Blog Party...

Today I am joining in at the Ultimate Blog Party! For those who are new here, my blog began a couple years ago to keep my family who lives far away in touch with what was going on in my day to day to life. Since then it has evolved into a place where I share things I've read that were encouraging or convicting, sermons that were helpful, music I enjoy, and of course updates and pictures for family and friends. Though I wasn't so sure about it a couple years ago when some friends convinced me to start this blog....I've grown to love blogging:-). In addition to getting to share what is on my mind, I love reading other's blogs, and meeting other bloggers. It always brightens my day when I get a comment from someone who was helped and encouraged by something I shared.

 I love chocolate, children, books, and writing (though not necessarily in that order:-).  My days are spent working for friends, helping with their six children (soon to be seven, Lord willing), and doing what I can to 'take care' of my brothers that I live with. Free time is spent reading, blogging:-), knitting, crocheting, sewing, taking and editing pictures, spending time with friends...I keep busy! Though my blog began to keep my family updated, the main purpose of it is to glorify the Lord,  I hope you'll be blessed spending time with me as I seek to follow and wait on Him. Thanks for visiting!

"It may be of good use to Christians to preserve in writing an account of the providences of God concerning them, the constant series of mercies they have experienced, especially those turns and changes which made some days of their lives more remarkable . Our memories need this help.....that we may 'remember the way which the Lord our God has led us in the wilderness.'"
Matthew Henry

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
