I feel like I have been out of the bloggyland loop this week! Thank you for your precious comments about my uncle. I do appreciate them all. :) I subbed 3 days as well and ran around delivering cross country t-shirts also! They are done, praise the Lord! So, not much computer time. I plan on visiting blogs and catching up this holiday weekend. I promise!
I told y'all a week or so ago that I had some exciting news to share! I do! I promised! Last year, I had the wonderful opportunity to take an online Bible Study with Lelia. It was Behind Those Eyes by Lisa Whittle. Wonderful truths! Well, Lisa is going to be coming to our church next Saturday...one week from today!! I am so excited that I can't stand it! Our Women's Ministry, Growing in Grace, will have brunch for the ladies of our church and community. Then, Lisa will be our guest speaker! I wish that all of you could hop on a plane or in a car and join us! I would love that!! Of course, I'd have you helping me with the breakfast casseroles and muffins! Yes, you would be put to work! But you would not be alone--promise! I'll take pictures and share them the following week.
I would so appreciate your prayers for Lisa and her family, our church, and for the hearts of the ladies God is encouraging to attend. I can't wait to see how He speaks to us through Lisa. Thank you all so much! Seriously, if you are near Mauldin, SC and want to come, give me a holler! I'll save you a ticket--I promise!
I hope that you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I am going to use part of this weekend to get a little organized. Ever since school started, I have not been very focused, and my house and crafts have been neglected(not my family though!). I am working on those beautiful crosses that I showed you all a few weeks ago. I'll show them to you real soon...promise!
I looked up "promise" in the Bible, and I found so many wonderful references. In Psalm 119:162, David says that he will "...rejoice in Your promise....". We know that when God promises something to us, He is a God of Truth. He will honor that promise. I loved this as well in 2 Peter 3:9, " The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise as some undertstand slowness." His timing is different from ours, but His promises are always kept. He delivers! What an awesome God we have!
