It has been 7 years today since I lost my dad. I still find it difficult to look at fall arrangements without thinking of his funeral. I haven’t put any out in my house in years. This picture I took today embodies my thoughts of my dad……………..fall trees and golf. I love you dad.
Prayer October 6, 2008
Well meeting begins at 7:00 am tomorrow. Daylight I haven’t seen in a LONG LONG time. Pray for me. Sign in and let me know you visited me and lifted me up for the first official meeting of the Ambassadors. Help remind me this is a calling I need to answer. Love you girls!!!!!!!
What to say………. October 2, 2008
I’ve been on here every day. I read what all my friends have to say, I miss them when they aren’t here. I love reading their thoughts. I love to pray for them when they ask for prayer. Then I come to write………and…………blank. Nothing seems relative, insightful, witty, worth putting in black and white. It is a good thing I don’t have to write for a living. I would go hungry. I guess that is what they call writer’s block. Communication is not my strong suit. Relationship is not my strong suit. I am much more comfortable in the confines in my own home. But, God calls us to relationship. So, how do you all do that? Corporate worship is a good beginnng, but Sunday School and small groups bring it to a more personal level. My small group keeps me in the Word, keeps me active, keeps me from crawling into my corner and withdrawing. God knows that I have to work hard to step out of my box and talk to people. It really is much easier to fold my arms, tuck my head and walk directly to where I am headed. So to tell you that I accepted an appointment from the Greater Muhl Chamber of Commerce as an Ambassador just scares the beejeebers out of me. Now, I must tell you I am doing the Beth Moore study, Stepping Up. One night last week in the chapter on Psalm 122 the study asks, “How is God using your town or city to equip you to be a humble servant?”…..then…….”How is God using you in your town or city?” I didn’t have an answer that night, I left it blank. The next day I got the telephone call from the Chamber. How could I tell them anything other than yes? God is stretching me—–so those of my friends reading this—–I need prayer. Prayer from you, prayer by me, and my personal relationship with God will be all that gets me through stepping out (or up) of my box and being an Ambassador. Whew…..God sure has a sense of humor.
