The Voice of One Crying . . .

Okay, Okay, I’m a blogger. . . by default. I woke up this morning missing something very crucial to the success of my day. I have no voice. No voice!

I stumbled into the kitchen, steered myself towards the coffee, angled myself out of Tom’s line of vision so he wouldn’t ooze his happy hyper “the world is yours for the taking” morning self on me, but he saw me and cheerfully bubbled something uplifting. I opened my mouth and said “accccghkk.” He gave me his look that says, “You are such a pessimist!!” and asked me how I was feeling. Again, I said, “accccghkk!!” Nothing would come out, I had no voice. How am I supposed to wake Tommy up if I can’t yell up the stairs??

Three cups of coffee later, I still have no voice. I’m finding it very relaxing, it has sort of an introspective feel to it, or philosophical. Like everybody’s gonna line up today to see what I write on my scratch pad as I try to impart my wisdom. Then I remembered: The Blog. That’s the ticket. Today’s blog is yesterday’s scratch pad. So here I am. Hopefully, all my blogs won’t be about me. Probably some will be about Eva. And I’ll try to get some verses in there along the way to give you something of substance that will get you through the day.

I might as well start with my signature verse, Isaiah 50:4. I found this verse back in the day when everyone was walking around saying, “Word Up?” I would always think (and never say because I hate to talk and didn’t have a blog back then), “Word Up, honey, let me tell you about Word Up. Word Up’s the holy Word of God that sustains the weary, frees the oppressed, makes you wanna start your day like Tom S with a smile and a kick in your step and makes you wanna bend down and lend a hand to the one who is weary and hurting." Go ahead and do it today – lend a hand to someone who needs it. Share the Word.

Isaiah 50:4 - “The Sovereign Lord has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.”
