Thank you, Dear Jaycee! You are So Kind and Good-Hearted!

I did Physical Therapy for my Back before my Surgery, and After my Surgery for Many Weeks, and it is a Valuable Help. I still Do Some of the Exercises Today to Maintain Strength and More Freedom of Movement. The Physical Therapists I had before my Surgery were Very Nice, and the PT in the Weeks Following my Surgery I did at Home; the Doctor Gave me a Printed Sheet with the Exercises on them.

It seems to be a site much like Worth1000.
Lots of unusual graphics to be found there!
Warning: Some graphics might be...um...graphic!! :D

Been to Worth1000. Theirs often bear their logo but I would not be surprised to find some there.

I had mine filed under Art:OptIllusion. Searched "Optical illusion images online and many came up with a similar style and not necessarily the same artist (varied styles).

Could be another crossover art style.

I love the ‘illusion art’ you were posting last night. Some of it really blows my mind! I searched a while for that ‘Door to Heaven’ or ‘Stairway to Heaven’ last night. Found a lot of pretty graphics but nothing like I wanted.

Morning Joy

Joy is in cool mornings,
A cool morning breeze when the sun is bright;
Joy is in this feeling,
Of rebirth and delight.

And I yearn to wake up and awaken;
I yearn to walk beneath the light;
I yearn to walk just near the trees,
And watch some little birds in flight.

I yearn to walk just near the shore,
And watch the waves at sea;
There’s nothing I could ask for more,
Than earth’s enchanting melody.

In the early hour of the day,
When night has just passed away;
When all is fresh, and all is beautiful,
When all is brilliant, ever pure.

Joy is in cool mornings;
A stroll amidst a brand new day,
When life is just beginning,
When angels sing and dance and pray!

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list

June 8, 2009
A Life Remembered
That we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. —2 Corinthians 1:4

Daddy, help me.” Those were the last words Dianne and Gary Cronin heard their daughter say as she struggled to breathe. Kristin, 14 years old, died suddenly—just 2 days after saying she didn’t feel well. A strep infection attacked her body on Thursday. By Saturday, she was pleading with her daddy to help her.

Before Kristin died, I was scheduled to speak at her family’s church in Soldotna, Alaska. In God’s timing, I stood before the congregation the day after her funeral.

Kristin was one of those vivacious teens who loved Jesus and lived for Him—and whose sudden death leaves us with a million questions.

Because I went through a similar loss of my own teenage daughter a few years ago, I was able to offer some advice to this stunned and grieving church. First, I said, we must recognize God’s sovereignty. Psalm 139:16 reminds us that Kristin’s life was the exact length God intended. Second, I asked the church never to forget her family. Whether it’s 2 months or 5 years later, the family will never “get over” losing Kristin. They will never stop needing Christians who care and remember.

In times like this, don’t forget that God is in control and that He wants us to be a comfort to others.

When we sustain a heartbreaking loss,
When grief overwhelms our soul,
The Savior who gave Himself on the cross
Reminds us that He’s in control. —D. De Haan

In every desert of despair God has an oasis of comfort.

Bible in One Year: 2 Chronicles 30-31; John 18:1-18

Good Monday Morning Mayor and all!
What a comforting realization that God is in control, even in the valley of death.

Busy as ever in our household. Very little computer time right now.

Sending morning love from Los Angeles,
Polly

A very sad ODB this morning but makes us realize what our duties are in someone's terrible grief. And to make us realize in the devotion's words that "In every desert of despair God has an oasis of comfort."

Thank you, Mr.Mayor. God Bless Your Day.
