***Lastnight after a much needed conversation with a friend, I hung up the phone and immediately thought of this song. I woke up this morning with it on my mind, in my heart, and knew this blog was a must!!!!!

v.1 You dance over me, when I am unaware.
You sing over me, and I never hear a sound.

chorus: Lord I'm amazed by you, Lord I'm amazed by you.
Lord I'm amazed by you; how you love me.

v.2 You paint the morning sky with miracles in mind
My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand

chorus 2: How deep how wide
How great is Your love for me

It is amazing to me that God ALWAYS knows what we need, when we need it and exactly what moment we need it. Life has thrown a few curves this week. But God knows how to curve them in a different direction. Because HE IS GOD!
Yesterday was filled with bible quiz meet, birthday party, grocery run and everything else in between. Yesterday I spent some time in prayer asking God to show me something. Anything but something. I felt I was loosing the battle over time, emotions, feelings and I was ready to throw in the towel. I was making dinner and my phone rang about 8:30.... I didn't recognize the number so I didn't answer it. (you all have done it before) Anyhow I didn't realize this call had left a message. About an hour later I listened to the message, that finally showed up, and realized it was a wonderful friend of mine that was out of town. I cried because I couldn't believe she took time to call me. She was out of town dealing with her own family tragedy. When I talked to her she had all the right things to say. She was anointed from the word hello.... I cried and she let me to some degree and then she said we are not ruled by our feelings, our fight is not flesh and blood. You have to learn to come back with your feelings and the lies of satan with the word. Kerri dont say it, when you say it that is what you get.... She asked me a question--- If you knew without a doubt GOD had healed you totally,(in every area- emotionaly, mentally, physically) how would you act??? I smiled as she said that. I knew what I would do--- I would dance, I would sing, I would dance some more and so on..... I would share with anyone who would listen "HOW GREAT IS MY GOD".......
So here we are sunday morning....... I have made a casserole for lunch, I am getting everything ready for the girls and I to get to church. It has been a while since I have gotten up on a sunday morning with energy and here we go attitude.... I was made to worship HIM.. It is my duty, it is my job and it is my privilage...
Okay- here is how God works- When I went to hang up with my friend, I said, "thanks for calling", Her responce was- "God told me to call you".
~~I am so blessed by God to have a friend as she. God thank you for allowing me to see your hand in the middle of a thorn bush. MAY I COUNT IT ALL JOY.......To watch you work your miracle in my life today......

~~After hanging up I was in Awe of HIS WONDERS..... He reaches us however He has to I am convienced... ~~

**Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3:20

**For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, agaisnt the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm. Ephesians 6:12

GOD - Where are you? VACATION!!!

This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!

How are you out there my blogging friends? It has been a few days since I have blogged. I had a conversation with our principal this week. We were talking about how difficult the past weeks had been for me and my family. I said yes, I have wondered if God was on vacation. She mentioned to me that someone had given her some napkins that said "my gaurdian angel took flight without me"..... What a statement....

My father in law had surgery a few weeks ago and it is has been very difficult. I have been sick and trying to keep working and just begging for relief. By the time I think I am going to be okay my mother in law gets sick . She calls me at work, and says, "I think I have had a heart attack". Standing in my principals office in a meeting I stop, and within ten seconds I am out the door. The adrinalon starts to pump and the momma bear in me takes over and I am on a mission.

I get to her house withing 5 minutes and off to the hospital. So here we are the next day still here, and she is having a heart cath.

So, this morning I woke up with a scripture on my heart.
1 Corinthians 16:13 Be on your gaurd; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.

As a christian I believe God is faithful and I believe that nothing comes to me unless my heavenly father says its ok. So when I say God, are you on vacation. I have had to step back, ask him what am I supposed to learn from the last 6 weeks of my life. This morning in my quiet time I made a request to God. father I am empty- I need you to feel me up, and give me JOY... I want to laugh, I want to smile and I want to walk in your light that radiates through me.

Well, let me share with you what my Fathers respond was----(okay please dont think I am nuts- however, I felt in my heart, I heard in ears, the words so plainly)

My daughter, my beloved, I love you. I am your Father and I want only the best for you. My promises is for you and you must allow me to hold you up. I would tell you that I have offered you peace, and a way out when there is a need. You my child must take it. You must let go of control and allow me to take control. I will not fight you but I will not disappoint you. I know what is best for you and I have ordained you for such a time. I have called you out and gave you your ministry. Now it is your time to rise up, take your place in the plan I have for you.

Wow, Lord how amazing you are... Teach me to just stop, take in the air, take in the peace that surrounds me. Father if I could just reach the end of this journey- But then again if I reached the end without a battle; the victory wouldn't be near as sweet.....

Father I pray you help me to know the battle is yours. It isnt for me to take but to give it all to you. I have to know you hold us in your hands. You rock us like a baby when we need it, and you hold us up straight and expect us to become the overcomers you have made a way for us to be, when it is time.
