Gianna is amazing woman with an phenomenal story of hope, courage and forgiveness. I am pro-life but she is the face of the pro-life movement. You hear what a woman is going through what about these innocent babies. She was given saline to abort her at 7 1/2 mos of her mother’s pregnancy but surprise she survived.
I was so saddened when I heard the lawsuits coming in against Eddie Long and his church. I love hearing him preach. He has ministered to me and my family through his TV messages for years. I personally do not believe he did the things he is accused of. My prayers go out to him, his family and his congregation. We should go to prayer instead of rushing to judgement.
Here are some of the remarks he made during his address to his congregation yesterday morning from CNN.
He makes up the 10.4 % unemployment rate from August. This was a really big blow to our family but God has totally provided especially because Unemployment was held up due to a wrong SS# being posted by his former company. All is worked out and we are praying he finds employment soon. I love having him around but a consistent pay check with benefits would be even nicer. God is teaching us so much about being dependent on him. People have showed up at our door step with groceries or mailed us money that we had not expected. His promises are true!
My hubby has done some contract work, we have sold everything we can and I have applied for some part-time jobs.
If you have lost your job or know someone that has, hang on. God is not forsaking you. Keep pressing in. I have to believe things will get better!
I think this is ridiculous especially because IHOP-prayer has been in existence for 10 years why are they suddenly suing now? Here is the news story from CNN.
I actually do not eat at IHOP pancakes because it makes me very ill. I love IHOP-Atlanta it has been a life changing experience for me and my family. We worship there every weekend in Atlanta. There are IHOPs-prayer houses all over the world not just in the USA.
Romans 8:28 will prevail here and now our name is getting out all over the world. It was just us in the IHOP communities that knew about the prayer IHOP but now thanks to pancakes IHOP everyone will know.
My friend posted this on my page and I have to share because it is funny and so true: “It’s hard to confuse the Holy Spirit with the rooty tooty fresh and fruity!”
I stop and give thanks to God for our wonderful country! I also want to thank all of those who have in the past or who are currently serving in our military. You are the reason we celebrate freedom today.
Thank you for you courageous sacrifice and service to our great country!
My Hubby wrote this post on vision and I think it is the best teaching on vision I have ever heard. It is a must read!!
My favorite mommy blogger in the world is Ohmommy. She wrote a fantastic post on sensitive children and I have to share it. My oldest daughter is similar to her son Jay and we used to say she was a drama queen. She used to cry at every little thing. Throw tantrums like no one else and hide behind my legs and cry at parties. As she has grown up, she does not cry as often. She has a lot of friends even though she is always labeled the quiet one. The thing I love about this post is she is not trying to break her son but help him to adjust. She is building character. Boys should be in touch with their feelings. I think our society is a little hesitant about that. It does not mean they should cry at every little thing or whine. My husband is a very passionate person but he does not always share his feelings or thoughts because teachers, family and friends shut him down when he would cry or share something. It is hard sometimes because I would love for him to share things with me. Each child is unique and quirky. I think we should embrace this instead of trying to fit each child into a mold. I know I have dealt with this with my own two daughters. Teachers pointing out all their quirks and flaws as if there is something wrong with them. My oldest daughter can be a drama queen but she can also be quiet and observant. She has been like this since she was a baby. She is the kid that always friends the new kid or the kid no one wants to be around. She is compassionate, sweet and funny. She loves to read and make art. Every year I get the same thing in conferences. Pookie is a delightful child but she is too quiet. Of course, if she was talkative that would not be acceptable either. Peanut is polar opposite of Pookie except in large class settings. The entire school year Peanut was labeled as something was wrong with her. The teacher missed out on an entire year of getting to know peanut because at the end of the year Peanut showed her true self. She tells jokes, she is articulate, she is smart and funny. She is also very loving and yet she was labeled because she was SO shy. They did not take into account she had never been around a large group of kids for four hours without me before. She also was the youngest in her class. Oh and she was 3!
My friend’s son is also a wonderful, compassionate, smart, and funny kid. This teacher missed out on a opportunity to get to know him because he cried too much at first. She did not take into account that he had never been away from mom before or maybe he had a little extra anxiety.
I am so tired of people putting our children into a box or mold or label because they are different. I worked with elementary children and preschoolers. Some had disabilities, some had autism and some were just different but I LOVED all of them!! If we were all made the same how boring would this world be? God delights in our quirks and differences!
My husband wrote this last week and it is a story of encouragement. God can speak through so many people, strangers or loved ones. He can speak to you through a Bible verse or a song. I hope our story will encourage you today as you continue to dream or hope for things to come to pass.
No I am not talking about International House of Pancakes but the International House of Prayer in Atlanta. There are actually International Houses of Prayer all over the world. The House of prayer is phenomenal. It has really brought my husband and I closer to God. Hearing God’s heart and bringing us closer to our calling. The out pouring and the love is amazing. My girls love it too. It is a 24 hour 7 day a week house of prayer. You can get prayer any time of day or you can go to pray. They also hold seminars from time to time. They have worship music as well as revival services on the weekend. I really heard the heart of God last weekend and it has made me realize he really does love us and care about us. He is not just a being that walks around with a big stick. He really does care about you, me and the entire world. I love being in his presence and talking about the things of God with my husband. It has just been a healing and learning time for us. Hundreds of people have been healed and delivered through these revival meetings. I LOVE IT!
