- This started out as a blog about our domestic adoption. So all of the older posts are about that journey. It was an interesting one, and it led us to our son, Jacob. My dream since I was a little girl was typical of most little girls. I wanted to get married, and have children and be a stay at home Mom. Although, not a very popular choice for a profession now a day, I find it very rewarding. As a matter of fact, every day is an adventure! I've been told personally that the stay at home Mom profession isn't 'work', but spend a day with me and you'll see just how much 'work' it is!!! It's blessed work!

This past week our Church had revival. It was a wonderful time! I'm sad that the services are over at Church although I know revival shouldn't be over. It's the hard preaching...the one that makes you say, "ouch" that is good for the soul. Bro. John Aldrich is a fantastic Preacher and I believe he is God's Man. He preached on Joshua 24-Judges 2 and the Parable of two chairs. The first chair was the chair where the person says, "As for me and my house we will serve the LORD". The second chair (Judges 2:7) are the elders who were around after Joshua's death, who had seen the miracles and blessings of GOD but were complacent in their own faith, the third chair (Judges 2:10) are the next (or third) generation who knew not God or the works that He had done for Israel. What a terrible thing to think that Joshua's Grandchildren didn't know GOD or the things that GOD had done for them! This was a great message! How important for me to make sure that I'm a first chair Christian, wife and mother, and to teach my children to be the same. The first Preacher, Bro. Noffsinger, preached out of Job 1:6-7 about Satan being the uninvited guest in our lives, churches and homes. He preached about how to defeat Satan and how we cannot afford to be ignorant of his devices. The first and most important point of defeating Satan is to have humility in your life. Bro. Aldrich, also, preached out of Job 1:6-7. He also, preached about not being ignorant of Satan's devices. Bro. Aldrich wasn't present when Bro. Noffsinger preached his sermon. God worked through it all and is really working in our Church. Praise GOD for His continued work in our life and for showing His Hand in our Church!
