Thanks for asking, Wally!

Wally wanted to know what we were thinking today on his blog! So this is what I shared ๐Ÿ˜

I was thinking today while playing โ€œbaseballโ€ with a big plastic bat and a kick ball with one of our grandsons as I was trying to keep one of our granddaughters from consuming sand from the sandbox while their momma took a well needed nap how blessed I am! How thankful I am -especially in that moment as we were having fun-how thankful I am to KNOW with ALL of my heart, soul and mind that the Lord saved me from suicide so I could know moments such as these!

Those moments God is so gracious and merciful to us even though we donโ€™t deserve it!

HALLELUJAH!!

(Sorry about any run on sentences here ๏ฟผ๐Ÿ˜)

In chains for Christ ๐Ÿ’•

Philippians 1:12-14

12 But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;

13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;

14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

“We often think if life were smooth

We would a better witness be;

But God knows best-the faith midst trials

Can honor him more powerfully.”-Cetas

“Pain can be a platform to share Christ.”~Amen

The devil is a liar…

…don’t listen to him!

He is a liar and walks around looking to shake our faith in our ALMIGHTY GOD AND FATHER!

Stand FIRM in the faith that God has so graciously and mercifully given us ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’•

1 Peter 5:8-9

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

What an excellent thing to know ๐Ÿ’•

Romans 8:12-17

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

My dad…

… was a police officer. I’m so glad he’s not now! The abuse the officers took in New York is ridiculous! I started crying watching it- I had to turn off the news yet again!!

Just spouting off this a.m. ๐Ÿ˜ข
