"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take."
~~Proverbs 3:5-6~~
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. Jesus is Lord of my life and I strive daily to draw closer to Him. I love being a homemaker---taking care of my family and home. I enjoy couponing, cleaning, and cooking. I love to get the best deal on everything and find that yard sales and thrift stores are the perfect places for that. I have recently felt lead to write a Bible study and have been working on it in my spare time. I truly enjoy leading women's groups as we all seek to grow closer to the Lord. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading about what happens as I strive do all of this.

Give Me Mountain Air

I was invited to go to the mountains with several friends for a weekend away.  I have never done anything like this, but after the last 9 months, I felt I really needed to go.  We are leaving tomorrow morning and I am really looking forward to it.  I think a time of refreshing is exactly what I need.  A time to relax is certainly what I long for.  In preparing for my trip, I have really felt God speak to me directly through His Word.  Several verses have spoken to me lately that I would like to share:

"When life is heavy and hard to take,
   go off by yourself. Enter the silence.
Bow in prayer. Don't ask questions:
   Wait for hope to appear.
Don't run from trouble. Take it full-face.
   The "worst" is never the worst."
Lamentations 3:28-30
"I'm hurt and in pain;
   Give me space for healing, and mountain air."
Psalm 69:29
"I called out your name, O God,
   called from the bottom of the pit.
You listened when I called out, 'Don't shut your ears!
   Get me out of here! Save me!'
You came close when I called out.
   You said, 'It's going to be all right.' "
Lamentations 3:57-58
