Kisses from Heaven

Have you ever felt like you were on the receiving end of a kiss from Heaven?  Nothing like it! This day was one of those days!

Church service was awesome! I love when I show up and notice God moving around the place..and touching hearts like only HE can do! If that were all that happened today I would still feel like kisses from heaven.  But the day increasingly was full of HIM all around me! He knows how much i miss my friends that are far away. Altho, it wasn’t all of them, it was three contacts today from three different states, all just wanted to love on me, and yes! i was loving on them too!  God just knows and provides all that we need and desire.  From the time I left my home this morning, to this very moment (hanging with my family), HIS presence is incredible.  I am praying that you all know what that is like, and that you will very soon receive your own kisses from heaven. Peace

TAM’s Vacation at Darla’s

My friend Tam is amazing! Really, she has spoken on her blog about teleporting to Kansas CIty from Oregon, but this one is bigger than that..she has cloned her self to be in two places at once!! So although she has been home with her family, hosting another blogger, she has also been running wild with me for 10 days. Where?? in Lancaster County, PA/ Pasadena, MD/ Ocean City MD..not to exclude Hershey PA (but technically that is also Lancaster County-i think)

So here is the pics from “Tam vacations at Darla’s”..enjoy!

upon arriving, a MAC attack was in order..

Look What God Has Done

I truly have been blessed beyond measure, and so have you. But we do have to look for it. Acknowledge that all good things come from God.

I started blogging while in a pit, and asking for accountability and desire to know HIM more and love HIM more…HE answers those kind of prayers..not as we might think, but as HE sees beneficial to us.

Posting some pics here of the blessings HE has given me the last couple of weeks! People who have fanned the fire of my soul, friendships that will last an eternity, and a safe place to bare my soul. Thank you God for your provisions!

Can’t remember B4d’s son and daughter in law’s name (in the background), but I will always remember how he took a background check on us! LOL My God is big enough to cover small details like that!  Patty (Ric’s wife) is beautiful but camera shy, and makes the best chocolate cake I ever ate!

we had church together! these are our worship leaders, AMAZING!

Just wanted to share what GOD has been doing, in uniting more of the body of Christ, answering my prayers to know HIM more and love HIM more, and showing me how very beautiful it is know people who have hearts for HIM, and live life to the fullest, as we know it is also a gift!

Coming soon…pics of TAM (inprogress) and her vacation with all of us, as she was still on the west coast, she is talented like that!

Fixing my Focus…

Facebook.  Twitter.  Blogs. Outreach. Church. Family. Life good and bad. Work. Friendships. None of which are bad things, but if not in the correct priority is demolition to my walk with Christ. So my struggles, and my lack of “livehappy” is my own doing.

Since my top priority is walking with the LORD, and being all that I can be in HIM, i needed to make some difficult decisions.

~my time with God comes first in the day or this laptop does not open til it happens.

~I am moving my writing to Philter48 because that is my call to write and to be a light that shines, and the accountability that goes with it. I am sure this is a good move.

~Being a part of a church family is God’s will for me…HE has placed me with a group of people who have a heart for the lost, and maybe for the first time I feel like I am home and with my vision “An Army of Love”.  Been struggling with this, but time to stop fighting it and move on with it.

~limiting my facebook time, and my twitter time, but not feeling like I need to stop it.

~family is important to me, and I am working on being more flexible with them, they are a gift from God.

~my friendships are important to me, and I want to be more open to spend more time with them.

~embracing the life God has given to me unselfishly, and living happy, being grateful, and keeping a Kingdom focus.

If you want to read more of ponderings, you will find them at Philter48. My outreach to search and rescue people who are bound by the enemy unknowingly.   You can follow me on Twitter and also on Facebook.

Love you all, and hope to see you and hear from you…Peace
