Today I am Thankful for...

Today I have so many things to be thankful for! I am thankful for a great husband who loves me, for my kids who have grown up to be amazing adults and married wonderful people to add to our family! I am thankful for a diverse group of people that I call my friends and church family. I am thankful for my warm house and for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies! They are soft and chewy and full of flavor. I am also very thankful that I live in a country of wealth where I can get a bottle of ib profen! It is the little things that count! (smile)

Have a wonderful blessed evening.

The Word of God Says...

that wisdom is more valuable than silver or gold. The Word of God says, that a beautiful woman without discretion is like a pig with a gold ring in its' snout. The Word of God says, it better to give than receive. The Word of God says that one day in His presence is better than a thousand elsewhere. The Word of God says to run from evil. The Word of God says that wisdom is more precious than rubies and nothing you desire can compare to her! The Word of God says that I have a purpose and there is a great plan for me because I serve Jesus! I fear the Lord! I love the Lord...

Just saying...

Happy Valentines Day!

I just wanted to tell everyone Happy Valentines Day! It is my anniversary and I just love the holiday too! To me it is an opportunity to tell people that they are loved and valued. It doesn't have to be a spouse or someone of romantic interest. It can be a teacher, the produce person,the checker or your son or daughter!

So when you are out and about take time to wish someone a Happy Valentine's Day. Speak a kind word into their day and life. You might become the bright spot in their day.

23 A man has joy by the answer of his mouth,
And a word spoken in due season, how good it is! Proverbs 15:23 NKJV

Happy Valentine's Day!

First of all sorry that it has been so long since I have posted! I was really sick for about two weeks!

Last night I went to the local grocery store to pick up a few items for dinner. When I first went in I saw a young gal that I used to work with a few years ago and she was visiting with a gentlemen so I smiled and gave her a side hug and kept shopping. She told me that she would see me before I would leave. I picked up a few items and she sure enough found me in the check out line and walked with me out to the car. I love this girl. She is a sweetie and I used to pray for her when we worked together. Jesus was so good to give me opportunities to share and pray with her about various subjects. Whenever she needed to sell a car we would pray and God would be faithful to provide the customers to purchase a vehicle!

Well, last night she told me how much she missed having me pray for her and praying with me. She told me that she still tells people about how much she loved working with me and loved our prayer times. While I was talking to her another young lady, whom I work with now, came up and I introduced them to each other. I pray with her too :) I enjoyed that few minutes of time so very much!

God really used those two "coincidental" meetings to minister to me! I realized that maybe, just maybe I have made a difference in one person's life! Oh what a blessing! But wait, not just one life, but I have had the privilege to speak into two lives! I cried on the short car ride home to think what an honor I have had to have the opportunity to pray for two young ladies. Two divine appointments to be Jesus with skin on, and for that I am honored.

Don't miss those opportunities. They are so important. Look for them. I have prayed for many people but you never know who it really touches. But I know this, if I throw enough seed far and wide some will take root. I have always said that I would have moved to Burley even if only one person would receive Christ. I am abundantly blessed. The enemy would like us to think that we make no difference and that we live our lives for Christ in vane but we know different! So be faithful, all of the time. You never know when something so simple, as praying for someone in a moment will truly touch their life.

Throwing Seed Everywhere!
