What's wrong is that I have not blogged in the month of March yet! Man o' man where does the time go? Not to much exciting going on in our home. We had one of our computers crash (not good when you do on line home schooling) my car broke down ($800 later) and then our garage door broke (that one were gonna ignore for the moment ha!) I just kept gritting my teeth and whispering to myself,"It's just material stuff. God will provide. Find joy in ALL things." At the same time, sickness took over our house. Yup' it finally caught up to us. Ugh! But then the clouds parted, the sun came out (literally) and we got our taxes back......enough that it paid off our upcoming trip in full. Thank you Jesus! I love when God does things like that. Gifts we don't deserve or expect.
Morgan is old enough now to serve in children's ministry at church. It has blessed me to watch her love on the 2 & 3 year olds and do it with such kindness and joy. She's growing up fast and doing a pretty good job of it. ;)
Dan is reading a book called Surfing For God. We heard a guy on Air1 mention how good it was so we looked into it. We had no idea what it was about. Turns out its this amazing book about being addicted to pornography. Ya' I know, nobody wants to talk about the ugly stuff. But really, if you know anyone struggling with any kind of addiction, buy this book for them. It really gets to the heart of the issue. The thing is, we all sin. This is just another pitfall that satan uses to destroy families. We are all searching for something and some of us find the "right" answer. Gods saving grace. Look up e book, it's worth the time.
In the meantime we are enjoying the sunshine and playing outside as much as possible. All the while trying to cram in extra school work before our trip so I can lay by the pool guilt free. Ha! Just life stuff. Getting ready for Easter which is my very favorite holiday by the way. I had lots of pictures but my computers being dumb so I'm updating you on my iPad.
If you think about it could you pray for me? Really struggling with something I did. The problem is, it was the right thing. It was done prayerfully, with love, kindness and with the other persons best intention at heart. I was honest. GASP! I reached out. NO! I shared my own story. But now this person is not responding to me. In any way. I have peace about being honest when I was talked too.....but loosing a friend or so it seems kinda sucks. Thanks for praying. Pray for their heart. Pray for peace for me.
My quiet time has been so good lately. Just working through the word every morning and praying for needs around me. Just this morning I was being challenged to call out,"God use me." Now believe you me, you never say that unless you mean it. Because God is just waiting to pour into your life to bless and minister to others. I was reminded of Jeramiah 33:3 a verse that I have clung to for many years. Trusting, knowing that if I call on him he IS going to answer me. That freagin' blows my mind even after being a believer for almost 25 years. So that's where I am today. Asking God to use me in marriages that are hurting, in the lives of wives who feel distressed. And then the hard part; trusting God did NOT make a mistake when he brought them into my lives. Trusting that he wants me to speak truth and love into their hearts just like a sister in Christ did for me 7 years ago when I was hurting.
Be blessed today.
