Today is the day!

Oh my! WOW! Is it really today?? It just does not seem bubba is getting married!!! Well...I don't have much time on here, but I just wanted to ask everyone to pray at 2:30 EST for the wedding and for the Bride and Groom!!!

Friday, January 25, 2008's TOMORROW!!!

Can you believe it? The wedding is tomorrow, my big brother is getting married...someone bring tons of tissues!!! LOL We are so excited...we were at the church till one this morning setting things up, and it was no where near done...but it already looked BEAUTIFUL!! So I can only imagine what it is going to look like when it is done.

Today is the rehearsal dinner, and we have a lot of spaghetti and banana cream pie bars to make! But like I said, we are all so so excited about the wedding!

Because of it being the day before the wedding...and I will be gone all day tomorrow...I will not be able to my "Who Said What" this week, but it will return again next week.

We got more snow.

Last Saturday, the day of all those wedding showers that we were having for decided that is was going to snow...and snow. So needless to say there was not that good of a turn out, but we had a blast anyway!!

It is so hard to believe that my brother will be married in 2 day!!! That just totally strikes me as...well...something I am definitely gonna have to get used to. But we are all truly excited for Ronnie and Jessica. Let her know you will be praying for her and Ronnie on Saturday.

Tell them...before it's too late.

A Missionary that we know, Bro. Tilman...who works in Thailand with those that have leprosy, gave this testimony at our home church years ago, and I thought that I would share it with you today.

Bro. Tilman was a captain on a bus route in Atlanta, and one Sunday morning while he was on his route. A bus kid came to him and asked him to tell his sick brother about Jesus, Bro. Tilman looked at his watch, noted that they were going to be late for Sunday school if he did...and told the bus kid that he would tell him when they got back from church. When they got back from church Bro. Tilman took that boy home and went inside with him. When he asked to speak to the sick brother, he was informed that while they were gone at church...the boy had died.

Bro. Tilman lived with the guilt and regret of not going in and telling that sick boy about Jesus, all because he wanted to get to Sunday School on time. He told us at the church that day that he felt like he shut the door to Heaven on that little boy, and that is something that he is going to have to remember for the rest of his life.

Take the time...tell them...before it's too late!!!

Post Number 400!

It took me 3 years to do it...but here it 400!!

Last night we went to Harvest Baptist Tabernacle, where Bro. Joe Arthur is pastor. Some of you may have heard him preach. Last night was so good!! He preached out of John , in verses 1-10 on the miracle of turning the water to wine. The way that he presented it and referred it to us as Christians was just awesome.

The number of vessels used...6- The number of man.
The height or width of the vessels used...6- The number of man.
The water- A type of the Holy Ghost, and of the Word of God.
The Groom- A type of Jesus Christ.

We being the vessels, made of stone, cold and hard...needed the water (the conviction of the Holy Ghost) to be poured into us. So that we could be presented to the Groom...The Lord Jesus Christ.

Of course, it was better last night then when I am trying to explain it, but it was really good.

When we do leave our church in a few months (Lord willing), the Lord has directed us to that church. We have visited there a couple of times on Sunday nights (our afternoon services are at 3:00 pm.) and we have truly been blessed by what we have seen and heard. I would post the church website...but it is under really would do no good to send has no info on it yet. :o)

A Poem

I got the thoughts for this poem after I found out that a very, very close friend of mine that is 17 years old moved out of his parents house. We have known him and his family since he was just 4 or 5. It was really shocking and heart breaking to hear about it. I am hearing a lot about teens that are moving out of their parents home because they want to do their own thing. It is just really sad.

This poem is also written from some testimonies that I have heard from people after they got back home and straightened their lives out. This is really a warning to all teenagers and young people out there to stay right with God and make the right decisions.

One by one they leave the nest
But not by the parents are they blest
They choose to leave and live their life
Without the rules and "parental strife".

"All of it's grand" they will say
But down the road they'll dearly pay
Doing their thing and having their way
But judgments coming any day.

They begin to notice the trouble their in
They cry out to God "You win, you win"
They come back home and get things right
Now relieved from fighting the fight.

Many years later they'll tell you the story
Of leaving home and expecting all glory
Only finding out what an end sin brings
Having the fun and doing those things.

But one thing they always say
A life of sin never does pay
So stay in the home and in the Bible stay strong
That's the way that never goes wrong.

Trust in the Lord.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Those two verses mean a great deal to me, more now than they ever did before. Please don't mis-understand what I am saying. They are precious because they are part of God's Word, but here lately with all the changes and things that we are going through as a family, and some things with me personally...those two verses have just taken on a greater meaning for me.

As I said a couple of posts ago, our family is fixing to go into missions, and that is going to require a lot of trust in the Lord!! Those verses remind me to do that.

Not only in that area, but also with me being a 19 year old Christian girl, I have a wonderful future awaiting me, if I trust God and follow His plan for my life. Like every other girl out there with the conviction for courting, it's very hard waiting and being patient for God's will to come our way. Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds me to trust God and to leave it all in His hands.

So I am going to continue trusting God, because He knows exactly what He is doing!!!

Psalm 31:1 a
"In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust...."

Psalm 28:7
"The LORD is my heart trusted in him, and I am helped...."

Welcome to 2008!


This year is going to hold a lot of changes for my family and me. A lot of you read my mom's blog, so those of you who do probably know what I am going to say.

My dad told our church Sunday evening that we would be leaving the church to be Missionaries with Highways and Hedges Prison Ministries. He asked the church to give us 3 or 4 months so that he can find a job and get a house for us to live in. (Right now we live in the Parsonage)

So in the next couple of months we will be leaving this church to head into the world of deputation and mission work. This is a HUGE change for us personally, we never even thought about us going into missions, but the Lord had other plans for our family. We are excited, anxious, and nervous all at the same time. But we are looking forward to it!

Happy New Year to all of you and remember to trust God with everything this year! He has a plan for your life...and sometimes it may shock you when you find out what it is!! :o)
