... but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

Take a Pen and Paper

Take a Pen and Paper
By Jill Briscoe

Try taking a pen and paper to the Deep Place where nobody goes. Then you can read His letters in the Golden Book and write a reply.

I write it out on paper and I think my thoughts out loud
I speak my heart's foreboding and I pray about the cloud
Of deep and dark depression and a sense of dread and doubt
So I write it out on paper and I get my feelings out.

Then I take it to the Throne Room and leave it there above
And I know that I am understood with sympathy and love
I wait a while in silence till the Spirit meets me there
And He takes my piece of paper and He turns it into a prayer.

I bring my tired believing and my faith that pants for power
And I lay it at the altar in this quiet, scared hour
And I ask for fire igniting weary faith and dying hope
And I cry for stern believing and I seek for power to cope.

Then I read the treasured Scripture that will lift my spirits high
Turn tears to precious laughter and kiss my fears goodbye
I wait until He calms me down and nerves me for the fight
And then He leads me upwards and onwards in the night.

So I revel in these moments in the shadow of the Throne
Where I hear the Father's voice like many waters falling down
There's freedom and forgiveness and unremitting love
So I hate to leave the Throne Room for the shallow place above!

Sleeping forgiven, waking to grace
Nightmares forgotten, things back in place
Coming close to His footstool in the Throne Room above
He settles my soul, and I listen to love.

Weekend Getaway with My Momma!

This past weekend my mom took me to Minneapolis for the weekend. We had such a good time bonding, shopping, watching movies & coloring my hair.

First stop, Minnesota Science Museum! I never realized how gigantic polar bears are!

 This is a whale's scull
 Giant astronaut hanging in the entryway!
 Neil Armstrong's space gloves.
 My lovely mom using the space toilet! It was kinda gross! The yellow hose is for number 1. This toilet has crazy suction power!

 Mummified bird.


It was kinda a bummer because the whole building was under renovation, and it won't fully reopen until 2017.

They were in session...it was really cool to watch!

 A scale model of the cathedral, built out of legos! It took 150 hours to complete!


 The parlor.
 The art room.
 This lady played the organ for us...it was SOO cool!

 The dining room had a secret room behind the walls where all the silver was kept. The walls are made of leather.
 The library/study
 The basement/servants area

 Boiler/furnace room
I had SOO much fun! We went to the theatre and watched Age of Adaline and Mall cops 2. The morning we went home, we dyed my hair....in the hotel room. I LOVE MY MOM SOOO MUCH!
