Ok, I have to brag

Patience and I went to Plainview today, so she could visit her husband. We stopped in Lubbock on the way home and visited two of my favorite stores Mardel and Lifeway. I picked up the Me Myself and Lies workbook by Jennifer Rothschild for the LPM Summer Bible Study at Lifeway. But, I hit the jackpot at Mardel. See what I got for the sum of 66 dollars and some change.

Please look closely at the second picture. I scored an ESV Leather Bound Study Bible for $22.99, thank you Jesus!!! The front of the box has a sticker on it that says misprint.

When I die and get to heaven, my dream job would be the position of caretaker for all the Bibles that have also died and gone to heaven. Jews believe that anything that has God or any of the forms of our Heavenly Father's name written in it or on it can not be thrown away, but have to be buried. So, I want the job of caring for these wonderful friends that have been entrusted to us, to encourage, grow, correct and point us to Jesus.

If you know anything about me at all, it's that I am a Bible person. I love them, and I love to give them away. I do not know who this Bible is meant for, but until it's rightful person comes along I will enjoy it, and praise God for the gift of it. I am also a big believer in Discipleship. I think that when someone makes a profession of faith, that you should place a Bible in one hand and an accountability partner in the other. When you introduce someone to Christ, their reality is changed, and until they get their feet under them, they need someone to help this new reality stick. We are losing way to many people because of a lack of one on one discipleship (sorry I will get off that soapbox). Anyway if you are looking for a wonderful discipleship tool, my I introduce you to the New Believers Bible it was also included in my jackpot find. This is a Bible that I truly believe in for new believer or people seeking God. I have personally seen this Bible bring people to Christ.

I also picked up Anne Jackson's new book Mad Church Disease and can not wait to start it. If you live in or around the Lubbock TX area, she is going to be speaking at Turning Point Community Church on July 5th and in Dallas TX at The Oaks Church on July 12th. I found Anne when she was in India with Compassion International. A woman of God she is.

Then on top of that God blessed me with some good girlfriend time with Patience. The only way this day could get any better is if Jesus came and said let's go. If only it were today, me and my Bibles long for home.

My Chair.

This is my quiet time chair. The place where I come and spend time alone with God. That is if I can get the cats out of it. If they are not in it. Elvis is. I guess that they are keeping my place warm for me.

Angela, McMama, and Raechel have all written a wonderful post in regards to B and April Rose. Please go and read it.

The blog has been removed, but B should not be, in fact Beccah should be at the top of each and everyone of our prayer lists, and before you go and get your hurt and your pout on, I will quote the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who suffered far worse than we ever will to you, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." It is not our place to judge, it is our place to pray.

Pray also for Angela, McMama, and Raechel, that our most gracious heavenly Father will give them peace, rest, and wisdom. These ladies have shown us what it means to be the hands and feet of Christ, and to love without boundaries.

God is good all the time.

Please be praying

Couple of prayer request please.

My daughter Magan had some day surgery done today. She is sore and not feeling well. I am going to go over and help with the gbabies tomorrow, but after that she will be on her own. Taylor who is four is some help, but Brenden is just 16 months old, and Hayley is nearly 2 months old, so she has her hands full.

My friend Patience is having a CT Scan biopsy tomorrow on her Thyroid. There is a growth attached to the Thyroid. She has no insurance.

Please be praying for my friends Robert and Sue. Robert had a head on with a deer on his motorcycle back in April and progress has been slow. They have moved him from here to a long term facility in a larger area. So Sue is away from him during the week. This is the Caring Bridge Site. If you have the time please read through the messages left by visitors, the one from the Sheriff that was the first responders is very powerful.

Also be praying for me. I have been in a bit of a funk lately. The divorce is moving forward, and according to the kids, Rusty is wanting this over so he can marry the "love of his life" in August. I am trying so hard to be kind and not bitter, but when you are left with the bills and responsibility, while somebody gets "paid" to go play, it's hard.
