This is Me

I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.

Make sure you Make the right friends

We have a real enemy that wants you to walk out of your life alone - without real, deep, lasting fellowship with others! This comes to mind because I am in a new home and city. I haven’t yet made the kind of friends I would call up to go to lunch or shopping. But I am so thankful for my church! Where would I be with out all the encouragement and love I get from everyone there? There is some weekly contact because we share a prayer chain through emails throughout the week.

Because, as Christians when we are walking the road alone, we’re at risk of falling and not having anyone there to grab our hand and help us back up. We’re in danger to our circumstances, temptation and feelings. The enemy loves to take our emotions twist them until we really feel hopeless. Hopeless about our jobs hopeless about our country or our family. What does he have you worrying about so much?

Scripture says that a chord of three strands is not easily broken. We need each other!
(And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart. ... A triple-braided rope is not easily broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:12

Are you pulling back in relationships with Christians when you are offended? Stop holding back on being vulnerable with each other. Stop pretending that every thing is ok - when it is clearly not! Stop judging each other.

Start embracing each other with the same grace that Christ gave to you! Start forgiving. Love others the way Christ loves you! Start Praying for each other Start sharing how God can and will lead you. God leads us all down paths. Some have more rocks and hills than others, that is so we can share and encourage. Your testimony is so important to non-believers, but it is also for believer. When you can share with someone the unmistakable God happenings in your life God will bless you and who ever you have shared it with will get a little deeper understanding of Gods love.

Surround yourselves with people that LOVE LOVE LOVE Jesus! So when you are unsure or when you fall down, someone is there to help you up!

1 Corinthians 1:10
I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought

Philippians. 1:27
Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel

Joel 2:16
Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, Assemble the elders, Gather the children and the nursing infants. Let the bridegroom come out of his room And the bride out of her bridal chamber.
