a few thoughts...

Happy Sunday! This week has been a great one...very busy, but very productive. I have had a couple Junior League things to do this week and met a lot of new friends. Cal and I had a cook-out on Thursday night...and it was another "meat-off"....would you like a little meat with your meat? kind of meals! ha! Cal loves to cook out on his Big Green Egg (thanks Chuck/Dad!)

I am continuing to try to minimize things in my life, but it seems like every night I have some kind of a meeting! ha!

I am just having a few thoughts on this lazy Sunday, while I monogram! ha! I am just thinking about how great our God is and how the plans that he has for us are far beyond our feeble minds to grasp. I am stepping back and looking at all of the wonderful things he has place in our lives....an amazing family, a sweeeeet puppy, incredible friends and support system. Above all, I am so very grateful for the love and the bond that is between Cal and I. We can sit and talk for hours on a daily basis and NEVER run out of things to say! He is truly my best friend and I couldn't ask for more! Yesterday, he held me while I cried and never once asked me why, or what he could do to make me stop....he just simply understood!

I turned on the T.V. yesterday to see a program on the Christian channel about abortions. There was a ticker at the bottom of the screen that was counting each abortion that was taking place in the United States at that moment. When I turned on the TV, the program had been on for about 30 minutes, and in that 30 minute time over 700 abortions had taken place in our country. Where is the respect for life? What in the world in God thinking when Christian, loving, stable couples are forced to science in order to bare their own child, while millions of babies die daily? The answer to "What in the world is He thinking?" is simply....HE is not of this world! HE has great plans, and the people that are taking those lives will ultimately have to answer to HIM! We, as Christians, have to keep holding our heads up high and know that the plan HE has for us is immeasurable MORE than we can immagine!

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." Ephesians 3:20-21

Hope is the belief in things unseen. HOPE: is the confident, joyful expectation that God is working, both NOW and IN THE FUTURE, for my good and for His glory.
Our biggest duty as Christians, and the hardest thing, is to have FAITH and trust that God is performing His will, even if we are unable to see it yet....that is HOPE!

We will wait on God expectantly!
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! (I will see God work in my lifetime...but it may not be OUR plan)
Wait on the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; WAIT FOR THE LORD!!! Psalms 27: 13-14
We look forward in eagar expectation, but chose to live each day like it will be our last!

REMEMBER whose hand is on the wheel as we drive up this winding path!
