Sorry again

Hi everyone. Sorry it has been so long since my last post. This house-hunting is a crazy task :-D Thank you all for your prayers. We need them more than ever as we seek what He has for us and that we trust Him in everything.
Let me update you on everything else:
Karyss is enjoying third grade and doing GREAT! She is very smart and doing very well in all her schoolwork except when she gets lazy.. HA! She is also doing very well with her piano lessons and has progressed into the next level already.
Riley is growing taller now but still is a skinny guy. He is still struggling with eczema and we are taking him for tests next month.
Dan is busily studying and preparing for a very special day next weekend, he is being ordained! I am very excited for him and for this time in his life. He has waited a long time. I am proud of him
As for me, I am much the same except that I am trying to get on track with exercise and diet. This is the year I finally get in shape :-D
And how are you ?? Thank all of you who are still taking time in your lives to read about mine! I am really going to try to be more consistent and I hope we can learn and grow together .

here is my request for the day:
Please send me a verse or quote that has helped you or been special to you in times when you were worried or stessed.
Make it a great day!

I've got a Mansion

Well, some of you out there know we are in the process of trying to find and purchase our very first home. It is an exciting and daunting task.. I was thinking about it today while I was having my devotions and I was reminded of that song "I've got a mansion, just over the hilltop...."
Isn't that a nice thought?? In Heaven I won't have to go house hunting! God already has my Mansion prepared for me.
How blessed are we????

Please, if you read this, please pray for us that God will show us just the right house and we will follow his leading .

Please send me a little note to let me know if you are praying. We appreciate it so much!

God is good

Today I am sitting here listening to good music and being so thankful that we have music that can encourage and bless us. I am thankful for people God brought into my life to instruct me and show me what good music is. I am always blessed and encouraged by music. so that is my thankfulness today. I am blessed with good music. Thank you to all who continue to strive to make it available.

Saturday's Blessing

I am reading a new book called "Be my Refuge Lord" by Bob and Emilie Barnes.. It has been such an encouragement to me.
Today's reading was about Let go and Let God
It reminded me of a poem I read once called that same thing

Let Go and Let God

As children bring their broken toys,
with tears for us to mend;
I brought my broken dreams to God
because He is my friend

But then, instead of leaving Him
in peace to work alone;
I hung around and tried to help
with ways that were my own.

At last I snatched them back again
and cried
"How can you be so slow??"
"My child", He said, "what could I do?
you never did let go!"

Author unknown.

This is a small verse but it spoke so much to me today
Matthew 8:26 " Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith"

Today my blessing in God's teaching in my life

A new year

Wow, it has been a LONG time since I have written in here.
I am trying to turn over a new leaf (just for you Kim).
God is working a lot in my life lately. I am striving to draw closer to Him in 2008. I have spent a lot of time lately reflecting on just what God has done for me and how He has worked and changed me so much. I am blessed in so many ways and there are so many things He has given me that don't make sense... I am truly unworthy and so thankful so this year I am going to try to use this blog to count my blessings :-D
Here is one for today:
I am blessed with parents that love me even when they don't always agree with what I do. They have always supported me through the good times and the bad times. As we are all getting older, I am so thankful to have them in my life. So that is my blessing today :-D
