Saturday Photo Hunt

Theme: Sweet

Song of Solomon 5:16
His mouth is sweetness itself; he is altogether lovely. This is my lover, this my friend.

This is my husband, Michael, sitting with my precious little girl.  I love this picture with his hand resting on her shoulder so lovingly.  It literally just brings tears to my eyes to know that she has a daddy that is going to love and cherish her and bring her up in a way that is Godly.  It is so sweet.

Thursday Thirteen

In light of the Supreme Court ruling today on a racial issue in schools, here are 13 quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, I Have a Dream speech:

1. As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back.

2. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.

3. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.

4. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

5. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.

6. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline.

7. I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

8. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

9. I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

10. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

11. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

12. I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

13. And when this happens, When we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

Wow!  If that doesn’t rouse you, nothing will!  Have a great day and may freedom ring!

Kind and Generous

You know, when you go on a mission trip, at least at my church, you are expected to raise support.  They don’t want you just writing out a big old check from your pocket, but to ask for other’s help.  This way, you can see the hand of God working things out in a way that you would never have dreamed.

Habukkuk 1:5 “Look at the nations and watch—
       and be utterly amazed.
       For I am going to do something in your days
       that you would not believe,
       even if you were told.”

Another thing that happens is that people who are not able to go on trips themselves are able to take part in the ministry all over the world.  What a special blessing it is then to everyone involved!

Well, we have been seeing the hand of God move miraculously over the past few weeks as the support has started to come in.  We now have $2035 of the $3200 we need to raise by our leave date, July 27th.  We have no idea how God is going to provide this money, but we really believe He will. 

Why?  Well, we know his promises are true.  As He is faithful to clothe the flowers in beautiful garments, He will truley clothe His most precious possesions (that’s all of us folks!) in even more beautiful wardrobe.  No, that doesn’t mean I’m going to be wearing a Dolce and Gabana dress or have Jimmy Choo shoes, but He will provide for my every need in abundance and in His time.

I’m really thankful today that I serve this God.  I hope you do too!

Theme: Shiny

This was a bracelet the peanut received for her baby dedication from her Aunt Tammy.  It was so precious!  Unfortunately, it only fit for such a short time she never really got to wear it.  Oh well, it’s a nice keepsake!

Name a funny habit you have.

I am always counting.  I like even numbers.  I am by no means obsessive compulsive, but I count a lot.  I think it originates from when I was young and felt not so control of my life.  It was something I could control.

Soup
If you could instantly know how to play a musical instrument, which one would you pick?

The piano.  It’s a beautiful sound and so useful to know!  I really hope the peanut will want to pick it up.

Salad
How long is your hair?

Too long!  I need a haircut in the worst way!  A bit beyond my shoulders.

Main Course
When was the last time you forgave someone, and who was it?

I can’t think of any specifically.  But, I know in my life at least, there are lots of little hurts that happen.  People say things or do things unconsciously that sting, and you just have to let them go.  Choose your battles wisely I say!

Dessert
What is your favorite kitchen appliance? 

The bag sealer dealy.  I love that thing!  I kept frozen blueberries for nearly a year because of it.  I ate them in my pancakes every Saturday morning and just sealed them up again.  That thing is worth the price!
