Happy Birthday Gracie Girl!!

Today was my daughter's 10th birthday! We had a great day. First we went to assemble with the Body at the Hebert home. Our discussion was so rich in revelation (that is for another day...maybe tomorrow). Grace came with a word out of Proverbs 8 verse 8 & 9 where it says:
The prudent understand where they are going, but fools deceive themselves. Fools make fun of guilt, but the godly acknowledge it and seek reconciliation.
She said that those who are prudent or love God know where they are going because God leads them and tells them which way to go, but those that are fools listen to lies and "think" they know where they are going. They deceive themselves. Also, that fools make fun of guilt or conviction. They know they are wrong, but will brush it off and ignore it. Whereas the godly will acknowledge the guilt, repent and seek after being right with God. I love the fact that my 10 year old loves the Word and will ask questions and seek after understanding. I will protect that and fan the flame of that desire as long as I have her in my home. We took her to dinner tonight at Longhorn. They sang to her which made her smile so big. We had a great day with our little Grace.

This is the day the Lord has made...I WILL rejoice!

God is so Faithful. Even in the midst of hard times He is right there. I love where it say's He will NEVER leave or forsake you and He IS our help in time of NEED. He has honored that more than one time in our life. This weekend was so good. We had the youth over on Friday night and Miss Lauren Jackson shared from her heart. The kids all listened and it seemed to spark something in them. They started passing numbers around to keep in touch and build relationships. Saturday we had ball games all morning and then I took the boys swimming and Grace went to hang out with Ashley. Sunday was a day of high expectation. We assembled at the Williams home in Albany...that is a small town in Livingston parish. We worshiped to Keith Green who was an awesome man of God that had powerful songs. We talked about the fear of God. Where is it today? So many Christian homes are void of it. Why is that? We discussed many things to encourage us in the Word to get our homes in order. It starts there. We MUST teach our kids the fear of God, because it is missing in this generation. We shared a great communion meal of red beans and rice....YUMMY!! That was our weekend. Today is a new day and a start of a great week. I have the choice to rejoice or allow circumstances to dictate my attitude and state of being. I decide to rejoice and Thank Him for His presence and faithfulness. Thank you Lord!
