new season

Today is my last day working in an office (well at least for awhile). I will begin my new season as a part-time nanny and working at Williams-Sonoma. Once again the Lord provided, and of course I questioned that he would... so silly... he promises he will provide our every need. Last night in Community Group (bible study) we prayed this prayer together:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.

The Lord's will WILL be done in your life today, praise Him for that and let that comfort you on this Halloween day!

Live, Laugh, "LOVE"

Here is a glimpse of the sweet Love's who have enlightened my eyes in Texas. God has used them to embrace my New life in Dallas, TX. Caroline, Noah, and Jack have brought so much Joy into my life during my first month in Dallas. God really provided what I needed - to Live, Laugh, and to "LOVE".

“To the Christian it should be great joy, by means of the harvest, to receive an assurance of God's faithfulness. The Lord has promised that seed-time and harvest, summer and winter, shall never cease; and when you see the loaded wain carrying in the crop you may say to yourself, "God is true to his promise. Despite the dreary winter and the damp spring, autumn has come with its golden grain." Depend upon it, that as the Lord keeps this promise he will keep all the rest. All his promises are yea and amen in Christ Jesus: if he keeps his covenant to the earth, much more will he keep his covenant with his own people, whom he hath loved with an everlasting love. Go, Christian, to the mercy seat with the promise on your lip and plead it. Be assured it is not a dead letter. Let not unbelief cause you to stammer when you mention the promise before the throne, but say it boldly—"Fulfill this word unto thy servant on which thou hast caused me to hope." Shame upon us that we so little believe our God. The world is full of proofs of his goodness. Every rising sun, every falling shower, every revolving season certifies his faithfulness. Wherefore do we doubt him? If we never doubt him till we have cause for it we shall never know distrust again. Encouraged by the return of harvest, let us resolve in the strength of the Spirit of God that we will not waver, but will believe in the divine word and rejoice in it.” – Charles Spurgeon
