2014

This was an incredible year for us. We went through chicken pox, head lice( makes me itch just typing that!) in May. surgeries, and losses. Our church went through losses of precious saints who went home to their Lord. We also lost members who left our church due to disagreement with the church leadership and other reasons.
I admit it has been a very tough year for our congregation and it has affected our family deeply. I'm not sure what God has in store for us next as far as church is concerned. What ever He wants like the old hymn  goes My Heart Says Amen to His will.




In September my oldest daughter took a plunge and left home to do missionary work at YWAM Bishop, CA. It hard letting her go but we knew God was and still is looking after her. She plans to do her DTS sometime next year if the Lord allows. Of course these things take lots of money so she is going to do the fundraiser thing and is looking for work to earn money for her cause.
I was excited to actually finish the whole Bible this year and if the Lord wills I will do it again next year. I hope you readers will attempt to read the entire next year.
There are plenty of Bible reading programs to choose from. I chose a program for shirkers and slackers which I found very easy. Here's a link to the program https://www.malone.edu/spiritual-life/biblereader.pdf

Christmas

I really love Christmas but I don't appreciate all the buy everything in site mentality that comes along with it. Worship songs that were meant to be sung to Jesus have become background music in  movies that have nothing to do with our Savior's birth. It's really getting almost blasphemous.


Speaking Christmas, I was listening to some of  my favorite Christmas songs at The Cyberhymnal . I decided to look for hymns about Jesus birth and I found over 700 hymns! I was astonished because many of the songs listed I never even heard before. It's unfortunate that so many of these hymns aren't being sung anymore. I want to challenge you ladies to learn a new Christmas song and sing your heart out! Click on the above link which will take you to my favorite online hymnal.


Happy singing!

Greetings!

I realize I haven't posted since Thanksgiving and I apologize for that. I had outpatient surgery on December 5th and had some setbacks with my recovery. I'm much better now but I don't think I want to have general anesthesia again. Something weird always happens it seems whenever I have it. When you combine the side effects of general anesthesia and the pain meds, well let's just say I was a miserable mess!


Christmas is upon us again and it seems like it was just recently when I posted about Christmas in 2013. It's hard to believe it's almost 2015 already. I often wonder with each new year, is this the year our Lord returns?
Are we ready to meet Him? Are you ready to meet Him?
