It all started with getting more and more frustrated with the way things were going at the grand kids house. I ended up trying to keep up with two households and taking care of the kids. Recently I began to realize--Thank You Lord!--that I was expecting my daughter and her fiance to live the way I expected them to. I was praying about it, but not wholeheartedly trusting Him to take care of it. Believe me, it doesn't work that way. Our Pastor has talked on this so many times, but it never sunk in until now.
I hated the way they were living, the way the kids were being taken care of, I just did not like the situation period. The kids complained as well. They were not happy. I would try talking to our daughter and she would get upset with me and make excuses. I was tired of hearing them. Boy some mom huh? So I pushed myself to keep it all up, and then get mad cuz it would go right back to the way it was during their days off.
Then all of a sudden all the health issues come into play and I am not able to take care of them. Then I was frustrated. Now what was going to happen to those kids. Spent time crying about it, praying about it, again, not whole heartedly. I thought I was, but looking back, not a chance.
Then one day the Lord spoke to me and said, "Why are you fretting so. Just trust in Me. Haven't you realized that yet? I'm trying to get your attention to make you realize, you can't and don't have to do it all. You need to rely on Me. You need to trust in Me." Wow! What was I doing? I knew all that, but I was letting the enemy lead me and didn't realize that. I was wanting to believe in the Lord, but instead was doing so half heartedly. I still worried even though I said I placed the problem in His hands. (shaking head in shame).
So the on again off again went on. Tried to keep myself busy and most of the worry had gone away. I knew I had to let it go, as it was affecting my health. What good was I to anyone if I was always down with headache or feeling ill, etc?
Then came Friday morning. Oh Thank You Lord for Your precious timing and waking up! I decided I wanted to listen to worship music while riding the bike. Now mind you, I haven't picked up my i-pod in some time. Pretty sad. Well it needed to be charged. So I hooked it up, and then the thought of Michael W. Smith came to mind. So I looked up his music. A New Hallelujah is one of my favorites. Talk about picking up ones spirits. So I listened to that a couple of times, then decided to listen to all of his tunes. I had no idea how many good ones he has, and some just lifted me, so I purchased some of them. I was just praising, worshipping, praying, talking to Him and my spirits were so lifted. That whole day I felt like I was dancing. It felt soooo good to be filled again. Something was changing inside me. I felt God working in me. Yes!!!
The next day we had the grand kids. It was a wonderful day. So filled with happiness and love. The children felt it as well and were happy campers! I read the Bible, and I mean really read it--more on that soon. I was just so filled. Hubby called me while I was dropping off the kids and told me to get to the church right away, don't worry about how you look. I was like no way. He said yes, it's okay. I said no it isn't. I'm all sweaty and stinky. He says it's okay, just come as you are, hurry, Benny Perez is speaking. I said he'll be there tomorrow, I'll hear him then. Hubby was upset, but said okay.
Sunday, I got up feeling great. Went to the Bible and decided on a Bible plan. I'm reading Matthew, Genesis, Psalms and Proverbs. One chapter at a time. But this time, I'm READING it. My problem in the past--and Pastor talked about this before, but it never sunk in--I felt like I had to read it, and had to read it in a year. I'm a slow reader, so I started reading it, but not taking it in. I was frustrated as I was not holding it all in. Duh! So now, I'm reading it slowly, listening to what it is saying, and taking notes. I'm not just reading and highlighting trying to get through it. If I read it in a year, okay, if not, no big deal. The important thing is, I'm reading it and learning from it. Yeah!!! Sad isn't it with how some like myself take so long to wake up to this very fact?
I go to church and hear Benny Perez, a Pastor at a church--sad, but I don't remember the name of it now--in Las Vegas. Wow!!! Can this man preach! He is a powerful man of the Lord. I mean he had me feeling what he was saying. I could feel the Lord moving in powerful ways. I was amazed. I wish he could have kept talking for another hour or so. I was so bummed that I had not been there Sat. night. He went until a little after 8 pm that night when normally we are done at 6:30. Can you believe that!? I guess there was all kinds of healing going on. That will teach me to worry about how I look.
Last night, we had Ladies Night Out and Wendy Perez spoke. Oh my gosh! What a wonderful God heart she has. Talk about being moved. She opened my eyes to exactly what has been going wrong in me. Exactly what I needed to change. Praise God. So now I'm getting to the rest of the testimonial.
Wendy talked about Psalm 23. I've never thought of it this way, and struggled with it's real meaning and purpose. Granted I liked that Scripture, but never really fully understood it's meaning. It's talking about refraining our valley. This was on v. 3 He renews my strength. She made it so I "fully understood" that it's God and only God that can change things, make things happen, we need to go to Him on "all" things. He does everything in our lives. Now I knew this, but didn't hold on to it or use it. It finally dawned on me, I was trying to do things myself, allowing the enemy to make me think I was be lead by God, but I wasn't.
Then v. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. Fear, what good is fear? I used to worry about every little thing. Talk about paranoid. Sometimes it was pathetic. But since coming into the Lord, much of that has gone by the way side, but some of it has stayed with me. Well fear is coming from the enemy. It's a waste of time. "The shadow" of death. The "shadow." Why be afraid of a shadow? It's just a shadow. A shadow can not hurt us. So why we are walking through our valleys, we should be walking normal, upright, with no fear. Don't walk in a crouched position, ready for something to jump out. Don't take steps back in fear. No, walk through that valley knowing that God is there leading us through it. That valley was put there for a reason.
If we have a lot going on, it's a valley you can get through with the Lord. If you have kids, are trying to cook, clean house etc. It's a valley you can get through. Lean on Him, let Him walk you through it. If you are dealing with an illness or helping a loved one deal with one, allow the Lord to walk you through that valley. We can not do it alone. We can not do it ourselves. And we certainly are not going to get anywhere allowing the enemy to take control.
The one thing she said that really hit home, "Don't Do, Just Be!" Just be with Jesus! Look to Jesus for renewal. Be led by Jesus. When you feel yourself just performing, you need to go to Jesus for renewal. Don't just get by. Don't let yourself believe you have to do it all. No, when we go to Jesus, He is there with open arms, ready to lead, ready to walk you through your valley. Rely on Jesus. Just BE with Jesus!
One last thing she talked about, the rod and the staff. The staff is for discipline. The rod is for support. Sisters are there for support to one another. Now mind you, this was a Lady's night out. She was talking to us women about what we needed to remember. We need to lean on one another for support, but Be with Jesus and help one another remember that.
Get in the Word every day. Do what ever you have to, to make it happen. Don't let the enemy allow you to make excuses, like I had been doing for so long. I always thought I didn't have enough time. Sad, sad, sad. Worship Him daily. Thank Him daily. Pray every day. Ask for a covering over your family and yourself, over the church and the Pastors. Read the Word, Worship, and Pray. Make sure you are in a good Bible based church and make sure you give, give, give, for God so loves a giver. Don't give boastfully, just give from the heart, whatever God places on your heart to give.
Thank you for sticking this out with me. I so wanted to share, as hopefully there are people out there that have not come to the Lord yet that will be moved by this. If there is anyone else out there struggling, I pray this helps them as well. I've always believed in the testimony of others as being a good support, as being a way to help one another. Sharing is one way to help others in need. God Bless you all! Love to you all! Have a wonderful, beautiful, blessed week!!!
1The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.
2He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.
3 He renews my life; He leads me along the right paths for His names sake.
4 Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff--they comfort me.
5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord as long as I live.
You know, for this first time, I really read this and fully understand it's meaning and can not for the life of me understand why I had a hard time with it before. Of course that's because I wasn't being led by Jesus. I was reading it in a totally different manner if that makes sense. I wasn't "hearing" the right words, in the right sequence. Praise God for His love and faithfulness. Amen!

Granted no one wants to eat salads and sandwiches all the time. So I do have all kinds of ideas, but am trying to think of the best recipe.
First I'll throw out some ideas though.
1. Grill instead of cooking indoors. Grilling is much healthier when cooking meats anyhow, as the fat runs off of the meat. Of course, use low fat meets, such as skinless chicken. Speaking of chicken, did you know if you boil the chicken for about 5 minutes before grilling it boils off most the fat and saves on those darned pesky grease fires on the grill.
2. If you have a rice cooker, use it. There are so many things you can do with rice. Add chopped meats, black beans, kidney beans, or pinto beans, top with some salsa. Sounds yuck, but it's actually very tasty.
3. Get yourself, if you do not already own them, a grilling cookbook, an American Heart Low Fat, Low Calorie Cook Book, or any Low fat cook books. The American Heart Associations Cook book that I recently purchased is awesome.
4. On those cooler days, make up some meals ahead of time that consists of having to use the oven and freeze them (if you have freezer space of course). Purchasing a small freezer is well worth it to be able to freeze things ahead of time. I like to make up zucchini and banana bread ahead of time and freeze. Speaking of, did you know that using brown sugar instead of regular and using applesauce in place of oil, or doing half and half saves on a lot of unwanted fat and calories. And of course using wheat flour instead of white.
Okay, here's my favorite thing to do to keep from using the oven or cooking for that manner, well most the time. ;) And yes, it's salads, but with many variations.
Now for more variations, I will top with chopped low fat ham, turkey, chicken, or beef strips. Also the chicken or beef strips that come packaged to use for fajitas, I heat up in the microwave or toss them in a pan and place on the salads. The lettuce's tomatoes, black olives and cheese can be used with taco meat to make a taco salad.
A favorite dip we use on occasion consists of Whipped cream cheese light, strawberry or raspberry (you can use any flavor) low fat yogurt, and a container of cool whip free. Just mix them all together and it comes out yummy!
Now of course there are many other types of fruits that can be added to make it different. This is the fams favorite. I like to be creative and cut the watermelon into a basket.
Oh one more, take a half of a cantaloupe or honey dew. After getting its contents out, turn upside down. Use skewers and put cubes of fruit and cubes of cheese alternated on the sticks with a strawberry to top it and stick into the melon. Makes a cute decor and looks inviting.
With all the ideas above, you are getting all you need nutritionally minus your whole grains. But those can be reached through snacks and breakfast. Keeping cool, I'll take the easy and healthy way out any day!

Praise the Lord, Debra came out of the operation with flying colors. There was no blockage. She does however have a vein that is embedded to her heart that isn't normal. She will be going home real soon. The surgeon will be reviewing the test results in about a week. Please pray that the results come back just fine. God Bless you all for your prayers. The power of praycr, coming together and taking a stand. I just love His mightiness and love reigns!

Please be praying everyone for sister Debra. She has a beautiful heart for the Lord, her family and friends. If you've ever visited her blog, you know this.
As you've noticed on my side bar, she is in the hospital with heart problems. After reading Shorty Bears blog this morning, I've since learned that a muscle or something is week around her heart. They are going to have to put a tube in (well, I don't want to mess this up, so make sure to click on Shorty Bears Link on my side bar and read about it. She does not do well with anesthesia, so please, please pray. God listens to our prayers. When we take a stand together, they are heard even louder. Will you please stand with us together in prayer.
Father God, we ask that you watch over sister Debra today as they work on her heart. Be the hands of the surgeons and make sure it is done properly so that her heart starts working properly again. Be the anesthesiologist to make sure she responds well and comes out of it unscathed. Father, you know sister Debra's sweet heart. You are the Father of all good, the Father of Love, the Father of Healing. We have faith and trust in you to take good care of our sister. Please hold her and her family tightly while going through this journey in their lives. Father, I know Debra is running right now to touch the hem of Jesus' robe. For she knows she will be healed. She has that faith! Praise you Mighty Father. The Alpha and the Omega. We are asking for Your great mercy on sister Debra through these days of surgery and healing. We lift her up to you now Lord. Heal Her! In Jesus Holy Name, Amen.
God Bless you all as you pray!
May Your Cup Runneth Over
May You Always Find Shelter From Any Storm
May You Remain Good Looking and Look Good
May You Find Perfect Balance in the Company You Keep
May You Manage to Make Time For A Siesta
May All the Folks You Meet Be Interesting and Kind

1 "Do not judge, so that you won't be judged. 2 For with the judgment you use, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it iwll be measured to you. 3 Why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye but don't notice the log in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and look, there's a log in your eye? 5 Hypocrite! First take the log out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye. 6 Don't give me what is holy to dogs to toss your pearls before pigs, or they will trample them with their feet, turn, and tear you to pieces."
So for those that felt judged, I apologize as that is never my intention. Those that know me, know that. I never meant to hurt anyone. God Bless!
I've received this award from a beautiful woman, friend, and sister at Off the Beaten Trek. She is a wonderful individual whom I admire. She has such a wonderful love for God. She's a loving person who leads a very interesting life. She offers herself to helping others. She is such an inspiration with a big heart. I'm so thankful for having been led to her blog and having the chance to get to know her. If you haven't visited her blog yet, please do so by clicking here. You won't be disappointed. Instead, you will be greatly blessed! I also love how she addresses everyone as sister or brother. How wonderful is that. After all, we are all brothers and sisters. Thank you RCUBE's for your kindness. I'm so glad to know you.
Laurie made a good point about how our actions affect those around us. This is so true. It doesn't matter if we are out in public, driving, shopping, at work, or at home for example. If we act or react in a negative manner, it affects those witnessing our behavior. It's just like the commercial where it shows someone doing a good deed, someone else sees it and then goes on to do a good deed, and it keeps going, sometimes coming back full circle. We don't do it for recognition, we do it because it's right, because we are being a Godly person.
Now for my confession. I deal with road rage. Now mind you, it's gotten much, much better. But it's still no excuse. Once re-uniting in the Lord, I tried to curb it, but sometimes it still rears it's ugly little head. Sad, but true, I'll admit it. I don't honk my horn, flip someone off, or scream at them, but I do talk to them, raise my hands, glare at them when given the chance, and give them a dirty look while shaking my head.
Now what makes me better than them? I'm not, just hot headed at times. I let the enemy in way too easy at times. Yes, I'm ashamed of this behavior, and do need to pray about it a whole lot more. I need to confess to the Lord, repent, and do everything I can to end this sinful habit.
I've gotten bad with those that just have to get that one or two cars ahead. They are in a bigger hurry than anyone else. Or those that like to zip in and out, expecting people to get out of their way. (Which I can hear Pastor Ken saying, "You never know what their hurry may be for. Perhaps it's an emergency of some type.") Those that have to ride your bumper (which I know I'm going to end up regretting the reaction to this one someday), those that have to be putting on their make up, or shaving (yes, I've seen it), or talking to the person next to them not watching. And the list goes on. It drives me nuts, mainly when I have the kids in the car with me. I'll yell at them as if they can hear me under my breath most the time, but out loud sometimes with the windows up mind you. "What do you think you are doing you idiot!" "Hey, pay attention before you hurt someone." "Okay, that's it, I'm not letting you ahead of me. You should have left early enough." "If you want to take chances with your life, go do it with a tree or a brick wall. But don't do it with my grand kids life! And think of the poor people that have to respond to clean up your mess."
How pathetic is that? Very pathetic when I think about it. At the time it feels good to release that frustration. I am getting better though and instead of getting angry, I pray for the Lord to put some sense in their heads, make them safer drivers before someone gets hurt. To come into their lives if they have not accepted Him, and so forth. But I'll admit it, I still have my moments. I guess I had better get my act together and set a good example. I'm not helping that person none by getting upset, okay, angry. Anger is a bad thing to possess. Oh, and my other bad--the one that is going to get me in trouble yet--if you are riding my bumper, I like to hit the brakes (tap them) enough to let you know you are way to close and pissing me off. Grrrrr, what a horrible habit to have. I haven't done that in a while though. The last time I had done that in fact, it even scared me, as I was very upset for some dumb reason and hit the brakes a little harder than I had thought I was and scared everyone. Think the Lord was trying to get my attention? Oh I believe so. There's no doubt in my mind. So thank you Father for that warning.
The next time you get upset, try to stop yourself, ask how it will affect the people around you and what you can do differently. How can you divert that negative energy into something positive? Believe me, I know that is easier said than done, but after all, we are trying to be more like Jesus. We do want to set an example to others around us. We do want to lead others to Him. Will we accomplish that through negative behavior? No way, no how.
Wooo, thank you Lord for leading me in this post! You talked directly to my heart, and what a lesson you have given. Boy do I have some work to do. Yup, time to hit the Bible and hit it hard. Perhaps if I used that negative energy to spend more time in the Word, I would improve!
For anger kills a fool,
And jealousy slays the gullible.
A fool gives full vent to his anger,
but a wise man holds it in check.
Tear your hearts,
not just your clothes,
and return to the Lord your God.
For He is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger, rich in faithful love,
and He relents from sending disaster. (italicized to show the significance of how we should follow His example.)
I just love this one:
26 Be angry and do not sin. Don't let the sun go down on your anger.
27 and don't give the Devil an opportunity.
28 The thief must no longer steal. Instead, he must do honest work with his own hands, so that he has something to share with anyone in need.
29 No rotten talk should come from your mouth, but only what is good for the building up of someone in need, in order to give grace to those who hear.
30 And don't grieve God's Holy Spirit, who sealed you for the day of redemption.
31 All bitterness, anger and wrath, insult and slander must be removed from you , along with all wickedness.
32 And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgives you in Christ.
Is that awesome or what. It says a lot. We should be worrying about helping others in need. While typing Ephesians, I could hear our Pastor speaking, as he reminds us often, "Remember, you reap what you sow. We must learn to control our tongues." It's so true, you sow negativity, it's going to come right back at you. You start setting that negative wheel in motion. But sow gladness and love, and wow! the results are amazing.
May you all have a blessed week filled with happiness, love, prosperity, good health, and a positive atmosphere!

This weeks meme: Hodge Podge
1. MEN- Boxers, briefs or commando?LADIES-Hipsters, thongs or granny panties?
Eh, I plead the 5th thank you very much. :) That's gettin' a little too personal. ;)
2. Have you ever had an infatuation with someone on the internet?
My hubby when we first start dating after seperating for almost a year.
3. a 20 dollar bill is laying on the door step of a store as you are leaving. Half the bill sits outside the door..half in. do you turn it in or pocket it?If you were coming INTO the store when you saw it, would it make any difference in your decision?
If there is no one around, then I would defiintely take it. Now if someone were around and looking for a dropped 20, then I would give it to them and not ask questions. But, as Becca had stated in her answers; it's impossible to tell one 20 from another.
4. You just won the lottery....your family will be all over it as soon as they find out. Do you try to keep from telling them about it?
I would tell the because if I were to win, I already had it planned to share the wealth.
5. Did you ever play ' I'll show you mine, if you show me yours', when you were a child?
No, not that I can remember any how.
6. Do you remember a huge crush you had on someone while in high school?Did the crush turn into more?
Oh yeah, he was my first real love. The only one who respected me. Unfortunately I went into the military, so didn't have the chance to see if it would go further. Fortunate on the other hand, as I met my sweet hubby.
7. Have you ever had a full body massage?Were you comfortable or uneasy about being touched all over?
I've only had one, as my sister done it as a getaway/relaxation time for us. We were massaged in the same room, so it wasn't so bad. But I had the guy. So at first I was a little nervous. But once he started massaging, I was laxin' big time.
8. What do you think of wet tshirt contests?

Although the Bible does not say Trinity or Trinitarian in it, it is in fact a real word. You can find it listed in the Websters Dictionary and Wikipedia. That's as far as I had gotten when searching. But for me that was enough proof.
Hank Hanegraff has a great book out. "The Complete Bible Answer Book. Collectors Edition." Now granted there are many that do not like him very well, but he answers so many questions and this book is so helpful. I am not going to write word for word what he has written on this subject, but enough to make a point.
First of all, in the Bible in Genesis 1:26 the first example of where the idea "trinity" came from.
"God said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." Notice the use of us and our. This implies that God is making a reference to others. Now we all know there is only one God.
Then he goes on to talk about the three planks to this. One being that it is stated that there is only one God. The second that there are many passages that mention the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He also stated:"The word "Trinity"--like "incarnation"--is not found in Scripture; however, it
aptly codifies what God has condescended t reveal to us about this nature and
being. In short, the Trinitarian platform contains three planks (1) there is but
one God; (2) the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God; (3)
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are eternally distinct." (Hanegraff, H. 1984)
"The apostle Paul says that, 'there is but one God the Father'
(1 Corinthians 8:6). The Father, speaking of the Son, says, 'Your throne, O God,
will last forever" (Hebrews 1:8). And when Ananias 'lied to the Holy Spirit,'
Peter points out that he had 'not lied to men but to God (Acts 5:3-4)." (Hanegraff, H. 1984)
"The Father and Son love one another, speak to each other, (John 17:1-26), and
together send the Holy Spirit (John 15:26). Additionally, Jesus proclaims that
he and the Father are two distinct witnesses and two distinct judges (John
8:14-18). If Jesus were himself the Father, his argument would have been not
only irrelevant but also fatally flawed; and if such were the case, he could not
have been fully God." Hanegraff, H. 1984)
"It is important to note that when Trinitarians speak of one God they are
referring to the nature or essence of God. Moreover, when they speak of persons
they are referring to personal self-distinctions within the God head. Put
another way, we believe in one What and three Who's." (Hanegraff, H. 1984)
All throughout the Bible, it does talk about God as one as a central part. But
it also that God is "eternally three distinct persons," those being the Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit. (This paragraph and the next are not part of the quotes, but will not go back to regular left margin alignment. This is one problem I have with this program. If anyone knows how to fix it, please share for further posts. Thanks)
If you look at the Concordance under God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. There are many scriptures that speak of them--not necessarily all three at one time--but of them being as one.
"James R. White, The Forgotten Trinity (Minneapolis: Bethany House, 2001), and
Robert Letham, The Holy Trinity: In Scripture, History, Theology, and Worship
(Phillipsburg, New Jersey; P&R Publishing, 2004)." (Hanegraff, H. 1984)

Tank tops that are longer help hide the bulge(s). Those that have the layered look can distract from the center as well.
I like blazers for those moments when you are feeling a little self conscious and want to use something to hide those bulges and look nice.

I tell you, I must be literally glowing by now with all the MRI's and x-rays taken in a years time.
Then we went on to the feet. This is a downer, but am trusting and believing in the Lord. (more below about my feet, felt compelled to add Scriptures here). This thought just come into my mind when it was filled with the words, Come Lord Jesus come, won't you come my Lord. The song on the next post just seems so befitting for today. Wow! How good is He!
"Come, let us return to the Lord,
He has torn us to pieces;
now He will heal us.
He has injured us;
now He will bandage our wounds."
23"Jesus traveled throughout the region of Galilee, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And He healed every kind of disease and illness."
24 News about Him spread as far as Syria, and people soon began bringing to Him all who were sick. And whatever their sickness or disease, or if they were demon-possessed or epileptic or paralyzed--He healed them all."
"That evening many demon-possessed people were brought to Jesus. He cast out the evil spirits with a simple command, and He healed all the sick. 17This fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah, who said,
I just love this song. We are singing for others for Jesus and the Holy Spirit to come and fill them along with ourselves if we are thirsty. I am so thirsty for Him!
All Who Are Thirsty: by Kutless
All who are thirsty;
All who are weak;
Come to the fountain,
Dip your heart in the stream of life.
Let the pain and the sorrows be washed away,
And the waves of His mercy,
As deep cries out to deep.
And we sing;
Come Lord Jesus Come x 4
All who are thirsty;
All who are weak;
Come to the fountain,
Dip your heart in the stream of life.
Let the pain and the sorrows, be washed away,
And the waves of His mercy,
As deep cries out to deep.
And we sing;
Come Lord Jesus Come x 4
Holy Spirity Come x 4
As deep cries out to deep x 3
And we sing;
Come Lord Jesus Come x 7
Hope you all have a blessed filled day! Just let the Lord Jesus and Holy Spirit fill you up!

But, we are all born sinners. Not one of is perfect nor will ever be. Granted what she done is terribly wrong. She hurt many that actually went through similar situations, or have lost a child, etc. Yet many of those people tried to be there for her.
When we get past the hurt it will be time to remember how our Father loves us unconditionally and we are suppose to try and be like Him. Instead of name calling and finger pointing, she is one that "really" needs our prayers. She obviously is a very sick woman that needs some help. Let's join together and pray instead of throwing daggers at her.
Granted, I don't know what it is like to lose a child and then follow someone like Beccah only to find out it was all fake. Yes, it is a very hurtful thing to do. So please, join with me to pray for her and all those she has caused pain and grief. Thank you and God Bless. May the Lord wrap His loving arms around those that have been affected by this sad prank. May you find comfort in His love. May you be able to forgive and move on and pray for her that she finds solice in the Lord our God. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
