Then Sings My Soul Saturday - The Mountain of God

We've been having a great weekend in the mountains of Tennessee for one last hoorah vacation before school starts. It's been lots of fun. It's so beautiful. I'll have to post some pictures later this week. Being in the mountains reminds me of this great song by Third Day.

Have a blessed weekend!

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Remedy Drive

I'm posting early this week. Hopefully, Mr. Linky will work!
Wooh, what a crazy week! As soon as Spencer and I returned from Wisconsin on Tuesday, we left for Colorado on Thursday for another epilepsy program. What fun! We are thankful for a great program and safe travel!
Of course when you are on a plane as much as we were this week, there's not much to do but read. I re-read a great book on this trip called When the Soul Listens by Jan Johnson. In it, Jan talks about prayer, and she highlights that we must believe that God is with us all the time, everywhere.
She says:
"Scripture assures us that God is present everywhere, at the same time: 'If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me.' Psalm 139:8-10
The problem is not that God goes away, but that we are unaware of his presence.
This song sort of reminds me that. Sometimes we are unware of His presence and we miss Him.
In the words of the song:
"I finally found what I could never see before, You've always been the one that I was looking for. I won't miss you this time."
I pray you and I won't miss His presence. He's been right here with us, All Along.

Sweet Blessings,

Lions Camp

Spencer and I have had a great trip to Wisconsin! We spoke at an epilepsy camp today. The kids asked lots of questions about Lucia of course! Thought I'd share some pictures!

Hope you have a blessed day!

Understanding the Voice of the Father

5 Minutes for Faith - Daily Devotions for Moms

As I walked with my son and our service dog through the airport, a little boy about three years old came over to pet our dog. He was chattering away trying to carry on a conversation the entire time he patted her head. I’m not sure if he was speaking to me or the dog; but either way, I didn’t understand a word he said.

Have a blessed day!

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - In the Hands of God

Mr.Linky is up now!! Some links to people's posts may be in the comments. Check those too for more great songs.

For some reason this week, I've had "hands" on my mind. I began to notice how much my hands resemble my mom's. Then I wondered if Mary Lyndsey's hands would look like mine when she gets older. Then, I began to wonder how much my hands resemble those of my Heavenly Father. Do I offer rest and hope to others as He does to me?

In His hands, we find hope, strength and rest.
You are amazing Lord, and we praise you for what your hands have done.

For you make me glad by your deeds, O Lord; I sing for joy at the works of your hands. Psalm 92:4

Hope you have a blessed weekend!

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Drifter

Not long ago I read an article by Charles Stanley about the danger of drifting. (If you would like to see the outline of his sermon click here.) It impacted me greatly because I have really been struggling lately in my spiritual walk. It made me realize that anyone can fall into the enemy's trap and suddenly find themselves way off the path God has set out for them. The good news is He is always ready and willing to help us find our way back to Him.

I love this song by December Radio. Hope you guys enjoy it too. 
Have a blessed weekend!

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Happy 4th of July

Sorry friends that I'm late posting TSMS this week. We were out of town and just returned so I finally have computer access. I hope you all have a great Fourth of July weekend!
I thought about posting Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA because it's one of my all time favorites, but I was looking at fourth of july songs and these two caught my attention.
Hope you enjoy them!

Happy 4th of July!!
