A New Year!!!!

  The years come and go so fast and I always say, that I will change this and change that, and yet I find myself never following through with completing, what needs to be changed. Although, in it all I keep holding on to God, because I know that, that is one thing, that I will never change and that is my love for God. I know that God is taking me through somethings to prepare me for what he has ahead for me. I know at times, I want to give up on everything and just cry,but I refuse to allow any pity to get in the way. I don't desire to give the enemy joy. Many times it's what we allow when we get so overwhelmed with things, we don't realize that we are only giving room for the enemy to toy with our lives.
  I desire to stay focused on the things, that I need to be more focused on, this year, Even if it means cutting back on, things that I do, that are not really important in my walk with God. I thank God for the past I have had and the future he will give. This year I want to focus on what I can do that will please God. I want to pray even more for people, not just online, but out and about too. I wanna be like Paul, who told many about the gospel even when he knew he would be jailed for doing so. Even being in prison he still spread the good news. Wherever I go I want to spread the good news more. I pray that God will keep all distractions away from me, that will lead me off the right road.

25th Anniversary

My church just celebrated their 25th anniversary, I am late on posting but it was very nice and I was glad to celebrate with my church. We had a formal banquet and I wanted to really go formal. I have only been in like one wedding and I have that dress, from that wedding which is still wearable, which shocked I wanted something new, so I got a very nice bride maids dress. I don't like having my photo taken, so I only have one photo of me in my dress, and that is my profile picture, with a very special lady. The Banquet was nice and I enjoyed it. It is nice to be apart of something formal and still give God all the praise. Below are just some photos of the people that were there.

New Season

The fall weather is approaching and I am so excited, I decided to put a fall photo I took last fall,and put it  as my background. It's an image  of a road leading to my home with beautiful fall tress around . It's like a hill, I pulled over beside the road and got out the car quickly to get the shot, because when the cars comes on that road, they speed and I didn't want to get hit.  I can't wait to capture more fall images this year.

Finished Book

 So I finished the book No Longer A Slum dog, might I add as I have before, this book has really pumped up my faith even more. As followers of Jesus, your faith needs to stay increased. This book has did this in may ways and I am so blessed, to have received this book as a free gift. Most people turn away from sad problems, but if you turn away from the sad things of this world, then you have neglected to to even try and give hope to what could be turned into something happy.   Don't misunderstand please, the word of God says  in Romans 12:15.....Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Reading this book really showed that example and less sadness really traps the enemy.  We don't want to give him any joy to him.
 All the kids in this book had a story to tell of how God brought them up out of some rough situations, some things that many adults have not even faced or what you wouldn't even want an animal to experience. It amazes me how good God is and just with one touch of love. He can change a situation around and make it seems as if it was never really there. The kids love for God became so strong, that they would share that love with their parents and even pray for them and in turn, their parents would come to know God. The kids faith was so strong, one child story in the book grandfather was blind and the child told him about how Jesus healed the blind man in the bible and he was able to see. The child faith was so strong that when the child prayed for the Grandfather he was healed and then he started following Jesus. That is just many of one of the stories in this book. The Gospel For Asia Bridge of hope centers has really blessed these kids lives and I know that God is very pleased.
 I was very encouraged in many ways, reading this book. I already desired to go to Asia and to be another light for the people. Reading this book has really got me pumped even more. I have been encourged enough to know that when I pray and ask God for something, my faith will be on a very higher level, than it has ever been. My prayer life will grow even more, I am encouraged and amazed at how these kids pray to God without being asked to do so. It is so sad that our kids her in the US is so spoiled to the the point that half of them really don't know how blessed they are, to be able for their needs to get met. Our kids can go to school for free and get free books and half of them don't even want to go. The kids in Asia fight everyday and would love to take their places. I thank that they need to show our kids what the kids in Asia go through and maybe, some of them will get in line, where they need to be.I am just so encouraged, because if God can change these people that don't have anything and they come to know him, then I know that there is still hope for people over here.
 Once again, that was a great book and I just pray that everything will be done according to God's will in Asia and that he will keep blessing the Gospel for Asia

Pray For The Children

 Some years back I was watching the news and I came across a story on sex trafficking in India. It was something that I didn't know about about and once I watched and learned about it. My heart was very broken, this was really the hands of the enemy, I could picture him in the flesh working through confused souls to hurt what God holds so dear and it is children. These children are sold into sex slavery, by the ones who has brought them into this world at such a young age only. I can not go on with all the details of how these little ones are treated. This still goes on today and I just want to reach out to them all, but I can't and I can't walk around in sad for them daily and worrying about their safety. This stayed on my heart for many days and I had no way of helping, but one thing I could do was pray. Pray is the key to everything and in all things it is what we should do, and that is what I did. I totally gave this to God.

 All of this left my mind for a while and it wasn't brought back up until I seen a movie, that was about the trafficking and I had no ideal that the movie would be about this and once again my heart felt so bad once again. I prayed for the kids again and it left my mind again. It seemed to have been like a cycle. The topic would come up many times and each time I would fell sad and yet also anger and I never really understood why, until now. God has his ways of opening our eyes to things.

 I got a newsletter from the Gospel for Asia and a free book called No Longer a Slum dog it is about the crisis of children in the world. I started reading it today. The book is filled with real life stories and how God pulled some of these kids up out of the enemies hands. I thank God for his people being all over the world and preaching the good news. I really thank the Gospel for Asia is a great out reach program and I pray that it will grow and have all that it needs to do Gods will.

 I desire to do some ministering in Asia and I am praying that God will prepare me for this journey. He may not even want me to go there, and there may be another place that he may send me before going there, but I feel very strong about this and my faith is so strong on this so much, that I will be like Paul when he went to Rome knowing he would die. I want to get the word out although it is being spreaded there already. Hearing the name Jesus being spoken from a perfect stranger can shoot your faith level even higher. I don't know what all God will do, but I will trust him and keep praying about mission and all the kids in Asia and all over the world.

Getting Ready

 Our church anniversary is about to come up and I was asked to be on the anniversary committee,I was placed over the decorating committee for the anniversary. God is doing something big, I was asked to do the beach baseball party a little after I was asked to be apart of the committee at church. I am still getting things together, I am working on the centerpieces and I had some stuff laying around the house, I wanted to practice on as an example of somewhat of what I will be doing. I will be posting my updates.

Working progress, but it will all come together, I can't wait until it is complete

Beach Baseball Party

 God is really allowing me to explore my talents, I don't know what direction he wants me to take this thing in, but I want move with it any further until he tells me to. I was asked to decorate a little girl's little league baseball party. One of the mom, that asked me to decorated wanted to do a beach theme as well, so I decided to combine it and make a Beach Baseball Party Theme. I had my ideas and ran with it and I think I did pretty good with it, the kids loved it. I was asked to do a another party and I have yet to hear back from the mom, but as I stated in another sentence, I want move until God tells me to move. I am ready to explore all the talents that he has given me, but only when he gets me the okay on it. Here are some photos from the party.

These are my candy drop flower centerpieces

No baseball is complete without peanuts, I placed inside the pink pails

One of the parents made party favors using beach pails, using her talent

Once I got all my ideas on the tables, it really fit the vision I had

A closer look

Jada looking at the centerpiece and ready to go for the candy inside the flower. This was a fun event and I enjoyed it. I also had balloons in each corner, that were the colors that was used throughout the decorations.
