A Mad Woman in Her Bathrobe....and it's Time to Blush.

Don't forget that TODAY is the last day for our fundraiser!! Don't miss your chance to win the iPod Touch and two great runner-up prizes!! And PLEASE take the time to read Lynsay's blog today! I pray that it touches your heart.

There's a lot weighing on my mind this morning. And to boot, as I was having my quiet time with the Lord this morning, something caught my eye out the window. Dog-gone-it if it wasn't a coyote prowling around!! We live way out in the country on ten acres so of course wild life abounds but our house is nestled in the woods and our dog has always done a great job keeping everything but rabbits and squirrels out. But he is so old and deaf. I know that critter is taking advantage of the unguarded yard and casing our hen house...he and his buddies already got most of our meat birds. GRRRR. So for now I will just go out and yell at it if he keeps lurking...nothin' scarier than a mad woman in her bathrobe and slippers!!

Though my house is quiet at the moment and I have some time to sit and write...I'm just not in the mood. I need to get busy doing something productive. But there are some verses that have stuck out to me in my daily reading so I thought I'd share....they are VERY applicable for today.

"To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear. The word of the Lord is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it." Jer. 6:10

"...Their houses will be turned over to others..." Jer. 6:12

"...Peace, peace,' they say when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush." Jer. 6:14,15

Why don't we blush anymore?? Why do we tolerate, even embrace, sinful lifestyles? Why do we justify wrong? Why is everything gray to the world (and even to many of us)...when Truth tells us of black and white? Why aren't we as Christians repenting and completely surrending our hearts to Him? It's time.

Amen. I've been thinking the same thing so often lately.

This is so God. Here is my reading for today (condensed in one quote): "If ever we are to study the Scriptures, if ever we are to spend time in prayer, if ever we are to win souls for Christ, if ever we are to invest our finances for His Kingdom, it must be now. "Night is coming, when no man can work." John 9:4"The time is now."

So, amen to all you said.

I'm catching up on your blog and loving it! We are trying to talk Anna into using the potty-all she says is "Anna, no big girl". She'll be 3 in April- the pressure is on!

You should pick out a name that you love and Ask Shu Li is she likes it- I think she will like it! Even though I am partial to Katie (because I have one) I know what you mean- picking out a name for our daughters is important to me.

You are an awesome mom to your big boys. He ran him down and stuffed the crap out of him- or something like that ;-) way to go B!!!
