Sabbatical – Day 28 – You Make Me New

I wrote this 3 years ago on this day and shared it on my Facebook page. I love these memory reruns from Facebook!!!! They help me see my life over again, and help to remind of lessons from my past. Because sometimes you just need that reminder!

Here is a little rerun from my blogging past. I pray it blesses you this morning!


“Good night, Patti. It’s time to close those eyes and sleep.”

“Mom, I need to say my prayer.”

“Okay, say your prayer.”

“Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take. Amen”

I promise you that it was no easy task for me to fall asleep, after reciting that prayer each night.  I would lay there as a child and try to sleep, but my definition of death, at that time, lay there right next to me…wrestling with my mind and keeping me awake.

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
