Now Introducing…

It’s been a busy weekend. The “web page guru” had smoke flowing from his ears by about 6 p.m. on Saturday….he did so much, and I’m so proud of him. We share a common vision of what we would like our web spaces to be, and he’s working extra hard to get them there.

Last week was very draining. It seemed like we went from one bad thing happening to another. It was very hard to just push through. I have a much deeper respect for the older people in my life knowing that they have experienced a lifetime of sorrows and joy. I for one, was ready to go to bed and pull the cover over my head. I’m so glad that I have my Lord to cling to in times when things seem to be at their very worst. I wouldn’t want to be one without faith because there would be no strength and no comfort.

This week, I’m preparing to have my wisdom teeth removed. I would like to make sure that my family doesn’t have a messy house to deal with, on top of Mom resting. As always, there are also sewing projects that I have to work on and a couple of recipes that I would like to try.

Prayer Requests

Please continue to pray for Nate and Nayda. The news coming from the doctors is not at all encouraging, and at this point, they just need comfort and wisdom concerning their new little son.

For my friends who are tending and praying. I know for me this situation has been draining, and yet like each of them, we all know it is nothing compared to what these two parents are feeling. Please pray that the Lord provide peace and comfort to those who provide comfort during this time of need.

Please pray for Roberta who is having a biopsy performed this morning.
Please pray God’s touch over her body.

Our car is still not 100%. I’m not sure if you could say it’s 60%. There is so much that needs to be done. Please pray that God will provide for this need in our lives.

That the Lord would use these web spaces for His will….we want to be instruments for His greater glory.

Today I’m Thankful For

New pumpkin blooms!

A new week!

A nice time of fellowship yesterday with some new friends.

Hopefully, a few, rare moments of fellowship with some old friends! (Not that you are old ladies!) 🙂

Rain! It rained over the weekend. All my little (well, some not so little) plants are so happy! (…and thank you Christy for your comment over the weekend! I am so glad that it rained. I’m so glad that Jesus has living water…that washes and waters so much more!)

A song that comforted me over the weekend from Michael W. Smith’s praise album:

Healing Rain

Healing rain is coming down
It’s coming nearer to this old town
Rich and poor, weak and strong
It’s bringing mercy, it won’t be long

Healing rain is coming down
It’s coming closer to the lost and found
Tears of joy, and tears of shame
Are washed forever in Jesus’ name

Healing rain, it comes with fire
So let it fall and take us higher
Healing rain, I’m not afraid
To be washed in Heaven’s rain

Lift your heads, let us return
To the mercy seat where time began
And in your eyes, I see the pain
Come soak this dry heart with healing rain

And only You, the Son of man
Can take a leper and let him stand
So lift your hands, they can be held
By someone greater, the great I am

Healing rain, it comes with fire
So let it fall and take us higher
Healing rain, I’m not afraid
To be washed in Heaven’s rain

To be washed in Heaven’s rain…

Healing rain is falling down
Healing rain is falling down
I’m not afraid
I’m not afraid…

Tracy’s Task

Get my home in order for Friday! “…and that’s all I have to say about that!”

What I’m Learning

O. K. This is the truth, as ashamed of it as I am. I really have never cared for Michael W. Smith’s music. I went years and years of liking one or two songs here and there but nothing ever really spoke to me. I’m not sure why, maybe it was that I was young and just couldn’t appreciate it? I have to say that the last few years have changed my mind completely. This man helps write and perform some of the most heart-felt songs that I have ever heard. I’m not afraid to admit when I’m wrong and in the case of Michael W. Smith…I was REALLY wrong.

Today’s Scripture Meditation

On Living Water……

John 7:37-38
“On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

So grateful for the living water of a loving Lord,
