Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful that my 8-year-old daughter joined me in singing on the Thursday morning worship with the word set at OHOP. We were singing out of Song of Solomon. It was beautiful! Draw me away...

I'm also thankful to my prayer partners for their prayers regarding out "house" situation. The house we're renting has apparently been foreclosed on. Without our knowledge. It's complicated & we need those prayers. We're believing that God has a home for us and we will find it in His timing.

Most of all, I am thankful for the sweet love of Jesus. I don't deserve it, but He is longing for my love too!

Little Sacrifices

With the way things are going, not only in our nation but also in the world, I'm finally convinced that we are IN the end-times. I'm not going to get all political on you or try to convince you of my viewpoint at this time. Suffice it to say, I am determined to make some changes of my own in this horrible/WONDERful time.

Starting with the little things, like television and Coke. I don't really need those things, do you?
They're nice and all, and I'm not going to judge anyone else for watching T.V. or drinking Coca-cola. We all make our own choices. These happen to be mine.

Another little sacrifice I'm willing to make now is my time. My (relatively) peaceful morning time. The time I used to take to linger over breakfast, sipping coffee and reading while the kids played in mostly harmony. I want to have the kids in the prayer room with me - at the Orlando House of Prayer - as much as possible. Not only am I called to be an intercessor, but they are too. They're not too young to be raised up in prayer. This is the time. I'm convinced this is part of the reason that God thrust me into homeschooling this year. He's got to give me a little shove now and again to keep me going on the right path, don't ya know?

I'll be posting more on how we're doing. This morning went pretty well. There were distractions and some squirrelly activity, but there were also warfare prayers and communion. I think as we're there more as a family they will find their place and grow in grace. ;) Feel free to join us as OHOP has live streaming for the live sets now, and IHOP-KC has live streaming of their prayer room 24/7! It will bring peace and joy and love and Jesus into your home!

Not quite sure...

I tried to post on Saturday, but I'm not quite sure about how this is interfacing with my new imac. I was having a hard time finding a photo for 6 Word Saturday. Frustrated, and pressured by a attention-seeking husband, I gave up and moved on to more important things.

It's so tough to find a husband these days - especially one who is an awesome daddy to 7 kids.

Anyway, I hope to remedy the situation soon. I love to have a photo to accompany my posts. My children are adorable and entertaining, to say the least. Again, I'll have to cut this short because my time and attention are needed elsewhere. We're going to have to have a talk on "kindness." Especially with our words. I'm tired of yelling, and I'm not quite sure how to handle the madness in the house.

Oh, well, His mercies are new EVERY morning!

Thankful Thursday

Antonio, Rocky & Nick with their CUBE

Yes. I am back again. FINALLY!
I have been thinking and percolating and juicing up good thoughts for my blog home.

Today, I am thankful for my beautiful new iMac. It's a HUGE blessing!
I am also thankful that God is ever-present and ever-lovely to me. I don't deserve His attention. (But, He thinks I do.)
I am thankful for a longsuffering husband and loud crazy children.
I am thankful for the IHOP-KC webstream. What could be better than sitting at the feet of Jesus?

I am thankful to have this blog to pour out my thoughtstream before it escapes entirely.
