A quick update and 2 epiphanies ~

GM beautiful blog family ~

Just wanted to give you a quick update.  As you know, I just finished volunteering with the Kindergartners at Mt. Hope Elementary and that season has passed.  If I were to go back this year, the commute would be an hour and a half.  I asked God to use me in my new neighborhood so tomorrow will be my first day volunteering at the Habitat for Humanity Furniture store.  I'm so looking forward to it and possibly witnessing to someone as the journey progresses. 

I'm also asking that you keep me in prayer as I have submitted my Poetry and Prose book to the Publisher and if it's God's will, it should be ready by the end of September.  (Yay)

1st Epiphany - I no longer long to be a bird, flying high in the sky wanting to disappear.  I am flying high on God's Grace and the birds visit me every single day on the beach!

2nd Epiphany - I no longer count and track the butterflies as I go about my day.  They live across the street, around the corner and down by the bakery.  They are everywhere and we are just having a ball getting to know one another.  For the first time ever, I captured a photo of the Monarch! For a preview, please click the link here (His Grace is Sufficient) WOW!!!!! I almost peed my pants with excitement (lol)

Make it a great day in the Lord and don't forget to send me your prayer request as the need arises.
Sent w/lots of love

Hey Sis,

I actually helped lay floors in a Habitat For Humanity home in June. It was a very rewarding experience. I know you and them will be mutually blessed.

See ya soon,

Hey there little brother. My first day was awesome. ALL the proceeds go to building and rebuiling homes and I'm a part of that. I love it!

Love and miss you all the time, but more importantly... you are in my prayers.

I have an awesome surprise but I can't share it w/anyone until after August 27th...

stand by ~

Hi Sweetie...
Oh I am so over the top thrilled for you. I am praying as I type that your book will be blessed and published. I know it is meant to be sweet friend. Your talents totally amaze me. What a gift you have.

Moving to a new school. Yep, God is guiding you down a new path. You reached a fork in the road. I can't wait to hear all about the new school. You are a gift to the community sweet girl. Yes you are.

This is the Miracle Weekend makeover. I am one of the hosting sites. For every comment left, Guideposts magazine will pay a dollar, to the next cancer makeover patient. Please stop by and read the story about 9 year old Charlie, and bless me with a comment. Out goal between the 4 or 5 blogs is 5,000. I know we can do it. I would appreciate it, if you pass the word around to as many friends as possible.

Thank you sweetie for a wonderful post. I love it. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

Sherry, I am working this weekend and won't have the chance to tell as many people as I'd like about your blog. I'm going to post a link and prayerfully, my visitors will pay you a visit for a great cause.

I'm on the night shift this weekend and walking a foot beat. My feet are so mad at me ;-)

Love, hugs and prayers

Your friend and sister in HIM!
