I'll See You Again

Has it really been almost FOUR years since any of us have posted to this place.

This place we used to come together to share our life journeys.

Yet somehow, God is still using this place to reach people.

We had nearly 1,700 page views last month despite no post in almost four years.

My Great-Grandmother passed away two days ago, and I'm really struggling with the fact that I thought when I went 'home' this coming up weekend that I would have time with her.

But I didn't.

I didn't get to say 'Good-Bye'.  And that's REALLY hard.  To know I was a week too late.

This song came on the radio earlier and it hit me.  HARD.

Will you guys pray for my family this week as we ready ourselves to say 'Good-Bye' to a woman who was such an integral part of my family?

A song of peace

I've been going through some trials in my life the past few days and I came across this song and thought I would share. Praise HIM for always being there for us when we call upon His name!!

I found these videos on another blog that I like to read.  Their story of HOPE and love is absolutely uplifting.  I don't know how some people do it, but they are an inspiration.

Prayer requests

I know we have a prayer log for requests but no one can actually read them until the blog page is opened up and we don't normally open up the page if we don't see a new here it is.

A cousin of two of the women in the local MOPS circle was recently in a tragic car accident. Her 4 month old son was killed and her 4 year old daughter is in the local children's hospital with bleeding on the brain. The mother had a broken pelvis, internal bleeding and bruising in her lungs. She was unaware of the death of her son and the condition of her daughter until days after the accident. The funeral for the baby will be held tomorrow. I'm sure they can use all the prayers we can provide! A memorial fund has been set up to help with funeral expenses. To donate please visit this link.

A young friend of mine delivered a baby that was born with water on his brain. The doctors only give him a few months to live. This can't be easy to accept for anyone involved.

Also, a friend of mine asks for prayers for her father. He has been battling cancer and has just learned it has spread to his bones.

Please help by praying for these families! I can't imagine what any of them must be going through!
Thank you everyone!!

Monday, January 10, 2011 as I have loved...

max lucado tweets.

thank goodness.

a nugget from this weekend was "There is more love in God's heart than there is sin in yours. Always."

how simple
how amazing
how profound

and how thankful i am
that it's true.

make 2011 the year you stop beating yourself up for past mistakes
for current shortcomings
and start living your life
simply to spread His Love

you'll be amazed at the shift in your life
when you start living like you can't possibly love enough

it's radical, yes
but it's what we are called to!

be love.
and please report back :0)

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.
- john 13:34, NLT

What's it all about?

I've mentioned Katie before on my other blog. Actually...she's a follower here at 'Enjoying Life One Cup at a Time'.  I absolutely ADORE her blog ( today's post was no exception.  I wanted to share it with you guys. (and I hope she doesn't mind) but it was just too powerful NOT to share!

God doesn’t work by Karma. Good for good, evil for evil. And I’m thankful because I certainly don’t deserve how good he has been.

Everything that happens, good or bad isn’t always just about us.

We all search for meaning in life’s circumstances but the real (sometimes hard) truth is... IT’S NOT ABOUT US.

God is a lot more important than us.  He loves us no doubt.  But I think he gets a little chuckle watching us trying to make it all about us. 

I can’t think of anyone else who was raised from the dead, for whom the calendar changed from BC to AD, or for whom people centuries before his birth (even outside of the bible) predicted hundreds of exact details about his life.  It SHOULD be all about him!

I don’t know if you know this but....He’s kind of a big deal.

As I mentioned before from the book crazy love (which by the way is a must read!  It changed my life) 
If the story of the world was a movie…guess what? We would NOT be the main character! Shocking I know. The best we can hope for is a supporting role.

The problem is most of us are so busy in our own little world getting so wrapped up thinking our “movie” is so important we forget to be the best supporting role we can be. Making the absolute BEST, most amazing, perfect “movie” on our own would be absolutely worthless in comparison to being a supporting role to the only “main character” that ever was or ever will be.

Forgive me father for ever getting in the way of your plans. Forgive me for ever thinking my ways are better than yours.  I pray I will make this short vapor of a life more about you, because only what is done for you will last. 

Beautiful - MercyMe

I first watched this video just a few minutes ago, heard the song on the radio for the first time driving home this morning, also just a few minutes ago. I thought this song is a good example of why this blog is in existence. To uplift one another, to give hope and inspire each other.
