FOR TODAY: October 27, 2008

Outside my window… It has been a very nice fall day!  A slight wind but not cold.  The grass is turning browner and my Cannis are still blooming but beginning to fade.

I am thinking…~That I am not as thankful as I should be for my in laws!

I am thankful… God knows our every weakness; yet sees our potential!

From the Kitchen… I am blessed by all the groceries my MIL brought me from Las Cruces when they came for their visit this weekend.  Meats, lunchmeat, cheese, frozen veggies, Roberto’s Tortillas, Green and Red Chile, Homemade Red Chile, Butter and…..so much more!

I am wearing… My sweat outfit….with my flat slip on sandals. COMFY

I am creating… STILL…………..Little piles everywhere….and I hate that…I really need to QUIT! grrr and I say again GRRR!

I am going… TO GET THINGS DONE!

I am reading… In Isaiah, Bad Girls of the Bible/Love Dare and listening to the New Testament!

I am believing… God for miracles in my life and trying hard to let Him decide what those miracles should be.

I am hearing… Adrian teach a piano lesson………..He is really amazing!  So gentle and such a wonderful teacher!

Around the house…
I have things to do this week: laundry, filing, bills, dishes…and some dusting!

One of my favorite things…
Being with my family……………………………………………………………..

A few plans for the Rest of the Week: Let go and Let GOD!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing:
.

This is a little look inside our Living Room…Yesterday was Amanda’s birthday and I was telling her about our blessing from my hubby’s parents!  They were getting some new furniture so they gave us their “OLD STUFF” HA….does it look old?….NOT at all!  So Amanda said…You should post your new furniture from them!  Great idea…Thanks!  I wasn’t sure how we were going to situate them but for now I like having them next to eachother!  They really look great….don’t you think?  I was gonna get a pic of the other side of the LR but I wanted to show these off in both pics :)

Thanks for stopping by…I pray that you believe in the Promises of God. I enjoy sharing and letting you know what is going on with me.

Simple Woman’s Daybook #9

Author: Aunt_Jen  //  Category: Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY: October 21, 2008

Outside my window… Thunder banging since early this morning…I guess around 7AM!  Finally, at 1PM the rain poured down and I was sad that I hadn’t taken a picture of the Cannis outside my window. Especially since it did work so hard after Fall began (even without the forecasted snow last week) to sprout up through the ground and make it’s beautiful flower.

I am thinking…~What an amazing God we have that knows the thoughts and intents of our heart…even when we can’t even figure ourselves out?

I am thankful…that He does! ~ I’m also thankful that my hubby has really been helping with the budget..well helping me stick to our food envelope for the month!

From the Kitchen… I am making a list to go grocery shopping ….and really wishing Amanda and I could go together :(

I am wearing… A comfy dress, barefoot & very, very sleepy since I was unable to sleep AT ALL last night…I was up on the couch when hubby got up and he freaked out…to say the least :)

I am creating… Little piles everywhere….and I hate that…I really need to QUIT! grrr

I am going… to need so focus harder on getting stuff done this weekincluding picking up all my piles and getting everything put where it belongs..even if it ends up being the trash….HAHAHA

I am reading…Bad Girls of the Bible/Love Dare and in Isaiah.

I am believing… God for miracles in my life and trying hard to let Him decide what those miracles should be.

I am hearing… quiet…well except for my fingers on the keys…hehe

Around the house…
I have things to do this week: laundry, filing, bills, dishes…thankful I already vaccuumed did some laundry and cleaned up the bathroom, livingroom, bedroom, and music room!

One of my favorite things…
Having time to sit and think…enjoying God, enjoying life!

A few plans for the Rest of the Week: Let go and Let GOD!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing:
.

Just like my statement above…Let Go and Let God…  These Cannis must do just that!  They must depend on God as their source and understand that whatever God decides is what they need at the time..is what they shall receive.  I long to have faith like that.  In the first picture I made sure I showed not only the flowers that are blooming today but also the ones that were blooming a few weeks ago, that are now dead.  I thought the other day, some of the plants that bloomed were part of the stalk that was planted to begin with a long bulb that I had to make sure didn’t lean and fall over.  I made sure it was rooted properly, but these Cannis that are budding now aren’t from the original bulb they grew all the way from under the ground.  I believe that is what is making them so strong and able to still be blooming in the latter part of October.  When we live through adversity it can make us very strong, but if all we do is complain all the time and get mad at God for not allowing us to have it our way.  Later on when we need to be strong we find we are still weak and need milk instead of the meat God had planned for us.

I hope this wasn’t to much of a ramble….It sure helped me sort some things out….blessings in HIM!

Thanks for stopping by…I pray that you believe in the Promises of God. I enjoy sharing and letting you know what is going on with me.

Saturday Psalm & Praise ~Who May Ascend~

Author: Aunt_Jen  //  Category: Saturday Psalm & Praise

.

.

As I looked through music tonight a worship song caught my eye that has brought me to my knees many times.  It reminds me of how huge God is and how very small I am.  How able God is and how much He longs for me to trust that he is ABLE!  This song comes from a portion of scripture that describes the awesome  greatness of our God!

.

Psalm 24

1 The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

I wish I could have found this song so you could listen to it…it is beautiful!

Who May Ascend

verse 1

Who may ascend, the hill of the Lord

Who may be found in Your Holy Place

Only those who are clean and pure in their hearts

Can make it to where You are

Chorus

So do what You will, do what You want

We have decided to trust You only

And we want to be whatever You’re wanting

You are the Lord of our lives

verse 2

Who may ascend, the hill of the Lord

Who may be found in Your Holy Place

Only those who refuse to lift up their hearts

To anything else but You…

Bridge *(my favorite part)

Lord not my will but Your will, let this be my cry (4x’s)

Recently, I have been looking at things without full trusting God as my source.  Sometimes we think we are the source or our spouse, our family, our church, our friends….when there is NO OTHER source but the One true God!  He has created this earth and the fullness thereof…we are part of that fullness!  How silly for us to think that Almighty God is not in total control of His own creation.  Therefore,  I shall lift up my head unto the Lord and trust Him with all my heart for everything I have need of….He knows it all anyway!

Blessings in Him,

Simple Woman’s Daybook #7

Author: Aunt_Jen  //  Category: Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY: October 7, 2008 Tuesday…still better late than never :)

Outside my window… My pretty Cannis are dying off :( I saw the grass beginning to look brown and the trees are losing their leaves!

I am thinking…~my tiredness is most likely from a lack of exercise more than a lack of sleep.

I am thankful…that God always has plans that are to prosper us and not to harm us!

From the Kitchen… I am so blessed to have some fresh vegetables from a man at another church we visited on Sunday night. I’m in awe of God’s creativity on how to help me with my dieting…

I am wearing…my sweat outfit getting ready for bed!

I am creating…a mess LOL!

I am going… to get back on my schedule for cleaning the house!

I am reading… in Isaiah :)

I am believing… God will make a way for our family to be together very soon.

I am hearing… my playlist from my Facebook wall.

Around the house…
I am working on overflowing laundry and getting my music room in order…a filing system for all our sheet music…..OH BOY!

One of my favorite things…
Hearing about the blessing of the Lord from family and fellow brothers and sisters in Christ!

A few plans for the Rest of the Week: Let go and Let GOD!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing:

Mom and Dave dropped this off at our house on their way to Indiana.  It looks beautiful in my Home Interior room maybe some day I’ll put it in the Living Room, but I don’t feel like moving all my furniture around. I think it fits quite nicely in there right now anyway!

Saturday Psalm & Praise ~ At the Cross ~

Author: Aunt_Jen  //  Category: Saturday Psalm & Praise

.

How do I love thee Lord; let me count the ways.  I cannot bless the Lord enough for his worth.  He is worthy of reverence, honor, glory, praise…I could go on.  Yet in my own selfishness there are times I forgot to do as the scripture says.  

Leviticus 19:2
Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Yeholy: for I the LORD your God am holy.

1 Peter 1:15-16
15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Even though I do not live holy 100% of the time does not mean I’m not striving for it!  I am so thankful there is such a man that did live HOLY 100% of the time when he walked this earth as a man.

2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Thanks be to God that he knew we needed a Saviour!  Each one of us needs Jesus whether we are able to live life and endure the things of this earth; seemingly without a Saviour…we still need him.  We cannot see Heaven without Jesus…he is the only bridge for each of us to see our Heavenly Father.

Romans 3:23-24
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;  24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

At The Cross

by Hillsong

Oh Lord You’ve searched me You know my way
Even when I fail You I know You love me

Your holy presence Surrounding me
In every season I know You love me I know You love me

At the cross I bow my knee where Your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this
You have overcome the grave Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now

You go before me You shield my way
Your hand upholds me I know You love me

You tore the veil You made a way
When You said that it is done

And when the earth fades Falls from my eyes
And You stand before me I know You love me I know You love me

Lord I bow before you at the cross and thank you for your amazing sacrifice for me…for the whole world.
