Where To Now Lord??

FROM: PSALM 139
O Lord, you have searched me

and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you know it completely, O Lord.



Crystal and Friend



Where can I go from your Spirit?

Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths,a you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

We were two young women on the brink of life.
Work mates both in our early twenties..
Neither knew where life was going to take us.
Yet we both trusted in our Lord for direction.
The road wasn't easy, we both had much to learn.
But we survived, because our guide led the way.
We survived because we trusted in Him.
And after almost 40yrs, we both still do.
The secret is believing in His Word...
And remaining strong in Him....
Our Savour, Christ Jesus.

  2. Such a great reminder of the truth in Him that when we commit all of our ways to Him, everything is just on the right track. And there's just no other means. God bless.

  11. Great post and photograph. Tell us more about the photo? I think you're standing on a drugstore scale? When was this taken and where? Do you have memories of what happened before and after? Thanks for sharing.

  12. Thank you ALL.

    Nancy, You are correct, I am standing on an old stand-up scales. I think you dropped a shilling in for a reading?
    The photo was taken in the late sixties at a Pharmacy in South Western, New South Wales, Australia.
    Both of us had four children each and both went on to become professional counsellors.
    I returned to nursing in 1994.God Bless.
