The 2010 Goal Reached

In 2010, I achieved and reached the goal of 2,000 articles on my Bible article blog: http://mbriley.preachersfiles.com/. It took ten years to achieve that goal.

The next goal is 3,000 articles, if the Lord allows me to live that long.

Would I live life over again? I’m reminded of the song, “If Jesus goes with me I’ll go anywhere!” If he goes with me, yes, of course I’ll go. I believe every fellow on this page would, too.

If I’d been given a time to live between 200 A.D. and 1900, I’d probably choose the 1890s. Why? The U.S. was at peace until the first World War and the Restoration Movement was gathering steam.

What year to live? I would have enjoyed living in the middle to late 1800’s during the cowboy era: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cowboy – they worked hard, but they played hard as well. They were a tough breed – had to be in order to survive.

Doug, my husband, is the one I call. No matter what the emergency I trust his sound judgment to advise me as to what to do next. That is so comforting to me. Sometimes when I am calling him, I am on the move to fix the problem myself if it is a medical emergency, but otherwise he is such a “fixer-upper.”

In case of an emergency with our car, we call a repair shop, about two miles from where we live. If the car is unable to be driven to the repair shop, they’ll send a tow truck. As far as our computer, our son knows a good repair person who gives generous senior citizen discounts, plus he actually knows how to repair a computer. 🙂 For medical emergencies, we have 911.

The only news around area churches, is that a lot of folks are on vacation. Half of our small congregation have gone to Louisiana to visit family.

Who I Miss Most?

This is an easy question to answer – my grandmother. She’s been gone from this life since the summer of 1989, but her godly influence still speaks to me in my mind and spirit today (Hebrews 11:4).

Thank you Lord for godly women, in Jesus’ name, Amen!

It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.

What song? Rocky-Top

I think the Nudge was after a spiritual song, but the first that comes to mind is Rocky-top. I’m a TN volunteer fan and we are headed into the conference championship this week. I was born Illini but married orange. Born a Yankee but converted to Tennessee. But as to a favorite song spiritually: The Glory Land Way.

How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.
