Hopeful for more

Y'all....it's been nearly 4 months! FOUR months....I don't know what to say.

And I can't begin it all here, but I want you to know that I miss you as much as miss my salsa down south - which is an unspeakable amount if you know me :) I'm really hoping to fight back for some time here in blogworld, especially before the Siesta Fiesta in San Antonio in August, so here is my first minute attempt. I will refrain from personal-update bombardments and Jesus loving until I gather some courage (and pick each of you off the floor from shock at my being back here in blogworld).

For now, I am posting my current song-obsession that has my heart bowed on the floor. I believe that it speaks to whatever your circumstances, be it the tragic or the mundane, the joyful or the sorrowful, the ever-changing and the monotonous. His Spirit beckons our hearts to be still, and know that He is God. Psalm 131 says it better than I could, so I will close with it.

"O LORD, my heart is not lifted up;
my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me
But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child is my soul
within me."

Are we concerning ourselves with matters too great for us? Are our thoughts spewing in every angle but a pretty one out of distrust and worry? Oh! Be still, and know that He IS God!

...for this I know, that the LORD my God is God, and He is for me

Howdy again! I watched this earlier via gmail...(I didn't even know you could put a link there...cool) Its awesome, and I also love Life Today. And Psalm 131 was my favorite song of ascent. Girl, I've missed you. I hope you are well, and I'm glad you'll get to go to TX. I was hoping to make it to GA this weekend, but it didn't work out.

Hope all is well-
Love You

So glad you came back to Blogland. We have all missed you so much. Can't wait to catch up on all that is happening in your life these days.

Know that we have been praying for you while you were gone!

Love the song :)

Welcome back Shelley!

Holly said...

Not only am I bowed down by that song, but by the circumstances of the singer of that song. I pray daily for her and her family, at their great loss of their baby Luke. It tears me up inside for them!

I have so missed you Shelly! And salsa? Let's have some together in SA, ok?

Much love!

Love ya girlie and can't wait for San Ant!!
