I'm Finally Back Online!!! Thanks the Lord!!

Wow, so much has happened around here since I posted last. Where to begin? Well, Handy (the new puppy) ate the computer power cord. Hubby is NOT very happy about that. We went out and purchased a universal cord, but that hasn't been working to well, so I have been taking a unscheduled break from blog world.

I've missed ya'll. But we had to get a desk top computer anyway. So we went out to Best Buy and got one last night. And, hubby found a computer repair shop, they can get him the exact original type cord he needs for the laptop.

I don't know if I have mentioned it, but I am doing a TERRIFIC Bible study by Beth Moore, Esther!! Oh my goodness, it is so awesome!! God is working on me like you wouldn't believe. If you ever get the chance to take is amazing Bible study, Do it. I guarantee that you will be blessed.

The Bible study is at church and we all sit together and watch the segment with Beth Moore on video, then we break up into small groups. I love my small group. It's such a great group of women. I have become friends with 2 of them, (I am so thankful for that) Jennifer and Debbie. God is so good! Thanks to all ya'll who have been praying for me to make good Christian friends!

I will go over some of the things that the Lord has revealed to me through this study in future post. I can't wait to share these things with you.

I still haven't gotten out and done my Operation Christmas Child project, but I am planning on doing it. Please pray for me as I get ready for this and also pray for my neighbors, that they will be receptive to help this wonderful cause. (I have a fear that no one will help) This is one of the things that I am coming to terms with while studying the book of Esther. She had a fear of going before King Xerxes, to speak to him about the Jews and she conquered that fear, with the help of God Almighty!! He makes us courageous. One of my most favorite Bible verses is Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Jesus, please give me the strength to do Your good works!!

Later my dear friends,

Stopping by from SITS! I read your profile and had to say "hey"! I'm a southern girl (by birth, by heart, and now by location) but I spent a good bit of my life in Naperville & Wheaton! I miss it so much, even though I love where I'm at now! Come visit me sometime @

Welcome back to blog land!

I did that study last spring with our church and it was definitely an amazing, life altering study. I hope to go back and do it again sometime in the future.

sounds like my dog... she's so far chewed up 2 shoes of our friends--- and she's not even a puppy. she'll be 3 next month. Let's hope she won't act like a puppy for the rest of her life! she's also chewed up some christmas lights... it's a wonder she didn't get electrocuted.

Glad you're back and glad you were able to get a new computer. The Bible study sounds great! And I'm sure the shoebox thing will be received by your neighbors! We've done that at our church for a few years and it's always a blessing!
