It's a first!

I can not think of anything to blog about.
That's right--not a single thing.
Now, I wouldn't say I am speechless---- because I am talking right now.
But, other than the book I am reading--which I am really enjoying---nothing
exciting to talk about.
A friend of mine has enjoyed reading some stuff by a guy named Smith Wigglesworth.
Now I tried once and it was --at the time--a little much for this Baptist girl.
But God has stretched my mind just a tad in the last several years, so when I found them on sale I thought I would get a few. They were only 5 dollars each--originally 13.
So I have been reading one on Spiritual gifts. I like the way he talks.
He puts it right out there, no beating around the bush.
Beating around the bush really aggravates me.
So other than my book-- I am trying to not think to much about having to find a new house. That's right, now that Julia is in school, I am to start looking for something so that we are not paying rent.
What is going to take place with our new to us house -- will be a miracle from God. I just want to let ya'll know in advance because with the prices in our area after Katrina----our money will get something that needs to be torn down. But not if my Daddy gets involved!
I got on line last night to do a little research and what I saw made me a tad nervous. But I remineded myself of the truth--my Dad owns the cattle on a thousand hills and the hills too.
Think He will let me take a little of my inheritance in advance?
I'll show you a picture a picture of what I would like to have in the mountains.
I see this place every time we go do our conference in North Carolina. I think of cool evenings sitting in front of a big fireplace-looking out over the mountains as the sun is going down.
Maybe this will be my mansion in Heaven. :)

Other than my needing to keep my eyes on my Fathers face so that I don't get lost--today was good. Paw Paw and I had a good visit with Granny. The first good one in about 2 weeks. We then took care of some bank stuff so that he would have a little peace of mind and then we had catfish po-boys.
I got home and made some meatballs and spaghetti.
Did a little laundry and homework.
Now it is ME time.
For a little while anyway.
Keith has gone to a dive meeting. Michael and he will go diving on Saturday for Michaels birthday. Hopefully they will get some fish. Last time Michael speared a 35lb amberjack. It was so good grilled and baked. It freezes great since it is not a fatty fish.

I have a question for you.
Do you like parables?
What about modern day parables?
Can you imagine what it would have been like to sit on a hillside and listen to Jesus tell one? I enjoy a good puzzle for the mind. I wonder if that is what it was like for the people?
I think we talk in parables often in blogdom. We tell a little bit from our life or another story and then we explain it in heavenly terms or heavenly examples.
Modern day parables in Blogdom.
Sounds like a good book title.
Well I guess that is all for now. Just a few thoughts. Maybe more on parables later.

I love you guys.
I think you are a special gift from God for me at this time in my life.
I pray you always leave my site feeling encouraged and loved and maybe even comforted.
I don't ever want you to leave comfortable--I pray the words God speaks through me always push you a little closer to Him.
Have a great evening.
He has created an incredible display in the heavens just for you!

Well, I personally think you are funny and witty and you always make me think...
You know, I would love to listen to some parables from Jesus, but I guess I have to wait until I get to heaven.
Love you mansion on the hill-side. For me personally, I would love to have my mansion by the ocean -- do you think there is a ocean in heaven? I sure hope so...

Have a blessed evening :)

Talking about stretching your mind...girl this Patriarch study is some deep stuff!
I've seriously been meaning to ask you about Katrina and your location. Our church (present one) is planning to go back to New Orleans some time soon.
Love right back to you my friend.

I love your heart.. I love how you open up to your friends...

Your heart is reaching out to the Holy One...As He hears you.. He is working... Maybe the not having words is where He wants you for right now... you know the "Be still and Know" part.. and hear my whispers...can't do that when we are talking... I know I am always trying to tell God what to do..smile

may you be blessed in His ever loving presence..
