a clean heart...

Psalm 5110 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.  11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.  12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.  13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

Is that your Palo Verde tree or the one from town?

I have repeated that verse hundreds of times on Sunday mornings - as it is part of our Lutheran Church Liturgy. But I had no idea where it came from. Thank you for telling me where to find it in our Bible.

I like the Psalm. Around here in the country, I never met so many who lie all the time about anything. Maybe that is why they live out here because they are such low lifes and sick and they do not change. I think that Psalm is beyond many in America. I was shocked 20 years ago when I first started hearing the lies even from church people. One female told a visiting dope dealer that her daughter was a doctor. (In fact her daughter did not finish high school and had 3 children and was not married). And so on. I mostly never say anything. I live in what the sheriffs say and what is thought of as one of the best areas around San Antonio. (But a man of the cloth in San Antonio once called us their poor country cousins). And so life goes.

Last Thursday and Friday were two hectic days. First, after 1 1/2 weeks I got my F-150 truck back after a rodent chewed a soy wire under the truck. I had it wrapped with Capsasion (pepper tape) from Honda. It runs smooth. Then my Chinese Crested dog was minutes from taking her last breath. Took her to the doctor. Her infection levels were highest and dehydrated. He gave her saline and antibiotic and said she was in renal failure. He did not know problem and did emergency surgery. When she was spayed at the San Antdonio Humane Shelter, they removed her uterus and left the ovaries. That put her in annoying heat every 6 months. This doctor then did a hysterectomy and took out the ovaries. One ovary was the size of a baseball and her whole body infected and the other ovary was swollen too. She made it through the surgery, then hours later she did wake up, then she urinated later and ate some food after several days of not having food, she ate some food. Today she is doing everything normally (even pooped this morning). It is a miracle she lived. She is cut all the way down from the chest and is healing well. She is bright-eyed and even barked. (The first thing she did at the hospital when she woke up was try to bite the doctor). What an amazing hospital.

What a fitting thought for us to strive to obtain the focus of this verse in view of temptations in our present day.
