The Mask of a Beautiful Blessing

Sometimes i think we fail to see the blessings all around us. Not simply because we just don't see them, but rather that we fail to take the time to stop and see them. Friendship is one of the many blessings that i think we overlook many times. I do and i'm sorry. I have been blessed with friends of all shapes and sizes both men and women dedicated to prayer, love, and mercy.
One thing that i know is that you all are a blessing to me and it is of God's great grace that i have you. I do not deserve friendship, let alone many great friends that take the time to pray for me, laugh with me and cry with me. Thank you for your dedication and your prayers. I love you all and I want you to know that when i forget to call for a few days or if i neglect to say thank you. I'm thanking you now and always know that i am greatful for every moment.

Taking it to the EXTREME...

This week has been a challenging one but good as well. I have been learning a lot about silence. Silence with Christ. I need this daily and i've come to see that when my "quiet times" get moved over or interrupted i long for this silence even more. I long to be still before God and hear what He has to say about things rather than me saying everything that i need to hear. This is hard, especially when you can't audibly "hear" Christ. But we can see him and feel him and know his word. He's more real to me than some of my firends on this earth and they are so close. Christ is closer though, written on my heart. I long for this silence so that i can be taught how to "be" just being is important and i think that we all nee this quiet time with Christ, He's beautiful in the way he reveals himself and his will. Thanks God.

Do you ever think about what it would be like to really get excited about something? I mean not just your average, cool!, but rather YEAH<> WOO HOO!! If we let our excitement for Jesus Christ Shout out like this, just think of how much more infectious the love of Christ would be to those who don't have him! It would spread like wildfire... Let's get excited and loud about Christ, he's worth it; more than we know!
