Somebody's Prayin'

I first heard this song at a TRUTH concert. The soloist was a fabulous young woman.

For almost two months, I have heard her voice singing this song. I couldn't remember all the words until I found it via Google. What I have heard over and over is: "Somebody's praying I can feel it. Somebody's praying for me." And then, I could hear the notes but not the words for the rest.

I distinctly remember when I heard it the first time this haunting way she sang it so that it was so clear that she felt alone and, yet, at the very same time had the deep conviction that she was not alone because she could feel someone praying for her.

Somebody's praying, I can feel it. Somebody's praying for me.

As with many things, an update there necessitates an upgrade here.

For reasons stated on RevGalBlogPals, there is a change related to the ring.

That is perfectly fine with me. It really doesn't matter much to me.

However, when I went to make the "simple" change on my blog. I discovered that I needed to upgrade the template.

It's not hard. not at all.

One might even make a straightforward and quite convincing argument that since this is digital media the template should have changed sooner.

So, while it was not sooner, the template has changed.

What has not changed is the deep and profound blessings that come from relationships that began from a webring and pseudonyms.

Happy Birthday RevGalBlogPals!

Philippians 1:3-6 "
I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ."

Friday Five: Forgetful Jones Edition

Friday Five: Forgetful Jones Edition as posted by Songbird on RevGalBlogPals

No, it wasn't my turn to do the Friday Five, but it was my job to confirm the new person whose job it is, so herewith, the Forgetful Jones Friday Five, complete with Sesame Street video for those who like such things.

a) What's the last thing you forgot?

I can't remember. Really, yesterday, I had Skittles to give to some great high schoolers and forgot to get them out of the box sitting right there. But today they will get frozen popsicles and, if I remember, Skittles, too.

e) How do you keep track of appointments?

Outlook on my smartphone and computer. Before electronics, Daytimer. Everything on one calendar, every "kid" event, every "church" event, every "me" event, everything!

i) Do you keep a running grocery list?

Yes, most of the time. However, it is usually on the counter while I am at the store because I forgot to bring the list. If I'm lucky, there's a kid at home that can look at the list.

o) When forced to improvise by circumstances, do you enjoy it or panic?

I am pretty good at improv and assessing the resources available to address the need of the moment, depending on the situation, so I don't panic often.

u) What's a memory you hope you will never forget?

*A* memory!?!?! I'll make this a bonus answer! Here are some highlights: presiding over communion in international waters, in a Choctaw church, at church camp with 3rd & 4th graders, during Mission Trips with jr high & high schoolers; watching my children live their faith in ordinary and extraordinary ways; connecting with others God put in my path in ways that brought joy and wholeness (that includes a particular geocache in Mexico)
