"I tell You"

Thank you Abba, Father, God for the sweet reminder through your love letter to me, us. As I am sitting with you and for Today's DAILY Scripture reading to remind me; of how before discovering your then finding you ~ I was your enemy. For the reminder of an earlier posting:
Gianna Jessen Abortion Survivor In Australia Part 1, truth story; and JJ Heller song What Love Really Means. It just refreshes my memory; How through your love, this very verse shares your love as well as the ultimate example for me to follow - DAILY!

"BUT I tell you who hear me: LOVE your enemies, DO GOOD to those who hate you, BLESS those who curse you, PRAY for those who mistreat you." Luke 6:27-28

Thank You Abba, truly thank you.

Never Once - Joplin Video

Though I walk . . . .

I will continue to walk with THEE and THEE ALONE
humbly I seek
for then thy others will receive all that you intend for me to truly express and be

Though . . . .


Though . . . .

With soft tear
whether sorrow or joy
smile or calm

Though . . . .

so That they call
I shall be

Though . . . .

As you wish


I will

Psalm 91:14 "Because he loves me, says the LORD, 'I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.' "

Today as I sit in my thoughts, much like pictures I remember of a special Ballerina; I WILL PRAISE HIM through HIS PROVISIONS through the preparation and the wait I wait her perfect timing and ques!
The Lord is awesome. Through my Faith, my walk REMAINS in HIM! For that I am truly grateful for what he is preparing. Through the moment of wait ~ it is anticipated with joy.

Matthew 13:24

So much has weaved its way into the tapestry of my life! I cling to the cross, read, read, and reread a wonderful series of written print in book form along with the greatest book EVER and count it all good. Especially since today's stretching lessons in two separate hours and a youth overview.

Life is truly amazing - TRULY and for that I AM THANKFUL! Why because the truth of His word is full of moments of incredible growing pains. Ones that are so eagerly awaited with the utmost respect of the Creator of ALL THINGS! In all things the Lord has granted greatness in all circumstances. FAMILIA, Te AMO!!!! With all that I possess this is truth from the deep inner most parts of my being.

In all things I count it pure joy my brothers, IN ALL THINGS. What a week. I discovered the joy of talking with Jen O. that it is confirmed after three years. The date is set and eagerly awaited to accomplish. Timing. Awaiting. Love. Sorrow. Wait. Pray. Struggle. Stretch. Wait. Strength. Wait. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Proposal. Wait. Preparations. Acceptance. Relationships. Confirmation. God Is Good ALL THE TIME, ALL THE TIME God Is Good. (Right Susie and many others; like we used to say at WCC back in the day?)
Bought. Baht. now it is reality of opportunity. New unexpected anticipation. Joy. The seed is growing. The fertilization and watering accepted. The breaking of new ground and soil. Now for the growth above soil. IN ALL THINGS God IS HERE!

Boy has He ever been stretching me. It's TRUE.

After a drive to meditate
say Hello to daddy
leave a message for LT
a sweet text from my LOVER
a quick conversation with all of my daughters
a drive by an "Oh Parents . . . . ;-) " insider picture.

The windows rolled down and the soothing sweet smell of dew and an odd over cast drive that came to an ending at one of my new favorite spots.
Step out in soft drops of rain
walk in and order
pick a table by the window to feel the presence of someone very special.
The sound of the broom sweeping short brisk swaths
Then to read two books.
His presence is real
washed all over and through me.
We met He and I,
It took place Over a sweet tea with Lemon
an overcast day that had the ray of sun to warm while shining upon my face
reading two wonderful printed books
one which he personally wrote and the other well guided.
They both stimulated the thoughts and amazingly they both peeked my interests.
It awakened my soul and simultaneously brought realization
even more Ana - LOVE at all costs.

Thank You so much for allowing me to sit with You today ABBA!
Thank You for sitting with then speaking to me.
Thank You for holding my hand, my heart, my every portion - THANK YOU.
Thank You for the time to converse with YOU openly and sharing yourself freely with me.
Thank You for allowing me this week.
Thank You for the very breath you've granted.
Thank You for the many individuals who are in my life and those I will yet meet.

Laughter. Smiles. Music. Silence. Wind. Rain. Sun. Clouds. Human beings. Day. Night. Single. Married.


Because YOU FIRST LOVED in the most catalyst way, for that I am ETERNALLY GRATEFUL. Jeremiah 33:3 is still showing me to keep learning and growing

Em, My, Ti, Manaithy
Shhhhh, Haddy is SLEEPING; the batteries were "recharging."
The First Day of School for THREE that involves FOUR of the FIVE!
It is also the Last time that we will have ONLY SISTERS on the First day of School!
I don't know whether the tear will fall from well . . .
I enjoyed taking this photo revealing the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.

Here is what is weird about it though:
It is the Last Year to have the three at the Highest level
A Senior
An Eighth grader
A Sixth grader
And the Last First day as a Single

Firsts AND Lasts

Seven Months Away

Wow it is so hard to believe that we are only seven months away from a grand day. SEVEN.
The time is flying by so quickly. She radiates with Joy. He smiles grandly. Life is on the precept of CHANGE. Their first and lasts of many moments are taking place for them and will continue over the course of the next few months. I just pray that every takes a deep breath and enjoys all of them for it is full of excitement of the unknown. It is also a moment to never rush and push the Master, however a moment to give it ALL over to the King and Bathe everything in the BENDED KNEES of a servitude Heart FOCUS on the KINGDOM DIVIDENDS. Request and await the answers sought for what is BEST for the future that will very soon be the PRESENT.

Jeremiah 33:3

stop praying NEVER

The one thing that makes Satan quiver with true fear is the power of the knees bending fully and trusting in the one and only true King of Jesus Christ!

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives. Colossians 1:9

The weaving of life

Oi! Uh! Hola!

I miss this vocabulary! I so miss when time goes by so quickly and as one thinks about all the special individuals that have come into ones life the heart begins to see how wonderful people are! I agree that we all have our moments. I also agree that there are times that we just go absolutely crazy with our time. Whether we use it wisely or we waste it. We all have the same 24 hours; 7 days a week; 365 day in a year. We all desire to be Loved. Therefore shouldn't we Love back in return?

I ran into so many "past" relationships individuals this week it was amazing to not realize just how much we need to simply stop, take a breath and say "Hello" to those about us! Old, new, steady - make the moments of the now a sweet hello!

So to the individuals from Brazil - OI!!!!!!
To the Yanks in America - HI!
The loved ones in South America - HOLA!
To those from other locations I don't know the dialect - GREETINGS!

Grace and Peace to everyone of you! Know that Jesus Christ has an open invitation to have you be a part of the family! I am so glad that I have had YOU in my life, my tapestry and the loom that is allowing me to being weaved by the wonderful I AM - Thank You for how your touch is part of me. As Philippians express the words so wonderfully, I to am Thankful for you and how you've touched me.
To all of you - I just want to say "I Love YOU, from the bottom of My Liver!" - Ana

Wowsie, DISCIPLESHIP heart awakening

Reposted from BabybeBlessed and off of


Walter A. Henrichsen writes, “Discipling must begin with our children if it is ever to affect the rest of our culture. Before we go looking for people to disciple, we should start with our own families. For a few short years, God has entrusted our children to our care. Whether for good or bad, we will mark them for eternity.”

The Bible directs us to: “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it” (Proverbs 22:6). Our primary goal is for our kids to love God – for them to learn to know Him, walk with Him and serve Him.

So, how do we begin discipling our children? Here are a few key principles that work!

Know God Intimately
God has given parents primary responsibility for the spiritual training of their children. But many parents don’t know where to begin. Proverbs 1:7 offers an insight: without knowledge and fear of the Lord, children cannot learn anything worthwhile. Education begins with the pursuit of God—who He is and what He is like.

Many children have only a vague understanding of God’s true nature. They have been exposed to ideas about God that may not match what the Bible says. Your kids can know God intimately. Introduce them to the Lord’s character and qualities. Explore each facet of His magnificent perfection!

Love God Passionately
Jesus summed up all 613 Old Testament laws into two: love God and love people (Mark 12:30-31). But beware of the simplicity of Jesus’ words. To love God with ALL the heart, soul, mind, and strength does not mean “business as usual.” Loving God demands effort, action, and passion.
Most children today love peer approval more than they love God. They are more concerned about “fitting in” than they care about being set apart for God’s special purpose. Your kids can love God passionately. Encourage them to enjoy His presence moment-by-moment throughout the day. Determine not to lose touch with God’s Spirit. Express adoration and delight in unbroken communion with Him!

Serve God Selflessly
Most kids serve themselves before they consider the needs of others. Selfishness is natural—part of being human. But God extends a higher calling to His followers. The Lord challenges Christians to demonstrate faithful conduct that honors God and helps people. This requires supernatural strength from the indwelling Christ (Galatians 2:20).

Lift your child’s eyes from his or her own interests to see the world from God’s point-of-view. Christ has promised to meet all our needs (Philippians 4:19). That is His job. Our job is to walk by faith, serving Him in all we do. Your kids can serve God selflessly. They will usually follow the example of their parents and influential teachers. When you model selflessness, your children will respond in kind!

Celebrate God’s Greatness Together
God is the focus of the entire universe. He enjoys being Lord of the heavens and the earth! God also deserves to occupy the central focus in the minds, hearts, and souls of every human being. Life begins and ends with Him. Determine to know God on a more intimate basis each year. The better you know Him, the better you and your children will be prepared to face life’s challenges. Celebrate God’s greatness together!


Let's disciple! Our kids are SO WORTH IT!

We wouldn't send our soldiers out to battle without proper training or weapons! They would be destroyed or fall in the hands of the enemy in the blink of an why would we send our children out in the battle field of this world? Let's give them the proper training and the proper weapon (Sword of the Spirit -God's word) to fight in this world! This all starts and ends at home. The church can only do so much and is designed to walk along side the parent.

One day we will stand before God and give an account of what He has entrusted to us. Our children are our biggest blessing, privilege and gift from the Lord.

Let's pray together and seek God's direction. He is FAITHFUL and will show us how to disciple our children. Yes there will be many mistakes along the way...He knows we are but dust, but oh how He loves us and simply desires every single thing mentioned above....

I've mentioned this before...but may we as parents LIVE OUT OUR FAITH in front of our children!! The good, bad, the ugly.... and the Grace that only comes from Christ!

to date or not to date . . . That is the question!

wow my mind was quickly put in amazement of something that Kent and I have often tried to share and show individuals. But after seeing a twitter . . . well let me just let you read for your self.

"Tips for soon-to-be college students: If your dating relationship doesn't honor God, your marriage probably won't either." Scot Irwin twitter.

Hey I was am sitting here and reflecting on many things. Like I have a daughter who is getting married. The journey to this point a bit bumpy at moments in the latter; however, I can not tell you how many times these knees have bended and fervent equity in prayer has been taken very seriously. And the quote from our college minister/dear family friend hit the nail on the head. It is not just college students who need to take heed of this quote but Human beings all together.

Why because it all stems from the heart. Soul. Integrity. Character. Morals. Ethics. Thoughts that only expose the heart of reality of the human being are exposed. Jeremiah says: " The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9

We need to realize that God is Amazing and the things of God are AMAZING with him as the FOCUS !!!!

When, where and why

When did I arrive to today? Where did the time go? Why can't the moments of sheer joy and pleasure last much longer then just a nano second?

Human beings, not human doings are so very precious! As I grow a little older I realize that time is very very precious! I can not even begin to comprehend the magnitude of the moment of the present because it is just so "quick" It is so amazing to me the rapidness of it all.

I want so much to experience so many different things that it just blows my mind.

So much has simply flooded the electrodes of the neurological processing of my very simple yet completely complex thought process. I think until it almost hurts and at other times just enjoy the immeasurable moments of solitude.

The momentary wonders of it all just absolutely blow my mind. The beginning of. The middle of. The end of. WOWSIE!

When did "he see you/me?" From before it all began. Where did it matter that it was meant to be? At the creations beginning. Why did he want it to be? Because WE/YOU/I am his "Master Piece" He has ALWAYS had YOU in mind! ALWAYS!!!!!

I am just in AWE today of the magnitude of His Grace to include us (YOU/ME) in His ultimate Plan!!!!!!! May you know that you are HIS When, Where and Why with every intention and that you are NOT a mistake!!!
