New Beginnings

Where has the time gone. It has been awhile since I have written anything. Life has a way of interrupting in good ways as well as maybe some bad. But for us it has been good and we are so very thankful. Here we are beginning a new year with a new Grandbaby, in a new home, and working new jobs. Our life in Arizona for 5 in a half years was filled with many a life lessons, some good and some not so good. But hey we are back living in our home town and life has seemed to begin afresh for us. Wow! how thankful I am for fresh starts. God is so very good about that, giving us new beginnings that is and allowing us the freedoms to live and learn and to come to that place where we can sit back and look at all that has transpired and say thank you God for your mercy and grace, for your loving kindness and for your blessings that come our way more often then not if we would just take the time to be still and listen and watch. How Great God has been and always will be. Placing our trust in Him will always in the end bring forth His tender affection and mercy. Life will never cease to be difficult from time to time but nor will it cease to be good from time to time. I guess that's what it takes so as to keep our eyes fixed upon what really matters in life. Trusting God and a whole lot of lovin is what will hold out in the end.

New beginnings come often in life. We are at that point again ourselves, a time to start a new beginning, perhaps the last on this earth. In our case, not a new baby, but our grown babies about to take the step out to their own lives. This is good for them and us, but we will have to move on from this place soon as well. Place is too big and costly for us now.

Nice to see you write even a small piece and Joe should write more himself.

hi Larry.. yes new beginnings come often some may be bittersweet, but there are seasons for all things i guess. I hope you and your wife find a nice place that you can call home again, we also downsized went from 2100 sq ft to 1100 sq ft. Its been hard finding places to put things but in time i know it will be the perfect size for my husband and I. We are praying that our son will find a better job and a place of his own soon for him and his fiance, they are staying with us and her little girl. So it is a little cramped right now. But all in good time. I hope for them to marry soon before they make the move though. Times have been tough for so many when it comes to jobs and just making a decent living. But i know that if we keep our eyes on God and trust for His provision He will be faithful in seeing His children thru.

For some reason your post about Joe writing his own blog and congratulating us about our little Myah wouldn't publish. I think Joe would write more if he had more time. He works about 66 hrs a week so he doesn't have much time to do much of anything else. But we are thankful for the job and know that in good time things will slow down just a bit for him..

Take care Lar

The snow says not likely in Greater Phoenix. I am glad the move was good.

Thanks Russ... yeah it's kinda nice seeing the snow again.. :)

Tell Joe I feel for him. I use to work those 60 and more hours a week all the time and then work some more at home. I'm glad those days are over. I couldn't do it anymore. I haven't worked at all now since Christmas Eve. I don't know if I'll ever be called back or not this spring. This last two weeks I wouldn't have been able to gang those clothes anyway. i had bursitis of my right knee and could hardly walk or do much of anything.

I'm hoping to really step up my writing in 2012.

My son signed an apartment lease yesterday, so today he is going to be moving some of his stuff down. A lot of changes.

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt. 1

How important is it to know who you are in Christ Jesus? It is of great importance for each of us to realize and understand our place in Christ so that the enemy cannot enslave us. Not knowing who we are as a child of God makes us vulnerable to the tricks and schemes of the devil. Deception enslaves and places shackles on God's people. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know His Word and to understand what is the lie and what is the Truth! Our worth is not in and of ourselves but who we are in Him. Our true identity is who our Creator created us to be. Our Creator knows each of us intimately and desires us to know Him intimately. Our Heavenly Father who created us and knew us before the foundations of the world loves us very much. His desires for us are for our good and not our harm, to give us a hope and a future. He desires for us to know His love, joy and peace in our lives as well as His freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! Whom the Son sets…

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt.4 (how the enemy entices the vulnerable and tries to silence the strong)

The enemy will preoccupy himself  with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power and intelligence. He has a form of godliness which identifies with a haughtiness. The vulnerable will look to him as being strong because he seems to carry himself with confidence. This confidence he portrays is deceiving because it is not a confidence in God which is true humility, but a self-confidence conjured up in arrogance or a false humility. Those who do not know who they are in Christ because they are not in tune with His Holy Spirit, will put men like this upon pedestals and follow them, which plays right into the hand of the enemy, for it is this kind of people that the enemy encircles himself with. The ignorance of babes, those who are not clothed in Jesus (the armor of God), the insecure, and co-dependents he will use to his advantage for they are his enablers and his followers. Keeping the vulnerable under his control is a twisted mind game he plays as he continually misrepresents fac…

Light breaking forth!

Have you ever been studying God's Word and suddenly there is a quickening in your spirit and you have understanding that gives you deeper insight? That is what is called Revelational knowledge, or some will say a Rhema Word, which means the Word has come to life in you. At that revelational moment you begin to understand God's Word and it does pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and that it is indeed most powerful. Spiritual eyes have been awakened, and a deeper understanding comes forth. It is no longer an intellectual knowledge but a Spiritual understanding. God's Word is living and it is literally life to our whole being. When we read and study God's Word we should always pray first asking the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. For all it takes is one small quickening of the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you will be so hungry to know more that you will find yourself devouring God's Word like you can't get enou…
