      Yes!  Thoroughly truthful!!  I'm focusing on Heaven, singing through the home, moment-by-moment, day-by-day, night-by-night.  BTW, since I was a mountain lover as a kid when born and raised in the NW, I'm still very strongly loving mountains, anytime I'm driving through or flying over. When I'm in heading to Heaven, I hope I can fly over them and see many, and have the birds surround me.   When IN Heaven, I hope I can see many situations around our world... family, friends, birds, dogs, cats, squirrels, deer, cows, fish, and many, many others. 
      Worshiping and focusing on the Lord is all I can do ... forever and ever.  He has healed me [my heart when I was 28, 39, and 42, and other portions of my body when from 5 to 23 years that was being beaten very strongly] and I'm very grateful of and to and for the Lord.

     This, after exactly 6 years when I began December 31, 2009, I might not be able to stay on the blog situation very often.  I'll try, but my dementia is increasing and my other portions of body and brain are a challenge.  Even when I can put MY stuff on through photos, etc., I can hardly read the pieces that others are showing.  Makes me sad.  I've been a reader and a writer since I was about 6 years old.  And an actress when I was 13.  And writing acting pieces to kids and adults in churches and acting sometimes by myself.  Now I haven't been able to do it for about a year when I can't do "The Grinch" since I was 14 and have done it until I was 69. 
 Now I'll shut up!  
Miss so many, love so many, and if I can't do well on here,
 I hope to see when we're all in Heaven. 
 Haven't physically met many of you, but you are in and on my heart.
  And, as I said, NOW I'LL SHUT UP!!

I was early 5 in Vancouver, WA.  And in trouble significantly!

 My husband and I were in the NW to see family and friends.  And a photo was taken when we were in the Mount Adams area.  We headed home to Omaha the next day and about a week later,
 I became 70.     BTW, in about 1-1/2 weeks, I'll be 70-1/2.

Mount Adams...I remember seeing that often when I lived in Portland. I loved all those mountains...a string of volcanoes that spoke of God and His power, His beauty, His glory.
Mt. St. Helen, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. many!
Thanks for sharing.

Joanne, I will be praying for you. I am too suffering from the aging process, my hearing is going now. I am grateful for what little time I can focus and process things, conversations, write a little and still teach women bible studies with the help of some wonderful women. Thank God this is not all there is, we get that new body and the mind of Christ fully...Blessings my sister.

Thank you Joanne for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story. I too love mountains. We live in the Oak woods outside the main city. Mountains are close by and a short drive to reach the snow. Until God takes us home, we will sing and rejoice in His presence here on this earth. Do not become discouraged. Know that even when your memory seems to fail, you can sing. Sing even if it is in the Spirit.

Don't give in! Keep hanging in there doing your thing and being you! I'm praying for you, sister. God bless you and yours.
