New Year's Prayer and verse for 2012!

scripture pictures

I am not making resolutions this year as I usually just end up breaking them. This year I asked God for a verse and this is the verse He gave me. My prayer for 2012 is that I will get my heart and spirit right with God with God's help.
I know if I have a clean heart, a heart focused on God and a right spirit with Him, then the rest of my life will be in better order too. So this year I am going to focus more on God and prayerfully have a better year!
Praying God will be #1 in your 2012 and it will be the best year yet for you!
God bless,

Wonderful Bible Study! Check it out!

Psst! Have You Heard About HER?
     How many times have you heard someone say those words in reference to another person? Maybe the "HER" that's being referred to happens to be you. This "HER" that I'm talking about refers to me, you and the woman next door.I'm inviting you to join me and many other women to an online Bible study about "HER." A friend paid for me to do this bible study starting in January!  I am so excited and thought you might want to check it out too.

Stressed or blessed?

I will be the first to tell you I am blessed.  I have always been taught to be a blessing and receive a blessing.  Now this does NOT mean you can do something for someone and just set back and say, "okay, now Jesus, where is my blessing?" It doesn't work that way.  I try to find a way each day to find someone to be a blessing to.  If you look, you will find them.  Don't forget those in your own home, they need blessings too.
     However, the last few days and weeks, I have felt a little overwhelmed and stressed out.  We have had lots of doctor appointments, Stephen's surgery, preparing for Christmas programs at church, home, life, Moms group, Childrens church, homeschool.  Wow, just typing it makes me tired.  I was getting down in to being so stressed and just knowing I cannot possibly get this all done.  Yet, it all comes together and God just keeps blessing.  This week alone, ladies from our church are providing supper every night so that I can concentrate…

Count Your Blesings!

I know today is December 1st and everyone is off of being thankful and on to Christmas.  I think we should be thankful every day, every week, every month and not just at Thanksgiving.  We are always so blessed.
     I decided for the month of December every day Stephen and I will find someone to be a blessing to in some way expecting nothing in return.  But more than that I want us to count our blessings.  So I decided we would make a blessings jar to count them and on days when we are down we can go back and pull them out and remind our self how blessed we are.  We are making our jar later today so no pictures to share yet. I am sharing  this with you so you could make one for yourself or your family if you want to.  

     First you need a jar, box or some type of jar or container.  I like using a clear jar so you can see the blessings as they grow.  You could paint the lid, cover with paper, cloth, tie a ribbon on it or leave it plain, that is up to you.      Next you might want…
