A Guest Room

 
'I run for dear life to God,
I'll never live to regret it.
 
Do what You do so well:
get me out of this mess and up on my feet.
 
Put Your ear to the ground and listen,
give me space for salvation.
 
Be a guest room where I can retreat;
You said Your door was always open!
 
You're my salvation - my vast, granite fortress'
- Psalm 71 {The Message}.

  11. Need to be in a retreat with my Dear Lord as often as I can. And for Him to always be tapping me on the head and saying, "It's TIME!!"

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
