My Jesus prays for me

My journal entry from Tuesday night:

"... I'm having great difficulty with surrendering to the Lord the things for which He asks.
So much so that all I do is cry. I cannot find the words or thoughts for prayer.
But as the tears and sobs came tonight I was reminded that when I don't know how to pray the Spirit and Jesus, my Jesus, pray for me. What a thought! What comfort to my breaking heart!
Also, on the way to work today I looked up in the sky to see a bald eagle flying in the sky (or at least from what I could tell it was a bald eagle).
I watched as I drove and came closer to it.
Soon it was flying right above my car, with me! I could see it glide with such grace and majesty.
As I watched I could feel God tugging at my heart, whispering to me to let go, to trust, to love Him and Him alone!
Tears formed in my eyes as my heart ached ... with pain at letting go and longing to love my Jesus and my Master as I ought!
The Lord has been so faithful, so gracious, so good, and I still fight and struggle. ..."

The country road I've come to love ...

*~:: Well, actually, these pictures are not of the road, it's a view from the road I drive everyday to work (I pulled over this morning to take some pictures). But I love the road (and the views), and where it leads. :) I love working for this family! God has blessed me greatly with this opportunity to work with them. ::~*

New blog!!

Please note, on the sidebar, that my friend Cloe has started a blog. :) She's so very excited and I'm sure it would tickle her to death if you would please pop over and welcome her into bloggie land. :) Please welcome Cloe, at Summer Hills.

Moving on ...

So ... yesterday was my birthday. It's official, I'm a year older (funny, I only feel a day older). Now ya'll can guess how old I am. :) Have fun with that ...

But seriously ...

God has been showing me that He is faithful, loving, caring, sufficient, etc.. To my shame doubts have arisen in my mind, questions, worries. Mostly about my future, marriage, life, ect.. When I start to question the things I have and the things I want, God reminds me that He has graciously provided all I need. Did you get that? All I need!! So, if I don't have it, I don't need it. Isn't it wonderful to know that you are never, ever, going to be in want of things you need. Now, that doesn't mean that you will have everything you want. I'm sure we can all think of things that we want that we don't have. But God is faithful, He is just, He is wise, He is right, He is loving, He is caring, He is wonderful!

So as I start a new year, it is my prayer that this blog would reflect Christ! It is my prayer for me (and you dear reader) that I would love Jesus as I ought, I would long for Him as I ought, that I would become more and more like Him, that He would be the only thing that fills my mind, heart and soul. As I start a new year, I want to leave past worries, sins, doubts, fears, longings and desires behind. I want to move on, I want to run the "good race" in a way so that God would be honored and glorified in all I do. I want to finish the race and hear the words "Well, done good and faithful servant." I want my Jesus, Christ, Lord, Savior and God to be pleased with how I've lived my life for Him and Him alone!

Since I have nothing of value to say ...

I will share with you my little niece, Greta. :) She's growing and growing, if you've been keeping up on Katie's blog then you already know that.

My life is busy, but good. I've been learning the hard way with some things. God has been gently pushing and pulling but I just hadn't been getting it ... until now, but as you know, you form habits and then when you learn what needs fixed it's much harder to break them then to form them. But on to happier things ... here's Greta.
