She Stole My Purse!

I take the girls with me to the care home next door to the church about twice a week. I play a few songs to let everyone know that we are there, pray, and then I read about four chapters of scripture to those who come. We started out with about four or five people coming. Tuesday we had about twenty in attendance. Some of them come just to hear me play (poor them!); but most of them do stay to hear the reading.

Something interesting happens every week at the care home. This week a lady stole my purse. I was so busy reading that I didn’t even see her take it. She just “wheeled” right up to the table I had it on, took it, and “wheeled” herself back to her room! One of the workers interrupted me and told me what happened. They went and got her and she brought it back. She said, “I just love your purse! I wish I had one just like it.”. I assured her I would tell the lady who made it for me that she liked Mrs. Jackie, You have a fan here in Arkansas.

Until next time,

Our Week

Here a few photos sharing with you what we did this week.

Housing Update

Yesterday I started reading a book entitled, A Step of Faith.  It is the story of the Durham Rescue Mission.  I was tremendously blessed by the testimony of the founders...they also lived on the second floor of their church with two children!  Well, the official plan is to move in February.  We are still praying for the house on Eastern Avenue and it seems the Lord just may be doing a work there for us. If not, then we will live somewhere else and I will be thankful (smile).  The for sale sign is still not posted in the yard; but it is now listed online.  The Realtor said it is "wrapped up in litigation" (whatever that means) so we might as well just forget about it and look at one of the other houses she has on the market.  I say we will continue to pray.  God has a perfect place for us and until it is His time for us to have it we will just be content and happy where we are.  Thank you all for your continued prayers.

A.C.T.I.V.E. prayer

My husband shard this acronym with me and I have been using it to help keep me on track in my prayer "closet".  I decided to share it with you today.
A - Adore the Lord
C - Confess sin
T - Thank the Lord
I - Intercede
V - Voice personal concerns
E - End as you began with praise and thanks and adoration

Hope this is a blessing to you. 
Until next time,

A Biblical profession!

Recently I took the challenge given by my friend Maria to build a tent for my little beauties and I to play in.  We had SO much fun building it, playing in it, reading in it, and sleeping in it.  I'd like to share some phots of the fun with you.  If you haven't done it yet...go ahead.  Take the challenge!

Aaliyah tries it out.  Hmmm...It needs lighting for tonight.

Add sleeping bags.

You might be wondering why I entitled this "A Biblical Profession".  Paul was a tent maker.
Acts 18:1-3 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth; And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.

A Family Affair

Since 2008 we have had a family garden.  When I was a child I remember my mom planting a garden.  She has a GREEN thumb.  We really enjoyed harvesting the cherry tomatoes.  Well, I didn't really participate in my Mom's garden -other than eating from it. When we were newly married my husband told me that one of his desires was to have a garden; so I decided to make his desire come to pass.  He came home from work one day to find a huge mess in the backyard...but he didn't mind after he found out why it was there!  We really enjoyed that garden.  It was my prayer garden.  I spent a lot of time in prayer for us and others while I was working in that garden.  The following are a few photos from our first garden.  Click here  to view more.

This year I am happy to report our garden did better than last year.  Last year we only had four pepper plants and four tomato plants.  This year we had tomatos, bell peppers, onion, a corn (litterally - the floods we had caused all but one seed from both plantings to rot), squash, green beans, lettuce, and watermelon.  It truly was a family affair! We had a great time tilling, planting, weeding, and watching it grow.  Now we are enjoying eating from it.  To view a few more photos click here.
