Dear God, show us the road
that you have chosen for us,
and give us the courage
to walk down it... Amen

He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. He bestows rain on the earth; he sends water upon the countryside. The lowly he sets on high, and those who mourn are lifted to safety. -Job 5:9-11

So Much, So Little...

I do have so much to share with you.
  • Last week Jesse-Ray was at 4-H camp. First time he's been away from us. I so missed him.
  • We had flooding here at the house. (I have pictures)
  • I got the estimate for damage to my car - $4000.00.
  • We are going to Washington fora family reunion/mini vacation.
  • I'm almost finished with a free sampler chart. Will be sharing it here later next week. The title - "Warrior"
  • I celebrated my blogoversary-
Wishing all the Father's a very special day.

Can it be...

That I'm so very blessed with a Father in Heaven, who's Grace is Greater than my pain, an earthly Father who's spent his life for his girls, who's smile brightens the darkest day, a husband that was so clearly sent by God, to love me, honor me, be my best friend, love and care so deeply for our children.

So we should celebrate this day every day, as I try to do. I am blessed-

Why not read "The Power of the Praying Wife". I remember first reading it, praying it, and seeing changes that were undeniably God. You'll see it too...spend the next 15 days in prayer, spend the remainder of the year being Thankful-

Father in Heaven, I thank you, for Jesus' blood, my Daddy, Mark...

Neglect and the Pursuit of Happiness

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Looking into the ground, the beauty that once was, now filled with weeds, much like my soul. Thoughts of disgust fill my insides as I look into the gardens, neglected, over-run. I pray for God to send me words, speak to me, as I begin the process that will bring pain to back, arms and legs. To give me Grace for the day, the journey, that seems to have no end, no Joy-
On the pursuit of Happiness, the journey could be long if one expects to find it without the willing mind, heart, soul to truly search.
I've gotten lost, forgot what it is that I'm seeking. His Grace is here, His Faithfulness no end. I'm wondering how this happened. In dreading each day, wondering how I will proceed, find joy, I forget to look at the finer things. Life, these boys, this husband, home. Happiness truly is in the eye of the beholder. Don't forget to seek it...

God, if this is the place you need me, help me find happiness in it, remember your promise, accept your Grace for the day.
