Faith Puts Me in Awe

I'm linking up with, www.thepinkslippers.blogspot.com today for the Thursday link up of, Give A Piece of Your Heart.
I'm laying in bed, wide awake as usual! As I reflect over my day, I lay here in awe. Much of our lifestyle, missionaries, is lived by faith-or it appears that way! Sadly, there are many times in my life that I lack faith. This morning I woke up hopeful as I knew we had two big bills due. I knew we had money coming our way, so I called our church secretary and asked that she get our deposit made before the cut off. A while later, she texted me to say that it would be only $50. What? That's not enough. Frustration set in. I called my husband who had just left to go into town. What were we going to do? It didn't matter that just the other day we spoke about how we needed to be more willing to live by faith. So, I started praying as I tried to "fix" the situation myself! Then Klayton broke his sunglasses and I started crying as I told him that Mommy didn't have money to buy him new ones. I led my 20 month old over to couch and on my knees I cried out to the Lord. When I opened my eyes, Klayton was kneeling over the couch as well, as if he had been praying. I texted my prayer partner to start praying as well and deep in my heart I was still concerned but yet there was also peace. As day drew to a close, I received another text message from the church secretary. She had made another much larger deposit that would now cover our bills and then some! I was overwhelmed with the goodness of my God!

10 on Tuesday

1. Yesterday I dealt with 2 hours of email frustrations as I tried to send out a mass email advertising my new Scentsy biz.
2. What made me even more frustrated than that!? When I finally had all my addresses fixed, my account became unavailable because I was apparently spamming! I get access back today.
3. Tonight is my Scentsy neighborhood launch party! I'm trying to prepare myself that I might not have any guests. So, why don't you come tonight?!!
4. Today will be spent cleaning, baking chocolate chip cookies and making cherry limeade!
5. I'm currently enjoying the breeze and current temperature of 68...it's supposed to reach 91 and I will then be enjoying the air condition.
6. Klayton woke up with gook in his eye...I will have to keep my eye on it. I'm just hoping its because he slept so hard and for so long last night.
7. With all the things I need to accomplish, I should probably get motivated...
8. Someone stole Klaytons kiddie pool from our back yard! Can you believe that? And it wasn't just one of those cheap plastic ones, it was a blow up one with a sprinkler.
9. This past weekend my parents came for a visit. It was a good time!
10. Whew! Have a Happy Tuesday!

Stamp of Approval?

There's a fine line between right and wrong.
While driving to my grandparents, I found this on display in one of the restrooms. Notice the writing?
While I do agree, I was struck with this thought: "many times as Christians we are sure to stamp our disapproval on something...it may be wrong; but have we handled it with God' stamp of approval? "

P.S. I don't think God had His stamp of approval on how the person who wrote the message dealt with it. You know, because of the vandalism!
