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.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap. Study Questions Week 10 When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others?  When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person? When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments?  God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise?  Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#
