God works many wonders

    Thursday, March 27, 2008, 2:58 PM [General]

    I got online this morning and received such a blessing! I was actually one of five picked to winthe Time Life "Songs 4 Ever" Christian music box set and let me tell you I am so excited. I am at a turning point, I really believe, in my faith and if this does not tell me that God is here with me all the way then I don't know what will. I have been going to a class at church on Fasting & Praying and last night our pastor really had me thinking of some things that I, personally, do and he really made me think of where I should be and what I should be doing to build a closer relationship with God and I so very much want that. So after getting home last night I really took a closer look at myself and  where I want to be and prayed. I spent some quality time with God that I had been lacking and really put it all on the line. Now this morning I recieve this blessing plus. An older lady from church, who has not called me since I have known her, she is like an extended family of my dad's so it has been a few years, called and left a message on my phone that she had been thinking of me and just wanted me to know that I was in her heart and that she loved me and would see me in church Sunday. So to make this short :) I received 2 blessings (that touched my heart tremendously) in one day and want to give GOD all the PRAISE!  HE IS WONDERFUL & I LOVE HIM WITH EVERY PIECE OF ME!

    I am so excited! I am participating in the Heart Walk this month for the American Heart Association. This is my very first walk ever and I am so looking forward to it. The hardest part is asking for donations. It is something I am not good at or is easy for me to do. I am glad I am here to walk and look forward to doing many, many more in the future. If you would like information or would like to make a donation for me I would so appreciate it and will give you the necessary information. God is Great and this is one way we can spread His word.

    My Heart is heavy today

    Tuesday, March 4, 2008, 6:40 PM [General]

    My heart is heavy today. We had a prayer request from a church member this morning regarding a young girl who just received her driver's license and was driving with her younger brother and a friend and she accidently cut someone off and they road raged her and she got scared and ran off the road. Upon bringing the SUV back onto the road it rolled and the friend was killed instantly. Her brother suffered a broken nose and she suffered a lot of terrible wounds. This happened yesterday afternoon sometime and the follow up email stated she past away last night. My heart just breaks. Do we not understand the meaning of caring for others? Do we not understand that what we do does affect others? I don't know about the other driver and if they were caught or what but I do know about forgiveness but how does that happen in a situation like this? I pray for the families of these kids. How can road rage happen and how can we stop it? Do we know who is in the car ahead of us or do we even care?

    A Great Day!

    Saturday, March 1, 2008, 5:11 PM [General]

    Today has been a great day! The weather is finally warm and I am looking forward to Spring. I am blessed by the friends I have made here on BN and am looking forward to forming lasting friendships with every one of them and hopefully more too.  I am just thankful for today. I have a wonderful husband who God has blessed me with and I thank Him every day for sending him into my life 18 years ago. He is off to work and they are saying next week-end they are going on 7 days 12 hour shifts and we are so not looking forward to that but they told him Thursday it was starting this week-end so we are glad for one more free Sunday so he can attend church tomorrow evening with me.   God Bless all of you and thank you for accepting me into your lives and friendships!

    God is GREAT!

    Monday, February 25, 2008, 4:17 AM [General]

    Praise God! Felisha & I sang @ church tonight "Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone) by Chris Tomlin and though this is our first time singing together & singing in front of the church we did a great job if I do say so myself. A lot of people were congratulating us on singing this song and said it touched them. That is what was important to me to touch that one person who needs to know that God can take away whatever you need released from if we just remember to turn to Him. His mercy reigns. If you haven't heard it please find it and listen to it. I loved it from the first moment I heard it and knew I needed to sing it.  I then had to take a trip to the ER--I thought I had a PE (blood clot in my lung) again but the doctor there said it did not look like I had one but my INR (I am on Coumadin) was very high so he wouldn't have been able to do anything anyway so I was able to come home but need to contact my family doctor this morning so that is what I am going to do and perhaps she can clear up a few things for me.  I am feeling better from my bout with the flu so I am on my road to recovery but still feel really worn down.  I just want to praise God for letting us sing today though we have both been through illnesses this week and last.  Also, I want to give God praise because her youngest (child-son) was baptized this evening. He is only 7 but told his mom he wants to live like God. I think that is so fantastic especially at his age. To live a child's wondrous life again and to be born & raised in the church to always know God's Word. My life was not like that but since coming to AR my parents have found their way to church though when we were growing up it never happened I am happy for them but often wonder what I had missed by not being raised with Christian parents.  I am saved & baptized now so I know I am on the right path--it just took me a few years to find my way.

    It's been a few days ...

    Saturday, February 23, 2008, 11:01 PM [General]

    It's been a few days but I have been quite sick with the flu. It seems like it just made itself at home with me. I am not feeling quite so bad as I have been but am still feeling the effects of being sick for 2 weeks.  I am singing with my best friend, Felisha, at church tomorrow evening and so I am doing my best to be a little more active but I am not at 100% but neither is she (she started with a sore throat last night). We are going to sing tomorrow evening though as God will see us through. We are singing "Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone) by Chris Tomlin after her son (her youngest child) gets baptized. We have been trying for 3 weeks now to sing it and then her son talked to her about getting baptized so we now know why it was not meant to be us singing it before now.  I will let everyone know how it goes. I am actually looking forward to it as I LOVE that song.

    Just sitting here pondering

    Friday, February 15, 2008, 10:46 PM [General]

    Had an ok Valentine's Day yesterday. Ron worked overnight as usual but I was tired anyway so just worked in my Women of the Bible workbooks. I so love doing them and love learning how to be a "better" woman by studying their ways.  I came across another verse that I am memorizing and adding to my list of inspirationals.  It is Psalm 55:22 "Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved."  I am learning that the Book of Psalm is a favorite of mine.  It has a lot of verses that help me through whatever trials I seem to be going through.

    One of my many inspirational verses

    Monday, February 11, 2008, 4:37 PM [General]

    Psalm 13:5  "But I trust in Your unfailing love. I will rejoice because You have rescued me."  I am a "newbie" in Christ. I attended church as a child but I believe a lot of us do that because of our parents' wants or our friends are "doing it".  I had started attending Refuge General Baptist Church in Lake City AR the beginning of September 2007 and was baptized at the end of that month. I have truly felt God, in the many months since, calling to me and pointing out His plan for me. I have fallen a couple of times and thank the Lord Above for my wonderful church family, my husband, and my new best friend who have all helped me in the direction I know God is directing me in. I have felt called to spread His Word and am looking forward to starting a Bible Study on the Women of the Bible first and then another on the Couples of the Bible. I am very interested in learning more about these subjects and am already researching these subjects in the Bible and online. I turn to God everyday for direction and am beginning to be "comfortable" in His calling for me.
