Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

My prayer today

James 1:1-2 (NIV) "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance."


Our family is going through a *trial*.

My prayer today is to consider it joy. It hurts. But I know that "All things work together for them that love the Lord." Well I DO love the Lord. So I know this will all work out together sometime soon.

I know that "whatsoever satan intends for evil, God will turn to good." I want to focus on seeing the eventual good in this.

I know that "God's mercies are new every morning". I even know they are good every hour. I need Your mercies today Lord. And in an hour, and probably in a minute.

I know that Job was a perfect man, no fault was found in him. God ALLOWED satan to test him. Through the loss of his children, then his livelihood, then his household. Even his wife told him to just "curse God and die". Like Job, I wonder why. But I read God's answer to Job and realize why. That the God that is the creator of the universe, and all that is therein, who formed every living thing, every nonliving thing, hung every moon, star, planet and the sun, who uses the earth as His footstool, He either allowed or dicated this circumstance to fall on us.

My job now is to go through it with my head held high, knowing that "THIS is the day which the LORD has made." THIS day, which hurts, which leaves me broken hearted, which may be the *after* of a *before* we never anticipated. THIS day, when God's mercies are new. THIS day, just like the day Job woke up, prayed and then entered into THIS day.

I may sit in the ashes, but I will not stay there. Because THIS day; "I will rejoice and be glad in it"

THIS day "I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens me."

I will "WAIT upon the Lord to renew my strength, I will mount up with wings as eagles."

I will claim for myself that "I can do ALL. THINGS. through Christ which stregthens me"

I ask for your prayers. And I know God's already answered them.
