Make sure you leave your blessings from this week. I wonder if by saying Works of God you feel it has to be huge? Nope! Anything God does in your life is awesome and I’d love to hear it.

I’m going to add my Works of God right now, because tomorrow I’m going to hit the ground running so I can get to my retreat.

1. The retreat–I was given money that nearly equaled the cost of the retreat. Then my Titus 2 friend gave me money for gas to drive there.

2. A family at church offered to care for James so I could go. He will stay with them tomorrow and Friday and then my brother and his new wife will come up and stay with him until I get home.

3. In the last week, I was sent 2 Amazon gift certificates. To those of you who sent them thank you. I want you to know that as a homeschool mom, I could always put that to use. But this past week, I’ve been praying that God would provide a way for me to get some Christmas presents for James and my family. You have greatly helped and I thank you for being a part of my answer to prayer.

4. I am feeling better this week!

5. Each of you that leaves a comment or sends an email are wonderful blessings. Your kind words, prayers, thoughts, and Scriptures you share are a wonderful Work of God in my life.

Please do pray for me. I have a hard time leaving James. I am very confident with the care he will receive. I just worry (sin!) that if something happens to me he will have no parent to be with him. Please pray for me to have peace about this and also for my blessing car to behave itself!

Make sure you enter my give a way and I won’t be moderating comments from Thur. morning until I get home on Saturday**

    My husband and I Thank God for the many people who are praying and helped our daughter and grandson as they move from one coast of our great country to the other coast. Several groups of ladies and several churches praying for their safety. God hears each an every prayer. Many of you don’t know C & M but please pray for them anyway. They should arrive sometime on Saturday. God will protect and provide for them when they get there. THANK YOU all for praying!!!!!

    I’d be back to put a link in the carnival. I just want to say enjoy the retreat – James will be fine 🙂

    THANK YOU all for praying for C & M’s safe arrival on the other coast as they moved. They called last night and had arrived 8:00 the local time. No flat tires, no car trouble C forgot her gas cap in Oklahoma but that is small.

    Happy Birthday!
    Didn’t have time to write a post — but today, I was putting away a jillion tables from the school book fair, while Jehu was at church setting up for the Thanksgiving Banquet tomorrow. As I was breaking down tables, 3 guys from work came by and did a major portion of the work for me — thank God for caring co-workers!

    Wow, God did once again prove Himself real and caring this weekend.

    I had a rough week emotionally, and was particularly down on Wednesday and Thursday. It had to do with my ongoing err on the side of love vs. truth/sound doctrine struggle. In any event, on Wednesday night I begged God tearfully to help me. Earlier in the evening, I had sent a Facebook friend a brief but despairing message about how much I suck as a Christian, and wonder if the whole thing isn’t a farce sometimes. She understands the journey I’m on, and unbeknownst to her I had prayed for God’s encouragement and to help me feel loved. The last line of her response to me was: “But I can tell you without hesitation that He loves you. And so do I.” So before I went to bed that night, God had already responded to me through someone else!

    Saturday, after much musing over how to let go, I was drifting off to sleep when the verse “the wounds from a friend can be trusted: popped into my head. I couldn’t remember where that was in the Bible, but found it was Proverbs 27:6: Proverbs 27:6:

    “Wounds from a friend can be trusted,
    but an enemy multiplies kisses.”

    Again, by quickening this verse to me, God was driving home the point that I need to trust Him (and that He’s the Friend Who sticks closer than a brother).

    Last night, my husband and I had a “watershed” conversation – I had prayed about being able to approach the subject at some time, and settle it in a godly way – the fact that our “shacking up” together before marriage was wrong. After 12 years of marriage, it finally came up in a roundabout way (we are expecting house guests around Thanksgiving and my wanting to put them in separate bedrooms was what prompted it.) Ivo agrees that we will raise our kids to learn from our mistakes – and to wait for marriage. That is a total evidence of the Holy Spirit working in his heart; yes, we sinned in this area. I have long since repented of this sin, but now feel I have closure.

    Lastly, this morning our pastor, who has been preaching out of Joshua, stressed (several times) on the fact that we are important to God as individuals. That He loves as as individuals, and therefore doesn’t give up on us or see us as expendable. Yet another answer to my request to Him for encouragement in this area.

    Sorry so long – should have done a blog entry of my own on this!

    I hope you had a good weekend!
