So sentimental these days ...

or just plain weepy. Call it what you will, but man oh man. I just want to cry over every little thing.

Okay, first of all I am so in love with my Lord right now. His word never ceases to amaze me. I am so grateful that He has given me understanding to read His word.

Second, I watched this documentary . Very moving, and beautiful in a way only Christ can make things beautiful. The grace that oozes from the wives is breathtaking. They are grieving the loss of their husbands to brutal deaths, yet they are proud for their husbands for dying for Christ as Christ died for them. And their children ... oh, the children, so sweet. I bought the video so that I could pass it around. Let me know if you want to watch it.

And, check out VOM is a great ministry and I believe it's important to know what is going on with our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world. Persecution is very much alive and well. These believers need prayer, and their stories are powerful.

Third, I love studying God's word. As much as I hate to admit it I need accountability in studying it. I get lazy with it so easily so I am grateful for the ladies who study with me each week and provide the accountability I need. As much as I love it I am still so lazy with doing it, but I really do love it.

God is so real and so powerful and amazing and reveals Himself to me in ways like never before when I am in His word. And, studying the truths for myself allows me to hide them in my heart to draw on. I am so grateful for His grace in my life. I fear where I would be without Him.

Also, I have a new niece Daisy LouAnn. She is beautiful and I can't wait to get my hands on her. She's in TN though. We need to plan when we can get down there. It's amazing how much you can love a little person when you haven't even met them yet.

I mean how could you not just fall in love with that little peanut? ... (sigh)

Before we talked today as I was driving home from work, I was thinking about you & the Bible study & I don't know, what a gift you have doing this Bible study. It is just really neat to be apart of it & see how God is changing your life! And the excitement that just is exuding from you when we do talk about His word. I was pondering all the on the way home...and then to have our conversation that we it. Challenges me daily!

Thank you dear friend. I am so thankful for my friends that I can fellowship in the Lord with :)

Susan, I dreamed that you guys came up for a surprise visit. I was shocked and thrilled and you became an even bigger hero to me for traveling so soon after giving birth. Soooooo, how 'bout it? It's only fair being that you don't have children in school yet and are no longer working. Don't you want to be an even bigger hero in my eyes?? ;)

In all seriousness, tell Daisy to not grow up too quickly because we may not be able to come down until after school is out.
