53 weeks & 5 days of blogging...

...This blog has existed that long! I do enjoy it (even if you don't :)) & I think we should celebrate in some way but everyone does that,( giveaways when their blog is a certain age etc. :)) ... So maybe we will wait until sometime when nobody is expecting anything and then we will have a little surprise! Don't we all like that? alot?       But to admit, I am a little curious as to who all is reading my blog, the stats show that alot of people read it every day so I think that perhaps some of you read it & never comment & that's fine if you don't want to, (I hate feeling obligated to comment on someones blog) but in case you want to comment, now is the time to make yourself known.   In your comment please say your first name, where you're from, how you found/heard about this blog, and for curious me, which is your favorite of the following:  coffee, chocolate, peanut butter, ice cream, gummy bears or raisins.

The happy things in life...

Last night was amazing! While we were eating our supper it was raining such a nice, refreshing rain outside. Afterward the sun came out for a little & there was such a brilliant double rainbow. So we decided to go on a little walk down the road, it was still thundering quietly & raining ever so softly & it made me think of this song;   

Word of God speak                                                
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That Your in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness  

It was so what I was needing, to be reminded of God's presence all over again. A rainbow is such a promise of His faithfulness, justice, & peace.             

Today I got a CD in the mail from my sister, it was one that I loved & she decided to get it for me,  it was supposed to be a surprise but I had a pretty good idea that it was coming (thanks to Amazon's history:)  I have already listened to it about 5 times total! (this is what I do w/ new music:)

To day was my younger sister's birthday, she is now 14 & I am 15 which seems kinda funny 'cause just a few short years ago we were lots younger & weren't involved in all the "girl conversations" etc. *tee-hee*

Here is a quote that has inspired me to thinking lately:

Am I fully prepared to allow God to grip me by His power and do a work in me that is truly worthy of Himself? Sanctification is not my idea of what I want God to do for me - sanctification is God's idea of what He wants to do for me. But He has to get me into the state of mind and spirit where I will allow Him to sanctify me completely, whatever the cost
-Oswald Chambers
This is my desire, that I would be like pliable clay. that I would allow God to sanctify me, mold me , & use me for whatever He plans.
