Thanksgiving Thankfulness

Thanksgiving was wonderful!

Family are wonderful ALL THE TIME! I love the moment to be truly Thankful for everything that the Lord has granted over the last year. It all makes me so very appreciative that at all cost - family is very special. And one of the added joys is a txt received from one of our special and loved nephews. " :) Awe thanks :) You have a great thanks giving spending it with all your girls love you."

He continually reminds me of how I am Thankful for ALL of my Family! Blessings to you sir and All of my entire Family!

This year Princess One was able to come home and it was wonderful to have all of our Princesses home together and get to spend it with family. Although I did truly miss our Prince who will soon and very soon begin to be a part of our family, ;-) !

Hearing the girls laugh and giggle and just enjoy one another gave my heart great pleasure. Joy of realizing that there is so much to be grateful for is a moment to relish the time to be able to know how blessed we truly are.

So I count it all joy to say THANK YOU to the the Lord for what he has allowed me to be given so that through him Love Lives brightly.

A look from one
of the
Wonder of the Worlds
Don't be afraid to Dream

The little girl is running at lightening speed, Her laughter from with in bubbles over and over and her imagination runs wild. The tall grass tickles her limbs beyond control and she begins to enter into another world. It is amazing.

What is she "gathering wool" about?
Does she see visions?
Does she dream dreams?
Does she live them in her heart to one day live them out?

She plays to the imagination that one day, yes one day, she will live the visions and dreams to completion.

Keep Dreaming.
Keep Reaching.
Step out in Faith.
Don't be afraid to take the Step and Jump into your Dreams.
You'll never "wonder" about the "IF" when at least you take the step and Jump in Faith.


You have been CALLED by HIM so "GO!"

Don't let ANYONE take that Dream away.

I LOVE YOU. ;-) "GO"

Seeker, who is it really?

I love how many scriptures there are on him seeking, and then allowing us the choice to select to seek him back out of FREEWILL! Jeremiah 33:3 has been one verse that has been carrying me for some time now and I am so glad that it has brought me the joy of HIM! I know that everything else is futile really.

All I have desired after discovering that I was going to be in ministry answering his call on my life was to share Jesus with those He would bring into my life. I hungered to know him since I was almost finished with my teens. When I met a youth group on an outing I knew, "I WANT WHAT THEY HAVE - because they ARE DIFFERENT." Where there obstacles? Yes. However, the rewards of eternal ramifications far out weigh the "feelings" of trying to discover "something" that is fleeting and dead.

My desire than became to pray for loved ones to come to know him. To see him. To far surpass my desires for him. I just desired for them all to choose him like he has chosen us to answer. My heart bleeds for my children to always follow HIM! Always put HIM FIRST! To die for HIM! I LOVE THEM SO and those he keeps bringing into my path. I at times have held back and for that I am learning to not with hold his gift from anyone. I am realizing how much He has given me and there is much to share. To pray for and through. I LOVE JESUS CHRIST so much that after placing my feet on foreign soil in October, my life is so different. My heart more tender than it has ever been. As I have recently learned in the past few weeks, If you'll forgive my very loose translation point - "You in America believe in God, but we in ??? (sorry I forgot where I heard this, so I don't want to misquote the location) DEPEND on GOD!" -UNKNOWN

So I inquire of you, Who is it that really depends on Jesus Christ, God's son through the guiding of the Holy Spirit to follow and seek Him back with ALL their heart? Has he sought you out already? And the answer? Therefore - (may I share) However, When we seek HIM and HIM ALONE we receive FULL SATISFACTION! I know with out a doubt he has called me since i was very very young. As I look back I have been searching him out. NOW I DESIRE HIM to be my ALL! He is coming and I am running to find him and bring as many with me as possible. I only pray that they choose him and chase him with out stopping and hold on tight to bring them to LOVE him out of serving with true passion to give love in a way that can never be reciprocated - other than to serve others!
The questions that some ask is who is the Seeker? I believe that we are all people who seek for something or maybe even someone but the one who matters above all else is. DRUM ROLL . . . .. . . . . . God- Jehovah, I AM! He has had you and me on his mind since before time! That is right. And soon, very, very soon He is coming! Coming to gather those who have listened and responded to his seeking.

"Yet a time IS COMING and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks." John 4:23

2 + 5 = 5 + 2 or is it 2+5 = 2+5

5 + 2

With the adventure of today I realized that I absolutely just LOVE the moments of now. The princesses of my life are a mirror. Let me explain. I LOVE the womb blessings that the LORD has bestowed upon us.
or is it
2 + 5

I LOVE the ones the Lord has allowed us (2) to birth (5)
and now there are seven to love from Cambodia (5) from safe home and (2) from Prevention homes

I just want them to know I am praying my one of my favorites over them ALL
Jeremiah 33:3
Philippians 4:8
Ephesians 3:20
knowing He has created them from the BEGINNING
Psalm 139!

They both come to a sum of SEVEN - Thank You Jesus!

I LOVE you ALL until the day I breath no longer on this side of HEAVEN!

wisdom from a child ;-)

Ramblings of the enjoyment called "Today" a day of Joy. The wisdom of the simple pleasure in things that matter - life. Only a Life in Jesus can give what today reminded me of!

Through my ramblings let me try and just be unedited - me.
The moments to be on two dates in less than twenty four hours = a sweet autumn weekend. The joy of these moments have be freeing. We were able to laugh, walk, go out to eat and just enjoy one another company over an appetizer, sit with hot chocolate while enjoying a football game together, which they won; laugh with the girls when we returned home.
Only to have a full day of the same! Yes date number two - WONDERFUL! More laughs, quiet walks, a nice stake dinner after fall browsing and shopping with princess number five and watching her giggle just to be with us. A bright red balloon tied to her wee little wrists and to be so excited to have new pajamas. :-) Simple pleasures today. But my favorite? Just being with him. Only to be confident that we were hearing one another like the years have given us. JOY!

We didn't need to spend money. We just enjoyed the night and day together. I enjoyed watching him smile over the simpleness to let him know that we could go to a football game and just enjoy the atmosphere. He lit up! He enjoyed the idea but our company - Jesus Christ in the simple pleasure. Also today was the same. Just talk, walk, hold one another hand be quiet and comfortable with knowing we have and continue to share a lot together.
We've grown older but that is okay. We've experience a lot together and that is why we are here - LOVE from above. Ministry - wow! Life in marriage, to the love of my life - unending. Persevere. Remain Faithful. Believe. Trust. Take up your cross. Revival. Prepare for the Harvest. Endurance. Love - true agape love! Love that has given us five beautiful Princesses and Princess Hadassah made us smile all day long today.

Allowing us to remember every time all five of them have brought us the same pleasures! Joy through Love and this wisdom they have enlighten us with! She reminded me of all five of them. And now the new seven of them that are connected forever to them! Lord Thank you so much for Kent and all the children you have given me to learn from and now the seven others in another land to connect to these here in our home. I am Blessed and wisdom was with us today Thank You, Abba, Father, God - for I know I have lost a lot here on earth but In YOU we are RICH beyond measure. This little one showed us your wisdom for that I am so humbled.
Yes today and all of yesterday has been sweet and when we sat at our lunch date and our 'server' returned to take our order a precious little princess said, "who's that?" "Taylor" "Sheeee's Perty!" and a grin of approval and a giggle as she sat with us and said, "that's okay!" and she began to "dance" in her seat but with manners.

Today made me think of the road we have traveled with one another for over the last twenty six years and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Today - I just enjoyed the simple pleasures and the wisdom received through a god fearing man and a child and her child like faith with the creation crying out to the Master - Salvation awaits all that choose to pluck it's fruit that lasts for all eternity! Riches of the world mean nothing, when left hurt and all you have is Jesus to cling to you can endure. Love is the greatest of these. Today I know I am loved and can love because he has granted forgiveness to me when I don't deserve it. Thank you Abba for wisdom and how you allowed me to see you through the last forty eight hours.

"Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are reaches and honor. her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tee of life to those who embrace her: those who lay hold of her will be blessed." Proverbs3:13-18 NIV

The wonder of it all

"Whether you eat or drink or WHATEVER you do, do it ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!"
Cor. 10:

I am amazed at so many things. Last night I had a wonderful guest stop by our home. One that wanted to share, ask questions about Cambodia, the "whys?" and watch Baht.

It still chokes me up with everything. I think about how each time one of our Princesses were born it made me think of all the things layed before them in their future. How the moment we found out that LIFE existed from conception the wonder and the desire to pray for their purity and for the men that would come into their lives to be pure as well. The years, and years of endless prayer.

As their mommy my desires were for them to Love God, Follow Jesus Christ and accept the invitation for eternal life through Salvation with Yahweh. To listen to the calling of the Holy Spirit and to follow His counsel all their days designed here on earth. For them to Love like he lived out love. To be protected from all evil and harm. It was the burden of my soul, my heart, my desire for the girls to live with a peace knowing that they are covered with the Blood of Jesus because they choose to follow. As their mommy my heart ache was for them to be holy as he is holy! That men would not harm them.

Little did I know that what took three years and four months to have an answer would change me for the rest of my life. I remember sitting and crying with one very special lady long ago over a life lost. A life that from that point I knew would be with Jesus but it still hurt because I would never see that precious face. That is how it is once again, the ache but now there are faces and names connected to the faces. Ones that mean a lot. Princesses as precious as our five Princesses that when I look into their face I also see them.

Someone needs to pray for them. Someone needs to be their voice. Someone = my heart felt prayer to be their intercessor along with interceding for M, T, F, E, HR with Passionate Agape Love and stand in the gap.

The wonder of it all for me is to know that the Holy Spirit knows my pleas. My desires. My dreams. And I believe with all my heart he hears and is answering these prayers for these precious gems called his children!

I thank You Lord Jesus for the chance that all the girls have to hear about Jesus Christ and His LOVE and they now have a treasure to accept your gift. The wonder? Not at all a question but now I know you are true and faithful and are healing. Thank You for the joy of life and allowing me to Love our girls. To be able to pray on their behalf and now there are those that are connect to their lives through the same spirit because now they are loved with deep compassion.

In Jesus Name - be with them who are yet to come. Be with them that are healing right now. Be with them who are with them. Just continue to BE! Amen and Amen!

The walk of a Princess

"Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD. " Psalm 150

How Great is Our God - Chris Tomlin
She walks down the hall way
pitter, patter
a smile cascades from ear to ear

The sound of joy through a giggle
Dress up
finding high heels

quiet . . . silence
a sigh
she reappears
hair bundled in a doo

She appears
she sighs
she walks ever so precious with each step
she looks earnestly up into his eyes - searching 'the king' for his approval
He smiles, with an extension of a gentleman's hand
'the queen' pauses with a gentle tear
they smile with the eyes of wonder

The Princess gleams
puts up her parasol
walks away on cloud nine
to be able to leave the castle and then enjoy the evening

Princess five . . . .
the days of her joy begin

Princess four . . .
so sweet and excited

Princess three . . .
ideals all her own

Princess two . . .
Beauty that is ready to fly soon, very soon to arms of interest

Princess one . . .
Flying and soon very soon
ready to be with the one called her Prince
The Kingdom belongs to Him and Him alone. However, now the earthly king . . . shines with a joy that comes from the humble gifts and honor of watching them Gleam and Glow with Joy of the Beauty from with in that was there from the beginning; Psalm 139. The queen also knows it is only T - I - M - E and all five will reside in their own kingdoms. The beauty of bitter sweetness - they are pleased and filled with joy.

Now seven other Princesses are being prayed for to be a radiant bride one day as well in a foreign land. That their Prince will honor them just like those here. God is so Good ALL THE TIME!
