Somebody's Watching Me...


You know that feeling you get when someone is watching you? Well, I live with that feeling daily because somebody is watching me and following me....Gabriella! She follows me from room to room and cries if I don't wait for her. She asks me over and over again "what are you doing?" or "where are you going?" If I try to sneak into the bathroom and be as inconspicuous as possible by not turning on the light it won't be but 2 seconds before the pitter patter of little feet find me and turn on the light!!!! Alone time?! What a novel idea. LOL! Hmmm....someday but until then I'll try to enjoy that someone who is watching me......

That's a really cute photo! Alex was like that too. He would follow us around everywhere and ask us what we were doing. He would also get stuck on these phrases like " I want bread, I want bread..." That's how I would wake up every morning! I used to tell him if he didn't stop it I would end up in the looney farm! I would get him to sing the ABC's just so I could hear something different! LOL! I feel your pain!

Congratulations on your the four newest little editions to your family! I can't help but smile every time I think of the conversation we had yesterday. We both had a few surprises to share:) It was great to hear how your family has grown and how well everyone is doing. I hope to meet them all someday.
Your friend

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

The Prayer of Sir Francis Drake

I read this a couple months ago on another blog. It moved me and I've had it hanging on my fridge since then. We watched Hotel Rwanda this past weekend and for some reason this prayer kept coming to my mind. I teetered on an emotional roller coaster throughout this movie....anger, sadness, lots of tears, hopelessness, anger again, then hope....1 person can make a huge difference! Our family may not be able to save all the orphans of the world but we can save 1 or 2 or 3. That has made a huge difference in their lives....and ours....especially ours!

Disturb me Lord to see the plight of millions, homeless, starving and fighting for life each day. Disturb me Lord when I complain about my lack when I have NO idea what lack really is! Lord, disturb me, so that I can see past myself and venture forth being Your hands and feet. Help me to dream big dreams only You can bring to pass.
