TITLE: The Lables Of Life
By Deborah Shepard


As I,started out this my reflections have been,the last two high windys days about 75 miles per hour.Things were flying all over the place,our storage tent was blown to the other side of the yard.I,have labled these two days,a peaceful calm,in the eye of the storms encompassing us all around.It will be like this for a few more days,the one consolation is the Lord,has answered our prayers,we had power on where other areas around didn't.We know for faith assurence that the Lord,will sustain us through these high winds.

The word lables cover many things,in life, such as the personal,emotinal, mental,spiritual,lables placed on each one of us in todays society.Every product requires and lable and instructions with them.For the past month I,have experienced the glacieral cough,the slit and glacier dust get into the lungs,and you just have to purge,and stay in a constant prayer vigil.It has been most intense at time I,have a shortness of breath.All I,can do is call on the Lord,to open my breating passage,and rest and heal in His gracious arms.

So here goes the time to read all of the cough medicine lables.Some were good other had no effect on me.I,have been praying daily I,would well enough to contribute to the weekly writing challange,praise the Lord,here I am,there was this thought that came to my mind.This is my lable to handle this intense coughing period.

(1)part cough medicine

(1) part of being a prayer warrior

(1) part daily scripture reading and devotions.

(1) part calling on the Lord,Jesus to heal from this intense coughing.

In my earlier years I, was labled the independent,adventerous,and high spirited child.As time went on my lable changed to,the determined,adventerous,high spirited young women.In my years in my 20s-30s,I was labled,as a crusader for Jesus Christ.In Alaska, some lable me as the wilderness women,who is a prayer warrior.The greatest lable of all is that I,am child of the living God.A native friend called me Iron Talon,once you get your feet planted you can not be moved.This the way the Lord,had created me for the purposed he had designed for my life from the beginning of my life.So from this day forth I,shall be glad to wear the lable,of being and obedient servant for the Lord.My life instructions shall be to walk in the light and rigteouness,of the living God.

I,can lable this day as one of,a renewed spirit,and a joyful heart.Each day will be a vigil and revival of my walk with the Lord.This is the day where through His,gracious mercy and tender love,I,will be set free form this condition of my lungs.To this I,shall praise the Lord,in the highest.

A very blessed New Year,2004 to all of you.May the Lord,shower you all with precious blessing,and a spirit renewed.

You have some good thoughts here, the only thing that detracts from this though is the use of commas, and unnecessary punctuation. Also, a spell check, and grammar before submitting will be very helpful in bringing clarity to your work.

The bible teaches us that the power of life and deaf is in the tongue and those who love it will eat it's fruit. I speak deliverance to you right now, and please know We can do all things through Christ who strenghtens us, II Corithians 4:17 tells us, Looking not at the things which are seen, for the things which are seen are temporary and the things which are unseen are eternal, May God Bless your soul and heal your body, in the Name of Jesus, I pray your recovery...thank you for writing in your afflictin and May God Bless you....
