Okay, I really enjoyed your blog, tried to post a comment, but the novice, rookie, non-blogger that I am didn't know what domain to select and can't get it accepted. So here it is:
God's will vs. self's will. Wouldn't it be nice if God used "neon signs". However, as we deepen our relationship with God, we begin to realize that those signs come in subtle, yet profound ways, that could only be divine messages. Once in God's will, there will still be struggles, but having the power to rely on God and the Holy Spirit's presence can continue to reassure us that God's will rather than self will will give us comfort and further direction for our lives.
E-mail or give me a call and let's go on a road trip to Sun City sometime soon.

I'll be following your blog with interest. I got a chuckle about the one titled "Don't fence me in" with Gene Autry. Our community choir men sang a version of that song with cowboy hats, colored kerchiefs, and tuxes.
And this one:
Well......not sure how a "blog" works....but the site is nice and easy to follow....and the scenery is a contrast to the mountains of the great Northwest for sure.......
You will be thrilled to know that Autry is a fine native Texan and descendant of one of the famous Texans who died at the Alamo (bordering on "sacred" to all Texans), so there is more than entertainment, rodeo, raising stock for rodeos, and owning a broadcast station and a baseball team, and being a decent human being all his life, in his little tree of influence and activity....
"Don't fence me in" (to the modern mind) is a bit "contrarian" to your premise of obedience but is a nice play on the idea theologically, that there is no freedom without commitment to the source of it....
You see the problem. I am learning how to blog, and lots of other people who would like to join the discussion don't know how to do it yet, either. If you know how to comment on a blog, could you please comment and tell us how to do it? PW
