Saturday happies...

I think I stole that blog title from someone, if is was you...I'm sorry, I just couldn't come up with one on my own...

Went to bed last night at 8:15 and woke at 9:30 AM...You think I was tired?? I was, well I drove and got a Delicious cup of coffee, dropped my daughter at her very own tap class, (that she is wanting and happy to attend***GASP***) and headed to the baseball fields...Josh's team mercied the other team. Jake's team won also! Since Josh's team scored max runs, Coach treated the team to ice cream...it was awesome... came home, watched my very favorite show Gilmore Girls and cooked for two hours did dishes, had half my homemade salsa spill all over the floor...UGH cleaned it up and I'm going to get cleaned up before eating a yummy Mexican meal with friends! Yeah, boring post to read, but it was an incredibly great and wonderful day! Oh yeah, I've not taken many pictures lately because my camera is messed up, but here is a sweet one of my youngest at last weekends tournament..

A note to say HI and a bit of ramblings beside...

Well, what a whirlwind life has been for the past school year! Seems for the last three years each year has held a new and unique flavor of difficulty and trial. Yet tucked in the midst, some of the most amazing treasures have been added to my life! About 7 years ago, I really came to a place in my life where I felt the call of full time ministry and in my very immature mind, I was like, how could I be so blessed to be called to such a task?? While I do agree it is a great blessing, the ideal of the form that blessing comes has taken a great shift! I have no right in and of myself to minister to one single soul, I realize how quickly the flesh takes residence and will win the battle of my will with out a proper and intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus! Even then there is a walking out life's circumstances in the power of the Holy Spirit every day that we are all learning to do effectively!

I have recently had a great moment of discouragement and glory to His Name, I'm not going to relive it here and describe it yet again! Every time I go back to the place, the tears come flooding my eyes and heart...but not I am just saying I theoretically fell hard in something I desperately wanted and worked hard for and fell in fact in front of some people I greatly respect and love! What a lesson I will have learned once it is all said and done! But, I am choosing to get back up and try again, but not until after I allow the Lord to tend to some hurts and broken places that I certainly am aware of at this minute!! LOL, don't you love the vague-ness of this post! Sorry, it is a bit of therapy!

As for the future of this ministry venture???!!! I am pressing on toward the goal of Christ Jesus! However He leads me, I will go! I an heading into His sweet presence for a season, I am taking the summer for intense study and time with Him...no leadership, no ministry(other than family and friends) I have a great outline of some studies I would like to complete and some straight through some different books of the Bible! I am so excited! Time alone with my savior! Oh what a delight!

As for the sweetest blessings, there are some amazing friendships the Lord has placed in my life, some that I wouldn't even have known had I not stepped out in faith as we changed churches a year ago! I am so thankful to the Lord for that! I am so thankful His Word is truth and how He says so perfectly that the Truth shall set you free! And whom the Lord set free is free indeed! I want to be free! Praise the Lord! I have one very dear friend the Lord has taken the sweetest of circumstances to develop! Praise the Lord for He has shown me that there are sweet lasting friendships to be had! I almost had given up on that thought...not a poor me, I just so have desired that and have had it taken from me so often! I love godly friends! Oh my and the world of blogger friends that are being sweetly developed whew...I love that there are some precious friends that are around the country studying the Word together and being real with one another and loving together and laughing together and hurting together and praying for one another...Oh my how I see the Lords creative use of this technology thing and using it for His sweet glory and purposes! What a sweet delight! Worship is a great delight! What a motivator and time of conviction and blessing to worship the God of creation!

I told you this would be a rambling...

I have found that I don't blog often because I am a relational person and since so rarely do people comment I don't really know if anyone even reads my blog or even cares...LOL, not a poor me thing, just I formed this blog for friends and family to follow what we are up to since we are so long distance from EVERYONE, I don't even think family reads it...LOL.. so that is the reason I don't really blog very often! I should do a better job of daily life blog entries, because we are a hysterical bunch with goofy things happening everyday...

OK well, I'm going to head off my kids are getting a bit demanding and I need to attend to them... I love you all.....

Well, it is noon and we have arrived at the day of the event! Oh my is it raining! Oh my is it just coming down! Last night the Lord gave me such scriptures that would encourage my heart! We have prayed for this event for so many weeks, for me it has been months and months...We are going down in faith the Lord has a plan and a place for us!

Deut. 32:1-4
Give ear O heavens, and I will speak;
And hear I earth, the words of my mouth.
Let my teaching drop as the rain,
My speech distill as the dew,
as raindrops on the tender herb,
And as showers on the grass,
For I proclaim the name of the LORD
Ascribe the greatness to our God
He is the Rock, His work is perfect
For all His ways are justice
A God of truth and without injustice
Righteous and upright is He.

Whew...what a word! I Pray that the Lord will use my mouth like clay and mold is how He sees fit! That all praise and all glory be unto Him alone, I have been touched and blessed and quickened and changed by the message He has to speak!

LORD, You are holy and just! You are the ONE we love and adore! We come to serve You and lift you up!
As to the interactive radar, the storms look to be moving out of the area with in an hour or so! Dry ground Lord...please give us dry ground, yet the hearts of the people Lord would be fertile ground for the planting of the seed of Your Word!!! Oh that the hearts of these students would be drawn to the hearing of Your Word tonight! That we would have such favor...super natural favor in the hearts of students as they plan their evening draw them Lord draw them! That the people in Common Grounds would be drawn to enter Your Holy Presence as we worship and adore You! Let not one leave unchanged for Your glory! You Lord it is all about You and we are so privileged to serve You! Let the sound be with out glitch Lord bless the Worship team and their hearts as they lead us into Your sweet presence Lord that You would richly abide in our midst tonight and throughout the ministry at Baylor! Loft up the whole team tonight, what a sacrifice to get down there and time away from families and Lord I ask you to bless the families! Bless my family Lord as they are sharing me for the furtherance of Your amazing Gospel! Lord God you are everything to me and to us...
