Time to serve....

Time for mom! I am really enjoying quiet afternoons at home.
Although, I can't help but wonder if God has a greater plan for me then sitting around my house "wasting time" at the computer! (lol)
James and I have both felt called into full time ministry, what this will look like or when it will happen is unknown to us at the time! We can not just pick up and go while he is committed to the military. I have decided not to sit around waiting to serve Him "after the military".
This week I will go to the crisis pregnancy center and pick up a volunteer packet, and seek out other places I can minister and serve within the community. Would love to have my God see me as this "woman of noble character" from Proverbs 31.
Will give updates as to what the LORD is doing in Germany!!

10 A wife of noble character, who can find?..................
......20 she opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy........
Proverbs 31

Heavenly Hug

So....... Here I sit on a Monday morning with my little guy running around and a mug of steaming coffee! Great way to start the week and try out a little blogging! I have never kept a blog before and make no promises at keeping up with this one! =) I enjoy keeping up with friends and family and reading their blogs, so I thought I would try it out!

I am reflecting today on Psalms 118. Most famously known for the verse that tells us "this is the day the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it"

Did you know that this Psalm begins and ends with the same verse?
Give thanks to the LORD for HE is good, HIS love endures forever. vs.1 and vs.29

How much is God wanting to remind me of His goodness today!?! The other day I was having a "moment" and I cried because I missed my family, it was my dads birthday and I wanted to be there! So, I am considering this passage today as a hug from my heavenly father. He has wrapped this verse around the chapter, He is wrapping His arms around me! HE is good, HIS love endures forever!!
