Authentic Compassion

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Wish I were thinking about how lovely  summery light is on the neighbor's pasture and our backyard.  I have not been blogging and probably won't much in the near future - DH's health continues to be primary concern -- too intimate both in feelings and privacy issues to discuss on a public blog.IHimself is a very private person and still finds it uncomfortable to have to share so much with strangers)
  He was hospitalized last month - all projects here on Windsor have pretty much halted until we can find a competent handyman to hire and that is still proving a challenge.  The Lord will provide - and today He provided warm, windy summery day.  I apologize for not blogging - I do occasionally read blogs and  enjoy  keeping up with your adventures and lives through the writings/pictures you share - just won't be doing it.  I am maintaining this blog  for my own perspective on past several years.  At some point - Lord willing and finances allow - would like to do one of those print editions of  blog - several people over the years have had their blogs printed off and it would seem to be a wonderful diary.
Received a  message from one of my internet friends yesterday -
"Humans can't live in the present, like animals do. Humans are always thinking about the future or the past. So it's a veil of tears, man. I don't know anything that's going to benefit me now,except love. I just need an overwhelming amount of love. And a nap. Mostly a nap."- Townes Van Zandt

Sounds as if it is written by a cat - a rather perceptive cat at that.

Striving to be more in the vein of Robert Browning's Pippa Passes

The year's at the spring,
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in his Heaven --
All's right with the world!

Indeed - He is in control and as always - I'm eternally grateful!

Your header makes me homesick. It's good to read a post from you even though I wish things were better and all were well. I'm glad you're leaning on the Rock and that is where you draw your strength. Where else can we go?
Hugs, Debbie

I'm sorry to read about your husband's hospitalization. Please know there are many of us in blogland who do love you very much. Prayers continue for both of you. Love, Mildred

I'm not blogging much either, Linda Sue, but for different reasons. I think of you and Skip often and keep y'all in my prayers. The Lord knows what you both need and He will see you through. Sending a big hug your way, my friend~~~

I keep you both in my prayers and you are continually in my thoughts.

I love knowing you give to God praises even when life is not so good on Buhl-a-land, but then, you and Skip would disagree and proclaim God's goodness no matter what. Oh that I can always emulate that, but of course, God IS good and He knows our comings and goings, our future, and .....

If you never post another blog I will love & pray for you, and SEEK YOU OUT !

Even tho you're in Texas & we're in Illinois you're always with me thru prayer. I went thru it with Dad, and now with Caveman. (Privacy, yep,I still blog but I keep Caveman pretty much out of it because that's how he wants it.) The stress some days can be so overwhelming that I want to take a crossbow and aim it right at St. Raphael's heart. And it makes the good days so sweet, so gentle, so worth being there. My prayers and songs have been with you every morning.

Linda, I just ran across that poem this past week!
You and Skip are on the prayer list and in my prayers; come here if/when you need to.

I don't know how I missed this post, Linda Sue, but I want you and Skip to know I am praying for both of you... I know blogging is the last thing on your mind, so don't fret about it.
