Time to Rearrange

Typically, when I get a little stressed/nervous/excited/anticipatory, I like to rearrange the furniture. Something about change I can control.....Weird, I know - I blame my mother. Since all of the above emotions apply right now, I started feeling the need to create a little change. Well, since I think Kyle would FREAK OUT if I actually rearranged the furniture again, I decided to remodel the blog. What do you think?

I want to THANK all of YOU who committed to pray for our family and the upcoming trip to Xalapa, Mexico. Today was a wonderful day of fasting and prayer for both Kyle and I. The Lord really encouraged us is multiple, tangible ways today. Your e-mails, phone calls, text messages, Facebook messages, and comments lifted us up more than words can express, we are so grateful! Please continue to pray for our family, NEXT Worldwide Missions, and specifically the upcoming campaign to Xalapa, Mexico.

Something to look forward to...a friend of mine, Deminy, had a great idea that I am going to steal! She is weekly posting her family and friend's prayer needs and asking anyone to leave comments with any additional prayer requests that she can be lifting up on their behalf. She's calling it, "Prayerful Mondays." I LOVED the idea and am going to do the same. Be looking for it starting this Monday. Click here to read the original idea post from the Highley Blog!

Before I close the computer for the night (morning) I want to leave you with a verse and a quote that have both really lifted me up today.

  • 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (ESV) "So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal."
  • From the LPM blog on Saturday: God's School of Faith
From the March 7 entry in Streams in the Desert by L.B. Cowman:
"There is no way to learn of faith except through trials. They are God's school of faith, and it is much better for us to learn to trust Him than to live a life of enjoyment. And once the lesson of faith has been learned, it is an everlasting possession and an eternal fortune gained. Yet without trust in God, even great riches will leave us in poverty."
