A Little of This and A Little of That.

...Since we've talked about houses this week, here's something just for fun. I saw this and it made me smile.

...Love, love, love it when God starts connecting dots around me. I got an email today from our worship leader which included a quote from John Wesley that fit perfectly with the verses I've been pondering this week (Eph. 3:14-19). He wrote the email to share that several of us had sent the same song suggestions to him. (Get it? That sentence is a bit like connecting the dots as well!) The Lord is speaking within our church body in "themes" lately; what shows up in Sunday School shows up in the worship and in the sermon and in Bible study. I love 'God-patterns', because I'm slow and I need repetition to get it sometimes! :-)

...Praising the Lord for HEALING my friend who had post-surgery complications. Turns out that her problem was not emphysema; it was a damaged vocal cord. This could have been a terrible second choice (she's a music teacher), but she woke one morning after weeks of suffering with her voice and breathing almost completely normal. Glory to God!

...Praising God that those connected with our church's Haiti outreach were unharmed in the quake. PRAYING for His mighty intervention and work there. Truly the earth groans until His return.

...I hurt my back last week. It bothers me if I sit too long; hence, it is signaling me that my time online is up.

...but not before I let you that I'm praying for you today; a few of you have shared specific needs on your blogs the last few days, and I am lifting you to the Father for healing, peace, and joy.



  1. I know exactly what you're talking about. I love it when God connects the dots. I'm praying for your back pain and thanking God for the blessings that have touched your life.

    Blessings to you as well, LB

  2. Nice cottage link. Made me think, maybe, just maybe I could turn our funky fireplace (the one which has trouble eliminating the smoke) into a cove w/a free-standing fireplace. Especially since we don't have a proper chimney, just a stack .... less to mess with.
    I too love it when the dots connect. Repeitition. I called that "CEU"'s earlier this a.m. (Continuing Educuation Units.) I figure if business accument knows it, how much more our Heavenly Father, who made all things. We have to be reminded. Oh how He loves you and me! Amen! Love, Jenn

  3. God is all about connecting dots. I see that happening in my life. God amazes me.

    Thank you for visiting my blog recently. I'm slow to get my visits in lately. Life is full of surprises, some sweet, some not so. Nevertheless, God is good.

  4. Wait upon the LORD, He will renew your strength.

    Sending love...

  5. Oh, the cottage link was beautiful! I'm sorry that your back is hurting and pray that you are feeling better soon.

    God has been connecting some dots for me recently and sometimes, I get impatient and want to see the completed picture....but am learning to daily walk in obedience to Him, knowing that He holds the completed picture.

    Blessings to you Ginger,
