~*Just a Prayer............

So I've been under allot of stress the past few weeks. (school, work, animals foundering and needing more time and effort) and I've not been handling it very well, I've been very grumpy and sad and frustrated. So today I get this verse form KLove... I think God is looking out for all of us and is very good to us. He puts us in a stressful situation to test our love and faith for Him, and to see how much we shall obey. :) I hope this helps you as much as it has helped me! Blessings on this very Beautiful Night!

For the glory of your name, O Lord, preserve my life. Because of your faithfulness, bring me out of this distress.

~ Psalm 143:11

And I will Praise You in the Storm!

 When I was a little girl I remember sitting in the kitchen in our 'old' house and watching storm come across the soy bean field in the back. I would sit with my older sister and mom and sometimes my Grandpa Tony!
 I think those are the times I will never forget because they hold some very special memories for me. Just the thought of sitting with my family is enough. But to hear a storm outside my bedroom window and remember those times, it makes me so thankful.
 Well now I'm older and living in a new house, Our kitchen window is not as big as the old one and my grandpa is not around anymore and my sister is with her little girl, and momma is busy making sure that my little sister and I have just enough and then some. But I can still watch and listen to the storms.
 I like sitting in our "sun room" and reading when it storms. All three walls are windows and provide just enough of a view so I can see the clouds and flash of lightning, and feel the thunder. It makes me feel at peace when I smell the rain coming, and feel alive when the wind blows. I love storms. "And I will Praise You in the Storm!" (I forget where that one is from.) But i do. I praise God for every drop of rain.

~*While I wait Paiently*~...

 "How Long Will You Make Me Wait? I Don't Know How Much More I Can Take..."
  (To Whom It May Concern - The Civil Cars)

It's Spring, time to plant the garden and flowers and wait! I always have to wait. My Boyfriend is in China for a business class and I have to wait 21 more days till he comes home!
 I have to wait for school to be over! I have to wait on God's time!! (Ecclesiastes. 3:1-8)
But most of all I have to wait for My Beloved! Whom God is taking care of for me as He is taking care of me for him! I have always loved the "Praying for my Beloved" because it puts your full trust in God and in His timing! I have read many blogs and devotions about this and this has made me feel some what happy. Because every time I pray for my beloved I feel closer to God and feel like my beloved is praying for me.
 There are a lot of things we must wait on. Sometimes I really hate to wait sometimes. Like when you are baking chocolate chip cookies and they are in the oven and you have to wait for them to bake. Then you have to take them out then you have to wait for them to cool. That is the kind of waiting I don't like.
 I also don't like waiting for e-mails form my boyfriend! It's hard cause he is almost twelve hours ahead of us! It's so funny, I sent him an e-mail this morning and I told him good night but it was 930am here! It's great.
 Sigh I also can't wait for camp. I love camp and I can't wait for school to be over.

When I left for school today my little sisters nanny goat was in labor, When I got home form work there were two Baby Boys!! They are so cute but we kind of wanted and needed girls!! Awe well you get what you get! Well that is all for now. I hope you can wait for my next post! ;)
  Until we meet(again),
Love, Prayers, and Blessings,

 "Dear Whom Ever You May Be, I'm Still Waiting Patently!"
