I stayed ahead of whatever pain there was, and am not even on aspirin or Tylenol today. Thank you, God. I am MOST grateful. My mouth is still somewhat sore - not painful - but it will get better each day. Enuf dental talk!

Friday noon, a sister in Christ and I are driving down to Roanoke, VA for an eWomen's conference. I'm getting really excited. We went a year ago (10 of us from our church last yr), and had a fun, spiritually-uplifting time. I expect the same this year. In addition to New Song, we'll get a concert by Mercy Me. Chondra Pearce will entertain us, too. And there's a goodly list of speakers I'm eager to hear. Please pray for safety for everyone traveling to/from the conference (there were about 10,000 of us last year), and for the Lord to bless all our hearts. I know He has words for each of us; I pray for ears to hear them.

It was overcast all day, and I'm not sure the temp got all the way to 70 degrees, but it was a nice day inspite of the weather. We're expecting rain any time now, and torrents of it tomorrow - maybe 4 inches. Obviously they've issued a flood watch. Normally that doesn't negatively affect us personally, but you KNOW there are people out there who live in perilous places.

Good night y'all.

God is SO good! I don't have a specific thing to tell, but just that I'm rejoicing that God IS SO GOOD!

Just got home from yet another dental appt. (I think I'm paying for his 5 new computers all by myself). He finished the prep work for a new crown, but had to use a laser because there was 'some tissue' in the way. (Read: gum). I took some medication after leaving his office, so am hoping to stay ahead of the pain. He also slightly burned the inside of my cheek w/the laser!! I'm such a mouth-pain sissy. The reason it took over 1-1/2 hrs to do, and why my soft tissue (cheek) hurts so much is because it was a waaaaay back molar and hard to get to. sigh. ok, complaining aside. I'm grateful that he's able to take care of me, and God has provided the $$ to pay for it.

It was still rain-y this morning, but the sun is out (for a day or so) and I'm concentrating on that instead of rain.

Isaiah 46:4 "Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you." NIV

    Yes, God is good and you can rely on that always.

I so hope that you are feeling much better today. Like you, I am also a mouth pain sissy but thankfully I have a wonderful dentist who is very good at what he does and most of the time I worry about nothing.
Take care, my friend.

    Our day here in Central FL is just the opposite. Getting some much needed rain. Doesn't last long though but enough to make it even muggier afterward. emoticon -- Lou

    God gets us through anything if we let Him and He never gives us more than we can handle.

Have a great day.

Fall IS here!

Monday, September 27, 2010

Today is rainy, and only in the mid-60's - a teeny bit cooler than 'normal' for us. But I'm celebrating the fact that we aren't 92 degrees, as we were a few days ago!

I also am thanking God (profusely) for the gentle, steady much-needed rain; much better than last week's violent storms.

A good friend sent me the following quotes some time back, but I don't know to whom I should attribute them.

"Have patience with all things but first with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being."

"You're a perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that."

Have a wonderful day, y'all.

    This is such a nice blog. Thank you for sharing. Love the quotes. And I agree about the rain, we had a very nice much needed rain overnight and continuing through this morning. Have a wonderful day.

Thursday 9/23

Thursday, September 23, 2010

"They" tell us it's fall (or autumn), but someone forgot to tell 'Mother Nature' - it was 90 degrees yesterday and today is supposed to be the same! Our normal average temp this time of year is the mid-70's. We had the AC off for many days, but turned it back on becuz 90 degrees is 90 degrees, and when you factor in the (high) humidty, it feels worse.

We had AWFUL, TERRIBLE thunderstorms yesterday afternoon and evening - giving us much needed rain, but all at once, and the wind damage was bad around about, although not at our house. Praise the Lord! He moved the storms away from us before we went to bed last night.

Have a great evening, y'all

  I love hot weather, but here in Idaho it's a dry hot, which makes a difference! What a wonderful blessing to have air conditioning and heaters in our homes! I think I need a sweater this morning, but I'll be shedding it soon!

I thank God for...

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

In no particular order -

...for the beautiful days we've been having.
...for the rain we're getting - we really needed it
...for my husband, who is so thoughtful
...for my Mother, who led me to salvation in Christ
...for my ability to knit and crochet - and that I've found receipients for those items I make
...for providing the funds we need to pay for all the dental work I'm having done
...for my older sister who oversees Mom's care
...for God Himself - creator, counselor, sustainer, friend who always picks me up, victor over sin and death
...for the FACT that I'm going to Heaven one day

  Hooray for all these things! I'm grateful for all these things also! Except my mom is still healthy and Christ was always in our lives. I sure hope to go to heaven one day! Thanks for sharing!

    We all should be grateful for all of the above. I'm sure everyone could add more without too much thought, but we seem to forget to be thankful while dwelling on what we think we are not getting.

    Praise Yahweh Our Abba Father.
Hebrews 13:15-16
15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his name.

16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

Philippiand 4:13
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me

Life is Good
Yahweh Bless You
