Thank you

I have a totally different post in mind that will have to wait for another day, because I just had to say this first.

Friday I played Kellie's carnival, just because I thought it would be fun and I really didn't have much to say anyway.

I got a few comments. (Yah! Comments are so fun!)
But what was said, well that just overwhelmed me.

I know that most of you have been blogging for awhile and truly get this whole community that is formed here. I actually started my blog over a year ago, but it hasn't been until recently that I get why I'm doing it.
I have done my share of leaving an encouraging comment or praying for a situation that I have read about, from the Mom who is feeling overwhelmed that day to a dieing Father I will never even meet until Heaven someday. It's been like a little gift for me actually, to be able to pray for people I don't even know. I'm a stay at home mom, homeschooling my kids, trying to be everything I can for my husband, and it doesn't leave alot of time to feel like I'm doing much of anything for the Lord. So being able to lift perfect strangers up in prayer,that's a gift.

Then I do this fun little carnival and God reminds me how much He loves me.
I was trying to make a point about my clean house, not solicit some prayers. But they came anyway.
This weekend everytime I looked at my husband, I just smiled. I thought of these beautiful women out there whom I've never even met, and said (to my self) they're praying for my husband! It was overwhelming, in a good way.

So I wanted to say thank you and tell this little tid bit for others out there going through a hard time, we're praying and God hears us. And lets keep encouraging and praying for each other, ok?

You could go here , to my sweet sister,and leave an encouraging word or a prayer. Or sometimes I go here and just pray.

I know exactly what you mean. A few months ago my son nearly drown. There were no lasting effects and he recovered fully almost immediately. I can't say the same for myself though. But all the prayers that my cyber-friends sent up for me went a long, long way in helping me recover. I'm so glad you are finding that same comfort!

It's a wonderful thing - this community God has made for us in the blogosphere. I love that we can truly love and care for one another because of who we are IN HIM.

And, Father in heaven, I am so glad that You are not limited to hearing us only on Sunday mornings in church. I thank You that You hear this prayer - even as I type. And I am asking You in this moment to bring overwhelming hope and peace to O Mom's husband.
Lord, will you remind and convince him that You are not worried about his employment situation?
Assure him that You are working things out perfectly, in Your time. Please lead him to trust You fully and to give You glory for what You are doing in and around him.
I'm asking it in the wonderful, powerful, beautiful Name of JESUS.
Amen and amen!
