***Good morning sisters
Wednesday. Four kiddies today and four tomorrow . Thank you Lord for this blessing.

James 1:2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.


I can't say it's a favourite verse of mine but I can say I've always found it to be true. What brings us closest to God the fastest? A good old fashioned trial.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday. Lets look for those hidden blessings!***************

Victory = series of right choices....

God bless you and yours!

Good morning,

Excellent verse for today Kris. I told my DH the entire details last night and he ended up calling up a friend from Church and talking about it. I am really happy he did. Sounds like he said all the things that I would have said but it was nice to have someone else do it. In situations like this what the flesh wants to do is the opposite of what your supposed to do and I sometimes I think he gets tired of hearing that from me. He is not going to talk to his parents right away letting the emotions die down first and allowing time for him to pray about it. Much better response than drilling his niece in the head:nono1:

Anyways, I slept very well last night and the aweful feeling in my stomach is gone today. Working on getting back on track today.

Thanks for prayers ladies and I hope everyone has a blessed day:wave1:

It is actually one of my favorite verses....its one I pray often... I have learned over the years that every big trial, every hard thing thrown at me, when I look back I can see how He has worked in my life, HOw he has transformed me and grown me into a better wife, a better mom, a better person.

Life is about glorifying God in all that we do.,.....often we (ME) forget this and think is about making me happy, or comfortable.....I think this is why God brings the trials.....it forces us to focus back on HIM, to rely on Him as he as planned for us.

Its hard, no one WANTS trials, but to know it brings me closer to my Saviour, that it brings me to a better person on this earth while I am here, well I can truley say that when I look back I can see His hand in every trial and see the why so often.......
So in the middle we just have to trust that there is a reason...

There is a reason I am dealing with health issues, weight issues.... I will get through it with His help....

Steph, I'm glad you have some resolution :) Good idea to wait til the emotions calm down...you know what they say about the anger of man.

Erika...good point. I often forget that life is not about our comfort but about glorifying Him...we are very good about making everything about us!

I just found out there is a christian lady who lives two mins from my house! Thank You Lord...I just 'lost' my best christian friend of years...she is sort of fallen back into the world and she's moving 2 hours away...I didn't close the door on the friendship, but she did. So I'm hopeful!

Thank You Lord! Anyway, I ran into this lady in town and we chatted a little :) I didn,t realize how lonely I was for a christian lady friend (not only virtual ones....I am happy to have y ou ladies though) There are certain things I can say here that I can't say elsewhere.

thank You Lord for my many blessings!******************
