change

The leaves are changing, and they are falling, as is the temperatures.  When I was younger I despised change!  I mean despised it.  I say younger, but actually until I was 19, when our Granny passed.  There was a song that spoke to me so much.  I never told anyone about it, but loved it....because it was Granny and I.  I realized that I never said Goodbye to anyone until the day before she died, the day I last saw my Granny in her earthly body.  I can't WAIT to see her in her heavenly one!  Amen!  As I stated before, I never told anyone about it, but I think everyone felt the same...we ALL loved our Granny so much.  So much so that the song was played at her funeral...to my surprise.  I fell apart....it was something I will never forget.  No matter what happens, I am proud of our family....Granny taught us well....we love freely and no one is a stranger....they are family.  God spoke to us all when Granny passed, and he still does, we just have to listen.

God Blesses!

So we talked about prayer the other day and how miracles can happen through prayer and the grace of God.  Aunt Shirley sent me an email that was fwd to her and it had a lot of cute phrases in it that were both amusing and truthful.  One of them that I loved was: "When praying, don't just give God instructions.....just report for duty."  Faith can do so many things when it is placed in the hands of God.  Why can't we remember that when worry overwhelms us?  Remember and pray.
God Blesses!
James 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

today

Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.  We all know someone who has lost a child.  I cannot imagine.  Please pray for all of those who have been impacted today.  Tonight from 7-8pm they ask that we light a candle in remembrance of those children at the feet of God.  Aunt Patsy is doing great!  Please continue to pray for Karen, and all of those affected by cancer.  May we all ALWAYS continue the fight.
God Blesses!

storms and chills

So yesterday, I emailed my cousins first asking them to pray for Karen and her family.  The Cuz emailed me and said that she was prayin for Karen.  In the next email she said that she was so glad I emailed cause she had a lot on her.  Her words were that I was her rock in a storm and she felt like the storm was so big right now and I had better be ready to get wet.  I asked her if she had read my blog, and found out she had not.  WOW.  We've said that God gave us a special connection...but isn't that so wild!  He shows us in our lives that he has a plan that he knows what he is doing, and we have to have FAITH.  So yesterday I got chills.  Today I pray also....for Karen...for Aunt Patsy (LOVE U) who is undergoing a procedure on her heart this mornin, and for you.  Please pray with me!  May our eyes recognize and be thankful for God's Amazing Grace!!!

God Blesses!

help by prayin

As many of you know a friend here at work was diagnosed with Cancer in April, after a trip to the ER for a migraine.It is very wide-spread and aggressive, but they have been fighting it. I have asked you to put Karen on your prayer list, and have tried to give you updates. I just wanted to let you know that they are trying to accept that she is not doing well, and that their fight is wearing down. We know that God performs miracles, we know that everything happens for a reason, and that MANY good loved ones and friends have went on to the promised land.  I have no doubt, but have to admit that I am hurting. Previously, Karen told me on the phone that when she was first diagnosed she thought,  I can beat this like you did, that I want to hear them tell me I am cured, like they did you. I keep thinking of that, and reminding myself that it is the devil talking.  I have no say if I did...there would be no luminaria's at Relay, because everyone would be survivors.  God does miracles.  I K…

Strength

I read this passage and was reminded that even when we are tired, when we feel like we've reached the end of our rope we can reach deep within ourselves and know that we have the power to succeed, the power to believe.  We bear nothing alone, yet with the heavenly Father cheering us on. God Blesses!
Isaiah 40:29-31 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;  but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.        They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,  they will walk and not be faint.

hope

This month is Breast cancer awareness month.  We try and create more awareness for cancer wearing pink (hey even the NFL did it).  Typically when you see it there is one word that accompanies the ribbon....HOPE.  Hope is a little word that can have amazing repercussions.  Hope by definition is to wish for something and spiritual generosity.  Wow....to me hope is not something of the body but of the spirit and ultimately the soul.  We hope for many things in life.  Cures, happiness, spirit, and right doing.  Hope to me is something that cannot be defined...something infinite....something that God holds in his hands....just as he holds us all.  We are not alone and our hopes are not alone.  God is great....

Hebrews 11:1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.


God Blesses!

Grasp

So I was carrying a load of stuff into work, and someone put in the security code for me and opened the door.  Later I was carrying some stuff from one side to the other and yet again as I waited for someone to punch in the code and open the door for me I said, "Thanks.  It's just a little hard to grasp".  Have we thought of life like that?  Some things that we worry over, we spend many sleepless moments over, that we can't keep off our mind and find peace....it's because we can't get a grasp on it...we can't understand it fully, nor accept it.  To grasp something we sometimes need help, sometimes we need to just trust, to have faith, and to have hope.  The love of God is the only thing we need to grasp...to hold onto.  God's love for us is mighty and great.  His love is more than we can ever imagine.  His love is unconditional.  Give up your problems, your burdens, your worries to God.  Have a great weekend yall!
