Faith Lifts Friday ~ July 27, 2007

Dear Friends,

“Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and Thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.” (Psalm 36:5)

“It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto Thy name, O most High:
“To shew forth Thy loving kindness in the morning, and Thy faithfulness every night.”
(Psalm 92:1-2)

We never know why God has us cross path with the people that he does, or how we might effect their lives or they ours until sometimes much later. As a member of Gods precious children it is our honor to help others, minister to their needs, give grace and share our faith as others will with us.

Being prayer warriors for others, looking to God and not the problem and being a true friend are the keys to a joyous life in the Lord. Jesus has given us such a gift of love it is so wonderful to pass it on in his name.

I have had the joy this past few weeks to share my faith with a new friend to Christ and help her set up her prayer journal which was such an honor. I love doing my daily devotions and prayer journal and going back through the pages later and seeing how God has been there for me everyday of my journey with him. This verse has always been in all my journals and gives me such peace.

“Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” (Joshua 1:9)

Have faith and be blessed in love of the Lord this week and always my friends.

Thank you to Sheryl of Taking the Challenge for Faith Lifts Fridays this is so lovely.

In his endless love,

Life On Cloud Nine with Angel Mama ~ July 27,2007

Dear Friends,

As you go about your days may the Lord be praised.

I would ask for your prayers as my family has had a wonderful opportunity presented to us and we are praying about it.

I am sorry I have been on and off the past few days. I have been helping our children finish up their art projects with friends, cleaning my studio and office...(.Oh bother as Winnie the Pooh would say), and helping a dear friend . For all you moms, grandmas, aunts, parents ( well you get the picture ) you will know what I mean. I so love you all , our "conversations", emails, friendships, posts and life a Mom I have found that I have been so busy lately and my mind on so many things , taking care of my son and helping my friend Mary with her twins yes you know the ones....remember the mall and bathroom incident ,that when someone asks:

"What is your name? " I find my self ready to respond: "My name is Ned ....I don't like my little bed".....yes Dr. Seuss ( good guess)

Or if a friend asks before an art project "Do you have everything"? My answer lets check backpack, where is map? or lets go to our thinking chair ( yes Dora and Blues clues good guess)

Or lately when my friend Mary panics over the twins and moans" what are we going to do?" Lets call the rescue heroes or better yet Christopher Robin will know what to do....

Or when my husband or son asks about the grocery list: I find myself saying don't forget the Oatmeal Ernie and Bert's big shopping trip.

Can you tell we read and collect lots of books in our house ? I am so glad Lauren sent me an adult Christian one to read right now.... By the way my husband and I love Max Lucado , how about you all?

Though I can in real emergencies think clearly. Well at least after a panic call to my husband and realizing that a plumber would cost a fortune ... and that advice of putting medimucil down the toilet would probably not be a good idea. The solution of a toilet tool and a brave teenager would solve the problem of the twins trying to teach army men to swim.

So yes I miss you all , will be by to visit and catch up, appreciate all your friendships will be back to you all. I am also helping get ready for a big charity drive of school supplies, backpacks and suitcases ( those go to foster children who have none ) to kids in need. If you would like to do something similar, this time of year is great to pick up supplies at a low cost. You can see if your local school district, museums , churches etc participate in distribution to the children in need. We are also helping with relay for life , as my friend Bea has a team. We have had pink shirts with wings made up and are Bea's angels.

May you all enjoy your day with the Lord and be blessed with his love today and always.

In his endless love,
