Dueteronomy 28

Deuteronomy 28:1-68

“And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. ...

So is this going to be a quarterly thing?

You would think so no more than I manage to get to this blog site. Well since the new year lot's of new things going on in my life.l I have a JOB you know! lol said that for the benefit of my friends. Work is going great! I love it. I look forward to serving my community for however many years God allows me too.

Spring has sprung as well. FINALLY! I am looking forward to time fishing with Joey and the kids of course.

As life changes each day I am learning to walk each day ONE DAY AT A TIME. Trying not to move to far ahead and get in front of God. Well for now I am done and will be back soon to update and hopefully this week/weekend.

Hello and HAPPY NEW YEAR! It's 1-1-11 that's too cool. Focus Wanda Focus lol

Here we are the first day of the new year. I pray that you all survived whatever celebrating you did and are safe and well.

As I sit here listening to two of my four grand-kids play and rather rough I might add. I sit knowing that any second one is going to get mad at the other. Why is it that we do that? We just have to do what we know will ultimately be a disaster in the end. I think that's what this new year will be about in most part for me anyways. Making wise or wiser decisions than before. Breaking away from old habits and choices. Stopping and thinking before leaping per say. Oops it happend one is hurt the other is mad. So I asked them, "why do you do things that you know is going to end up in disaster?" I got a blank look of course and a "I don't know".

I think sometimes God sits where I am asking me "Why did you do that". And I know at times I have sat with that same blank stare on my face and the words, "I don't know" come flying out of my mouth. As for me this new year I plan on stopping more, being quiet more, and listening more. It can be exhilarating to be still before the Lord.

Exhilarating definition is causing strong feelings of excitement and happiness. Who would have ever thought that stopping, sitting, listening could = exhilaration!

I pray you will join me in learning to STOP-SIT-LISTEN and we can rejoice together in excitment and share the happiness with all we come in contact with.

2011 is soon to be here..just a few hours to wait

Here I sit on December 31 waiting on the clock to strike midnight ushering in the New Year! Wow where did 2010 go? It was just here and now we are moving into 2011. So much has happened this year and of course some good and some bad. I however choose to dwell upon the good although the bad times brought growth and direction.

2011 what will it hold for us, for me? Well for started I will begin a new part time job as City Secretary for Lake Bridgeport. I am excited about this adventure. It's not about the money but about more about being out of the house and part of our community at the lake. I am looking forward to that.

As well on of my favorite Christian speakers shared something on her blog this week that God used to get my attention. She shared this scripture: “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9

And she then asked this question: "what do you want your life to look like this time next year and what are you willing to do today to step toward that?" WOW! I find myself pondering this as the minutes tick down to the new year.

My wish tonight is that each of you will find the steps you need to take to see your life become what it needs to be for the year 2011. May you have a very happy and safe New Years! From our house to yours God bless you and keep you always!

Thanksgiving 2010

Another year and here we are Thanksgiving Day! Well actually it's tomorrow but as I sit and reflect as we begin the holiday season my heart is full. I am so blessed to be sitting here writing this. God has been so good to our family and to me this year. This does not mean we have not had our battles and our mountains to climb for many of those we have seen come and go. And not one did we lose or not make the summit. God carried us through and is continuing to so to this very moment.

Thanksgiving is not meant to be just one day a year but a lifestyle. Now I didn't pen that I read it somewhere and it just stuck with me. Thanksgiving is something God tells us to do "in everything". I have to be honest and say that there have been many times including this week that I have not felt like giving thanks. Do you every get tired of being attacked or put down, accused and cussed? Hmmm sounds like what Jesus went through and what greater example I have to finish the race than the one JESUS set for me. Reason to be THANKFUL! If for no other reason than that I give thanks and praise.

So no matter what you may be going through at this very moment remember that JESUS LOVES YOU and HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU! You have much to be thankful for sometimes we just have to stop-look and remember! Happy Thanksgiving to one and all from my heart to you and to your families!

God Bless Always~

God has not promised sun without rain,
joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God has promised strength for the day,
rest for the labor, light for the way,
grace for the trials, help from above,
unfailing sympathy, undying love.
