There and Back Again - Grab Bag

Things are not as they should be with me. Things are not as they should be in my marriage. Things are not as they should be in my family. I am worn down from it all and filled with sorrow. Below is what I prepared last night, but I am adding this beginning paragraph this morning in order to tell you that I covet your prayers. I would beg for them if I had the energy. Big or small - any prayer would be greatly appreciated. And please still go and visit the bloggers I've listed in this post. I think you will like them.


I am under the weather and without much energy. I almost cried at the thought of having to write a post, which is odd for me. But I so did not want to miss out on "There and Back Again". So instead of writing coherently about the blog posts of others, I am simply going to direct you to those blog posts.


First up is Lydia J. Will at the blog Small Town Simplicity. Her post entitled "Melted" reminded me of the things not seen.

Next is Pastor Phil, who writes at Living the Lectionary. He writes a great post, Christ the King Year A - Ephesians 1:15-23, that reminds us how we can lose simple meaning by going on and on.

Last but not least is Lori over at Lori's Prayer Closet. Her post "A Free Gift" reminds us from whence our faith truly comes. She also has some pretty great music playing over there.


Don't get too comfortable with me posting snippets. I expect to be back in full, wordy form in a few days!


Finding these authors over at The High Calling and writing about theirs posts is part of the "There and Back Again" writing project. If you want to read the who, the how, and the why, Charity has the instructions listed here. This project is enlightening and a good way to meet people at the same time. Please join us on Thursdays to write or just to read.

    You have my prayers.
    "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope."



Thank you for joining me here.

Moral support, prayers, and witty comments always appreciated.
