Psalm 32

Blessed is he whose trangression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit.

When I kept silent, my bones grew old
Through my groaning all the day long.
For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was turned into the drought of summer.

I acknowledge my sin to You,
And my iniquity I have not hidden.
I said "I will confess me transgression to the LORD,"
And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.

For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You
In a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters
They shall not come near him.

You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.

Do not be like the horse or like the mule,
Which have no understanding,
Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle,
Else they will not come near you.

Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;
But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.

Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Things on my mind...

If you don't know our church is going through a month of revival. Our Pastor has been teaching on longing for revival, pursuing holiness, embracing brokenness, accepting repentance (this sunday), and receiving grace (the following Sunday) on Sunday mornings. He has also been teaching a life of worship through prayer, a life of worshiping through fasting, and a life of worshiping through scripture (this coming wednesday) on Wednesday evenings. We haven't been to church on Sunday for a couple of Sundays because we have been out of town or we have been sick, but Bob and I have been taking time to listen to the sermons through Podcast. I am so amazed on how God is working through the lives of my fellow Kingsland family.

I look forward to Wednesdays. For one... Wednesdays are great days because I don't have to make dinner (we go to church and eat dinner). Two... I love helping out Ely with the 4 year old WAM (worship arts ministry) kids. And third... the revival going on in our church. With helping out in WAM we end up going late to the Worship time on Wednesdays and I know we miss out on some amazing things, but when I have come in late the last few times I can feel God in that room. I can feel the strength of the Holy Spirit being poured out. It is one of the most amazing thing I have ever felt. And to hear the roaring of voices praying and praising the Might One is more then words can describe.

Sunday, January 31 is the big day. It is the day of Kingsland's Sacred Assembly... and I can't wait to see God move even more.

So finally getting to my point... I have so much on my mind... Changing my attitude, my words, how I spend my time, how I spend my days with my kids, how I am praying, the people I call friends, how I judge people, how I gossip, the things I idolize... and just so much more....

I also have been thinking about people around me... the people who say they are Christians but don't portray it... people in my life that I am not sure if they know Christ but would never ask because I feel I wouldn't know how to answer questions or have the right answers... thinking about the people that don't believe the Truth... It is all so confusing and consuming to me and my thoughts. I know God will put whatever I need to do in front of me when the time comes :o).

"If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

"Let the words of my mouth and the
meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my strenght and me Redeemer." Psalm 19:14

Haiti support

Friday I talked to Hailee about Haiti and tried to explain an earthquake to her. First, I told her there is a island (not sure if it is a peninsula or an island) called Haiti and they are really poor. I told her they don't have lights or toilets or air conditioning etc. Then I told her about the earthquake. I told her an earthquake is when it shakes the earth. It can be a little shake or it can be a big shake and knock building down etc. Well I told her there was an earthquake in Haiti and it was a big one. I told her that building fell and a lot of people died from the building falling on top of them and some people were stuck underneath the building and waiting for help. I told her a lot of people are hurt and they need a lot of help.

I told her one of the ways we could help was by going to the store and buying all kinds of different band-aids and medicine for them (our church sent an email out Thursday afternoon saying they need supplies for a group going over to Haiti on Saturday). Friday morning before school we went to Walgreens and bought off-brand Tylenol, alcohol swabs, gauze, medical tape, and tweezers. I felt like it probably wasn't much but maybe it could help a few people out.

I felt really good by just doing that. That maybe we helped a bit. I am thankful to be apart of a church that cares so much for other people and gives us (the members) an oppurtunity to help a big situation that we would never be able to do without them.

The SICKNESS!

Hailee survived the bug that had her hanging her head over the toilet for 12 hours. It was a brutal 12 hours! Anytime she drank something it mad her stomach hurt and in the bathroom she went. But, thankfully her last throw up session was 2:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon.

This morning she woke up with a beautiful smile on her face. She said she felt good :o)! She was happy that when she drank her tummy didn't hurt. That always makes a mommies little heart sing when your child is in no more pain :o).

We believe Hailee got this nasty 12 hour bug from Tyler, TX. We went there this past weekend to celebrate Eva's 4th birthday. Eva had a fun Bounce House to bounce in and some yummy Barbie Cake to eat. Who knows where this bug came from?

Eva got sick last night, but only threw up a few times. I found out today that Carmen (a cousin who was at the party too) was sick yesterday also. So, they all gave it to eachother. Isn't that special :o)?

The Greene House is a lot better today. All we have are runny noses, but I will take that any day over puke. :o)

Heidi is 18 months old

Today Heidi is 18 months old and we went to the doctor for her 18 month check up. All is going great with Heidi and she is growing like a little weed! Her are her stats... she weighed in at 19 lb 5 oz (in the 3%), she is 31 inches long ( in the 25-50%), and her noggin' is 46 1/2 cm around. She is growing just perfectly! My babies are just long and skinny (I don't think Heidi is as long as Hailee was), but Dr. Clarke just expects that from my babies.

Heidi is into everything! She loves things she isn't supposed to get into. She loves to go into Hailee's room and get into all the little things and play with Hailee's doll house. Heidi loves music and she loves to dance. She also loves birds and fish. She loves to watch Finding Nemo and she loves to see birds flying outside and sign (sign language) bird and say bur bur bur. It is so stinkin' cute! She loves saying Chloe (but says Clo Clo). She will go over to Chloe when Chloe is sleeping or laying down and will point at her nose and poke her finger in Chloe's nostrils and say nose. She also likes to poke at Chloe's eyes and say eye. She also thinks Chloe's flappy ears are fun (Chloe doesn't like that much)! Heidi loves everything! This is pretty much a short list of Heidi love list. She is pretty much a very happy baby, but if she isn't she will let you know :o).

Heidi is such a joy to have in our family. Bob and I are blessed beyond measures. Thank you Lord! Happy 18 months Heidi!

Are we ready?

I have a few little question...

Are we ready for when the Lord comes?

Are we ready for Him to look at us?

Have we done what we should have done before His coming?

Have we glorifed Him through our actions, words, eyes, and thoughts?

Are we ready to do His will and step out of our comfort zone?

Have you been obeying Him?

Have you heard that small voice and obeyed?

These are just a few questions I think about through out my days. I wonder how I will react when He comes.... will I cry (probably), will I be on my knees (probably), will I be able to look at Him knowing I have obeyed (probably not.). I am trying to obey and hear that quiet voice. I pray I will please Him and bring Him glory... I pray He will lead me out of my comfort zone. I pray these crazy things. The thing is I have to obey.

I know...

I am totally excited on what the Lord has in store for our church! I know it scary for some to think about revival and getting closer to a Holy God, but I am not. I believe everything I read in the Bible. I believe it is truth. I am just one of those kinds of people that believes what is told to me. I know I have icky stuff inside and I know my Holy God wants to get rid of it.

I am repenting more these days since I did a Bible study by Nancy Leigh DeMoss called Seeking Him all on personal revival. It was so very awesome! I did go through some stuff, but God kept by my side. And through that study I have learned more about sin and what I never thought was sin. The world these days sugar coats everything to where you don't think it is sin... that it is just normal.

It is okay to have sex with whoever and whenever. It is okay to be a homosexual. It is okay to have an abortion. It is okay to watch that on TV ect. IT IS NOT OKAY! All of this is sin. No sin is bigger than another sin. SIN IS SIN! All of this makes me so sad, because the world thinks it is okay. You know why it is not okay? Because the Bible, the truth, the word from God, the holy word says it is not okay.

Here is my question... How can I make a difference? What can I do? I am a stay-at-home mom with little ones and everyday responsibilites... these are not excuses... this is my life and I want to know what I can do while continuing on with my life, but I want to help and make a difference. I am crying out.... WHAT CAN I DO? I know I can pray and I am.... but I want to do more.

Psalm 29
Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones,
Give unto the Lord glory and strength.
Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name;
Worship the Lord in beauty and holiness.

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
The God of glory thunders;
The Lord is over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
The voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon.

He makes them skip like a calf,
Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord divides the flame of fire.

The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
The Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth,
And strips the forests bare;
And is His temple everyone says "Glory!"

The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood,
And the Lord sits as King forever.
The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace.
