Our neighbors on both sides of our home have trampolines in their backyards. This proves to be a great attraction to many of the kids in our cul-de-sac including my daughter. I don’t mind her jumping, but there is only one problem. One neighbor has a net around her trampoline and the other does not. So the rule is, you can jump on the one with the net, but not on the other. After all, I have to do as much as I can to keep her safe, right?

Then Sings My Soul Saturday

Tonight at our school's 10 year birthday party, two of our students sang this song. I had forgotten how much I love it. It brings me to such a place of worship. Hoping it does the same for you!

I praise Him and worship Him because of who He is.

Elohim - God, Mighty Creator
El Roi - The God Who Sees Me
El Shadday - God Almighty
El Olam - The Everlasting God
Yahweh Yireh - My Provider
Adonay - My Master
Yahweh Rophe - My Healer
Yahwey Nissi - My Banner
Yahweh Shalom - My Peace
Yahweh Tsuri - My Rock
Yahweh Tsidqenu - My Righteousness
Abba - My Father
El Elyon - The God Most High

Sweet Blessings,

I'm going back to one of my all time favorite groups tonight. I love Casting Crowns and this is one of my favorites!

He is always enough for me! I need to keep reminding myself of that sometimes.

Praying you have a blessed weekend and that you will find He is enough for you too.

Then Signs My Soul Saturday

Hello Friends,
I hope you have had a blessed week and that you have some great plans for Labor Day Weekend! We are planning for some much needed rest. The school year has gotten off to a busy start and we need a little break!

This past week I finally rented and watched the movie Letters To God. I really enjoyed it. Although I recommend a box of tissues if you plan to watch it.

This song was in the movie and it really spoke to me. I'm leading a Bible study by Kay Arthur on prayer right now and this song really expresses how many people feel about prayer I think.

Also there is some information at the bottom of this post about the NRB's call to prayer.

Hope you enjoy!
Have a blessed, safe weekend.

The information below is taken from TGIF by Os Hillman.

A CALL TO PRAYER--On September 1st, the National Religous Broadcasters (NRB) will inaugurate a 40-day prayer campaign called ?If My People.? There is no agenda, movement or march planned around this call to prayer. The instruction, command, and direction from God is simple and clear, taken from 2 Chronicles 7:14: ?If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.?

God moves in the affairs of men and nations, and critical issues face us today on every level: our families are broken; the social fabric of our culture that was once our strength is now torn and tattered; our government is unproductive at best; our educational system is misguided; our economy is crumbling; and even many of our churches seem weak and ineffective. These issues seem too complex to correct, and the spiral continues downward in all areas of our culture and society. The underlying causes of all these problems are spiritual, and only God can make things right.

One hundred fifty years ago, America faced similar problems. One man, Jeremiah Lamphier, was moved to action in calling others to prayer. The impact on our nation was historic, as men and women came to Christ, repented of sin, and turned their focus to God and righteous living. Will you join the effort to day, and accept the call to prayer, as instructed in 2 Chronicles 7:14?
