Heart Preparing

Well, I discovered something extremely important today. I wish I was rich during the Christmas season! There are so many people/organizations I want to support/buy for. Normally, I don't mind not having extras - but these days I do. I know God will get me through this too...He is truly all I need! I FINALLY understand WHY Jesus' sacrifice is the GREATEST GIFT we can be given! Without His sacrifice, I couldn't have my quiet time in the morning! That is my most valuable asset!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Season

As Christmas continues to draw near, I am realizing some amazing things! I have been praying that God would help me be MORE generous. I am not extremely selfish, but feel like I would like to be more generous. His Spirit has moved SO MUCH that I find myself wanting to give to everyone! Every single item is Kingdom driven - to help others - so I know it's Him! I think I need to complete a list, along with amounts, and figure out exactly what I can and can't do!

I continue to pray for the Chandler family from the Village Church in Texas. The latest update is that Matt's stay in the hospital will be a little longer than initially hoped, but he continues to improve every day. The pathology report is still not back, but he and his family remain faithful! They are such an inspiration to me! If you have a chance, go to his Church site and listen to a sermon or two! You'll join me in encouraging his return - I want to learn more and more!

I recently started reading a book entitled "Primal". Mark Batterson is the author and oh my goodness, does he have some amazing insight. He has written two other books: "Wild Goose Chase" and "In a pit with a Lion on a snowy day". I am working the study for Wild Goose Chase and he has changed my life. I tell you what, there is nothing like growing/changing!

Close to Christmas

My heart continues to ache for many who have lost loved one recently. The tragic accident in Poquoson where a 14 year old young man was killed. Now the preacher from The Village Church in Texas (35 years old) with a mass in his brain. Still waiting to find out if the tumor was cancerous and how he will be treated. I must say that watching he and his wife walk through this trail is life changing. They are truly honoring HIM in ALL! Both he and his wife have blogs/twitters and indicate their hope that the outcome (whatever that may be) will honor God. What peace. I continue to pray without ceasing.
