"Without FAITH it is impossible to please Him." Hebrews11:6 This is my 'verse' for the day today. Webster defines faith as 'confident belief or trust in a person, idea, or thing'. That seems so easy~then we face difficulties~the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, uncertain financial times, just everyday 'stuff'. We have a choice-we can lean on Him and put our faith into action and say-'though He slay me, I will still trust Him' or we can crumble under the pressure. I desire to choose the trust-faith-confidence in Him. Sometimes I choose faith-other times-I fail and seem to have no faith at all! Thankfully, He's there to pick me up and say-'Let's try this again, child!'
I choose faith today!
Thank you, thank you, little sister, for this awesome new background!

Selecting a Blog Name

Well~I've made the plunge into the world of bloggers!!! As I try to think of a really cool name~I'm listening to my pastor speak on Isaiah 62. The subtitle of that chapter reads-The Lord gives Zion a new name! As a follower of Christ this is so exciting! When He returns-my name will no longer be-Deserted or Empty-(which is how I feel somedays-can anyone relate???) But my new name will be The One the Lord Delights In! To think that I am HIS delight is so amazing---Oh that I would live in light of that!!! whew-Ok, that's my sermonette for the day! I am a mom of 4 girls-13(oh my!), 11, 5, and 3. I hope to share my challenges, triumphs, ups, downs and everything in between about this crazy life that I live and love! Besides my wonderful girlies, I have a husband who is absolutely the BEST man a woman could have-He helps me so much around here-I would be lost without him. Anyway, hopefully I will stick with this and have fun in the process...Here we go!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
