*Good morning sisters!

Took samma on her first driving lesson last night. :):thumbu2:

we're in the home stretch now..Oli has his math exam today…the school says if he passes french he'll pass the year….the thing with French is that there are SO MANY VERBS! hard subject. English is our mother tongue…It's probably the only course he will ace. (my kids go to french school)

Rest in peace…so true…and funny too! You made me smile!:love:

Your prayer about grace led me to this:

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9

It's one of my fav verses:love: and I know I've used it before here…but that is what popped into my mind.

Lord, it's true…Your grace is Sufficient. I don't need my son to pass, I don't need to lose weight, we don't need all this Lord…but Father we do ask…that you grant peace, family harmony, good grades….good results…oh Father…we're always asking…Thank You Lord for your Grace. Thank You that you keep telling us to ask. Thank You that you don't tire of us children…Lord it IS TRUE…our joy has to be in you and not in our circumstances!

WE want to thank You Lord for every blessing you give. We want to thank you for giving Erika peace with this lawyer…thank You again father for letting Sammie pass. Thank you Father for the path you have for Oli.

Thank you for the path you have for all of us. Thank You Lord for the opportunities you've given to Steph to volunteer…thank you for the 'difficult' people you allow in her life! Thank you for any way you choose to bring us closer to you!

Don't let us stray Father…our paths are so crooked and we really do want to stay close to you!

Amen sisters…have a great DAY!:love::kiss:

Good Morning,

Very good Kris, I tend to feel broken down by my weaknesses. Good reminder for today.

Great news about your daughter. How did the cousin do? Praying for Oli.

Wrote down Romans 6 while from the sermon on Sunday. Was listening to Joyce last night and she mentions Romans 6. I get out my flier of Church so I will know where to go for the Feed My Sheep volunteering and I see where I wrote Romans 6.

Romans 6
The Message (MSG)
When Death Becomes Life

6 1-3 So what do we do? Keep on sinning so God can keep on forgiving? I should hope not! If we’ve left the country where sin is sovereign, how can we still live in our old house there? Or didn’t you realize we packed up and left there for good? That is what happened in baptism. When we went under the water, we left the old country of sin behind; when we came up out of the water, we entered into the new country of grace—a new life in a new land!

Speaking of asking for things we really don't need. My hair is falling out like crazy. It has been since at least December. I will be having a blood work up soon and I also have an appointment to have a free scalp analysis done. It is really, really thin like gross then esp. in the back crown part. When I think about it I want to cry...I guess if I have to I will start to where a wig....ULG I guess I can have worse things happen but REALLY?? I swear I go home and shave it all off it is such bad shape right now. Anyways my appointment at Transitions is on Tuesday. I am praying it goes well. I think about what it would be like to have nice and hair and then I am like don't be silly.....I guess I will live with whatever the outcome...guess I really don't need to have hair on my head.

Erika, I am happy for you that you found a good lawyer. I have been praying for you.

I should be going to the renters house tonight to get the rent. Praying that goes well. Met one of the neighbors last night and he is remodeling the house next door. He was very nice and have several contacts for "good trust worthy contractors". I will be getting numbers from him.

Raymond come over last night he was feeling sick to his stomach and really was upset about something. I didn't ask many questions. I figured it would end up costing me money that I don't have right now. He was complaining that his brother borrowed 45.00 and wasn't paying him back. He is supposed to come to the house and do some weed eating, mowing and general clean up while I am gone. Hoping to start using the saw next week and getting the tree cut up into firewood.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend:wave1:

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9

Its one of my Favorites too!!! We, (I) stumble so easily, so often weak. So often trying to trust in ME---and what happens---it leads to WORRY, and FRUSTRATION and FEARS....

But my Lord says His Grace is Sufficient FOR ME, when I am down his power is made perfect!
I can REST in him.

Wow, its so easy to not fully trust. GOd may you please continue to remind me that its YOU in charge, not me, and so I can REST, I can not worry, I can leave all of my frustrations at your feet.

Lord thank you for these ladies that I can go to each day and pray for and with through you.

Be with Steph as she goes to collect rent, fill her with your grace and give her PEACE and keep her from Frustrations. Give her the right words for this. Remind her that she is made in your image and you know every hair on her precious head. I don't know why she had to go through loosing hair. I do know you have a reason for everything... may you show her the way through this. We are so affected in society by Vanity- we want to look a certain way, weight a certain thing, keep up with everyone else.... I know that I am often consumed with this--May she rest in you and may you give her the strength to not let it be a big deal, May you give her a peace on dealing with this challenge you have sent her way.
Be with Oli, we ask that you let him pass, that you FOCUS him. We know that you want us to ASK, you want us to lay all our thoughts, concerns, worried at your feet,
So here I am asking. I fully trust that You are Fully in charge, and my PEACE and REST is in you, no matter the circumstances

I think I basically am saying the same thing over and over these last couple of days, but its what is on my heart.

Everyone have a great weekend!
We will be going to my in-laws. Positive is its on the beach, and I am a big water girl, negative is that there is often lots of stress and drama there.
Please pray for me to show GOd's grace through me in how I deal with it all.
Also, as I am in a no alcohol challenge- that he may give my strenght to say no thanks.... Give me strenght to stay on my plan.

Today we spend out on the dock and in the lake..It was wonderful. I swam, not able to touch, for a good 30 min. It felt good, and I feel like for me that will count as exersize... My pain is not even that bad. I am SO PRAISING and THANKFUL to God for today. I needed it!

Erika
