Ever carry a heavy load?

Ever feel like that? Ever carried a load that heavy? Oh, I have!!

I really do not know what people who do not know the Lord do without Him! There is a situation that I have carried for 6 months now that could surely overwhelm and drag me down! At times, I have been known to let it become more than I can carry! I am so thankful that I remember to turn it over to the one who is big enough to carry it! Just Sunday night and yesterday morning, I picked it all up myself.................I have to tell you, I cannot do it! Only in Him do I find the peace and strength to make it another day! I do know that He is in control, He works all things to His good! What more can I ask for? I so love turning things over to Him! So my prayer today is,
Lord, I know that I am not big enough to carry it, nor do I want to! Thank you for reminding me that You are in control. Help me to have the strength and peace that you promise and to remind all of those today who are trying to do it on their own, that it will sure turn out a lot better if they just let you have it!! Thank You for listening and taking over one more time!

Scones and Tea

I just saw this picture of scones with Devonshire cream and jam. It does so make me want to go to my favorite tea house. I do believe that I will take the time this week and take Cherish to tea. We've gone a couple of time with others, but since my husband and our church men are setting up 70 firewords stands this week, I think I will just indulge! Maybe! I have to check to calorie content first!!! Diets take the fun out of everything! If I'm really careful, I could possibly do it, legally! Oh, I do so love hot tea and scones!

Who are we? What do we believe?

I am so excited. We have so many new converts and trying to figure out bible studies for them all has been interesting. So after much talk, our Wednesday nights for quite a while will be new converts classes for our entire church! I have been so burdened recently by friends of ours who have always upheld truth in doctrine and holiness have put them all down for numbers. It has caused us to examine our own hearts. Then after talking to a young lady that has been in our church the entire 9 years we have been here, and she asked if we could possibly get information to her on what and why we believe, we are seeing the necessity of teaching all over again. Even for myself, I am so excited because we can all use a refresher now and then. We are apostolic and intend to stay just that! Not rule driven, but relationship driven. If we love the Lord, KNOW His Word, and truly desire to serve Him, rules will not matter, but what He wants does. I truly love my husband and because He loves my hair curled and healthy, I wear it in ways that I know he likes. He loves pork rinds and white powdered donuts, even though I detest both, I joy in seeing him and Cherish indulging in both. I may not think that this or that is important when living for the Lord, however, if He loves it, and took the time to tell us in His Word, then because I love Him and desire to make Him happy and definitely want to see Him, I "joy in seeing Him indulge!" I am so looking forward to seeing the understanding on the faces of our new babies as they see the sweetness of the "white powdered donuts!"

It won't work, Mommy!

Cherish really does play with her stuffed animals. They are her class at school that she teaches, they are her babies that are sick and she puts to bed, they are whatever she is playing at the time. She has two large drawers full of them and yesterday she had them all pulled out in in her floor. This is fine while she is playing. So there were about 50 large and small animals strung across her room at bedtime. I told her to go put them all back in the drawers. She left for a while and came back to me saying, "It won't work, Mommy. It won't work!" I wasn't paying attention and she kept saying it. I finally walked to her room to get her ready for bed and this is what I found.

She forgot that they all went in 2 drawers not just 1. She had tried really hard and had them all picked up. I just opened the other drawer that was empty right beside it and she started giggling and said, "Oh!" I took the picture with my iPhone and it was pretty dark in there.
