NEW Begining and Relationship effort

Hi Bloggers:

Hope your weekend is going well! Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging comments! I am doing well. Summer always seems to lift my spirits! I am so excited also, because my friend Jenn who comes home July 14th. Jenn is an amazing friend! I learn so much about what a Christian should be from her, and we laugh, and she is so much fun to be with! Please pray for her as she leaves Nepal and returns to America, that God will pour his love on her like never before! I want all of you to know how much it means to have blogger friends like you!

Mom is out of town for the day in Kentucky for a surprise party! It amazing to think about just a year ago, I wasn't sure she would live let alone be taking a trip! My heart overflws with thankfulness to my God! He truly heard my prayers, I have no promise that her cancer won't come back, but I am beyond thankful God has given her his healing! Sorry I guess it just hit me afresh! By the way, did you know that having an ongoing relationship with God, takes effort on our part? Hear me here, I'm not referring to a works based doctrine. What I am writing about is found in Hosea 6:3 Let us strive to know the Lord." HCSV) We are of course saved by Grace Alone, which is something that overwhelms me! We must strive however to know the Lord to deepen our relationship with him, as well as our knowledge of him! We aren't surprised to know that sometimes our relationships with others take effort, but to be honest, I am not always willing to make the effort to deepen my relationship with God. The Creator of the Universe, made the greatest effort in all of history to pursue a relationship with me and you, and yet at times ladies, even this; is not enough to motivate us to put fourth the effort to pursue him. Okay this is from God, not me, because it is convicting me lol. We are redoing my bedroom, and it is like a new start for me. I won't give details as I want to surprise Jenn, but once she sees it, I'll post pics. Speaking of pics. Here are a few of baby Jackson and family. Hope you like my new blog layout, I may not keep it, as it more difficult to find things, but it does reflect me a bit more. Let me know what you gals think.
