The Power of Prayer

Monday, December 17, 2012

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." Matthew 5: 4 

It is hard to think past all of the heartache and sorrow that so many are feeling right now, following the horrific scenes from Newtown, Connecticut. Seeing the names, ages, and faces of those lives that were lost, makes it sink in a little deeper. It is hard to imagine the pain that families are going through, but we can offer them the most powerful weapon that God has offered us, Prayer. Let's join together and surround this community with prayer and give them hope. Be a light in their darkness.
 
I also wanted to share this; Jamie's post: Newtown as I know it
It is a look into her life as a Newtown resident. It's a beautiful town, not always one known for death and sadness. She wants everyone to see the beauty and love that is in this town.

A little piece of my heart

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Do you ever have those moments where there's so many thoughts and dreams and doubts going on in your head you just don't even know where to start? Well, I don't really know where to start, but today I wanted to share a little piece of my heart and what's been going on in it lately.

I have been thinking about Christmas, and what it means to me.
We have been dreaming about what our little family will look like some day.
I have been doubting my abilities and what I can accomplish.

I have thoughts of my dear Pake (grandpa) who has passed, and I wish my husband could have met him.
I have dreams for my husband to get the job he has been so patiently waiting for.
I have doubts about whether I will be able to have children some day.

I have been thinking about our future and where it will take us.
I have been dreaming about traveling the world.
I have been doubting my choices.

What are your hopes, dreams, fears about your future?

A Wife of Noble Character

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

In seeking God's favor for my life, and specifically my new marriage, I found this proverb very encouraging and hope that I can be a wife of noble character. I am no expert on marriage, or how to be a wife, or a new business owner, so what better standards to live by than God's.


A Proverb to live by: A wife of noble Character 

10“Who can find a wife with a strong character?
She is worth far more than jewels.
11 Her husband trusts her with all his heart,
    and he does not lack anything good.
12 She helps him and never harms him all the days of her life.
13 “She seeks out wool and linen with care
    and works with willing hands." 
 ... 
17 She puts on strength like a belt and goes to work with energy.
...
20 She opens her hands to oppressed people
    and stretches them out to needy people.
...
25 She dresses with strength and nobility,
    and she smiles at the future.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and on her tongue there is tender instruction.
27 She keeps a close eye on the conduct of her family,
    and she does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children and her husband
    stand up and bless her.
In addition, he sings her praises, by saying,
29     ‘Many women have done noble work,
        but you have surpassed them all!’
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty evaporates,
    but a woman who has the fear of the Lord should be praised.
"

Proverbs 31: 10-13, 17, 20, 25-30 {God's Word Translation}
