Bold steps

Did you ever try to put your finger on something to just miss the connection totally? Aren't we so glad that God doesn't miss a thing? This week we have been challenged on all sides but we serve an awesome God and know that He is in charge of everything. Knowing this is just what we need to remind ourselves to take bold steps in the Kingdom for His purposes...what are you doing today to walk boldy for Christ?

When we walk with Christ and look to Him in all thing we see He meets us right where we are and takes care of all the little details...this week as we remember what he has done for us challenge yourself to take a look around your world and see what you can do to change your world for Christ.

Some times it makes you think...

Don't you ever think about something and it stops you in your tracks.  Something so profound and so little that you see everyday that it just stops you right there and then?  Somedays we find we stumble through our day and it seems everyone around us stumbles too but then something that was so insignifcant before stops you and you think a moment....and everything you were dealing with before becomes insignifcant and minor in the BIG picture of things.  I love it when the Lord does those things to us and it usually comes through serving someone else in the smallest way...sending a note, baking some goodies to share, a friendly smile and hello, a phone call just to say hello, a pat on the back or even an encouraging word.  Those things help us to reach out in small ways but often make a significant impact on someone elses day and there fore turns around our day too...today was one of those days and the inpact it made on my day just warms my heart.  Thanking the Lord for his blessing today for having me stop and think.........

Happy Birthday Jessica!

Today we celebrated Jessica's 19th Birthday!  Everyone loaded in the car and drove to Shewsbury, MA to meet her and her bosses at Buca di Beppo for a family style Italian dinner.  There was lots of great food --really great food.  The kids did well and we had lots of laughter, smiles and full tummy's!  We are so excited to be able to celebrate this birthday (last year we couldn't all celebrate because she was in MO at school)-it was a real treat to do so!  We love you Jess! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
