Lead Me to the Rock!

Psalm 61:2, 3
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.  3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

The enemy.....sickness.  Tim's sickness.  The dreaded "C" word.  Cancer.  I cannot imagine how people cope without having the LORD on their side!  The comfort in knowing that He is in control and is working everything for my good and His glory is the only thing that gives me hope when I am feeling overwhelmed!

Thank you, Joy and Sharon, for singing this song this morning.  It blessed my heart!  I'm so thankful for the ROCK we have to lean on in those overwhelming times!

The Rock That is Higher Than I

O sometimes the shadows are deep,
And rough seems the path to the goal,
And sorrows, sometimes how they sweep
Like tempests down over the soul.

O then to the Rock let me fly
To the Rock that is higher than I
O then to the Rock let me fly
To the Rock that is higher than I!

O sometimes how long seems the day,
And sometimes how weary my feet;
But toiling in life’s dusty way,
The Rock’s bless├Ęd shadow, how sweet!

O then to the Rock let me fly
To the Rock that is higher than I
O then to the Rock let me fly
To the Rock that is higher than I!

O near to the Rock let me keep
If blessings or sorrows prevail,
Or climbing the mountain way steep,
Or walking the shadowy vale.

O then to the Rock let me fly
To the Rock that is higher than I
O then to the Rock let me fly
To the Rock that is higher than I!

Our neighbor, Lori, is moving to Hubert, NC.  Today was her last service to be with us, so she wanted a picture to take with her.  Unfortunately, there are several missing for the picture.
Thank You, LORD, for these wonderful people!

Since Tim couldn't be at the services today, Lori came to the house and Ilene took the picture.

And then Lori took one for Ilene.

Church sign for this week.  The Cornerstone of our faith is that ROCK mentioned earlier in this post!

After I worked on the sign after church, we still had a little bit of time before it got dark.  I felt Tim needed a change of scenery from being in the house all day, so we went outside for a bit to watch the birds.  Nothing came around but the cardinals, the hummers and the one bird that I still don't know the name of.  I started getting a bit chilly myself, so at around 8:30 we came back in the house.  Tim was ready for bed anyway.

In examining some of the melanoma tumors under his skin, we believe some of them have shrunk.  That is encouraging!  Especially after the rough week Tim has had!  LORD, please heal his body!  Help him to be hungry and, more importantly, to be thirsty!  Thy will be done!
