Won't He Do It: Church


For some time now I've been looking for a church to call home.  Not only have I been looking, but I have also been prying about it. I've visited a few churches and looked into a few before I actually went. Sometime you don't know what your walking into. If I hadn't heard of the church before hand as far as being invited or knowing someone already who went there, yes I did a little research. I didn't want any surprises.

Praise Him by Lawrence Childress

Half way through the year I just handed it over to God. And for that time I remained without a church to go to.  But in true God form, he lead me to a church.  And in true God form, He let me know that He hadn't forgot about me.  I really enjoy this church. And love the way the pastor gets deep into the word using the bible.  Not just a sermon that makes you feel good.   Hallelujah! Won't He do it!

What has God been up to in your life?  I'd love to hear about it.

Bah humbug attitude I rebuke thee


Well I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season. For me the days have just been flying by without a care.  Wasn't it just Thanksgiving. Well yesterday in a attempt to get into the holiday spirit I put up the Christmas tree.  Or should I say the Christmas tree is now up so it feels a little more like Christmas.  Cause to be truthful I had no part in putting it together or decorating it.  In another attempt, I purchased a gift for my little nephew.  I hope he enjoys it but I have to say that buying it and thinking about whether he will like it or not didn't help what seems to be my bah humbug attitude. 

Maybe it's the 70 degree weather or the commercializing of Christmas that got my attitude all bah humbug.  Whatever the cause my be, bah humbug attitude I rebuke thee.  Yes, rebuke.  The more I think about it the more I see that everything that has me feeling this way is a ploy.

You see for me to bah humbug Christmas would be me also saying bah humbug to the birth of Jesus Christ.  The real reason for the season.  So no I don't want to get caught up in buying gifts that I can give any time of year. And yes I would prefer it to be cold outside, but all that is just the worlds criteria for Christmas.  I have to remember that I'm not of this world.  So Christmas for me should not be celebrated as the world celebrates it.  

Just from writing this post I feel the bah humbug attitude being lifted.  And an attitude of joy, peace, and thanksgiving being but in its place.  Thank you Jesus

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

The Struggle


Finely, finely got around to doing this.  Y'all from all the problems of the world to trying to take pics of yourself. The struggle is real.  This was an all morning event.  And I still didn't get the shot I wanted.  I need a camera man. lol.   

Shirt: Be Still Clothing 
Pants: Walmart 
Shoes: Thrifted 
Jewelry: By Faith Accessories

But all in all I had fun and I know the more I do it the better I'll get. I took about a dozen shots with a tripod and a timer.  I had to set the timer, get in view and pose all in 10 secs.  Before long I'll be a pro.

Til' next time
