My Story Revive me again
« on: November 09, 2017, 03:35:57 AM »
It is again time for a new thread.

My previous threads:

The title to this thread is a reference to one of the Psalms I read today - a well underlined one! A reminder that without the Lord, I can't stand up to the pressure.

Psalm 71:17 O God, from my youth you have taught me,
and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.
18    So even to old age and gray hairs,
O God, do not forsake me,
until I proclaim your might to another generation,
your power to all those to come.
19    Your righteousness, O God,
reaches the high heavens.
You who have done great things,
O God, who is like you?
20    You who have made me see many troubles and calamities
will revive me again;
from the depths of the earth
you will bring me up again

The title of this Psalm in the ESV version is Forsake me not when my strength is spent 

Thank you for all your support throughout this seemingly neverending journey.

Both my h. and I have recently had birthdays, and this year, due to his distancing, it has been rather difficult for me. I think that the loss of my father is also weighing on me. I am at a bit of a low point.

In my last post, I mentioned that it was h.'s birthday that day and I had sent him a birthday message which was well received. In the evening, he called all the kids to go with him to a local pizzeria and warned our eldest s25 that OW would be going with him, that it was his birthday so he wanted her to be there. They went and he had brought her and her kids. He told our kids that he was so happy to get them all together.

The next day, he changed his whatsapp profile picture and tagline - he put a picture of the popular T-shirt that says Legends are born in November and "The worst day sailing is better than the best day working!".  The previous tagline had been there since he started on whatsapp - it said "Sometimes life turns you inside out and then you discover that inside out is the right side." Very MLC, I used to think. This new one is one of my favorites and it is strange because he doesn't sail any more (I think). Also, OW doesn't enjoy it.

Enough about that!

I am planning a road trip to Uruguay/Argentina in January with my d who will be 23 by then. I think it will be good for both of us. I will get a trial run in my car next week as I intend to to drive to the capital of Brazil from Rio, with a little dog who belongs to my daughter's friend who has just relocated there. My mother says she wants to come along - let's see... I am glad of company, especially to keep the dog in order, but I don't know if her health is up to it. It is roughly a 1200 km drive there  :o

My eldest s25 is having his knee operation on Nov 20 to remove a sliver of bone and I should just be back from Brasília then. He will be laid up for a while, not looking forward to that, he is very energetic and doesn't take easily to being restricted ::)

S24 is still looking for a job, I am glad he is at university now!

Thankful for all my mercies!

Welcome to your new thread, Mitzpah.   :)

The trip sounds wonderful.  Good bonding time.
That's a long drive for your mom, but how very sweet she wants to go with.


With her permission, a quote from a recovered MLCer: 
From my experience if my H had let me go a long time ago, and stop pressuring me, begging, and pleading and just let go I possibly would have experienced my awakening sooner than I did.

I hope your mom is able to make the trip. It sounds like it would be a nice experience for both of you.

Welcome to your new thread, Mitz.

Are you going to drive to Brasília by the motorway or my other types of roads? Motorway may be more comfortable for your mum - but less fun.

1200km from Rio to Brasília...  :o The distances thing is interesting.

When those of you in big countries talk of thousands of km, many many hours driving - or when I see someone writing that it is only a " 3 hours drive each way" I always smile. Those distances/hours are huge for me (for a Portuguese).

1200Km would put me roughly in France - had crossed the country northeast to Spain and Spain to France; 3 hours would leave me in our capital if going south or in Spain if going North or East - West there is only the Atlantic.

I hope your mom does go on the trip. It will do her a world of good to have a change of scenery.

Thinking of you, Mitz.  I'm not writing much lately, but I do come to see what you write.  I get the feeling of being down; you have a lot on right now, it makes this all the harder. 

Sometimes all we can do is place one foot in front of the other, I do hope your trip goes well!
