{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!  Web image We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS.  There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me.  We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shr

Wednesday In The Word-Armor of God

I read a true story once about a motorcycle policeman that saw a red pickup truck speed through a stop sign. He turned on his lights and managed to get the man to pull over. As the policeman was walking up to the drivers window the man driving is saying to himself, " The cop already knows what I have done". The man reached for his gun that he had just used to rob a store.The officer said, "Good morning sir, may I see your......" He never finished his sentence. The driver fired his gun just inches from the officer's chest knocking him seven feet away. Seconds later, the criminal was shocked to see the officer stand up and pull his revolver. The driver shouted, "Don't shoot" as he tossed his weapon and stolen money out of the window. What saved the officer's life? The dozen layers of super strong fabric used for a bullet-proof vest.   Thought for today: If the officer has not had on the bullet-proof vest it could have cost him his life. The sam


I have been re-reading "Just enough LIGHT for the Step I'm on" by Stormie Omartin. I was given this book in 2000 and have underlined, highlighted and even made notes on some of the pages. As I began reading it again I was inspired at how God has carried me through some times in my life that seemed to be dark .  I can remember so vividly a time in my life that I truly wondered if the sun would ever shine again. Oh did the SON ever shine but there was days I couldn't see it because I wasn't looking! We get so caught up in being distraught, an gry, sad, and even depressed that we forget that what we going through or dealing with has a much larger picture than we see.God sees the big picture but all we see is the little picture.  Sometimes we just have to find a different way to view out situ ation! I real ized that when I was able to see things from God's pers pective I was able to find the light even in the midst of darkness.   One of the thi


How many times have you been in a situation that you truly felt that all you could do was pray? I cannot tell you the times I have said, "Well, all we can do is pray about it." All we can do is pray??????????? God has been showing me just how short sighted I can be at times! The most absolute BEST thing I could EVER do is pray!        Image credit     . The same power that raised Jesus from the dead is available to me for my needs! How wonderful it is to know that my Lord inter cedes for me.  Prayer proje ct s faith on God, and God on th e world. ONLY God can m ove m ou ntains, but FAIT H and PRAYER move God!   Image Credit   The forces of Heaven are opene d u p and the gates are flooded when one person prays. Ca n you imagine what happen s when ALL the Saints in One Ac cord Pray together for God's Will to be accomplished?    Image Credit     EM Bounds, a man that knew how to pray and loved to teach others about prayer said, "Faith

Wednesday in the Word-Psalm 5:2

 Dr. Edsel Bone shared a story once about a man that was doing some shopping in the grocery store and his small son was closely following him. The boy was carrying a large basket and the father was loading it with one item after another. He put in canned goods, sugar, flour, meat and a variety of vegetables. A customer who was watching began to feel sorry for the youngster, thinking his load was becoming too heavy for him. Walking up behind him she said quietly, "That is a big load for a little chap like you to carry isn't it?" The boy turned to her as if surprised by her question. T hen he smiled and said, "Oh, don't worry, my dad knows how much I can carry!" Contrary to what many of God's people think, our heavenly Father also knows our load limit and understands precisely how much each of us can endure. For every added load that seems to take us to our limit, our Heavenly Father has considered it's weight and has also offered Himself as our
