Life's Purpose- the Golden Years!

Yesterday the teacher in Sunday Bible Study challenged us as she posed this question again & again to us: What is the purpose of your life [the rest of your life]

1. What difference have I made?
2. How do I make a difference with the rest of the life God has given me?

Finally we have made a change,worshipping in a place with enough laborers to meet the challenges and opportunities to not only experience real worship but participate in studies of all kinds-right now focusing on discerning the Voice of God. I've been 'hungry' for too long.

We have for too long been in a desert environment and that's a dangerous place to be spiritually.

I do hope there are loved ones praying for me.

Copied: "Remember, we are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." WOW


Dear God:

Thank you for always being there to LISTEN TO ME; I pray that I will do better at making our time more of a CONVERSATION by being still, waiting and LISTENING to Your Voice as You speak to me.


Discerning the Voice of God-

... the first meeting of a new Bible Study group at church- I love that we are not a group of ladies between the ages of [ ] it looks and feels like a wonderful mix of women all at different stages of life apparently 20's and possibly even older than I am. Love that!

.. so excited about this opportunity! I come to this place in time spiritually hungry and needy-anticipate having this study make a very real impact.

Lord, make my heart tender and receptive to what is shared during this 6 weeks! I want only to hear Your voice and none other-help me to totally set aside 'self' and be that empty vessel waiting to be renewed & refilled..with YOU!

A Note From Me

I am so glad you stopped by-whether accidental or intentional. Some days my posts will be entirely inspirational and other times quite random but the time we share can be worthwhile. My initial intent was to use this space for my Mobley Family notes { james n mobley line } I know one can only write when inspired to do so. With that in mind I caution you to expect various twists and turns in the conversation as we wander Down the Lane and Around the Curve. If you have a clue what a Lane is then you already know that a walk down the lane can be a solitary walk, ambling without the company of another or it can simply be a leisure experience with someone who's company you enjoy, working out the world's problems or just soaking up nature and God's spectacular creation surrounding you. There is enjoyment either way. I say all that to say this: "Our walk down the lane will be much more interesting if you come along with me from time to time. I am not the only one with something to share so please join in as you are motivated or inspired.
Please know that I have not abandoned my first blog Down the Lane. I still drop in to read comments and check my tracker to see who's reading or even if there might be a new Follower. I have noticed when I check the traffic on Like Gramma's House and come over to DTL I am seeing apparently the same visitors are checking in on both sights..based on the city and state and time frame of the visitors..That's Great! Thank you faithful few who are inquisitive enough to click on the links and come over. Let me explain ...in case you have missed it earlier: This is my original blog. At a point in the process of this project I began to drift in a new direction creatively and hence Like Gramma's House was birthed. By way of continued explanation for what looks like an orphaned blog here..I simply have not come up with a way, an idea for either following through with Down the Lane or closing it out. One cannot write without inspiration. I just don't have a clue where to go with this one. The only glimmer of a creative twist I have is to invite my cousins to contribute to the family stories, pictures with their own quirky takes... looking back Down the Lane.There has been no encouragement leading me to think they would pitch in. They all have wonderful memories to share.. and I am confident it would be worth while. Apparently just don't think what they have to share would be blog worthy.

My Gramma's House~

Time changes so many things. Loved ones are no longer here. Landmarks dissappear from the landscape. Entire communities are seemingly erased. Homes have burned leaving scarcely a footprint in the earth where they once stood. Even so, we still refer back to things 'the way they once were' as being ~Like Gramma's House~ http://mygrammashouse.blogspot.com/


There comes a time in LIFE when our COUSINS AGAIN become very important. I think that time has arrived. jwh
