God is Good

All the time.  I just wanted to share.  We all know that it's that time of year when we start thinking about what we can give each other.  Well, I had two really awesome God things happen yesterday at church.  Plus lots of other awesome things, it's just that these two really jumped out at me to share with you.

1.  I really wanted to get Hannah a Christmas mug.  We normally have a hot drink on Christmas morning, like Egg Nog lattes or something equally yummy.  There were four big beautiful mugs that we bought years ago, but the paint was chipping on them and they were tossed at the end of last Christmas season.  We had two whimsical mugs that are Christmas themed.  I had been on the look out for another set.  Then I decided that I was just going to get Hannah her own Christmas mug this year and we would have three all together.  Yesterday, we went to church, someone walked in to the class I was in and asked if anyone needed ONE Christmas mug. Needless to say, Hannah loves it :)

2.  As we were sitting in Joel's office yesterday.  I decided that I would get him a new jar of candy.  He likes to keep candy in the office and his supply was pretty much done.  There was a luncheon after the service and we won one of the prizes, which was....a big container of Jelly Bellys.

I'm not sure exactly what it is that God wants me to spend my money on this season, but He has made it pretty clear that He's willing to help me out in some areas in order to insure that I will have the funds when it presents itself.  I am thankful that God provides for me in such small ways, because it always reminds me that if He's in the mundane then He is definitely in the extraordinary.

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 if you are in the midst of a s…

Thankful Thursday

Hard to believe that it's Thursday already, but it is! Wow! I'm thankful for a whole bunch of things this week, so many that if I would list them all, I'd be here for the rest of the day and into tomorrow. Heck I'd be lucky to be done by the end of the decade.

I'm thankful for my husband! He's a real trooper. Love how he not only cares for so many people through the church, but that he cares for our family. Seems like he's always got just a little bit more time to do what needs to be done, which is pretty amazing considering that he's only got the same 24 hours that I have.

I'm thankful for my little girl. I enjoyed the time away when she was at camp last week, but we've been having fun this week hanging out together. She's pretty amazing in lots of hard to explain ways, I guess she's mysterious in her lovliness. I hope that others are as impressed with it as I am.

I'm thankful for family near and far. I'm looking forward to spe…
