*Good Friday morn sisters

Paul's Prayer for the Ephesians
…20Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, 21to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
Ephesians 3:21

Another fav verse sisters. Thanks for agreeing with me in prayer for Rosalie. I want this for her, but also for me...for her salvation ( recognizing Gods miracle) but also for my daily well being. My job has gotten so much better since meeting Rosalie. I used to be all alone with my 6 I have the pleasure of spending an hour or two with her and her 6 kids every morning.

Steph: I'm amazed at how well you do with all your yard work. Any word from Raymond? What about putting the house on the market again for others? I'm sorry to hear about your youngest... That is my nightmare... My dd is still at the texting stage. Thankfully the boy doesn't live in our town. They're not officially going out yet...Lord bless our children...

Annette: is the extended family conflict making you feel lost? If you've tried to fix things and there is still a lot of new pain maybe you need to step back a little? We're to live at peace with all men in as much as its possible... I've had a difficult relationship with my sis for awhile...right now we seem to be in a good place but in the past I've said what I had to say, tried to listen to what she had to say and then sometimes stepped back from the situation a little...

Erika: coffee date! They're the best kind! It's amazing how much a good, solid Christian book can help.I've been influenced by many books. It can be a way out of a difficult situation. I loved made to crave and some others. I usually have one or two going at a time.

Lord thank you for this day...not yesterday, or tomorrow , but this very day and everything it will and perhaps sadness. Thank you for everything you have chosen to use today to change me more into your image...I want to keep my eyes focused on you today and the moment and today's provision and blessings instead of always looking for and wanting more. I want to thank you and be satisfied with what you Have chosen for me.
Lord please bless my sisters where they are with their individual lives, families, problems and challenges. Thank you for the blessings you will bestow on them and me today.

Victory = series of right choices....

Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!

God bless you and yours!

Thank you for any and all prayers....felt at peace once my daughter started the testing. We will get the results next Thursday late in the afternoon.

Kris--my hubbies words that we are finding our way, I know I am just very confused. I honestly don't know whether or not to go to the reunion. I am okay with just my sister going, I just care about everyone too, so wish it would be a good visit, but the last two visits left me stressed...I am not convinced that it will provide healing, but add salt to the wound instead. I will keep praying, only God can heal this family. For whatever reason my stepmom is having a bad attitude towards my dad....he isn't sharing why, just that he and we are on her hit list....It's irrational, and she jumps to conclusions and attacks and shuts people out of her life, picking favorites...control is her goal, but it isn't based on facts, so it hurts people like my family. My confusion is crippling me...not good.

Prov. 22:4-5 A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. Humility and the fear of the LORD bring wealth and honor and life. In the path of the wicked lie thorns and snares, but he who guards his soul stays far from them.

Steph--prayers......are you doing yard work where the renter lives? Or do you have a few homes?

Erika--rain? Our climates must be opposite:). Our rainy season will come at the end of October and it will leave around June:).

Prayers for blessings on each of you:love:,

Sometimes the Message bible really has a way of making you really understand a verse or look at it differently.
I know I have read that verse Steph, but the way I just read it in your quote it hit me differently

A verse I need to hear. (stuff with my brother, me needing to "spread more honey than not"-as Annette said!)
We need to have each others backs, look for the good, not the bad. Do things in a way that glorify God, not "spread graffiti as it says.

Amen and Amen- glad to have read that and had God speak to me through it yet again on the same point.

Lovely Friday to Everyone:rock1:

Thanks Kris, The tree falling on the garage and then having this monsterous tree taken down was not in plans. Going with the flow on that one. I remember when it first happened I cried and cried. Seriously looked like a Tornado plowed through. I talked to DH and I think we are not going to worry about selling the house for now. The cheapest apartment to rent in Indy runs about 650 per month. It looks like I will be staying for longer than the expected 3 years it will be 2 years in October. The plan is to get the house fixed up ready to sell then if I need to sell it we are ready. Since we are not in a big rush to sell I will do a little bit at a time. If I decide to take on more projects and I don't have time to do the yard work in the future we will just pay to have it done. I have been checking and the house is worth about double of what we will have in it and the value just keeps going up. The rental house on the other hand is a money pit.

No hide nor hair of Raymond....I am kind of glad. I almost have all the work done that he was supposed to do. So if he comes back can just honestly say that I don't have any work for him to do. I do feel bad though because I am sure he is going through troubles or he would be coming by.

If the renter is no longer with her boyfriend, I will have no more anxiety about picking up the rent. I should be able to get it today. I will just take in consideration from now on that she will probably be late. Much rather deal with that than the "clown". I pray that she finds someone that will be good for her and her children.

Erika, I hope you had a good coffee date:)
Annette, when will you know about your DD testing?
Kris, Still praying for your friend.

Excited about this weekend. DH is off work and we have a lot of work to get done but next weekend is our camping trip at Holiday World we will be going to the Rock the World concert that evening. Kutless is one of the groups and I really like them and I like Switchfoot too. All through the day on Saturday they are going to have local Christian bands play. The next day is my husband's company picnic. God willing it all works out I am very excited:thumbu2:

I have been praying and trying to ask for everything I can think of and asking the holy spirit to pray for me and trying to remember to give thanks for all my blessings.

James 4:7-12
The Message (MSG)
7-10 So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.

11-12 Don’t bad-mouth each other, friends. It’s God’s Word, his Message, his Royal Rule, that takes a beating in that kind of talk. You’re supposed to be honoring the Message, not writing graffiti all over it. God is in charge of deciding human destiny. Who do you think you are to meddle in the destiny of others?

Have a wonderful weekend:love:
