Happy October Ladies! I hope you all enjoy getting to know one another this month. Here is a small excerpt from The Possibilities of Prayer by E.M. Bounds to start you off this month. I hope you find it encouraging!



"HOW vast are the possibilities of prayer! How wide is its reach! What great things are accomplished by this divinely appointed means of grace! It lays its hand on Almighty God and moves Him to do what He would not otherwise do if prayer was not offered. It brings things to pass which would never otherwise occur. The story of prayer is the story of great achievements. Prayer is a wonderful power placed by Almighty God in the hands of His saints, which may be used to accomplish great purposes and to achieve unusual results. Prayer reaches to everything, takes in all things great and small which are promised by God to the children of men. The only limits to prayer are the promises of God and His ability to fulfill those promises. 'Open thy mouth wide and I will fill it.'" --E. M. Bounds

stef... don't let the devil steal the joy that comes from reading all of the bible! i will be praying for your fear... that it dissipates entirely!

i also wanted to let you know that i am right there with you on the idea of prayer being like therapy... it is a feeling of peace that comes to me that is different than when i pray for myself... there is something amazing about communing with others and praying God's peace for them, as well as for myself. some friends and i are studying the ancient practice of the daily office... the act of praying the same prayers that people around the world are praying every three hours around the clock. it is the act of starting the morning with the call to worship and ending the day with vespers and waiting for the "divine voice" to enter our rest and fill us with eternal peace! and even greater than that, we are discussing the act of praying under a prayer shawl, in the tradition of the jewish fathers... it is all amazing. we are reading great books on the subject... email me if you want the titles, k?

for me, you can pray for my heart in regards to my miscarriage in february. i was doing really great after celebrating Levi's due date in early September, but i was reminded tonight that this month is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month and i realized that i fit into the category of those that have lost a little one. i don't want to whine, that is not my heart about it at all... i mean only to say that as much healing as has taken place, there is still a longing in me to be blessed with a baby someday, and a hurt that we lost a child that i could be holding now. i don't know if that makes sense... but that is what is on my heart tonight.

i am so glad that we get to be prayer partners this month... between you and me, (and you too leona!) i was hoping maybe we would be paired up this month!! blessings, and sleep well...

hi leona! thanks for the prayers and kind words. there is truly no way to explain the way i feel if someone hasn't been thru it... and that makes it all the harder in my opinion. it isn't something that bothers me all the time. but when it does, it hurts a lot!!

i will be praying for your boys. having dad gone is hard for everyone. i will also be praying for your greencard situation. isn't that different from citizenship? i don't understand much of that at all, just because i have never had to do it! i have an aunt that lives in canada half the year and in iowa the other half because neither she or her husband want to change citizenship... but that is the extent of what i have experienced with all that.

k... well, off to do the housework and homeschooling i am avoiding like the plague. ugh... dishes!!

A greencard is a notice of permission from the government to have permanent residency here.

hi girls!! how's the week been so far?? we have a busy one, so i am not going to be on a lot, but i wanted you to know i am thinking about you both! stephanie, how's the fear? leona, the greencard process?

i am ok... the hurt of losing Levi is better this week... thank you for praying! this week if you could pray that no one gets sick and that we make it everywhere we need to be on time and without accidents, i would really appreciate it. tomorrow is also bella's first choir concert, and i think she is a little nervous!

k, that's all for now... update me!!
