Thank you for Praying!

Dear Sweet are sooooo precious!!!!!!! Thank you for the prayers, comments and emails today. You really blessed my life...... like you wouldn't believe. God met two people today and gave them freedom!

I just walked in from being at the fencing site. I am a little tired to say the least, because now we are having to go in a half and hour earlier and I mean earlier then we did when we started working. I am not sure why.......but I want to hang in there and just do my job! I take little power naps on the way home! Sweet husband nice of him!

Anyway I am going to make this a little short.......wish I had the time back from before we worked outside the HOME! Complainer that I am!!!!!!! Forgive me LORD! I am working on it!

When my coworker came in (I had already been at work for 2 1/2 hours......I asked if we could go off to the side room. Like I say this young man is very precious to our family. I was a little nervous well a lot would be more on target! I told him I was so sorry for "ignoring" him last Friday! I explained why and that I new that I needed to keep my mouth shut......because I used to not keep quiet and would end up hurting people with my words. I didn't want to do that because I would never want to hurt him or be able to take those words back. He was so kind and forgave me.......and then after I explained why I was so upset he asked for forgiveness also. I was thankful that the Lord helped me. The thing I kept hearing in my mind was the scripture that says "A quiet answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1 I am so thankful I didn't open up my mouth on Friday! There was more to the conversation and by the time we were done we both had a ton off our shoulders. He felt bad that his actions had caused hardship for the weekend. I am learning all the time how to better love those that make me not happy. I think that it was a good thing.......he learned and I learned some things. He told me that I could write him up........for what he was not that big of deal....just kind of creepy......remember it is Halloween and people think differently about it then I do. Anyway I told him that scripture told me I needed to come to him and not to anyone else in dealing with situations like this. He said some very kind things about that he needed to have some better qualities in his life. I so want him to love Jesus again.........I can trust my God with the whole situation can't I. It was kind of precious because he seemed to be happier.....during the day.......he was singing away at different times! It blessed my heart.......I said......"you sure are happy!" I think he was! God will meet him.......we are praying.

Thank you again for listening to my ramblings. You are all very very special and I love you all......bunches!

  11. I want to send you some cookie recipes. Had to say that before I forget! Prayer please. Regarding the housing situation. I mailed my voting in! Yahoo!
    I pray for our government situation too.
    Linda you handle situations so well. I wish I were near you and could watch you in action. I was miserable today. I work with the laziest woman alive! She pawns her work on everyone and wastes the doctors time talking on personal phone calls and makes me truly miserable. I handles it terribly, not so much with her, but just with my anger as I left for lunch. I am so much better than that and I need so much prayer. If we can get the down payment secured we can buy our own home! Please pray. My kids are willing to kick in their own money if needed. I love the phamily! God is good. I need to learn to be better. Love and Blessings to you! Anne

  12. Anne I just got the goosebumps! I was in the kitchen finishing washing the dishes. I was standing there praying for you. I am not kidding. I was asking for help with your home situation. I thought I should just take a minute and write you and I came into my computer and it made the ding noise and there you were. The Lord so amazes me. Keep me posted!!!!!!! How exciting!!!!

    Hi Camile! I just had to write Anne while I had it on my mind. Yes the Lord was so both of us! Coming over to see your blog.

    Hugs ladies! me
