Friday, Saturday, Sunday

*Friday morning, I met with a friend for coffee.
(I haven't seen her for a few months. 
It wasn't until we were back in our cars that we realized we had been talking for THREE HOURS! 
Woops...Only, not really.)

*Driving through farm land by myself means I can play the music as loud as I like....I definitely did! 

 *Behind the scenes of baseball...Oxyclean at work.
*All ready for a cook out. 
*Italian Soda Time
* The start of something beautiful.

*One of the first tulips. 

*I'm confident it's only going to get prettier!

 *At church meeting on Sunday morning, there was  guest speaker who talked about discipleship. I have to say that I LOVE seeing people become passionate about making their life count.
To sit and listen to a man talk for over 30 minutes about taking time to share Christ life-on-life with other individuals is awesome. 

*Watched "The Music Never Stopped". Yes, I cried....Even after it was over I couldn't shake it. 

Posing with my sister...Sorry about the shadows. 

Scripture for the Week
Luke 8:22 -25
2One day He [Jesus]  got into a boat with His disciples, and He said to them, “Let us go across to the other side of the lake.” So they set out, 23 and as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water and were in danger. 24 And they went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And He awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves, and they ceased, and there was a calm. 25 He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that He commands even winds and water, and they obey Him?”

My friend and I talked about this Scripture when we were together...These men were guilty of unbelief not because they were afraid, but mainly because they were afraid IN SPITE of what Jesus had JUST told them. Go back to verse 22 - Jesus SAID they were going to the other side of the lake. When the storm came, their fear showed that they didn't believe Him. 

How often do I walk around in unbelief? I'm going to be made to be more like Christ. I'm going to make it to heaven to be with Him forever. Whatever happens on this earth is BEST and for my good. When I am anxious or worried or just plain upset at the way things are going, I'm showing that I don't believe Him. 


  1. I've seen the trailer for The Music Never Stopped and it sounds so fascinating! I'm always fascinated with music therapy, and feel like I get a taste of it when I can help change my student's lives through music! I love your observation about the disciples' unbelief--we have the whole Bible, so do I have any excuse? Nope!

  2. Those flowers are so pretty!! Thanks for the true words. I needed to read that today. I love the last sentence.."When I am anxious or worried or just plain upset at the way things are going, I'm showing that I don't believe Him". Knocked me to my knees!


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
