Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

It is Well With My Soul

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!—
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

No matter what happens in this life, I know it is well with my soul!  How about you?  Do you know where you will go when you die?  There's only 2 places.....heaven or hell!

It was absolutely beautiful today!  Lower temperature and humidity!  Perfect!  But, Tim is always cold anymore, to he needed his hoodie to sit in the shade of the carport! 

The mushroom is a bit more curled under today.

It was a beautiful day!
Some of Tim's uncontrollable, left-handed motor control skills.  He said, "Oh, look!  It almost looks like a smiley face!"  To which I replied, "No excuse, Mr. I-can't-eat-very-much-real-food-but-I-can-eat-tons-of-sweets!"  :D

Still trying to capture a good chimney swift picture.

They remind me of bats!

The bluebirds were doing what the chimney swifts do.....catching bugs in the air.  I have never seen them do this before!  Normally, they swoop down to the ground to eat and then fly back to the wire.

 Well, it took a while, but the blackbird finally found the peanuts!  It wasn't so easy for him to get to them, however!

I love this picture!

At last!  Got one!

Mommy and baby chipping sparrow.  You can barely see the baby in the grass behind momma.

All brown-headed cowbirds
 They sling the seed everywhere!

The hawk swooped back into the maple tree tonight, causing the birds to flee!  I barely caught him flying away.  Watch quickly above the fellowship hall after I say, "right there it was," and you will see him flying off.  You may have to watch a couple of times to see him.

And that wraps it up for today!
