Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

"Stylish Blogger Award"

A fellow bloggy world friend, Katie, whom I was able to meet late last year at the President's 5K in honor of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital, and fellow mommy to a precious daughter with Arthrogryposis.... btw- one of the cutest babies ever..... gave me this "Stylish Blogger Award"......   If anybody is in need of an spiritual Uplift, read Katie's blog! She is a huge blessing from the Lord.  She has insight that many times just blesses me so very much!

Now, Stylish?  LOL
I am the no makeup, sweat wearing, wearing my husband's sweat socks to keep warm kinda girl. LOL
BUT THANK YOU! It is very sweet to know others read. :)

Upon receiving this award, I am supposed to:
1) Thank, and link back to the person who awarded it.
2) Share 7 things about myself.
3) Award 10 great bloggers.
4) Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

 7 Things about myself:

1. I Love the Lord Jesus Christ and want to glorify Him in all I do.
I fail at that many times a day. But I know HE knows and picks me up and holds me in his Hands.

2. I have been a Mom since I was 20 years old.  I still think it is an amazing, wonderful, thrilling, gift..... 

3. I am a Ya-Ya, and there is great joy in Ya-Ya-hood. :)

4. One of the biggest pleasures in my life was teaching a group of  4th - 6th graders for a Wednesday Night Bible study.  They were sort of the "reform class" like in Reform school.... and all the teachers would quit after a few weeks.  I volunteered.  These kids were in need of serious truth. So we started a simple verse by verse bible Study through the book of John and little lives were transformed in that class.  I miss those kids.  (they are all grown up now) :)

5. I waited all week to go outside so I wouldn't fall on the ice. I have this bad habit of falling on ice and it takes a while to get over.  So I kept a really safe distance from the porch, or made sure the snow was heavy enough not to slip.  And then, last night my daughter in law called. I went in my BEDROOM to talk to her, sat in the antique rocking chair and it BROKE, throwing me back.... I was so embarrassed that I didn't make a peep, but while we were talking, it took me about 5 minutes to get out of that mess.
And yes, today I am sore! UGH

6.  I am actually an Introvert.   For some reason that shocks people. :)

7.I still don't know how to wear my hair!  (that's deep) LOL       

Now, for 10 bloggers awards:

Ouch on the rocking chair. I hope you didn't hurt yourself.

I'd say let Erika style your hair. And there's also a great photo of your with headkerchief or bandana or whatever. :)

Rebecca said...

Oh mom! You fell talking to ME! awww...I feel bad. I had no idea, though I did note that you seemed kinda distracted at one point. That must have been why. LOL Are you feeling better now, I hope?

Christie M said...

It was a really stupid fall. LOL
Yea, that distraction was me trying to figure out how to get up when my feet were over my head. Took about 5 minutes. LOL
I am still a little sore, but at LEAST I didn't fall on the ice!

You Are Still Holy
