Somebody's Praying Me Through

Wow- I am so glad to know that I have people that step up to the plate and live as Christ. We all need friends, people of integirty, people we truth with every ounce of who we are. I've learned lately that those special people God gives to us for only a short time, and then has to bless others with them because they are such rare jewls. I'm very thankful for the time that God has given me with them and there family. I know that as I pray for them, they are also praying for me as they already have through so many times, when I felt it couldn't get any worse. The words to this song, I believe fit it perfectly.

Somebody's Praying Me Through by Allen Asbury
Pressing over me like a big blue sky I know someone has me on their heart tonight That’s why I know it’s gonna be alright ‘Cause somebody’s praying me through Somebody’s praying me through It may be my Mother, it might be my Dad Or an old friend I’ve forgot I had But whoever it is I’m so glad that Somebody’s praying me through Somebody’s praying me through Through the tears, through the rain Through the sorrow, through the pain It keeps bringing me through Over and over again So when you’re drowning in a sea of hurt And it feels like life couldn’t get any worse There’s a blessing waiting to push back the curse ‘Cause somebody’s praying you through Somebody’s praying you through Someone got down on their knees and prayed for me Somebody’s, somebody’s praying you through

Let's make faces!

Small things in life, somtimes are the best things in life. Can I tell you how much this makes me smile! Have I told you lately, how much I love Meagan. OH MY GOODNESS! I love that child, I can't wait till God blesses me with children. I hope there half as wonderful as she is. Goodness, I adore her. What special memories---Meagan and Oogie making cookies! If you can look closely--I think it's a little more spinkles than cookie, maybe thats why were making faces!

Raining Thoughts

Took a little more time to post than I thought.

Started a week ago:
I love the sound of rain and enjoy watching it if I'm home and not on call which isn't the case at the moment. Anyway, while I'm sitting here listening to in rain, as fast as it is coming down, thoughts are flying through my head. Why do I do the things I do? How do I rank things in my life? What fruit is coming my life? What legacy am I living at this moment? If I could change anything in the world about myself what would it be? If I could have a million dollars today? What would I do with it? Okay- this isn't hot seat time (one of the best games ever) I just like to get personal and know. I bond and connect, build trust, and then run with it. However, I'm realizing that I've change-- sadly enough I don't think it's for the better and I don't like it. I am putting a stop to it now.

1. Why do I do the things I do? Fear of what people will think. I will not say no.

2. How do I rank things in m life? (Honest- wow I hate putting this in words) Work, Church work/activities, God, Family/Friends, Self.

3. What fruit is coming from my life? Not the fruits of the Spirit

4. What legacy am living? I can't help but think of Nichole Nordeman's song. "I want to leave a legacy How will they remember me? Did I choose to love? Did I point to You enough To make a mark on things? I want to leave an offering A child of mercy and grace whoblessed your name unapologetically And leave that kind of legacy" That's what I want t leave but I'm afriad right now, that isn't all people see. :(

5. If I could change anything in the world about myself what would it be? Trust God in EVERYTHING! I'm tired of giving Him something and then taking it back ten hundred times. I want to trust and have enjoy faith in Him that nothing else matters.

6. If I could have a million dollars today, What would I do with it? Hummm,,,,well pay off credit card, buy a new down comforter and pillows, adopt a child from Africa and provide for him/her and there family. I would also like to help my church thats not in the best situation. I would take a weekend off and stay at the Grand Hotel and have a massage every other hour :) Ha Ha!
