A Dream is a wish your heart makes...
Last night I think that was true, I had a wonderful dream....Why am I posting this, I do not know. I've been rather daydreamy lately~ Perhaps it's the books I've been reading, don't you hate when your reading a book and you wish you could be in the book. Well I'm like that, I just imagine myself in the book, like I'm on the Missionfield in one fighting the heat, and trying to win little children to the Lord...or I'm being rescued by my Knight in shining Armor... ''Ahhhhh''
Okay enough rambling, Sarah would tell me I seriouslly need to get a life...Sorry~

Today was an Awesome day in ''Awesome'' no I'm not going to California...
But we had lot's of visitors today, and two new little boys in me and Mama's sunday school class, Jared and Taylor...pray they'll come next Sunday, too. The Lord is truly blessing, just to tell those of you I know who have been praying. Oh here's something to add to your prayer list...I have been enlisted to teach Sunday School...Boh...Boh...Bohhhh!!! I have been a helper since I was 13, in children's church, anyone's sunday school class, that's just my ministry.... But a teacher I am not. For some reason Daddy and Mama have been making me step out of my little comfort zone lately. I have started my own Bank account, oooo I know.... ummm cooking more.... and now this, Teaching...ahhh I'm like I can't what if I say something totally wrong and confuse the little kids, or even worse what if one of the smart ones ask me some smartical question?????
Well of course, they know just what to say....''What if one day your husband starts a church and you are the only one who can teach a Sunday school class?'' They just love to take my dreams and use them againest me. lol
So I will be teaching Sunday School next Sunday for the first time in my life...please pray...I will definitely need it!

Well I suppose I will have to be done with this post, Jennifer has to check her email!!!! That is something she does alot...I mean you think after talking to a guy all afternoon, you wouldn't be in such a hurry to read a email...I'm kidding, I suppose if the Lord allows I will be 10 times worse. I mean you think about it, how wonderful would it be to know with peace in your heart that God had personally given you such a blessing. I mean with out a doubt, you know that you were brought together by God himself!!!! I hope that that dream of mine will one day come true...No matter how your heart is dreaming if you keep on believing...a dream that you wish..or (pray)...will come true~

4 correction 5 Months To Go!!!!

Today my Sister Katie informed me that today, starts the count down to the Sword of the Lord Conference...5 months away!!! Can you believe it? hehe
I do believe Katie is getting worse than me, with the counting down of days...I love to count the days too, but I don't usually start as early~ But since she reminded me I thought I'd post some pictures of last year at the Sword. Bro.Shelton Smith said last year was going to be the best Sword ever, and I can honestly say it was! The preaching seemed to be just for me, the singing was soooo good, the spirit of the service was great. Last year the Lord also put Jennifer and Jonathan together, the Lord really used the Sword conference to bring them together...and it was just a wonderful week. I guess I'm as bad as Katie, I can't wait till the 2010 Sword Conference,too!!!!

I love to hear Bro.Bobby preach, last year we were able to hear him at the Sword, and we were able to have him come for our revival. I enjoyed it!!!

I always enjoy Bro.Lou Rossi...and I always get interesting pictures of him~

This was a surprise...Bro.Lonnie Moore, Bro.Terry Lawson, and ...Bro.Joe Arthor...hehe Donnie said he started to go up and sing with them, that would have been funny!

Bro.David Chamberlain, playing for the Sword..I wish I could play like that!

The Gospel Light Choir....

Ben, Tim, Donnie, Rachael, and Sarah came on the last night...

My family...we love the Sword Conference!!!!

''What Happened to Sarah's Finger???''

I recently had a distressed comment from one of my follower's that was deeply concerned about the picture of Sarah...''What happened to Sarah's finger?''
Well I thought I'd tell the story of how this dramatic thing came to pass.
Now I can't tell it as well as Sarah, seeing as I was not an eye witness...and I can't tell it like Molly for she has her own special version of the story...soooo I'll only tell what I got from both versions.
A couple of weeks ago,when the wind was especially fierce....something we are not really used to in the south. Sarah was running at school, Sarah is a true lady and hardly ever runs, but on this windy day she was so cold and couldn't bear the wind. As she was running..(from Molly's version) the wind knocked her off her feet, she tried to catch her self....but the wind was so strong that she fell!! Landing right on her little finger....being the modest girl she is, she quickly straightened herself up...for people were coming out of class. It hurt so bad, she cried a little... But she thought that it might have just been hurt, But to her surprise...It was Cracked!!!!!!
And that is what happened to Sarah's finger...It is almost healed now..but She thinks it's crooked..don't worry Sarah, you won't be the only one in the family. Sarah is the first of all us kids to actually break something...I think Donnie was a little jealous.
Hope you enjoyed this post, Brooke....I can't believe I just did an entire post on Sarah's Finger.....hhmmm Who Knows what I will post about next???!!!!~

I had been praying for a lady to come back to our church this weekend, and a little girl... and this morning the Lord answered those prayers...and the lady's son came too!!!!I was so excited!!!We really had an amazing day today, the Lord has just been really blessing and answering prayers lately, Praise His Name!Well here's the pictures I promised~

What is Impossible with God?

I love this scene, I think I've said that before...But I just love to see how God blessed and answered prayer at the end. It just shows how God loves us so much, and how when we have faith... He really does answer prayer! I've seen some of those prayers answered the past couple of days, and I'm going to keep praying...Because I know that nothing is impossible with God!
Just remember that God will bless when you have faith and do His will~*
Keep the Faith and Have a Wonderful Night!

In God's Hand

In God's Hands, I'm in Good hands
My Soul is Safe and Secure
In God's hands, Sweet Assurance
It's Good to know I'm in God's hands
Sometimes it seems a Trial lasts too long,
It's scarcly past and I must face another one,
And when I've done the very best I can,
It's time to leave it in God's hands
I love this song, I've been singing it alot lately. It is so Good to know I'm in God's hands, and He's going to take care of me. Could you imagine Life out of the safty of His Hands? So many times we change and turn, but God doesn't, He's still holding firm...He still holds us safe in His hands. If I can only learn to just trust in that, trust that He has it all under control, I mean with all He has already done for us...why is it so hard to trust?
