I HAVE A QUESTION !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey girls.......... Dennis and I ended up sick Thursday and I went to be early with a fever....No Tulsa trip for us.........Just sat around on Friday under my heated blanket and slept......... Today we are better but not up to par......... Our Tulsa trip will have to wait a couple of weeks......... sooooooooooooo


I am sitting at my laptop , that is where I do all of my blogging. My shop computer is for my business only and I never sit at it in the evening.... so all my blogging is in my comfy chair with my laptop........... Today I went into my shop and was working on some designs and opened my blog..... and it is huge ......... the page is bigger and you have to scroll across the bottom to see it all...... You cannot see the side bar at all.........My sweet hubby said it is because of the resolution, and most people have the resolution like my shop that means that most of you are looking at my blog that does not fit the page................. YUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, I need to know how many out there has trouble seeing all of my blog without having to scroll across the page! If that be the case, then I will build my blog on my shop computer so that it looks ok for you gals......................

LET ME KNOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Time Out!

Me and my sweet hubby is taking some time out....... Hard week this week.......Spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday moving a cousin from Springdale, Arkansas....... Mercy we were tired.... Then there was a pretty emotional day Wednesday afternoon. So we are headed to Tulsa in the morning for two days. There is a couple of things I want to do while I am there and then it is off to see a movie and stay in a hotel with an indoor pool ! YES !!!! I have missed my swimming.

So I think I am not taking my laptop, and not going to do any blogging. I want to study my new Jewish old Testament bible that I got for Christmas. So lots of quiet time I hope............ I think I will share with you when I get back some very emotional things that the Lord is taking me through. I will have to walk out on a limb to do it and I pray that the Lord goes out on a limb with me... I want very much to pour out my heart here on the blog and reach out and touch other women that has walked where I have walked. So I will begin to share my life............. It needs to begin with my earthly father. So gals have a great weekend and I will be home sometime Sunday.
Love ya much and let us get on with the things of the Lord......



We had a wonderful day.......... Had nice family visit with Mom and Dad and PE and Alpha and then out to dinner with brother and his wife and then over to Tisha & Harold's for small party........ She is like the sister I never had so we enjoy the visit and the laughing...........

It is a new year with new hopes and dreams and opportunities to see what God has in store for us.
Love you gals so much and look forward to the times ahead...................... It is so late now and I need to lay down!

Night !

Happy Birthday Mom..........

................. LEAF LIST..............

The New Year, time for turning over a new leaf, Right?

This is the time for resolutions and new beginnings of a new year. I have so many times in the past voiced out loud my "I'm Gonna" list.
No more.

Lets see now:

1. Lose this 40lbs that I am dragging around behind me.
2. Read My Bible more
3. Watch my mouth and listen more.
4. Study more and TV less.
5. Attitude, attitude, attitude.
6. Less murmuring and more praise.
7. Stop procrastinating and finish a project.
8. Organize my life
9. Turn over a new leaf.

When I looked I found that the other side of my leaf was the very same as the one that was now hidden, I cried.
It is the same list that I made last year. I know I tried to accomplish those things, I did I really did............."Again I cried.. I cannot do this Lord."

"I know you cannot was HIS response............. "But I can."

Gal 2:20
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.

I love the writing of the Apostle Paul. He spent three years alone being taught by the Holy Spirit, and when he came on the scene he spoke the deep things of the Lord.
We were crucified with Christ and now we are dead, but yet we are still alive, but we live by the faith OF the Son of God. That little word OF is so very important.

The Father made provision for EVERYTHING in our lives even our faith. The faith OF Christ I now live. Did Christ have faith? Oh my gosh of course......... We now live being dead in the flesh living and moving in Christ with the faith that Christ had to do the living.
Now re-read that, and soak it in.

Sometimes it is hard for me to wrap my mind around those things. Dead men to not fret or worry or strive. Consider yourself dead Paul says, consider yourself unable to function as to living outside of Christ. NOW that you have fed on that........ draw on the faith that JESUS had and live.
If we can ever get to the place that when we set our feet on the floor each morning, we have a conscience thought that we are dead IN CHRIST, the things on our leaf list will be hidden away in Christ, and if that be so, what things can we accomplish this new year in the name of the Lord.

HE did the dying so that we could live, but not live in our power but in the power of CHRIST.
"but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith OF the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

What is on your leaf list that you need to hide in Christ?

HAPPY NEW YEAR girls. I am so blessed that each of you are in my life and I look forward to continued friendships and I look forward to what the Lord is going to do you each of your lives this year of 2009.
