RuN For YOur LiFE!
I've been pondering a lot lately, I do that don't ya know. So much to life. So much to Eternity...God put this short video on my heart from my late blog, it's still alive just asleep but not asleep...It's so NOT asleep. I've tried to condense to one blog now days that's all...
Here is the page I retrieved it from, you may enjoy some of those blog entries as well. http://visionforagodlyhome.blogspot.com/2012/03/run-for-your-life.html
I think about my precious step-dad Al lately, especially when I see anything from New York like the Time Square Church video..I miss Al, he was from New York. He took such good care of my mom...life changed drastically the day he suddenly passed away from a heart attack. That night as I hung the phone up with my poor mom, she was sent home from the city hospital in a taxi with Al's clothes on her arm. (I was the one to bring his suit and tie to the funeral home, not a pretty memory.)
That night after receiving the horrible phone call I ran out to the front yard, it was dark, the children were asleep. I ran out to the front yard in a long, baggy yellow Garfield tshirt nightgown. I looked up at the sky, the stars, and I cried out to God in a silent scream...I cried out to Al in a silent wheezing cry. I knew he was on his way up there to God...but it didn't make life easy for me after that. My little girls, Lea and Marianna, my little baby, Michelle lost their best friend. I could write uncanny things I've seen of Al but I'll save it for another time for the mostpart. I will mention I saw his face when I was delivering my youngest, Rebecca. The chief midwive at the birth center tell me I scared them to death, I had turned grey...
There are so many things to blog about, there are money saving tips, there are fashion tips for simple elegance and sewing...there are natural medicine tips I could share. But all in all, I'm a child of God in this nutso world.
We visit churches and I sit there. Yeah...Call me a whiner, a complainer...Call me a griper. I don't apologize for speaking truth here. No fake-jake here.

I just felt led to post this in this world of non convicting sermons, canned emails etc.
I. Just. Felt. I had better post this, things are rough out there and if ya don't think so maybe you better come out and take a look? Ya know?

We are doing fine. Many times when I share my wee prophet's heart people think I must be going through something, that something is wrong here. No, not at all...I just see things very clearly and care enough to warn. You may ask Jem and our daughters, those daughters who probably still miss their pa-pa Al. Our Rebecca who tried to come way to early if the midwives didn't save her, if God didn't save her. I've told her many times... Rebecca. God has His hand. on. you.
Life has changed immensely since '91. Al always said we had that pioneering spirit, whether it be homeschooling or moving to the country... Al, you would love it here. Our artists hearts could sit at the table and we could drink coffee together...we could laugh and smile quietly, boisterously...
I do hope the short video was a good challenge in a good healthy way.
A smile and heart of love, blessing and prayers coming your way, ~amelia
