Isn't my little hippie cute? We even drew a peace sign tattoo on his hand with eyeliner. I almost wrote LOVE across his knuckles but he wouldn't let me. I told him he looked great and he said, "I feel ridiculous!" He said everything but the tie dye T-shirt was crazy. I had to go online and show him pictures of hippies to get him to wear it.

Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
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.
Just thought I'd give a shout out to Jesus today because He is so awesome.
Spencer is seizure free 6 weeks today!!!!!!! That is the longest we've been since last April. Thanks for all of your prayers. Keep em coming.
Have a great day!

God said to Moses, "I am who I am.” This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.' "God also said to Moses, "Say to the Israelites, 'The LORD, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.' This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation. Genesis 3:14-15
Do you ever feel overwhelmed with what God has called you to do? When Moses encountered God in the burning bush and God revealed to him his assignment, Moses was overwhelmed too. He, as I’m sure many of us have done, came up with excuses as to why he couldn’t succeed in his task. I’m sure his fear was close to getting the better of him.
Sometimes, we can be overwhelmed by our emotions too. Our feelings somehow find a way to control our thoughts and we lose focus. We don’t feel we can accomplish our assignment. We make excuses to God. I’ve been reminded lately instead of focusing on what I am, I need to focus on the I AM. He is everything we need and will meet every need. He who began a good work in us, will carry it on to completion.
When I am sick, You are my healer.
When I am hopeless, You are my hope.
When I am unfaithful to You, you still are faithful.
When I am enslaved, You set me free.
When I am needy, You meet my needs.
When I don't know what to do, You are my wisdom.
When I am weak, You are my strength.
When I am sad, You are my joy.
When I am down, You lift me up.
When I am unlovely, You still love me.
When I am lost, You find me.
When I forget You, You remember me.
When I feel friendless, You are my friend.
When I feel powerless, You give me the same power you used when You raised Christ.
When I fear, You remind me to fear you instead.
When I am dirty in my sin, You wash me clean.
When I am hungry, You feed me with your Word.
When I am thirsty, You let me drink from Living Water.
When I feel like quitting, You keep me going.
When I feel like there is no way, You are the Way.
When I feel like no one notices me, You see me.
When I am tired, You give me rest.
When I feel like my burden is too much to bear, You remind me your burden is light.
When I am falling for Satan's lies, You remind me of Your Truth.
When I am in turmoil, you are my peace.
When I feel all alone, You remind me that You are there.
When I feel like I am sinking, You remind me you are the Rock I stand on.
When I don't recognize me or know who I am, You know me.
When I am accused, You are my defender.
When I feel misunderstood, You understand me.
When I am in darkness, You shine the Light so that I can see.
When I die, You will give me eternal life.
Thank you for being the great I AM.

I know I've not spent much time with you lately. Things have been busy and I also have a confession to make. I don't know how to tell you this, but I've met someone new.
His name is Facebook and he is so much fun. We have been spending lots of time together. I don't know where the time disappears to, but once a conversation starts, an hour can pass before I even realize it.
He also knows lots of the same people I do, even people I haven't seen since high school. It's been fun reminiscing and catching up on how everyone is doing.
I promise I haven't forgotten you. I still want to spend time together and vow to make time for you too. Please forgive me for not dropping in more often, but a girl only has so many hours in a day.
I promise to visit soon, more than just our weekly date on Saturdays.
