First Date...

Every day God talks to us. I am learning to be still and listen for what he is teaching me. I am going to put them here (so I can find them :-) and read them many times to remind myself! If you happen to be reading this I will share with you. I hope they touch your heart as well.

This is how I start my day before I even get out of bed. I read today's devotional and then grab my bed Bible and look up the verses. Today's message was to relax in His arms. Instead of getting upset when I run out of steam I should rejoice that God is there to lean on and it is a reminder to trust Him.

I just had a 'lazy day' this week and let myself be a bit upset as I had to stay on the porch instead of running with the big dogs. This message is a comfort to me as, even though my health is better, there are still a lot of down days. Now I know just to kick back, lean on him and enjoy my time spent with him. 

Today's verses were: Deuteronomy 33:27 and Psalm 27:13-14

My first stop was my inbox when I got online. From (in)  there was a post that reminded me of when I was a young mom and  my daughter. Sweet memories (most of them LOL!)

I read: For When Your Child Feels Out of Control (and You Do, Too) by Sarah Mae

She shared: 
The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;                                
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
Zephaniah 3:17, ESV

I told her I was going to put it on my blog so I could read it over and over. You can sign up to get her blog posts and also sign up for her Sisterhood Circle. I am going to try it but I may be a fish out of water. It may just be young moms :-)

Last night I was half way listening to the TV and half way reading or half way playing a game that is supposed to calm me down for the night.... I just zone out. My phone chimed at 11:30 pm. It was my daughter... texting that my grandson has his first 'date' tonight. He just turned 14 and has always been shy. Mary said, "Where did MY Alex go? Who is this kid that TALKS to classmates and ASKS a girl out???"

Don't worry. It is a small town and someone knows someone and the girl is a good girl. And... it is a group date. They are all meeting in the park and then my son in law is going to be chauffeur for the evening. Wow... my grand baby.... wasn't he just born a year or two ago??

AND the girl? (I feel awful as I was in a state of shock and forgot to ask her name) was voted homecoming queen last night!

This is a picture of Alex... he turned 14 on Aug 28th and the twins arrived on Aug 29th. Mary said he is VERY good with them. He is so young! Please pray that they have a wonderful, safe, fun, safe, happy, safe time. God will be with them!

That is it for today... my inbox is empty and my news has run out. I have linked most of this and hope you enjoy and have an awesome weekend! I will probably see you Monday!
