Happy Birthday JESUS!

Today was a great day!  After all that has happened in the last couple of weeks to my little big family, it was good to just be together!

I'll be honest.  I didn't expect much at all…you know the saying, the older you get, your list gets smaller, and you really focus on what's important, BUT, I got some pretty amazing gifts, and I'm very grateful!

I've been praying whining about some things to God over and over…I'm sure He's super sick of hearing me, but in the event that I must embody the persistent widow, I didn't want to take any chances…lol!

Anyway, I couldn't help but reflect back on the last few weeks, and God is so in the details.  He sends little pieces of Him to encourage me when I need it the most.

He loves us, Oh how He loves us!!  Doesn't that just make you want to jump for J-O-Y?!?!

In the event that you need some encouragement, here are some truths you can stand on until your persistent prayer turns into a prevailing prayer:

1.  He cares about what you care about.
2.  He loves you.
3.  His timing is perfect.
4.  Grace abounds for you at every turn.
5.  God is not a liar.  He will do what he said He will do.

Merry, merry Christmas friends…I hope this day was filled with love and peace amongst you and your family!

None but Jesus

Love, Love, LOVE this song!!!  Look at this stanza...yes, yes, yes!!

In the chaos, in confusion
I know You’'re Sovereign still
In the moment of my weakness
You give me grace to do Your will

It's all about HIM...

I find myself humming these lyrics all day.  I can't get enough of Him!

Velveeta and Coconut Candies...

My Thanksgiving was great!  I got a ton of rest, and spent it with family at the farm, so no complaints from me!  

However, when I came back home, I really was not in a good mood.  Coco was at a slumber party....yes, you read that correctly, so I was 'in my feelings,' as they say.  I went to church, and the Word was right on time, but sometimes, you can still allow negativity to force its way in...even though you know better.....and last night...I threw a fit.  I mean, I let God know how I really felt, and when it was over can you believe I felt better.  Now, I'm not crazy, and I don't go around disrepecting God, but I just let it all hang out.  I told Him how I truly felt...just busted and disgusted...I think maybe I can be this real with God all of the time (as if He doesn't already know.), I was talking to a lady while working, and she was just sharing different things with me.  She had no idea how God was using her in that moment.  She had NO idea that her sharing about little things (Velveeta and Coconut Candies), that God has done to show her He cares was ministering to this little old heart of mine!  As she was talking, I had to contain myself because I just KNEW that in that moment, this was MY little thing from God to show me that He cares...and that it is all going to work out!

He loves us, OH how He loves us...Oh how He you know that song???

Needless to say, I've got a new attitude...ha!

Have a great day!  Two more Mondays until Christmas!!!!!!!  The MOST wonderful time of the year!!!
