" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

Where my head was yesterday morning, while in court (handling a private matter).......

......I sat there and read the 16th Psalm, over and over.

Keep me safe, O God,
for in you I take refuge.

I said to the LORD, "You are my LORD; 
apart from you I have no good thing."
........................
........................
LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup;
you have made my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me
in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.

I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; (not my lawyer)
even at night my heart instructs me.
I have set the LORD always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
(and 3 things happened to me as I read this Psalm there in that court room)
Therefore (1) my heart is glad and (2) my tongue rejoices;
(3) my body also will rest secure,
because you will not abandon me to the grave.
nor will you let your Holy (faithful) One see decay.
You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
..................copied from most of Psalm 16

As I experienced such joy in the presence of the HOLY SPIRIT yesterday, I just was in awe at the thought of what it will be like when we experience those eternal pleasures someday !

The entire day was spent walking in GOD's favor.........I mean, it was like he had deemed it "Dolly Day " !
I have never done ANYTHING to come near deserving such a day,..........and I reveled in it !

  2. Hi Dolly! what a precious post! To realize the presence of God with us in such a very vital and real way as you did...love it! Reminds me of the verse..'draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh to you'.... I hope things worked out in your favor in every way in court. I have been concerned about the second census report the gov sent us. It is so invasive...at first I thought it was a scam. Have you gotten a second one? But...the Lord is my Shepard...I shall not want.~~ I have been drop spindling all afternoon...until my knuckle is getting sore. So much for age 62! thanks for your lovely comment about my lace scarf...=) Our ac is under the weather and it is so hot in here. I like the windows open in the evening though. Birds singing and all. But the heat is cooker! hope you are cool as a cucumber!
