Update from the Pilgrim Father

The pilgrim has returned from his 6-week stay in Dallas, TX and the Ozarks in Arkansas. I was there getting treatment for my depression and other issues I've been struggling with. I am feeling much better but there is still a long journey ahead of me.

My writing juices which had pretty well dried up have started to gurgle beneath the surface and I'm grateful to God for that.

This evening I went back and read all of my entries on my Pilgrim Song web site. As I read the posts, prose and poems I was reminded of where I once was...before the deep depression began to strangle and choke me. The last year has been horrendous. I haven't posted on Pilgrim Song for over 1 year. I was dry. I'm still dry but at least I'm thirsty.

Please pray for the pilgrim as he re-adjusts to life in the real world.

Check out the posts on Pilgrim Song where I have shared some of my poems written in some of the darkest hours over the past five years.


Thank you so much for your prayers for the ol' pilgrim over the last few months. It has been a scary journey and I'm not "out of the woods" yet. Thank you Terry for keeping the Pals blog going. Special thanks are due to Felisol. Your encouraging comments over the past few months have been such a blessing. Thank you so much for standing with me.

Dear Pilgrim Father David,
I'm so glad to learn you have come this far.
Keep on to what you have, so that no one can take it away from you!
After God's promises we will expect you to come wiser and stronger "out of the woods."
And "when it goes downwards, you shall say upwards," and so it shall be.
Oh, Father David,the harvest is great, and the workers are few.
I am glad the Lord has educated you to be a leader and a pathfinder for people of our time.
Your trials will lead to greater understanding about the huge need among the people.
Bless you for returning to your fold.
One step and one day at a time.

Hebr.4 : 11Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

12For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

13Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

14Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

15For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

16Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
From Felisol
