Almost done packing

moving

I have a problem with my blogging. I’m not so good at keeping up with it.  Lately, I have found myself very busy.  Yeah, we are busy packing and getting ready to move, but the reality is that my emotions have taken over lately.  I have had a difficult time leaving our church, friends and work.  I have gotten comfortable with where God has had us.  I have had a hard time getting used to the reality that God is moving us on.  This has been hard. 

What is easy about this?  God has brought Jim and I to a point where we are tired of being “COMFORTABLE”.  God doesn’t want us to be comfortable and I think this is why we became a little restless.  We have been following His lead and know with out a shadow of a doubt that He is so clear and wants us to get uncomfortable and to have a constant urgency for Him and the lost.  I am excited to be standing next to my husband as he serves in a ministry he has been so gifted to lead and blessed to lead.  At the same time I will miss so many of the folks we have served with in ministry for the past three years.  I love you all.

Thanksgiving…

25 11 2008

jim-n-me

So I have been thinking about what I am thankful for.  The list is miles long and I could ramble on and on and on and on.  I am most certainly greatful for Jesus and of course he is at the top of the list and I am daily greatful but I feel the need to express my thanksgiving and praises to God outwardly to the world for my husband. 

I have never been a real good feeling expresser (is that a word?) but I want the world to know how thankful I am for who God made for me.  What is so amazing is that he knew who He was making for me far before my first breath.  This is so astonishing to me.  In Psalm 139:13 it says, “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mothers’ womb.”  While God was making Jim, he made him in such a way that he would be united to me as one.  WOW, how do I rate to be given such a gift?

You see, Jim is an amazing man!  He is the most compassionate, loving and caring husband.  I watch him look at me with passion in his eyes and it completely warms my soul.  This is all God.  The love of God poured out to me through my husband will amaze me for the rest of my life.  To watch him as a father is beyond my comprehension.  He is absolutely what our children need.  The love and affection shown to these kids is nothing I have ever experienced as a child and because of who he is, I am a better mommy.  WOW!  God, you are amazing!  I am thankful and give you the praise for this wonderful gift, my husband Jim!





Say Cheese!

Our New President

Why did I choose a black and white photo?  Its called unity! Its, not all black and its not all white, its both and that is how it should be.  God loves us all and I believe God sees it the same way.  It’s not all about me or you! 

It has been a long campaign and we have made it to the end of what I pray will be a great new beginning. I want to bring up one issue I have experienced during this time. Through the campaign I have received emails saying what a horrible person Obama is and frankly, some of the emails were rather upsetting.  I found them to be so unglorifying to God that I couldn’t even believe they have come from my fellow christian brothers and sisters. I am praying for those who have such hatred in their hearts.  I am praying they will be comforted in their fear and that they will come to realize that it will be okay.  I pray for people to realize that being afraid of change is normal but change is what this country needs!  McCain would have never changed Roe vs Wade, this is my opinion-and because of this one reality, I could not be a one issue voter. 

If I must say one thing, God’s Word never changes, but God is all about change!  Its about time.





I love Halloween!

31 10 2008

Halloween is so fun!  I know there are some people who don’t celebrate it or pass out candy.  I love the costumes, the little kids saying trick or treat.  We had a little girl come to our door and she was so cute! I know her parents are immigrants from Mexico and she said, “Trick or treat, smell my feet…..”  She had the cutest little accent trying to say it.  I loved it.  How can Halloween be so evil when my heart was so filled with joy for this little girl doing something that is just american tradition.  God bless this little girl.

What is even more cool is the fact that I had a chance to pass out Kidstuf invitations to all the kids.  How cool is this.  I heard one boy say to his friend as they were walking away,  “Man, I want to go to this, maybe we can go together and our parents can take us.”  Now if using Halloween as a means of spreading the word of God, I’m in.  Go God-can’t wait till next year!





Wacky family night!

26 10 2008

So last night we had wacky hair family night.  We wacked out our hair, watched Nim’s Island and ate popcorn.  It was a cute movie.  We had a blast.  The kids thought it was so funny that we did our hair too.  Doesn’t Jim look great? (That isn’t him, his hair was blue but you couldn’t tell in the pic) Got this great idea from a post on Kem Meyer’s blog. It  was a blast and the kids thought it was the coolest thing! Next will be miss-match night!
