Day 30 — You

It seems fitting to me to give thanks today for each of You on this our 30th day of Giving Thanks here at The White Stone. It all began a morning in June 2003 when I emailed four of you a few words of commentary on the verse of Scripture that spoke to me that morning. You are still with me. I am so grateful. And grateful for every one of you that have come along since. Thank you for your love and prayers all these years.

You all have been so good for me. Your accountability has kept me going to the Scriptures, perhaps without you, I would not have been faithful. Thank you for helping me.

Thank you too for the thousands of prayers that you have prayed — we don’t know all the miracles our Father, has performed just because we asked.

Thank you for your attentive spirits and words of concern and encouragement when you read between the lines sensing that I needed a word from you.  Thank you especially for your prayers in those times.

Thank you for understanding and encouraging me when I stepped out in faith to take a new name – Kathie Whitestone.
(If you are too new here to know that story, click HERE)
And then again when you overwhelmingly shared my happiness as I became Kathie Whitestone Thompson.
Oh, what a day!!
Our wedding day was neither traditional nor conventional, but it sure was fun!
And for these 30 days of November perhaps we have like so given thanks.

Well, Dear Ones, thank you.  I hope we have many more years together to share JESUS and His Word. Come to think about it — we have all eternity! Now that’s a reason to give thanks!!!

Isaiah 57:  21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
14 And shall say, `Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way; take up the stumbling block out of the way of My people.'”
15 For thus saith the high and lofty One who inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
via Isaiah 57:14-16 KJ21 – And shall say `Cast ye up cast ye up – Bible Gateway.

Our love to you all. Let’s keep giving thanks.

Pierce the Darkness with The LIGHT,


Day 29 — Home

So thankful, so glad to be home.
A safe place; a place of refuge from the world.
A place with pleasant privileges and responsibilities to perform – and time to do them!  Makes me smile big.  🙂

 I can say no more than this: there is a middle-aged woman for whom I would like for you to pray. Home for her is in real jeopardy. My prayer is for full truth to be revealed and if her present Home is justified it will remain. Moreover that she will experience JESUS at Home in her heart through all this.

And now that I am Home. We can look and plan and do Christmas!
Home for Christmas – images of more than sugar plums are dancing in my head. Giving thanks for all that surrounds Home, it can only make Christmas full of joy this year.

John 14:
23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.

And all of us said: Amen!

Brave the Dark with The LIGHT,

Holy Spirit


I am SO thankful for Him. For the work He does. For the healing He brings when we have been wounded; even if the majority of the wound was self-inflicted because we did not quickly enough run to Him for comfort, solace, understanding, and wise counsel.

May each of you today experience the truth that you are securely held in the palm of His Hand, even in Nineveh.  In case you missed yesterday’s posting, click HERE.

Day 27 — That God loves Jonah

Philippians 1:6 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
6 being confident of this very thing, that He who hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the Day of Jesus Christ.

A little before 8:00 AM Monday, November 28, 2011, I will be in Nineveh and I will be there as Jonah was in his Nineveh. This may not sit well with all my readers but it is what it is.

My Nineveh is Federal Court Jury Selection. I am Jonah. To the degree I am Jonah I will spare you.  Albeit I have spent more than 3 days in the belly of the whale over this.

My sojourn into Nineveh – by the way I got a chuckle this morning when I realized that ancient Nineveh is in now-days Iraq – how àpropos! In ancient Nineveh there was great repentance — I don’t expect that in the Nineveh to which I am going.  However if there were I would rejoice!

I am grateful that ABBA loves this Jonah. And I am grateful for the work He has done in this Jonah – for you see I just deleted a paragraph that I personally wanted to leave in. I removed it because it would not be honoring to HIM (truthful about Nineveh but not honoring to my ABBA) so I hit the delete key — that is to HIS credit, not mine.

I am Jonah. And to Nineveh I will go. (I have already been to Tarshish.)  Don’t you pity the folks in Nineveh? 🙂

Taking The LIGHT to the Dark,

That I Can Ask You to Pray

Day 26 – That God is God

Even when life is more tragic than the mind can believe.

I just received tragic news and a request that IDOKs please pray for Linda Hollinghead. Her husband died last night totally unexpectedly. A brain tumor they did not know he had ruptured and there was nothing that could be done to save him.  Please pray for Linda and the family. My heart is broken for her. Thank you for every prayer.
