Message from Marine Corps League ~We are asking everyone to say a prayer for "Darkhorse" 3rd Battalion 5th Marines and their families. They are fighting it out in Afghanistan & they have lost 9 marines in 4 days. IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE the message spread if more could past it on.

Semper Fi, God Bless America and God Bless the United States Marine Corps... Often Tested, Always Faithful, Brothers Forever    Claire FitzGerald, Chaplain Marine Corps League, Dept. of Washington**

SNOPES finds it true.

This is my DAY OFF... lol... I am painting all day and do not even want to be blogging this forgive me as I jump straight into my work.

I have to write a second though remembering a scene from the Quiet Man where John Wayne gets off the train and is seeking the road to Innesfree. Yeah, I probably spelled that wrong.  Anyway, big John gets off the train and he asks a conductor to give him directions. Another man jumps in contradicting the first man, then three or four others lean in to give their advice.  John is scratching his head and two more join the group discussing the best directions...and suddenly a little man appears and takes John's luggage and walks away with it, pausing at the door and looking back to see if John has noted that his bags are gone.  John on cue, looks up and back and forth and decides to follow the man with his bags.  The man has a cart and horse ready and has loaded John's bags by the time he catches up with him.  John climbs aboard and off they go to Innesfree.

Why did I relate this?   Isn't it true for everything in life? EVERYONE has an opinion about what you should do when you ask for advice.   EVERYONE jumps into the fray wanting to share 'the best advice yet' with you.  You head cannot even begin to sort things the advice is drowning out any inner thoughts.  It is only when you look away from all the 'help' that has gathered, and turn your eyes and heart to the one that is carrying your bags, aka your load.  He has the way for you.  Follow Him and He will keep straight your paths.
Abundance be yours as we prepare...


 "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;  in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. " Proverbs 3:5-6
