I randomly text "you are loved and prayed for" to friends. Just a simple remember that I hope brightens her day. One day my friend responded "oh boy, I could use the prayers and cookies"
The Cross decorated for Christmas! Each element has a purpose. As we begin this Advent season keep the cross in mind. Jesus came with the cross set before Him. It wasn't just happened along the way, It was why He came, for me and for you.
As we head into Thanksgiving week I'm thinking of the many things that I am thankful for. My husband & children. My family back home. My Church family and a pastor who preaches God's word well. Friends
She has been asking for her own Bible. I had it in my mind that I would get her one when she started reading. I had hoped she would be by now.
I see lessons everywhere. Here is no different. When I carry a heavy load (physically or emotionally) I end up hurting myself.
A picture from Grace's Baby Dedication popped up on my Facebook memories - And just like that she is 10yrs old! Her life, a miracle in itself, is dedicated to God. Her story a powerful one of God's grace everyday. It hasn't been easy but God's grace has been there and will continue to be there every step of the way.
I love Christmas, Since I've been involved with Operation Christmas Child my favorite time of year is marked by the day the Shoebox table goes up!
Jeremiah 29:11 is a verse often quoted. I'm a believer I knowing what you are reading. The place in witch this is written is when the phophet Jeremiah is writings to the exiles of Isreal
Bed time seems to be the hardest part of our day. Jonathan has delt with "bad dreams" for quite a while. Little did I know that this is a sign of anxiety. He is doing better now that he is getting help
Before school started I took the kids to have a little fun at Crayola Experience. We were in line to do one of the activities, the girl helping the kids asked Jonathan witch mold he wanted to make "Emoji or a ring?"
Picked grapes off the vine to wash because Grace wanted a snack. Sometimes I see lessons all around me. This was one of those moments. Jesus said; I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
I couldn't been more excited to have the opportunity to share the gospel with the kids. It wasn't about looking for responses that night. I was excited because I got to share with them God's Truth. Wither with children or adults sharing God's truth, most of all the gospel, should excite us!
I saw this necklace and knew it was somethings I wanted to be reminded of. I can do all things through His strength, not mine. If it is strength you see when you look at me it is not mine. Mine was gone long ago. The only reason I am able to do all that I do is through God's grace that gives me strength each day.
VBS is always fun! We go every year often to a couple different ones. This is a year I will never forget. We were visiting friends and enjoying VBS at their church. Thursday night my friend shared the gospel with my son's class. He whispered to me "I believe".
My Bear He hold many memories and more secrets than I'm willing to admit. He was a gift from my beloved Papa David (grandpa) on the last normal Christmas we had together, I was 13 (the age my oldest daughter is now). I told my mom that I wanted a "Big Bear" for Christmas and she just rolled her eyes at me. As a mom I now get this and would do the same to my kids. But, this girl knew where to go and I told Papa I wanted a big bear.
