Love Letters from the Father!

I have to share something really quick before I get into the heart of this post. I’m kinda sad. I was so excited when I heard that Todd Agnew was coming to Cincinnati, OH on March 17th…all geared up to go, but it looks like the concert isn’t happening now. This makes me very sad…I’m dying to see Mr. Agnew in concert again, oh well! Patience has never been mine. There is a show on April 21st in Germantown, TN, that’s right near Memphis, where my sister will be moving J

Now, onto the purpose of this post…well, as you have read it is entitled Love Letters from the Father, and this next week of posts is going to be about you and God! I have sent these letters to several people, some which are part of my blog family. I have written several letters from God’s perspective in the past and given them to people as encouragement. They encourage me. How I got the idea for the seven letters that you will see displayed over the next several days was actually Todd Agnew and the band…I wanted to send …

Just When You Thought I Was Back!

Oh how I miss each and everyone of you beautiful and talented people...I'm still very much fed up to here, but God is working. How I desire to root myself in each of your blogs and find out where you are at, but at this time I am working a very rough schedule. I was off Wednesday and I won't be off again until next Saturday. That's right folks a 9 day work day. I'm just drowning a little in a job that makes me sooo frustrated. Please pray for me and if you just want to chat or tell me how you have been please email me. I would love to hear from you. I promise to try and catch up on all you fine people soon...yes, my dear Carol your definition of "fed up to here" fits my life right now...Dawn, it's on...you and me Bon Jovi, what could be better :)

Thanks everyone who commented on my previous post...Becky I miss your insight, Kat you rule!

PS...my sister found an apartement in Memphis, we will have here for only two more weeks! I have to say I'm a little …

Up to Here!

You know how you say that your are "Fed up to here!" What exactly does that mean? What is here? and how are fed up to it!...I'm not sure, but I've been drifting in the fog of my life as of late. I haven't been in the word and I have been feeling that my faith is far more contingent upon me, when it really isn't contingent upon me at all. Well, I just laid this all out at the feet of God one day, just almost screaming in my journal writing...what's the point, what's the purpose, here I am in the same space I've found myself a million times before, and well I open my Devotional to the next entry and here is the verse that popped out at me...

"For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." - Philippians 1:6

Knock me over with a feather...

I had breakfast this morning with Kat and we just had an awesome time. God is working in her life...I mean the hand of Providence …

Nashville!!!

There is a hum in this city…and energy that is unlike any place that I have ever been before. I first fell in love with Nashville back in 1996…a Campus Life trip to see DC Talk in concert and spend a few days admiring what this glorious place had to offer. I was immediately hooked. I resigned myself that this was it that this was where I would eventually live. For some strange reason this place set a hunger and fire in me that, while cooled, has never fully died out. All of us have that place I think. My heart went through mourning, and I do mean literal mourning, when my sister said one day that she would be moving to Nashville. “No,” I thought…this is my city. However, almost three years later and the realization that this move for her was completely ordained by God and that now I have a free place to crash anytime I want to come into the city makes my heart a little more happy. I know that God has carved out a little space of independence that is just for me.

About four years later …

I'm Back!

Sorry guys I've been out of the loop for awhile. I have been in Nashville on vacation. I don't have much time tonight, but I promise to give you in detail my loverly vacation in Nashville and all that intails. I will also be visiting your lovely blogs in the future as well. I have a lot of things to discuss so hopefully I can get back into a regular swing of blogging. I love you all dearly and thank you to each person who commented on my last post.

More to come...stay tuned...

What the...Oh Yeah!...Abundant Life!

"To come alive spiritually we must meet God.To live abundantly we must know God."
(This quote was on one of Claire’s posts back in January.)


Imagine an open field as far as the eye can see a great sea of tall grass blown by the divine purpose of the invisible wind. Wildflowers, Lavender, Jasmine…filling the Earth with God breathed fragrance and bringing the green blanket to life with pops of color. Now, imagine a clear blue sky with a sun so big that the whole Earth is covered in its amber glow. The sun and the wind make it a perfect 75F. The only shadow that is cast by the sun is a silhouette of a girl with long flowing brown curls being tickled by the wind…I’m uncertain what she is wearing but let’s say a soft blue summer dress. She is smiling, taking it all in and she is content to live life abundantly.


This is a fictionalized telling of a vision my good friend Teresa had of me. Most times Teresa is tormented by what she sees, but in this instance she was blessed. Upon askin…

AHHHH!

My dear friends and blogging family I have spent the last hour on a post and have lost it, we all know how frustrating that is and I just don't have the strength to post it right now. I will be going to a meeting for work tomorrow so I'll try to post it the second time on Wednesday...so stay tuned for "What the, oh yeah...abundant life?" I'm tired, frustrated and burned out!
