Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

Don't worry

I am fine but probably will be quiet for a few more days.  I am just doing a lot all at once.  I'm asking hard questions of my providers, I'm trying to provide information to Dr. Mind to help sort things out, I'm tired and last night slept better (after 6 hours in the car and visits with Dr. Brain and my sister/niece/mom), once I got to sleep.  I'm on a little more sedation and we'll see what that does.  I'm also still caught in my many forms to fill out stage of being, and many phone calls.  And to make it harder my laptop hard drive died and so I'm using a netbook for everything.  Which is fine but it is slower, there is a lot of page resizing, and everything takes longer.  And I have a new project in the works during my few "free" minutes that I'll share soon.

I have a number of things I want to post, but for the moment the blog is at level of attention 16 or so.  Right now I need to make sure my budget is correct for April, vacuum my bedroom and move my bed back to the position that I inexplicably slept better in.  For some reason when I got all my baby hats ready to send the pink ones seemed to have issues, so I am trying to rapidly knit pink hats.  So far I completed one and had to rip up 2 and start over.

It's just a weird time in my life.  I'll be back in the next few days.  (I'm also adjusting to a new schedule with Wed. night support group, which is 2 hours of driving (plus) and 90 minutes of group.  I have an additional dr. appt. this week and labs.  And I have to spend down my food stamps to zero in the next 2 weeks.  Tomorrow I am hoping for the energy to go to Sam's club after Dr. Mind.  Which will depend as it's likely to be a teary session.

I promise, you're more likely to hear if I'm not alright than if I am.  If I'm hospitalized for psych and am on my usual unit I'll have email.  If I get stuck elsewhere I won't but that's unlikely.  If I am hospitalized for something not psych I won't have email but if I remember to program it into my phone I will have the ability to text the blog.  So quiet is likely to mean busy and handling more than I feel able to do.

And now I think, I am going to throw an angel food cake mix into the oven to eat with fresh strawberries.  I want a hot fudge sundae but the ice cream place in town is closed on Sundays.  There's the store and I think they still have ice cream but I try to never spend money there as everything is elevated ridiculously.  It used to be that things were priced normally and it was a nice thing that the town had a place to pick up necessities without needing a 2nd mortgage.  We even had the lowest gas prices around.  Then it sold and we have the highest gas prices and the most expensive everything you can imagine.  I am out of milk so I'm more limited on what I can make than usual.  I hope if I dig around I can find chocolate.  Bad part of having periods eery few weeks---constant PMS and constant chocolate cravings.

I'm glad you're able to make a nice, light, delicious angel food cake! That's my life-long favorite especially with strawberries and whipped cream!

I hope you get the groceries you need so you can keep up with these busy days. Thanks for the "heads up," all back-up plans and assurances.

Lord, please overwhelm Jen with Your peace. Help her to breathe deeply of You and exhale tension and fear. Give her the strength of Your confidence and strong faith that's the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen.

Stretch a lovely vibrant rainbow over her and let it gleam brightly through every passing cloud. Give her the "chocolate" that she needs to sustain her...Your own sweetness to feast on. Only You can do this so we ask for Your Spirit's power, love and light in Jesus' name. Amen. So be it.

Deuteronomy 33:12 WEB

Of Benjamin He said, “The beloved of Yahweh shall dwell in safety by Him. He covers him all the day long. He dwells between his shoulders.”

Promise #106: I will cover you all day long as you rest between My shoulders.

Today's Scripture verse comes from Deuteronomy 33 where Moses is pronouncing a blessing on all of the tribes of Israel before he dies. The New International Version Bible says Deuteronomy 33:12 this way... About Benjamin He said: “Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in Him, for He shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between His shoulders.” (NIV)

What an amazing picture of intimacy is painted between God and Benjamin. Moses calls Benjamin the beloved of the LORD who will enjoy the Lord's covering all day long as he rests between God's shoulders. I believe that every promise that God has made to the beloved of the LORD is a promise that we too can claim as our own because we too are God's loved ones.

Our God and Father invites us to rest between His shoulders today and live in a place of complete safety in Him. He is our covering and truly a place where we can 'let down our hair' and relax.

My prayer today is that this promise would become real to each one of us so that we might truly be able to rest in the arms of our heavenly Father.
