Look what just came and other blessings!

Hey I was just now busy putting a load of laundry in the washer and heard my "Great white Miniature Door bell" go off! I don't usually pay attention because he will sometimes bark at his reflection, and if it's people he gets that high pitched irritating bark! This was not that, just hey there is something that is bothering me bark. So I think maybe the mail came so I go out in the garage and guess what I found! Two boxes! One had the video I needed for Sunday school in a couple of weeks, and the other held my winning prise from After A Cup of Coffee. This was made by Sweet Pea Cakes Etc. Isn't it cute!

Did you happen to notice the Roses behind the gift! Well they didn't come in the mail, but yesterday after coming home from school, Dad and the kids has a surprise for Mom! Yep, you guess it Rose! I don't get them very often. Not because my man isn't romantic and doesn't love me, but just because he doesn't think about thinks like that all the time! But when he does I sure appreciate it! Aren't they purrtty!!! Also in the picture you will notice my Precept training manual. Saturday I drove down to Indiana (in the rain, in the dark YUCK!) to go to Precept Ministries "Precept upon Precept" leader training. Except for the drive down it was wonderful! I don't know exactly how God is going to use this I just know he is. I so desire for people to know the word of God, and to live with a biblical world view, that I know this is part of His plan! I am excited about it, and feel a plan coming together to begin to disciple some of the people who have come to Christ through Evangelism Explosion! I have to talk with the Pastors, but I know that people who come to Christ need to know what they now means. What from here! The only way they will know this is through knowing God's word! I am so excited!!!

Lastly, this morning I began my study of the book of Ephesians! Chapter one is awesome! Below is 2 verses that stood out to me, and I thought of the our children when I read them! Pray these scriptures for your children! May they continue to grow in their knowledge and love of Jesus everyday!

Ephesians 1:17-18

17[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him,
18By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones),

Oh good grief keep reading from there it is so great!

Well back to the laundry now!

May God bless you REAL good!
