and enjoyed us worshiping and praying for them and hugging and holding them.  Anyhow, now that I'm home I'm trying to put a bit on here.  
     WELL, I had a young friend/"son" drive me home and he'd been here in the Omaha area since he was a kid.  Through First Responders I'd become to know him in about 6 years.  So, since he'd been raised in this area for most of his life ... he's about 42 ...  just last summer he'd been flown to  Portland, Oregon, and he'd also been taken to Multnomah Falls and Mount Hood.  SO, I asked him to come into my house and I could show him some of the photos re: those that I'd been at.  He was here for a few minutes to go to his place, and I dropped a few so he'd smile.  He DID, and he wants to come some other time so he can see more and more of the Multnomah Falls and the Pacific Ocean and portions of Seattle and more of the Columbia River.  So, here's a few of those photos and I'll have to eat dinner and spent time with my husband. 
      So, this is what I've loved even when I was a kid back in the 1950s and several times until 2016.  Love the mountains, love the rivers, and the ocean, and Multnomah Falls, and have many family and friends there, even though I haven't lived there for about 47 years.  Show a bit of what I can.

FILLED WITH JOY RE: REVELATION!!

     Those last chapters might make you smile and rejoice just as I do.   The Lord had me read it through it, during this past week, and He had me begin again today.  I read Chapters 1-3.  Yesterday I read Chapters 19-22.  Always made me smile and rejoice.  Hope that when I'm in Heaven I'll know some of this.  Anyhow, the photos I'd taken in other parts of our nation and other places in our world I had put some of the Words on.  Well, Paris, Morocco,  California, and Tacoma, Washington and Washington/Oregon with the Columbia River.  So, putting the Word of the Bible as often as possible!

FOCUSING ON REVELATION!!

     The Lord laid it strongly on me to re-read the Revelation.  I've read it many times spiritually.  First time was when I was at a Lutheran church when I was 12.  I'd thought of it many times even when I wasn't reading the Bible very often.  For several years... at least about 20 years ... He has had me read Revelation.  I can't very well read the Bible, b/c my dementia issue is a challenge.  He had me read Mark for a few days, and I couldn't always understand the words.  BUT about 2 days ago, the Lord told me to grab Revelation.  SO I did 3 chapters today, and will read 3 every day.  The end of it is filled with joyfulness and a few of the others always grab my attentions and my heart.  Anyhow, I'll just put some of the ones that I've had for and shared for a long time and it's the first section of the early portion.  I read Chapters 1-3 today and tomorrow it will be Chapters 4-7 so this is a little of them.  Hope you'll smile.    Blessings...

MY BHUTANESE ARE WONDERFUL!

        Six-and-a half years ago suddenly when the Lord told me to walk on a portion of our street area, and, at that time I thought I was to walk about a couple miles and worship and pray.  Well, when I was going, suddenly I met a couple people who were Bhutanese.  I hadn't known any of that at first.  WELL, it was a surprising and shocking opportunity to be a missionary here in our area.  I was used to do a lot of stuff for about five years.  They got strong jobs and lots of wonderful homes and lots of cars... so I couldn't be the one to go to the airport and help pick people us, etc.  And I'd been with dozens in the hospitals.  My husband has been a pianist at wedding or teaching a couple, and providing computers for many and reworking what they needed.  Anyhow, every Sunday I go to their church only about three blocks from my house, and, even though I don't understand their language, they are worshiping, and singing, and doing wonderful things.  So I'm given hugs and kisses from a bunch of them and I'm referred to as "Sister", "Mom", "Grandma", "Great-Grandma".  Always makes me SMILE!   Dave can't be there, because he's working at churches... piano or organ and fixing things... and he leaves home about 7 AM and gets home finally at about 4 PM.  But he's been much appreciated and loved.
     Anyhow, I'll just show a few pictures.  I've had hundreds, but hope to make you all smile.  We LOVED being missionaries in Uganda for a few years, dropped into Costa Rica for a short time, in England, in Paris, and, as a me-thing, I was in Morocco for a few weeks.  We can't go anywhere else as a few years ago indicated by the Lord, because of his job situation.  SO, the Lord put us strongly into the Bhutanese to be helpful.  Love them and appreciate how the Lord did that.
The first time... Ram and Dawa ... and their son was the pastor. His youngest sister. 

Nar, the pastors wife.  She's my girl!!

He's one of my grandsons.  Very sick consistently!

This was a wonderful time at another spiritual church here in town.

The church has become MUCH larger with many of them!

Love these guys!  Brothers and a Son!

Another of our favorites!!!

Wonderful wedding!!!  Dave and I loved this!!

Sure loved seeing this!!!  Many are my dear, dear friends.
=====================================================
      Just wanted to let you know that I'm not sure if I can ever put anything on again.  My dementia has increased and my body and brain are a challenge.  I can worship the Lord, glorify, pray, praise, and honor.  I do that all day and all night.  I'm in bed for about 12 or 13 hours, but sleep some of the time, but wake up and focus on the Lord.  He's using me in unusual ways re: my dreams.  Anyhow, just want to let you know that, since it's been about 7-1/2 years on the blogging.  I can't read very often of all of you and I can't write much.  So, just want to let you know.  Thank you much.  Love many of you and appreciate you around and about re: serving the Lord with they you have shared your info.  Bless you!!

FOCUSING ON THE LORD!!

         When I was driving out to the NW in October, '12, I had taken many, many photos and this one was special to and for me.  I'll put a couple others, too, with the Word of God.  Then, officially, I put my poem on this about 6 months later when I was home.   Anyhow, since I can't read well, write well, speak well, all I can do is share that right now.  AND I'm singing my song day-by-day, night-by-night with the words re: worshiping, glorifying, praising, honoring, and praying.

                                       
                                            THE WORD...

PRESENT-DAY LIFE ISSUE

     Well, when I was a kid, I was officially a reader and a writer as a young kid and then an I was an actor in Tacoma during my junior high section.  Then I did some others in Klickitat, WA, during my high school, and did a little bit in Seattle during my age of 19.  I had officially come to the Lord on April 15, 1966, in Tacoma.  I was used as a writer and speaker and actress right then again.
     I've done some of it every year in churches or schools or hospitals or anywhere else.  From the time I was about 8 and until I was about 69, now I can't do any speaking and acting at all.   My dementia has been very strong.  I also can't read or write anything very well. 
     The writing I did a couple years ago is all I do at people regularly.  It's worth a smile and make people laugh.  SO, this is the one I put on a place in Yellowstone with a hill on one side and a mountain on the other.  Spread the words around.  
     The other portion is that I can worship and pray and glorify the Lord, moment-by-moment, day-by-day, night-by-night.  It's consistently.  I've been there in Minnesota many times.
     As I often say, I look forward to heading to Heaven!  The Lord healed me kindly and carefully many times from the time I was a kid and until I was about 40.  Since I'm 71,  I can't complain to head to Heaven any day any time.  I enjoy the worshiping issue every day and every night.
     Bless you all!!!

31 YEARS AGO IN LAKE SUPERIOR AREA!

     Way back in September 26, 1985, when my husband and I had been visiting in northwestern Minnesota for about 5 days at my long-time friend, Susan Jones' home, Dave indicated that he was going to the eastern portion of Minnesota.  I had no idea what it would be like, and I knew that a day or so later we needed to be at his mom's place in the Twin Cities for a special time with piles and piles of the family situation there. Dave had  been born and raised in the Twin Cities area and had been up and around that whole area when he was a kid and in his upper teens.  I hadn't known much of that, though.  Anyhow, I wasn't sure of anything, but just was with him and that's all that counted for me.
     WELL, things changed and were absolutely wonderful!  Since I had been a kid and raised for years in the western portion of Washington and seeing a lot of the Mount Rainier, the Pacific Ocean, the Puget Sound, and the Columbia River, and lots of hills and trees, he was taking me to a portion of Minnesota and Canada to make me smile.  There wasn't a mountain, BUT the hills were so high and so much on them and the rivers and the huge lake it was so much I'd seen when I was a kid in Washington.  Anyhow, he put me in and winked and were in that area on Friday and Saturday, and until late on Saturday we were into the Twin Cities area to his mom's home. Sunday would be a huge gift of people for us.
      Anyhow, I'll just share the pictures.    Lake Superior looked like an ocean much of the time and made me smile.  And in the area of Thunder Bay, Ontario.  So, it grabbed my heart.  Worth a smile!
