Just When You Think.....

Thinking, that was the first mistake, right? LOL Anyways, we thought there was going to be extra money this week after paying the bills. And there was. But, you know God has perfect timing. Josh's retainer broke and it ain't cheap! But I'm so glad that God knows everything and He is the one Who made sure the finances are there for that. I'm so glad that I serve a God Who takes care of His children! Most people will say that this is life and there is always something, and that is true. But, when life happens and God takes care of it before I even ask......well, that's just awesome!

Romans 8:28   "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

I have seen this verse tried and proved in my life so many times! This is another one of those times. Praising God for His promises. Every one is true!

Prayer is one of my most valued treasures. I enjoy talking to my Lord! I know He knows every single one of my needs, but He also wants me to come to Him for each one. God desires fellowship with His people. We touch the heart of God when we pray. But, I do look forward to the day when I will no longer need prayer. That day, I will be able to talk to Him face to face! Oh what a day that is going to be! Of course I will no longer have any needs except to be with Jesus and to praise Him. Prayer is where it all begins. You have to pray to be saved. I'm so glad and thankful that God gave us this treasure!

Restin' Up!

We just got back from Royal C Ranch Youth Camp this past Friday. There was a lot of great preaching and lots of fun. I am very tired but it is a good tired when the work is done for the Lord.

This week I am resting up and trying to get some housework and laundry done because Vacation Bible School begins Sunday in Sunday School and will end Wednesday night! Be praying for the Lord to work in every child that attends our VBS. Oh and be sure to pray that the girls win the Penny March Contest!  I will be teaching a class on Wednesday, so please pray for me to teach it right and to say just what the Lord wants me to.

I will rest up a bit more before our church ladies go to a Ladies' Retreat at Royal C Ranch. I'm looking forward to this retreat. I have only been to the youth camps and I just love the people here.

I get three or four days to rest up from that trip, and then right back to Oklahoma for the Heartland Baptist Youth Conference.  This was awesome last year! So I am looking forward to attending again this year. I enjoy working with the teen girls.

And of course, I will get three more weeks to rest up and then school starts. I am homeschooling my son this year, his Senior year. It wasn't the easiest decision we made, but it is the best for us. We will have this entire school year with Josh before he graduates and goes to college. I am so excited for him!

Whew! I need to rest after just thinking about all of that!

Until next time.....
