Prayer Requests 10-13-17

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 63

You, God, are my God,
    earnestly I seek you;
    I thirst for you,
    my whole being longs for you,
    in a dry and parched land
    where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary
    and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
    my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
    and in your name I will lift up my hands.
I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
    with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

On my bed I remember you;
    I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
    I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
    your right hand upholds me.

Those who want to kill me will be destroyed;
    they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword
    and become food for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;
    all who swear by God will glory in him,
    while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

  1. Thank you. 🙂

    This morning was stressful, as I finally sat down with the stack of mail, going through the bills & writing them down, & looking at the transactions on the online banking. There are some things that I have no idea about. I’ll be making some calls on Monday &/or Tuesday. (Depending on how long we are at the SS office in the morning. Nightingale will be working Monday afternoon/evening, so Chickadee & I will be childsitting then.)

  2. In some ways, all the “must do” details regarding bills, paperwork, etc. serve as a needed distraction while we’re still in mourning. It’s annoying and even burdensome feeling at the time, but looking back to when I went through that with my mom’s unexpected death, I believe it actually helped me transition from the shock of losing her, quickly followed by the deep sorrow that simply shuts you down completely for several days or (more likely) longer, at least to some degree.

    It was an exhausting period for me in many ways (and I also had to bounce back to my job, which was no picnic as I had virtually zero focus or energy for a while — I remember missing an important zoning story I should have been on top of — my editor walked over and threw the copy of the LA Times story about it on my desk asking pointedly, “Why didn’t we have this??”).

    Hang in there, God has you – and so do we.
