Well, here I am on the 22nd again, lol. This is what, the FOURTH month in a row that I am posting to my little prayer blog ONLY on the 22nd? Although this is the FIRST month that I actually THOUGHT about posting in between, lol. That is probably because I have been on my site more this time. NOT nearly every day, like I had hoped, but at least several different days, perhaps 8 to 10 days out of this past month. Not bad, considering I had developed quite a load of guilt — and feelings of failure and dread — concerning this site, due mostly to my neglect of it. I thought getting ON here more, interacting with my own site, would help make it more friendly and inviting to me, and dispel some of that negativity… AND help me continue to BUILD some of what I envision… And it HAS been helping. So far, so good. I just NEED to be CONSISTENT, and I need to be consistently PATIENT with the process, and with my own growth. Anyone ELSE have trouble with that — being consistent at doing things you KNOW are good for you? :wink: Lol, I think I have a few more, if you need to borrow some…
Wow, I do have to admit that I HAVE learned and grown quite a lot in the past month, heehee! But I give ALL the credit to my awesome faithful Shepherd, who provides AND guides. Yay! <3
I have been coding more, adding new pages and posts (“steps”) to my /Journey, along with some behind-the-scenes supportive and explorative pages. It’s actually been kinda FUN to get back into coding and website design. I’ve even created a few new PDFs, some of which appear in the /Journey. I have worked about as many hours this month at my PAID job as a home health worker — but the schedule is leveling out now to a more reliable 26 or 36 hours between Friday night and Tuesday morning. That leaves me with MOST Wednesdays and Thursdays as my “weekend” — but I have a 3-hour mandatory all-staff meeting THIS Thursday. Hmph. Awards and recognitions and hold-my-hands and redundant information… but it’s an extra $45 after taxes, so I can’t complain.
At that time people will sing this song in Judah: We have a strong city with strong walls and defenses. But God gives us our salvation. Open the gates for the good people to enter. They are the God’s faithful followers. God, you give true peace to people who depend on you, to those who trust in you. So trust the LORD always, because in the LORD YAH you have a place of safety forever… Honesty is the path good people follow. They follow the path that is straight and true. And God, you make that way smooth and easy to follow. But, LORD, we are waiting for your way of justice. We want to honor you and your name. At night my soul longs to be with you, and the spirit in me wants to be with you at the dawn of every new day. When your way of justice comes to the world, people will learn the right way of living. Evil people will not learn to do good, even if you show them only kindness. They will still do wrong, even if they live in a good world. They never see the LORD’S greatness… LORD, you have succeeded in doing everything we tried to do, so give us peace.
