STILL TIME FOR SUMMER TRAVEL Many of us wait until the last minute to plan for a vacation. Suddenly, time has slipped away and before you know it the good weather months are passing by. Maybe you would like to take an automobile trip, but haven’t decided where to go. Where you visit depends on how much time you have. Perhaps you are retired and you have all the time in the world. Here are some ideas. If you have never visited the East Coast of the United States consider driving to New York City or flying there, renting a car, KEN BROOKS then driving around the New York and New England areas. Fall is the best time to see the bright colors of yellow, red and brown as trees and plants begin their cooler weather sleep. The “Big Apple” is like no other city on earth. If you have visited before, you will still see sights you haven’t in the past. It’s the most diverse city in the United States. You have the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Times Square, along with thousands of restaurants. Some of the best shopping is here, as well as famous museums and other attractions. Next stop is Boston, the birthplace of independence. You can explore the narrow streets, learn the history of the area and see quaint neighborhoods. From there, you can drive a classic New England route with time to explore the beautiful coastlines of Maine, Rhode Island and Cape Cod. Plus there is the stunning mountain scenery of New Hampshire and Vermont. The colors become vibrant during October. Be sure to take your camera. The great Pacific Northwest is wonderful during the late summer and fall periods. You can take your time and drive from home to the coast, then follow the highways northward to end in Seattle. Driving the California, Oregon and Washington State coastline is most pleasant. The roads are good and most of the scenery is spectacular. You’ll find interesting villages and towns all the way up the coast, which are fun to stop and visit. There will also be nice, clean motels along the way. You might even take a week or so just to get to Seattle. I find that driving not more than 300 miles per day doesn’t take much out of me as does speeding and trying to cover at least 500 or more miles per day. Spend a couple days in both Portland and Seattle, as there is much to do in both. The cities are rather sophisticated so take with you more than blue jeans and a sweater. Prepare for rain. In Portland and Seattle there are very fine “name” hotels. As you work your way north there will be more and more seafood on the menus. Don’t pass up the delights from the sea. It will be fresh and very tasty. Seattle is known for smoked salmon. It’s the best in the world. Be sure to order a large serving. The western coastal route is one of the

day more interesting. You will have an American crew and officers. It will be rather costly when compared to an oceangoing cruise but will be well worth the time and money. Dial 1-866-226-7696 for more information and reservations. If you are into visiting cities, it may interest you to know which are “America’s Snobbiest Cities”. In other words, which city has its nose in the air almost everywhere you go? Number one has to be San Francisco. You have to dress up in many locations at various times of the day depending on the events you are visiting. People have to dress up even to go shopping downtown. The cooler weather may be partially responsible for this. Number two is probably New York City. Its tops for great music events, live theatre, art galleries, and fine dining. Number three is Boston. It’s a college town steeped in history and is the center for the Ivy League universities. The city claims a fine symphony orchestra, brainpower, great bookshops and poor drivers. You will find three days here very interesting. It may surprise you to learn Minneapolis/St. Paul ranks fourth in the snobbiest city category. It is also bookish, indie-music loving, beer drinking and the people are folksy, hikers and many do ice surfing. Some folks fish in the Chain of Lakes where they can bring home good catches. It was no surprise to me when I learned Santa Fe, N.M. ranked number five on this list. Here you will find many good readers, some fine museums, native crafts, an opera house and few sports bars. Wherever you decide to go, I hope you get a lot of enjoyment and beautiful scenery and we will welcome you upon your return home. SENIOR CIRCLE TRAVEL Metro Creative Graphics

There is no city on earth like New York City. It has to be a must on every traveler’s list. You have the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Times Square, along with thousands of restaurants. Some of the best shopping is here, as well as famous museums and other attractions.

more beautiful in the United States. Should you not wish to drive the distance, get yourself to Los Angeles and then take one of the most scenic railway trips in the West by boarding the Coast Starlight, which departs mid-morning arriving in Seattle the second day. Reserve a private room to get a good rest and you can also visit the lounge car as well as the diner. When taking sleeping accommodations your meals in the diner are included. You can rent a car in both Portland and Seattle for your exploration. If time and money are not really tight, book a room on the paddle wheeler steam boat that will cruise you up the Columbia River from Portland for a week. This will also be relaxing. You stop in small towns along the way. Your travel agent can assist you with reservations. Many travelers visit Colorado and its tall mountains. If you are in the mood for this area be prepared to see snow capped mountains that will include Pike’s Peak,

mining towns, ski towns and plan to stay in at least one fine resort for a couple days. You may choose to fly to Denver, rent a car and drive out from there. Plan your trip carefully obtaining maps and other information so you won’t miss a thing. If you are a member of the AAA Auto Club they will supply you with wonderful maps and other material that will help you get around. There are rivers, lakes, national parks and ancient ruins to explore. You’ll never forget your vacation here. New Orleans and its surrounding area are also fascinating. Think about booking a cabin on the Queen of the Mississippi paddle wheel boat and you can be rollin’ on the river for a week. The vessel only recently began its river cruising and I get good feedback from travelers who have already enjoyed the boat. The scenery from a moving boat is always interesting and one never tires of just sitting in a chair watching the world go by. The onboard food will be slightly southern which will make each

THE PLEASANT VALLEY WAR AND THE SUMMER OF 1887 This coming weekend is Pleasant Valley Days in Young, Ariz. It’s a great opportunity to learn about and experience the history of this nearby area. When people think of Young, Ariz., their first thought is not of its beautiful ranges, but of a range war that engulfed the entire region. Here’s a look at the Pleasant Valley War and the summer of 1887. While Young is 52 miles from Payson via today’s roads, it’s just 26 miles as the crow flies. Gisela, south of Payson, is even closer. This is why the Payson area was impacted by TIM EHRHARDT the Pleasant Valley War in a time when horseback was the standard mode of travel. The Pleasant Valley War was a blood feud between the Graham and Tewksbury families. Many people involved, including an area vigilante committee. Different causes have been argued through the years. Some believe it was a sheepmen-cattlemen war and others a case of honest men versus rustlers. Certain things are clear though: one, there was a whole lot of cattle and horse stealing going on, and two, the war was very bloody. Here’s a sampling of newspaper clippings from 1887 as the war heated up.

“Two men went over into the Navajo country and stole 103 head of horses, belonging mainly to Indians. Some of them were the property of ex-sheriff Hubbell. They made no attempt at concealment, but drove them in broad day across the country and up in the Mogollon mountains. The Indians followed in a day or two, accompanied by Mr. Hubbell and a constable. The trail led to Canon creek, just over the rim of the Tonto Basin…” - St. John’s Herald, April 7, 1887 “We do not doubt but they have confederates in this county. From all we can learn there is a chain of them and they pass horses both ways. We suspect if they were followed up closely from Tonto Basin, it would be found they were driven to New Mexico by the way of Canyon Creek, and if the trails of those stolen from the western portion of this county were followed, it would be found they were driven south by way of Tonto Basin. When will the people have energy, vim and determination sufficient to break up this gang? The existence of such a gang for such a length of time, when their rendezvous is so well known, is a burning shame and disgrace to our people.” - St. John’s Herald, May 26, 1887 By the time June arrived in 1887, horse and cattle thievery was happening so much that it was creating a stir throughout a number of counties. The pot was coming to a boil and it was just a matter of time be-

fore a full out war commenced. Sure enough, in August that’s exactly what occurred, as these headlines and clips show. “Three Men and Three Horses Shot Down In a Fight at Tonto Basin.” Arizona Champion, August 13, 1887 More Killing in Tonto Basin Apache Critic, August 20, 1887. Reports of killings still continue to pour in from the Tonto Basin country. It is said that the arms and ammunition to carry on the war are being furnished by some interested parties living at Flagstaff. - Apache Critic, August 27, 1887 More Killing in Tonto Basin John Graham Shot Down. Ed Tewksbury Killed by Sheriff Mulvenon while resisting arrest - Apache Critic, August 27, 1887 Sheriff Owens Kills Andy Cooper and his Brother, and Wounds Two Other Men Apache Critic, September 10, 1887 Return of the Deputy Sheriffs. – The Stories Concerning the Killing of Mulvenon False. – A Bloodless and Futile Pursuit of the Rustlers. - Arizona Champion, September 13, 1887 The remains of old man Blevins have been found in the brush at Pleasant Valley. - Arizona Champion, September 24, 1887 Lastly, there is the climactic battle of 1887. The exact details of which have been debated since. Reports from Pleasant Valley, the first of the week, state that a fight occurred on the

18th last between the Tewksbury and Graham factions in which Joseph Killingswood and a man named Middleton were killed and Thomas Graham wounded, all said to be members of the Graham party. A report of another killing, in which the officers of the law took part, was received here Monday, which in substance is about as follows: On Thursday last at Perkins store, Pleasant Valley, Sheriff Mulvenon and posse of fourteen men in attempting to arrest John Graham and Charles Blevins were met with resistance by the outlaws, who attempted to make a running fight, but before they could discharge their weapons were shot down by the sheriff and his posse. Blevins was killed instantly and Graham lived but two hours - Apache Critic, October 1, 1887 After that, things calmed down somewhat. There was still some killing going on but it was done more quietly and was not on the scale of that summer of 1887. Many people were arrested and trials occurred. However, that was not the end of the blood feud. In 1892 Tom Graham was gunned down in Tempe, allegedly by Ed Tewksbury, who was tried twice but never convicted. The war became the stuff of legend. Zane Grey wrote a fictional account, To the Last Man, during the 1920s. Many other books have been written about the war with “facts” still being debated to this day.

So, the monsoon has arrived — at least in a few places ... Not so much at my house; though when the storms are swirling around the area, the air gets pleasantly cool. It is still hot — and now muggy at times as well. So how do you keep cool in the Rim Country? Well, you know, there are all these great streams and creeks and lakes all around us and they are great for a splash or just dipping your hot, tired feet in the cold water coming off the Rim. Some places, like the East Verde, are good for tubing as well — at least for short stretches. Years ago, on occasion in the summer, my family and I would go down to the Natural Bridge and swim in the spring-fed pool they had there. The pool isn’t there anymore, but it probably had the coldest water I’ve ever been in — except maybe the surf off the central Oregon coast. There is something special about being near creeks. The air is different — it is part of what makes the spots so refreshing. The sound of flowing water is revitalizing too. Combine the cool water, the air and the sounds and not only can you take the edge off the hot weather, you can also get the benefits of a nice vacation over the course of just an hour or so. FOSSIL CREEK

Fossil Creek remains one of the most remarkable streams in Arizona and accessible from Strawberry down a steep, challenging trail.

Fossil Creek has become one of the most distinctive streams in Arizona in the five years since Arizona Public Service electrical company agreed to shut down a historic hydroelectric plant and return the water to the creek. Since the spring water seeps through fissures in ancient layers of limestone and picks up dissolved travertine, it gives the water that unearthly blue-green color. The travertine also precipitates out of the water, forming dikes and dams of drip castle design. It has also become the premier refuge for many native fish and birds. Facilities: No camping or fires along the creek, but great for day use. Access: From Payson, take Highway 87 to Pine and turn on Fossil Creek Road. Continue past all homes to a dirt road. The turn off to the trailhead lies to the right off of the dirt road. Parking is limited, so arrive early. The descent takes about two hours, come prepared for the trek with plenty of water, hats, lots of snacks and time. TONTO CREEK

Tonto Creek boasts great trout fishing in a succession of beautiful ponds that are stocked all summer. This easily accessible stretch of river perfectly combines water and scenery — but you’ll have to overlook the crowds. The lower reaches of Tonto Creek in the Hellsgate wilderness area offer an unforgettable stint of canyoneering. The river returns to civilization, often nearly exhausted, at Gisela, where it waits at the end of Forest Road

417 off Highway 87. Tonto Creek continues into Roosevelt Lake. Facilities: USFS campground streamside along FR 289 and at the FR 269/260 junction, with another along Christopher Creek at FR 260. The historic Kohl’s Ranch rents cabins. Access: From Payson, follow AZ 260 15 miles. EAST VERDE: WATER WHEEL

This little-known treasure just outside of Payson offers one of the best all-around swimming holes in Arizona. The East Verde River emerges from a spring at the base of the Mogollon Rim and flows down past Payson and to the Verde River. Houston Mesa Road and Flowing Springs Road offer ample access. Water Wheel offers the best single swimming hole, complete with a deep pool and 50-foot waterfall. A fire closed the area most people used to get access, but you search for parking after the bridge and first crossing and hike up to the stream. Facilities: Several campgrounds near the stream. Access: Take Highway 87 north from Payson toward Pine and Strawberry. Just outside of Payson, take Houston Mesa Road. Water Wheel lies between the first, bridged crossing and the second crossing, where the stream flows across the road. OTHER CREEKS

Haigler Creek lies at the end of a dirt road, but gets a heavy stocking of trout every week. A popular hiking trail winds through the forest alongside the creek. To reach Haigler, turn off Highway 260 on

the unpaved Forest Road 291, go three miles, then turn right onto Forest Road 200. You’ll come to a trailhead in another five miles. From there, it’s a quarter-mile walk to the creek. Christopher Creek sometimes all but dries up in a drought, but the Arizona Game and Fish Department stocks its small pools and riffles for most of the summer. To gain access, take the turnoff for Christopher Creek from Highway 260, then turn north onto Forest Road 284 toward See Canyon. You’ll find a campground and small pools full of wary fish, shaded by poplars and spruce. Horton Creek lies just one mile from Highway 260, just off the Tonto Creek Hatchery Road. Park at the Horton Trailhead and take the beautiful, two-mile hike through the trees to Horton Creek, which twists and turns through slots in the limestone beneath a forest canopy. The creek sometimes goes dry in its lower reaches, but push on upstream toward the spring to regain the splash of water and work the small pools for wary, wild brown trout. Canyon Creek offers soothing rewards for the adventurous, since it lies well off the highway. Head up onto the Rim on Highway 260 and just past the Young turnoff look for Forest Road 288. Go south to Forest Road 33 and turn east. Continue until you hit Forest Road 34 and turn left. That road soon crosses the creek. Park there and work upstream or downstream to enjoy the small pools.

Smoking isn’t only cause of emphysema BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. Crunchy Baked Fish

Quick and Easy Chicken Dinner on the Grill

Carrot Salad

Fruity Couscous

Grill up flavor Every big, juicy steak deserves to be seasoned with an equally big, bold flavor. Next time you fire up the grill, layer on savory goodness with spices and marinades. They bring out the natural flavor of steaks, ribs, roasts, burgers, chicken and fajitas. Start with a tender, savory cut and there is no need to marinate. Simply rub on a few complementary herbs and spices then sear in the goodness on the grill. Come up with your own combination or let the professionals do the work. Prepared blends, such as those from Mrs. Dash at, are a quick and easy way to give guests great-tasting dishes, salt-free. After all, salt has nothing on the smokin’ flavor of Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend. Herbs and spices aren’t just for entrees. Shake some extra flavor on side dishes and appetizers. Marinades are sauces designed to flavor and tenderize meat, chicken, fish or vegetables. Building a great marinade is a matter of finding the perfect balance of oil, acid and seasonings. Some spend a great deal of time on trial and error in an effort to perfect their recipe. Others leave it to professionals and buy a prepared sauce, such as Mrs. Dash Spicy Teriyaki Marinade. A blend of salt-free seasoning with a touch of pineapple, it adds a kick to beef, chicken, pork or vegetables. Prepared marinades make your entrees juicy, tender and downright delicious. They also make entertaining easy. Place your protein or vegetables in a zip-top bag, fill with your favorite marinade and let it hang out until the guests arrive.

QUICK AND EASY CHICKEN DINNER ON THE GRILL Makes 4 servings; preparation time: 5 minutes; cook time: 12 minutes 4 sheets non-stick aluminum foil, 12 x 18 inches 4, 4-ounce boneless chicken breasts 1-1/3 cups instant rice 12 thin slices red onion 12 thin slices red pepper 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced 4 teaspoons natural butter flavor sprinkles 4 teaspoons Mrs. Dash Original Blend 1-1/3 cups low-sodium chicken broth Preheat grill to medium high. Place four sheets of non-stick aluminum foil on a flat surface. Turn up edges to form a lip. Place 1 chicken breast on each sheet of foil. Arrange 1/3 cup instant rice around chicken breasts. Arrange 1/4 of the red onion, red pepper and zucchini on top of each chicken breast. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon natural butter flavor sprinkles and 1/4 teaspoon of seasoning blend on each chicken breast. Add the balance of the seasoning blend to the chicken broth.

Double fold top on one end; pour 1/3 cup of the chicken broth into each package. Fold ends tightly, leaving room for heat to circulate and rice to expand. Place on grill and cook for approximately 12 minutes. Remove from heat; be careful of steam when opening foil. Remove chicken breasts to serving plate. Stir instant rice and vegetables together, place on plate with chicken breasts and serve.

CRUNCHY BAKED FISH Makes 2 servings; preparation time: 10 minutes; cooking time: 19 minutes Cooking spray 4, 4-ounce tilapia or catfish fillets 3 tablespoons Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper Seasoning Blend Juice from 1/2 lemon 1/2 cup corn flake crumbs Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cooking spray on 9-inch-by-9-inch-by-2-inch pan. Place fillets in pan. Evenly sprinkle tops of fish with 1 tablespoon seasoning blend. Squeeze lemon juice over fish. Toss corn flake crumbs with remaining 2 tablespoons seasoning blend. Carefully top fillets with corn flake crumbs. Bake for 20 minutes or until fish is fork tender.

CARROT SALAD Makes 6 servings; preparation time: 5 minutes 1 pound carrots, grated 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup chopped walnuts 1 cup low-fat fruit-flavored yogurt (pineapple or lemon) 2 tablespoons Mrs. Dash Onion & Herb Seasoning Blend 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar Combine carrots, raisins and walnuts in a medium bowl. Stir yogurt, seasoning blend and brown sugar in small bowl until smooth and well combined. Stir into carrot mixture. Cover and refrigerate until chilled and ready to serve.

FRUITY COUSCOUS Makes 4 servings; preparation time: 15 minutes; cooking time: 5 minutes 1 cup water 2 tablespoons natural butter flavor sprinkles 1/2 cup uncooked whole wheat couscous 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash Original Blend 1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped 1/2 cup dried cranberries 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted* Combine water and natural butter flavor sprinkles in small saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in couscous and seasoning blend. Cover and let stand 15 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork. Stir in apricots, cranberries and almonds just before serving. *To toast almonds, spread in single layer in heavy-bottomed skillet. Cook over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until nuts are lightly browned. Remove from skillet immediately. Cool before using. Source: Mrs. Dash


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I work with a woman who claims she has emphysema. She smokes regularly and finds herself out of breath when coming up the stairs. She is 60. She says when she was 9, a local gas station near her home moved and, in the process, pulled up the gas tanks that provide gas to the pumps. The fumes from the move caused her emphysema. She doesn’t know anyone else with the problem, and there are no class-action lawsuits I can find that cite gas fumes from moving gas tanks as causing emphysema. Will you clarify and talk about emphysema? — E.E. ANSWER: Emphysema is destruction of the millions of air sacs that fill the lungs. It’s through these sacs that oxygen reaches the blood. One of the chief signs of emphysema is shortness of breath when active, as in climbing stairs. Emphysema is one-half of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD. The other half is chronic bronchitis, an inflammation and narrowing of the breathing tubes, filled with pus. The inflamed tubes obstruct airflow into the lungs. The chief sign of chronic bronchitis is a never-ending cough. Smoking is the greatest cause of COPD, emphysema and chronic bronchitis, but not the only cause. In past days, workers in mines inhaling the dust were subject to emphysema, as were people who worked in cotton mills. Those who made a living in grain-processing plants also were subject to COPD. Now stringent regulations protect these workers. An inherited condition, called alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, also leads to emphysema. Alpha-1

antitrypsin tells cells that scrub the interior of air sacs to stop scrubbing when the air sacs are clean. Without its signal, scrubbing goes on, and the air sacs are destroyed. I have never heard of emphysema arising in a situation like your fellow worker describes. She must be happy explaining her condition the way she does. Let her be happy. It’s her way of coping with the illness. She also must be smart enough to know that smoking is harming her greatly, regardless of her emphysema cause. The booklet on COPD explains this common malady in clear terms. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No. 601W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What is the purpose of making all Coumadin users make a separate trip to a nurse for having their blood checked? It’s an additional charge that I cannot afford. Is there any other drug I could use? I am 93. — R.J. ANSWER: I imagine the procedure was instituted so the nurse can change your dose of Coumadin right away if the blood tests indicate that your blood is too thin or too thick. Coumadin is an anticoagulant that stops clots from forming; it really does thin blood. The medicine is prescribed when a person has a condition where clots form and might cause a stroke. Atrial fibrillation is such a condition. You can ask your doctor if you’re a candidate for the new anticoagulant Pradaxa. With it, you don’t need to have the same blood checks.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With new facts to work with, you should feel more confident in moving ahead. But continue to do so at an unhurried pace so you can spot details you might otherwise miss. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Taking on that new workplace project could be one of your smarter career moves. Expect a surprising show of support from someone who had always been a critic. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel you’re too busy to undertake a new responsibility. But check it out before making any decisions. What you learn could persuade you to change your mind. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You feel quite content enjoying all the comforts of home right now. But the urge to travel grows stronger, and by week’s end, you could begin packing your bags. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A hectic period begins to ease up, but that doesn’t mean the Fine Feline can do much catnapping these days. You need to finish those old tasks and prepare for new ones. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Expect to get some good news about your financial situation by week’s end. But it could still be too early to rush out with a long shopping list of things to buy. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your management skills make an impression on some workplace VIPs who might be looking for someone like you to take on an upcoming project. Good luck. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Meeting a former adversary might be unsettling at first. But time has softened hard feelings, and you could be on the brink of starting a new relationship. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A troubling situation close to home might cause you to change your travel plans. But getting all the facts before you act might cause you to reconsider. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be quite alone right now in deciding to support a major workplace shift. But others will join you as new information supports your bold move. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A former co-worker returns with news that could persuade you to reassess recently made plans. Be sure to consult with a trusted colleague before you act. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your motives behind a recent decision could be called into question by a rival. But once you present the facts, all doubts will be resolved. Enjoy an arts-rich weekend. BORN THIS WEEK: While you love being the center of attention, your generous heart allows you to share the attention with others. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

RIM REVIEW • JULY 17, 2013


Focus on the Bible’s promise FROM PAGE 5

Awake, my soul, and sing of him who died for thee, and hail him as thy matchless King through all eternity. Dear Lord cause my soul to sing in the midst of my concerns acknowledging that You are high on your throne for eternity, there is none other higher. Cause me to be faithful in giving you praise for dying on my behalf. Crown him the Lord of love; behold his hands and side, rich wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified. Praise be to You Lord that because of Your great love for me and faithfulness to the promise of Abraham, You fulfilled Your promise to Your people. No angel in the sky, can fully bear that sight, But downward bends his burning eye, at mysteries so bright. Lord may I learn from the angels in their quest of praising you. May my eyes gaze at you in awe of what you have done on the cross. Crown him the Lord of life, who triumphed o’er the grave, and rose victorious in the strife for those he came to save. Praise Your name Lord that You have conquered the grave of death triumphing in great victory causing my life to be eternal with yours. Lord may I cling to you in all things in all ways knowing You are my Savior. Thank you Lord for conquering the grave All hail, Redeemer, hail! For thou hast died for me; thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity Praise be to Your name precious Lord, your fame and glory will never fade but instead will last forever and a day in eternity. Lord may I keep this focus, Your focus, on You in perspective of my earthly life that will fade and eternity that will never fade away. Keep my heart and mind in a place of persisting You in praises and prayers. Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time, ? Creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime. Dear Lord for eternity you will reign! Praise be to Your holy precious name! All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou has died for me; ?Thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity. Yes Lord praise be to Your name for dying for me. Thank you Lord! Your Turn to Adjust Your Kaleidoscope What is your focus these days? Are you overwhelmed with all the happenings of life? Will you trade your mind traffic for praise to the One on high? Worship Him in His holiness! Seek Him and He will respond! Praise Him for who He is! © Copyright 2012 Simone Lake.
