One person was swept into a river and remained missing and thousands more were without power in Quebec and the Maritime provinces as post-tropical storm Irene continued to wreak havoc. In New Brunswick, More than 50,000 were without electricity Monday morning. The hardest hit area was around Fredericton, where more than 13,000 customers were without power. Coastal Nova Scotia was also afflicted. Here a man wades into the waves of a storm surge at Lawrencetown beach, Nova Scotia, Aug. 29.

If one was confused about the path to Jesus, the funeral for Jack Layton might not shed any light on it. Although it was beautiful, enthusiastic and gut-wrenching at times, it was more of a political rally than a celebration of what is promised to those who love the Lord. It confused me and I thought I was pretty clear on things of that nature. Spirituality is a whole ball of tangled yarn to a messy world. I pray Jack finds himself in that promised place of perfection.

I am incredibly bad at keeping my ambitions to have this blog current.
I have come to a real desperate place in my life. I pass a lot of it off as middle age crazy......but God does have other ways for me to resolve some of the burning issues of my life. I have a real inclination to be distrustful of the masses around me. Everywhere around me is such dishonesty and disrespect and agenda playing that I basically do not believe anyone can or does tell the truth. Life is a big stage that the players are so badly broken that they never get to the real thing, the One thing. Talk is big and actions are bigger. The fault lies within us and around us. Back to the Garden, back to the Fall........the slithery snake of lies and deceit....I am resolved to be unresolved always. I am also the broken.....and the stage feels very awkward ....Sometimes I want no part of it and other times I wish I was a part of it, for lack of something different or of something more, of something real and honest. Is it out there......?

Time is so precious to me at this stage of my life. Unfortunately there is not enough. I need to have Him work on that through me. I am in a state of constant doing and don't know how to get out of that. Many family commitments have I and sometimes I feel I am losing myself in those commitments. Can't seem to find my way around them but I will. He will help me.

I am back. If no-one but I, read this in time.....it is ok. I am missing looking back at the places of my heart that I have been .....so with a new look and a place of total surrender to the Holy One and by allowing His thoughts and His words to speak through me.....I trust that He will give this blog a new life. Much has transpired and will continue to transpire in my life and around me on this earthly plain. Some has been life-changing and sad and gloriously wonderful and never an accident but always a divine appointment. My 50 odd years (yes, I am old) here on this mudball continues to be molded by the Hand of God and I am glad to be here and if you are checking in from time to time, welcome! If you can glean even an iota of Truth from my ramblings then He is glorified. The one most truly significant revelation that I can say today that has shaped me in the last few years is that I am so insignificant in my own strength and when I look to Him to give me insight and security and acceptance and freedom and unconditional love, my significance found in Him is above this earthly realm. I am in the Beloved and nothing I do or say in my own flesh will remove me from that place. So, I accept being imperfect in my flesh but know that my perfection lies in Jesus Christ, living and breathing His Life in and through me and I give Him all praise to Him as I lift my arms to Him in anticipation of what will be.
