Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to wish all my U.S. friends a Happy Thanksgiving. I'm not from the U.S. but I love the idea of getting together with family, friends or church family to share a meal and give thanks for all His blessings. I read a great article this morning by a man I had never heard of before, but it really blessed me and I thought I would share it. I found it as I was reading Kristina's blog. It's a long read but worth it in my opinion. It's called:

"Thanksgiving, Praise & Joy"

There is much to be thankful for that if we were to take the time to list our blessings, we would see how richly blessed we are. I'm thankful that through my blog I have been able to meet and keep in touch with many wonderful people that have been a great blessing to me. Thank you!

How Beautiful....

My husband is good at updating my computer with cool open-source programs. Although it takes me quite some time (hours) to figure them out sometimes it's great when I can finally use them and have fun with them. A lot of times when I take pictures a verse comes to mind... I am so blessed by the beauty of nature that I can't help but think of the One who created it all. I just found a way of adding verses to my pictures so I think I will use it to post verses in the future...

God bless...

Thank You!

I just wanted to thank all of you who have prayed for my cousin. I don't have any news on how they are doing, but I believe that we can thank God for what He is doing through your prayers. I have been really touched by you all and so has my family.

Well, that's it for now... I've been kind of busy as I have recently started going to school to learn French and haven't found a lot of time to post, but I will see if I can take some time to post some more pictures and thoughts soon. Hope you enjoy the little Lavender field picture I took in the summer...

Blessings -

Praying for Francisco...

Dear Friend,
Just a request in case you might read this post. I have a cousin in Colombia who was in a terrible car accident. 5 were in the car; three young men and two girls. The girls passed away. One young man is in a comma, the other one seems to be well except for injuries to his legs, my cousin is conscious, slowly remembering people and things, and needs to be operated because of his injuries. Just as they and their families need prayer, so too many more people I know and you know need prayer.

I know that sometimes we don't want to pray because we don't know what to say, or we think God is angry with us, or we think He doesn't listen, or we don't feel like it, or we don't think we are worthy, or maybe you don't even believe in God... let's put ourselves, our feelings, our fears, thoughts and or anger aside... let's not think about ourselves for a moment, but remember people we know that need prayer. It could be your mom, or dad... your children, your friends... Let's be loving and bring them before the Lord... it is not only good for them, but it is also bringing us before the Lord and touching our hearts.

Could you please pray for my cousin if you feel led to? Or could you please pray for those you know are in need of prayer? Could you please just take some time alone with the Lord, on your knees and bring it all before the Lord? Could you please let me know if you need prayer too?
