Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Strangely Dim - Sunday Singing


google image

I keep seeing the merry-go-round from the children's play ground.  Well the old children's playground, they are now band.  I would run to jump on while someone was spinning it round.  I would try to stand in the middle without falling over, as everyone laughed while pushing it harder and faster.  Later would be my turn to spin.  I remember during high school the drill team would go to the elementary school playground and spin each other.  We would see who could survive without losing their stomachs.  Giggles would pursue as someone would try to walk once they stepped from the merry-go-round.

Life can bring back the funniest memories as we spin around in all directions.  Trying to stand while feeling the ground moving beneath me brings me to the solid rock.

I am spinning...not sure who or what will grab the handles of the ride and slow it down, speed it up or yank it to a halt.  During this season I embrace songs.   This song has such a catchy beat that you just smile as this artist draws you to the truth.  More than once her songs have lifted my soul and turned my eyes upward.


So for my Sunday Singing....Strangely Dim.


Francesca Battistelli - Strangely Dim Lyrics

When I can retrieve my balance I will re-enter the blog world.  For now so many decisions, so many appointments, so many adjustments, so much learning  while the spinning continues,  yet  I stand on the Rock for my foothold.

Sharon said...

I can't do spinning in any way, shape, or form. I can't even WATCH the spinning teacup ride at Disneyland!

It makes me feel - as I like to put it - life queasy.

Praying for you. Hold on for dear life, and watch what God does...

Thank goodness for the Solid Rock!

GOD BLESS!

I relate to that spinning so well. As I read your playground visual, I had a playground visual of my own pop into my head. We used to take the tether ball off the pole. Then, someone would lie on the ground and spin it really fast while we stood in a circle and jumped when it passed.

Don't know if everyone played that or if we were just playground oddballs, but THAT is the way I'm feeling these days. I feel as if I'm just hopping over spinning tether balls.

I don't want to lose my grip on blog land because I ALWAYS feel better after both writing and visiting. If I can manage to hop, read, and write, I will.

In the meantime, I have not stopped praying for my invisible friend from Texas. Your new business on top of (or beside) everything just adds another dimension to the prayer.

I really am trying to check email more since I got this new computer. I'm at the other end of a prayer request or just a cyber shoulder whenever you need it.

Cross my heart...

Oh, sweetest blessings to you Jeanette. My heart just aches for you and all that you have been and are still going through. And, you remain such a testimony to the faithfulness of God. We all know that God has it all under control but when we are in the midst of our trials, it is sure difficult and He so understands that. May He give you all that you need just as you need it. Love and hugs!!!!

Rebecca said...

I'm here, too. I will be thinking of you; praying for balance and stability, supply and sanity. I look forward to your return, Janette. It won't be the same w/o you.

Lisa Kohr said...
