I just might be back.....

Wow....it's been a long time since I've seen you!!!  I should probably say I'm sorry, but that wouldn't be truth, so I won't.
I notice that some of you keep checking to see if I'm still alive....well, here I am!
I didn't start off last August thinking that I would not be back for nearly a year, I just somehow never made my way back here.

After all that, though, I have awesome news to share.....CD graduated from CFNI on May 10, 2013 AND she ended her college years debt-free.  You might want to re-read that - DEBT - FREE!!!  That was only by the grace of God, folks. Grace!

Cupcake has a boyfriend....they have been together since late December. He's sweet, we like him.

My Dear and I are having a hard time believing that come December, we will have been married 25 yrs - where has the time gone??

Well, that is pretty much catch-up and all that I will do for today. I'll try to be back before next April - and will have pics to share soon, of graduation and other recent events!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.....like bloggy friends that check up on me!!

God's girl,

Directly from our CD:

Gotta Have Faith

I have been blessed time and time again to see God provide in amazing ways for the things I need! Last week I received a free tire and my school bill for summer got paid off! It amazes me to see God work things out time and time again. However, last night I got a little wake up call from God as I realized I have trusted Him for big things, but not little things.
I was spending some time focusing on praying for myself and things I am dealing with and said to God, “I’m sorry, I keep asking for things and having to trust you to give it to me.” What a terrible thing to say to the God who promises to provide for me! Who calls me His child and says He will not withhold things from me. How awful of me to keep Him out of parts of my life that He desperately wants to be a part of because He knows what is best in each situation. I realized that God wants to be part of everything I am part of. He wants to me to make known the things I want and need and He delights in giving them to me. It does not mean that God is my personal Santa that I can make a wish and have it come on demand, but it is about the faith involved in believing that I am not expected to take care of everything myself. He wants to provide for me! So I am making a decision to trust God for all the things I want and need allowing Him to work it all together and be my provider!

The Founders' Key by Larry P. Arnn - a book review

I'm not too sure how to begin....I usually love reading but this was one book that I really struggled to just pick up!

My apologies to Mr. Arnn, I simply did not like this book.

Many times while trying to read it, I felt it was written in circles and that while I had already grasped the concept he was trying to get across, I would then get lost in the wording and have to re-read the section to fully understand what was being said. And, I'm not even sure that made sense.

I do believe we need to gain a better understanding of what our Founders' wanted to establish for America, though, and if you are a very deep reader this book may be just the one for you.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow....

God's girl,

God provides....

Update:  All the monies due were miraculously given in time for CD to move in and begin working with other YFN interns!!!  I knew that God would provide!  Her next due date is the beginning of July, to finish paying for this summer session.  She still needs quite a bit, but I am still confident that my God is big enough to provide for what He has called her to do!  Thank you for your part!!!

I'm not even sure how to begin.....my heart isn't heavy, but life didn't go the way we had planned today.
CD had planned to move back to school today and start on her summer internship, working at the Summer youth camp they host.  She has been so excited, basically sitting on pins and needles the few weeks she has been here! Being a dorm counselor at youth camp has been a dream of hers for a very long time!

We packed up her car and she headed off. About an hour later, she calls.....she can't move in until she has paid a registration fee for this Summer session. We thought that when last semester's bill was paid off that she would be able to register and pay out the Summer monies over the next few weeks.

Obviously, we were wrong!

I know that God provides and I feel very strongly that I am supposed to post this on my blog....even though it goes against some of my rules of personal sharing.

I'm not specifically asking anyone to come forward and pay it, but rather to join with us in prayer, knowing that God does provide!

God has never failed us!!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow......like needed finances!

God's girl, Pamela
