Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your responses. Everything I originally thought of doing in retirement one way or the other God has taken away. My job recently changed to where I hate going into work. Since it is all God's intention I must now wait and trust in Him to lead me. You never know what is just around the corner.

Rose, we are old but hopefully there is still some life left. (Wanted to do a smiley face but do not know how.)

I'm just now realizing how advancd in years we all are !  Where are the young ones who will take up this message of Reconcillation to the next generation?  I believe more and more there is not much time for us left before we are taken up.
 As for retirement, my husband is retired from his first job but still works full time. I expect if the Lord  allows he will 'work' till he's 70, which is nearly a decade from now.  I stopped in 2004 when we no longer needed my income to send children to college. I volunteer, and take care of home and often take care of children amd grandchildren . And I study . I promise I'm not sitting around.⌛️

Hi Pamela,

I'm not into dogs at my advanced age, but I do care for my son in law's beagle age 3 when they visit us. We play and go for walks and she drags me around the subdivision where we live as she hunts for whatever it is that she senses with her hunting nose.

I loved hearing about your new family member. A great story and well told for the benefit of us all.
Thank you much for sharing.
Ole Indiana bob

I really did not want to get another dog after having our other one put down from illness two
years ago. She was a part  Alaska Malamute and St. Bernard and we rescued her when she
was only four weeks old starving,and had her for nine years. She was aggressive to other
dogs and people so we had to keep her separated from both. It was very stressful. So I didn't
want another one, but Lo and Behold, we have a new one.

I saw a picture of this cute little dog in the mall, she had the face of a fawn. She was picked up
as a stray and was in foster care with a group called Eldercare. A rescue for old dogs 🐶.
I thought, nope, nope and walked away. Well, for three days I couldn't stop thinking about
her and decided to call and get some info on her, just out of curiosity right, hmnn!
So this is how God works in mysterious ways. The place we had to pick her up seemed
familiar to us. We realized it was a place we had been before, a community on a beautiful lake,
that we really liked but could never afford. The foster mom was really nice.

We met the dog 🐶, a 30 lb part Sheltie,part Japanese Sheba Inu .She not only had
the face of a fawn but the color, like butterscotch and vanilla. When I sat on the couch
she jumped up and laid down next to me.She had been abandoned and thrown out on
the streets before her rescue and that broke my heart, so I decided I would take her
for a two week trial. Her first week with us was iffy because she barked at other dogs.
We are campers. We spend our summers in parks and a barking dog would get us kicked
out so I had two minds about keeping her. Oh, the guilty feeling I had when I looked into
her fawnlike eyes and thinking about bringing her back and her being bounced around to
fosters.I began to work with her and discovered she is really smart.She is gentle, walks well
on leash, is not aggressive in any way and puts her head in my lap when I am reading the Bible.
I did some research on the Sheba Inu, and they are catlike, mix that with the herding
mentality of the Sheltie and it explains why we can't hear her walking around the house. Her paws
are like a rabbits 🐰, she is right behind you and you don't even know it, she's like a ninja. 😂
We have a friend who trains horses and dogs so we will work on her barking. She has taken
to my husband because she knows who the driver of that thing is that she likes to ride in.
As soon as he puts on his coat she knows she's going for a ride or a walk. My husband likes
her too,so we have decided to keep her and give her a permanent loving home.

I was recently talking to the foster lady on the lake and she has invited us to come visit and
bring our canoe 🛶 anytime we want.(bonus)
And get this, our new dogs name is Mya, the same as our last dog except spelled differently, Maia.
Coincident? I don't think so. All is of God.  ❤️ Pamela

Joel ,thank you. Above that they are God's, and I am so grateful that they are.

Stacey , your absolutely right. I had to pray and ask the Lord to please slow down my mind.
I tried to pray through it just talking to God but the things of the world kept creeping in
with rudeness and interrupting my time with the Lord. I was to the point of anger and I
don't like that feeling. Finally at eight thirty last night a calm came over me and I slept
for ten hours straight, it was the best sleep ever. Our Lord God is so good. Thanks Stacy.

May God Bless and keep you all. Your experience, kind words and understanding is very much
appreciated.

My son,his wife and grandson from our daughter are all coming for two weeks in July and I am so excited.
I know I will have to deal with their carnel nature and am a little worried about that.
Do you have any advise about that. I mean, I cringe when I hear a curse word and these
guys curse a lot, not in anger but just in normal conversation. How do you guys deal with
being around others. I have been avoiding the world, it's too peoplely. Thanks for listening.

❤️ Pamela

Pamela, hope you were able to get some rest and that God has given you peace and comfort concerning your loved ones. Your signature verse is one of many reminders for us all that when He is ready, on this side of glory or the other, the Father will draw all our loved ones to Him.

Sometimes I too get caught up in reading and studying for many hours as you mentioned. I remember a Preacher telling a story how he would get so deep in scripture study for untold hours to the point he would tell the Lord, you got to turn me loose now, I have got to get some rest!

Never heard a song by Enya I didnt like. :)

Sometimes I am reminded that, yes my child and grand sons are of me and my wife but above that they are God's.
Psalms 100
1-Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
2-Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3-Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4-Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5-For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Joel

I continue to get better but as before I still have a ways to go. I have to be very careful what I eat.

Thank you.

Dave, George, Virginia and Porter, Largeli,
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to
care and lift me up, I really needed a helping hand.
I have been awake for 28 hours now, I cannot sleep and I am so
tired and shakey, But I know all is of God, He loves and forgives me
and this too shall pass. He never fails us. I love Him and you.❤️ Pamela
