Butterfly Puppy

Another Mondaaaaay is here and we're off!!!  This will be a very busy week for me.  I have lots of DT work to catch up on and things to get done for ministry.  But first, I will go to the movies with my DH!  It has been soooooo long since we've had a 'date.'  We are waaaaay past due.  We're going to see Robin Hood.  Maybe not my fav 'chick flick,' but I am very much looking forward to seeing it.  Ya gotta have popcorn and candy and maybe even a soda - no, I think Icee.  Yes, definitely an Icee!  Classic movie munchies : )  Ooooo, I can't wait!!!

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who prayed for me on Saturday.  It was amazing!!!  God did what only He could do.  I've been praying that He would use me to speak to the people, and He showed up Big Time!  I received confirmation that night from several people about how God spoke to them.  Oh blessed be the Name of the LORD!  I am so humbled that the Creator of the Universe knows me and allowed me to be used for His Glory...simply amazing...  Do you know that He knows YOU too?  Even if you don't believe in Him, He knows about that and loves you anyway!

One thing that having cancer did for me, was break my prideful heart.  I realize that I can never be good enough. God loves us 'just because' - not only when we are good, or lovable, but He continues to love us even when we are 'bad.'  He doesn't use us because we are...as my friend would say, 'all that and a bag of chips!'  He chooses to use us even though we are imperfect.  That, my friend, is unconditional love!!!  Won't you receive it today?

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8


"If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."  Mark 4:23

...and now for my card.  I am so happy to think that God has given us the ability to create and He delights in blessing us and watching us 'bloom!
