Why Am I Still Amazed?

I cannot tell you the number of times that I am amazed by God.  I should be used to it by now and just be amazed when I'm not amazed.  Cause really, that's how often I am amazed.  I think God has really outdone Himself, I turn the corner and there God goes again showing off His love.

This weekend, I had a couple of really amazing things happen.  I was planning on meeting with a couple of ladies this past Friday, and when I woke up there was a major winter advisory already posted for that evening.  Well, I thought about calling around and seeing if we all wanted to cancel.  But instead held off to see what would happen.  Turns out it was dry as a bone well into the night.  And I know because I ended up driving home around 11 that night.  We ended up talking after dinner and pretty much closing down the restaurant.  They were moping when we left and still no snow.  God is very good. 

After I got home and settled in to bed, there was a phone call.  Yes in the middle of the night.  My brother and sister in law were headed to the hospital.  Her water broke, a month before her due date.  I was able to talk to my mom when I woke up and it was clear that my nephew was joining us that day.  He ended up being born early that afternoon at the amazing weight of 6 pounds 7 ounces.  He's beautiful!  I can't wait to get my hands on him and give him tons of kisses.

On Sunday, I wanted to see a baptism that was happening during the second service, but had to keep an eye on Hannah.  I was so blessed to be able to check on the service and happen to get a bird's eye view of the entire thing.  It was beautiful and I am definitely looking forward to seeing little Lydia grow up and do mighty things for God.

God is doing many beautiful and wonderful things, all the time and everywhere.  As I read recently, the question where is God, but where is God not?  He's all around, working, loving and helping us to see His mighty hand at work.

  1. Thank you Tina for breakin it all down and bringing me back to where I should have been in the the first place and showing me again that its not about me but about God and the wonderous things that he does for us and the people he puts in our paths to show that he loves us unconditionally and that where he is there is Peace.

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.
