We Matter To God
As we come before you, Lord,
And worship at your feet,
You pour out your blessings upon us
And meet us in our need
Whatever we are facing,
We can leave it with you, Lord,
And walk away with confidence
Knowing you will bear it all
For you are God almighty,
Our God in whom we trust
To unload us of our burdens
And shower us with love
Lord, you are so wonderful
To care about our lives,
Each small, insignificant detail,
Each tear that we cry
For everything about us, Lord,
Is so important to you,
You want to be involved in our lives
In everything we do
So I can't help but praise you
For the loving God you are
You care so much for every soul
And you're never very far
That we cannot touch your heart
Every time we come to pray
And we can come into your presence,
Each and every day.

Casting My Care
Lord, I continually set before you,
My requests and all my needs
With thanksgiving I come unto you,
My concerns unburdened to thee
I wait for your intervention, Lord,
In quietness of soul and mind
And worship at your footstool,
Leaving my cares behind
And Lord, I express my thanks for you,
For all you are to me,
I thank you, Lord, that I matter to you,
Though at times, I cannot see
Because of the circumstances in life,
The things that I go through,
I find my eyes are on the storm,
When they should be looking to you
So help me, Lord, each precious day,
No matter what life brings me,
To carry on with hope and faith
And to rest in you with peace.

Everyone Needs Someone
People need people and friends need friends
And we all need love for a full life depends
Not on vast riches or great acclaim,
Not on success or on worldy fame,
But just in knowing that someone cares
And holds us close in their thoughts and prayers-
For only the knowledge that we’re understood
Makes everyday living feel wonderfully good,
And we rob ourselves of life’s greatest need
When we “lock up our hearts” and fail to heed
The outstretched hand reaching to find
A kindred spirit whose heart and mind
Are lonely and longing to somehow share
Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware
That life’s completeness and richness depends
On the things we share with our loved ones and friends.

It is so good to hear from you.It must feel good to be able to get back doing things you were not able to do for a while.
We do put in a small vegetable garden.Tomatoes,peppers beets a few potatoes ,green onions and garlic.We have to put a fence around everything except for the garlic as the deer love the garden. Last year was the first time in years that I could get down and weed the garden...not that I like weeding.
I am back to doing most everything I did before.Just not doing any running but I never really ran before the HR. I did not try X-country skiing this past winter.Golf is good,Tai Chi helps with the balance ,flexibility and stretching .I can even get up and dance!!!
Great to have coffee with you!
We will have to do it again.

For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you ~ Philemon 1:7.
I rejoice over you. As I prepare to close out my account with Spark People on the 12th, I want you to know that God has used you to refresh my heart and I have found much joy and comfort in your loving ways and caring presence. You will be in my heart and in my prayers as I take up my cross daily to follow Jesus. Keep up the good work, beloved. God bless you on your way.
