I Got Chewed Out!





What a weekend....... So busy ........... I will have pictures tomorrow............. Went to see Jean again Monday and we had such a great visit! I thank you for letting me vent the other day, you are wonderful!



Jean was in great spirits and we laughed and laughed and she chewed me out good! She and I have always had such a wonderful relationship. I was her teacher/pastor for several years during the friendship.




She reminded me that the gift that the Lord has given me was not given to be put on the shelf. She told me that she has been praying that the Lord knock me along side the head! We laughed and laughed. Such a beautiful spirit. She made sense and I listened as she reprimanded me.


I do miss teaching and ask anyone around here.......... Ask anyone, I will get started at the drop of a hat!

Anyway, my sadness and anger and questions about why are gone and I know that she is so in Love with the Savior that before her last breath is expelled from her lungs, she will be in the presence of the Lord. What a beautiful promise we have.

I will take to heart what she told me and instead of blessing her yesterday, she blessed me. Isn't that just like the Lord!

On the second note.......We (Chris and Dennis and myself) did 345 shirts this weekend for Special Olympics! I have pictures ! I will share that tomorrow.............


Got to go....... I have shirts to embroidery...... Have a blessed Tuesday.........

you bless me every time I come here! you cried the other day, I cried last night about Amanda, and I'm still crying way to personal to go into over blog, I am a mother and I WILL not let anyone run my precious child onto the ground, instead of getting on knees and pray, I vent in a wrong manner. My heart is so heavy with sadness this morning for my baby. I WISH YOU LIVED CLOSER, I need someone who loves Jesus, who can talk to me with the Holy Spirit heart and mind...I just need a hug from the Lord.
Love ya
Annette

Bless you, sweet one. I heard a song today by Alan Jackson and what you said about your friend reminded me of it. It is called, "Sissy's Song" and he wrote it in memory of his family's dear friend and housekeeper who died young. He sings, "She flew up to heaven on the wings of Angels,by the clouds and stars and past where no one sees, And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting, And I know she's smiling, saying Don't worry 'bout me."
Anyway, it is beautiful!

I have an award for you.

You are a true friend! It seems like the people we feel need our prayers, turn it around and give it right back to us!!! Your friend Jean is a very lovely lady, a true reflection of God's love.

Denise,

I am so glad that God sent you a blessing through your friend Jean. I'm sure she's excited about being in the presence of our Lord. What rejoicing will be done in Heaven upon her arrival.

Jean sounds like a wonderful woman. I hope she and Aunt May meet there. They would have gotten along well together.

Take care and God bless.
Hugs,
Mary
