the Lords comfort,and a new day is coming.

Iam ok and will be back soon.Just havent felt like jumping into it so soon.
thank all of you for your words of comfort and you prayers.
every thing went well and we could feel the peace of our Lord Jesus holding us.
my father is safe with the Lord.
I told the kids if I were to guess what he was doing Id say Dad was in heaven,s work shop doing what he did best
and the Lord being a carpender most likely he was right there showing Dad all the tools heaven has.
that in its self will take him years to check out.
and if the Lord has a metels shop that will take a few more Father will be busy making up for the time he was held back.
I cant wait to see what touches Dad puts on my home there.
the thing Jesus told me to whisper in my step mom,s ear was "you are not alone."
and she knew it was the Lord who said it to her.
she said she would remember it as she made her way with out Dad.

Dad made mistakes in his life,but he made one of the wisest choices.
he recieved Jesus to be his savior.and that is what got him safely home.
be ready cause none of us know when we it payes to be ready.
heaven is only a prayer away.

Jesus I need you as my savior,I have made dumb mistakes in my life trying to do things on my own.I have sinned and done things Iam ashamed of.please forgive me and help me to live for you.come into my heart and be my savior and the Lord of my when I leave here I come home to be with you.
I believe you are the son of God,I believe you died for me.I surrender all to you.
thank you Jesus for forgiving me now and for making me your own.Iam now a child of God,old things are passed away and all things are new.Iam a new person and able to talk to my Father God and to you Jesus,and when I leave here I will live with you forever.amen and amen.
If you said that prayer welcome to the family,all of heaven just sang for joy at a sinner who came home.

if your already saved then pray someone else will use this prayer to be ready for heaven.and thank Jesus for your ticket to heaven.
God bless who ever reads this post.and lead them all to the truth of the gospel of Jesus christ.

thanks for stopping.

my father passed away.

sometime in the night my father left this earth to be with Jesus.
he had been in the nursing home for a few days while my step mom and my brother and his wife and kids were able to go have christmas
with her fokes.
Dad was suppose to come home yesturday.but he was having breathing step mom said they needed to take him to the hospital.some time in the night he passed away in the hospital.

my half brother called me this morning to tell me.
Dad had been going down hill slowly.he was getting skinnyer and more restless.
being a man who was use to being able to go out and work in his shop. or just go for a walk to feel the breeze on his face.Dad was no longer able to do so.his days were spent watching TV in his bed.cause he wasnt able to set long in his chair.he had been sad he was no longer able to do his inventing or shop work.
and the last time we talked face to face he said he missed being able to see the V,s of geese fly over.or hear them in the field by the house.he told of times when he would shoot one and have granny cook father was a blessed man.
he was given many talents from the Lord.and he lived in a wonderful place.he was able to live on the farm his whole life.a place where he ran and played as a boy in the feilds and meadows.along the creek and in the swamp.
he was a farmers son and the faimly lived off the land and what they raised on the farm.
the farm was a place where a kid could be one.there was never a dull moment for a kid.wild life was every where.and you always had things to do.climb tree,s in the jungle tail,swim in the in the hay mow.
the farm was a place others loved to come.there was something about the place that draw people to great grandpa saw it and fell in love with it and moved his family there from out east.
I know Dad was glad to be born there and able to live his whole life in one place.
He is going to be missed by us will be hard on Helen and the family cause they were with him all the please keep them in your prayers.helen had said to me she didnt like to think when Dad left, cause she would be alone when my brother and his wife moved into their new home.I told her she was never alone she had Jesus.
I will try to keep up my blog and fill you in on the news around here but I am not sure if it will be as offen as it use to be.
I am ok so dont worry for me.I am standing on the fact that one day all my loved ones will be together in heaven where no one or nothing can ever part us again.
I still believe this year is a good one.I still have hope and faith for a future of good.Iam stronger for going through last year.I have a new saying.
If I can make it through 2007, I can make it all the way to heaven.
I will close for now and Ill post when I can.if I dont for a while you will understand.thanks for being my friends and for being with me in these times.God bless you all.

peaceful winter night.

the snow is falling out side my window.

christian music plays sloftly in the back round.a feeling of peace and hope hangs like a warm fluffy blanket over my soul and heart.
the season is for all of us to feel the peace and love God sent us in his son.and this year is starting out so much better then 2007.
all I can say and be truthful,is 2007 sucked big time.there was more pain and sorrow,and sadness,and heart break for 20 years,in one.
I have never been so glad to see a year go and die as the year 2007.but as I sit here I think of it as a year of victory as well.cause I grew stronger in my faith,and was able to move on.
not every thing is good for you.there are times when things seem as if they will never look good you should give up and give in.but Iam here to tell you "dont".cause God loves you and He will take all the bad from 2007 and turn it to good on your behalf.
and if you were blessed this year and nothing bad happened then give God the praise He deserves.and be thankful you sailed through 2007 with calm skys.
I hear hope in the voices of the prophets and pasters.but I also hear it in my spirit.this is a new year and its a new begining.we have a fresh start and a new year.God is faithful.
I look back on the year and I do not know how I ever made.then I think,"I know how!!!"
it was Jesus...if not for him Id never have made it to this point.He carryed me some times,he took my hand and lead me,he did what ever I needed to make it.
at times when my faith was so low it was almost gone.he spoke softly to my heart and helped me go on a few more minutes or days till I could feel strong most comforting times were when I could forget my mess and pray for seemed to lift me when I prayed for the needs of those I ran across who needed prayer.
tonight on clement was speaking.and I had just turned on the TV was as if I needed to be at that place at that time.cause what he said was just what I needed to hear.
He said that God gives you a promise and you wait on him to recieve it.but for some reason something happens and it seems like it wont come to pass.but its not cause God doesnt intend to bring it to pass.its cause maybe someone who was close to you betrayed you or didnt obey.or did their own will instead of Gods.
and when he said it,it freed me.cause I knew it was just for me.alot of stuff was confusing this year.and one was the mess with hubby.and I had a very hard time understanding why all of it happened.but as Kim spoke I knew why.
someone can love a person with all their heart and treat them as if they are a treasure and valued.but you can still lose that person if they dont feel the can try to build a life with them,and long to have it turn out wonderful.but some times it doesnt.
and you cant stop dead in your tracks and give have to look at the truth and pick your self up and let God dust you off,and move on.God will turn what the devil ment for bad,to good...
God has a plan for me and He will bring it to pass.He promised me things long before hubby came along.and I know He will bring them to pass with out hubby being here.
I would rather eat bread and water with someone who loves me,then to eat a feast with someone who doesnt.Id rather share my life with someone who values and cares for me.then with someone who wants to be the center of attention all the time.
I dont need a man to be fullfilled or whole.all I need is life is in his hands and I know he will help me do what he wants me to do.if its alone with only him then its fine by me.
2008 is a fresh start for me.and I feel I have come a long way.and the time is here to fly.
some times I see some birds trying to get off the ground.geese are funny to watch.they run a little ways and flap their wings.then they flap till they get air born.and when they do its a joy to be seen.its effertless.they seem to own the sky.but when they take off or land its alittle bumpy.
I believe 2007 was my time to learn to get ready for the take off.I may not have had much practis in taking it was a hard time getting air born,I flapped around in alot of stress trying to get air born.
but once I let lose and made it the stress was gone.and the sky blongs to me now.will there be times when Iam grounded for a rest?yes even seasoned flyers need to come to rest.but I will learn how to take off and fly effertlessly.
bad things happen to good people,and good things happen to bad people.its how we react to them that counts.I chose to ask Jesus for help.and I know with his help no matter what I will get the victory if I do not give up.
I lost alot this year,but I gained even more.Iam not the person I was in 2007,with the Lords help Iam stronger.
thanks for reading.God bless you and give you peace.

I believe in angels.

I love to see pictures of angels.they are always so pretty.but I havefound something odd about it.the pictures are always of girl angels.and I have never read any thing in the bible of girl angels.
I have read about micheal the ark angel and other man like angels but never once a girl.
once a few years ago I asked the Lord what my angel looked like.
I had heard they were big and not little chubby faced naked baby angel,s.
so that night as I lay in bed I looked at the corner of my bedroom cause the Lord said he would show me a glemps of my I looked at the corner,there was no light on and only the dem light from the street.
and there in the corner hunched down on one knee was the most awesome being I ever saw.
he was about 8 or so feet tall cause he had to bend to fit in the space.he had big wings like the one in this picture,but it was a he not a she.
his face was kind but strong as if he were there to protect me.he had a belt around his waist with some thing in it but Iam not sure if it was a sword or what.he had on sandles that wrap almost to his knee and he had wavey hair that was longesh to his chin.and he didnt scare me.but I felt more comforted.
I felt he was someone I could trust,as a friend.and then he was gone as fast as he came.I dont think he left he just wasnt seeable any more.(I think back now and I cant believe I wasnt scared.I just waited and there he as I remembered it I thought Lord I most have been given strength to look.cause now Id be scared.isnt it funny how things happen?)I have never been scared any more cause I know he is here guarding me.but dont ask to see him doing it.
I remember a story I heard about two little boys.dont even know where I saw it or heard it.but its ture.
a little boy and his brother were out side playing when the older boy desided to climb a big tree in their yard.the younger boy told him not to cause their mom had told them not to. but the older boy just did it he climbed higher he got to a rotten branch and it broke and he was high in the tree.
and he fell to the and it knocked the wind out of him,and he lay on the ground.
the little brother ran as fast as he could to get his mom,partly cause his brother fell.but also because of what he had seen.
he ran screaming to his mom.billy fell mommy and an angel got under him to break the fall.the little boy had landed on the back of his angel.
I remember once a long time ago when Emmy my grandaughter was very young she was just walking.she had followed me out as I was leaving.
I didnt know it and when I truned to get something she made me lose my footing.and I did every thing to not land on her .I was able to push her away from me and turn and fall without hurting myself.
now I am a big girl and I should have gotten hurt because I fell hard.but the floor felt like a soft feather bed.and I didnt even end with a black and blue mark.and dear little emmy didnt get hurt.only her pride cause she couldnt figure why her Na Na had pushed her away.she cryed and I tryed to explain but a little girl doesnt understand.but i knew our heavenly father had sent a angel to help us both.
God loves us and he pertects those who trust him to do so.I am not sayig nothing happens to us,Iam saying if we trust him he comes when we need him.I didnt have time to do anything but worry for em.and all I could say was Lord help me so I dont hurt em.
and she was fine and I didnt have a pain.God loves us...
well dear friends Iam busy and only have time to post today.Ill be back on when I get something more to maybe a few days so hang in there. just know I love you all and think about how your doing.i been feeling so tired lately.just cant put my figure on it.
so please pray for me.I think its cause I get wore out when I go away.or it maybe cause I been feeling blue this year.but I am resting in the Lord and trusting Ill be up and ready for the fight for victory again.
God bless you all and have a wonderful year.full of God,s blessings.
