watch the sky



christian mother goose treasury book by marjorie ainsborough decker


When I was young I remember talking to my mom and my small group leader about what it would look like when Jesus returns in the clouds!  I was reading a Mother Goose book to my boys this week and when we came across this poem... it hit me. 
I felt my heart and soul AGREE and say YES.
"watch the sky"
listen for the sound of the glorious trumpet cry
"prepare"

Our God is amazing in every way & He will return for his Bride!  It will be quite a showstopper to behold and see Him coming, as the clouds roll back!

Happy New Year 2012

What are your goals for 2012?

I have several...  a list actually.  Yes, I am one of those people!  I made a list of goals, hopes, and themes for 2012 and posted it on the wall in my bedroom.  My prayer over this year is that we, as a family, will take steps into a new season.  A better season.  A more peaceful and joyful season.  A giving season. 
I love hope and I am grateful to have hope.  New Year's Eve is a night of HOPE.  It's like another chance.... another opportunity to do better and better and even better.  I have been through a season where it was often hard to hope.  But I praise the Lord for Hope this year and next. 
God is FAITHFUL!  He is and always will be, faithful.  The truth is, He holds us in his hand and He is in control.  And the freeing - awesome - peace-filled truth is that HE LOVES US!  As my friend Tom says, "God is good and He's in a good mood."

Happy New Year!!

May the Lord Bless You, Your Family, and all the Hopes and Dreams you hold for the coming year.... If our dreams our His, He will complete them.

my poor baby

 Here we are in late December.... getting ready for Christmas and family coming to visit...  When we have a terrible accident with our little one.  He took the cover off of the heat vent in the floor and fell in the open vent... where a sheet rock screw was waiting for his little sweet leg.  23 stitches later we are doing fine!!  My awesome Father went around the house and screwed the heat vent covers to the floor so that he would never have something like this happen again.  Poor Baby!!  There is a fine line between being curious and being dangerous.  I was 20 ft away fixing lunch when it happened and of course I had major mom guilt.  But thank goodness for Scottish Rite and their wonderful staff for helping our little RaceCar recover quickly.  now the other trick.... the new stitches cannot get wet for two weeks.  But at least he's OK and we will all have a Merry Christmas together with family!!!!  Thank you Lord for your protection and that that there was NO nerve damage at all! 

ALL TODDLER PARENTS: Please screw down your floor HV/AC covers!
