Trapped and Waiting

Posted in Jobs & Career on Thu, Nov 22 2007 - 06:42 PM

Have you ever been eager to get out of a place or a situation to the point that you almost make yourself miserable?  You can't think about anything else.  You lose all focus except for your desire to "get out".  You pray and pray for the situation to change or for the doors to open to the new place and it just doesn't seem to happen.  I...

Blind Curves and Beautiful Surroundings

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Nov 18 2007 - 06:53 AM

My son plays football and we have All-Star games in North Georgia this weekend.  Yesterday, as we were driving up to the games, I was in awe of the beauty of the changing leaves on the trees.  They were so gorgeous!  I saw the deepest burgundies and reds, bright orange, deep orange, bright yellow and a variety of colors in between.  I thought...

Big Shoes

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Nov 17 2007 - 06:35 AM

Here in the deep south or at least in my "neck of the woods", when someone has a lot of personal problems, we say they have "issues".  Quite a few years ago, the department I worked in seemed to have a lot more people with a lot more "issues" than the norm.  One of the ladies that worked with me would apparently go...

Two Cooks in the Kitchen = Trouble!

Posted in Jobs & Career on Wed, Nov 14 2007 - 07:06 PM

My 15 year old daughter cooked dinner for us tonight.  She picked a recipe out of my Rachel Ray cookbook.  She made her list and I took her to the grocery store.  We bought all the items she needed and after our evening walk she set out to prepare the meal.  She wanted to do it all on her own, but she wanted me to "hang-out" in the...

He Stepped Down from the Cross

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Nov 11 2007 - 03:30 PM

I know that I have already blogged once today but God has really laid it on my heart to put this out here.  The other night I had a vision.  I say it was a vision because it was so clear and memorable--an image etched in my mind.  I woke up in the night and this is what I saw....  I saw myself kneeling at the alter in a church.  I had my face in...

I've just finished reading the book of Joshua.  There is a lot of good stuff in there!  If you have never read it or if its been awhile, I enourage you to read it again and while you are reading look for special messages God has in it just for you! I've gotten a lot of it in the last few days.  One message God has sent to me through Joshua's story ...

I'm Ready for the Walls to Fall!

Posted in Jobs & Career on Fri, Nov 09 2007 - 07:43 PM

March around the city once with all the armed men.  Do this for six days.  Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams' horns in front of the ark.  On the seventh day, march around the city seven times with the priests blowing the trumpets.  When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have all the people give a loud shout then the wall of ...

Prayers Needed

Posted in Jobs & Career on Mon, Nov 05 2007 - 08:26 PM

I don't have any funny stories or inspirational message tonight.  Tonight I just want to ask for your prayers.  I have a few prayer requests.  I feel sad and overwhelmed.  I'm tired and I just want to see a breakthrough.  My prayer requests: *  Unspoken for me personally.  God knows what it is, just please pray that He will give me the answers I...

SIck Cows and Lame Lambs

Posted in Jobs & Career on Fri, Nov 02 2007 - 04:55 PM

When you bring blind animals for sacrafice, is that not wrong?  When you sacrafice crippled or diseased animals is that not wrong?  Try offering them to your governor!  Would he be pleased with you? Would he accept you, says the Lord Almighty.  Yet we implore God to be gracious to us.  With such offerings from your hands, will he accept you? -...

Freedom in the Law

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Oct 27 2007 - 08:28 AM

When I think about "laws", I think about things that are forbidden, restrictions, things you cannot do.  You cannot drive over 65 mph on the Interstate.  You cannot drive on the wrong side of the road.  You cannot use a phrase or slogan that has been copyrighted.  You cannot take something from a store without paying for it.  The list...

The Bottle on the Top Shelf

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Oct 20 2007 - 06:41 AM

Like most people, I do keep some medicine in my cabinet in case I need it.   I  use Ibuprofen and I have some homeopathic remedies available too.  I don't pull out a bottle of medicine everyday.  I don't think about it everyday.  I don't even remember it is there unless someone in the house gets sick--a headache, a fever, a sore throat or major...

The Eyes of Our Heart

Posted in Jobs & Career on Tue, Oct 16 2007 - 06:27 PM

Have you noticed that each and every person lives in their own unique reality?  We all "see" things a different way.  For example, the same painting brings about different emotions and different opinions depending on how the person "sees" it.  Same painting, just different eyes looking at it.We also all see things from 2...

God Smiles

Posted in Jobs & Career on Fri, Oct 05 2007 - 05:30 PM

Have you ever noticed someone's face light up when you greet them with a smile?  Has someone ever made you feel better just because they smiled and seemed genuinely glad to see you? Smiles mean a lot!  God smiled at me at lot yesterday.  I am sure He smiles at me every day.  I just don't take the time to notice.  But yesterday, I noticed and it...

Beauty in the Strangest Things

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Sep 30 2007 - 03:58 PM

We just got back from my father-in-laws house where we spent the day.  He has lots of land out in the country down in south Georgia.  He has a cabin out in the woods behind his house where all the hunters start to gather this time of year.  It is in a quiet, laid back little town.My daughter and I went for a walk and took our digital camera.  She...

Not Qualified

Posted in Jobs & Career on Fri, Sep 28 2007 - 07:46 PM

Often I write about the things God is doing in my life or when a particular verse has really spoken to me.  Today, I don't feel "qualifed" to write at all.I'll whine for a moment.  I've had a couple of bad days.  Some of my old worry habits have kicked it.  I've been very stressed at work.  I've let myself start to feel sad and...

Star Light, Star Bright

Posted in Jobs & Career on Fri, Sep 21 2007 - 07:30 AM

Many people spend their whole lives trying to "fit in", to be like everyone else. Teens and preteens work hard to dress like everyone else, talk like everyone else and go to the same places as everyone else.  They desire to be noticed but not to stand out too much.  Adults do the same type things... They want to drive the same kind of...

A Story and a Song

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Sep 15 2007 - 06:58 AM

I just did something that I would have never thought I could do.  I emailed a local Christian band who is really growing in popularity and asked them if they would look at some lyrics that I wrote for a song.  I want to share the story about how I came to get the nerve to do this: A few days ago I was driving in to work listening to K-LOVE on the...

Before

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Sep 02 2007 - 07:21 PM

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.  Before you were born, I set you apart, says the Lord.  Jeremiah 1:5I was at the mall this weekend.  While my daughter was shopping, my son and I were "people-watching".  We were noticing just how different everyone is..... different walks, different shapes, different mannerisms.   Certainly,...

You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.  Isaiah 55:12Our pastor is preaching a series on "Daring to Dream Again".  As the name implies, the focus is on letting go of all the things that hold you back and daring to...

You will not be disappointed

Posted in Jobs & Career on Thu, Aug 16 2007 - 05:24 PM

I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands.  Those who hope in Me will not be disappointed.  Isaiah 49:15-16 and 23.What beautiful scriptures!  How could Jesus forget us?  He has the scars on His hands and feet from our very sins--a constant reminder that He died so we might live.  What amazing love that is! And as...

Only the Potter knows.....

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Aug 11 2007 - 06:38 PM

Have you ever watched a child play with modeling clay (or play-dough)?  They grab a handful and quickly start working with it--usually mixing up the different colors despite the parents efforts to keep them separate.  They shape it and display their "creations" proudly working diligently.  As adults we may try to guess what the child is...

Don't Say It, Pray It!

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Aug 05 2007 - 02:31 PM

I talk too much sometimes.  Oddly, for the most part, I am a quiet person and was extremely shy until my late teens.  I'm not a person that just randomly and always talks a lot.  I am, however, someone that tries to fix problems, improve situations, prevent bad things from happening and mend broken relationships--especially for people that I care...

Driving Blind

Posted in Jobs & Career on Thu, Aug 02 2007 - 06:43 PM

I have had a a few strange, spiritual dreams recently.  Last night, I dreamed that I was driving a car but I couldn't see.  Everything was pitch black like I had my eyes closed or as though I were totally blind.  Yet, I was driving the car.  I was staying in the correct lane because I could hear and sense the traffic all around me.  I wasn't...

Hurry, I need help. Call 9-9-1 !

Posted in Jobs & Career on Wed, Aug 01 2007 - 07:34 PM

Once when my daughter was little, my husband was about to take her baby brother for a ride on a four-wheeler.  I said, "that scares me, I hope they don't get hurt".  My daughter, about 3 1/2 at the time said, "it's okay Mommy, if they get hurt we will call 9-9-1 ! We have been joking for years now about my daughter not knowing the...
