Overstuffed!

Hello Everyone! I hope all you beautiful and amazing people had the most fantastic Thankful Day you could imagine. Mine was FANTASTIC! Yes it was...

I have visited and caught up with the most of you! It is good to see that most of you are doing well...some of you are being sifted, but standing in His presence, and some Jesus is carrying, but that you are ALL thankful! I wish I could wrap my arms around the entire lot of you! I just love you bunches and bunches...

Alright! Well, I've decided to not change the scheme of the blog or the blog name until after Christmas, maybe at my one year anniversary...that would be cool huh! I'm JUST TOO TOO busy!

Things are going well...I fell back into a bad habit and realized how selfish I can be, but God is kicking me in the rear side...and its working!!

Pilot Mom asked me to do a tag...there was a similar, although not exact one that I did not to long ago that I will leave with you now...I'm not trying to cheat Claire...I promise and am fo…

Happy Thanksgiving!...Kingdom Living!

You guys have got me to thinkin'...and alot! Kat got me processing the concept and feeling of loneliness and feeling the absense of God in our hearts, Gayla got me thinking about the Kingdom of God and how to get there...something I've actually reflected on quite a bit, and Well Woman got me thinking on the favor and blessings of God in real life today miracles with a wonderful story she wrote about a real life experience that I encourage all of you to go read!

So, first off...I haven't been in much of a Thankful mood...I've been dreading what I have to do before driving for 6 hours after I get off work on Wednesday to go home for Thanksgiving...I don't want to go home! I love my family and there is family that isn't in the best of health and I need to see them, but I just want to stay home. I have been in hibernation mode BIG TIME! From everything...I don't know...I feel like I've lost a great big perspective on my life, gained weight and just feel yuck…

Christmas Shopping...the Meaning...Life!

Hello Everyone!

I just revisited all your other blogs, you all have been busy and it was great fun catching up.

Anonymous...I replied to your comment on my previous post, just so you know! (Thanks for making me think)

God is working in all of your lives and working in me through you and many other things in my life...so much going on in my little brain that I can't really articulate it!

Let's talk about what I did yesterday...which is Christmas Shop...I got my Christmas shopping done in one day...and let me say that is a good and bad thing. I have no control with money, especially around Christmas...let's just say that I spent a months wages in a day...I bought things for myself as well...STUFF...things I don't need! Oh me!

I always say that I want Christmas to be about Christ, and visiting Pilot Mom's blog today and reading what she posted on inviting Jesus to Christmas...well just READ IT! I thought on how I rarely invite him, I focus far to much on what to get someon…

Believe It or Not!

I’m alive…

Yes I am!

I am sooooo sorry that it has taken me this long to actually sit down and post something. I just have to say that my life is so crazy. I did want all of you to know that you are still in my thoughts and prayers. I promise to pop in and say high later on this week at all of your blogs. I have got some things in the works for this here blog itself…including a name change. Hopefully I will have a chance during the week to work on some of these changes. Please just be patient with me, it is the holiday season and I work in retail remember. I’m doing a million and one things with church and friends and family, and there are simply not enough hours in one day.

I don’t really have any great pearls of wisdom to impart this evening or any life questions to draw up. I will say that the immense response, letters, emails, and the like that I received from my post on living in a broken dream is phenomenal. The things that were shared with me are personal and beautiful and I feel …

Feeling Yucky!

Hello Everyone! Feeling Sick! Haven't been to work this week...am alive! Just Pray! Will be back as soon as I can! Much Love!

Thursday Jive!

I'm going to write this in purple because purple is an excellent color. First, I need to share with all of you that I got in trouble today and I can no longer do any personal stuff on my computer. I was made to delete all of my blogs that were saved in my favorites and any other personal stuff. I knew it was coming and I totally got caught! My manager had been watching me for awhile now! She was dissappointed, but not upset! I'm the type of person that if I'm told not to do something I don't do it. However, there are many hours during the day that I need to kill time. I was a little embarressed, saddened, and upset. I just ask you to pray that God will open doors and allow me to stay on task at work and that I will find productive things to fill my time...whether that be projects or what have you. This also means that I will have much less time to write and check blogs, so you may be seeing less of me. It really had gotten out of control and I know this. In the long ru…

Overcoming Arrows with the Sword!

In the Sacred Romance we are asked what arrows have effected us most, what are those that have been implanted in our hearts at a very young age, and then we are asked to combat them with scripture. I did that this morning and just wanted to show you what I found:


INSECURE (stand up for yourself)

Jeremiah 1: 16-19 (Amplified)
16And I will utter My judgments against them for all the wickedness of those who have forsaken Me, burned incense to other gods, and worshiped the works of their own hands [idols].
17But you [Jeremiah], gird up your loins! Arise and tell them all that I command you. Do not be dismayed and break down at the sight of their faces, lest I confound you before them and permit you to be overcome.
18For I, behold, I have made you this day a fortified city and an iron pillar and bronze walls against the whole land--against the [successive] kings of Judah, against its princes, against its priests, and against the people of the land [giving you divine strength which no ho…

It's Like Looking in a Mirror!

1 Corinthians 13:12 has been my favorite passage of scripture for about 3 years now. I came across it absolutely unexpected during a very doubtful period of my life, and I was searching for answers and not getting them. It really changed my thought process concerning my faith. Now, I can rest assured that even if I never figure it all out and even if I NEVER get the answers that I'm looking for in life that everything that is hidden will be revealed...I was looking on Bible Gateway, love this site, going to become my new best friend :) and here are some different translations that I find interesting...

KJV
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

The Message
We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing …

Just Give Up!

(Didn't spellcheck this, be prepared :)

Just give it up all of it...up to God! My pastor says something pretty profound...God is either Lord of ALL or not Lord at all! I have been allowing God to be Lord of all for a long time now. Even as I'm typing on my computer I'm holding onto my dreams with a clenched fist! I'm scared...you know what, I'm scared that God's dreams won't be as good as mine! It is amazing the battle that we are in. We are either for the Devil or for God...it all depends on the stance we take. I know that many of you have been concerned with what I have been writing, but never fear I'm doing wonderfully...yeah, I 'm in the midst of the gunfire and mortar shell, but God has got lovely people in my life who have got my back and I'm fighting on His side...that is why satan wants to destroy me so much. There is a lot more that I want to say, and I still need to share with all of you about my lovely Halloween! Any-Hoo!

Just when I th…
