Dear Hearts and Gentle People,
 
It was on the news tonight that all the boys who were trapped in the flooded cave in Thailand were rescued, as well as the Coach.
It is so sad that one of the S.E.A.L team members died in the process of setting the lines.  He was a hero indeed!
It was noted that as soon as the last one was rescued, the pump system crashed and the whole cave filled to the top with water.  Many supplies were lost, but no lives! Surely the entire universe is happy for their rescue.  What a joy to see such teamwork among the international rescuers.  It is interesting that the boys will be spending some time in a monastery before they go back to their families. 
 These boys had spent much time in the last two weeks in meditation and prayer. Thank God they had a mentor who could keep them calm and focused, and who was teaching them the power of faith.  (Remember the Old Testament quote, restated in the Bible’s New Testament, “The just shall live by his faith”). 
I pray that this experience will be noted in the heavens, and that they may become spiritual leaders in the future,  in addition to excellence in whatever else they do.  God IS IN THE LIFE BUSINESS! He will see that spiritual leaders will rise where they need to be.  Malala, the Muslim girl that was shot in the head for going to school, is already on her way to a Nobel Peace Prize.  I pray that all the experiences that carve our character will be an inspiration in the future to untold generations.

To my “Dear Friends and Gentle People”
What kind and welcoming words from all of you!
To niant2 I notice a lot of changes too – but changing one’s mind is not a new thing is it?
Thank you Sue, and I do sing, as a matter of fact.  My most recent joy was participating in the chorus for a performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with the East Texas Symphony in Tyler.  (Sometimes known as “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”).  What an amazing song about brotherhood!  “Seid umschlungen, Millionen!”  Be embraced, millions!  Beethoven had it right!
And thank you, Ray, for your warm, fuzzy and legible words!  Older than thunder – you and me both!
Thank you, Amethyst – your words have always been helpful on this forum.
And Clency,  what a sweet thought,  the sun dawning in our hearts. . . (actually my name was my mother’s idea).  What does “Domtia” mean?
Thank you, Sophie Veronica,  how kind of you to include so many others in the refugee situation.  Welcoming strangers was an important directive in the 3rd Epochal Revelation:  Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him:  for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.  Ye shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child  (Exodus 22:21-22)
Thank you, Roger!  I hope to be a strong contributor, even though I don’t TR!
Thank you, Brad, for the re-focus.  Our hang-ups can sometimes just be our own minds!
Howdy, Steve.  Yes indeed I am a Dixieite.  But I had to become naturalized.  I was a Yankee from Chicago, and it took me 10 years to start feeling like a Texan.  Yes, my husband is a piano technician (RPT).  His folks are from Scranton, Pa, later Massachusetts.  My folks are from Butler, Pa, later Chicago.   Yankees all the way. . .
C Major and Sunrise?    How cool is that?  No sharps, no flats, or accidents – oops, accidentals. 
Mozart’s Sonata in C Major is one of the most charming and accessible pieces written and it was composed later in his life.   It was one of the first Mozart pieces I learned.  I look forward to hearing your piece.
By the way, according to Wikipedia, “the German key notation differs from the English system in two respects, namely that B natural is referred to by the letter H, and B flat by the letter B itself”. 
I look forward to participating with all of  you on this amazing website!
May the 4th be with you all!

Dear Friends and Supporters of the Work of God on Nystoria,
I introduce myself as Song at Sunrise.   I choose that name because that is a translation of my real name, Carole Dawn Mathews.  My grandmother was probably of American Indian origin and often they use descriptions for names.  I have been observing this site for years.  I never considered myself a candidate for a TR, so in observing the responses of all of you, I considered myself a participant. 
My mother’s family is from Lithuania, and my husband’s family is from northern Poland.  His name in Polish means “Walker”.  So I gather that proceeding in the forward direction is my destiny! Incidentally, our families close to each other!  I feel that God works things out centuries in the past to make the present what it is.
We are both musicians, and he tunes pianos and repairs them.  I teach and perform in various ways, hoping to bring the harmony of the Kingdom of God to all who hear.
Two days ago I had the memory of my childhood an incident that is special for now.  I lived in Chicago, in an apartment that had a picket fence around it, which was good because we lived close to a busy street.  I wanted to roam a little, and got hung up by the seat of the pants on that picket fence! I got to bawling pretty loud, and my mother came running.  She got me down, and I got a spanking. What is funny is that yesterday, while visiting a random garage sale, the first thing that caught my eye was an oil painting of a little boy (about the age I was) hung up by his shirt sleeve on an iron fence, and he was crying.  What a coincidence!  Was I being shown that it was time to “get off the fence” and sign up for this blog?  Sometimes we are caught on a fence for a long time and can’t get down until someone helps us. 
Thank you, Ron for the encouragement! 
I pray for those refugees at the southern border of my dear state of Texas that seek the freedom to just live may find, not just peace and encouragement, but also the courage and patience to trust God – for all things really do work out for the good of those who put their trust in Him. 
I pray that all who seek the face of God may find meaning in the simple things they do.
God bless all of you and thank you!
