Good Evening, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!
It has been a 'timing' issue for the last twelve days. Alan and I have been on the tidbitz go with various options and again, it would appear to be another 'waiting game.' The strange bittidz thing is (or maybe it is not peculiar), that I am feeling a sense of calm and peace. We know that Our Father has everything in Hand; and that it ia just a matter of 'timing.' - HIS TIME. He, as Our Father, He knows what is best for each and every one of us!
Have been reading daily passages from 'My Daily Journey with Christ', by Pastor Charles Price of 'Living Truth.' They have all been enlightening excerpts and I will quote a couple of them. ie. "People of Vision" - "Living in the will of God starts with finding a vision from heaven. David wrote, 'Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4). That doesn't mean He will give us everything we want, but that our desires, our goals, our ambitions, our purpose will be derived from delighting ourselves in God. He puts His desires into our hearts. Delighting in God unites our will with God's will."
The other one from 'My Daily Journey with Christ,' is "Live Confident of God's Will" - "The responsibility to be in the Will of God is not one He has given to us, rather it is one he has promised to undertake. The King James rendering of Proverbs 3:6 says, 'In all thy ways, acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.' Our task is to acknowledge Him - submit everything to His sovereignty - and His task is to direct our paths. I don't want to make this too simplistic for there are other factors in actually making a decision. However, instead of asking Him for guidance, try thanking Him in advance for it."
Before reading this message, I was Praying and asking Him to direct our path, as per His Will, His Purpose, and His Plan. This is most timely and gives me a solid uplift of both hope and encouragement.
We have been also fighting a 'flu' bug for the last few days; so we have not been feeling our best. We were totally thankful for the weekend; particularly Sunday, which was a wonderful day of complete rest. The body literally said, just rest me. I watched some of the ministries on the Vision Channel in the evening, and they were right on. Revelation is happening right before our very tid eyes and we all need to be 'ready.' Eventhough the flu bug has 'slowed us down', I take it as a time to ponder, to reflect, and to re evaluate. All I can keep saying, joyfully, is that we have much to be thankful for! Also, many appreciative thanks to the ministries out there, who give freely and tirelessly of their time to help 'spread the message of the Good News!'
In certain matters that Alan is working on, the chap has gone out of town for a bit. Well, that may be a 'Blessing in disguise', as we have had more time to think things through. We are wearing many hats presently; and methinks, this 'waiting' is for the best, as a better Solution is going to be Provided by Our Heavenly Father. As Psalm 46:10 says: "Be still and know that I am God." 'He is our Refuge and Strength.'
Tidbit - Anticipate success, WITH His help; and appreciate the waiting, but with confident expectation, that it will be in His Time. Enjoy the journey along the way.
If you wish, you can refer to my 2010 posts of November 23rd and 25th, about being 'In the Middle' as per Joyce Meyer's tidbit insights from 'Enjoying Everyday Life.' I found / find them very helpful.
Bittid - Be receptive to the Truth; as 'the Truth sets you free.' You can not fool Our Father; He KNOWS ALL (our thoughts, what we are about to say, do, or write etc). Because He loves each and every one of us, He wants a genuine daily relationship. If everything appears to be overwhelming, just turn everything over to Him, ttusting in Faith, that He Provides Resolution. Just be straight up with Him; even in the tough times and continue to be of good cheer.
It is now almost dark, save for the silouetted outline of roof tops, which look like bittid hill tops.

Here is wishing you a Good Night, Peace, and God Bless.

Good Morning, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!
Am refering back to my October 30th post, 'Sharing and Caring' and will recap a conversation I had with an inspirational person on Saturday afternoon. There was one ephifany tidbit I forget to include, and will add the bittid comment afterwards.
"Yesterday when we were 'out and about', I was waiting in line at the bank. The gentleman in front of me started a conversation - basically about having 'patience' and that aren't we glad we have God to help us be 'patient?' I heartily replied in the affirmative; adding that I Pray many a time for Patience, as I do not like waiitng in line etc. Well, I honestly can not remember all the words we spoke back and forth; save that I felt I was given words to speak. I asked the man: 'What does he do in the Service of God?' (or words to that effect). He gave a very humble response that he is a minister, who should know better and is always learning etc. (I said I had much to learn!).
It was a very stimulating discussion. He also told me almost immediately that 'God loves me.' My response was that: 'He loves each and every one of us unconditionally. That we have been given CHOICE as to how we best live our lives. However, I choose to have my path directed by Him. Also, one can choose to be 'down in the dumps' or 'rise up' and make the best of it and work with 'change.' All in attitude and to keep on trekking in Faith etc.' (the words were just spilling out of my mouth; and the man was looking at me in amazement!). We talked about having a 'joyfulness', an uplifting spirit, and so forth. I even shared that I did not like going to Church (years ago); but that since I met my second husband, I changed my thinking, thanks to him. ie. That 'We are the Church, the Body of Christ.' As I mentioned, this man was almost in 'awe?' (I do not know if that was the right word; but perhaps refreshing is a better description?).
Anyway, after he finished his business, on his way out, he came over to me and wished me a good one! I replied 'Thank you! I will! And the same to you!' Personally I hope to run into him again. I sensed right off, that he was 'different', he stood out (I even mentioned about taking a stand and that even with the recent example of a plane crash / survivors. ie. What people did - did they all just stand and gawk and watch and do nothing? And that, good on the courageous few folk who stepped up to the plate, risked their lives, and took a stand to help). It also hit me afterwards, that I recognized his face, but can not place him. However, it was a 'shining moment' which was inspirational and empowering, I believe for us both."
To requote as I had mentioned, I asked the man: 'What does he do in the Service of God?' (or words to that effect). Well, the other tidbitz of it was, that I asked him if he was 'In His Service?' Then the rest of the conversation just took off and 'flowed' very naturally. Again, I think he may have been surprised by my bittidz questions; but I had discerned that he was very definitely different and stood out amongst the crowd. Also, I could sense he was not from here and eventhough his face looked most familiar, I could not place him? Perhaps I should have asked his name? Anyway, it was an ephifany type of experience for me, which I enjoyed.
Was up early, had a good tid helping of breakfast (1/2 grapefruit, 2 boiled eggs which I love, sesame seed crumpets & honey) and my much needed elixir of coffee. Now am getting on with matters that require a bit of attention.
Tidbit - Skipping out on breakfast is less than healthy. One needs breakfast to start the day off well, in all regards.
Bittid - 'Praise Him in ALL Things.' Ask Him to use you, in accordance with His Will, Purpose, and Plan. Trust and Rely upon Him to Direct your path and remembering also, to Thank Him for your Blessings along with trials and tribulations, experienced during the day.
Here is wishing you a great and wondrous day. I love the above photo image.
Peace and God Bless.

Good Afternoon, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!
It has been a full few days. We just came in the door from Costco; love that shopping facility! Alan and I 'splurged' and treated ourselves to our Christmas present. ie. A Canucks comfy fleece navy blue jersey each! A tidbit, best to purchase a larger size to be on the safe side.
The Canucks are our home team! All teams experience their bittid ups and downs; however, we know the Canucks have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup this year. Regardless of unkind comments, public put downs etc, they will come through. In last year's Stanley Cup Finals, the Canucks had a number of injured players (Kessler, Edler, Mahorta, Erhoff, Raymond, as well as one 4 game supension to a player (Rome). That did not help in the 7th game. However, that being said, the team is recovering from their past injuries; so in a tidbitz nutshell: "Go Canucks Go!"
I think too, that every time the Canucks play, I will say a Prayer for their success! Eventhough we do not have the money to go to a game; we will enjoy cheering them on from our T.V. Of course, we will be wearing our cosy fleecy warm jerseys!
Also, Hallowe'en came and went. We had about 30 tid children trick or treaters that came by and it was refreshing to see that their parents came with them. Our little grandsons came by earlier in the afternoon with their Mum; and that was fun seeing them in their costumes. Fortunately, the weather for the evening was cooperative and the fireworks were at a mimimal - much to the relief of our pup, Blue.
We will be having an early bittidz start tomorrow; as there are a number of options that we are working on. In time, things will become more clear.
Tidbit - Rely on Him to direct your path daily, and give Him thanks for your Blessings! When you do that, you have a peace within; and a calmness and joyfulness radiates through to also touch others. They may be in need of a bit of 'generosity of spirit' / good cheer to brighten their day and outlook on their lives.
Bittid - Be genuinely appreciative of the little things! ie. Alan and I are happy with our Christmas gifts today! In Costco, you would think Christmas is already here; given all their wonderful savings, promotions, decorations, etc.
It is now a dark day outside and pouring with rain; methinks a good night to stay home and simply chill out. We also picked up from Costco some cooked prawns with a delicious chili dip, and that will be an extra special dinner tonight. Yum!
Love the above photo image; it looks so peaceful.
Peace and God Bless.
