I took this picture about 8 years ago when in a special place. It's truly truthful that I could have been slammed and grabbed and never got back onto the road since I was in a different location when heading around the rivers and mountains. It was a miracle that this strange man, when I had stopped my car on the road, so I could take a photo of the Mount Rainier, which was near his place, he grabbed me into his large yard area and closed the wide yard door. Then, after I took pictures of the mountain, he came out of his home, opened the yard door, and let me go out and get in my car. Anyhow, God had protected me. It was an amazing driving stretch in a different portion of Tacoma. I got to my Mom's and to my sisters. AND I've always thought of this as the Word re: the Rock!! Always makes me smile when I see this.
BTW, friends, since I'm heading to the NW on a plane on early Saturday morning, March 19th, I don't know when or how I can see the mountains I love, b/c the rain and cloudiness cover them much of the time. I look forward to seeing sisters, family and friends out there. I hope my computer will work and I'll blog on here when I can in Clatskanie, Tacoma, or Klickitat when with dear sisters and strong friends... or Portland, Vancouver, or Seattle when I can be with friends that will drop into my life and take me around. THEN I'll be in Omaha very, very late on April 8th. Leaving Portland airport about 7 at night, which dealing with the timing here, means it would be 9 here since our timing is 2 hours later than the ones in the west, so being home nearly at midnight. A blessing to have my dear husband picking me up at the airport, holding my hand and giving me a hug and a kiss. AND when he's taking me to the airport on Saturday morning about 5:30, he'll give me a hug and kiss when I'm into that going-away situation. He's been a HUGE blessing for me for about 30-1/2 years. Now, I'll shut up. Bless you and yours!

This was an unusual portion that Dave and I were going into the taxi stretches in Kampala. We were put into the taxis and taken around and about to other places. Wasn't easy, but sometimes God put me in the place alone to get on a taxi; sometimes Dave was in other locations to work or do whatever for people, and I was put in other places. Sometimes it went well, and sometimes it was spiritually dangerous. BUT, it was a HUGE blessing to be there and do whatever. OH, and sometimes the people had their goats or sheep or lots of other stuff tied in the back of the taxi and the chickens or piles of food and clothes were on the floor between all the seats. Lots of people ... more than officially OK at about 12 to 15 people, and then, NOT officially, often 20 or 30 were added in. Hard to sit gently. Very dangerous in some ways. Anyhow, have never forgotten much of it, and we've LOVED much of it, and Dave and I have loved the people!
AND would love to be there again, BUT haven't been there since early '04 and haven't been able to go again. SO heading to Heaven is all that counts.

During that time in Uganda... heading to Uganda in mid-November '03 and heading home to Omaha mid-February '04... this special time to be at Kabujagera, Uganda, was about the end of November where I'd never been in the past years in Uganda and it was a huge blessing for me. Took photos when stepping out of my room when I woke up. It was a wonderful pile of the clouds and trees and other things that were beautiful, even though the town was struggling with the roads and the homes, etc. But I was filled with much rejoicing during those couple days. AND I was a preacher/teacher a few times, too, and that was a huge blessing for me. THEN, when leaving the town and on the beginning of the road saw this:

Twenty-five years ago, when Dave and I were at our first time in Uganda, we saw so many little kids in a lot of places back then and were able to give little hugs. And I was a preacher and a teacher at churches immediately way back then. Since it was 25 years ago, now the little ones we met are about 30, and they have lots of kids, too. Sure would love to see them again. Even when we were in Uganda a few more times -- a bit from '94 to '04 -- and were around towns, villages, and BIG cities, we sure loved many then, and still love many now. On email, fb, and some phone situations, we are blessed to be in touch with our "sons, daughters, grandkids, brothers, sisters, moms, and dads". Still filled with love to us and from us to them. BTW, sure would love to see this girl again, but I have no idea where and when she stayed and remained.
I always think that when I'm in Heaven, we might be put together to smile and worship the Lord and appreciate how He dropped us together. So when I'm there, I can hardly wait to see and meet many again ... in and around our world, of course!!!
AND these photos were during our first time. Dave and I were walking very suddenly up a hill to a home we were staying at. I took that picture. Then, with another girl we really loved, were able to have a picture of the us with her. And I was holding a little boy and he was giving me a hug. Have known a little bit of his family since then, but have never seen him again. Anyway, here they are...

That is what is on my heart consistently for the past stretch of years. Every day I say and sing in our house or in a car or when I can walk outside with my canes and I use strongly the words of glory, worship, honor, and thankfulness. Since my body and brain don't work as well... even to read and write re: the Bible... all I can do is sing to and for Him. Sure loved to see this photo this evening and it grabbed my attention and my heart. So, sending it out again to share.
[I have another verse from Psalms that has grabbed me, too, so I hope I can find a good photo with that one in a day or so. Do what I can, when I can, how I can.]

This is an everyday thinking and worshiping piece. I've read it yesterday and saw this today when looking through a pile of Ugandan photos, and this grabbed me and my attention. All I do, moment-by-moment, day-by-day, night-by-night, is to worship and focus on the Lord. That's all that counts for me any more.

When the Lord laid it on me today to put pieces on my blog, and I looked around for quite a while, I suddenly saw this and was filled with rejoicefulness of the Lord's kindness.
As a sinful, fighting, dangerous kid and dealing with serious situations for many years, the Lord had protected me and broke me strongly into Him. I'm a grateful...GRATEFUL... daughter of His. Did what I could years and years ago. Nearly 35 years ago He's had me going into other parts of our nation and, 25 years ago, other parts of the world. He used me to spread His Word around and worship and, when seeing the demonic portions in many places, He was sent me to drop Him onto many others. NOW, I can't go very much, very often. I can't drive, b/c, legally the hospital says I' can't, and can't share and think much, b/c of my body and brain issue. However, when in the house or when someone drives me around a bit, I worship and pray for the Lord.
All I can count on, is that when I'm in Heaven I'll be rejoicing strongly to Him.

This is a wonderful Word re: the Lord in Revelation. And, seeing the photo, it grabbed my heart and my attention suddenly this night. It's so strongly truthful. And seeing the clouds and the Heavenly portion that really grabs my heart. So, filled with with blessings when heading to bed in a few minutes and I'll sing and worship and honor and glorify and pray to and through the Lord all night, even in my dreams... and then during the day. HE is IT consistently when the future is in and through Heaven.

When reading the Bible this morning I saw this verse of Psalms and I saw this photo... AND I noticed that a couple years ago when I put the photo on with the Word I had written Psalm 118 instead of Psalm 18. DUH!! Anyhow, the truthfulism is that that Word has really grabbed my heart and my attention many times. So, I can't re-do my photo, but just thought I'd tell you re: that stupid mistake about Psalms. AND, also, when it indicates it was when I'd originally left Tacoma 45 years earlier, now it's 47 years. I was in Tacoma much of the time from when I was a very young kid until I was 23-1/2 when my former husband, about 3 months after we were married, drove down and took me to his family situation near San Francisco, California. Since all those years ago, wherever I was living in other portions of our nation, I've continued to be a visitor ever since then when I could. I've taken many, MANY pictures of the Mount Rainier. AND the Pacific Ocean, Columbia River, and many towns in the NW.
Pacific Ocean, late June, '15
Me and Dave and the other two pictures were early July.

I truly focus on this... moment-by-moment, day-by-day, night-by-night. Even if He doesn't come to our World before I'm in Heaven, I hope I can be on the warfare portion heading down to the world and, in when reading the Revelation portion of the Bible so often, I assume I'd be on a horse flying down for a strong situation. Anyhow, that's my thinking situation. Through me and many, the Lord is filled with blessings, love, glory, worship, honor and praise. Focusing on Him is what counts.

ABSOLUTELY!!! This is all I can focus on, day-by-day and night-by-night. I've truly shared re: my brain and body issue, that I can't read well or walk well, and all I can do is worship. These words have come out of my heart and I frequently sing this many times a day. He dropped these words onto me a few months ago and I, when walking around our home or walking nearby [with my canes], I send this to Heaven consistently when singing:
Worship You my Lord, Worship You. 
Glorify, glorify, glorify, and worship You. 
Oh, my Lord, OH, my Lord, OH, MY LORD...
I WORSHIP YOU! 
Glorify and glorify, honor and honor, and worship You!
