"I stepped out of my body to let God slide in; although I'm still dressed in flesh that I spiritually died in. Alive in Christ a new creation started breathin', Life exists and through this came completion. ... I'm not that person anymore (more!)! That's what blood was shed for! No longer a failure, livin' life more abundantly, therefore you'll never see me livin' less than victory."

"Under a light in Bethlehem, I was sifting through the sand; the saline burned my eyes, I was looking for Your hand. I gave up on myself, and left my pride disarmed; I cried out 'I'm alone!' and found myself in Your arms. 'Rest in Me, oh, My love; I have loved you before the world began. Rest in Me, oh, My love; you'll never wander too far to reach My hand.'"

Thank you for clearing that up... I've heard of 420 and was thinking 1420 might be hemp beer. I've had hemp beer before but all it did was give me the munchies.

One good thing [In reply to] Can't Post

about my current locale is a Doctor schooled in China... he diagnoses you by feeling your pulse and then sells you the herbal preparations that will help with his diagnosis. He is the kind of doctor that believes as long as you are healthy, you pay. If you get sick the treatment is free (as long as you've been following his prescribed regimen). This way the incentive is on him to keep you healthy rather than profiting from your illness.

That's awesome that you live in the desert. Somewhere near Sedona I bet!

sneaks in for quick cup of coffee [In reply to] Can't Post

cream, no sugar.

Welcome to all newbies, oldbies, and lurkers of all kinds (well, nice kinds...I'm sure we only have nice kinds anyway!!)

Not supposed to be here, I'm at work, but I didn't want to miss the special Fiesta!

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you feel about smilies) I don't have access to my smilie collection at work. A heart will have to do!

To give you an idea about Brush [In reply to] Can't Post

my right-wing-gun-nut nephew moved there in 1999 when he thought Denver was going to go up in flames due to Y2K. He's since moved back closer to civilization.

Glad you managed to sneak in. Smile

Well, since you're throwing such a fine gathering [In reply to] Can't Post

in such a respectable establishment....
with such amiable company...
and refreshing potables...
and especially since I received such a nice invitation (thanks gramma)

I guess it would be rude if I didn't sidle up to the bar for a minute to say hello to friends old and new. Howdy Altaira--lovely to see you--I'll have a magratita please! (rats, in the time it took me to get this written, you've left. ;o) I'll just have to salt the rim myself then.

I've become a sporadic lurker, rarely if not never, poster --I wish I could be more involved but that's what new parenthood does to a person. In fact, little lumpkin (baby lumpkin no longer) is filling up the corners after second breakfast right now.

Now, if somebody would just start throwing pies, that would push the nostalgia to an extreme.

Cheers friends--and thanks for the excuse to drop by again!

Oh, and because gramma requested it....here's the wee lad...
