Have a blessed day today ladies.
I need to buy more coffee, Costco has the best tasting coffee, I will have to drive there for that and also some cheese that comes from Ireland.
Hi everyone. I have to say that picture of Elijah and Gracie just made my day. I am smiling so big, they look so joyous. Thank you,Cindy.And Oh Jesus. I am so excited for you!!!I will be praying the Lord make clear what He wants you to do.I am behind you 100%. I could do the e-mails but that leaves out the forums or does it?I am still illiterate on the comp.I loved your first board and I can't find another one where everyone is so non-judgemental and accepting and truly loving.It has carried us this far.God is good and I am so excited for you.
I am also praying what the Lord wants for the next chapter of my life and waiting . I do know He wants me in fellowship with a home church.He wants me to have real -life people close to me to help me grow and be accountable to others and serve Him in the real world.That is scary but I know He can do it.
Anna,what kind of cheese do you buy from Ireland and why?Inquiring minds want to know. And you never did tell me if I can call you "Marlene"?Instead of Anna?Lol, That's what I meant.I don't mind Anna,tho.
It sounds like everyone had such good holidays.I am so happy for everyone.Everyone be sure to post pictures of your Christmas trees when you get them.
I have to ask for prayer for my kids.God is about to step in ,I pray.Robin called me and told me something.After Thanksgiving.She said she tried to tell Steven and the boys but they just looked at her like she was crazy.She was so hopeless,unable to help Steven through his dads death and she still can't but she got so down the Holy Spirit raised up an attitude of Gratitude.She was so full of joy she didn't know what to do or to talk to and she thought she was crazy cause she just knew everything was going to be alright and work out for the Glory of God.She didn't know the words but as we talked I figured out what was happening and was able to keep my mouth shut and told her to keep listening for the Lord was talking to her and He would make known to her what ever it was.I warned her the devil would try to steal her joy,wherein was her strength, but she was to remember what the Lord told her and to get in her Bible.Is that not wonderful?Then the next day,yesterday,was the drs. apt that wasn't.It's next month!Ugh!But I got to spend hours with Robin shopping laughing and talking.And we got to talk about the Lord a lot.She has been saying the last few days "Thank you ,Jesus" that's all she says.She thinks she has to be right to talk to Jesus.I got to explain positional righteousness. And she has seen God work in my life so many years and she knows I am a SINNER. Praise God,Jesus is the hope of their little family and everyone in the world.Please help me pray for them.Steven is a baby in the Lord.Robins dad was an evangelist for 8 yrs.
I can be so down when I come here but if I come to chat first and read how others live and enjoy life and my blessings fly up in my face and I wind up not even going to the pain or trials forums.Love you all,Ruthanne
I'm so glad everything is going well for you and your family. I will say a prayer for your children as soon as I post this. It's wonderful to see how the Lord is guiding and helping you!
We went to GA last week for Thanksgiving. My sister and her family of 9 (it would be 10 but her oldest son is away at college) also came down from VA and they stayed with my mother, so my family of 4 stayed nights at a hotel but were at her house during the days. We had a wonderful time together, although of course it was hard without Daddy. I told John though, the big crowds always made Daddy nervous and he kind of 'hid out' anyway, as best he could. So it's not like he was always 'out there,' the center of attention-- because he was quiet and kept a low profile.
Well I've been battling a migraine this week but have to get up and get ready for an appointment with a CPA this morning. We got a letter from the IRS saying we owed back taxes and we don't think we do -- but we paid it anyway and are now seeing a CPA to see if we can file an appeal to get it back. Sure hope WE are right and not them!
Love to everyone. So glad it's December!
I'm glad to hear Daniel is doing well now and I'm sure his xrays will prove he's just fine. I sure hope the CPA can get your money back from the IRS. They can be so nasty (the IRS, not the CPA ) It sounds like you had a good thanksgiving, although I know it had to be hard missing your Dad too. I'm keeping you and your mom in prayer and know the Lord will comfort and strengthen you both.
