ME? You've Got To Be Kidding..




Thank you Carol and Darla for this! It comes at a time when I feel about as useful as a slug! Ever had those days? Today was one of them for me.

I've beat myself up over a missed rhythm last night. (I filled in at the piano last night. I felt like I was in a fight to focus the entire time. I found myself just thinking "Jesus" the whole time.) Today was a long day. While the girls were great and worked extra hard in school, I once again could not focus. My quiet time was interrupted several times and I never got that concentrated prayer time this morning. My day has suffered because of that. Chad and I don't totally agree on a particular thing, and while I've submitted to his authority, I'm really fighting the flesh to try and change his mind. All of this comes at a time when I along with 5 other really special ladies are seeking the Lord's plan for us in a specific thing, a new thing...

Needless to say, I don't feel very worthy of this award right now! Carol and Darla, you have encouraged me so much and I count it an honor that you thought of me. Thank you...


I pass this along to...Kara at Mommy Dot Com. This girl loves Jesus and is just on fire for our Savior. Kara I hope you know how your servant heart inspires me! I love to hear what God is doing in the hearts of those precious ladies you serve each week. It is just powerful!

I don't know about anyone else, but I just need some alone time with my Jesus! That is where I'm headed right now.

See you Tuesday.....

Thank you girl. What an encouragement. I hear you on the slug thing. I am praying for you. I know I say it a lot but God has plans for you! His hand is on you and it brings my heart joy.

I am so blog clueless that I don't know what I am to do next. Do I pass it along? I can't help but think of Angela. I think she's gotten this already. Can I give her another one? You don't have to answer these questions. I am just thinking out loud.

Isn't it sweet to receive such encouragement on a day that your struggling? You ARE special, and your friends sure think so!!

I hope that today is going better for you! And that your spirit is a little more at peace.

Well deserved! I am sure you played beautifully and no one even noticed your missed rhythm (I dont even know what that is and I bet most of the people in your church dont either). It is a funny thing how our time with the Lord influences our whole day. I guess that is why He wants us to give Him the first part of our day so He can determine what He is gonna do with the rest of it. I pray that you and the other ladies will find your answers soon and that the Lord will bless whatever new thing you are trying........

Can I tell you something horrible?
I have a sick child home from school today and I was frustrated that my normal "routine" was out of whack and I actually snapped at him when he wasn't taking his medicine!!!!

RIDICULOUS I was. I quickly prayed for some PMS....please more Spirit. :)

Love,
Fran
