10 p.m. and it’s the first time today I have checked my phone, and laptop.


Last night I felt my old self again, so decided that I would walk the beach this morning, have lunch in my apartment, and drive home. Of course I hit all the school traffic, but actually felt even better when I saw my home.

I had an invitation to go dancing for an hour this evening, Tomorrow night I am going to a party, so had to pick up items to make a huge Sherry Trifle, but I much prefer brandy, or rum. I bought some really good moist cake, and then poured rum over it, and then it soaks in.

Then when I got back, I made up 4 pints of jelly/jello, with water and the juice of the cans of fruit cocktail. It is now cooling down. Then tomorrow morning I will make bird’s custard, and just before the party I will top with whipped cream, and shaved…

BCAM 2021: Day #16

No Half Measures

Medication can often be given to a patient in a variety of ways — pills, liquid to be swallowed, injections and infusions. Typically pills or liquid to be swallowed can be administered at home, which most injections have to be done in a doctors office and most infusions at an infusion center or hospital setting. Patients have little to no control over the way to get medicine or the place. Whether medicine can be injected in a doctor’s office or hospital setting is also likely subject to a variety of agreements/contracts between so many different companies, including pharmaceutical companies, the doctors themselves, practices, hospitals, insurance companies, etc.

In short, it’s a complicated mess.

And the one person who usually doesn’t understand or know any of the issues behind all of this is the patient.

Who is the one getting and paying for the medicine.

Doesn’t seem fair at all.

From Psalm 5:11-12:  “But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them ever sing for joy.  Spread Your protection over them, so that those who love Your name may exult in You.  For You bless the righteous, O Lord; You cover them with favor as with a shield.”

Crying out to our Father

Praying, please hear our voices

Facing distress, listen O God

Standing here, our only choice


Bringing Holy Deliverance

Saving forsaken sinners

Abounding and steadfast love

Cooling sin, let it simmer


Taking a knee before God

Marking truthful paths with hope

Singing a new song, filled with joy

Walking along life’s tightrope


Knowing our thoughts, gracious God

Following His faithful love

Helping reconnect life’s dots

Rescuing from sin’s tight glove


Conductor shouts “All Aboard”

Covering us with God’s favor

Sending Grace, freely to all

Offering life…

Souls crying out


Crushed in spirit

Turning to God


Seeking refuge

Comfort and hope

Righteous Father

Hearing our cries


Evil departs

Darkness transforms

Brightest light calls

Finding our Rock


Coming to God

He promises


Breathing goodwill


Lord calls us back

Humble and glad

Our troubles wane

Praising with joy


Faith surrounds hope

Love never fails

Unselfish grace

Redeeming us

Shattered Hopes

From Romans 10:12-13:  “For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who call Him.  For, ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'”

Sitting here on a quiet, morning dawn

Drinking coffee, warming a drowsy mind

Passing the time with memories, all wrong

Looking for warmhearted hopes, none to find


Wishing countless troubles would go away

Thinking another day will bring some hope

Realizing now, my dreams are crushed today

Watching out the window, through a hopeless scope


Opening a Bible, found by God’s Grace

Inviting me in, His Word reaches out

Sensing a way to change life’s dismal pace

Offering a new path, without a doubt


Witnessing Christ Jesus on a cruel Cross

Accepting my Savior, no longer lost
