Why yes, yes I am pathetic.

Don’t you think I hide it well?

We were sitting at prayer meeting last night.  and we were doing a lot of flipping back and forth between the OT and the NT.   This particular time we were in Isaiah and were going to Matthew.  And I turned the wrong way.  Yup, back towards Genesis.  What was I thinking!!  I was so embarrassed for myself.  And my first instinct was to look around to see if anyone had noticed.  Honestly, what a pathetic reaction. 

Which brought to mind this post, and then it was all I could do not to laugh out loud at my silliness.   Honestly!   Who cares that I missed a turn. 

Although, to be very honest, and up-front with you, I do have to admit that I am one of those people who is secretly having a “sword drill” with you every time we have to turn to a new verse.  Especially if it’s a hard one–oh yeah, I’m going to beat you!

On a totally different note, look what I’m sipping my coffee from this morning:

001I won this adorable mug a few weeks back on Andrea’s blog.  It arrived earlier this week with a package of thank you notes.  If you can’t read it,  it says Psalms 25:10 “Every path He guides us on is fragrant with His loving kindness.”  (THB)

Love it!

Andrea was actually one of the first blogs that I started reading who wasn’t someone that I knew IRL.  And then she changed her name  and I lost her, but then I found her, but my crazy computer was acting up and I couldn’t leave comments on blogger blogs, and then I got a new computer and found her again.   I know!  We have quite a history.  😉

All that to say, I’m so glad that I found her again (and not just for the mug!) 

I’m off to take the truck in to get it serviced.  Yay me! My favorite thing to do.  At least it`s sunny and gorgeous here today, so M and I can go for a walk instead of waiting in the garage.

Have a wonderful day!


Monk and Neagle

Where do I even begin? I love this CD!  I think that it was Boomama who said that it makes her happy.  That is a perfect way to describe it.  So first things first:  Thank you to Boomama who set the wheels in action for this, and made us aware that this give-way was happening, and thank you also to Brain Peterson for putting this great giveaway together!  And thank you to Monk and Neagle for serving and loving their Lord, and for using their incredible gifts of music!

I’ve tried to pick a favorite song, but I just can’t.  One that I absolutely love, though, is “Hallelujah, Jesus“.  This is an amazing song of praise and worship to our Lord. 

I love this song.  I’m usually driving when I’m listening.  (And with my job, I do a lot of driving, so that’s a lot of listening!)  And as I’m singing this amazing love song to Jesus, I see myself with my arms stretched out to my God.  Praising Him with all of my being.  Oddly enough, I usually picture me on a huge hill–is this because I see that as being closer to Heaven?  But my favorite part about this song?

Hearing those three little voices singing it too, from their booster sets in the backseat!

Another of my favorites is That’s what Soldiers Do. The first time I heard this song, I couldn’t listen to it all through because I knew it would get me crying, and I was on my way to a client’s.  Although, seeing as how this particular home had a grandson who has just returned from Afganistan, I’m sure they would have appreciated the song, and my teary face! 

This is just such a great CD. I love it, love it, love it!! I’ve lent it to a friend right now, who didn’t get in on the give-away on time. Poor Jenn!  Have I mentioned how much I love it yet?!!  If you haven’t already, click on the button on my sidebar to hear some of their music.  And you can go here to pre-order the CD. 


You’ll be so glad that you did!
