I am up late an this is short on my half. Baby puppy Sasha kept me up most of the night. I am hoping they are all going home today. Yesterday I finished up this painting for the opening in Marble Falls. It is a beauty and I pray it will find a good home.

Did you ever notice how hard it is to stay Faith-filled when everything around you is screaming FEAR for your life? Between the tumbling, or rather FALLING stock market and the soaring gas prices... oh and do not leave out the soaring unemployement and the grocery store is a bit off right now. Many of us face thoughts of how to eat next week, or what if I loose my job... and next your health begins to fail and your blood pressure begins to rise.

Throughout the bible God has always seen His people through the difficult times. Terry's Aunt Jo, living now with the Father, always taught us to write down our prayer requests and then after they were answered to date the prayer request so we could actually see GOD WORKING. Ya know what? He does.

During this time it might be good to keep a praise journal to be positive and thankful. When those difficult thoughts begin to crowd your mind, pick up your journal and read it. REMEMBER to list those prayer requests, or make it where you can see them and date them when they are answered. Be active in Him. Practice Acceptance knowing you have no control over these things and do not allow fear to seep into your life. Remind yourself of God's great power and his mighty track record by daily reading in the bible. If you keep your praise journal, read there and watch his might track record build more. Continue to pray at all times seeking wisdom and then learn to give it all to him an Trust. Trust he has heard your requests and they will be answered in His time. Stay hopeful because time are difficult, yet you have God in control.


"Now Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1
