I’m still working on 12 Extraordinary Women by John MacArthur. Yesterday, I was reading the chapter on Anna. It spoke of her prayers and fasting. Then John MacArthur says, “Abstaining from food per se has no mystical effect on anything spiritual. But fasting with prayer reveals a heart so consumed with praying, and so eager […]

Answered Prayer

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

This morning when we started school, James and I prayed. I asked God for something to sell on Etsy or Ebay. I spent most of the day battling a nasty headache–a by product of my old neck injury. While I was trying to rid myself of the headache, a treasury I was in on Etsy […]

God Refused Her Request~repost

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

Today on Haven, the program was on Ruth Bell Graham. I did not really know much about her. I do admire how she supported her husband’s ministry. They shared some talks she gave to women. One thing she said gave me chills. She was talking about St Augustine (whom I also don’t know much about!). […]

Prayers for James

Monday, January 26th, 2009

At night, I check on James before I go to bed. I rub his little head and pray for him. I pray that God will fill all the lonely places in his heart. I pray that this won’t ruin him. I pray that he will grow up and be a godly man and have a […]

Prayer Requests, God’s Provision, London, & Mustard?!

Monday, January 5th, 2009

How’s that for a title (hee hee!) When I was a teenager, my mother had me clean and organize the spice cupboard. I found an old tin of white mustard that we NEVER used. (It didn’t quite look like this tin, but you get the idea.) I had a pile of things to toss out […]

Last night, I was working on a Bible study I started long ago. I was doing Kay Arthur’s Finding Hope When Life Seems Dark quite awhile ago, but set it aside for other studies. I was reading Hosea last night to work on the study some more. A few of the verses had to do […]

Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the One who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference. —Max Lucado

Nowhere else to go…

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

I received a catalog in the mail featuring country decor for the home. It’s right up my alley–although their prices were not. I saw a sampler with a quote by Abraham Lincoln. “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.” This sounds pretty […]

I prayed for Lee when I went to bed last night. Except I prayed for him as Lee! You may remember that’s not his name. If anyone should know his name it should be me right? I giggled when I realized what I had done and decided that God knows who he is no matter […]

Praying about the situation

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

I kept a journal for the years leading up to this incarceration–before I knew that was how God was going to move in our life.I wrote down things I read in the Bible that could apply to Lee. I quickly realized more of the verses applied to ME! (Imagine that!) Several applied to our child […]
