Amazing God!

God is always teaching me new things. I have been a Christian for almost 20 years. Wow, has it really been that long? That just doesn't seem possible. What seems more impossible is the longer I'm a Christian, the less I realize I really know about God. He is "indescribable, uncontainable. He placed the stars in the sky and He knows my name"(words from "Indescribable", by Chris Tomlin). He truly is an Amazing God!

We had a business meeting at church last night. For those of you who have been a part of any church congregation, you know how these meetings can be. Our "family updates" are nothing short of enjoyable. I pray they continue to be this way. We have a body of believers who truly desire to "remain at peace with one another (Romans 12:18). I am so thankful for this truth.

Pray for my children, however. They are working hard on me today. Lauren has been whiny from the moment she woke up and I had to put her down for an early nap. I didn't want to completely lose it with her. It's AMAZING how much I knew about parenting before I had children. Now that they are in my midst, I know nada!!! How does that happen?

BTW, our kittens died. They hung on for a couple of days, but we think a tomcat got to them. It was really disappointing. I guess we will get Joey fixed and bring her in. I don't want her to get pregnant again. I think she is still such a young kitty, herself.

Please be in prayer for our youth. We will be heading to Daytona next weekend for Beach Blast. This is a youth evangelism conference where the students will train for beach evangelism. Ergun Caner will be the keynote speaker. He is a former Muslim and his testimony is nothing short of incredible! Click on his name to learn more about him.

Until later....................Melissa

"He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Phil. 1:6 I Need Thee Every Hour was written by a weary mother, Wesley's mother used to pull up her apron over her head and pray...you are not alone but with God all things are possible for those who love Him and keep his commandments. Ah, patience. Neat prayer on the sidebar, going to have to read that through again.
